“So, it seems things are coming along nicely in that department,” Reigna said when they’d all concluded.
“Thank goodness, as it seems there’s no time to spare,” Therese, sitting at Basha’s side, commented.

You’re to make camp on this side of it, near Ethanward. That would get,” she paused in thought, “five hundred Oathtakers, give or take, nearby to respond, in the event Zarek’s troops try to cross the border there.”
Marshall and Raman each confirmed his understanding with a nod.
“Together, we’ll draw up plans for any extras you should take along to assist with your meal preparations, with your potential medical needs, and so forth.”
“Very well. I’ll let Samuel know,” Marshall said.
