Warmark Rashan and Lord Mhoram crossed the northern plains of the Anvil Lands in confidence and in good spirits. No danger or report of danger appeared anywhere along their way.The first three nights they led an enormous army of 18,000 soldiers, ranyhyns, cords, elvens and giants.




On the fourth day, Lord Mhoram, shook hands with his War Mark Rashan "Good hunting, he said to him and Farewell my brothers." He sat back in the saddle of the horse he rode and watched as eight thousand foot soldiers walked by in cadence to a single drum. The Warmark turned Northeast heading for the Great Swamp.

Lord Mhoram turned toward Quaan, Warhaft of the third Eoman of the Warward. " Take them North...I will catch up to you in a few hours...Lord Mhoram stood watch as his great Army moved toward Commander Krytons northern compound.

Serena was restless. She needed her niece sooner rather than later. She knew that Miranda's abilities would begin to develop anytime now if that hadn't started already. She needed to get to her niece and have her in chains for the turn of the full moon in 2 weeks time for the ceremony that would strip her of her abilities and transport them into Serena, making her a true sorceress instead of just a witch. She hadn't killed her sister for nothing, although it hadn't broken her heart any to do so. Their parents had always loved the good little witch best, thinking that Serena was pure evil to the core. She chuckled, ~And oh how right they were~, she thought to herself.

"Gnash, it is time to gather our forces. Send your best men to the far reached of our realm and tell them their mistress has need of them as well as the power to make it so that they can do battle in the chill of the evening, not needing the sun to warm their blood. Go quickly. Tell Chang that he is to go with the demon prince and attack villages. Anything to give the prince something to occupy him until I have need of him. He is growing restless as well, but for him to do so is dangerous to us all. Now, go!"

Serena paced her great hall, thinking and plotting. She knew from the scouts she had watching the compound that Shiloh and Erik had returned and Chang was now anxious to make Erik pay for the death of his mate. But, it all had to be planned just right or she would lose her quarry yet again and she wasn't willing to lose Miranda a second time.

Turning swiftly, her red cloak swirled about her, as if alive and she walked down to the dungeons and her own private room where she put together potions and spells. Already, Roxy was proving an apt pupil as she was already there practicing what Serena had been teaching her. She stopped and seeing the look upon Serena's face took a step back so as not to be in her way.

Serena had already made it possible for Chang, Gnash and Tsar to be able to withstand cooler temperatures, their blood no longer cold now. She'd made it so that they could regulate their body temperature easier, which was why the tops of their heads were now red instead of green. She needed another spell to do the same only to a larger number of lizonians.

"Roxy, come here.....I have need of you, girl." Once Roxy had come to her side, Serena began barking orders to the girl, having her grab various vials and jars. She had placed a large cauldron over the fire pit, having used her powers to start a fire and began adding ingredients: Melted fat from a stillborn babe, blood of a red dragon, powdered scales of a desert sand snake and a warming stone. Then she took a sharp blade and cut her hand, dripping her blood into the now smoking cauldron and uttered these words. "Warmth of a dragon, poison of a snake, fat to hold all together and stone to make it strong. Cold blooded minions of mine, drink and be strong....drink and be warm.....drink and be strong." At the end of the spell, a flash of pure red fire spurted from the small cauldron and shot to the ceiling of the dungeon room. When all was done, which took her well over an hour to finish, she opened a large cabinet that held over a 500 small vials that were only an inch tall and a half an inch in diameter. Again, using her powers, she called to the vials to come to the cauldron and be filled only to float back to the cabinet and gently return to the shelves. Her spell complete, she all but collapsed to the floor, but Roxy caught her.

"It is done. When the other lizonians arrive, the first ones to arrive will drink of this and no longer be slow and sluggish when the evening grows chilled. They will also be stronger, harder to defeat. Now, help me to my chamber, where I can rest."

Early on the fourth-day from the castle...

Lord Mhoram watched as eight thousand foot soldiers from the light cavalry walked by in cadence to a single drum. Of the eight thousand, 4 thousand were volunteers. The Warmark Rashan turned Northeast heading for the Great Swamp. Lord Mhoram turned his attention toward the area where he fought the lizonians he rode a short distance to get there, looking for clues..anything to help him defeat this new enemy.

********************
Sixth day since leaving the castle....

Meanwhile, darkness had fallen in the middle of the day. Dark black clouds formed over the Mornmoss Forest and the great Swamp. The howling winds followed by a beating of lightning scrothed Mother Earths' surface. Several trees were burning and the eeire feeling fell over the troops. They felt as if they were prey and were being watched as they entered the narrow valley surrounding the Great swamp of Morinmoss, four men abreast over a mile long. Rain began to fall heavily.



Without any regards of the pounding rain that lashed out on the troops, lizonians from all sides of the valley suddenly came over the hill and charged. Lord Hashan was caught in a terrible bloodbath. He could hear the riots. All three men standing next his horse went down without their swords drawn.

Arrows were fired across as well as the terror that unleashed fear in his men. Some broke rank.

Almost side by side, his troops leapted to their right and left. Lord Hashan drew both swords just as his horse stumbled and fell. He leaped off the horse, standing upright, only to duck as a horizontal slash seeking his throat, caught the second sword with an edge-on -bone parry hook. Hashan's forearm, then back-hand thrust into the attacker's throat. Even as that victim lizonian began pitching forward, two more moved in to replace their fallen comrade.

