    Urash nods at Mab, takes off his backpack and, reaching in, extracts a silky Acadian robe with intricate markings. He wraps it around the spear.

    "Repairs could possibly be made with the proper precautions... but at the risk of repeating myself, we should be very careful in handling the spear."


    Turning back to Brule:
    "The ferocity of a cave lion, indeed..."

    Brule roughly pushes Uvan in front of him and starts to descend the steps from the plinth. "We'd best move now. Night will be upon us before we know it."

    Oh great, now we're updating too fast. :P


    "Aye, I don't think the beast will simply wait for us to come upon him. I fear we don't have the time to gather information. Let us be off."

    As Brule takes the southern trail that wraps around the western edge of the pool, there is a rustling in the scrub near the southern shore and seconds later a wolf about the size of a small horse emerges from the dense willows and stands pensively in the middle of the trail, its nose held high as it sniffs the air.

    "Oh, by all the hells," Mab curses under his breath and whispers, "Is that..."

    "Perhpaps what you feel, Urash, is Ulfheonar's fighting spirit....ah bloody hell." Rhenmyr readies his weapons.

    "Fine. Just fine." Marcán snaps, readying his blade.

    No green stuff, so I'm guessing that's just a big wolf?

    Mab sighs and readies his spear, whistling for the Head Drune's Dire Wolf to come out, "Try poking it with the sharp part, that usually works. Is this the Blaidd Mawr?"

    nikolokolus Fuck!

    "Wait! Hold up! I know this wolf. He was sent to protect me by the High Drune." He lowers his spear and walks up to the wolf and reaches to pet it to calm it down.

    "You have a wolf guardian?" Marcán gasps, exaggerating. He looks to Ker and Cormac. "Why didn't we get a wolf?"

    The dire wolf cautiously sniffs Mab's hand and shifts back and forth nervously. It looks over its shoulder to the south and whines. Mab and Ker both understand in its wolf-speech, that the wolf is about to depart their company.

    "What's wrong, boy? Where are you going? Why are you upset?" Mab turns to the others, "Maybe it's the spear? It may be that he knows the spear's legend and is afraid of it."

    The wolf gives a short series of yips and growls. It seems as if it's being called home. It doesn't react to the spear in any notable way.

    "Guys, how long do we most probably have before Blaidd Mawr attacks again? Maybe he's trying to hint that we should ask my High Drune about the spear's supposed bloodlust."

    "Curse it! We'd need a week to get there. What about your prisoner? Does he know of anybody nearer?"

    The dire wolf fidgets for a few more seconds and then without another sound, bounds off.

    One more thing:

    Before the wolf leaves it stares at Uvan and utters a deep-throated growl.

    "Hmm. What is with the wolves around here?" Urash opines from the back of the party.

    With the wolf gone, he adds: "We should keep going."

    Mab asks about Uvan, "Who is that man? The dire wolf seemed to have a particular aversion to him..."

    "Wolf man, tried to kill us all. Mostly Rashid, but I take great offense to a man who cuts me this deep. Marcán shows his wound.

    "Why might the wolf have disliked him? Why were you fighting him?"
