"Garden of Shards" -- Johan learns that just because something is broken, doesn't necessarily mean it's useless. There's a bit at the end of this which plays into a scene in "Storm Wrack."
"This Beaten Drum" -- Shahana and Ari come across a battlefield and deal with the ghosts who remain. This is another poem that hooks into "Storm Wrack" a bit.
"Loaf Mass" -- Ari's brother Larn and the other villagers struggle to rebuild what is left of their livelihood, working the summer fields.
"But One End" -- Shahana and Ari trade for supplies. A conflict turns violent and Ari gets a whole new look at what it means to be a paladin, compared to ordinary people.
Everyone is welcome to vote. I will keep this poll open at least until Monday morning. If there's a clear winner then, I'll close it. Otherwise I may leave it open a while longer.
