Chapter 11

Nykyr gazed down at the blade protruding from his chest, his stony expression slowly shifting to a skull-like grin. He slashed his scimitar to the inside in a high arc, as he clasped his foe’s weapon arm with his left hand. He blade flashed through the air, severing the deathknight’s arm. He continued his arcing motion, bringing his blade around to sever the thing’s head from it’s shoulders. He yanked the sword from his own bosom, and set off for the gate, just behind Roberts and the rest of his friends…
