"The Immortal Wood is a fool's errand. I'd rather take my chances with the creatures of the marsh than try and slip past the elves of Mimameidr."
Allya turned to face the scarred, eye-patched man, feeling a twinge of annoyance at his words. "I was born in Mimameidr. Since we are just passing through, the elves should not trouble us unless we start trouble" she said.
"Can we not go further North? I have family in the Dwaerrodowns, it would be a lovely place to stop off."
"It is too far out of our way" she countered politely. "Were we to take a slower, safer route, Endibraut hall would make a far more logical point for entry to the Edge" she offered, remembering the advice Eydis had given them.
"I say we take the path through the Immortal Wood. It's the most direct route" Valya said simply.
