THE PLANE OF ORDOSE

STHORN LIGHT CASTLE

AGATHA’S TOWER CHAMBER

King Elias stands alone in Agatha’s Tower Chamber, casting his gaze out the window.

KNOCK! KNOCK!

Suddenly Prince Morr enters the chamber, the door already being open, he knocks upon it as he does.

“May I come in My Lord?” he asks.

King Elias’s sad brown eyes continue to gaze outward as he replies.

“Of course Morr… Enter”

Prince Morr stands beside the king.

“It’s as we feared my lord, Hemmingbyrd drugged the four Sthorn Guards, putting them to sleep… And not knowing what else they should do, they have returned home to the castle,” explained Morr.

With this Elias smiles slightly “Hemmingbyrd will be alright… It’s rare that he listens to anything anyone else has to say anyway,” explains the king.

Prince Morr nods in acknowledgement.

“There is something else my lord,” speaks Prince Morr, which causes King Elias to look over at him.

ILIAD’S TOWER CHAMBER

King Elias stands with Prince Morr, and two of the Sthorn Guards that had been watching the chamber after finding, what they had found.

In front of them is a six foot in diameter, glowing ball of blue fire, light and lightning.

CRACKOOM! cracks the thunder from within it as it stirs.

Upon seeing this King Elias’s face is aglow.

“A portal, like the one that brought Agatha to us!” speaks Elias in elation.

“I believe so my lord… Could it be?” Prince Morr inquires.

Suddenly King Elias’s face gets a bit darker.

“If Hemmingbyrd has left an open portal here, there must be a reason for it…” explains the king.

He looks at Morr and puts one hand on his shoulder.

“I want you to send Captain Riotch, and 10 of your best men to the halfway point between here, and the Crags of Wardonby,” explains the king.

“Yes my lord” replies Morr bowing slightly.

“Though he did not want our knights with him, I still fear something unsavory is afoot” finishes the king, as he briskly leaves the chamber.
