"I've taken part in all sorts of jobs over the years.  I'm the sort of man that justifies any means necessary to achieve a goal, and I am certainly capable of using guile to benefit from it", Gulston replied in a confident voice.  "Do you have something in mind regarding that?"

- When we applied to lend a hand to this measly campaign, we had stated that we excel at stealth operations, enhanced esspecially with shadowmancy.- Zayl said. He paused to take a sip from his goblet. - So we believe that the commander will be sending us to wreck havoc behind enemy lines. I do not believe it'll be as dangerous as delving into a Blackstone Fortress, but if you're tagging along, we need to know your abilities none the less.

The six desperados were riding on the horses to the training camp to Bazentown. On their two-hour ride, they stopped at the stables to have a short pause and even encountered a supply caravan.

"Can we stop for a bit? This horse-riding made me hungry."
"All right, but it better be quick." the captain wished for no more delays.
Amanda approached the caravan: "I'd like to buy something to eat. What do you have?"
"T'is mostly clothes, weaponry or fruit. I got some apples, though."
"I'd like to have two apples, please. Will two coins be enough?"
"Yus." the caravan rider took the coins and put it in his dirty pants, then gave two red apples to Amanda. Schwarz approached Amanda and gave her a tired look.
"You want some? Here then, Schwarz." Amanda gave an apple to Schwarz, who ate it in a few seconds, then started snuggling his head to Amanda.
"All right, all right, let me eat my apple." However, Schwarz lowered his head towards Amanda's chest and continued snuggling.
"Stop it, you. This is now becoming weird." Amanda, quite annoyed by the horse, went on the saddle and rode away with the troops, eating the apple on the way.

As the morning sun rose up, the group arrived to Bazentown. The captain untied Sylvia, who was tied up for the whole trip, since they thought Sylvia would simply ride away from the group. The captain approached the training master.

"So, these are the people that are supposed to go under the training? I've seen worse." The captain nodded and gave a signal for everyone to descend down from the saddles.
Amanda was having trouble this time coming do. "Oh, let me help you." Sylvia pushed Amanda away from the horse, causing her to fall down. Amanda screamed in pain, while the captain came, confused and angered at Sylvia.
"Miss Sylvia, this is a squad and I expect from every one of you to show teamwork. Go in the training camp, where you will be punished."
Sylvia ignored the captain and spat on Amanda: "This is for tying me up, you b**ch." Sylvia walked away, while the captain helped Amanda stand up. However, she screamed in pain.
"Ugh, I think I twisted my ankle. Damn Sylvia, tying you up was for your *own* good!" Amanda started cursing.

"What a shame." the captain was troubled and helped Amanda walk towards the medic. There, the medical officer bandaged Amanda's leg and gave her some herbs, promising the leg would recover in one day. Since she couldn't train with her injured leg, Amanda watched how her group was training in swordsmanship, stealth, archery and, of course, magic.

Amanda sighed, but promised to teach Sylvia a lesson she will never EVER forget. Since there was nothing much to do for Amanda but to wait, she decided to go to sleep she needed.

A guard at the gate of Fort Geham leaned on the wall and rolled a cigarette. It was a long day, with a lot of traffic coming in, but it was finally coming to an end. There was no caravan in sight on the road, which means he had at least a couple of minutes to rest. Damn this war. It gave honest soldiers too much work. The next shift better not be late again or there will be hell to pay tomorrow.

Suddenly, someone tugged at his pants. He looked down and saw a little girl in a worn out dress.

"What are you doing here, girl? This is not a place for little  children."

"I'm not a little child! I'm 11. That's a two digit number, you know? Just like you."

The guard sighed.

"How did you get in here, girl?"

"Oh, it was easy! I slept in one of the carts in the hay. When I woke up, I was in here. And then the owner of the cart found me and chased me away. He was kinda mean, but that's ok. Except I didn't have time to eat and I'm hungry now. Do you have some food?"

The guard looked her over. There was something strange about the girl, but he couldn't put his finger on what it was. Maybe she was just too cheerful and talkative for a little girl on her own in a military base during wartime.

"I don't have any food, now buzz off, kid."

"But I'm huuuungry... I really am... Don't you have anything? I really really want to eat."

"I said get off me!"

The guard pushed the clinging girl away.

"You have to know where I can get something. Please? Pleasepleasepleasepleasepleeeeeaaaase?"

"Look just... go to the inn or something. That's where I get food when they're not giving enough at the mess hall. Just leave me alone already!"

