Chapter 1

Prelude: Fight for Life

Draw your sword! So unsheathing his blade, Darwick reveals his weapon of choice. And what blade would I expect other than his signature sword – the salamander: a weapon so dark in it’s power, it’s spoken of being powered by the flame at the core of this world known as, Currensole. Whipping it side to side barley missing his body tunic, the bond between them lights up signifying complete alliance with ones blade. So he steps back drawing the beaming sword so that it touches the ground behind him, now ready in defensive position.

Though others had come before us, this battle decided the fate of the guild, I must destroy Darwick, therefor disabling his crew of assembled swordsman. Without a leader they would be forced to hand over their resources. It was of no coincidence, these swordsman also played as partners in some of the most productive land and corrupt villages. A deal had been agreed to gain some of these resources and to gain possession of farm land. This was essential to our survival as a guild, our lands had reached the last of their days, lacking protection and sufficient seedlings. Now we must resort to this level of risk. See on the other hand if I lose this battle… All worker units would be theirs, and our prized soul gem would be stripped from our grasp. Leaving us with nothing but our own.. Most would say this trade is reckless, an act of impatience and greed! Much to the fact that this matter was kept to a quiet and dealt with by our supreme council of sonic knights. So then I must win, for my country, for my people, FOR THE GUILD!

As I charge forward my steel blade switches out, in a fluorescent blue color, made of titanium. It pumps out power surges of electric and what our guild is built upon, sonic power… *VVV-WUM* … *VVV-WUM* I test the power of my sword by slashing it downwards in a X shape, this causes a static wave of sonic to splash out onto the barren earth beneath us. And forward I go as I lock eyes with my target, now bringing my blade up, I gather hop into the air, gliding higher and higher, about to reach the peak of the jump and for a moment it all seems to stop.

I can feel the gentle wind as it whispers to me, slightly blowing my brown, wispy hair. It’s grown quite long now, as I realize part of my ears are protected by the natural curve. I think to myself, if this had been any other day I would be getting this annoying flop of a fringe out of my field of view. “Wait a minute.” I think to myself ” “I should be finishing this duel shouldn’t I?” A small leaf like shape floats down, barely resting on my shoulder. “From this height, where could a leaf have fallen from?” But before I know it, time instantly resumes…

I draw the blade to it’s highest point and then dive towards Darwick with all my power. I squeeze the handle intensely, charging the sonic power and aiming so carefully. I squint from the light this super weapon produces. Simultaneously my competitor had been charging his blade, I know this as it has now come to it’s fullest point, showing a glowing, orange burn in the center of the hilt. Although something doesn’t seem quite right, though the glow in the hilt of the sword burns brighter than before, his blade remains a hard silver, I remain cautious of this, though not letting any of my preconceptions reduce the power of my attack. Finally, I tighten with the rest of my grip and swing downwards, the contact between steel causes the front of my blade to explode but maintaining contact with the salamander of Darwick. Now with his sword held by one hand in front of his face. His sword sends a pulp of energy through to mine, but has no effect… As my sword pumps out 5 continuous surges of sonic which – breaks through… On the 4th surge salamander crumples, on the 5th it gives way, falling to the dirt. My blade then continues through, hitting Darwick’s chest armor hard, electric surrounds the chest piece and breaks the protection it once provided. Thoughts begin rushing into my mind, I start thinking of all we could do with new resources and land and how we could survive the drought. I think of the happiness I will bring to my fellow councilors and all the people of our guild. Honor, will be restored…

Then as Darwick’s chain mail starts to rip I feel a pinch in my leg. “Ah my frequent muscle cramps, they deserve no thought at this moment!” I bring my mind quickly back to the pinging of chain popping everywhere. Then a sudden shock fills my lower left leg, bringing much more pain then usual, in fact it’s getting worse, and worse… My limb feels like steel razors are biting into it. I release my grip on the saber, and I look down. Darwick takes this opportunity now to take a step towards me, slightly grinning as he slams the other half of his blade (one with the power core still intact), deeper into my wound. The pain overcomes me, the glare of the hilt blasts my eyes, and I cannot see beyond my own legs and part of Darwick’s figure. He coughs blood from the damage, deep cuts to his face and neck, most likely from the shrapnel of armor and chain, that I eagerly tore apart. But salamander’s grip had done it’s job… now fully attached to bone and sending jolts up to my heart, light becomes dark and I slowly lose consciousness…
