“I’m headed to Wartsgard!” The precise moment when Daniel Black said those words, everyone inside The Black Stallion glanced at him.
The bartender shook nervously. “ Please my lord, no one should mention that accursed land! Especially with this many people listening!” Daniel finished drinking and turned to the tables in the back section of the tavern. “Are those the golden shields of the brave knights of Hightower?” Daniel yelled!
One of the men, dressed in golden armor stood up. “Yes, we are searching for a thief, a cruel man who stole and killed thirty women on our lands! But i can also recognize you. You are Daniel Black, son of Thorus Black and heir to the Darklands!”
Daniel nodded with his head. He was big for someone of his age, was only sixteen when father sent him to do his bidding. But he was not capable of dealing with the three golden men standing in front of him. “I know our kingdoms have had their differences, but it would mean a lot to me and my father if you could escort me to The Forgotten Lands!”
“And what does the Darklord want with those lands? Are you preparing some kind of new strategy. Let me warn you child of the dark, if you mess with the Sun, you get burned! If you attack Hightower every single one of you Darklords will burn!”
Daniel was not pleased with his answer. “Please , i cannot tell you what this is about, but i can promise you that if you help Lord Thorus he will make an alliance with The Tower of the Sun!”
The golden knights looked at each other! Their eyes were shining with the promise of legends and glory! “ An alliance between the Light and the Dark lands, would be something that this world has never heard of! Alright dark child lead the way! Where to next?”
Daniel smiled while he pointed to the map on their table: “Next, we are headed to The Drowned Lands, and we are going to get ourselves the most powerful ship ever built!”
