Print A: The Hunt

Hunting for deer on the Tibetan Plateau, Gwern and his cousin Barl are spotted by men who have penetrated the Veil that should have kept them out of the Mharos's lands. The men want to capture two 'Yeti'.  


Print B: Gwern, Barl and Uncle Ewan

The three Mharos inspect men's devices, and realise they use a kind of magic that the Mharos cannot control. The danger posed by humans looms. But the Council of Elders decide that Gwern and Barl brought the men closer, and punish them.
