In an ice cave in the south seas, Renault the "nice" necromancer meets a legendary warrior from an age nearly forgotten. And back near Freehold, a newly (and just barely) conscious Regan divulges what she saw in the western forest.

CONTENT NOTES below:
* From 09:47-10:38 (on script pg. 63), bodily mutilation is played for laughs.
* From 15:00-16:25 (on script pgs. 68-69), the extreme violence from the end of Book 1 is verbally recounted.
* From 23:18-23:25 (on script pg. 75), a character threatens suicide in a way that is flippant and obviously insincere, and is dismissed just as flippantly.
