3. Supply Lines - Tanaqui

Always he is startled by their sudden appearance from amongst the dappled tree-shade, interchangeable in green masks and gauntlets. Each week a different place, and perhaps a different man to guide him.

Watching them leave, with sacks unburdened from his ponies, he is a little envious. He has never seen the place they carry his goods, though he hears of its marvels. Yet if he does not know the route, he cannot betray it: orcs might watch all the paths he treads from journey’s beginning and end.

He prays the bread he brings builds strength to defend his beloved country.
