I'm writing on a tablet, and I can't seem to get quotes to work here. Anyway, ChristinaRaibert, I don't think it matters what Ember means. If Angrif hasn't realized before, he certainly will now. He's an evil bastard, but he's not stupid. And I don't think he expects the *elves* to replicate his gun. He's got men to do that. The only elf he wants alive is Mender, to restore his broken manhood.
