A large group of refugees come to An'jhali to request the formation of a militia and to gather clay. Shiir meets them instead and tells them that the she has heard them about the militia the first time and the matters concerning the clan are already being dealt with by Katralya. A few of the refugees meet with An'jhali in person, including Shiir, Ro'sij, and Ka'hab. The inform her of the two refugees that Quel had found and that people are growing restless. After a moment of thought An'jhali orders Ka'hab and Shiir to gather everyone for a clan council.
An'jhali puts the call out for a Crafter, as the clan now has the resources for such a position (namely the clay). It is announced that the day will be a special event and that the Ranked are invited to the council but will be unable to work.
A set of forging tools is constructed using the last of the workable metal scraps. Some metal scraps still remain but they need to be melted down and reforged in order to be useful, requiring a more advanced forge.
Ilrae is recruited as a nurse. The rest of the day is spent on instructing her on basic medical knowledge.
The scouts manage find the rest of the refugees who fled, but only four stop to listen to him. The others run away and are lost to the clan forever.
