Rifleman Commander: “Are you sure you want to do this Herbert we still need you here.”
Herbert: “I have to anyway without a wand or staff I am useless to you as a magician there should be enough potions to help you until help arrives.”
Rifleman Commander: “Alright here take this we have enough and you’ll need it.”
Herbert: “Thank you George.”
Rifleman Commander (George): “I could stop you.”
Herbert: “But you won’t”
George walks away.
Rifleman Commander (George): Open the gates.
The doors creak open for the first time in two days.
Herbert: “Thank you boys.”
All goes silent as Herbert walks out and mounts his horse.
The horse whinnies as it is mounted for the first time in many days.
Herbert brings the horse around, “Help will be on its way soon I promise.”
Riflemen Commander, “We’ll hold the door open for you if we can Herbert.”
Herbert, “Thank you George.”
Riding with the cold night biting at him Herbert charges towards the besiegers camp.
He soon smells the scent of the camp
And shoots toward a group of the Besiegers
Seeing him they try to intercept.
Herbert shoots one of the musketeers with his crossbow.
Dropping the crossbow he grabs the man’s musket as he falls
And continues with his ride.
killing another with the axe head.
After he escaped the crowd of unprepared besiegers he faces the demos as they organize
Leaving him no escape.
So he goes over them
Escaping their grasp as them the fingers of Gias close around him
He faces knights charging him screaming for his blood
He shoots one
Breaking in another’s armor with the axe head
Herbert steals his sword.
And escapes with little harm
Only to face a line of archers a deadly threat to a man on horse.
He attempts to go around but he hears many arrows realease
He makes in and continues his run.
The horse slows
Then collapses from its wounds
Herbert says “This will have to be far enough.”
He lifts the vial
Then throws it at the ground
Far away in his small cottage sleeps an old wizard who begins to receive the message
Herbert in dream: “Ishop Ishop I need your help the castle I was at it has been attacked by Gias.”
“The castle is holding for the moment but it is under manned and surrounded.”
“It is full of good men”
“Innocents who now must fight”
“Commanded by the only surviving commander.”
Back in reality, Now surrounded by the magicians Herbert smiles
(Leader) “Why are you smiling old man”
Herbert: “Because it’s too late.”
Herbert throws his sword.
His target falls
Herbert grabs the wand And deflects a blast of magic energy
Then shoots one of his own
But quickly he is out manned
Leader, “Any last words fool.”
Herbert, “Go to….”
