The baron had had a pleasant morning, seeing as how he had awoken next to his smart and beautiful wife, had a delicious meal of chicken and fruits that would be a holiday feast for a full family in the town he had under his rule. So, imagine how much it spoiled his good mood and cheer of a lovely day that had been started, when a man, who was speaking absolute gibberish, was dragged in to his throne room by his guards, and had revealed to him the treachery that would repay the kindness he had given to the royal family of the Dutchards by way of many soldiers and weapons. “What is this, which is being dragged into my court chambers?” asked the baron. “Sir, it is a foot-soldier of the Dutchards, and he is carrying plans of attack against the Augustine’s after the Vlasire’s have been dealt with.” replied the guard captain who had dragged in the gibbering lunatic. “Any idea why a man like this would be carrying such important plans?” asked the baron, who had been more observant than he had looked, considering how he had looked more like a particularly rotund jester dressed in fancy garbs. “We think that the man had been bitten by a rabid animal whilst in the forest. He may have been a messenger meaning to relay the plans sir.” answered the calculating guard. If the plans were to be believed, then that would mean that King Augustine would have to know that his men were most likely being used as cannon fodder to weaken his forces to make a takeover easier once king Vlasire had been dethroned. “Send our fastest messenger to his highness king Augustine informing him of the plans. Also, send orders to all of our commanders to be wary of the men they are fighting with, this may also be a trick, though it does seem to fit the type of plans that that bastard Dutchard would have for us once we have removed Vlasire.” ordered the baron. “Then it will be done sir.” replied the guard. “One more thing sir, what of the man we bring? He is obviously of no help information-wise except for what he brings on him.” Asked the guard. “Hang him, if he is indeed working for a traitor, he deserves nothing other than an execution, if he is an innocent in a trick, his death will be a mercy instead of having him live as a madman.” answered the baron, who had obviously deserved his seat of power due to his decision making skills and leadership, and not just because he had been born to the right family.
