Well, darned. I was afraid of that. I was imagining that almost all the Tribes of Sartar had some people at the battle, so it's pretty easy to put losses anywhere they are needed. I was kind of hoping for something on Moraides' troops and tactics (it seems like some of his experimental magical ideas might have had a hand in the victory, although the Philosophers don't even have a Wyter according to Tarsh in Flames...)
