Intro: The Empires Miracle
Once upon a time, in a medieval land.
Two castles were built by peasants of two empires, each seperated only by a great, but shallow river.
This river was called the Broad Road, named that because the runway of the stream was once the great road to a kingdom united in peace.
A kingdom ruled by a family combined from both sides of the Agathan and Mason families, the king was from the side of "Agatha" and he's wife, the queen, was from the side of "Mason".
As the king and queen lived their lives out in happines, the same happened to their cities of the great kingdom of (name here??).
Taxes went down, villagers were provided with "king-provided" money for their endeavors ALOT easier than when the kingdoms were seperated thus causing the united kingdom of (spell name here) to flourish beyond any other kingdom in the land.
As the kingdom progressed, the rumor of its succes spread... to the helping hands aswell as the ill-intended towns of the sorrounding lands..
The King and Queen did not get any younger with passing time.. They knew they had to produce an heir to the throne, be it prince or princess..
Otherwise, the Throne, the heir and their legacy would surely fall to the next most power hungry man.
to the kings and queens amazement, they had a son, a big baby for a newborn, and at the age of 6 he was already swinging big sticks around -- *interlude*
But soon the king and queen were seperated by the cruel hand of death... (queen (name) dies in bed at the age of 46 from an unknown disease. King (name) sits by her side and swears an oath to keep the families united forever.)

Chapter 1: The Agathan And Mason.
As the Prince of Agatha got older, his natural strength and valor put everyone on the training fields to the test.
he had remarkable skills in Melee combat, Archery, Sword/axe/mace/flail/spear/halbards/speartossing and everything from sticks to the kings sword itself..
The king was impressed but afraid he might turn out to be a violent heir to the throne..
The king was afraid his son, Brad, might lead the kingdom back to the dark ages, where the Mason Order and Agathan Kingdom were at war, leading village raids daily, plundering, and killing..
At the same time, in the Mason side of the family, the queens younger brother, (Malric) was waiting for the perfect time to initiate a plot he had been scheming, for years (waiting for he's sister to die).
For it was an oath taken by every Mason Family member not to harm anyone in from their family be it mason or agatha in any way, shape or form. (this was a treaty agatha suggested to create peace between the waring kingdoms)
If the oath was broken, and it was discovered, the accused family member would be exiled from the land, and killed if ever attempting to return - Banished.

Luckily for the Queen, Her brother Malric, had a daughter with he's countess (whatever name); a daugther only few years younger than the Agathan Prince Brad.. And her name was; Jade.
Even Though Jade was a countess daughter, and member of the royal family of the Mason Order, she was much ignored, even by her father, who was busy planning for he's own dominion, Tending to even dark magic to get his will fulfilled *sparks and shit happens*.

Jade spent most of her time playing around in the mason side of the kingdom (west side), making everyone a friend, even the mere peasants knew there was something very special about Jade, she was much too kind for a Mason family member, and rumors spread she might one day lead the mason into a glorious age of prosperity and happiness, the only thing preventing this of course, was her father Malric.

Chapter 2: The Breaking of the "Agathan Order".
When Malric Mason realised he was the heir to the throne, next after Brad Agatha, he started plotting against Brad, but he knew he could not kill him.
For if he broke the family oath he had given to he's family "council" there was no way they would accept him as their king...
So Malric started digging deeper into the magics of necromancy, wizardry, artificial manufaction of enchanted weapons and even Polymorphing.
This was all Malrics own secret, which nobody except for a cursed Treant came to know about by accident one day malric thought he was practicing magics all alone in the west forest, this treant (Barky?!) Served Malric in anyway he could, with the promise of being transformed into a living being, one of flesh and blood, not bark and leaves.
Malric obviously promised the treant its wish in return for its services, but on one condition.
He. Must, Be, King... only then can the treant "break" the curse.
(the treant (Barky) agreed and proceeded as malrics eternal servant - until Malric would be king and the deal is ensured)
One night, The Agathan king (name) decided Brad was of age to persue a bride to ensure the future of the peace in the kingdom, Although, he was sceptic because of Brads will to be a great warrior and not a king, the king proceeded.
Brad was not liking it one bit (17 years old), claiming he was not at all ready, nor willing to take a bride into he's domain.
but ultimately the king forced Brad to go to the land of the Mason Order (west) to persue the marrige of Jade (15). (the king is VERY worried about the throne heir at this point - he was 53 years of age).
Brad Objected, telling he's father they are both WAY too young to be wowed, but the king (name) once again, ignored brads objections and forced he's son back to his corridors.

