Pos id nehc iom Tenipotis, pace hiebit bad regnet in Mensdehkerds vatan, Sommerlund.
Sub Monwolfs wanakia, id kharab Kawi monasteir buit reconstruct ed retrohv sien prever

Mensdehkerd hieb fauran prekhissen od semjecto grave jinkdousit. Monwolf ghi ne hieb

Sem wakt prever, ies Awi Magi hieb mathen ex un amin mukhabar od Autarcho Sejanoz,
cruel tyrann os Bhanar, hieb just yisen samt megil secret un drungin siens personal

Iaghi Skadhplains sont bayna Magnamunds hostilest gaivias. Ye id kerdo tos tursaykwos
oistieu xiawngja id staur poli Naaros, tun sub id waldh os Agarash iom Muazab. Yed id sigh

Aunstehgus od i yeudmi ios Autarch, bertors ios mahibe Nogh, joinskweer Bhanar unte ia

– Weysmee, Awi Magi, sagvmos destruge Naars Nogh... bet tehrbmos preter xihes id,
hieb is explien ad Monwolf. Way, ne hams ia necessar competences kay recupere

– Niet ses un facil task, hieb admitten Monwolf, bet hams lakin id double vantage om

– Yaghi, hieb yaht Rimoah, bet tehrpsiemos disfundare yant posmiddien sei volmos

Monwolf sal-eet maimourasce med tod challenge, bet alya homologhias appelleer iom

Mensdehkerd hieb deciden na-hensel ia trupps ios Autarch ed, med id hehlp im skulks, is

Mensdehkerd hieb dind iter fortrohct abord id Nebhskander kay ghehde do Pensei, id

Ja hieb eys trupps uperact id grance, spehrnd kam uno nebos em harbant akrides per id

Cada dien, messagers arriveer do id palat os Xo-lin kay mehlde nov marloubias. Yeji id
syrat ye-yod id armee ios Autarch ieg perodh, eet clar od Pensei vahsit mox pehde ep sien

Baynd pro id securitat irs milen Khea-Khan, vasyi cortoyers urs iom ad fortrehce con iom
Awo Magum abord id Nebhskander. Bet is veut souverain diwid to darm-ye, refusend
linkwes sien land ed sien subjects kun danger stohmbit proscher.

Nespekent ia iltijas os sien familia ed sien radhers, Xo-lin ghi mien in sieno nagor. Is
antrus id boltia ed ia kyudsa neren sienios maschour imperial guardia kay repulge id

Samt aghnuend kerd, Xo-lin ghi se resignit do linkwes sien palat, eger lakin is saferit stradi

Tod plan kwahsit id hol approbation os Mensdehkerd. Is acceptit aweis escorte Xo-lin ed

wehrgiet kam planen.

– Pre wassaliemos con mutu in Tazahan, Grand Mayster, iey is magos ad

Aun iom, meg baym an ia Nov Rigs vipehde sub id waldh ios zalim Sejanoz.

Un febrile activitat regnit in id thronkielken ios palat os Pensei. Ex iom senst guarde do iom

Medsu tod agitation, is veut Khea-khan tolkit con Kau-Doshin, eys derv intendant. Ir

– Ste sellgwohmen, Grand Mayster! iey is ei Kawi jahar. Som profund-ye honoret od

Mensdehkerd ei redahsit tod compliment se declarend-ye nravihto de safer in eys

– Unte minter quem oin hor, mien swamen, antwohrd is ei Kawi tiergend-ye sien chol

Mensdehkerd acceptit ed is Chayi officiero prim eys antwehrd med uno marba smeih. Pos

Mensdehkerd buit besonters impressen ab ia Kirusamis – genis gaysen qua tik ies

Chan ei dik poskwo oikarmurs ed is insistit kay Mensdehkerdo probirit un golden zirah.

– Tod protectionstype est un Ang'sei, yani un « gwitsmantel », explicit is. Solid kam
stal, legv kam coton, urand kam lieter.
Tod wehrmen eet druve-ye skaun ed is Kawi decis navehse id. Dind, dar con Chan, is tohr

– Reidsiemos nieb mutu, Swamen, declarit Chan uwnend-ye ia striepmens.

Kun bo sess ep irens reidbiestens, skohpteer silent id adgumt ios veut Khea-khan ed os

Ia strads os Pensei eent plena med bloska, cries ed duil. Ter odeer swoid ed spissa. Bet

Menxu id ek fiell clus honar-ye apter iom, Mensdehkerd kieusit ep id rlwotou ios strad un

Sekwent ia hissabs os hetman Chan, tehrbient amalan tri diens kay nake tod urb. Mae id

Ye fayront, i hielt kay dehme id lagher pro noct. I chus pro to un clin uperkeihnd un villar

invitit Mensdehkerd ad smyehre sien dorkwo con oikens cochers. Is Kawi acceptit khalal

– Sont Xi-zahrs, iey is anancend-ye ia ad Mensdehkerd.

Sosmee subpohnd ed chohx ia samt interesse : dwo baygh-ye gwaur ivoren cubes, ornen

– Tien future est swekwohrt, mien brave! mohld is ei soldat. Tien esor tib gehnsiet un

Chan aweis bahsit quodlibt bet eys fameusa Xi-zahrs ei dieugheer kay ayge tsay id moral

– Gnohskwte yu quo future vos nehmsiet, Swamen ?

