New feature: enemy generals
Story first, feature description later.

In the first two months, the rebels had seemed unstoppable. They had taken the north-east of Arulco by storm. Cambria fell next. They then focused on the military bulwark of Alma. This had been the first point of resurgence for the battled royal army - while they ultimately couldn't keep the city, the insurgents paid a heavy price for it. Huge losses had forced them into a defensive position for a change. Only their elite core of foreign mercenaries kept the lines in the bombed out surburbs of Cambria from falling back to the royalists. As the conflict entered its fourth month, the rebels were faced with a long, dragged-out conflict they could ill afford.

The situation in these days was dire for the rebels. The royalists had seized the initiative, and were playing their numerical superiority. Something had to be done.

Day 131, 15:30, former military correctional facility, Alma.

The infamous military prison of Alma had been a special kind of hell. The rebels hadn't spared the guards, but the building was mostly still intact. It now housed those royalists that had surrendered. Many of the low-rank soldiers had switched sides in the beginning. The captured officers were a different breed though. Most were just to stubborn and gambled upon the army. True enough, the army had reached the outer fences of the prison twice. In those days, it seemed only a matter of time before the prison would be retaken.
A few officers, however, were Arulcans. One of them, a second Lieutnant Ibanez, actually wanted to end the bloodshed. He had joined the army eagerly in his young years, in a mixture of juvenile sense for adventure an ill-placed patriotism. He decided to make an offer to the rebels. Luckily for him, Miguel's right-hand man, a veteran called Carlos, was inspecting the prison this day.

http://i58.tinypic.com/2e0k2g7.png"I... I was expecting Miguel Cordona..."



http://i61.tinypic.com/v5ztbn.jpg"He's too busy to waste his time with lowlifes like you. Talk to me, or never talk again, scum."



http://i58.tinypic.com/2e0k2g7.png"Sigh... alright, I guess you'll do as well. Let me be straight about this. This could put me into trouble, but... guess I'm already deep in. Just don'T let the other prisoners in, or I'm done for."



http://i61.tinypic.com/v5ztbn.jpg"Go on..."



http://i58.tinypic.com/2e0k2g7.png"you've put a huge strain on the army. The queen has been mercilessly punishing those that failed her in the first months. The only one of the old guard still alive of the old cadre is General Matis. But he's been transferred to Chitzena for dsiciplinary reasons."



http://i61.tinypic.com/v5ztbn.jpg"So Matis is still alive... but perhaps not for long. Is that what you are saying?"



http://i58.tinypic.com/2e0k2g7.png"Yes. I figured... you know... he might actually be willing to join you if you mae him a good offer."



http://i61.tinypic.com/v5ztbn.jpg"Is that so? And I guess you are doing this out of the kindness of your heart?"



http://i58.tinypic.com/2e0k2g7.png"Pleas, sir, believe me. I never wanted this war, I was just following orders. I dont want this... bloodshed anymore."



http://i61.tinypic.com/v5ztbn.jpg"Hmpf. We'll see about that. For now, give me the location of the general. I'll have someone contact him."



http://i58.tinypic.com/pozfl.pngCarlos wasted no time. Using special radio channels that even most of the rebels did not know of, he contacted one the rebels' more unorthodox assets in San Mona.
