Shortly after entering Conud, Oric had grabbed a horse from a small border town. After a few hours of hard riding he reached, Croatiad, the Capital. From a distance it could be seen that a large fire burned in the city. Now Oric knew why. The whole place was caotic, people were panicing running through the streets, snatching up every useful item they could find before making a b-line out of the city. Soliders despritly tried to restore order.
Oric rode up to one of them, out of breath, and asked, "I....need..hel..." Oric fell off his horse, exhusted. The solider picked him up and carried him to the hospital in the center of the city.
