Leanora, the town Cryer
It was a night like many others, with a bright
moon and many stars but the citizens of Cove did not have the time to appreciate
the spectacle. There was fear in the eyes of the citizens of Cove. The town had
been under attack all the day and even if the guards of Cove had been able to
protect the town, many citizens had been wounded during the attacks.
All these attacks came from the same place: the orc fort south of Cove. The
captain of the Guards of Cove was asking himself how many orcs were gathering in
the fort and if the town of Cove could really survive another large-scale
attack. So he decided to send a small detachment of Guards to scout the area
near the Orc Fort. The Royal Guard Garagan was leading the detachment.
The group of warriors tried to get near the Orc Fort without making a sound,
using only the moon as a light source. Garagan could not believe to his eyes: he
had never seen so many orcs.
The guardsmen did not see the Orcs coming behind them - and the Orcs were
equally surprised to see the group of Royal Guards so near the Fort. The Orcs
did not hesitate, attacking immediately. From the Fort more Orcs came, attracted
by the yelling of the others and by the sounds of combat. The Royal Guards
fought to the last man still able to hold a sword. They died as heroes - all but
one. Only Garagan was able to survive, to escape the trap even though he was
badly wounded. He could not venture back to Cove because the Orcs had already
blocked access to the town’s single entrance. Instead, he decided to travel to
Britain in order to find some help among the Royal Garrison and other brave
warriors found within the city’s limits.
Garagan managed to arrive in Britain, surprised to see how many brave warriors
were ready to take arms and to risk their lives to save the town of Cove and its
Through the help of skilled mages, the Britain warriors lead by Garagan arrived
near the Fort. It was a real surprise to see how many Orcs were protecting the
Fort: it was a complete Army. A long fight ensued and many brave warriors lost
their lives during the bloody battle - but they kept advancing and, in the end,
were able to defeat the evil Orc Army.
What more can be said about the heroic citizens of Britain, who did not hesitate
to take a great risk to save the citizens of Cove?
