Cedric the Ursurper, Cedric the Conqueror, Cedric the Red.
Undisputed ruler of the Kingdom of the Lioncrown.
Insatiable in his hunger for power and conquest.
Ruthless, cruel, merciless.
A lifetime of warfare.
After his latest successful campaign he welcomes the wizard Glyax.
Cedric: "Let us drink to my victory! The Dragon Clans are crushed, so are the Falkons. These lands and their riches are now mine!"
Glyax: "It was a pleasure to play a small part in it, Cedric."
Cedric: "Pah, don't play the meek one! Having a wizard of the Rainbow Order always doubles the pleasure of war! Ah, how i miss the times
when i and Gundolf waged war side by side..."
Cedric: "Here is the promised payment Glyax."
Glyax: "A fair share, as always. My master will be pleased."
Cedric: "I bet good old Gundolf will be. He has always had a soft spot for jewelry hahaha!"
Glyax: "Thank you, mighty King. I want to depart as soon as possible. My... minions await me at the coast to bring me back to the fortress."
Cedric: "Alright then. Cynric! You will see to to safe passage of Glyax and the treasure.
Cynric: "Yes father!"
Glyax and Cynric prepare to leave while the cart is loaded.
Accompanied by Cynric and his soldiers, Glyax leaves Cedric's castle in the cart.
However, their departure does not go unnoticed. A scout watched everything.
Back in a hidden outpost the scout reports what he has seen.
Commander Vesperugo: "Glyax the Fiend! We shall attack that treck immedeatly!"
Druss: "But Commander, we only have a handful of soldiers here, none on of them on horeseback. Going in there is pure folly! Don't let your hunger for revenge darken your reasoning!"
Commander Vesperugo: "Reason? I have been beyond reason ever since Glyax imprisoned me... we will attack!"
Druss: "Sigh.. at least we should ask the Falkons for help."
Commander Vesperugo: "This will take too much time. No, we prepare an ambush right now. Besides, you know how they think about me."
Druss: "Alright, i will inform the men. ...and i will look after your back this time, never will i fail you again."
Commander Versperugo inspects the troops with which she wants to go after Glyax.
