I'm rereading and I could have sworn Conphas used a mass rape of Scylvendi prisoners to provoke an attack? But I read the initial fight and it doesn't appear? Did I fail to read it, or does it happen in a latter battle? Or am I from an alternate time line where it's in the book?  :shock:  :lol: ;)

Oh thank goodness it tied into Kiyuth - had the right historical position, just had a bad record of the revelatory point!

] The thought dizzied Cnaïur with its implications. Suddenly, everything he had witnessed and heard since joining the horde possessed different meaning: the buggery of their Scylvendi captives, the mocking embassies, even the positioning of their privies–all calculated to gall the People into attacking.



I always wondered what that line was supposed to mean. Like, did the Nansur send envoys to the Sclyvendi just to insult them? Wouldn't the Sclyvendi normally just kill foreign envoys who showed up at their doorstep, regardless of what they were saying?