Mensdehkerd acceptit, ghens ia zahrs, ann ep ia, poskwo rollih ia ghomi. Chan se clih kay

– Yu drehdsiete mult challenges ed aunmercie bois, Swamen, mohld ei is med un

Poskwo, Mensdehkerd se installit sub un wogh, norocto de ghehde bad rahate. Pos un

– Leit sigwra de Kronars bande, kwe ne ? Suwiel Chan.
– Yaghi, mien Hetman, antwohrd is soldat.

Chano manthih tunkye Mensdehkerd od Kronar eet un prever officier ios Chayi armee. So

– Pristah ad stege me, nakwohster Mensdehkerd. Vahm pites surprindes iens aptos.

Yeng acquiescit ed ei vienschit sell nassib ye khafi voc menxu is Kawi dub do id

Aun luses un secunde, is Kawi se precipitit kyens ed bir med sien Kirusami un cutt ad

Pos diehnus iom prisoner ep un ekwem, ies rik id waun. Yant arriveer, hetman Chan wohl

Ye fayront, Mensdehkerdo reperit pierni un grupp crauv qui skrit uper un drubunge. Chan

Is hetman porunc ad dwo reiders gwehme con iens, poskwo betrus id massoulia uper id

Ye id swon tos menacend strid, eys quant Kawi senses buir alertet. Is fauran parvols ed

Stayg, ies soldats os Chan galoppeer proscher kay attaque aptos i peinds. Saberghesor,

Ies wighs diehr ir ekwens poskwo joineer id caravan kay relate ia senst wakyas ad Kau-

– Mehno rallieskwnt id armee ios Autarch, betrus is ad Mensdehkerd samt

Mudhen ub ab tod menace, Chan spohd ad znayce fortrehctum. Ye fayront, id convoyo

Sohkweer id unte un wassime quardel leuk eustworts, bet Mensdehkerdo khiss lakin od

Ex okwangwl, is Kawi observit id verdia kay pites oiskape eustworts. Bet tankus sien

Yed Mensdehkerd wiern Chan ies ne dil con Agarashis os ordinar type. Sei ies chargient i,

Bet Chan refusit categoric-ye stiupes ghom ed, speit sien insistence, Mensdehkerdo

Is Kawi tentit sakwnihes sien reidbiest intizarnd-ye id signal os Chan, bet hatta pre so se

Hatta pre Mensdehkerd habiet habt wakto kay bemehne un actionsplan, oin im

Just pos id nehc es senter Brumalghast, id perambhend temperature bilud sensible-ye. Id

Quasi nohkwit kun arriveer bad ei caravan. Kau-Doshin bevis un terrible beghspacia kun is

So se precipitit do id wogh ed aunstohg princesse Mitzu consolend ays son. Is orm purt

Mensdehkerd mersit sien stalspecto do ia okwi ios wir. Eys Kawi sixto sense iom pussirit

Mensdehkerd ghi sigwrit ad Chan od isghi mieyn so wir eet sassimi. Pos ta werds, is

Tod intervention emovit id umum ed plur cortoyers approbeer jahar id haja ias

Mensdehkerd eet persuaden od so wir bihsit accusen ghaw-ye. Kay pliehge trehve el

Ye id presto diutis ios dien, Mensdehkerd hohlp hetman Chan ad destruge id malefic

– Mae leuste speh, hetman, ho un plan, ei iey Mensdehkerd. Un albatta perileus plan,

Pro Kasarian, quo el peind iskwit eet clar : vahsit sigwra tente bombarde id dakheldwor

Menxu sergeant Yeng exkardkieschit sien eins ed se elien unte id daunoskyal tiel id dwer,

Mensdehkerd eet taraghen ab id nehc os sergeant Yeng, bet is conscicit id sam fat

Glehmernd protiev id sten, is rexit poskwo sien khayr yoitkwe id helm passit do id

Un tri energia fawngdien gwohm ad plage id mur ye circa oct peds dalg ud iom ed smiss

Dind, is riskit glanzes kyid prever daunoskyal ed eys kerd quasi stopit bate kun is dyohrc,

Bet is diabolic Autarch auncovohr fujatan id presence ios Kawi. Med un voc stupen ab sien

– Cada resistence est inutil, orm merti ! Mien trupps sont quantloc, ste kern !

Mensdehkerd sa-jawieb kay challenge iom, kun un atroce gvol nabugit eys ghalv. Is
survivit id psychic attaque ios Autarch bet so diabel part-ye niek sien ziel. Unte oin instant,
is Kawi hieb id pondos od eys cap eet kapanen in un periscruven mengain. Desconcentret

Is Kawi gvohn tom bhanari officier, bet is Autarcho tun lambh iom yun Kamada ! Samt sien

cricit « khuda hafiz » ad Mensdehkerd, dind abpersnit ed fugit con sien yun ghisal sub sien

– Aman ! Salvte mien son ! exclamit Mitzu, aunspeh.

Is Kawi apterdrahsit iom Autarch, bet kun is niek id entrat ios gixiadau, Sejanoz vols ed

Tod infecto gas mierz iom Kawi ed iom kwasih gvalt-ye. Menxu eys Magnakawilm Nexus

Mensdehkerd naviex iom Autarch in un sall quos akmen hieb just collapt sub id effect uns

Ed id Autarch fiell ep sien genus emittend-ye un agonia heul. Ja bimyohrk id corpos ios
