The dummy was cut down in one clean strike, bits of straw scattering. Behind it stands Wymar, an aspiring young adventurer under the training and protection of Reinald, a retired knight of King Jadiel. King Jadiel is the current ruler of Praedintea, a land of adventure and war. Jadiel resides in Lyonhall Fort, a castle located near the center of Praedintea.
Reinald: Your skills have been improving I see. Soon you'll be able to serve your country well.
Wymar: I'd think so, as we're running out of scarecrows.
Reinald: No need for pride. A sinful soldier won't make it through the first fight. Here, hand me your sword, it's starting to look dull. Rest in your quarters while I head down to the blacksmith to sharpen it.
Wymar: Best of luck, sir.
Reinald nods and heads off. With Reinald gone, Wymar returns to his quarters and sits down by his desk, moving it aside. Opening a newly revealed trapdoor, he pulls out a somewhat dusty book, swatting a spider on it.
