Cutter's force has reached the outskirts of the city, led by the tunneling Ekuar, who must rest. First, the elves along with Drub and Flam knock out a farmer and steal his food.
Declaration of Divinity
The Grohmul Djun is a ruthless tyrant who wishes to claim absolute authority within his known universe. In eQ#4, we see him proclaim this unquestionable right before all of the city.
VenoVel finally reveals her elf-form Winnowill before the Djun, who by this point believes she is the only person to grant him this authority. He demands an outward sign of her powers.
Birth of Hell-How-undss
Winnowill returns into human form, then morphs a pack of guard dogs in to full-blown Hell-HowUnds, with huge eyes, sharper teeth, more constitution, and strange manbibles protruding from the shoulers with pitchforklike demonclaws that can climb walls. These How-unds can sense any allegiences and are specially gifted to seek out and destroy both elves and rebellion.
