Road to Northheim

  • As he had said, Ambassador Dagger and Raelene left the Norden capital for Lunorth. The road chosen was the Road to Northheim. It would lead into Lunorth’s most northern region and with luck to Protector Viktor Kettle. Dagger worse his blue tunic and was armed and armored as if marching off to war save for his head where he wore no helmet. As prepared as he was, the Ambassador’s composure was juvial and well tempered.


    The two sat atop horses rented from a stable back in Palo Trutz. In the past Dagger had walked everywhere but these days the old soldier has had to keep more of a time plan with his current line of employment. Gone were the days of casual travel and in were the days of appointments and meetings


    When Dagger and Rae crossed the border into Lunorth, Dagger opened the letter he found when had woken up that morning.

  • "Well I know where Nieles is." Dagger folds up the letter and places it into his leather scroll case. "You have never met Viktor have you? Your sister met him during the Summer Campaign. You know, the war you said she had no business in taking part of." Dagger snickers in mild amusement.

  • She doesn't look at him, "She has no business in taking part in it... what recklessness she decides to put herself into is where my business ends as long as Sapphire Isle doesn't get dragged into it," Raelene lowers her head giving her eyes a rest and blinking a few times, "She said she taught his wife at their wedding reception how to use her fan because she had never used one before."


    She rubs her eyes a little, "After that, she didn't say much about the matter. Only that she got a glimpse into the thing that frightened her the most."

  • The road would be well traveled as tracks would be seen everywhere. Everything from tracks of footsteps, to livestock to wagons. In the distance the road would go further in quite a bit and seemingly continue behind a hill. Suddenly dust would be seen rising behind the hill and a sound of multiple hooves could be heard in the distance.


    After a few moments one could see six horses along with their riders ride towards the two. The cavalrymen would be dressed in black and yellow.

  • The riders would continue their way until one of the front riders would raise up a flat palm signaling the others to stop before Rae and Dagger. The riders would be wearing black and yellow tabards with a badge of Lunorths flag sewn on them. Underneath they'd wear chain mail and they'd be armed with swords having shields mounted on the side of the horse ready to be taken into use. The front rider would move a bit forward from the other riders raising a hand to his chest formed as a fist.

    "Greetings, travelers. What is your business here." The rider would address Dagger looking him over assessing his level of threat.

  • The rider would take a moment to look Dagger over once more listening to his words. The rider would look back to the other soldiers before looking back to Dagger. "Alright, please come with us. We will take you to the Lord Protector." The rider would turn around his horse and gesture for Dagger, Rae and the other soldiers to follow him before kicking his horse into gallop.

    After an hour or so of riding a round wall could be seen surrounding a city. Outside of the walls there would be tilled fields. As they'd approach the entrance to the City the front rider would saute the guards before being let inside. As they'd ride into the city they'd notice carvings and furnishing resembling dragons adorning many of the wooden homes. The rider would turn towards Dagger. "It won't be long now. The Lord Protector should be at his residence in the Upper class section or at the Head Quarters of the Dragon Legion."

  • The rider would smirk upon the question before giving the ambassador a nod. "Yes, sure. Depends on what sort of inn you're looking for. Something more high end or? The most famous tavern in the city is the Kettle inn, The Running Cauldron."

    The soldier would then proceed to give him the directions to a couple of inns including The Running Cauldron before bowing his head towards the ambassador respectfully. "I'll infrom the Lord Protector, that you've arrived. Farewell."
