While Raven recovered from his wounds, the others carried him and made their way to River Dragon’s Crossing, where they saw firsthand how the Scavenger Lands were depleted by war. They drove off a group of violent press-gangers from one of the neighboring Hundred Kingdoms, called Silen. With the aid of the Crossing’s local god, they then turned southward across the Yellow River, and trekked through wild lands.
They were met at crossed paths by a Sidereal of Journeys named Ayesha Ura. She invited them to join her at a place where the Wyld Hunt could not find them, just south of Dendandsor the Silent City. She wanted to protect Raven, the fledgling Solar.
