Three months went by with no incidents. The Khenochians who had been forced to leave their home were able to return and slowly the city began to look and operate much as it had before, though it was clear that it would never be the same city. Before evacuating, the third party had set fire to many of the building and, as many of the building had roofs of wood, and some were made completely of lumber, there were many that were damaged and destroyed.

We had established and strengthened our hold over the two fronts. The one was at the base of the mountains due south of Khenochia (being just north of Keh'Arnis), while the second (the one at which we had suffered so great losses) was a few miles north of Mulinik - for the Maikin had their own base just south-east of that city, near the desert. The two were separated by a short outcrop of mountain, and were situated at the only two openings in which it was practical to enter our mountains. We had those areas build up with high walls, with many towers, and sharpened timbers situated so that they stuck out towards their valleys. Thus, with those two fronts secure, we felt ourselves more protected against the threat of Maikin invasion.

We had yet to receive any sure intelligence about the escaped Sons of Khenochia party, but rumors were coming to us daily from messengers of the east that they had entered Maikin territory and joined themselves with them. At the time we took little notice of those rumors, thinking it nigh impossible for such a thing to happen. Nevertheless we were always watchful against any threat.
