Title: To the Victor Goes Oblivion
"The battle lasted 5 days. 5 days of blood, 5 days of fear, 5 days of carnage. All for the sake of 5 brothers fighting for the throne of their father, the Emperor, who was the 5th of his Dynastic Line. The Lord that was leading your army has succumbed to the bloody dysentery that ravaged your fellows the day after the final sword strokes fell on the last army to oppose you. The field is strewn with the dead as far as the eye can see; their faces frozen in the light of the blood moon. Ahead of you, the gates of the Imperial City, Asham Sharrak, lie open; breached by you and your brothers and sisters at arms shortly before the illness claimed them."
The Captain puts down his quill and shows his work to the scowling Kleshite peering over his shoulder.
"Aye, those are words... Written by a useless tit of a leader trying to get the few of us left in Gold Hand's Company to throw ourselves into the meat-grinder one last time," noted the Kleshite scornfully.
To this the Captain merely nodded.
"Gold Hand herself, for all of her fine words and promises of wealth to be found far from the shit-covered streets of Lankhmar, bled and shat herself to death along with the rest of the so-called soldiers from this land. This formerly lost land in which we are now actually lost, thanks to you."
The Captain nodded again.
"Captain, we have naught to show for our campaign but the weapons we hold, the armor on our backs, and a right powerful stench of blood and shit over it all."
To this the Captain wrinkled his nose slightly and nodded in agreement.
"Many of us may have faced the gallows in Lankhmar, but that would have been a far cleaner death than whatever awaits us within Asham Sharrak. You shall have us march through the gates, in accordance with some utterly delusional and incompetent plan which will succeed in doing the one thing that you are good at: getting your troops killed. No offense intended of course, Captain."
The Captain sighed before he spoke.
"So I take it that you don't like what I wrote?"
