~ Excerpt ~
* Matthias and Luras stood on the deck of the Lisbeth, watching the arrows announce their arrival. Nelos and Tylin stood nearby speaking with Captain Dowr. Matthias wore his leather vest with steel ringlets over a maroon woolen tunic. His yellow hair and beard were wet from the breeze. He checked his armor and weapons. He had a sword and a shield. The shield was round and made of reinforced planked wood with an iron center. A short sword and dagger hung from his waist. Luras wore his black leather tunic with steel ringlets and brown leather pants. The hood of his dark green cloak was pushed back. His two sabers were sheathed across his back.
* “Are you ready?” asked Matthias.
* “Yes. How is your back?”
* “Better. Nelos did a good job.”
* “Good,” replied Luras.
* “It will be chaos soon … when we reach the island,” said Matthias.
* “I suspect as much.”
* “Stay close. There will be a push to move forward. It sometimes fails and falls back. Make sure you are not too far forward. Men often find themselves closed in, isolated. They get lost in the fight and find themselves surrounded. Know where you are and where others plan to be. If we stay close and keep our wits, we will live and make it to the ruins,” said Matthias.
* “Good luck to you,” said Captain Dowr, as he approached them.
* “And to you,” replied Matthias.
* “I will be here; you will be there. You can have my luck. You'll need it,” said Captain Dowr, grinning.
