The magi arrive at the covenant of Blackthorn, where they meet Uthrad and Moranna. They inform them of the diabolic village they had passed through. They also ask about Loria, who they are told was a filia of Wulfengard ex Miscellanea, but he has not been seen for many years.
Speaking to Ainya ex Merinita and Offa ex Miscellanea, who are the leaders of the covenant, they come to an agreement about the coming Tribunal. Blackthorn will be willing to attend, as long as the covenant of Cruentis Petram supports Ainya as Praeco.
The group heads back to their covenant, via Cad Gadu. Nothing else eventful happens on their journey home.
