Tonight, I finally finished Chapter Seven. I'm not sure if what I finally decided on for the infirmary scene works. First, I played with Gorok figuring out that Sovil (still tied to the bed) was having convulsions because he was poisoned. This was cool because he got to order Markulon around when he darkened the room and told Markulon to talk quietly. I had also considered having Gorok show them a new way to treat infections (useful if Wulf wasn't allowed to use his healing trance for some reason). Finally I settled on Gorok realizing that Sovil had been infested by a parasite (one he was familiar with because it came from his region) that was causing him horrid pain. The scene probably came across as gross. Oh, well, that was hard to avoid.
Now I have to decide what's next. Maybe the next chapter should start with one of those "For the next few days, Gorok's life..." type scenes. I don't have to go over every moment of his days. (Just the ones where he's half nekkid.)
