2 Works in Bitra Hold
As the Fourth Interval drags on with no sign of Threadfall, Bitra's ruling family seeks to turn this new era of prosperity to their advantage. With the menace of Thread seemingly behind them Benden Weyr and the Plains Wherhold are little more than obstacles on the road to power. A disgruntled Bitran Holdguard and his bronze watch-wher aren't very good at playing the hero, but with no one else available they'll have to do. They'll have to try, at least.