Chapter 3: The Seperation.

Prince Brad was taken with a battalion of knights towards the mason lands (through the crossroad seperating the eastern(Mason)/western(Agathan) and southern(primary) kingdom) against his will.
Brad was waiting for the perfect opportunity to get out of this "mess" his father had forced him into, asking guards (name, name and name) what to do, being the princes's personal bodyguards, and good friends, they always tried their best to advice the prince to do what he felt was right with no questions asked.

*walking on the road, 60% way to the crossing*
Brad: "guys, im only 17, i am not at all ready to marry some girl who is even younger than me" D:
(knight1): "But Sire, you will quickly learn that if you do not go there, not only will you miss the girl of your life, but also you will greatly dissappoint your father."
(knight2): "AND WHO DO YOU THINK THE KING BEHEADS FIRST IF HE REALISES WE ARE HELPING YOU DEFY HIM!?"
(knight3): "*Yawn* Yep... we simply can't allow it mate.. it would be the end of us" :(
Brad: "oh come on guys, my father is no devil... he woulndn't execute you for helping me get away from a little - cavalry?"
(knight3): ".... cava.. CAVALRY!?"
(all 3 knights): "GAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHH!!!"
*Brad storms around knocking he's knights off their horses, and starteling the riderless horses*
*Brad is laughing*
*knights yell at brad to calm down and stop wrecking havoc*
*Brad ignores them*
(all 3 knights): "BRAAAAAD STOP IT! YOUR HORSE IS OUT OF CONTROL!!!"
*brads horse runs wild due to the chaos*
*Brad laughs it off*
*Brad gets distanced from he's soldiers who immediatly start a search for him*

Chapter 5: Malrics Betrayal.
As the battalion and coachwagon with Brads essential belongings reached the Broad Road Crossing (the long road to the southern kingdom that seperates the mason(west) and Agathan(east) kingdoms)
they all began to feel a bit wary.

*Soldier dies/faints from wounds*

*Malric and he's personal guards makes an entry*

Malric: "Succeding you, Brad. MEN!! CEASE THEIR WEAPONS!"
*battalion fights malrics personal guard but is ultimatlely overpowered by sheer numbers*
*they chain the battalion soldiers up*

Malric: *manical laughter*
Brad: "TREACHERY!! WHAT IS THIS!? WHY MALRIC?!"
Malric: "You never wanted the crown anyway, Brad... so whats the problem?.. i am just helping you out my boy"
Brad: "WHAT?!!!!!"
*Treant (barky) ensnares brad in a set of branches/roots*
Malric: "hehehehAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA WHAT NOW WILL YOU DO, PRINCE?!"

Malric: "My Key, to the Empire..."
Brad: "MY FATHER WILL HEAR OF THIS AND YOU WILL BE BANISHED!!"
Malric: "hmmhmmhehehehahahAHAHAHAHA, you think im stupid, Braaaad? I HAVE PREPARED FOR THIS MOMENT FOR YEARS!, EVER SINCE YOUR MOTHER--"
*Brad smacks malric across the face*

Brad: "DON'T YOU DARE MENTION HER, YOU WRETCH!"
Malric: "grrr.... hmm.. hehehe.. but you see Brad, she is my sister, therefore, the only way for me to reach the throneroom and be king of this great empire, is, to get rid, of YOU"
*Brad panics*
Malric: "YOU WANTED TO BE A GREAT WARRIOR DIDN'T YOU?! BRAD?!... WELL I SHALL GRANT YOU A GIFT MY "PRINCE"...
Brad: "what?!"
*malric chants a curse*
Malric: "HEEEHAHAAAAAAAH!!"
Malric: "BY MY HAND YOU SHALL BE CURSED, AND FOREVER AN ETERNAL SCOURGE! YOU WANTED TO BE A WARRIOR? - GRANTED!! BUT YOU WOULD WISH THAT THIS SPELL WOULD BE DISMANTLED! YOU SHALL BECOME THE GREATEST GUARDIAN THE LAND HAVE EVER SEEN, FOREVER BOUND ONLY TO VALOR!! YOU SHALL BE COMBINED WITH THE STRENGTH OF YOUR HORSE TO COMPELL ANY SPELL, AND YOU WILL GUARD THIS RIVER IF YOU WISH FOR YOURSELF TO STAY WELL!" (maybe that could be done better, was kinda pulled out of my ass).
*Brads legs start flaring in magical power*
*Twin's (brads horse) head and neck start flaring in the same manner*
*the flares explode, and the magnetism of Brads torso and Twins body are drawn together*
*Spell seals them as one*
*Everything about brad is increased 10-fold, Strength, intelligence, agility, and... Temper.*

