Silmain, disheartened by the failures of the wars and facing growing discontent at home, calls a great council of all the Houses, to bring the Nimbus Illuminas together and open a way for the Elifaen to depart the world. Cupeldain is against this and pleads for continued war to reclaim the desert lands for the Elifaen, and he openly desires the utter destruction of the Dragonkind. Others, though uninterested in the wars against the Dragonkind, but having no desire to leave the earth or to abandon their rivers and forests, also oppose Silmain's plan. The debate stretches over a period of twelve years, and slowly Silmain loses his case for departure.
