Riona and Kelbis are heading south to the Elves of Ralloth.
Lots of journeying, and an encounter with a shadowy organisation called Night Sentinels while camping at The Child Wood, a cursed place (Background to this spoken of by Kelbis). They receive a warning after they have an encounter with the corrupted children of that woodland, and a revelation too which puts a haste in Riona’s need to reach Ralloth and her estranged kindred…
And that is as far as I have got, still about half way through this chapter, but who knows what may happen next… Do I have idea’s? Oh, yes I do!
Below is the last bit that was written, a part of a conversation between the stranger of the Night Sentinels, and Riona and Kelbis.
“Curious are the days of late, yet I see it tonight. Dwarves and Elves keeping company, how comes this?”
“A life debt owed, and paid in full.” Kelbis replied. “Then, offered in kind as doubt of my King’s reasoning.”
“The Forgotten King.” The cloaked stranger replied. “And you? What are your origins?”
“Undermount.” Riona replied as she studied his stance.
“The missing Queen of Kel… Here is some advice, my queen… Let not the words of the south bitter you. For they have one in there keeping who remembers well the day of fire and ice.”
“None lived but myself, you speak lies.” Riona retorted.
“I speak not of your kin, now I bid thee fairwell!” And the stranger stepped backwards into the gloom of the night and was gone.
“Not of your kin?” Kelbis questioned. “Then of who does this person speak?”
“The Peace Bringer… Kharystor.”
