File Details
Map Size: 200x200 (Small)
Difficulty: Hard

It is the year 1343 and a war has been erupting for the last year and a half between a kingdom of rich and beautiful cities and a kingdom ruled under a cruel lord.

In 1341, just before the war started, the two lords came together in a friendly meeting to form an alliance between the two kingdoms. Before this event, they were not known to each other. They sent messages to one another and then they agreed they would meet not at a city, but at an oasis. The kind and brave lord suggested this. He didn’t not like the idea of a neutral lord being in his city. He had a bad feeling about it because the other lord was neither enemy nor ally.

They met under the cool shade of a tree next to a watering hole 10 miles from the closest town. Both lords had a small party of troops. The lords stood at least three meters apart, not once taking their eyes off each other until an elegant man stepped forward and announced the names of both the lords, ‘King Agather and King Edward are brought here to pledge allegiance to each other…’ and he droned on…

King Edward, the kind and brave. King Agather, the cruel and heartless. King Edward did not know how cruel the other was. A few moments past and the elegant man was still talking, then he handed King Agather a scroll of paper and a feathered pen to sign. He finished and handed it to the kind lord. King Edward took the scroll and realised the other lord was smiling like the devil. It was unusual but everything was going good so far so he continued to sign.

Suddenly, an assassin lunged forward at King Edward! There was no time to think! He was stabbed in the shoulder before a group of spearmen hurried to save their king. The assassin was slaughtered in an instant. The two groups of soldiers fought each other and one of the spearmen yelled, ‘Sir, get out of here now! We’ll hold them off!’

King Edward grasped at his shoulder as he ran back through the rocky desert and away from the small battle. King Agather was furious. The plan did not go as well as he thought it would. He was supposed to kill King Edward and claim the kingdom as his. The cruel lord now had one more enemy; but this enemy, was like no other. King Agather made the biggest mistake of his life.

Sub Story:

Reckless Hate - Part 4
Another Tricky Siege

The siege of Rubist was a success, but not in the eyes of the winning army. The city crumbles, dead bodies lay bloodied and scattered and the army still has not found their king. Neither have they found their enemy king, which when they find him, they are not going to kill him; they are going to torture him.

Meanwhile, the other small handful of soldiers returns to Dragorsk. They are satisfied that they killed many and they plan to celebrate. They do not know if the other army has found King Edward, so they wait anxiously for their return. A few days later, the bells at the front gatehouse of Dragorsk ring throughout the city. The army has returned with the bad news. But they feel something is not right.

King Agather’s kingdom consists of two separate major cities and two small castles. King Edward’s army has only attacked one city and one small castle. That leaves only two possibilities where their lord could be. Once again, they prepare for battle. They plan to attack the second castle, another with tricks and traps. Another tricky siege.

The army leaves Dragorsk and marches off into the rocky desert. A couple exhausting days pass, then they come across a castle, the one they were looking for. The army stands out in the open, gazing upon the castle. They know this siege is going to be hard. In the distance, a few guards walk out of the front gatehouse, followed by a heavily armoured soldier. They stop immediately as they see the army. There is silence. The troops turn around and yell to the archers on the walls, then they run back into the castle and prepare to close the gatehouse. The heavily armoured soldier does not move. Who is he? Is it King Agather? Could King Edward be held prisoner here? The soldier slowly turns and walks back through the gatehouse as it closes.


This wasn't supposed to be Part 4 but it seemed to work better with the storyline. Enjoy!
