Subject  sounds in the rain

the rain made a plinking noise as it bounced off the knights helm, he knew it
would be this way for many days to come he watched as the two young defenders
of the crown push the gates shut and barred them this was the last one to
oversee someone else should really be here for this duty but he felt the need
to oversee it personally since any reprecussions from the deed would be his
responsibility the letters had been sent to the lords of all major solamnic
cities to do the same and the call for brave knights had gone forth he looked
at the sky and knew that rain was a blessing of the gods but he was still
unsure of it's use in battle, mud had unseated many a knight from his steed
not that it would trouble him he gazed over at his mount, beautiful despite or
perhaps because of the rain the large silver gleamed shined in even this
dismal weather mounting her back he flew to the solamnic keep alighting attop
a battlement and moving twards his map room, the time for war was upon us the
die for death.... perhaps even his own.....

Subject  the best laid plans

The rain continued to fall perhaps it was a sign of the gods disfavor, perhaps
it was just the way things were, but it disturbed him.

He wished things could move in a more orderly fashion and he felt a sharp
sting of disapointment at the things that didn't move as they should, the
weather recieved his ire because it was the most ever present symbol of that.

he glanced down at the practice field and watched his Knights preparing for
battle and began to wonder how many of them would meet thier end, which ones
would survive and perhaps some day stand here where he was now.

He glanced at his aide and nodded deciding to accept that things sometimes 
are the way they are and if you want something different you draw your sword
and get to work on it.... not that every sword was made of steel but it seemed
every decision was a new battle, a new trouble for all to be involved in, what
else can we do but hold true to our ideals and set forth to accomplish our

as he again watched below he saw the aide give word to the captain on the
ground who ordered the knights to mount up and prepare to move out, The Lord
turned and mounted the dragon easily sliding onto its back and into the
familiar saddle he knew he was preparing for what could be his last battle,
what could be in fact the end of the order, there were not so many knights
left these days, it seemed as if people valued things besides honor and
justice, loyalty and obedience but if the knighthood was to die it would end
on its feet rather than its knees
