I've something to tell you that will give you some pause for thought.'Scaurus climbed down from the wall after instructing Julius to keep the men inside the Dinpaladyr at their tasks.‘You'd better come with me, Centurion Corvus, I suspect I'm going to need someone to take notes of whatever it is my brother tribune has to tell me. I may well be too busy banging my head on the palisade in frustration."
