Jameson had never been to the world of Port Royal, though he had heard the rumors of it being far different than the norm. And from the looks of it, they were quite true. Stepping out of his ship, the first thing that waited to greet him was the crisp smell of salt water - the sound of cawing gulls and the sight of the vast blue sea.

Word was that a new Governor had taken control of this world and now was set on reorganizing and reforming its government and military. From the looks of the town, which was damaged and being steadily repaired by a number of workers - this also was true.

The King walked on through the town's streets, his bodyguard keeping close behind him. Dressed in his casual white suit instead of his more kingly robes, he was intent on meeting with the new official in charge - having decided to give him a gift and an offer of alliance.

Soon they reached the Fort which the Town took its name from, and he was sure that the sentries had spotted them well in advance.

"Announcing His Majesty, the King of France!" Said one of the bodyguards.

The news of the King of France's arrival reached Yin Ahriman's ears a few moments after it happened. Christopher Mutton, his right-hand man, had entered the command room as the Governor signed some papers related to the restoration of certain buildings that had been damaged during the latest conflict.

King of France... Yin Ahriman muttered that title with a small smile on his face. But not "our" France, right?

They apparently come from the world called "The Country of the Musketeers". Informed him Christopher Mutton. What should we do?

That's obvious. Yin Ahriman would stand up from his seat. We go welcome them!

The Governor's step resounded through the busy halls of Port Royal's Fort. Everyone had something to do and everyone was relatively busy with something at the moment. The arrival of emissaries from another world had some of them on edge, as they weren't used to having visitors that didn't belong to their own lands. Most of them, however, knew that Yin Ahriman would be able to handle the situation without problems. He wouldn't have been trusted with the title of Governor if he couldn't do something like that.

Greetings! Yin Ahriman would finally reach the front door, speaking in a loud and clear voice. I am the Governor of Port Royal, Yin Ahriman! And I'm leaned to believe that His Majesty, the King of France, has a name of his own as well... am I right? The Governor would end his question by showing Sir Nicholas a confident smile.

"Yes, indeed." Said the King, returning Yin's grin. "I am Nicholas Jameson at your service. You may call me whatever you prefer. Let's dispense with the formalities and get right to it. I've come to give my congratulations and a gift. d'Artagnan?"

He snapped his fingers, and his right hand man saluted and held out a large clear box. In it was a small sword - a rapier-like weapon. Inscribed on its blade were the words Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno - which meant, "One for all, and all for One", the motto of the Musketeers.

"A gift. Along with an offer of alliance between our worlds. I believe we could both benefit from such a union."

Yin would take the sword in his hands and inspect it. The rapier had been crafted with extreme care and the inscription had such a deep meaning behind. The box it came on was beautiful as well, adorned with various precious ornaments, as if wanting to give a hint of what was stored inside.

This is truly a fine sword! Yin commented after a few seconds. I accept this gift with joy in my heart, King Nicholas! And as for your offer of alliance... why don't we discuss it inside so we can be more comfortable?

Yin Ahriman would lead alone King Nicholas through the corridors and halls of the Royal Fortress. A couple of soldiers offered themselves to serve as escort, but Yin refused their offer, as he wanted to continue his discussion with the King alone.

They'd reach a room with a small round table inside and a number of cushioned seats around it.

Please take a seat. Yin would said, taking a seat himself afterwards. So? Why do you come to me, out of all world leaders around, to offer a pact of alliance? At the moment, the Governor was more interested about Nicholas' reasons more than the actual pact... or maybe they were at the same level. In any case, Yin Ahriman wanted to hear his answer.

"The answer is quite simple. I have heard of you and I believe you are a man of honor. You eschewed the title of King in favor of something more egalitarian." He gestured to the town outside the window. "And further, I have seen how you are intent on rebuilding this world - even when it would be easier to leave it as it is."

He paused, then withdrew his blade, Decem Mandata from its sheath and gently placed it on the table in front of them.

"And also, the other reason is because I have long had an interest in this world. A friend of mine used to rule here - a long time ago. Since then, he has disappeared and as such, this world was left in a state of disarray. A situation which I have seen is being remedied by your government."

"As a fellow leader, I know how difficult it can be sometimes, and so I figure that as your peer - I should hope to help in whatever way I can."

That's a good answer. Yin would nod at Nicholas' words. You speak without looking down on me, truly treating me as your equal, and you worry about the people of this world, even if they have nothing to do with you. That's enough for me to tell that you are a fine King: your people must be happy.

