“So, we side with the rebels, lead by a former peasant and soldier, or we side with the corrupt governor in suppressing them?” asked Voddick, looking out over the gathering sides.
“Or we can just leave,” said Gollaon.
Voddick snorted. “As though you would abandon a heroic underdog.”
“And just as you know if we flee we will be chased by both sides no matter who wins.”
Voddick sighed and loosened his sword in its scabbard and picked up his crossbow. “Best get a good place before it comes to blows. You know I hate arriving late at a battle.”
“Right you are.”
Sword of the Dashing King
This long sword is a practical weapon, unadorned and having seen hard use, but the grip is usually wrapped in bright leather with a colorful tassel once it has been used for a while. Unless it is being used, there is very little about it to indicate its legendary nature and if found after having been long lost even the colorful wrapping and tassel are likely to have faded.
