Band of the Red Hand


Though some members of the Band of the Red Hand are accompanying Mat, who is presently with Valan Luca's circus, the rest of the Band is in Murandy with King Roedran to help him consolidate the kingdom. Luckily, Mat is headed right for Lugard, the capital of Murandy, so he should be catching up with his army soon.
