Voltra’ag stared blankly at the shambles his life had become.
His kingdoms had been flooded by months of rain and, adding insult to injury, the fortress he’d thought impenetrable, and his unstoppable superweapon within, were rubble before him. Behind his iron mask, he wept.

2) Speak of your schemes to no-one unless you’re absolutely certain they’ll join you.
3) A man with a weather-control satellite is no man to be trifled with.
