The sun is bright but even as the morning passes the air remains cold. The waste around them seems desolate, but Shade notes the fingers of life that scrabble for purchase despite the harsh conditions. The cold, stark land mirrors the emotions that fill her this morning.

As is her wont she scouts ahead, as much to keep an eye out for trouble as to familiarize herself with the land and it's inhabitants. It also grants her time alone, which is probably for the best. By the time midday rolls around, she is less volatile, feeling merely grim rather than angry. She calls a halt and breaks out some rations for lunch, taking a swallow of water and surveying the land ahead from a small rise.