"Ok! Thanks, mister!" The girl smiled, waved and hopped away.

The thing is, thought the guard as he a drag from his roll, even if I tell someone, no one would believe me. I know I wouldn't.

----------------------------------------


Inisde Fort Geham a woman carried a basket full with done laundry back to the barracks. It was a long day, but once she finally delivers the clean uniforms she can get some rest.
Suddenly, someone tugged at her dress.

"Hello, Miss. Where is the inn?.."

The way to fort Geham was rough, bumpy and uncomfortable but they managed to get there in good time, all things considered. Walking across the inner courtyard towards the keep itself. They were stopped at the gate by a couple of guards demanding reason for entry and documentation.

"This is Narsila Maron Hetania Veronica Victoalia, forst of her name and she is here on royal business. Captain Audris has sent with her this letter and seal to grant her access and an audience with Grand General Athard Gerey" Amelia answered for them both while Maron remained motionless, awaiting the response. One of the guards took the letter to inspect the seal.
"Yes, this is from Audris all right. If you wish i can show you to someone who might help you further"
"I guess that will do for now"
"Very well, ma'm. Follow me." Walking through the door, gesturing for Maron and Amelia to follow.

The guard led them through halls and stair, up several floors until he opened a door to a small armoury with a corporal overseeing a bunch of newly incoming supplies mostly consisting of ammunition and weapons.
"Ma'm, We have a visitor who requests meeting with the general. She has the seal of Connin"
 Checking of a few items of her list, the corporal looked up at the small gathering. "Well, well. It's not often we get one so obviously noble up here. -You are dismissed soldier- As I'm certain you've been informed of the general is very busy at the moment and will not be available until tomorrow. I regret to inform you we do not have a place for you to stay here at the keep either but would be happy to get you a room at an inn. But enough about pleasantries. I'll get you a quick time tomorrow if you just follow me. Don't worry, it's not far" As the corporal led them outside, Maron gave a small sign to Amelia without their new companion noticing and they followed her to the next door where their guide sat down at a desk and prepared some parchment and a quill.
"Name"
"Lady Paramón"
"'Lady Paramón...' would an hour after dawn be good for you?"
"Yes, that will suffice"
"Excellent! Here, take this-" Maron was handed a small coin-like object which she handed to Amelia "-and Come back tomorrow. Show that and give your name and there should be no trouble. It will also give you a room and a meal at any of the inns in the fort. Any inquires?"
"Yes, do the men find general Gerey to be a competent and inspiring leader? is there any dissent?"
This caused the corporal to pause for a moment. "Why would you want to know that?"
"By order of the King I am investigating whether the efforts demand a new general or if Gerey is doing a sufficient job. Needless to say, this stays between us, understood?" as she said the last bit, the room suddenly grew dark and Maron leaned in to face the corporal eye to eye.
"U-understood Ma'm. Uhm, I don't think there is much to report. He does the job he's been given and makes sure everyone here does theirs. is that enough?"
"Yes dear, that will suffice Thank you. We can find our own way out now"

The way back out the keep was mostly uneventful with soldiers and some workers milling here and there minding their own business. Once outside however, there was a somewhat strange sight. A child pestering some woman carrying laundry but not just any child. A Haaz child seemingly all alone. This could be worth investigating. And so, maron approached the two of them.
"Miss, that's a Haaz! Are you sure you want to approach?" Amelia whispered, eyes wide and looking at the child. She was silenced by a hand-wave.
"Excuse me but I couldn't help overhearing your conversation. Are you lost young lady?"

Fort Geham, east Svad region, Kingdom of Karston

                                    ***


"Fire, fire!" yells a lad in front of Geham's gates, "Fire coming from Connin!"
He is shaking, sweating, breathing deeply.
A guard approaches the young man with a serious look on his face.  "What are you on about?  What fire?!" the guard inquires.
"Fire!  Smoke rising from Connin!  I rode from a nearby village to alarm you all!" he cries with his arms waving in the air.
The guard calls his captain, who arrives in a few moments.
"I heard something about a fire. Report, soldier!" the captain yells.
"Sir, this man claims that there's a fire coming from Connin, sir!" the soldier says.
"This fire, boy", the captain turns towards the lad, "when did you notice it?"
"This afternoon, first the smoke, then the fire in the distance!"
"I must dispatch a team to survey the damage", he says and goes inside the fort.

