Coltaine

"Coltaine rattles slow
across the burning land.
The wind howls through the bones
of his hate-ridden command.
Coltaine leads a chain of dogs
ever snapping at his hand.

Coltaine's fist bleeds the journey home
along rivers of red-soaked sand.
His train howls through his bones
in spiteful reprimand.
Coltaine leads a chain of dogs
ever snapping at his hand.
"


―A marching song of the Bonehunters, "
Deadhouse Gates" / Steven Erickson


Coltaine's march is one of the very best military campaign I've ever read. :omg: :jawdrop: :salute:

Yep that's Coltain! If was gonna hire someone to lead a small disciplined army through a desert, with violent tribal horsemen at my heels, ascendants and un-dead folks running around, guarding a trail of refugees and surrounded by rebelious cities with blood thirsty vengeful citizens - it'd be this guy! - or Anomander Rake . ] - Actually, yea...Rake . ]

Yea, Rake is definitely better choice in this matter. :D
But, if Son of Darkness is not around, you gotta call the crazy Wickans.
Joke on the side, Coltaine and his army was totally amazing. ;)

Absolutely! Reminds me of The Long March: Xenophon and the Ten Thousand:  You get tired just reading the darn thing, almost want to skip a few pages so the marathon can be over the sooner!

Haven't read that, but I understand what you want to say. ;)
"Deadhouse Gates" was a long, dirty, bloody, miserable and martyred
book all the way...though I've enjoy that ride, must admit. :D

:beer: :ahoy: Kad uhvatiš vremena, iskreno ti preporučujem da probaš Eriksona i "Malašku knjigu palih". Stepen (i po koji više) iznad Martina. Bar po mom mišljenju. ;)
