Never come back... or I shall find you..." With
that, he brought the blade quickly up and
sheathed his sword. He turned and trotted away
into the darkness, leaving the chest, the slumped
body of Augustus and Theron in the street. It
wasn't until the horseman was long gone, and the
webbing dissipated before Theron noticed the
warm liquid trailing down the side of his face.
He instinctively reached for his cheek and felt a
long, deep gash. He never even felt the cut. He
surveyed the situation. The chest was still there.
But so was the horseman.... Out there.... He
turned and fled from the city of Mordheim, never
to return. "
" Augustus and Theron darted from building to
building, carrying with them a chest that they had
just stolen from the Dark Magister Xzyos. They
had quietly made their way into his private
chambers with the aid of information bartered for
a rather large sum of Gold Crowns, but the profit
they stood to make well outweighed the cost and
the risk of stealing the chest. Everything had
gone as planned, until they heard the jangle of
armour, they heavy footfalls of the war-horse, and
the shrieking metal on stone sound of a sword
being dragged across the ground. They turned
their heads in unison and almost dropped the
chest in fright. Before them sat a man clad in
brass coloured armour with a dark blue tunic
atop his black steed. He held in his arms a
massive, wickedly curved two-handed sword. His
glowing pale blue eyes transfixed on the two
thieves. He kicked his heels into the sides of his
mount and urged it into a leap. The he charged.
Theron and Augustus darted, fear consuming
them, they dropped the chest and sprung for their
lives. The horseman swung his blade out at
Augustus; it hummed with magic as it passed
through flesh and bone, severing his head. The
runes scribed across the blade glowed with a
crimson light where blood had coated the blade.
While Augustus' headless body slumped to the
ground, the horseman reared the horse and
brought it around towards Theron. He held both
blade and his gauntleted fist into the air and
chanted arcane words, bringing both down and
aiming them towards Theron, he completed his
spell. Sticky white webbing flew from his hand,
arcing widely towards Theron, encasing him in the
gluey substance. Theron fell to the floor. The
horseman slowly trotted to him, lowered his blade
even with Theron's throat and spoke in a voice
that would forever haunt Theron's nightmares,
chilling him to the bone, "Abandon this city...
