    Eric, Commander of the Trinsic Ward, raised his arms towards the ceiling of the armory and stretched the lethargy from his muscles. He had been sitting in contemplation of the news given to him by wardens Maki and Galathan earlier that morning. The governor of Trinsic had been arrested. Their sworn duty to protect him had been over-ruled by the, almost crazed words of the King.

    The governor had specified they should not defy the orders of the crown.

    However the oaths taken by every soldier under his command, to protect the governor, transcended these things, if only in the minds of his men.

    It was a tricky situation, and he had come to his decision.

    "Shinigami!" he called to the warden stationed outside the door.

    "Sir?" A man stepped into the room, he stood with a relaxed tilt and wore a mischievous grin.

    "Have the second battalion gear up and assemble at the west gate by night fall. We ride for Castle Blackthorn at dawn."

    "A sneak attack...Sir?" Shinigami's grin expanded with delight.

    "A talk, warden. I am forced to turn my hand to diplomacy."

    Shinigami stood looking at his commander for a moment. "Why am I not overcome with relief?"

    Eric sighed. "Go about your orders warden."

    "Yes Sir."

    After a while Eric went to the sandstone window of his office and surveyed the troops moving in the grounds below. Just a mere six months ago these fields were all but empty. Now they overflowed with soldiers, all trained and equipped by the finest masters in the land. An army raised for the defense of Sosaria.

    Why must foolish politicians insist on testing its loyalties so?

    Do they think this all a game?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commander of the Trinsic Ward is on route to Blackthorn Castle and seeks an audience with either the King or a representative with the authority to speak on the matter of Governor Lew's imprisonment. He and his troops come in peace, and wish to speak to ensure continued alliance between the lands capital, and the stronghold of Trinsic.

    He will arrive on the morning of the 26th and will wait in the city for a response from the crown for four days.

    To : Sir Eric, Commander of the Trinsic Ward

    From : The Desk Of Queen Arya, Knight Captain- Knights of the Crux Ansata, Prime Minister of Jhelom

    Dated: 25th November the year of our Lord twenty thirteen

    Re: Incarceration of Lord Lew, Governor of Trinsic

    Sir Eric,

    There is word all around the Jhelom fitting pits that several of your Trinsic Wardsmen are practicing as if going to battle.
    Hear say has it your about to march on Castle Blackthorne.

    If I understand this correctly your meaning to use diplomacy. I am a bit confused why you would need a battalion if your plan is to ask an audience of the King?

    Sometimes a simpler method shows more Grace,Honor and Dignity.

    I have to say as one of the Knights that escorted Lord Lew to his cell, we spoke about this situation and Lord Lew would not understand a show of Military action even if its just a march in his honor. Accidents can happen, especially when you have that many armed soldiers in close quarters.

    I am surprised how little faith the masses have in our King. Its not only Trinsics citizenry's reaction, But several other cities have reacted in a most undignified fashion. One other Governor out right resigned from his station.

    I caution you as a member of the Crux Royal Guard, as a Citizen of Britannia proceed carefully in this matter. You are putting all of your peoples in harms way, by either showing a mass of force or by discarding your stations.

    You havent given much thought in this matter, The King actually knows what hes doing. There is a lesson he is teaching all of us here, and how you handle this could be your judgement in future endeavors.

    Please if nothing else, discuss this with Lord Lew, he is being treated very well in Yew, if not using this as a bit of a respite from the daily demands of him.

    Take Care Sir

    Queen Arya

    The King is an evil villain who supports a mass murderer and imprisons his loyal followers. That is whom you give your loyalty to Arya.

    As a follower of the Virtues, I cannot support such a demon in man's clothing. War it shall be. Falling Waters Fortress stands with Trinsic and against the Murderer Solus and the King. It seems even the King is susceptible to the bribes of Solus.

    Down with Solus! Down with Blackthorn!

    The Country is already divided by the actions of the Traitors Solus and Blackthorn. Blackthorn may be King, but he is still a traitor to the Virtues and the People who he represents.

    The people must stand for the Virtues - for without Virtue the Kingdom will surely fall to the Forces of Minax.

    I see our *sneers* "King" has shown his Cowardice by flooding the Castle with Guards and effectively enacting Martial Law rather than face the concerns of the People.

    I see our *sneers* "King" has shown his Falsehood by accepting the false stories of Solus and attempting to force them upon the People.

    I see our *sneers* "King" has shown his Hatred by Jailing the Beloved Governor of Trinsic against the will of the people.

    These are the actions of a follower of the Shadowlords. This King is now a Despot and as such should be deposed.

    Me thinks you act with your heart and not your head. you have left your citizens of Moonglow with out proper leadership. Maybe the King should look into your back ground some.

    My background is with the true King and not this man who has abandoned the principles by which the Kingdom and it's People live. As a Captain of the Royal Britannian Guard, I must uphold the Virtues and oppose Chaos. Blackthorn has shown his hand and it is all pro-chaos.

    Eric folded the letter from the quill of Queen Arya. He placed it back in its leather pouch, and then drew a fresh piece of parchment from satchel strapped to his mount. He took a seat at the officers pavilion and began to write. All around him the wardens were making final preparations to set forth on their journey to Britain.

    Greetings Queen Arya.

    Thank you for your concerns for our circumstance.

    I realize I am a soldier with a blunt and tactical mind, but I am afraid you will have to indulge my decision to bring more force than would seem required.

    The last envoy I sent to Britain, the governor's security detail, was small as you have suggested this one should be. I did not expect our ancient allies to show them anything but hospitality during their visit. I was wrong, and it has cost our city one of its most important leaders. I would be twice the fool to allow it to happen a second time. So I hope you understand my decision to send a force that is at least capable of extracting myself and other officials should the King attempt to detain us.

    Our mission in Britain is to peacefully negotiate the release of Governor Lew, and is of the highest prior-

    "Good morning, Commander" said Lew as he strolled passed the tent. He did not stop to offer more and continued on into the city.

    "Err..." said Eric as he watched him walk away. "Good morning."

    A figure slunk up beside the Ward Commander as he sat staring blankly at the governors back disappearing into streets beyond the gate.

    "So, does this mean we won't be storming any castles today, Sir?" said Shinigami.

    Eric replaced the quill in the dark ink pot. "Have you ever seen the traveling entertainers known as the 'Monty Python Troop'?" asked Eric.

    "No Sir," said Shinigami. "Are they playing in Britain?"

    "It appears they were," said Eric. "And we have missed the show!"


    On to Britain...a-lot?
