A tale of Aihrde.
The landless knight, Eurich Gunshoff, had no master, but served those in need, sometimes for money, but mostly for the honor of it. He went hungry often, slept in the wilds, endured the rain and snow, the heat and wind. He fought creatures, great and small. It was a hard life. Or so he thought, until he passed beneath the eaves of the Darkenfold Forest.
In "The Gonfod" Eurich breaks with several men and learns of Ornduhl's purpose and Aihrde's ending.
