Usage examples of "yamun".

Yamun strode directly up to Chanar, unflinching in the steady gaze of the general.

Leaning on the pommel of his saddle, Yamun turned to General Chanar beside him.

Yamun stopped in midswallow, looking sharply at Koja over the top of the ladle.

Yamun suddenly sat straight and raised his hand to the signalmen beside him.

Yamun didn't wait to see his orders executed, but wheeled his horse about and set to the business of arraying his ten thousand.

It belonged to Jochibi, the grisled veteran whom Yamun had assigned to him as second-in-command.

Abruptly, Yamun dismissed the khans and the servants, sending them out into the downpour.

The khans at the fire glanced up at the night sky when Yamun mentioned the god's name, as if expecting some kind of divine response.

Chanar faced the other khans at the fire, directing his questions to them, not Yamun or the priest.

Yamun and the khans came out of the yurt shortly after the fight started, but no one seemed very interested in stopping the conflict.
