Bruticus ask so that is where the spell they cast led to ? Lief says no they only had an idea of the location It was where the rivers feed from the Highlands in the Elven forest to the north . But it would make sense it would be there doesn’t this throne look like the ones we found in the outpost with the other 3 wands. as they are talking Trantin is tiring to pry the throne from the ground and it shatters. the whole place begins to shake and crumble.
