Scabbard

In the kingdom of Astaria, morality is not arbitrary, it is determined by a daunting test: a stab to the heart. The instruments used to carry out the test are swords imbued with the uncanny ability to judge the moral grade of anyone they impale. Should there be any moral failings in the stabbed candidate, death surely follows. Only a select few survive the test, and these survivors go on to serve in an elite police force tasked with keeping the peace in Astaria. These troopers, dubbed "Scabbards", must continue to sheath the swords in their bodies as a continues test, meaning any slip in morality will kill a Scabbard immediately. With the ultimate burden of their life, Scabbards cut down the morally apprehensible in Astaria.

Murphy Kosher is in the first stages of becoming a Scabbard. Along with friends he meets in training, Murphy risks his life for the well being of Astaria. He is about to enter into the intense Scabbard training grounds, will he survive this ultimate test?
