This was a very interesting update - I liked the inclusion of the wise woman, and her insights were straight to the bone. The whole tavern scene had a lot of local flavor to it, and was fun to read! Especially with the inclusion of the accents - well done there. I especially liked Dis and her wisdom at the end, for as much as I love Thorin, he can be a bit of a mule when he has his mind set on something. I am looking forward to seeing Hilda's visit to the old woman - and further investigation into the necromancer.
