Back when the Royal Army was leaving the capital
Patrick travels through the woods on a running dragon, accompanied by
Corporal Mirko, Private Colton, and Sergeant Josh, an Inspector General. Sergeant
Josh is around 30 years old with a lean physique with a fringe of blonde hair
and blue eyes, around 180 cm tall (a little under 6 feet).
A major advantage to the running dragon is that it can move in the forest
quicker than a horse. It’s also near silent while it’s moving and it’s smarter
than a horse. On the other hand, it can’t carry the same weight as a horse and
it’s slower than a horse on a road. So it’s one person, with light armor at best, and
they aren’t going to be pulling a carriage or wagon.
The group is moving through the woods so they won’t be spotted.
“So, Second Lieutenant Patrick, what’s the strategy.” Mirko
“Pretty simple, I’ll sneak into the enemy’s camp and set fire to their food
stores, while you three stay hidden.” Pat
“Eh? No, you’ll just… Hmm? Well, it is the Second Lieutenant we’re talking
“Yes, I’m the only one that will be invading and setting the fire. You two will
act as the escort for the inspector general. If I fail for some unknown reason,
you three should run away and return to the Kingdom Army.” Pat
“If the Second Lieutenant is trying to stay hidden, I pity the enemy trying
to find him. I don’t think I would be up to the task.” Mirko
“Is he really so hard to find? I heard he was able to sneak behind orcs?” Josh
“That’s exactly what happened. Sometime I just hear him, but I can’t find him at all.” Mirko
“Am I really that bad?” Pat
“Absolutely!” Mirko & Colton
