Stavian's bloody assault on the Senate hurls the city of Oppara into a state of shock. Where only hours before the city was jubilantly celebrating the Grand Day of Exaltation, the streets now stand empty. Instead of riots and chaos, an uncertain silence fills the air - citizens of Taldor are accustomed to pushing forward in times of crisis.

Even if only to be paid for their earlier work.