Others start arriving at the gates - peasants, soldiers, mercenaries, all commenting on the fire.

Then, from behind all of them, a woman covered in ash and dust limps to the guard and looks him in the face.  Her eyes are blank, her expression is of shock.
"They came", she begins in a voice barely audible, "Lots of them...  They just appeared out of nowhere and burned down the whole town.  No one got out, except for me."
She falls to the ground, but the guard quickly lifts her up.  Her eyes closed as she collapsed and she's not breathing anymore.

The guard rushes into the fort and to the keep with the woman's body still in his arms.  
"An attack!  Connin's been struck by the enemy!" he yells through the halls.  The other guards try to stop him, but he keeps going.  
Finally he reaches the Grand General's chamber and enters.  Inside, the Grand General was standing in front of his desk, with two other high-ranking officers.  
Athard Gerey is a tall and bulky man in his early fifties, with long, black hair and a full beard, he has an intimidating look on him.  
"What does this disturbance mean?!" the Grand General speaks with a deep and strong voice.
The guard's legs give up, and he falls to his knees.  "Connin has been burned by the enemy, this woman was the only survivor", the guard manages to answer before losing consciousness.  

Guards rush into the room to find both the guard and the woman lying on the marble floor.  A moment of silence ensues.

"Prepare the soldiers", Athard Gerey says to one of the officers, "Dispatch at least two divisions to every coastal town.  Send word to the capital that we request two regiments of three thousand men each."
"Lord Gerey, we would be leaving the capital with very few men then!" the officer objects.
"This war will be led on Svad's soil, and the sooner we end it, the sooner we can all go home.  Lord Ithwil, I expect you to carry out my orders to the letter."
"Yes... Grand General."
With that, the officer exits the room.

"Get those two out of the room", Gerey says and goes into his private chambers.


The people outside are already talking about the incident at the gate and Connin's supposed fall.  Everyone is puzzled.  How could the Mebruans mount an offensive so soon?

"No, Miss! I am here and food is in the inn and now I know that the inn is there." She said quickly and cheerfully, pointing in the direction of the closest inn, "and now I am going to go there and eat. So, no, I am not lost."

The girl smiles and turns to go.

Amanda is walking on a flowery field and finds a charming man, her love interest. She runs to hug him, but the man says: "Danger is coming." The man disappears in thin air and Amanda is surrounded by vicious beasts. One of them strikes and starts ripping Amanda, as the world turns dark.

"Argh!" Amanda wakes up, shivering and shaking, her sweat pouring from her body. She knew this was no simple dream, but quite possibly a prophetic one. Amanda stands up and removes her bandage; she doesn't feel much pain from her leg and ignores it. She also has a look at her bracelet, which has a faint glow and has a mark of a butterfly. 12 hours have passed since she fell asleep, since she didn't have much sleep on the boat nor in the barracks. She steps outside and sees some people taking a break at the sunset, with the horses, including Schwarz, being nearby.

"You feel better now? That's nice. Here, have a drink." the medical officer gave Amanda some orange juice. "Others have gone off for a while to train more, but they should be returning soon."
"Thanks. What were they doing when I was asleep, though?" Amanda was curious, since she wanted to train on her own.
"Usual stuff - using bows, swords and magic for practice. Now they are training in stealth; the next thing is that obstacle course."
"I might just join them, I feel better now." Amanda grinned, trying to convince the medical officer, who gave her some meal. "Here, have a sausage and some boiled eggs."
"Mmm, this tastes good." Amanda enjoyed the food and thought of the tasty meals back in Avalen. Suddenly, Schwarz started acting odd and seemed somewhat excited - too excited. Amanda was annoyed: "What's the matter with you? Can't I have a nice meal in peace?"

Halfway during dinner, Amanda's team mates returned. Besides Sylvia, all of them were glad she is back.

"Me and Aster did well during the courses. The swordsman course was mostly easy." Vladik was quite confident, as if he conquered something. Aster continued on: "Bow challenge wasn't tough either, but the magic one required a lot of concentration; you must not get distracted when casting a spell. Very tough."
"Ya, mag-gik chal-lange was dif-fif-cool-t. My cur-seas were not wor-kin'." Logan stuttered and was even sweating how much effort he had to put to say the sentence.
"What about you Sylvia-" the captain looked around and saw how she was going on a saddle.
"Damn all of you. I was hoping to find a tasty male, but you are all homosexual."

"Home-sex?" Logan was curious.

