9. Flotsam and Jetsam
They hear of whips, filth and stench, of treasures cast away and fetters broken, and of trees that walk.
In the sunshine dark tales are told – of rocks and stone torn and eaten, of rivers re-routed and floods created, of destruction that strode on wooden legs, of shooting jets of flame and of warriors as grim as ice.
They hear, too, of a wizard’s resurrection and his call for help - and of how a worm became a rat in a trap.
