[[[BOOK THREE – NIC’S STORY]]]
[b]MAJORSCENE: THE KIDNAPPING[/B] (Expanded version of book 1 prologue.)
Nic gets kidnapped out of his own bed in the middle of the night. A small hint that someone on the inside let the kidnappers in!
[b]MAJORSCENE: THE CASTLE ESCAPE[/b]
Abandoned castle, lacks guards. Saws ropes off his hands with jagged rock, lures one guard in, attacks him, gets weapon, wounds but doesn’t kill other guard, runs for it! Chase scene!
[b]MAJORSCENE: HIDING AT THE CABIN[/b]
Two events in the forest on the way to coastal town where something almost kills Nic. Falling tree while he’s trying to hunt , flying weapon. In the forest on his way to the Coastal town… Nic could have met and ran in to Mr. and Mrs. Mors at their cabin, right after the first time something tries to kill him! It could be a small scene of them being rather helpful (him not mentioning he happens to be the prince, though they probably know anyway)… and leaving… Thus having a tie-in for them in Faith and Drake’s arc besides randomness.
[b]MAJORSCENE: THE SCORNED KNIGHT[/B]
Baldur a scorned knight shows up at the coastal town and it looks like he is the one trying to kill Nic. Nic blows him off and boards a ship back home. The sailors on the ship were hired to throw him overboard… and Baldur saves him! They wash up on the beach of the island.
[b]MAJORSCENE: MEETING HILDEGUNN[/b]
deserted town! But there they meet.. Truda Hildagunn the viking warrior woman! She’s there looking through the town by request of the princess! Mountain of a woman that obviously doesn’t belong there. And she doesn’t think they belong their either… so her first instinct is to attack and capture! something is said or noticed that makes someone pause though and realize they’re not enemies.
[B]MAJORSCENE: THE ISLAND REBELLION[/B]
So Truda takes them to the Rebel camp while explaining, she was looking for.. a book for the princess! It’s an antique tome but the language is so old there’s no way anyone there can read it. So, they have to sneak in to the library which is currently under the overlord’s control… and they meet Ederyn!
Ochahime: Who’s feeling fairly helpless. Even though he gave Truda the information she needed to get Arlea out of the castle, he hasn’t been able to help the king… but he does know what is needed to stop the dragonlord… but it seems impossible.
By now Nic is pretty invested in helping, especially seeing how so many poor helpless people are being displaced. He proposes a great plan of rescue.. And Baldur interjects that there’s no way he’s letting Nic run off and get killed before they can have their rematch, so he’ll be helping as well! Of course, and the Princess thinks it’s very nice of them but the boys better not think that her and Truda arn’t gonna being doing their part.
[b]MAJORSCENE: THE STRIKES[/b]
This is where they start with two or three smaller strikes… Reclaiming some very important parts of the island to be able to give back food and weapons to the people! Which is important, but really doesn’t solve the problem, specially when they find out their ‘victories’ was nothing but a ploy to be able to expose the princess. Not good when the princess is captured… Because then the Overlord plans to destroy her and the entire royal family in one big public display of power! That will crush the rebels for good!
[b]MAJORSCENE: THE PLAN[/B]
Truda being a barbarian wants to make for a straight attack but wiser minds pervail. This is where Nic shows he is ready to be King, as he displays great skill of planning and determination! It’s going to cut it down to the wire, but they have to mobilize the entire rebellion… even the people so they can stop the royals from being killed just at the nick of time and take the overlord by surprise!
[B]MAJOR SCENE: THE EXECUTION[/B]
— And the plan at first is going well till, um… something has to go wrong long enough to make it seem like they won’t win and then a twist so that the Dragonlord is unexpectedly killed. Um.. it looks like they were too late to save the princess from a horrible death, and there is much despair and anger-fighting… But it turns out she’s not dead and kills Dragonlord herself! And he dies with a ominous warning that HE was not the greatest evil to face… there’s something more… But All seems fine and happy for now!
[B]MAJORSCENES: THE FEAST AND THE FAMILY[/B]
— And then the king declares a feastday… and Baldur is all like ‘dual’ and that gives everyone the great idea about a joust and such. And it’s while all this is going on that Faith and company arrive on the island. And Nic is told he’s needed home.. especially for Serenity. And he admits, that yes… he is finally ready to take his parent’s place as ruler… and hopefully with princess Arlea as his bride? Arlea is all for that, but the King has an issue with it. Not with him becoming his daughter’s husband, which everyone is relieved about, but because she’s his only heir, there’s not even any cousins that could rule… lots of people dead after all. DianaNotacat: That proves to be a problem indeed! The next in line heir to Artolia is Serenity, and she’s still too young for rule! But.. he can’t make any choices without discussing it with his sister.. He has to return home!
Ochahime: And Arlea’s going with him, and if Arlea is going with him Truda’s going with her and if Truda’s going, Ederyn is going…
[B]MAJORSCENES: RETURN TO ARTOLIA[/B]
And thus, a whole lot of people show up in Artolia just in time for shit to hit the fan at the castle! Mildred had found out that Rivalen is the real prince… Reynard killed her to keep her quiet, and a few wicked plots are revealed!
