In the land of Torukia
Where words have fallen to become the sands
A proud stranger walks a proud road
A humble stranger walks a humble road
And between the two
The fog breaks over the flat land
And the song that cannot be heard destroys them
For generations the people of Torukia have passed this song on to their children, unsure of its meaning and origin.
But you, Hai Lang, are an ambassador from the Shoutou clans, a loose alliance of steppe dwelling horsemen. Until three years ago, your people had been warring with Torukia for centuries. Now, a tentative truce has calmed the land, and trade begins once more between the two powers. To ensure an agreement between King Liquan of Torukia and Song Hwa of the Shoutou alliance, you have come to the capital city of Perika to stay with the royal family. Fighting has broken out between the clans again, and you are almost glad to be away.
However, even Torukia is facing problems; King Liquan has died, suddenly, without any explanation. He has no heir. The people of Torukia fear that, in their leaderless state, they will be an easy target for the vengeful northern clans. You join in the speculation, wondering, as do the rest of the Torukians....How did it happen?
But then, after the king's funeral, his mother passes to you a journal recording the time the king spent as a captive of a Shoutou tribe...And suddenly, everything becomes clear.
Based on the song "Torukia" by Gabriela Robin and Kanno Yoko.

-Triggers for second scenario 35% finished
UPDATE: I SWEAR I'll start working on this again. My old computer (7 years old, bless her) died several months back, and things have been sort of hectic with me starting school again and moving to the new machine.
The story is really good, and I read all of it.. It's a good cutscene, except that it is VERY short, and stops at the point where it just started to get interesting. Anyhow, a good first submission, and I'm looking forward to the campaign.

I was thinking about making the cutscene a little longer, but I didn't want to give away too much of the story, as this is a teaser and not a summary :p Still, glad to see it still catches attention.
