Just as the Siege of Capustan was starting, the Barghast, Hetan and Cafal, petitioned for an audience before the Mask Council. Hetan started to speak, but Rath'D'rek angrily interrupted her arguing that she was just about to make the same claim that the Barghast had always made--that Capustan sat on land stolen from their tribe. But this time Rath'Burn, Rath'Hood, and Rath'Queen of Dreams detected an underlying meaning beneath the usual words. Rath'Shadowthrone quickly caught on, and Rath'Oponn shrieked that some members of the Council were keeping secrets from the others. A sneering Rath'Shadowthrone walked Rath'Oponn through the logic leading to his conclusion--that the Barghast sought the holy remains of their ancestors.
