A World In Chaos
A simple soldier looked over the filed of battle with tears flowing from his eyes. Lines streaked down his face through the blood and grime which covered it. There was so much devastation around him that it could be nothing but a twisted nightmare. The carnage was unfathomable to someone who just days prior had lived in a prosperous and peaceful city.
Ividia’s fall was just as sudden as its rise. Once an average sized village, its population exploded when an untapped series of quarries was found in the vicinity. New settlers swarmed the town in search of newfound wealth and opportunity. Quickly Ividia grew into a full fledged city. Yet the quick ascension to wealth caused many who lived there to become overly arrogant. That trait was especially common among the city’s leadership.
So when the giants marched towards the city, those in charge of Ividia scoffed. Never would they be able to pierce the defences, they thought. It wasn’t until the first boulder crashed against the walls of Ividia that they truly understood what they were up against. By that time it was far too late. In just a day the city was sacked.
