`After a few months of training with the hunters, one day we where forced to go further from the village than ever before by a sudden landslide. After the landslide we found ourselves in a warm valley, unknown to me, where we could see spots of dry grass and flowers blooming amidst the snow. Karspart seemed nervous just like the other hunters, which I have never seen before. We stopped abruptly and all the hunters around me loaded an arrow into their bows while Karspart took out his sword. Karspart whispered to me to stay alert because the last time they came here the valley had belonged to an outpost from Nocturnus. We stayed in this position for what seemed like an hour, fearing the worst. We heard nothing that alarmed us and Karspart gave a sign that we should get closer to what seemed to be a building in the middle of the valley. As we stepped forward we looked for any movement or any sound that could be dangerous. And as we went closer we saw more and more that the structure was broken and swords and shields lay scattered around covered with snow. We still did not dare to lower our guard because we knew it could be a trap. We searched the ruins thoroughly, but we found no sign of life. The whole thing seemed to be abandoned. But why? Late in the evening we finally returned to our village unharmed.
None of the hunters spoke about it and I did not want to say it out loud, but I think that the war is over. But if so, how long ago did it end? `
I had a very busy year with not much time to build or post, so as a consequence this build is a year old. I hope I will be able to build more this year and keep improving (because I am not really happy with the end result of this build)!
This is the first time I tried to edit the photo's.
