Chapter Summary Edit
Travelling south, The Dogman is trying to scout ahead for the crew, but is struggling in the remains of a thick mist. At the Whiteflow River, the border between The North and Angland, he stops to take a drink, and comes across a dead body and then another. Rattled by the bodies, he turns and scrambles back to the others, but before he knows it, he’s grounded by a pair of monstrously strong hands clamped around his jugular. It’s Black Dow who has confused him in the mist. He mocks him as he pulls him to his feet. It isn’t just a few bodies, but an entire battlefield spread throughout the valley of Black Well. Although some of the bodies are Northmen, the vast majority are Union corpses. Bethod is winning this war.
In Ostenhorm, the capital of Angland, Threetrees and Dogman shove through the crowd of refugees to the gate to volunteer. The pedantic Union officer at the gate laughs at the idea that a group of Northmen could contribute anything to the Union war effort. Swallowing his anger, Threetrees stalks away with Dogman in tow.

- For good men or evil men, no matter the noble deeds you've done in life they don't matter, after death there’s nothing on the other side anyway. It's a bit of a depressing place really.
