Dried fruits, sweet and plump, candied peel glistening with sugar, brandy-wine, rich and heady, bittersweet molasses, thick as river mud, bread-crumbs soft, white as first snowflakes – yes, he had everything to make the Great Pudding for the Winter feast.

Knife-blade, honed, keen, sword oiled and razor-sharp, quiver full of new-fletched arrows; the bloodied edges of orc-knife rents trimmed away and repaired in much abused leather clothing.
