Dueling the greatest fencer in the kingdom wouldn’t have been your first choice, but it’s the only one you have if you don’t want to end up in the gallows. You are to prove your innocence through Trial of Combat.
Thankfully you called in a favor to one of the town’s swordsmiths. With a brand new Trident Dagger, you might actually stand a chance. But then again, as you watch the fencer unsheath his rapier and give it a casual flourish, you still feel a small tremor of fear in your grip.
You stand watch from the tower, keeping your guard post even when all appears still and quiet. While the hour is late and it is unlikely that the enemy will attack tonight, it is your duty to keep the camp safe. At the first sign of danger, you are to sound the alarm.
Leaning on your Sentinel Spear, you stifle an exhausted yawn. You are prepared to wait and to watch for hours, but that does not make you miss your bed any less. Some coffee would be much appreciated.
