Execution by Promotion?
Take a small team of soldiers and escort an old man behind enemy lines? Yes, the team includes the legendary warrior Lunn, but Harkin's "promotion" still sounds like a suicide mission.
Only a wizard would merit the risk. But this "wizard" acts like a simpleton. Slow pace, small smiles, refusing every request for spells.
Only thing worse than this mission? Seeing the wizard in action.
