A daring feat was accomplished by both you, a highly decorated general of the Wardarnian Alliance, and a young captain, by the name of Deric, in fending off a larger force of savage orcs. All of your men were killed but the two of you. You both head home. On the way you two are met by a messenger with orders from the Alliance Council that you two are ordered to go to Wardarna for a debrief of the battle. Grudgingly you two agree and watch the messenger ride off.
There are two ways of getting to Wardarna:
Go the Long way around the Dark Forrest of Arregentia
Go through the Dark Forrest of Arregentia
