- Rodwen: Rodwen listens as you describe the boat you found hidden away from the shore.
- 'Yes, we found that boat. Someone went to some trouble to hide it. Isteron said he has never seen a boat like that, but he thinks it must have come from the land of the Elves, up-river. I have no reason to doubt it: it seems like the sort of boat Elves would make.
- 'Another curiosity: these Elves went to the trouble of hiding their boat, and then must have set off on foot. But they left many of their supplies behind: food, tools, garments, medicines. Why did they leave these items behind? What could compel them to leave such useful items behind? And where did they go?'
