The Lady´s Garden Stroll.

Captain Telain of the Royal Palace guard, looked out upon the sacred Forest of Galahir, the Lady had wanted to look at the forest of old, and what the abyss had caused to it, he had seen a tear run from her cheeks at all the destruction, that the horrors the abyss had done to the world
Telain knew that he was going to do his all to honour his titel as Honour Guard of the Green Lady and again see a smile on her face.......then suddenly, he saw the Lady simply turn to him, and say 3 simple words

Thy Are Here!

in a single motion the Elven army turned to meet the Orc Horde, decending on the forest.
