Grinning to himself, Khordus's nondescript figure slid easily through the crowds in central Teradia. The Emperor's placid features had cracked the moment Khordus had revealed himself for just that moment, and it amused the Korin Harbinger to no end. Aurinar's rage would be his undoing, however silent it was, and the Korin's victory in Teradia would be complete. The leaders of the city had fallen right into Khordus's hands long before Aurinar had visited them in person, and Khordus was beginning to feel disappointed with the Stamarian effort for Teradia; it had not been much of a challenge for the Korin operatives -- the Emperor hadn't even brought his own Guard! The Order of the Blade were strong enough warriors, but it was a pity that Khordus had no intention of allowing any Korin to duel any of them.
As he extended his gauntlet-covered hand toward an alley door, the lock could be heard clicking open from the inside. Without a word, he slipped into the tavern through the rear door and slid into one of the booths in the far corner. It had been designated as the meeting place for the Korin in the city, and the bartender had already been generously bribed for his patience with them. Many of the upstairs rooms already housed them, and plenty more littered the tables in the tavern inconspicuously. There was another group that was supposed to be returning soon, and Khordus would wait for them patiently. If they did not come, though, things would proceed anyway; he had a little havoc planned for the Stamarians before they could leave, and it would be all the sweeter with Aurinar chasing him around.
