The First to Fall


Before the Storm…

«Flame lights up and gets bigger. Change of scene: Queen of Monsters in her throne»

???: What ARE you? And where am I?

Queen Of Monsters: The better question to ask is, "who are YOU? And what will you become, if your path does not change?"
Queen of Monsters: Look at yourself, my little hothead. You are skilled, yes, but… weaker than you should be.
Queen of Monsters: Held back by those who do not see the greatness burning within you. But I… do.

Tyndarius: Flattery and flowery words mean nothing to me. Explain yourself.
Tyndarius: What IS this place?

Queen of Monsters: Such forceful words from one so insubstantial.
Queen of Monsters: Look around you, poppet, and take care how you speak to me…
Queen of Monsters: Or you may never wake up.

Tyndarius: Then I'm asleep, and you've conscripted my dreams for some unknown purpose.

Queen of Monsters: Very good. A fast, thorough assessment.. Your dreams are not all I intend to invade.

You are a soldier. You follow orders, enforce others' rules. Such as waste.

With my help, you could be greater than you know. A general. Warlord of a nation.

Control of your magic, your blade, and your destiny. THAT is what I offer.

Tyndarius: I will bow to no one.

Queen of Monsters: I would not ask you to. But I DO require proof of your allegiance.
Queen of Monsters: We can help each other, you and I.

Queen of Monsters: Sign it, and absolute power will be yours.
Queen of Monsters: THose who wish to join with you will gain a portion of your strength - enhanced by mine.
Queen of Monsters: And in return, their power - their actions - their lives will belong to ou. Entirely.

Tyndarius: it is an enticing offer. But everything has a price. What. Is. Yours?

«Scene changes to Tyndarius waking up in a tent»

Tyndarius: Shuri's sword! A dream… just a dream. Pity.

Until I am free, all I ask for in return is one… small… favor.
