Doors gave off the main chamber on both sides into smaller sleeping alcoves, and from these, at Fax’s bidding, his women hesitantly emerged. Fax sternly gestured to a blue-gowned woman, her hair white-streaked, her face lined with disappointments and bitterness, her body swollen with pregnancy. She advanced awkwardly, stopping several feet from her lord. From her attitude, F’lar deduced that she came no closer to Fax than was absolutely necessary. “The Lady of Crom, mother of my heirs,” Fax said without pride or cordiality.
Mnementh and now Canth, F’nor’s brown, extended their wings, flapping to catch their riders’ attention. F’lar stared as the dragon slewed his head back toward his rider, the great eyes gleaming like sun-struck opals. “There is a subtle strength in this valley,” F’lar murmured, gathering the import of the dragon’s agitated message. “A strength, indeed; even my brown feels it,” F’nor replied, his face lighting. “Careful, brown rider,” F’lar cautioned. “Careful. Send the entire wing aloft. Search this valley.

Few of its fields were plowed. Its pastures supported meager herds. Even its orchards looked stunted. Blossoms that had been so profuse on trees in Crom, the next valley over, were sparse, as if reluctant to flower in so dismal a place. Although the sun was well up, there seemed to be no activity in the farmholds or none near enough to be observed.
