|alan and Rauthgar were playing again one day, when a slender woman walked out of the forest. The woman had an odd contraption in her hand, and had it pointed right at Rauthgar. Galan did not understand, but when Galan heard a twanging sound, and saw something fly at Rauthgar, Galan remembered the sword that cut Rauthgar and made it bleed. Galan jumped in front of Rauthgar, and the arrow bounced harmlessly off Galan's chest.||'I can
hardly be to blame, if I may say so. There is so little
game in these woods! Do you think maybe you can make some
more animals, Galan?' the woman said.
alan smiled happily, and picking up some mud, blew on it. Galan enjoyed making mud-beings, and everyone was always happy when Galan did so. Galan finally made a great number of mud-beings, all sorts of shapes and sizes, and let them run all over the world. Some ran into the forest, some into the water, some into the plains, and some into the tundra.
