Chapter 1: An Old Friend

Fifty-five days after the quest of the Seven Swords began, fifty-five days after the day in the Year of Our Lord 1488 when the cloaked stranger came to the High King of Andomhaim’s court, Ridmark Arban led the way east along the road to the village of Argin and the Monastery of St. Paul.

He looked at his companions. They traveled through the moors east of Trojas, the rolling plain covered in tough grasses and dotted here and there with rocky tors. Steel-colored clouds hid the sky, and a dry wind blew down from the north, rustling the grasses and blowing dust from the road.

Calliande walked behind him, her green cloak and blond hair stirring in the wind. She had the worn staff of the Keeper in her right hand, and a distant expression on her face that meant she was either lost in thought or using the Sight to look for enemies. A few yards behind her came Calem and Kalussa, both of them, as usual, talking quietly together. After that Tamlin walked by himself, his face solemn, and Kyralion brought up the back, handling their train of pack scutians. The gray elf often seemed more comfortable with beasts than with humans.

Prince Krastikon Cyros walked up to Ridmark and fell in next to him.

His size came not from fat but from muscle, and even without the aid of his earth magic, he had swung his bronze war hammer hard enough to shatter skulls. Now he carried the Sword of Death at his side, his Swordborn heritage allowing him to bear the weapon without suffering the corruptive effects that had turned Taerdyn into a monster.

Another day to Argin, I think, said Krastikon.

Most likely, said Ridmark. I hope the village and the monastery are safe. With the destruction of the Bronze Dead, bold raiders might decide to try their hands in the lands near Trojas once more.

Aye, said Krastikon. Well, Zenobia and the King’s Men will organize a proper militia. Soon Trojas will have hoplites again.
