Example text

The rude order wrenched my thoughts back to the present. A soldier, resplendent in leather armor and brandishing an evil-looking pike, was angrily approaching our crude encampment. Behind him the gates stood slightly ajar, and I could see the heads of several other soldiers watching us curiously. Now that the light was improving, I could see the wall better. It wasn’t much of a wall, barely ten feet high. That figured. From what we had seen since we crossed the border, it wasn’t much of a kingdom, either.

My spirits fell along with the rain. Even with Aahz’s coaching on presentation, my magik was not this powerful or impressive. “Aahz…” I whispered urgently. Instead of responding, he waved me to silence, his eyes riveted on the pavilion. Following his gaze, I saw the general speaking urgently with the king. The king listened for a moment, then shrugged and said something to the magician. Whatever he said, the magician didn’t like it. Drawing himself up haughtily, he turned to leave, only to be called back by the king.

The king was surprisingly young, perhaps in his mid-twenties. His hair was a tumble of shoulder length curls, which combined with his slight build almost made him look effeminate. Judging from his posture, either the interviews had been going on for some time, or he had mastered the art of looking totally bored. The man on his left bent and urgently whispered something in the king’s ear and was answered by a vague nod. This man, only slightly older than the king but balding noticeably, was dressed in a tunic and cloak of drab color and conservative cut.
