Chapter Summary Edit
The Dogman and the crew part with Forley outside Carleon, as he enters the city to warn Bethod about the Shanka. The city has changed and grown, full of new construction and people.1 More importantly, Carleon is surrounded by high walls, and they could never save Forley if he fails. Even still, Forley goes.
The crew hide away, while Threetrees stand alone on a bridge waiting for the King of the Northmen’s answer. It comes in the form of one of Bethod’s Carls, Bad-Enough and his entourage. Bad-Enough throws Forley’s head in a sack at Threetrees feet. At the sight of their dead friend, the crew attack. They butcher all of Bethod’s men without mercy, even while Threetrees demands one be kept prisoner.
They bury Forley, with Threetrees saying the words over him grave honouring his self-sacrifice. In the aftermath, Threetrees makes an announcement; the enemy of my enemy is my friend, he will join with The Union to fight Bethod. Who’s coming with him?

- It's interesting to see "progress" in Carleon; new bridges, new roads, new walls, and order. It makes you wonder if Bethod really is such a tyranny.