"I thought one of you would suffice and we'd escape the military. Since there is nobody enough for my desires, I am leaving."

Amanda was furious, but decided to remain calm, think about her promise. "Sylvia, there is something behind you." Sylvia started looking around and in that moment, Amanda casted a fireflare, burning her "lower back side". Sylvia started screaming and shook off the fire, leaving a large hole, revealing no clothes behind it.

"Oh. I was targeting for your hair, but the butt will do. And really, it doesn't look impressive." Amanda embarrassed Sylvia, who sat on her saddle. Everyone laughed, but Sylvia yelled: "Stupid girl, you will PAY for this one day. Do you HEAR!?"

Sylvia rode off, while everyone continued laughing.

"Heh, that was fun. She deserves to run off, though. Anyway, back to the training!" the captain tried to motivate the squad, but everyone was disappointed, including Amanda, about the obstacle course they had to cross.

Lucy was trying to eat when the inn began to come alive with the recent the news. The floor boards creaked as the patrons scurried about to whisper and mutter with each other.

"Did you hear what happened."
"Who would have guessed this would happen?"
"But how?
"Completely in flames."
"Will it all be burned?"
"Burned."
"Burned."
"Burned."

"Looks like I will have to leave early now", the ginger haired man said leaning on the table next to her, breaking her out of her thoughts.
"If the Mebruans really have managed to sneak into Karston territory the war on Svad could be over in days", Lucy mused sipping her wine, "This, of course, would be devastating for my research."
"And for our life expectancy, if they are only a day from Geham."
"Feed me any information you can get on this as fast as you can, understood?"
"Naturally."

He got up and left, leaving Lucy at the table. She sipped her wine.

"Of course, if it was not the Mebruans I suppose this could be quite interesting."

The girl stops abruptly, turns around on her heels and stares intently at Narsila.

"You want to go with me?... YAY!!!" She jumps high in the air as she screams and then starts jumping around Narsila and singing. "We're gonna go to the i-inn, we're gonna to the i-inn. Or we're going to have so much fun! Ooh, ooh, ooh, we can talk about dresses! I like yours. It looks great! Yay, friends!"

"Delightful..." She whispered to herself. But this was too strange to pass up. A Haaz child all alone and in a very fancy (If dirty) dress was bound to get her something and besides, she was oozing of magic. Whoever had her might get an ace up her sleeve. But until then she would just have to stand the girl. Amelia was noticeably taken aback by the proceedings, seemingly fighting urges to either scream, holler or both but loyally following.
"Tell me, do you have a name girl?" Hetania asked as they reached the Inn.

"Phew! That was some intense training." Amanda poured some water on her face, having trained for four hours to catch up with the others.
"The time you spend in peace is to be used in training to gain experience for the war." the captain pointed out, who was also exhausted by this long day.
Amanda looked in the distance and noticed lights in Bazentown. "So, what's the story with this place?"
"I've been to Bazentown before. It's a quiet community. They usually produce a lot of food for the military. Right now, they must be hunting for spirits by using lanterns, to bless their crops. Or so I've been told."

Just as Amanda was to relax, a messenger arrives, who was very exhausted and had a grim face.

"Sir, I bear grave news." the messenger unfolded the scroll and showed it to the captain.
"What? Is that even possible?" the captain was in shock, but the messenger confirmed the news. The captain turned to the soldiers: "Today, the city from where we came from, Connin, has been brutally attacked. The attackers are unknown, but some suspect to be Mebruans. The whole city is in ruins and is left to burn."

Everyone started whispering, worrying whoever was that attacked the city must be formidable and merciless. Amanda was terrified to know the place she was in today was ransacked to the ground. She feared it was a much darker threat, but wonders what could be accomplished by attacking such a city. She also realizes the entire city was reinforced with soldiers and every single one died in the attack. Amanda started question if the army does have enough manpower to counterattack.

Aster was agitated, but started yelling. "That's terrible! I will avenge every man, woman and child, who died there. That, I swear on Avalaya's name!"
"At ease, soldier. What are the orders from the general?" the training master asked.
"It would seem we are to go to Fort Geham to receive our next orders. Riding would take too much time, but I have this!" the captain shows a blue stone.
"What is dat shiny stuff?" Logan was curious, with his eyes sparkling.
"That is a teleporting stone. It will allow us to go to Fort Geham in a moment. It requires the holder to imagine the place they visited to form a portal. The stones are incredibly rare, however, even more than diamonds. Thus, they are to be used in extreme cases, such as this one. We could even face the enemy while riding to the fort."

