Chapter One

After the War


Time passed quickly after the battle of Red-Moon, though wounds were slow to heal.


The Venturers had already been six months in Torel-Ma, helping Senib to restore order and establish his kingdom. He was already proving to be a wise and benevolent ruler – ably assisted by his chief advisor, master Shrivak.


Embassies from Tir had begun to arrive a week after the decisive battle – allowing Sardil and his aides to return to other duties in Corillis.


Senib used Shalbazza’s ring to summon a new elemental lord, which he then tasked with bringing the contents of the old Sandking treasury here to supplement the royal coffers.


Senib rewarded his helpers, and friends, handsomely.


§
