Previously: The Grimalkin has been destroyed. However, some survivors managed to escape. Vixen forces found them, and are leading them to their city to form a plan.
About this creation
Music for this chapter:
The group travelled all day to the city. Once inside, Ache and Irrek began discussing the plan Ache mentioned.
Irrek: So nothing is left of your city?
Ache: Nothing but ruins. Our king is dead and more than half the city with him.
Irrek: Im sorry. And you're sure this plan will help?
Ache: It'll buy us some more time to gather a greater force to face the prince.
Irrek: Very well. I'll tell the people. Come with me.
Irrek walked up to the stand with Ache at his side.
Irek:People of Vixen! Hear my words! You may have noticed the strangers who entered the city with me.
Do not be alarmed, but they are from the Grimalkin, our former enemies.
Crowd member: What do you mean "former"?
Irrek: They are no longer our enemies. Our kingdom split because of different beliefs about the Black Book. The Grimalkin have seen the truth, and we now all face a common enemy: Arsem. He was once the prince of the Grimalkin, but fell to shadow. So, on this day, the Grand Alliance is reborn. There is no more Vixen and Grimalkin. We are all one.
Now, I need brave warriors for a dangerous mission. It is likely that some of you will die, but your deaths will not be in vain. Who among you are willing to accept this fate?
City gaurds: We will follow you to the end, my lord.
Gaurd: My mace and strength will aid you sir.
Irrek: All who are to be part of this mission, come forward.
We may be travelling for a few days, so be prepared. I must ask, is there anyone here who is highly skilled with a bow? Gaurds do not have efficient training in precision.
Tailen: I am my lord.
Irrek: Very well. You will be our sharp shooter. This mission may depend on your skill.
