"Patience, my friend"
Patience my friend, Patience”, speaks Lorin Darkbane as he lifts his head from the newly assigned recruit list. Twisterkahn lifts his head from his spell book, curiously studying his new arcane magic, attained on his last journey. “I have been patient, mi’lord.” Says Twisterkahn softly. “My time has come”.
