Abject misery lies not in what the blanket reveals,
but in what it hides

King Tehol the Only of Lether


In Letheras the Adjunct Tavore plans a Reading of theDeck of Dragons. Fiddler is located, not without difficulty, and commanded to be the dealer as he is an adept of the Deck. Others are also ordered to attend. King Tehol is told of the reading by Bugg, and sends his brother, Brys Beddict, to warn the Adjunct of its danger; however she is determined to go ahead. The local mages and gods are aware of the imminent event, and Errant, the Master of the Tiles, decides to gatecrash it.

Sinn and Grub explore the Azath House and discover the skeleton of a Forkrul Assail.

Former Acquitor Seren Pedac is six months pregnant with the son of Trull Sengar. On the evening of the reading she is visited by Bugg who warns her of its danger: Errant will consider it a challenge and may attack. As the baby has inherited his father's position of Knight of Shadow, it too may be a target. Bugg promises to defend him and summons two old gods, Ursto and Pinosel, to help.
