The imperial foot soldiers’ surrender happened unprecedentedly quick. Without their meat shields, the archers and mages knew that they would die. By the time a bunch of dragons landed behind the Eastguard army, KMega subdued the entire twenty thousand man army, who were shocked until Astrid broke their awe by talking to Luke about a snack for her new friends.
With his army collapsing, the general on the empire’s side did the only thing he could and ran. He fled with the knight calvary, leaving the rear-line support bewildered. Once KMega had captured the whole army, he asked Luke to see to their being well-cared for.
He then strode toward the Markwell Empire’s side as a red dragon leaped over the two armies upon realizing his destination.
One player, a mercenary on Eastguard’s side, watched KMega in amazement of KMega’s prestige. He knew of KMega but had never had seen him before because he had joined after the first war. The player had soon befriended the other young soldiers that were being trained by the republic and had acquired his companion buddy this way. After thinking about it, the player broke ranks to follow KMega. He was not alone as several in the Eastguard army followed KMega as well.

There was a golden rule for priests in games: never war outside their home territory. There were many reasons, a good start being that they were not suited for long-distance travel. They spent most of their time kneeling and praying, kneeling and healing, kneeling and… Another reason was their teachings. With the exception of the God of War, whose priests were all paladins with heavy armor and shields to protect themselves with and perform their duty of defending the rest of their brethren, priests were forbidden from attacking and invading a foreign body surmounted the attacking taboo. Perhaps the biggest problem, however, was a simple fact that they were enemy number one. When supporting a defending army their help was excusable, but if a priest was caught invading, they would be the first target of enemy commanders. Those they aided would lose much more protecting priests than the gain from the actual healing priests would perform. A single priest could only cover two or three soldiers, but the numbers needed to cover the priest would reach the dozens.
Luke was a little surprised upon seeing his army leaving without him. He had never considered invading.
“Break camp! Get into march formation. Third detachment, guard the priests and look after the prisoners. Fourth detachment, relay a message back to Eastguard and set up a supply line! Our hero has returned and shall lead the charge against the Markwell Empire. Today, we attack those that have attacked us for so long! Let their retribution be swift and justice prevail!” (Luke)
Luke turned to the blue dragon with a yellow bow ribbon tied around her right horn.
KMega had completely bluffed when he had mentioned the dragons coming over to aid him, but by command of their king, they were to burn the corruption, which was what the others were doing. As for the dragon, she watched the military leader with wonder. In her mind, she noted, ‘He must be rich. That armor of his looks nice, and he receives such respect from everyone, not as much as the half-breed, but he’s taken already.’ (Author’s note: And so, a year later, they were married with 5 children on the way. Starting a bloodline of dragon generals!!! Okay, I’m joking… Maybe!)
