To those that follow, or find this beside a corpse...
It is most likely my own corpse. But if not, then it is a thief and he deserved it.
Even if the leather is red it will not confirm anything, as both myself and those that seek my end wear the same red armor.
They call me deserter and traitor...
I call them villains and monsters.
More than anything I seek to itemize those flawed beliefs that are the result of their indoctrination, to separate them from those that are due to my own failings as a human.
Somehow, my own flaws are easier to bear.

It may at first have appeared that Eddrick had to actually weigh the option of joining forces with the Imperial Army, as his eyes were squinting at some event in the past. But the words soon registered and the effect was profound.

The bandit Chieftain took a clumsy step back, reeling with the ramifications of the offer. He mouthed silent stammers for a few ticks before collecting himself, and dropping to his knees with bowed head. "Your Majesty, your generosity is beyond words. How could I be such a fool as to reject such an offer; one that even extends such leniency as to allow my men and I to retain independence after having fought against your forces? Yes, I do indeed wish to fully join your forces. It is only if it serves some strategy that the Rhakriis would fail to show your colors."

He stood, some embarrassment showing on his face as he elaborated, "Many of us already wear Imperial gear, though it was hard won. We have a variety of makes and colors in our ranks, of course, but would certainly do whatever you would require to mark our alignment."

He appeared briefly at a loss for what to do with his hands, "I don't know exactly what gesture I make to show acceptance. I uh...don't use a sword in battle; and though that seems the most common symbol of loyalty in the rituals of which I have heard tell, I can only offer the hilt of my ball and chain."

The bandit stood as if he feared it all may have still turned out to be a dream, prepared to make whatever gesture was commanded of him. Before this occurred, however, one of the other commanders asked him what he had been thinking of a moment ago; that it had clearly been of some significance. His expression become a blend of doubt and hope.

"Well, the wagon in which I was being taken here, after the Claypan battle, was attacked by some of the risen dead, and the horses panicked and bolted. Eventually the harness tree snapped and the wagon rolled to a stop in the sand. The dead caught up quickly, but I was actually protected inside, though I figured it would really only mean a slow death of thirst instead. But many of the dead were recent victims of the fighting and still carried canteens and rations, as well as other items worth collecting inside the cage."

He looked a bit sheepish, though many he looked at looked back at him with some increased regard. "But many were not recent. In fact, some, I would venture say, were "ancient" dead, with rags that looked to be of primitive make, and with no emblems I recognize from anything I have read or heard tell of. But again, I only concerned myself with what was immediately beneficial and might facilitate my escape."

His eyes furrowed at thoughts of old crumbled bits of parchment he'd tossed aside, as well as others he'd never bothered removing from their pockets. "I wonder now, if it may be worth going back and seeing if there might be some remnants of old maps. There may be a clue or two to finding some of these old ruins."
