An Alliance Divided


«Scene: Alteon and Valen in Swordhaven with multiple knights»

King Alteon: As of this moment, we have two villages under attack by Dethrix's men.
King Alteon: We will have to divide our forces if we are to defend them both.
King Alteon: I will take half of Swordhaven's army and head to Ostfort.

«Alteon turns to Valen»

King Alteon: Valen you'll take the other half and go north to Highwick.
King Alteon: It won't be easy fighting this battle on two fronts.
King Alteon: But if we give it all we have, we can succeed. I know we can.

Valen: But we'll be going to rescue Lynaria first, of course.

«Closer shot of Valen»

Valen: …we WILL, won't we?

«Screen pans right to Alteon»

King Alteon: There's no time. The villages will be destroyed before we make it back.

«Valen clenches his fists»

Valen: And Lynaria will die while we fight to save them!
Valen: She is one of us! We can't just leave her.

«Screen returns to Valen and Alteon»

King Alteon: Yes, she IS one of us.
King Alteon: And that means she has chosen to risk her own life for the sake of our people.
King Alteon: She would not want us to save her if it meant allowing these cities to fall.
King Alteon: As painful as this is, our duty must be to those who cannot protect themselves.

Valen: No. I can't accept that.

King Alteon: Valen, you MUST accept it.
King Alteon: I am your king, and this is my decree. Do you defy it?


«Valen lowers his fists»

Valen: No. Of course not.

King Alteon: I am glad I can still count on you, my friend.

«Valen closes his eyes»

With these challenges we now face, we will have to depend on each other more than ever.