(soldiers): *Glaring in fear*
*Brad grows bullhorns, and fangs like a wolf, he's eyes are bleaked out, (pupils fade), and he's muscles are bulking up*
*spell is complete*
*Brad growls in anger*
Malric: "hehehehahahah.. how do you like the title as the greatest warrior in the land? BRAD?.."
Brad: "GRRRRREEAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!"
Malric: "YOU WILL BE BOUND TO THIS RIVER!"

*magicly makes water flow in the road (the road that seperates east/west kingdom, and leads to the southern (prime) united kingdom)*
Malric: "AND IF ANYONE TRESPASSES HERE YOU WILL MAKE SURE THEY NEVER CROSS THE RIVER, EVER!!"
Malric: "IF YOU CAN UPHOLD THIS TASK UNTIL YOU PROVE YOURSELF THE RIGHTEOUS KING OF THE THRONE, BRAD, THEN YOU SHALL BE TURNED BACK INTO YOUR PREVIOUS SELF AND AS FROM THIS DAY YOU WILL BE KNOWN AS BRADWARDEN, THE CENTAUR!!"

Brad: "how am i suppose to prove myself the greatest warrior of the land if i can't leave this artificial river of yours?!"
Malric: "hehehehe... i am not one to just toss my nephew on the road never to give him a chance, my damned FAMILY OATH PREVENTS IT!!"
Malric: "But... there are ways..."
Brad: "ways?*
Malric: "Oh yes Brad >:)... like, how is a manhorse who can barely walk on he's legs suppose to be a great warrior?, hmpf, balance will come in time, for now, i give you a double edged axe, Horseshoe, it will serve as your primary fighting weapon. i give you the bow of tides, able to form itself and its razorsharp arrows from the very waters of this river"
Brad: "Why would you give me these things?... why don't you just leave me here to starve?"
Malric: "Well Brad.... or BradWARDEN, yeah.. that has a nice ring to it, Bradwarden the Centaur? hmm? like i said, my family oath forbids me of betrayal, but like i said, there are way to grant a wish without bearing the fault of betrayal... as long as your wish is granted, to be the greatest warrior of the land, there is pretty much nothing that prevents me from restraining you to say.--
Bradwarden: "WHAT?!"
Malric: "a river" >:)
*Bradwarden realises he is now a prisoner of he's own wish*

*Magic barrier knocks Bradwarden off course*

Bradwarden: *GRUNT* *SNORT* GGGGRRRAAAEEEEERRRRAAAHHHHHGGGG!!!
Malric: "Its useless horseman, you cannot break the curse that way.." :)
Bradwarden: "IF I CANNOT FIGHT TO PROVE MY STRENGTH, AND MUST REMAIN A GUARDIAN HERE, HOW CAN I BREAK THE CURSE!?"
Malric: "hehehhe thats the thing HORSEY, you must make a MASON ORDER FAMILY member return you to your human form, by making them actually like you, but since you are hagard and violent with a-"
*Bradwarden headbutts the magic barrier in aggression and is once again knocked on to the ground*

Malric: "ahem... an ill temper, i doubt that will ever happen... and so my plan is perfect dont you see?!" :D
Bradwarden: "YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO THIS EMPIRE, MALRIC, BY MY RIGHTS OF FUTURE KING, I SWEAR THE LAST THING I DO WILL BE BEHEADING YOU!!!"
*Bradwarden rushes off into the woods*

Malric: "TAKE THE ROYAL BATTALLION PRISONER!! WE CAN'T HAVE THEM RUNNING OFF TO WARN THE AGATHAN NOR THE UNITED EMPIRE ABOUT THIS!!"
*Agathan battalion guards are restrained, and stripped of weapons, and finally locked into prison wagons*
Malric: "MAKE SURE YOU GET EVERY SINGLE SOLDIER!"

