The two guards lower there weapons dissapointed at the lack of running that the two new adventurers weren't doing. so they say to you "we can take you to arslakei our leader" they share grins and call for the other guards to help the adventurers to 'dismount.'
You know that ersistance is useless so you are gruffly taken by the arms of the ruffians and are dragged to what was the imperial palce but now half of the domed roof is torn away and the exterior is just as battered with some bricks missing in places.
As you are dragged into the 'palace' you are taken before the high throne and one of the ruffians whispers to you "kneel." as you bend your knee or a forced to bend your knee arslakei looks over you and says "why have you been brought before me?"
The man or rather lord you are stood in front oof is a giant he must be well over 8ft and watching the way he moves you can see his left leg is not what it used to be, well it is wooden. You can see why this man is a corsair and a leading one at that i doubt even some of the most gallant heroes in the land would purposefully go after this hardened bunch of what seemed not merely a ship of pirates but instead a fleet. There were hundreds of Men not to mention the flauntily dressed women which seemed to be at every mans side. this was a horde of corsairs.
"You wish to know why i Invaded Amn well it wasn't just me, look at these bumbling lot these are our politicians at it were our leaders i am just there puppet" For a man in very poorly fitted clothes the man spoke with a poshness in his voice as if he had been taught from young although this voice commanded respect it also gave its fair share of discipline.
"You might say one of the reasons for us invading is because we sailors want to get rid of oars and be landlovers like ya self." money of the others in this 'palace' laughed at this and that is when everything went blank for you. From then on you everything was a blur.
"Hehe you be awoken then hahaha i am svi a gnome you fools were laying in the outskirts of the forest, hic, Hehe why you be there then hahahehe." the gnome who stands in front of you seems almost minescule compared to the corsair you had seen previously.
the gnome leads you back to an outpost of what looks like rebels although a motley crew they look hardy enough. One calls to you "Svi, what have you bought to the forest of amn?"
"two travellers i guess we could call them although they do carry weapons"
The camp set out before you was a place of tranquility despite the weapons that were discarded about the place many of the weapons looked like those used by the corsairs although the camp was small it was set up to move quickly and looked defendable from every angle and there were tall make shift outposts at every corner of the camp and there were some 50 warriors within the camp whether they were on the outpost or in the camp. A man steped forward who appeared tobe the leader "hi there, we are the rebels and survivors of Amn we grant you guest rights and i am Arslan and what are your names?"
"Greeting, My name is Koshie and I'm afraid that I'm am the one who lead the invasion into the unclaimed lands and to the cost of the inner sea. Unfortunitly I believe that I might be the one responsible for the destruction of Amn."
