At the walls in the far reaches of the capital where the sound of Giv’s barbat could not reach, fire and sword continued to conduct a symphony of slaughter…
Notes under the cut:
A whole lot of stuff going on in this update (though really it’s a pretty succinct depiction of siege warfare), but only one brief comment —
“as stupid as a pig”: I know, pigs are actually pretty smart. But that’s what it says, heh. We dip in and out of Giv’s POV for that scene though, which is a subtle change from the usual omniscient narrator, so take that as you will.
Next time: another daring escape. (????)
