About this creation
Music for this chapter:
The citizens all went to the armory.
As everyone was preparing themselves, two riders approached Ache.
Scout: Sir, we've found the Beast. It's roaming the the walls of the Old Kingdom.
Ache: Very good. We are almost ready. Perhaps you can accompany us. We could use the help.
You hear that? We've found it. Prepare to move out.
They came to a small ruined building on the edge of the wall.
The warriors and citizens took positions in the building and waited for the Beast.
Later that day, it found them.
The men charged.
Ache ran around the battle with a plan in his mind.
The archers and spearmen attacked the Beast, impaling it in several places.
Irrek and a gaurd soon had their own problems. Two of the skeletons in front of the ruins turned out to be Necrom scouts.
Ache lunged at the Beast from behind, peircing it's weak points.
In it's fury, the Beast started heading toward the wall, crushing men as it went.
The skeletons fought against the men feircely...
but were defeated.
Once again, Ache lunged at the Beast with his blades. The other men followed his example.
The Beast began to fall to the ground.
As it did, Tailen noticed a glowing red spot under it's chest armor, and fired.
It was killed instantly.
Ache: Excellent aim. Where did you learn to shoot like that?
Tailen: My father. He wanted me to hold my own in hard times. He passed away when I was a small girl.
Ache: I'm sorry to hear that. Well, the mission was a success, but at a cost. We need to get back to the city and prepare for the coming battles.
