>> The leading horseman pulls back his mask, revealing a handsome
>> clean-shaven, dark-haired man in his late 20s or early 30s. There
>> is a look of cold confidence about him. He does not seem cruel, but
>> he seems ready to dispatch any and all of the company if they
>> should prove to be enemies.
>> "Your words are brave, Sir Knight," he says, "but you have the
>> look of a man who has burned the candle too low. Beyond that you
>> have many injured here, so while I'm sure you would make a good
>> account of yourself, I think the battle would prove brief."
>> He then notices one of the crew of the boat that the company had
>> rescued. "That's one of ours." the knight says. "From the Coastal
>> Watch. How did you come by him? Speak quickly."
> Justin replies "I arrived in these lands yesterday, and spent part of
> the night in his town as a guest of one of the townsfolk. I helped fight
> off an attack by I still don't know what in the middle of the night.
> Then the Watch detected a distress signal, and I accompanied Captain
> Wright aboard one of the town's boats to investigate. That's when the
> Splugorth arrived, and sank the boat. These others were the ones who
> were sending the signal. Since then, we've been a bit busy just keeping
> our heads down and trying to get far enough away from the Splugorth to
> treat our wounded."
> Justin is mostly recovered from his collapse, at least physically,
> though mentally will require at least some sleep. He pulls himself to
> his feet, and helps Osiris up, assuming someone else hasn't yet.
> Justin says to the lead rider (the one who addressed the group) "My name
> is Justin Ichijo, of the line of Benedict, Baron of Coldpoint and
> Cyberknight. Who might you be, sir?"
The Knight leans forward in his saddle. "I can see there is a story, or
many stories here. At the very least, Captain Wright will be able to
account himself, and for the rest of you, when he is a little better. I
am Sir Peter Burton, Chief of the Rangers of Lostwithiel, under the
command of the Warden of Lostwithiel. And what of the rest of you. I
have little enough time, as youc an easily see, so what are your names?"
Osiris, leaning on Justin, replies in his turn. "I am Osiris Blake, a
Cyberknight from North America. I am sure the knights of Sir Camelot are
acquainted with us, my brethren having visited England on a number of
occasions, and have ridden with your knights during these visits."
