An Overthrown Tale
It rests deep in the ground, they say, an ancient burial treasure of unimaginable wealth. Riches to humble even the most prosperous men, locked away from time itself. But the Council’s edict was clear – keep the tombs of the ancient dalan closed. Keep the past sealed. But where there is wealth, there is greed, and nothing stays buried forever.
Thorben Paulson is a simple man, trying to raise his family the best way he knows how. Unfortunately, the Council’s tax collectors demand more and more each thaw, taking in food and supplies what a man lacks in coin. Desperation pushes Thorben to extreme measures, and in the end, down a path he had abandoned long ago. His path will take him into forgotten crypts, places left untouched since before his ancestors arrived on Denoril’s shores. But more lies in wait than things that sparkle and glimmer, and in Denoril, something never truly die.
