A Sport for Bored Soldiers
In a cold land, governed by war, there existed a strange tradition that captivated the people living in there. When two countries go to war with each other, and before their armies clash in battle, a special kind of event must occur first. Each army must send out its best three soldiers to fight the other three in a duel of death. The duels, whither won or lost, gave no tactical advantage in battle, but it gave the soldiers something to enjoy in that depressing time of war. It became a sport, where the participants, the knights, seek glory, money, and fame.
Sam Rain, a lonely orphan boy who was captivated by the duels, set his dream to become a knight, and began his quest to become one. Never did he know, that sometimes dreams, turn into nightmares.
