King Torumon exited his tent just behind his generals. He was walking with the confidence of a man with a plan. A plan he knew would succeed. The generals led him up the slope of a low hill so they could survey the town before him. The town of Korul that lay below him was on the coast of the Orumantic Ocean in the country of Lygeniana on the northwest corner of Eca. The small town looked peaceful from a distance, but Torumon could tell this was a town prepared for battle. None of the chimneys had smoke coming from them, and after last night's frost, he suspected it may be because the citizens have been evacuated, leaving only the fighters and the fit behind.
"We attack in two hours." He turned to one of the officers behind him. "Tell the other officers to be ready. We hit hard and fast. You know what to do."
"Sire," the man snapped to attention then quickly spun on his heels. As he sprinted away, Torumon smiled to himself as he heard shouting in the distance; "We attack at noon!"
Oh geez, oh geez. I know that I can keep going after the buzzer, but I happened to accomplish exactly what I wanted to do with only 7 seconds to spare!
I will be stopping the scene here, though because I just made a lot of work for myself. King Torumon is the former elven king of Totiva. Totiva is a large, peaceful country in the northwest of Eca, the continent on which my stories and TTRPGs take place. Lygeniana, at one point, was Totivian territory but broke away in years past. Now, Lygeniana is facing a rebellion and the king of Lygeniana has asked for King Torumon's assistance in regaining control of his realm. The rebellion is squashed in the small town of Korul later that day, and the rebels are sent to work in a new mine being built. A mine that later would provide Lygeniana with enough gold to be one of the most wealthy countries on the planet. I will continue more worldbuilding in my personal time.
