Cutter in the Wolf's hole

EQ#17 begins where EQ#16 left readers, in the dark hole of starved wolves, which is patrolled by Trolls. Amber, who watched Cutter fall into Two-Edge's trap forces Rayek to enter the cave and defend cutter. So he and Petalwing, who escaped Two-Edge's clutch, dive down to surprise the patrolling Ice-Trolls. Petalwing blinds the trolls while Rayek knocks them into the pit, and the starving wolves devour the trolls before any chance to escape.

By saving Cutter's life, Rayek pays a debt that he owes to him.

Call to Armrms

When Cutter returns to the Den of the Go-Backs, a united council is called for the first time, where Kahvi begs Cutter and his tribe to go to war against the Ice-Trolls. Smelling the allure of the Palace of the The High-Ones not far away, all of the Wolfriders are inspired to pursue this united cause, except for Leetah.

For the Go-Backs, this is the high-point of the quest. As soon as the decision is final, a great celebration of all elfkind erupts. The Recognised partnerships of the Wolfrider Clan segregate themselves from the group-sex rituals of the Go-Backs.

This is the episode where/when Rayek and Kahvi conceive an infant elf, who would grow up with the Go-Backs as Venka, born with the power of truth within her wed soul & Spirit.

Second Battle with the Trolls

The elves enter the caves through Two-Edge's trapdoor. The trolls await them here, but are outnumbered and are easily subdued, with only a minor wound to Skot.

The Ice-Trolls who have lived in the glacial mountain region have enslaved Greymung Dirt-Trolls. As the elves push forward, they find Picknose and several other trolls who are oppressed and forced to work as miners for the tougher Ice-Trolls. Cutter finds Picknose and propositions him to lead an insurrection against Guttlekraw. So the Troll-slaves turn on their conquerers in a bloddy fight of elves & trolls against troll. The elves win but when reinforcements gather, they decide to retreat through a narrow corridor, with the aid of Ekuar stone-shaping magick. #Vaya, Kahvi's firstborn daughter is left behind and slaughtered by the reinforcements, much to the dismay of Pike, who may have recognised her.
