The snow hasn't stopped in two days, and in some places the drifts are already twice the height of a man. Even The Fallen will have to wait until spring before they try to cross the mountains here again.
But not all of the enemy retired ahead of the snow. For the last two hours we've watched a column of a hundred soulless, separated from their masters and obviously lost, wandering the canyons below. The Dwarves are running about like delirious children. It should be a spectacular ambush.
Rabican has held Seven Gates, and the snow has begun there as well. We have done the unthinkable. We have pushed The Fallen back to the mountains.
But our success here is tempered by Alric's failure to return west with the eastern army before winter, and The Watcher's continued presence behind us. It's not going to be an easy winter.
