We are given command of a part of the wall while Rheged, Pengwern and the High Kings warband wage war on the Saxons of the North. We begin to make friends with the Kings beyond The Wall, until a massive and bloody pictish raid draws us into a long pursuit which leads us into a cunning, well laid, trap.
We’re lucky to escape with our lives, but we lose a significant portion of the cavalry and Iateus. Cadwalader is wounded by their champion, and the wound doesn’t close until the Christians pray for it. Even then it closes only very slowly.
