Summary :

"With this I can Conquer the world," said Heenmor.

He was talking about the stone egg which sat on one corner of the table: a sullen grey weight lit by dull light from the twelve firestones which studded the walls of this chamber high in the Tower of the order of Arl. The everlast ochre cast no shadows.

Alish raised his eyes. "What exactly does it do?"
