The Shi'rah order, a secretive group of warriors that make their home among the villages of the Shuriman northern desert, are well known for their intricate style of fighting, known as Blade Dancing. The Shi'rah make their living by preying upon the trading caravans that travel the desert. They keep a strict moral code, only attacking merchants and rich foreigners. No undeserving blood has ever been spilled on the sand. The Shi'rah make sure of that.
"Shi'rah!" Someone cried, sounding the alarm. Immediately the camp became a flurry of activity. The villagers we had hired for guides were hurrying to saddle their camels. I could hear a horn in the distance, and the clamor of voices that were getting louder and louder.
Immediately they were upon us. They were all dressed in robes, with intricate masks balanced on their face. Their horses stampeded into the camp and the Shi'rah bounded off of them, armed with a mixture of spears, scimitars and daggers. They flew between the tents with inhuman agility, dodging our guard's clumsy blows. Their robes rippled as they danced amidst the camp. One of them produced a torch and set fire to the wagons carrying our goods. All around me, my colleagues began to fall, their throats glistening red.
One of the Shi'rah knocked me to the ground. His mask had fallen off and I found myself staring into the face of a young man with brown hair and a long scar on his cheek. His eyes burned with hatred as he brought up his blade.
"Please..." I stammered but he smiled, a terrible, sinister grin. A blade shot out from he sleeve and he winked before slashing it forward and all went black.