Lord Hashan pushed hard, following the body as it slammed into the other assassins. All three went down, with Lord Hashan on top. The corpse between him and the live lizonians snagged one of his long swords-pulling the sword away from his hand. He stabbed thumb and index finger into the assissins' eyes, hooking with the thumb and pushing ever deeper with the finger, until the body ceased spasming.

Lord Hashan looked up and saw the winged demon flying overhead. Hearing more fighting from behind him, he pushed hisself to his feet, paused to ease free the knife in his side, cursing at the blood that gushed in the wake of the blade. He collected the snagged long sword, then staggered back into the fight. Thousands of lizonians kept coming with no end in sight...

Lord Hashan looked back at his troops one last time before half dozen lizonians pushed their swords into Lord Hashan..ending his life quickly on the battlefield amongst eight thousand foot soldiers.

Their lizonians headed in a southwest direction as the winged demon looked on and caused fear to spread over the defeated humans, those who were left standing and dying.

Miranda made it to the Varden stronghold deep within the mountain, waving a farewell to Kryton and Dacia. Her and Kryton had spoken the two nights they'd camped together under the watchful eye of Dacia and she'd found out that her suspicions were true.....Kryton was Shiloh's daughter only Shiloh didn't know it yet. She felt for the man, but it was his burden to carry and his to contend with when the truth came out.

She sought out Lord Jardony after cleaning up a bit, finding him in the dining room of the caverns. He smiled to her then grew somber at the look upon her face. He noticed that her green eyes glittered more than usual in the light and a look of understanding crosses his face. It was happening.....her abilities were awakening. He motioned to the chair next to his and waited until she'd sat down and asked her question. She told him first what had happened then she asked him, "Do you know what is happening to me, m'lord?"

"Miranda, there is much to tell you and not much time, so I will give you the short version. You come from a long line of witches....your mother having been one of the most powerful white witches of our time. But, her sister...your Aunt Serena was just as powerful...and the total opposite. Where your mother was good, Serena was just as evil. Knowing her sister the way she did, your mother bound your magick until you came of age....which you are. As the moon cycle passes, your magick will continue to awaken. It will be totally awakened in a two month time. Two moons will pass before you are ready to learn how to use and control these magicks."

Miranda sat there, taking in the news. It wasn't easy but it explained a lot. "Why did she bind me, m'lord?"

"Your mother knew that you were born a strong witch. The third daughter of the third daughter and so on. Yes, you had two other sisters whom Serena killed at birth. But you....you were spared upon seeing your eyes, Serena knew that you and you alone could make her all powerful. She has until your magicks are fully awake to take them from you in a very painful ceremony that will leave you dead. She will consume your magicks and become almost impossible to destroy as will the Lizonians who follow her. You must use all caution until your ascending is complete."

Miranda sat there, staring at Jardony...her mind struggling to take in everything she'd just learned about herself.


************************************

Kryton and Dacia arrived back at the large compound, ready to begin to get prepared for Lord Mhoram's arrival with his large army. The compound was large, huge by any standards, but Mhoram had more men than the compound could hold and preparations needed to be made for any soldiers who would have to stay outside the gates so that they would be as safe as possible. He turned Dacia over to the Dragon aides....younglings who cared for the riders' dragons when they themselves couldn't. Each dragon had one assigned to her....one who was as comfortable with her as she was with him or her. He hurried to his office, hollering at his top riders and aides, Erik and Shiloh among them.

FaNac finds Lord Mhoram and delivers the message from Lord Tiste.
Have crossed the plains and mountains of Anvil Lands...
...eighth-day ride to Maroona village near the Great Swamp, has been burnt to the ground. Evidence of a great fight and resistance by the villagers. Many males were destroyed, the women are missing. Only a dozen Lizonians found dead.



Lord Mhoram reads the message and drops back in thought. FaNac and the 2 soldiers stand still and wait.

"Walk with me for awhile, FaNac." FaNac walked with the Lord as the other 2 soldiers took up postions 20 yards in front and back of them. "So did you see Lord Hashan at all or just the aftermath of Maroona strewn dead?"

"Mi L'rd, the villiage was destroyed, only white ash and human remains. Many body parts were missing and a few soldiers were turned into stone."

"Go back with this message to Lord Tiste,"
Warmark Hashan...presumed dead including his Army
Do not advance into the Land of Aurea
Reinforce the perimeters, North and East of the Land of Anvil with scouts
Move both villages of Buttonwillow and Narguesett to Visera
Reinforce the perimeter at Buroo village

Lord Mhoram

Lord Mhoram sat alone and ate bread crumbs , then sipped water from a wooden reed. Bannor had been gone for nearly 8 months and no one had heard or seen the Lord for many months since speaking with FaNac. Just the day afterwards, sending fanac and his soldiers back to the castle. The lizards attacked his position. He fought and fought, yet noone came to his aid this time and his strength depleted quickly. He beat off the lot but after the last battle with the lizards. The urvile one struck and put his world spinning out of control. These many months he drifted from hut to hut, scavenging for food like a poor man. Slightlly overwhelmed he sat quietly eatting the crumbs and wondered if calling to his dragon...if Bannor would respond.
