Summary: Those who cannot learn from the past are condemned to repeat it (Jorge Santayana)

They poured over the map. Amrothos had memorized all the names by the time he was nine, in perfect haradric and three other dialects.

His father had brought them to these negotiations since childhood and, if he had learned one thing from watching haradrim, it was that those hallmarks his people clung to meant nothing to them if the water dried out. They would leave without a second thought while his people stood there, parceling the land they would get in exchange-- for what?

So haradrim hated them.

"We'll have to do things differently this time, boys..." he said, grimacing.
