The Lyda folk are there as slaves, but the lewdness of the women allowed these black people to bastardise all other folks and dye them brown.

The Roman priests, who want to rule the whole earth, cannot stand the Gols.

(Kearenherne — ‘chosen horn or hook’ — is a stone burg that once belonged to Kelta.) Thus, the maidens of the descendants of the Kelta followers wanted it back.
