Episode Info: Inner Harsh Season 1 / Episode 11 Written by Lucas James Pralle Narrated by Larry Anderson     The Seven Blades They were seven of the best warriors, tasked by the king with a singular mission—get Luland to the royal tabernacle, and more importantly, get him in a position where he could stop Romoa. No one knew if Luland was up to the task. Romoa was four times Luland’s age and four times as practiced. Luland had demonstrated an aptitude for alchemic construction and other   relatively peaceful branches of alchemy, not war. To many in the Jadean ranks, he was still perceived as a child. Romoa was a starved dog of a man—mean, desperate, and wicked. His alchemic career had been under much scrutiny and criticism from the School of Alchemy. There was no peace with Romoa, just war.

A plan was formulated. The Seven Blades would make its way through the dark, spindly brush of Badean’s Moor on one of the flanks, hopefully undetected, and hopefully with enough strength at the end of it to challenge Romoa. The black brush was so thick in that area that it was impenetrable to any regular man on foot, but that meant that it was also too thick for Romoa’s horrendous creatures to penetrate. A skilled alchemist versed in alchemic construction, in theory, could make his way. It was a daring move. If the Jadean alchemist was captured or killed, the King would not only lose the battle, but he would undoubtedly lose his castle. A castle needed their alchemist, and they were not easily replaced.