The captain had everyone mount on the horses and formed a line. The captain took a moment and threw the stone to the ground, opening a golden portal. Everyone rode through the portal, including Amanda and Schwarz, who found themselves in front of Fort Geham.

"I am Countess Narsila Maron Hetania Veronica Victoalia. If that is too much trouble I suppose you may go with 'Lady'. Or perhaps Countess. Now, I ask that you remain calm in here and stay close to either me or Amelia here-" Veronica gestured to Amelia without taking her eyes of the little girl. Amelia in turn jumped at the suggestion and gave her employer an angry look which was promptly ignored "-and don't bring too much attention to yourself, understand? Once we have a room it shouldn't be long before food arrives"

The weekly silent meditation passed quickly, Titus had found the sorrounding mountains to be particularly calm but a calm nonetheless different from the one in the caves of Southern Hestinelle, there was a particular energy sorrounding that place, something matured from the cold of that place, or maybe from the battles fought near there, or the hard work of the denizens.
He filled the day with prayers, and for the first time in years he felt like they were emboldened, even to the point of assuming ethereal forms, he felt no cold, even though there were large mounds of snow, he felt no hunger nor thirst, but only a deep connection to his beloved goddess.

At sunset he returned to fort Geham, newly regenerated and feeling stronger than usual, and with a renewed inner peace, however, once he reached the gates he saw something was off, the guards were particularly nervous, and demanded more than the badge to let  him enter, they would only let him in after commander Svartalf, the one he met during the road  passed by the gate by chance.

Quite the lucky coincidence, Titus asked Svartalf why this time the guards wouldn't let him pass, only to be met by the silence of the commander.

"Master Svartalf, your silence is an ill omen, as is the behaviour of these sentinels, what could happen to cause these men to become so wary?"
"Avalaya hasn't forsaken us, is that right father?"
"My child, Avalaya always watches us with a merciful eye, do not fear, for she may not stop evil by herself, but she lends her strength to those who fight for justice."
"Then, Connin, there was no justice there? Were there no fighters?"
"Connin? Why do you mention that quaint town?"
It dawned on him that something was aloof.
"Connin was burned to the ground with no survivors... All but a woman were killed in the fire"
The priest's face contorted in horror, then he said:
"No, Connin was riddled with unbelief, those men had renounced their greatest strength, however, in the fires of war few things can be done, and Avalaya never interferes by herself in the clashes of men. While tragic, we mustn't forget our duty, remember, great evils allow the just to amend the errors of our days." He stopped for a moment, then continued: "Now is a time of mourning, can I ask you to wear a black cloak? As well as instruct your soldiers to do the same, showing humbleness in the face of tragedy will renew your purpose."
Svartalf listened in tears, then said: "Yes, father, is it still a good time to accept your offer?" The priest answered: "Of course, however, if you'll excuse me, before the end of this ominous day, I need to fulfill my duties"

After leaving the gate, Titus started asking informations on the location of the woman who survived the fire, as he felt he needed to give peace to the afflicted.
While running around the fort he thought: "How morbidly ironic, I can't even perform the last rites on their corpses, they are already burnt, and their ashes are already scattered along the ground, it seems those miscreants did the job for me..."

Wait, where is my clever punchline?

Amanda came through the portal to Fort Geham. Fear, anguish and disturbed faces of soldiers and other people spread out the negative mood. Amanda could barely hear whispers about the attack on Connin, as the wind blew to her ears. Despite her animosity with that woman, Amanda wondered what happened to Sylvia.

Since it was obvious Amanda would receive a new task, Amanda went to the blacksmith, who was working on a new weapon.

"Can you upgrade my weapon a bit, mr. blacksmith?" Amanda wanted to get ready.
"Normally I'd charge a price, but I see you are a member of the army by that badge you are wearing, so I'll do it for free." the blacksmith took the weapon and hammered it down a few times, then polished it on a grindstone. As a final detail,
"Here, it is refined. Let it serve you against the Mebruan army, who burned Connin to the ground." the blacksmith grinned and gave the weapon to Amanda.
"Er, there were no reports that the Mebruan army did it."
"Pah. I don't trust Mebruans. Their king gave away his daughter to take control of the island. Since that backfired, their army now starts burning cities to the ground. I only feel sorry for that girl for being dragged into this political crisis." the blacksmith looked down in shame.
