Summary[edit | edit source]

Now based at the temple of Deneir in Procampur, Koja seeks to tell the truth about the Tuigan by writing and publishing a book based on his experiences, while he reminisces of his homeland of Khazari. Koja looks into printing his book and seeks funding from the city's nobles, before receiving a gift from a powerful benefactor.
