Chapter 1: Magistri

Forty-three days after the quest of the Seven Swords began, forty-three days after the day in the Year of Our Lord 1488 when the cloaked stranger came to the High King of Andomhaim’s court, Calliande Arban spent the afternoon teaching her apprentice Kalussa.

The gray elf Kyralion followed, his golden eyes roving endlessly over the plains as he sought for foes. Sir Calem Whitecloak walked with him, stiff and expressionless, though from time to time he shot glances at Kalussa. Calliande and Kalussa walked next, and Sir Krastikon Cyros brought up the back, his face distant. Perhaps he was thinking of his dead father.