But yes. As you can see, after eyeing Decem Mandata for a second (another beautiful sword), Yin continued with their talk, Port Royal is currently in a phase of recovery, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

An alliance with another world would certainly do well to Yin's land: currently, the people of Port Royal believe that they don't stand a chance against threats from another world. Even if they recognized Yin as someone strong enough to lead them, they are probably unsure if he's truly able to make them a prosperous nation. But, if an alliance with another world was made...

An alliance would certainly lift my people's spirits and make them have more faith in their own country. I'll gadly accept your offer.

And of course, Yin Ahriman laughs for a second, though I'm currently a Governor, I haven't given up in attaining the title of King. But that will come in due time. For the time being, my eyes are in Port Royal and nowhere else.

"I understand. And of course, given the state of affairs in the Universe - one might never know when this 'Apocalypse' group might show up and cause trouble." He was coming now to the meat of the conversation, so to speak. "The fact of the matter is, the situation in the Universe is very grim indeed. I can understand your desire to improve your current state of affairs, but that's why I am here as well: A warning. If your world should ever come under attack - you need only send for aid, and my army will be there. Know that your naval forces alone cannot handle the threat."

He was grim and stone-faced for a long moment. "And I am sorry to dampen the moment of friendship with this ill-news, but I wouldn't be doing my duty as your ally if I didn't share every piece of information."

Then his expression lightened, and he gently bumped his fist against Yin's.

"But at least, glad I am to know you are so quick to accept my offer."

Well, if someone like you comes to my door asking for an alliance, I can't just say "no", right?

Yin would bump Nicholas' fist with a smile.

Of course, I'll be careful: if I'm ever in a difficult situation, I'll call for your help, and I'll discuss with you and my other allies how to deal with the situation. However, at the moment, I'm not too worried about a possible attack from Apocalypse's part. At the very least, I don't think he'll attack Port Royal just yet, considering what he is doing in other worlds. Yin Ahriman spoke about the civilian councils. Basically, as long as I'm still old enough to rule and keep showing progress in this world, he'll leave Port Royal at the end of his list.

...however, I'll clash with him sooner or later. There was a confident smile on his face. Because I don't intend to stop with Port Royal.

Yin Ahriman would then stand up and approach the nearby window, looking at the sky through the glass.

I have a much greater dream, Nicholas. He'd turn around to Nicholas again. I'll first turn Port Royal into a world that can stand up to the others... and then I'll begin to move.

My dream is simple: I wish for unification! His voice would resound through the halls of the fortress. To conquer everything there is to conquer in this universe and to rule everything under one single flag! Following such a path will obviously lead me to fight many enemies, Onyx included... and I'll defeat every single one of them with my own two hands!

So what do you think, Nicholas, about this foolish goal of mine?

"Many others have spoken of such ambitions. Every one of them, save one, has failed. He ruled nearly all the Universe through a great empire - of which, I am one of the few vestigial survivors.

I have no desire to repeat my previous mistakes. Even so, if you do succeed in turning Port Royal into a world - a stepping stone, worthy of such a goal, I shall join you in whatever comes - be it either ill-fortune or glory."
He rose from his seat and returned Yin's smile, then put his hand on the younger man's shoulder.

"And what would you call this union of yours?"

That's a good question, Nicholas. I hadn't actually thought of that. Yin's eyes drifted away to the ceiling of the room, deep in thought.

I've decided! Yin Ahriman lifted a clenched fist to the air. I shall call it the Round Table Union! Just like King Arthur met with his knights in a round table so that everyone would be of equal standing, I too want to create an unified organization where every world is equal to each other in their rights.

But enough of that. Yin would return to his seat. Tell me a bit more about you, Nicholas. Other than a King, just who exactly are you?

"Well, I was born in the Enchanted Dominion." He said, pausing for a moment - briefly lost in memory. "I was the third-born of a noble couple. My father, whose name was James - I took as my patronymic surname. I was raised and trained from birth to be a knight. Since I left my home at age 18, I've fought in three major wars - killed many men, and loved only one woman a passion that most would never dream of." As he finished his explanation he crossed his arms, and sat back down.

"Around 10 years ago, my heart was separated from me and created a Nobody named Xicohlnas. Since the Dominion was restored, he ceased to be - and I reawakened. That is who I am."

I see. Yin nodded at Nicholas words. So you too know how dreaful war can be. I may not look like it, friend, but I'm a bit older than I look. My mind and soul are, at least. They've seen countless battles along many eras and have witnessed the rise of many empires... sometimes even to see them fall.

So rest assured, my friend, that when the right time comes, I'll know what to do. And he'll show another confident smile to the King.

Out of mere curiosity, do you remember anything from the time you were a Nobody, Nicholas? I'm pretty curious about how it feels to be in that state.
