The two men clicked and clacked along the cobblestone roads upon their horses until they at last reached the gates to the entrance of the city. As they made their way through, the sun appeared over the vast horizon and illuminated the rolling hills of farmland and prairie grass that stretched for as far as the eye could see. Twas the beginning of spring, and the abundant life, in the form of blooming vegetation, was a sight Gomerick had never witnessed. He was awestruck by the view, but with the light came the appearance of hundreds of camps seemingly spilt out from the city. They were set up by men of all classes leaving their homes in an attempt to win the king’s favor. Naturally, these men were accompanied by some simply seeking bloodshed, and others whom sought to take advantage of the dense gathering of men, their valuables, and lacking presence of guards.
