Black Company Wiki

Tember was a city or town in the southern continent besieged by the Black Company many years before Croaker became the Annalist. Both One-Eye and Goblin participated in the siege. Goblin convinced the then-Captain that he could tunnel under the walls because the earth was soft, allowing the Company to sneak into the city. However, the tunnel caved in prematurely, collapsing Tember's wall above the miners. One-Eye and the rest charged in and took the city. Five days later, the miners, including Goblin, were rescued by One-Eye, although the Captain had assumed they were dead. However, Goblin claims that the only reason the tunnel collapsed was because One-Eye was playing one of his pranks on him. Since this event had not been written into the contemporary Annals by either Kanwas Scar or Miller Ladora, Sleepy (who was otherwise well-versed in Company history) had not heard of it until it was disclosed by One-Eye.[1]
