“Looks like we might be just in time.” Riklauniman closed the brass flap over the end of the telescope and slid it together. “I’d wager they’re preparing to set sail soon.”
“Then we should get down there—you thinking a night attack?” Skagrun took the scope from him and shoved it into a light pack.
Riklauniman shook his head. “We’ll go just before sunset, there’ll be a lot of movement about the dockside then, and we should be able to blend in better. I want Hidana and Redis to ready their sections, they’ll be coming with us. Satha can hold a rear guard near the eastern gate, in case we need to get out quick. Tell her to bring the mounts down the cliff and into the treeline nearby.”
