Amelina, town cryer of Britain
The merchant Senius was traveling from Trinsic
to Britain as he did every day, to sell his good wares to the rich citizens of
Britain. The sun was shining and it was a warm day. A truly nice day, but Senius
did not know that his life was in danger. He was walking with his packhorse
nearby when a group of Lizardmen blocked the road in front of him. In moments,
another group of Lizardmen blocked the road behind him. A trap! Senius felt he
was in real danger. He did not have time to react: the Lizardmen attacked from
all the directions before he could even wield his Quarter Staff. The scaled
warriors left Senius mortally wounded on the ground beside the road. He was
lucky. A group of hunters heard his cries and came to help.
Attacks like this were happening more and more often. The Captain of the Guard,
Asiris, was ordered to put an end to these attacks. It was first decided to send
some scouts north of Trinsic. T’was truly a surprise when the scouts came back
telling that they spotted an army of Lizardmen gathering in the swamp north of
Trinsic. They seemed to be led by a chieftain called Sysser. He was organizing
an uprising of all the Lizarmen tribes near Trinsic. The main camp of this
Lizardman army was located in the swamp south west of Trinsic. T’was there
that Sysser was realizing his diabolic plans.
The situation was clear: the Lizardmen had to be stopped and Sysser had to be
killed. T’was not a time to think, but a time to act. The Captain of the
Guard, Asiris, needed to gather a sizable group to stop the Lizardmen. T’was
his decision to recruit the best warriors he could find at the First Bank of
Britain. Here he was able to gather a strong group of warriors, in addition to a
group of mages - a few of which had managed to tame mighty dragons.
The rest is history. The Britain Army lead by Asiris first attacked the
Lizardmen tribes in the swamp north of Trinsic. Here they encountered some
resistance - but nothing that could stop warriors so well trained. The army then
moved to the camp of Sysser, South West of Trinsic. Here they found many tribes
of Lizardmen protecting the Chieftain Sysser. They fought until only a single
Lizardmen was left alive. T’was a long fight that left many warriors injured,
and some dead, among the Britain Army lead by Asiris. However, in the end, the
brave warriors, mages, and dragons were finally able to kill the last remaining
Lizardman, the mighty Chieftain Sysser himself. The bodies of the vile beasts
covered the ground, and though many brave warriors were wounded that day, once
again the citizens of Britain were able to win an important battle against the
forces of evil, no doubt saving the lives of many innocents.
Thank you, to all the brave warriors that fought that day.
