By late in the day, a messenger arrived with word of Linvin’s sighting. Necromancer reveled in the confirmation of his viewpoint. Mandrean would give him no such praise.
Linvin was perhaps a day’s ride ahead. Mandrean wanted pressure maintained and knew how to accomplish the task. Since the goblins’ bodies ran on a two-day clock as opposed to humans’ single day custom, Mandrean ordered half of the division to continue the advance through the night. He, the other half and his Guard would rest and then overtake the main force on the following day. Mandrean was determined not to let Linvin escape again.
