Pact of Flame and Steel

Pact of Flame and Steel


The Great Hoards of Lair of the Dragon⠀⠀⠀

The Empire of Kantrias





Preamble

A knight in steel armor rushes into battle alongside his brothers and sisters-in-arms against the vile land of Ardenia. Metal clashes upon metal as the armed forces of Ardenia launch their desperate defense, their archers aiming upon the dragons that fill the crimson sky. Amidst the chaos the knight gets separated from his unit, the Ardenian soldiers swarming around him like pests.

Before he can take action a blur of golden scales rushes past. Four of the soldiers scream as they get crushed beneath the dragon’s sharpened claws. The dragon's gaze meets the knight yet no words need to be spoken. With ease the two eliminate the Ardenian forces that had endangered his life. “Dragon, lend me your strength! We must breach the city walls.” He shouts to the dragon with all his might, hoping he can gain its attention once more. “I shall lend you my wings, knight, together we shall put an end to these atrocious beasts!”

The two take to the skies, and with their alliance the first pair of dragonriders is born.
