Eldrid was in a sour mood after leaving the slums, he hated the fact he was unable to do more.
[Don't keep beating yourself up over it, if you gave them mana stones it would cause them to be robbed.]
'It still makes my blood boil Dave.'
[Any person with a sense of righteousness would feel the same way.]
'Can you give me the location of the capitol cities teleporting pad?'
Eldrid materialized in the center of a dimly lit room, surrounded by guards.
"Papers please." a man said in a thick accent, which on earth would be considered a blend of Russian and German.
Eldrid took out the papers from the guild and showed him to the man.
"Sasha, please take this man to the dimensional gate." The man said before muttering something into Sasha's ear.
Sasha looked like a large barbarian, she was 6'6". dark gray eyes and hair and was wearing plain gray armor, and she had a giant blood red battle axe on her back. She had arms as thick as a mans leg, while her legs were as thick as a man's torso, and torso was a s big as a barrel. She looked similar to Zarya from Overwatch.
"This way. Keep up outsider." Sasha said with unconcealed contempt before leading Eldrid outside.
The sky was covered by green, black, and purple clouds. The city smelled of rotten flesh, blood, and filth. The streets were made of a glowing green stone, the buildings made of a material colored with the same purple as a bruise.
Countless zombies and skeletons were walking in the streets, most of the mindless ones were commanded not to attack people, and the sentient ones knew better.
However every single lich stared at him with eye sockets filled only with a intense green fire, as they sensed something withing him that defied their very existences. The crooks and scum of society also had the same feeling, and began looking at Eldrid with hostility.
Tensions were rising, each fighter had their hands on their receptive weapons, the mages had spells prepared, ready to shoot at Eldrid at any moment.
Eldrid was about to summon his righteous fire, but Sasha suddenly glared at the crowd.
"I hate his guts as much as you, but don't get in my way."
Hearing her saying this caused them to disperse, but not before each shooting one last glare at Eldrid.
[You're righteous fire is very harmful to most people in this city, so be careful.]
Sasha began leading Eldrid towards the king's palace, much to Eldrid's displeasure.
"I have been told that you the honor of being able see the king outsider, though I think this honor is beneath you."
"I have no interest nor desire to see your tyrant of a king, I only desire to hunt down the fugitive Leonard Welser."
"You damn outsider..." She spat venomously, while seething with rage.
"You're kingdom is full of the worst scum of humanity, you're people are starving. I have no reason to treat a king who permits this sort of thing within his borders with respect."
"The weak have to claw their way up and the strong rule. This is the law of our kingdom."
"THEN TO HELL WITH YOUR LAWS!!!"
"If the commander hadn't given me a direct order, I would have killed you already."
"Just take me to the portal so I can get out of here."
After several minutes of walking at a brisk pace they arrived at a bone white archway, in it was a portal black as onyx.
"Go through the portal, I can't stand the sight of outsiders, especially ones like you." Sasha said vehemently.
"Good riddance to you and your city." Eldrid replied before stepping through the portal.
---In the castle---
While the entire scene played out from Eldrid entering and leaving, another event was going on."
A skeleton like with a pitch black core where it's heart used to be was standing in front a vast army of undead. It was in pitch black robes, with golden trim, inlaid with many blood red crystals, and a dark mist emitting from underneath.
On it's head was a crown made of the teeth of vipers, and on the front was the symbol of a reaper, wielding dual sickle swords crossed over it's chest. It's eye sockets filled with a black flame.
"So at last, the time has come, the righteous flame has chosen a champion, the evil ice has selected an heir. Let the chaos ensue..."
