chapter 1

 

It was the time of winter war in Galamos, the beautiful but dangerous place Griselda used to call her home. Griselda was just a little baby then, travelling with her tribe in her mothers arms. They were escaping the southern tribe, who had been slaughtering their people for decades. Southern area was conquered by a cruel, big tribe who ruled most of the Galamos, The Empire. There were only small areas where they hadn't reached in Galamos. One of the areas was The Ice caves. Griseldas tribe the Ice people were doomed to live there for the rest of their lives. Or serve as slaves in the southern tribe.

 

The Ice people had no chance to grow food in their lands or hunt. They lived so high up in the northern mountains that nothing grew or lived there. Exept for them. Just to be able to survive they stole food from the Empires big fields in the south. That obviously annoyed the Empire greatly. But the Empire had no resistance to cold, like the Ice people did. Empire soldiers would freeze in their cold plate armours trying to conquer the nortern Galamos, which they had learned in the second great war.

 

As the gathering group was about to reach the mountains and the entrance to the cave nexus, on their way back from the southern Empires lands they noticed something suspicious. All of the guards were gone. No one was there to warn the tribe that the Empires army was right behind them. They would need back up immediately. The gathering group reached the entrance of the caves only to find out that The Empire had arrived there first. The icy walls of the cave were covered in blood of their friends and family. There were corpses everywhere. They run in hoping that the Empire soldiers hadn't found all of them. The cave nexus was a massive cave labyrinth going all around the big mountain Cindra. There were no soldiers to be seen. Maybe they had all gotten lost in the caves. It happens to the best of us. They reached the main entrance hall just to find more tribe members slaughtered. The blood of their friends had already frozen to the walls and floors of their beloved cave. But there was no time to waste if they wanted to hold on to their precious lives. The hall had five very alike looking tunnels leaving from it. They chose the one leftest to them, knowing they wouldn't lead any soldiers right to their homes by running this way. While running ahead in to the tunnel they heard The Empire soldiers arriwing to the entrance of the tunnel. This wasn't the first time Empire soldiers had reached the enrtance of the cave. Tough only rarely would they walk in for their fear of getting lost in the nexus.
