The Legion continues making preparations for the rumored upcoming battle with Thrak-Sha’s zargonians. They move their ballista up onto the roof of the Temple, and move as many refugees as possible into the Halls of Pleasure. They find Pablo, their young ex-henchman, among the refugees hand assign him to watch the iron door that leads from the Halls of Pleasure into the Pyramid. They position three scout teams – each consisting of one of the Telkaynie and one of the lowest-ranking members of the Eyes – at strategic points along the shore of Sabban-Ka’s Reservoir. Alas, the shore proves too large for their small force to watch effectively in the dark. The first the scouts know of the arrival of the zargonians is when the team positioned furthest east is ambushed by a small squad of them. Fortunately, the Legion’s scouts are able to escape to the Temple to tell their tale. The Legion responds by sounding the horn that signals their scouts and other forces to retreat into the Temple.
