Mort inquires as to whether Kaelmar and his people are familiar with the Greenfeather ravens – Kaelmar replies that they are, and Mort asks whether the Circle can therefore be informed of the group’s intentions. Kaelmar responds that the Circle will certainly be kept up to date, one way or another.
The question of potential threats in the southeast is raised, and Kaelmar tells the group that there are no roads in that region, and that anything which dwells there should be creatures native to the region. He warns the group that with the recent disturbances, the normal inhabitants of the region may be behaving differently to usual. He also mentions that goblins are known to roam in that area, every several decades building up numbers enough to attack the elven forest but always being repelled, their leader slain, to build up their numbers for another attempt in several decades’ time. However, as the last attempt was approximately only five years ago, Kaelmar says there should be little to trouble the group beyond a few small tribes.
Mort also asks about dangers in the forest itself, but Kaelmar assures him that he had intended for the group to have one of his people as a guide until they reach the forest’s edge, someone who can show them the hidden paths familiar to the elves.
The discussion now more or less finished, Kaelmar allows the group to restock their supplies as part of their preparations for leaving.