Chapter 7: Loneliness


As Bradwarden was searching for a cave to shelter himself in near the riverbend, he came upon the Coachwagon with he's personal belongings that for some reason were not plundered by the Masons.
Brad Searched the belongings and found three items that meant the most to him.
His personal armor and helmet.
The Horn of Empires (agathan guards have these too, to alert the kingdoms in times of peril, however, Brads Horn is decorated royally)
A Family Picture of the United family (King, Brad, Queen, Jade, Malric, Countess(Malrics wife), and he's other family members (like nephews, uncles, cousins, aunts etc)
Not able to carry anymore stuff, Bradwarden decided to leave the rest behind to be salvaged later, for now, he had to find a cave if he wanted to avoid sickness, the clouds were darkening and thunder in the horizon was heard...
Bradwarden searched from one end of the river to another in a quick pace (faster than any horse in the world x10) he soon realised there was no caves to be found near the river...
Frustrated by his failure to find shelter, Bradwarden drew he's axe Horseshoe.
Bradwarden: "IF THERE IS NO CAVES IN THIS WRETCHED RIVER!! ILL MAKE MY OWN!!"
*Bradwarden Draws he's Axe, Horseshoe*
*Swings Horseshoe at a rock wall*
*wall explodes*
Bradwarden: *GASP*... "WHAT... WHAT POWER?!"

*dust blows off in the wind*

Bradwarden: "what in the name of...."
At this point Bradwarden realised a single hard swing with Horseshoe was enough to make a hole in a mountain 30 feet wide and 50 feet deep.
Brad tried once again to create the same result 60 metres away from he's newly created cave.
To Bradwardens suprise the second swing on the rock wall, did nothing... the axe peeled off the rock as if it was a mere pickaxe picking away at a mountain
Bradwarden: "WHAT?!.. one second ago i almost tilted over the mountain, and now i can barely scratch the outside?!"
*Bradwarden glares at he's Axe, then back at the wall, then back to the Axe, and back at the wall*

Bradwarden: "thats odd..."
*Bradwarden wanders towards he's cave in a slow, sad and confused mood*
*he realise that sleeping on cold soil might not be the most comfortable way to spend a rainy night*

So bradwarden picks up branches, leaves and hay from the horse-fodder wagon that was also abandonned in the mason raid.
even though everything but the hay was wet at the time he had made a nest/bed, Bradwarden was positive, for this sure beat sleeping in wet mud.
*Bradwarden lays down*
Bradwarden Thinking: "And this is only the beginning?!... this is what its like to be the greatest champion the empire has seen, ever?"
Bradwarden Whispers to himself: "what a gift...." :(

Chapter 8: Re-united
*morning dew, sunshine, birds singing*
*Bradwarden awakes, but is tired from the previous events the day before*

Bradwarden: "ugh... my head.. what the--*
Bradwarden: "GRRRRAAARRRGHH I FORGOT!!"
*Bradwarden slams the wall so dust falls from the cave, and a rock bonks him on the head*
Bradwarden: "ARRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!"
*Bradwarden smashes the rock with his fist so hard a crater is formed around the rocks position and its vaporized*
Bradwarden: "WHAT?!... HOW THE..."
*he tries again with no result*
*he tries again...*
*and again...*
*Nothing*

Bradwarden: "WHAT IN THE NAME OF (the united empire) IS THIS ODDFUL CURSE!? ONE MOMENT I CRUSH A ROCK AND CREATE A CRATER, AND WHEN I TRY TO REPEAT THE ACTION NOTHING HAPPENS!!"
Bradwarden: "ALL BECAUSE I WAS ANGRY IN THE MO---"
Bradwarden: "In the moment?..."
*3 knights/treants make noise outside Bradwardens cave, and Brad notices*
(get used to the 3 knights being called the 3 treants from now on)
(knight1(treant)): "Halt brother, the water there is too deep!!"
(Knight3(treant): "oh pish posh, im thirsty!"
*treant3 roots himself in the deep part of the river near brads cave*
(treant3) *relieved sigh*
(knight2(treant): "GET OUT OF THERE YOU FOOL!! YOU WILL DROWN!! YOU KNOW WE CANNOT HAVE TOO MUCH WATER IN OUR ROOTS!!"
(treant3): "hmm... are you sure?... because i feel my thirst being sated quite the lot!.."
(treant1): "Brother, last nights rain almost killed us all by itself, how are you gonna survive the river?!"
(treant2): "YEAH YOU'LL DIE IDIOT!! GET OUT!! IM NOT COMING IN THERE FOR YOU!!"DJDSZCCJKXDSDSSS"
*treant1 knocks treant2 in the backhead, and he(treant2) falls asleep*
(treant1): "ahem... now, on a serious note brother... you've been in there far too long already and---"
*treant3 lost conciousness*

