The Second Blade managed to flee Assail by boat to Lether but quickly found themselves in debt. After seven months, they left the Letherii Empire on Shurq Elalle's ship, working as pirates to pay for their passage.
They were dropped at the eastern coast of Jacuruku, planning to cross the continent and find another ship on the western side.
They succeeded in their mission, for the next time they were mentioned was when a slave galley called the Ardent pulled them from their sinking raft in the Southern Rust Sea. The Second Blade commandeered the ship and made their way to the southwest, towards Stratem, their eventual goal. They ran into a ship of Seguleh, but Iron Bars managed to defeat their spokesman, ensuring their freedom.
Before they could reach Stratem however, Garren spotted a Mare ship which then rammed and sank their vessel. They were pulled out of the water again and sold to the Stormguard for service on the Stormwall.
Guardsmen Corlo and Iron Bars were kept together on the Wall while the others were dispersed. Corlo and Halfpeck once passed each other in chains and both were shocked the other still survived. Halfpeck gave Corlo a defiant salute despite their guards and Corlo returned it.
