Shock & Caw

The boys have been caught by surprise by the wily Ninaran, but she staves off her sword in support of aiding the travelers.  She doesn't trust the sorcerer Valthruun, but do Ebelnard, Attar and Hinklestout trust her?  So many shadows stirring. So many blades quivering.

P.S. Kinda proud of my title here.  The "caw" refers to Henkletstout as he is a devoted follower of the Raven Queen. Get it?
