"Oh, I fully intend to win the next game. But let's see how that goes, shall we?" Lares chuckles.
In the evening, Lares joins Argentius and Izri as they go searching for Aziki. Lares' intends to play outside somewhere where others can see, hopefully piquing other covenfolks' interest. He will then try to invite others to play, as well.
Meanwhile, back at Al Kufra, Argentius can occasionally be seen taking brief walks (15 minutes out) into the mountains or desert near the covenant. Anyone observing him would see him occasionally stretch forth his dark, leathery hand toward a plant or animal. Subsequent observation of the plant or animal would show that it has died from lack of moisture.
