He could see Thargonites on the other side working, and moving here and there. He could hear men shouting, but he did not recognize the tongue that they spoke in.

He walked here and there, encouraging men and strengthening positions until things began to swim before his eyes...

He was running down a passageway, it looked like Syrn, but not quite...A door loomed up in front of him...The door opened and out ran some Aidarian troops. The troops ran by him without a glance...A few minutes later he heard sounds of fighting and turned to see the Aidarian troops cut down by Thargonites. The Thargonites stood there, their swords dripping with the blood of the Aidarians...Dirk ran toward them, and reached to draw his sword, only to find that he didn't have one...The Thargonites began advancing. Dirk stumbled backward until he backed into the door...Desperately he tried to turn the latch, but the door was locked...Suddenly his sword was there! He drew it and fell upon the Thargonites only to have his sword melt away like butter...The Thargonites were almost upon him...He tried the door again...It was still locked...The wound on his side began to throb...It was over...
