You head into the trees...
This path winds through the trees, tracing the path of the Main Path. Peeking through the trees, you can see the main path but you get the feeling those on the main path can't spy you...
As you look around, you notice that there is a single Mallyrn tree here which somehow looks different from the other trees around it.
You climb up the rope ladder.
Main Guard Talan
This Talan is right in the middle of the main thoroughfare for the Order of Lorien military network. Dozens of elves move silently about, stern looks in their eyes as they hurry to deliver reports or stand their watch. They are all dressed in Elven grey cloaks, but wear an assortment of differently colored cowls - all grey, black, and, on a rare few, shining white.
A small cabinet is affixed to one wall here, containing various Guard related information.
Erinstar has arrived.
Orophin stops his assent at this point, "Mellon, I am sorry to have to do this, but I must now ask you to remain within these telain as Glynnis orders. Your bow shall await the clearing of your name in the armory."
Erinstar takes a moment before realizing what you have said. He nods slightly.
Orophin says, "Just to be clear, you are not to set foot on the ground, nor are you to cross the river via the rope bridge. Any questions ere I leave you for the armory?"
Erinstar says slowly through clenched teeth, "No sir."
Orophin nods, "Very well then." He then turns to mount the ladder to the upper levels...he stops though and turns back to you. From the folds of his cloak he produces a hankerchief, "Here, you should tend to that wound"
Erinstar takes the handkerchief, his movement slow and mechanical.
Orophin nods and turns to the ladder...
You stand now on a very carefully constructed rope bridge which forms a tight mesh from treetop to treetop. You glance down...and the vertigo almost overwhelms you! Fortunately, you can see many flets are reachable from here, and you would do well to head for one, or head back down.
You head in and hear the Elf-Sentry closes the door behind you.
This room is the weapons and armor repository for all of Lorien. Although there are no soldiers of the Guard on duty in here, you suspect that this room is watched very carefully. A large, intrictaley carved wepaons locker takes up the entire wall across from the door.
You drop Erinstar's longbow.
Main Guard Talan
Orophin nods as he passes on his way back to the Naith
You climb down the rope ladder.
As you set foot upon the ground, the rope ladder vanishes into thin air...
At the naith, Orophin emerges from the dense forest.
