The Room of the Doorwards
There I beheld a trio in the midst of the house at the door. Three holed maces in their hands. Swift as a hare was each of them round the other towards the door. Aprons were on them, and they had gray and speckled mantles. Liken thou that, O Fer rogain!
Easily done: Three doorwardens of Taras King are those, namely Echur (Key) and Tochur and Tecmang, three sons of Ersa (Doorpost) and Comla (Valve). Thrice their number will fall by them, and they will share a mans triumph among them. They will chance to escape though wounded.
