From the introduction:
On the battlefield of black and white, the reign of the King comes to its end. He and his few remaining soldiers stand with their backs against the wall, their ranks diminished, their morale deflated.
The spears and swords of the fierce enemy soldiers draw near. A final thought comes to the King's mind as he watches death close in.
"In my dreams, I dreamed of two kings leading two armies together," he muses. "I knew our unification would come at a great cost, but I never expected that my death would be the price to pay."
