Prologue

 

 

“General, we’ve got a prisoner.” The soldier forced the captured man to his knees. “What shall we do with him?”
    “Free him.”
    The prisoner was about to be freed but then the general unexpectedly changed his mind. “On the other hand…,” he said as he was about to step away. Blood spurted out of the prisoner’s neck as the general struck him down with his sharp katana.

    “General Mark, weren’t you going to fre—”
    The general fixed his gaze on the soldier. “I am Karm.” He strangled him from afar. “Don’t you question my will!”

    “I…am…s-sorry, General,” the soldier muttered, gasping for air.
    The general’s attitude and behaviour changed again, confusing the nearby soldiers. “Forgive me, I....” He regained his composure. “The battle is over. Dismissed.”

    The soldiers left, but the general still stood there facing the sky, his eyes closed. Raindrops fell on his eyelids and like tears slowly slid across his cheek, before dropping on the back of his black coat and snaking downwards, over that which represented his whole being: the black-and-red yin-yang symbol.
    General Mark, they called him, though that was not his only name.

    One moment he was Mark, another moment he was Karm, one good and forgiving, the other evil and merciless. That was his curse, to have multiple personalities that would switch when he least expected it.
    But at the same time that was what had allowed him to become one of the most renowned warriors in the land, adept in both the art of sword fighting and the use of the elements, and grant him the rank of general at the age of twenty-five, making him the youngest person ever to achieve such position. He was thirty-one now and had more than twelve years of experience in the field of battle behind. But no matter how grand is achievements were, no matter how many times he rose victorious, he was scorned by society, viewed as a monster, feared and hated by many, loved by none.

    He was an outcast.

One samurai to strike the enemy down,

Two samurai to protect our companions,

One samurai to carry home the fallen,

Two samurai to encourage the daunted,

One samurai to defend our nation,

One samurai with two souls to bring balance to this world.

My second novella, Mark & Karm, is out!

Blurb:


General Mark, they called him, though that was not his only name.

One moment he was Mark, another moment he was Karm, one good and forgiving, the other evil and merciless. That was his curse, to have multiple personalities that would switch when he least expected it.

But at the same time that was what had allowed him to become one of the most renowned warriors in the land, adept in both the art of sword fighting and the use of the elements, and grant him the rank of general at the age of twenty-five, making him the youngest person ever to achieve such position. He was thirty-one now and had more than twelve years of experience in the field of battle behind. But no matter how grand is achievements were, no matter how many times he rose victorious, he was scorned by society, viewed as a monster, feared and hated by many, loved by none.

He was an outcast.

IX

War Begins

 

 

 

 

“At long last.”
    An eagle screeched as it soared above the green uplands, a pair of demonic eyes watching its elegant movements.
    “Everything is ready, as you ordered, Great One.”

    The eredar turned, his red skin and hellish wings standing out against the blue sky. “The illusion spell has been successful, I presume.”
    “Of course, Lord Kil’jaeden.” The dreadlord bowed. “No one has sensed our presence.”

    “But they will now.” Kil’jaeden flashed a smile. “Have your inquiries been fruitful?”
    “Yes...yes. Both factions are substantially weaker, though they are still well capable of resisting us. The Scourge is but a fraction of what it once was. It will not stand against you, my lord, as Mal’ganis has already told you. The Forsaken on the other hand...”

    Kil’jaeden glared. “The elven queen has reigned long enough. Her city will be the first to fall.”
    “As you command, my lord.”

    “What about Kalimdor?”
    “Gorgonnash and the satyr are both eager to slay the Legion’s enemies. The pitlord has amassed an imposing army, while Xavius has garnered...precious information.”

    His piercing eyes shifted towards the dreadlord.
    “The Betrayer has returned.”

    The news pleased him. “Stormrage. I’ll make sure he pays for what he’s done.”
    “What shall we do about the naga queen, my lord? Her servants and the gods she serve may—”

    “Do not be fooled by what you see. She will not thwart our plans.” He strode forward, his hooves burning anything they stepped on.
    “What are your orders, my lord?” The dreadlord asked as his master stopped and stared at a massive crater in the distance.

    “I will not repeat Archimonde’s mistake. Burn, slay, destroy everything and everyone you see. Then and only then shall we claim the ancient powers of this world.”
    “As you command, my lord.” The dreadlord went his way.

    “Do not think I’ve forgotten about the failures of your kin, Mephistroth. I will not be as forgiving as in the past. Pray that you and Mal’ganis are successful.”
    “Yes, my lord.”

    “Undo the illusion spell. It is time.” And with that said Mephistroth left while Kil’jaeden breathed deeply. “This world has defied us for far too long.” He extended his hands and concentric rings formed around him. He muttered a spell in the demons’ language and runes formed in the dirt and grass. Then he opened his hand and a crackling green flame slowly enveloped it. He slapped the ground and the concentric circles became alive, their runes glowed brightly, and the sky exploded. At the same time the dreadlord dispelled the illusion spell and an endless demonic army began marching across the scorched uplands.
    “The invasion begins.”

Warcraft: Return of the Lich King - Chapter IX
This is a piece of fanfiction set in the Warcraft universe. No copyright infringement intended.

If you spot any mistake or inconsistency let me know.


Notes:

- If you spot any mistake or inconsistency let me know.

- The chapter is short and is only meant to give you a glimpse of what's happening outside Northrend and who is leading the Legion's armies on Azeroth.

- It takes place a few moments before both Mal'ganis and Bolvar see the infernals raining down.

- I wanted it to give off a Warcraft III vibe.

- This is also on fanfiction.net
