Fragment 3.8 – The Guarding of the Innocent

Clad in her tunic and sandals of straw-make
Clothed as a penitent Berra was walking
Dire was the learning that Eril had doled her
Spending a season with armour in Temple

Berra quoth many would take this as resting
Safe in the Temple would stay and would guard it
I cannot rest in one place for a season
I will go forth and leave safety behind me

Up in the highlands of Greyrock walked Berra
Taking the path that the troll once had taken
She walked in freedom to show she was able
Freedom from capture and freedom from troll-fear

There Nala captured a thunderbeast infant
Ten cubits long with the hide of a bison
Five were its horns and a club its great tail was
Yet it cried out with the voice of an infant

Berra stood straight in her tunic and sandals
Saying the child was not fit for blood-letting
Stood up before her and called her to mercy
Giving the fruit of her wisdom to Nala

Diaries The Saga Of Berra — Fragment 3 7


Turning her eyes to the letter of Onjur1
Berra took word to the Temple of Humakt
Bringing the news of the Bat to her Captain
Tall Eril listened in silence to Berra

Seeking for knowledge of enemy Onjur
Erill called Berra to speak to the Rune-Lords
Questioning close all the plotting she told him
Finding in words she spoke truth for the taking

Then to the Temple her bound her tithe-service
Ordered her lessons for Lords of the Sword-cult
Speaking of Onjur she planned with Lord Heenith
D’Val of the sword-path and Graria Greatsword
