Nelnardis is assigned a task by Hiril Elisbeth to lead a mission to Tal Methedras where the company of warriors will search for Killandra. This journey will lead Nelnardis to a position as Sil Maethor within the Warband.
A meeting with Sarrawen, a traveler of Arda, ends with a mutual agreement that perhaps the Warband is not suitable to her wishes to someday sail to the West. The group disbands in equal understanding and continues on the paths each took prior to the meeting.
The search group meet with Lady Elisbeth where they discover an abandoned campfire. There, they speak on matters regarding Thendryt and the lack of evidence as to his whereabouts, along with various other concerns.
