Elf!”The battleaxe responded to the barked words with a blur of purple light and slash of steel.Time reduced itself to a crawl as Nysta saw the Shadowed Halls open so wide she could feel the sickly sweet breath of her impending death. As the axe hit her head, she imagined a bell clanging from a great distance. A bell so heavy its note rang deep in her guts and sent the worms racing.The Old Skeleton himself was surely dancing above her head.She almost heard him laugh.“Cant buy-” she heard the woman snarl.And, before her world imploded into darkness, thought she managed to murmur- “Too late. Ive bought it.”---The darkest shadows are within…Urak’s Keep.Once home to an unspeakable evil vanquished by Grim and Rule, it is now haunted by the tragic soul of Gul’Se, immortal wife to the Last of the Vampire Kings.It is here the Grey Jackets have come, led by Hyrax and a mysterious elf named Willem.
