Here it is:

When Navarre awoke he was in a dark room with many other wounded fellows. “He is coming round,” remarked someone. “Poor fellow, all of us are gonna have to fight for the Queen against our own countrymen,” said one “but at least we get decent food.” So Navarre stayed there till he had recovered enough to walk about the he was allowed on parole.

One day someone came in the morning and took him away. He was taken to one of the queen’s officers. “So,” grunted the man “Now I’m your officer!” “Areneas! What are you doing here!” questioned Navarre. “Um, nothing, except I could tell you that the queen took the castle and when we arrived there they caught some of us the rest fleeing to Aldermore tower.” “Well, anyway, what would you say to taking the first opportunity that offers to escape?” “Sure!” Areaneas replied in a low tone. However, despite the fact that they had total freedom both day and night, it was not going to be easy since the walls were strongly guarded by the queen’s most loyal soldiers. So they tried to gain the good will of some of these men by bribes and so forth but they were having very little success when something happened which changed their plans. One day Navarre and Areneas were wandering around the wall when after going down some steps they came to a door. “I didn’t know of this place!” remarked Areneas. “From its position on the wall I should say it was that house that juts out of the wall which we observed on looking down from the wall.” stated Navarre. They tried the door. It was locked so they knocked on it. “Seems unused at present,” said Areneas, “so it would be perfect to escape from! By the way I haven’t mentioned to you that one of the men captured with me can pick any lock.” “And that man we confided our plans to has some rope he has stashed up!” exclaimed William.

So after some planning they chose a dark night for the attempt. After picking the lock the three entered the building the other one was killing the guard directly above them for security. They peered down from the window into the darkness. “We should be able to jump onto the other side of the moat.” Said one of the trio. So letting the rope down they descended followed by the man who had dispatched the guard. Travelling quickly they soon reached the beach and launching a boat proceeding under Navarre’s guidance towards Garhiem, William’s aim being to rid himself of Guarmal and disguising himself as such, to take control of his troops so as to recapture his fortress from the queen.

Dual on the Icebergs!

As Navarre waited outside on the shore his friends beguiled John of Guarmal into coming. As they approached Navarre got behind his enemy and leaping forward exclaimed “I have a score to settle with you yet!” “Navarre! You will find me a hard nut to crack!” Navarre advance slowly towards the shore until there was no way out for Gaurmal. However a thought flashed through John’s mind and with a bound he leapt onto a passing iceberg, “So long!” But William, unencumbered by the armor Guarmal possessed, leapt with agility over the floating masses of ice, “Ha! It’s not over yet John, though you will soon wish it was!” Navarre’s ax swung towards him but John parried the blow. Fighting like demons they advanced rapidly towards the top of an iceberg. Both were bleeding from several cuts but Navarre pressed forward. Suddenly Guarmals sword flashed down and struck Navarre’s side but at the same time his ax came down with great force on John’s unguarded helmet and with a groan John slipped into the water. With a shout of triumph Navarre stood at the top but in a few seconds collapsed senseless from his wounds.

Here is the next part moph:

ImagePlaning and Ploting! by W. Navarre, on Flickr

As soon as Navarre recovered he and his men dragged John’s body on to the shore. As Navarre’s wish for vengeance had abated and he had accomplished his object he put a peasants dress on Guarmal and handed him over to the care of a nearby farmer. Then he dressed as Guarmal and going to John’s castle, with his brother disguised as himself, told the Commander of John’s troops that he had made an unlikely alliance with his former enemy Navarre to root out the queen’s men from the whole land as far as possible. “I myself shall travel to my home village and leave things in your and Navarre here’s charge. I depart at daybreak tomorrow.” Before then, however, they had a conference and it was agreed to leave everything in Navarre’s hand and the commander would lead the Garheims while Navarre’s generals would lead the outlaws. William after his ploy of leaving took off his disguise and returned to the castle. He speedily took charge of affairs and sent Areneas and Ralincler see what the queens plans were and to rally his men and return as soon as was possible. Meanwhile, he held a council with his generals, among whom were Keeler, Tardif, and Joshua his brother. The queen’s envoy who had just arrived was also to attend the Conference.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the next:

ImageThe Meeting! by W. Navarre, on Flickr

The next day Navarre and his Generals, with the exception of Areneas and Ralincler, met in a private chamber to conference with the Queens envoy. “The queen promises that should you join the dragons you will receive not only your own castle and estates but other more broad domains near your own and in Loreos. What say you?” “You know the queen is lying through her teeth or at least this fellow is!” blurted the Garheim representative (in name only, for though a Garheim he had been outlawed and joined Navarre long ago). “Besides the Queen is a broken reed to lean on, she will soon lose her last grip on the continents.” remarked Keeler.

“Sir!” Scowled the envoy, “These men know nothing! The queen was never closer to her goal then now!” “True, true, but that is only because she never was close at all!” A laugh went around as a greater frown appeared on the ambassador face. “It is all true!” he continued, “The queen is very merciful! She will return your castle to you immediately if-” Suddenly the door opened. Navarre stood up “Areneas! Why do you interrupt us? Is your news important?” “Yes. That man is lying! By now there is no castle of your to give you.” He paused. “Raltworth is completely leveled to the ground!” “Death to the queen and her envoy!” went up the shout as the men dragged the ambassador out the door. “But it’s not true! She’ll give you one much larger! She’ll giv-mph!”

“Now, what else?” asked Navarre. “As I said Raltworth is no more for the queen could not keep hold of it and needed more men up here in the north. As for the other business, we could only rally one hundred of your best men and the clans which some of us used to be a part of wished for your presence. They could furnish another hundred picked men as mercenaries at a low pay.” “Thank you!” replied Navarre, “Now that we know this we can make plans.” After some talk Navarre said,

“This is what we shall do men: I will travel down to the shade as quickly as possible and return with the clans while you men build three fast longboats. Then, we shall sail down to Grahnhaven and cruise along the coast there carrying fire and sword through the land to root out the queen giving battle to any reinforcements and provision coming by sea. Thereafter by sailing up doing the same thing we shall loop around at the Gulf of Fishes and sail down as far as Fort Quagmire.” “But then my lord we shall have to travel through the King’s water which right now is a very dangerous place and the Sea of Despair AND the Sea of Treachery! Do you not think it a bit much?” asked Williams brother Joshua. “Indeed I do not. Any more comments? Now I call this meeting to a close. Tomorrow I leave with Areneas.”
