Prologue – Scene 1

Starts with the Captain surveiling the rebellion advancement from the battlements.

The wind blows from the city bringing the heat and smell of smoke.

The captain wishes he was at the front, even though he had full confidence the rebllion wouldn’t breach the barrier, he still misses the time where he was stationed at the frontal posts.

A messanger arrives soon, saying the bridge has been taken and the rebellion marches on.
That meant the barrier was taken down.

The messanger says the College (of Mages) had sided with the rebellion, not fully, but the vast majority of students and enough of the teachers to aid the rebellion in breaking the barrier.

A second messenger arrives, fron the castle, recalling the Captin to the king’s presence.
