The First Toll

The brief ambience that presented itself to the Province of Rubern was soon broken; the bells toiled. Men and soldiers alike mulled from within their dwellings to muster at the front-gate - just by the gallows. The sight set before them was akin to one you would of saw within the confines of Helena during the War of the Two Emperors.

 

A man stood ‘pon the gallows with a rope tied around his neck, ready to be hung or otherwise executed in full sight of everyone. However, during this war it had become the men of Rubern that grew accustomed to this nature, for war was bloodthirsty and Orenian bodies had littered their streets and surroundings for the entirety of it.

 

The voice of Flemius spoke out amongst the crowd,

 

This is a Vyronov, a nobleman of the Haense; he has put himself against us in war - and he will suffer the consequences of that. These Haensemen have killed our brother and friend, Brutus, and for that they shall pay. Let this be the first toll!” 

 

The crowd jeered, the Vyronov went silent and the lever was pulled. One crack of the neck later and dangling before them all was a dead man. As the corpse was taken down, his head was smashed, as Brutus’ was. 

 

His corpse was taken down afterwards, however, it would not be burnt like the body of [Certain Imperial Monarch]. Instead, a letter was sent to Haense, demanding the release of Brutus’ remains, in return for Isaak Ulric Vyronov’s.

Alaric would dip his head, giving a brief word to the father. “May this coward of an Emperor admit his ineptitude soon so we may end this violence. His people need not die for his shortcomings.”
