Arising from a terrible nightmare, Ankrauser could just soak what a terrible dilemma it was to have the same dream over and over. Though matters aside, he had received a letter from the king himself. It was a direct order to Ankrauser to march to Blackhaven and meet up with his cousin Resper Baratheon. Arriving two days ahead of Lord Baratheon his cousin, he was stopped from entering the town itself. The guard who was stationed at patrolling the outer area escorts Ankrauser to their main camp. Having a talk with the keeper of Black Haven, Lord Garth Black, it would seem that they left the town in a desperate attempt to get away from a plague of some sort that drives people mad.
