It seems this message is not lost on the shav surrounding Southport. Slowly they gather. Slowly, an army assembles outside Southport. They make no move to attack, simply showing up, assembling in ranks. And assembling. And assembling. And assembling. And then come the women, the children - entire villages have united now to come before Southport. Until the people amassed before the city walls outnumber the people held within it. And now a flag of truce goes up, and a messenger is sent in with a message.
"We have seen your recovery. Your will. Your strength. We wish to bend the knee and join the Compact."
Well. Now what?
