Light filtered between the clouds above, heavy with their moisture, and lingering slowly in the blue sky. Daybreak had just begun as the gates of Volos began to open as the creaking of the door echoed through the empty streets. Click click click Thunk! The doors hit their end causing the loud sound to echo through the silence as if the bell of the town had run. Behind the castle, a loud roar sounded, and just like clockwork, the doors of the homes below opened and peasants began to funnel to work.
Volos was a rather busy town, it always had new merchants setting up in merchant circe. On Top of that, it was a high population kingdom to begin with, since everyone was allowed in with little prejudice. The chatter of the townspeople rose as it slowly made the sounds of the kingdom lively and cherry. People went to work, the shops around town opened their doors and began to open shop. People went about their daily routines. All was well in the kingdom of Volos.
Though it acted like any other day, today was special, the gates to the noble quarters swung open as banners seemed to spring up out of no where. Today was the day of the dragon knight certification test. Those with marks of dragons and those looking to receive marks would travel far and wide to get here today. Those who had neither may come to watch in the stands out of interest, or possibly ill intent. It’s common for hunters to sneak their way in to check out the competition. It is said some of the participants of this test normally come in a disguise hoping to not be targeted, while others are more than ready for the fight.
The examination will begin in 30 minutes. The top knights will gather above in the kings podium which spans 15 feet wide and will have more than enough seating for the four knights. Below in the main area, stands a woman with short white hair. Her golden gaze peers off towards the entrance gate. By her stance and her overall presence within the arena it’s obvious she is the instructor.
