Hnnnnnggggh, okay so sorry this has taken so long to get round to.
For the exam, the required WC is 1000 words, and here is your surprise prompt;
A Dies Irae soldier approaches you in the guildhall, they hand you a hand-written note from Commander West, before walking away. The note reads;
Unfortunately, I am not available at the guild to handle this matter myself, otherwise, I wouldn't be writing to you right now. But seeing as you have proven yourself quite competent thus far, I am choosing to assign this task to you. Please handle this as swiftly as possible, and no, this mission is not optional.
We have received reports that a gang of miscreants in Motor City have recently come across a very dangerous weapon known as the Blood Sceptre. We believe that the immense corruption that is bound to this weapon has driven the gang mad with bloodlust and reports are coming in of violent raids ravaging the city. I need you to head to Motor City, and handle the matter by any means necessary. You have permission to use full force against these thugs as they will not hesitate to kill you on-site, however, be mindful of any civilians that may risk being caught in the crossfire. If you come across the sceptre, do not touch it with your bare hands, as far as we are aware, it's effects are immediate. Use a cloth or some kind of fabric sheath to protect yourself from its dark magic.
Don't forget to report to me when you get back. That being said, Good luck Soldier. The people of Motor City and the standing of Dies Irae is counting on you.
If there are any issues with the prompt, let me know. Otherwise have fun and good luck with your exam~
