Soaring White Dragon
The Convergence Series GM
The capitol of the Adrestian Empire was weary, and for good reason. With the last five years spent plunged into war, peace had only just recently arrived to the now-unified continent of Fodlan. Emperor Edelgard von Hresvelg had accomplished what she'd set out to do, and had been hard at work with her council on reconstruction efforts in order to fully establish peace in the new Empire.
But one day, out of nowhere, everything had changed. It was as if someone had snapped their fingers and turned Enbarr upside down. Citizens were missing, replaced by strangers. The once familiar city was now surrounded by strange forests and unfamiliar cities. And on top of it all, Emperor Edelgard and her council had vanished, leaving Enbarr, still reeling from the war, now leaderless. And as if that weren't enough, a surprise assault by mechanical foes caught everyone off guard, leaving the city in chaos.
But all of that changed one fateful day, when a stranger arrived. A mountain of a man with long white hair and a suit of red armor, it was almost as if he was the Edelgard of an alternate world. This mysterious hero rallied the remaining troops and put an end to the robotic menace, and was hailed a savior to this disorganized new world. When he revealed himself an emperor of his own land, it was practically unanimous that he should take Edelgard's place until she returned. Thus, this new Enbarr struggled to find peace in this massive upset, and had done rather well...at least, up until now.
Whether or not Kassandra had been in Enbarr the entire time, or had been in a neighboring area, word spread like wildfire. Enbarr had seen a sudden string of robberies, with no idea who could be behind it. Guards were bested again and again, and it had gotten so bad that the Emperor was now hiring any and all willing to solve it, with a handsome bounty placed over the head of the leader brought in dead or alive.
And today was the day he would be meeting with these hired hands, in his throne room. Outside of the palace stood guards, on order to not let anyone in unless they stated their business. It looked like one person was speaking with them now.
