After the victory against the dragon and the half-dragon army, Ditty composed a song about the battle. It was a long ballad, describing the details of the flying machine raining fire on the half-dragon army, the epic fight with the dragon, and even Urlag’s fight with the half-dragon general. She wrote it down and sent a copy of it to Darvin, along with the memorial song about Sin and his great sacrifice, and another song about the people of the deep mines. She liked the idea of more people in the world hearing about their adventures, and listening to her songs.
After some time resting and recovering from the battle, the time came to return the engine to the Dwarves of Minorah. Ditty and Nabal travelled to Minorah with the pieces of the flying machine and the engine, which was thankfully intact. Ditty liked Nabal, and enjoyed the journey with him, even though he sometimes seemed annoyed with her constant singing and lute playing! The pair returned the engine, signing many more stacks of documents upon its return. Ditty visited the eccentric dwarf tinker and told him all about the success of the flying machine, their experience in the deep mines, and the battle with the dragon.
Nabal asked for Ditty’s help with another task, and Ditty agreed, excited for another adventure! The two adventurers travelled to a part of the woods inhabited by birdlike creatures who loved “shiny” things and were hardier than they looked. Ditty had recently discovered how to perform a new spell where she hypnotized the birds, who immediately became motionless and mesmerized by the hypnotic pattern. She kept enchanting the birds while Nabal furiously fought them. Nabal and Ditty discovered a large supply of treasure. Nabal took most of it, but Ditty found a particularly rare and special belt that she kept for herself.
Nabal and Ditty parted ways, and Ditty was hungering for more adventure. It would no longer suffice to just sing and perform in taverns. She wanted to be part of more adventures! She travelled across the sea to Hestaria and joined the White Dragons guild for several months. She loved being part of a team, and being sent on missions where her skills could really be put to use. During her stay in Hestaria, Ditty never forgot her friends Erixymachus and Nabal, and frequently sent “sendings” to tell them of her life and keep in touch. While Ditty enjoyed the challenges of being part of a guild, she didn’t feel like she connected to this group the way she did with Sin, Erixymachus, Nabal, and Urlag. She missed them dearly. Almost a year after their battle with the dragon, Ditty wanted to see Erixymachus and Nabal again. She quit the guild, and began to make her way to Estin to see them.
