Events Of Edit

A Knight called Hervis Daubeny has offended the Blackstone Legion, the more militant of many Legions of knights occupying the land of Ashfeld. As a consequence, he, his soldiers and his castle have come under attack. The player character is introduced as a Warden, a member of an ancient order dedicated to serving the good of humanity, now currently brought to Daubeny's service as a mercenary. The opposition is lead by the second-in-command of the Blackstone Legion, a Lawbringer by the name of Holden Cross

The player's first command is to defend the East Wall, cutting down many Blackstone captains. They battle their way down to where a handful of Blackstone soldiers are attempting to take the courtyard. Felling the threat, the Warden is ambushed by a line of archers from above, and then fights their way up along the opposite wall to reach a down catapult blocking their path to the archers. Thinking quickly, they disabled the catapult, sending the archers tumbling from the rampart. Intrigued, Cross signals to his men to bring in a massive ram-headed battering ram, managing to blow open a hole away from the gate into the yard, sending a battalion of captains and soldiers in, only for the Warden to successfully hold them off. Soon, however, the main gate is finally destroyed and Holden Cross enters, cutting down a few poor men before demanding that Daubeny step forward. When he sends his men to stand back, Cross challenges him to trial by combat, although Daubeny refuses, labeling a fight with Cross as "not a trial", rather an "execution." Holden deigns instead to send forth his second, a Blackstone-affiliated Warden named Ademar, while Daubeny conscripts the Warden as his second. The two warriors duel, resulting in the Warden executing his counterpart. Cross shows a look of interest on his face before approaching Daubeny, and commenting that the Legion would look very bad for letting a "common mercenary" defeat one of their own. He then takes his former second's sword, and knights the Warden in his place, tossing their old sword at Daubeny's feet as a show of force before departing with his new comrade, the Warden following with a brief moment of reluctance.
