4/5 Battles end with a stone burner. I bet we get a "Curiously Ironic" Ixian selling Muad'dib his invention of a "weapon to nicely defeat your enemy with the minimum of damage, called a "Stone Burner". "Stone Burner! Its Pacificationirific!" On its field test Muad'dib drops it on the Planet Shimhiroa, and it burns through to the core EXPLODING TEH ENTIRE PLANET! OH THE P.R. NIGHTMARE! Paul feels dark because the planet was home to a special kind of rodent that Chani thought was "cute". Regardless, Stone Burners get fixed and Muad'dib drops them every time Stilgar asks to take some one's water. Like a drinking game, but with writing.
I forgot, Paul renames Shimhiroa as Harmonthep, to fill a continuity error.
I bet Norma shows up in a vision to Paul and suggests "the Golden Path"
