When Kalar entered the village he was met with joyous celebration. The Morgrund had taken many of their elderly and children over time, and they were glad to be rid of it.
He looked all over for Crowstone.
“Where is he?” he asked one of the villagers.
“Gone. He left word for you to travel North. There you will meet him at another village,” one of them said.
Kalar nodded. He was on his own until he could rejoin Crowstone further North.
“We will hold a feast in your honour!” they told him.
He moved on the next morning.
