How many times, dear traveller, will you walk the same path?


Gall of the Burned Tears, a clan that rode under Coltaine, comes, swearing their allegiance to Temul. 3,000 veterans of the desert have joined the cause. Keneb tells fist Gamet that Kalam is in Seven Cities. Strings thinks about giving up and Gesler confronts him telling him the only thing for a soldier to do is soldier. He goes to where Nether and Nil are, and the spirit of Sormo E'nath tells him he must go to Raraku, for the song, and that someone waits for him there. Nil and Nether cry that Sormo did not talk to them. They get to a river, flowing with blood, animals slaughtered by local tribes as a blessing. Tavore send sappers to create a more safe crossing, and representatives to the tribes to tell them she means no insult. They are unsure if Sha'ik will send the Whirlwind to them, making them battle wearied but (somewhat) veteraned when they arrive, or if she will let them come in clean, but without experience.