(treant1): *GASP* "WAKE UP!!. WAKE UP YOU FOOL (treant3) NEEDS HELP!!"
*treant1 shakes treant2 violently, but he is fast asleep*
(treant1): "GRRR!! WHAT DO I DO!? WHAT DO I DO?!, UHM, TREANT3!! WAKE UP, UH, BREAKFAST IS READY!!!"
*nothing happens*
(treant1): *facepalm* "this always happens to me..."
*treant1 keeps shouting in an attempt to wake them both up, without succes*
*treant1 panics and starts shouting for help*

*rumbeling noise*
(treant1) *GASP!* "what in the blazes!?"
Bradwarden: "WHO DARES STEP A FOOT INTO MY DOMAIN!!" *echo*
*Bradwarden sniffs around curiously*
*Bradwarden catches a scent*

Bradwarden: *gasp* "my bodyguards!? but, HOW?!"

*Bradwarden sprints toward the scene*

(treant1): "WILL NO BODY HELP MY BROTHER!?"
*Bradwarden smashes through some bushes while growling and being violent in general*
*Bradwarden rips treant3 out of the ground in a hasty pull*

*treant3 gains conciousness*
*treant1 is freightened and freezed in tree form*
Bradwarden: "TRESPASSER!!"
Treant3: "WO-WO-WO-WHAT?!"
Bradwarden: "WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE, UHM, CREATURE?!"
Treant3: "id, i, i was just a bit thirsty!" :(
Bradwarden: "YOU WILL NEVER DRINK FROM THESE RIVER AGAIN, TREANT, IF YOU DO, I WILL CARVE YOU INTO A SLAVES STOOL!!!!"
Bradwarden: "UNDERSTOOD?!"
Treant3: *sinks a lump in he's throat* "uhm, certainly Brad"
Bradwarden: "WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY!?"

*Bradwarden looses his grip on the treants "throat"*
Treant3: "uhm... i said brad??" :)
Bradwarden: "huh?... how... how do you know my name?"
*Bradwarden puts down the treant gently*
*Treant3 brushes itself off*
*Treant1 peeks with one eye closed, still frightened*
*treant2 is still sound asleep*

Treant3: "sire... we are your personal bodyguards! "knight1, 2 and 3"!
Bradwarden: "you're no bodyguard of mine!! you're a damned tree!!"
Treant3: "bu-bu-but sir, Malric cursed us when we tried to protect you! Don't you remember?!"

*Bradwarden thinks for a moment*

Bradwarden: "... hmm... thats strange.. why were you not captured in the mason raid?"
Treant1: "HE MUST HAVE FORGOTTON ABOUT US IN THE MIDST OF THE CHAOS MILORD!"

*Bradwarden is starteled and turns around in a violent manner ready to swing Horseshoe(axe)*
*treant1 freezes again*

Treant3: "oh come on out treant1, its all fine, its the master! we found him!"
*Treant1 wakes up carefully*

Treant1: "It is?..." *looks hard* "BY THE GODS IT IS!!"
Treant1: "MASTER!! HOW, WH-WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!"
Bradwarden: "Malric betrayed the crown, he seeks to corrupt it, and the only one standing in the way of his rule, is me..."

*treant2 wakes up*
*treant2 screams and freezes in "treeform"*
Treant3: "look who woke up... *yawn*"
Treant2: "WHATS THIS=!?!??! WHATS HAPPENING!! HOW DID YOU GET OUT OF THE RI---"

*treant2 screams his lungs out upon spotting Bradwarden*
*the other 2 treants (1 and 3) tries to calm their brother down*
Bradwarden: "Knight2, its me, Brad..."
Treant2: "Brad?.. Our brad?... the master? WOWHATS WWH.. WHATS HAPPENED TO YOU?!"
Treant1: "that is actually and excellent question sire, how come your pupils are gone, why do you have horns, why are you a HORSE?!"
*Bradwarden stomps the ground, stunning the treants for a moment*
Bradwarden: "BECAUSE OF MALRIC!!"

*3treants look at eachother in a weird manner*

Bradwarden: "look, he cursed me, OKAY?.. he fulfilled my wish of being the greatest warrior the land have ever seen, but the wish was corrupted and he has restrained me to this river, until i can prove myself the greatest warrior, which is impossible as i am restrained to this crossing, OR if i can make a Mason family member love me, and who am i kidding, I AM A MONSTER!! LOOK AT ME!"

