What’s a good man to do when he realizes no good deed goes unpunished?
A Vision of War
Obidaan felt something and looked down at his hands. They were full of blood—blood that wasn’t his. At his feet lay many dead bodies. Soldiers, mages, paladins, all sprawled out before him. He looked around again. None of the other scenes were here, only the battlefield and the two combatants. Still they refused to give up as each took large chunks out of the other, with no affect. They stopped briefly, leaning on their weapons and catching their breaths. They looked back at Obidaan.
This got Obidaan’s attention, and caused him to jump with a start. They raised their weapons to him in a salute, and then continued with their bloody, pointless fight. Obidaan raised his hand and waved at them. They didn’t see it—they were back to fighting. A cheer arose behind him. He looked behind him, a vast army now stood there, shiny and gleaming, and ready for action. He looked at his hands. They were clean. He looked down, no bodies. He looked ahead—the two fighters were there still, but obscured now by fog and mist.
