On their way to South Tower, Heppa and Tric meet some human farmers who provide yet another perspective on the war with Mal-Ravanal. To Heppa’s delight, she also gains more insight into the human condition from them.
Once again, units from the Battle for Wesnoth video game inspired characters in this arc. Roombledoombledeur is from the Wose unit line. The so-called fancy skeleton, Mal-Uldhar is a Lich, and specifically one from the first scenario of Eastern Invasion. Tilyn, with his straw hat and pitchfork, is a Peasant, and his father Gumreddoc, back in his adventuring days, was Heavy Infantry.
