Well basic training is finally over and our squad has survived, now all we have to do is pass thier big test. The old man in the boat was right, this army is just what i was looking for. As soon as i heard about the kings guard though I knew I had to try out. Captain Aias is a bit of a dick but nothing will stop this squad. Each member has a part and they fill it nicely. Well time to hit the rack tomorrow the test begins.
Wow what a difference We have been sent out on the test, no PT no Drills its odd how a routine can become so familiar. Anyway We have to find an orb and return to the base in 4 days. Sounds simple enough but 2 squads never returned so at least it will be interesting.
We made good time today and are camped out near the road. Took a bit to get going though beauty and beast wanted horses. Apparently walking is for commoners. Well i should make a round my shift on guard duty is almost over and i thought i heard some rustling in the woods.
Ok those were some big freaking snakes. It was the first time our group fought together as a group and i think we did well. Luckily they struck at the end of the shift so i can go to sleep.
What an interesting day. We found the obelisk and the elmental symbols on each of the 4 sides. So we are fighting elementals, well once we found out. Pretty boy sven had a good idea to trigger the trap early by throwing a rock at the trigger, a shimmering wall at the end of the hall. First up was a Earth elemental it took forever but we took it down and busted him to rubble. Next up was a Water Elemental it was sneakier and wouldnt come out of its lair so we had to go get it. Living water is an interesting thing to fight. But our squad handled it quickly.
We rested in the main room for a few hours.
Well its finally over we fought a wind elemental next, then the fire elemental.
The fire one was tricky. I thought it was in its lair so i went in to investigate and suddenly i heard a loud rushing noise and screaming. It had some how snuck up behind us. I ran back to the main room but when i reached the hall that led there is when i saw it. And it came roaring down the hall at us. We were all singed at the end. But after some debating and experimentating we took a pebble and sand added water till it was a pasty then baked it over the fire and our orb was created. So now we are in woods once again heading back to base.
Hopefully no snakes find us this time.
What an interesting day, we made it back with no issues and have become kings guards!
I have the pin and uniform now. I feels to good to have made it through and the look on Aias’s face was priceless when we showed up early. Our squad has been forged into a fighting unit by the four elements. Looking forward to our missions together.