Treant1: "But sire, Malric swore and oath to--"
Bradwarden: "TO NEVER HARM A FAMILY MEMBER I KNOW!!, AND TECHNICALLY HE HASN'T HARMED ME!! HE EMPOWERED ME AND IMPRISONED ME!"
Treant3: "that does seem like quite the catch to a wish ehh?... thats why i hate magic, genies, wizards, fairies... there is always a catch to their services.. like.,.. you sacrifice your soul and stuff like that"
*bradwarden growls into Treant3's face*
*Treant3 is scared and freezes*

Bradwarden: "YOU SEE?! EVEN MY BEST FRIENDS ARE DISGUSTED WITH MY APPEARENCE!!"
Treant2: "NO WERE NOT!!"
Bradwarden: "Huh??"
Treant2: "THESE GUYS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THE SILLIEST OF COWARDS I HAVE EVER BEEN FORCED INTO SERVICE WITH!!"
Treant2: "WHO DO YOU THINK CALLED THE CHARGE WHEN YOU WERE BEING CURSED BY MALRIC?!"
Treant2: "WHO WAS CHEERING YOU UP WHEN YOU WERE ALL DOWN JUST BECAUSE YOU WERE FORCED INTO MARRIAGE?! AND THE THE MASON PRINCESS JADE?! MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN THIS LAND WOULD GIVE THEIR RIGHT ARM FOR SUCH A TURN OF EVENTS"
Treant2: "IT WAS ALL ME!!"
Treant3: "hey, hey now... we all helped didn't we? we went into a battle beyond any chances of victory and--"
Treant2: "BUT IT WAS ME WHO CALLED THE CHARGE WASN'T IT?!"
Treant1: "that might be so, but you were wrong about the "cheering" part... Brother... you are a ferocious warrior, but you do not posses the skills to "comfort" people"
Treant2: "AND WHY IS THAT, MAGGOT?"
Treant3: "what do you think, grumpy?"
Treant2: "WHAT I--- what am i thinking?... well.."
Bradwarden: "well, Treant2, you have always been a little ill tempered haven't you?"
Treant2: "WHWHO WHAT ABOUT YOURSELF?!"
*Treant1 slaps treants 2 on the right cheek*
Treant1: "need i remind you who your master is?"
*Treant2 realises he just commited a crime in talking back to he's master*

Treant2: "MASTER!! FORGIVENESS YOUR HEINOUS!! I AM JUST, JUST FRUSTRATED BECAUSE OF THIS CURSE!! LOOK AT US!! WE ARE TREES!!!"
Bradwarden: "I figured that out for myself when i entered this part of the river, and saved your brother"
Treant3: "yeah thanks for that by the way." *bows*
Treant2: "but, but how are we suppose to break this curse?! Malric didn't tell us!! as a matter of fact, he completely forgot he cursed us in the first place!"
Treant1: "and to our own luck.. may i suggest what would have happened if he "remembered" us?"
Treant2: "DON'T SAY IT!"
Treant3: "we would be in a stove right now... heating up he's castle"
*treant2 faints and freezes in treeform*
Bradwarden: "well... that was... interresting"
Treant1: "but he is right sire, how are we suppose to break this spell?"
Bradwarden: "i don't know... for now you can follow me back to my dungeon."
Treant3: "you mean corridors?, room?, uhm.. sector?"
Bradwarden: "its a cave..."

*treant2 awakes in shock*
Treant2: "PFF A CAVE?!"
Bradwarden: "Yes... a cave..."
Treant2: "BU-BUT WE MUST RETURN TO THE UNITED EMPIRE AND WARN THE KING OF MALRICS INTENTIONS!?"
Bradwarden: "i... i can't..."
(3treants): "WHY?!"
Bradwarden: "because... Malric warned me never to leave the riverbend... if i do, i... i don't know what could happen"
Treant3: "he didn't tell you the consequence?"
Bradwarden: "no he didn't... otherwise i would be storming the mason kingdom, looking for him already"

*3treants think*
*pling!* (lightbulp)

Treant1: "But master, we are not restrained to the river."
Treant3: "thats right! we can warn the king for you!"
Treant2: "DON'T BE FOOLS... LOOK AT US. WE. ARE. TREES!"
Treant3: "but the king would sure remember our voices brother!"
Bradwarden: "and how do you intend to get past the guards and actually see the king?"
Treant3: "we'd-uhhm... DAMNIT!!!"
Bradwarden: "Yeah thats what i thought..."
Treant1: "there must be a way we can serve you sire!"
Bradwarden: "there is... you can start by escorting me back to my cave"
(3Treants): "AT ONCE SIRE

*they leave for the cave*
