Wisdom from the Water

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Wisdom from the Water

Post by Arkbrik » Sat Feb 22, 2020 10:32 am

After the death of King Auris in a recent battle, Lady Leonora seeks guidance for the Knights of the Square Table. With the aid of Marvin the Magician, she has found the mystical Lake of Wisdom.

"Ask the lake, and it will answer", Marvin says.

Image

"Lake of Wisdom! Will the Knights of the Square Table survive without our King? How are we meant to carry on?"

Image

A figure rises from the water.

Image

"Well met, Leonora. It is good to see you again."

"Dracus?! But... you fell, in the battle where the King was slain!"

"Aye. But I have been sent back, to deliver a message: When the Knights of the Square Table face their darkest hour, King Auris will return to lead them once more."

"Our darkest hour..."

Image

KRAKOOM!

"What?!"

Image

It's a tank from the Ayanami Empire!

Image

Infantry is moving in as well.

Image

"Leonora, we are done here! Let us retreat!"

"Not yet!"

Image

"Lake, tell me more! What is the darkest hour? When will it come?"

Image

A vision appears in the water.

"Discs? They resemble that mysterious disc the Acquiriens stole..."

Image

"Ah!" Marvin shouts. "I can see it... the path to the discs... Our next quest is clear to me!"

Image

"Good! Let's not waste any more time here, then!"

Image

Image

"The area is secure, Captain Iwanaga."

"Good work. Now we can get the intel we came here for."

"Sir, I must say... should we really be using such an esoteric method of gathering intelligence? I'm not sure the Reiliph would - "

Image

"The Reiliph trusts my judgement. Besides, if the rumors I've heard are correct, there's a situation brewing that could destabilize the faith and threaten the Empire... The ends justify the means. Now then. Lake, tell me! How can I protect the Reiist faith and the Ayanami Empire?"

Image

"Hmm? Who's that? Some kid?"

Image

"Huh? I'm getting a transmission from... the lake? It's a log of four energy signatures. And a set of coordinates!"

Image

"Perfect. Then we know where to go."

Daring words.

Also, loved this little scene. I want those discs now.
