    Captain Cameron put down the scroll and rubbed his eyes wearily. He had just taken over as Commander of the Kings Guard after the retirement of Amonos. The man had retired with honors and Cameron had some big shoes to fill. He hadn't even met his guard yet!
    Shaking his head he picked up the scroll and read it again. "I don't think this area has seen anything bigger than a mongbat in years..." he thought. Yet this report sounded serious. "River Monsters?" he asked aloud to no one. He looked around his new office and wondered what could cause such a thing. It dawned on him that his niece actually fished in that area. He needed to send word home that the area was dangerous. In fact he needed to warn everyone...
    "Guard!" he shouted.
    In rushed the door guard, nervously saluting quickly and wondering how the new commander was going to treat his subordinates. "Yes sir!" said the guard making sure to make eye contact with his commander.
    "I need to quarantine this area," he said, scratching some numbers onto a scrap of parchment. "Make sure you warn our people to stay clear, in fact, make sure the town criers in our cities are informed I don't need any civilian deaths on our hands."
    The guard nodded and took the parchment.
    Captain Cameron looked at him before letting go of the paper, "And call the guard. I think we are going to need all hands for this one."
    "Yes sir Captain" the guard replied, running out of the room.
    Cameron leaned back onto his desk. "It could be disastrous if this isn't done right." he thought, "I will need support from a guard I have not yet met. Hopefully I will earn their respect through example."
