The Beginning is the introduction mission at the start of the single player campaign.
Achieving a 3 Star ranking on the prologue level is simple as you will be following tutorial directions for most of the mission. When you are given freedom in your choice of move, it is just a matter of moving towards The King at the top of the map. Let the enemies come to you; they won't damage you at all. Finish the map in 8 moves or less, and 3 Stars are yours.
- <Narration>: One rainy night at Cherrystone Castle...
- <Swordsman 1>: This weather is giving me the spooks.
- <Swordsman 1>: Did you hear that?!
- <Swordsman 2>: Cut it out! It's just thunder.
- <Swordsman 2>: But I'm, er... going to patrol the throne room.

- Getting to the king shouldn't be much of a challenge.
- There he is, all alone in his chambers. How convenient.
- The fewer guards I dispatch, the quicker this will be...
- ...but some unfortunate wretches still stand in my way.
- I'll start by defeating that one over there.

- <Mercival>: Sigrid...
- (Sigrid attacks Mercival.)
- <Sigrid>: ...Humans are so frail.
- <Mercival>: Do you understand what you've just done? You'll start a war!
- <Sigrid>: War? The inane squabble of children.
- <Sigrid>: Where is the Key?
- <Mercival>: You'll never have it. The Key is in safe hands, far from the grasp of a monster like you!
- <Sigrid>: 'Safe hands'...? Before you die, understand this: nothing is safe from me.
- <Mercival>: ...You're making a mistake.
- <Sigrid>: Hush now.
- (Sigrid kills Mercival.)

- <Swordsman>: The King, My Lord! The King has been killed!
- <Emeric>: What?!
- <Mercia>: No!! Father...
- <Emeric>: Mercia. I'm so sorry.
- <Emeric>: Who did this?
- <Swordsman>: Sir, the assailant appears to have been a v-v-vampire.
- <Emeric>: The Felheim Legion...
- <Emeric>: Princess Mercia, the murder of your father is an act of war. We must defend the kingdom.
- <Mercia>: War? We're at war...
