The 6th segment of the Key To Time is hidden on Atrios, a planet in the middle of a devastating war, which is a bit of a distraction during key hunting. Even more troubling than the war is the fact that the leader of Atrios does not seem to want to win the war. Who ever heard of a leader insane enough to deliberately let his people be slaughtered with no plans or interest in even winning the boondoggle of a war he has put them in? Er, never mind.
