Introduction: The Light at the End of the Curse
“For how long do you think you’ll be able to suppress that curse?” The Justicar looked at the Swordsmaster through her mask; what it concealed her voice tone put plainly: you are running out of time. He didn’t answer, he kept walking away with his back towards her and vanished in the night. She knew she’ll see him again but next time a warning might not be enough. Although she stayed for a while under the misty night an answer didn’t pop into her mind. Perhaps there was something that could be done, before it was too late.
The following day there was the same misty feel in the city. It seemed like the Sun hadn’t been able to wash away the darkness fully. The Justicar made her usual rounds but everything looked normal, until dusk. When the sky turned red and the Moon insinuated its round silhouette the Swordsmaster appeared again. Most of him, at least. The armour had devoured him in parts, consumed his body in non-lethal ways but definitely painful ones. He looked frenzied and unfocused. He staggered under the weight of a sacrifice that might’ve not been worthwhile.
There wasn’t much that the Justicar could do. Her impressive display of magic beat and battered the Swordsmaster but he always got up. It was obvious that there was little if nothing of the human she had seen before. Unable to defeat him she stopped him with a blinding light that ensured that the armour needed to draw more, ask for more, consume more from what was left of the body. After a few moments the light was so intense that the armour made a final effort to fight it and finally fell with a dull clank against the cobblestones. Now the question was where to hide this curse so that no other fool may be doomed, once again.
