"From what I understand, the caverns lead us no where and if the thing we are followins has entered them, then we can easily assume he has set up an ambush in there. Would it not be wiser to reach a costal city before him? he will wait for us in the caverns until he gets tired and realises that we have not followed him in. He will also not know that we are already a long way towards his destination, a costal city, and that we will be waiting for him there. Better to battle this foe on ground of our choosing, not his," he said, looking at them to see if his plan made sense.
