Page 28. Fazzur is up in Tarsh at this point which is an awful long way from Baron Sanuel near WW. I suspect Baron Sanuel's position in Sartar was pretty much untenable after the Dragon Rise if he'd remained a Lunar supporter so he probably changed sides in 1625/6. That's assuming he isn't playing both sides all along - he does allow the Derensev library to remain open in spite of reports that rebels are using it (DP entry for Karstanstead).

Isn't MotW being done by Trotsky? I've not really got much more in the way of ideas than I've said already although I might get some more if I knew more about the Baron.
