Off to our right today we saw elements of the army of the East. They were hard at work digging in and setting defenses for the main army which must be within Babylon, now visible to our front.
Sy brought back word from Mawuli that forces were on their way for a similar purpose in this area, and advised we skirt this development by swinging even further east.
We lost no time in complying, finding ourselves nearing the river Elijah and I had followed to the megapolis many months ago.
Thus we found it necessary to regroup and move as a single unit around the increasing number of patrols.
I suggested that we make our way down to the river.
