Stephen Matthews - 2019
The idea of a cave full of Normeend with their villainous ways being not far away hung like a dark shadow across the lake and heavily on Tom’s mind. He sent out teams to make traps, gather and store food and munitions ready for the day that Tom was sure would come when Sklar arrived and they would need to defend themselves. Would that be enough? He did not know, nor would he ever be sure until every vestige of that shadow, along with the fears the Normeend created, were eliminated from their world. In the process of creating their defences, more obstacles and threats came their way. Dangers to their Cave which challenged their ways and threatened their very existence came from more than one source and by both natural and human obstacles. The team, and especially Kroll, fought back. Then there were the Old Ones.
