… This was now becoming like a game of chess, with move followed by countermove. He wondered whether the hostile forces had any hidden technology of their own, and where it might have come from. So far, fortunately, they had not displayed any sign of this. He hoped that it would remain so. Cautiously, he was becoming optimistic …

A game of chess? Hang on, thought Duncan to himself! Without warning, the spark of a thought flashed through his mind. Mac na hOíche had said that the Kings of Illusion could not be defeated by sword or by any man or woman on two legs, or with two arms or two eyes. Not with axe, nor with sword nor lance or arrow – the old druid’s riddle had been whirling around in Duncan’s mind all the time, despite his efforts to suppress it. Now, chessmen have no legs, as such, nor do all of them have arms. But what about two eyes? The king, the queen, the knights … no, and they also carry weapons. What does this leave? The bishops – possible he thought to himself, but then again the rooks and the pawns … the rooks and the pawns … they certainly “fit” part of the riddle. Perhaps Mac na hOíche had left Duncan a clue … he knew, however, that there must be something to this, a lot more to this.
