Through the use of their "warning bell" cannons, the Zaganos force has finally brought their blades to Muhl, the very throat of the Balt-Rhein Empire. With the fate of the Empire in the balance, the Hermann -- the group of younger nobility whose allegiances lie with the emperor -- plunge into battle. Awaiting relief from Lelederik's team of 4,000 heavy cavalry, they offer themselves as a lure on the battlefield. When the sun rises at the end of battle, who will reign supreme -- Torqye, or Balt-Rhein?!
