The runners were tortured in turn by Marcus and Kortos. Ryder wore a mask of needles, Waver lost his unnatural hand once more, Watcher broke down in tears, and the Bull was agonized by the elves. During the interrogation, Marcus let slip the name of the nuke: the Tribomb.
During their two weeks of incarceration, however, things have changed outside. The UCAS has tracked the missile back to Tir Tairngire and declared war.

Tir na nOg has also declared war under General LeMont, but it’s a much smaller threat than the mainland enemy.
