Thron, Ulric, Cosimo, and the peasant ran toward the smoke. When the got to the source, they were horrified.
The mighty wall that stood for centuries had been destroyed, gaping holes in random places.
Some soldiers were chasing off a group of goblins.
Two others ran to help.
Goblins lay over the bodies of Crown soldiers, arrows sticking out of both corpses.
(This looks so gay)
Thron: What happened?
Knight: About 20 goblins rushed us. They had some weapon that fired from afar and destroyed our wall, the main line of defense. We managed to drive them back, but we thing this was just a test by the goblins. We think they will attack us in greater force soon.
Thron: But.. You're forces are weakened! How can you repel them again?
Knight: We are not sure, but we need someone to disable the secret weapon they have, and hopefully find out who their leader is.
Just then, Prince William walked through the gate, full in battle armor.
William: Knights! Today, you all fought valiantly to drive the foul plague that is the goblins away. Thank you. But we have a greater problem. My father, the king, has been captured.
