the sinking of kham brought living hell to Green far more than it did to Blue. when Red would rise in the sky of Green, dozens of days at a time, the endura came from the ruined steadings of Red, & with them the lightning. its fimament gone, its skies always flooding, Green was drowning. & as kham fell into Ys, o we did howl & yell! o misfortune, for none heard us but the zmei, grown old while the sun was still dim. the zmei, who at our call did come & with them the demons of the pale! o Blue, raise up your armies! bury your graveyards! o troglodytes rise up from your copses! o murgatroyds come down from your chandelier city! soon we sleep forever, for we cannot bear the thunder again.
