The Fallen Flag

Defeated at last

A fallen dishonored flag

Natives take the land

Foreign rulers leave

While dragging their flag in shame

Their ships take them home

Allies are honored

As civilizations merge

Different is one

Peace erased the past

Foreign and native combined

They create a whole

The Valorous Warrior

There was once a time when men spoke of justice, however this is not that time. This is a time of perpetual war, a time for the wolves to feed and lions to breed. And so our story shall begin with one fierce leader and one lonely lad.

He stared in awe at her frightful valor, and stood from afar in a bewildered manner. Closer and closer they approached the gates, like determined hunters they would wait. The night was long, but their cause was strong. With first light, they began their fight. Clanging swords, bloody grounds, fallen men, again and again, but in the end the fight was won. A just defeat, if there was ever one.  She stood victorious beyond the gates, then turned to the palace to deliver their fates.
