The group ran down the hill. A little out of breath, they quickly duplicated the task of the day before, climbing up the chimney to the south of the east gate. The ogres had shut the north gate, but the star spawn was already in the courtyard. The ogres' attention was focussed northward, and the dire wolves were barking and whining in unison. No one saw as the group made their way to the same spot between the main steading's roof and that of the kitchen, where they were out of sight from the courtyard and the watchtower.
