Winterís Claw territory
The farther we travel into Sejuaniís lands, the colder the Freljord grows. Iíd cover my tracks if the falling snow didnít do it for me. I know we arenít welcome here.
Near the border we passed the burnt remains of an Avarosan village. Hundreds of hoof prints led in all directions. Did the tribesmen who died here choose to remain loyal to Ashe in the face of the Winterís Claw? Is this the ruin Sejuani brings upon her opponents?
What I canít explain is the second Avarosan village we discovered. It was deserted without a single sign of battle or struggle, although the Avarosan banners still hanging from their huts had been shredded. Did these people flee?
Val spotted a Winterís Claw warband nearby. Without his eyes, I might be dead. We ducked out of their path and they passed without spotting us. Then we followed them to Sejuaniís camp.
Several warbands joined the first, each bearing the spoils of conquest: weapons, food, and to my surprise, recruits. I realized then that the people of the second Avarosan village hadnít fled, but had instead joined the Winterís Claw willingly. The most zealous of Asheís people had described the Winterís Claw as a starving, ill-supplied band of raiders, but at dusk the camp burst into celebration with plenty of food and drink (especially drink).
I only caught sight of Sejuani herself for a moment. Atop her massive war beast, she was a fearsome sight, but even she joined her men in celebration. Their songs celebrated her name.
It appears Sejuani is more than a destroyer. She too seeks unity between the tribes of Freljord and her tribe grows with those who choose to join her.
This isnít what I expected. Val and I will head east and seek the people loyal to the Avarosan there. If Sejuani recruits as easily as she destroys, the Freljord under the control of the Winterís Claw would certainly be a threat to Demacia. Is Asheís tribe at risk?
