It has been one hundred and fifty years since the end of the Thrall
Wars, when the four dread Thrall Masters rained destruction down on
the land of Thac. The world has been relatively quiet since, but dark
things have started to rise around the little town of Ravenford.
The town’s only hope lay in four newcomers: a fearless young warrior with
blades of fire, an elven wizard as deadly to his friends as his
enemies, a cynical halfling who might be an assassin, and a quiet
gnome whose very touch can heal. Together they set out to face the
creatures of darkness. Yet they soon find they are facing more than
just a few rogue monsters, for a greater force lurks behind them all.
From eerie woods to underground caves to haunted ruins, they encounter
terrifying monsters, creatures of the night, and demonic sorcery. Can
the young heroes stand against the forces of darkness, or will they
too fall prey to the evil that threatens to destroy Ravenford?
Lloyd followed Seth’s finger and saw a strange sight. The bottom half of a skeleton stood in the middle of the path. He watched curiously as Brundon rushed up behind it and kicked it with his boot. The creature whirled around and began chasing him, but Brundon dodged and ended up behind it. The tracker kicked it and dodged again. It was like watching a strange dance.
A familiar voice came from behind him. “He sure is stubborn.” Lloyd turned in time to see Titan walk up beside him, a thin smile across her lips. “I guess we should go help him.”
Lloyd fell in beside her. They walked up the trail together as the crazy fight continued. They stopped a few feet away, watching as Brundon dodged the skeleton again.
Titan chuckled softly. “Would you like a hand?”
Brundon glanced their way and shook his head. “No, I got this.”
Titan glanced at Lloyd and shrugged. “Like I said, stubborn.”
Lloyd had a sudden idea. He held out his hammer and called over to the tracker. “Hey, Brundon, care to try it out?”
Brundon had just swung behind the skeleton again. He glanced over at Lloyd and his eyes fell on the proffered weapon. A broad smile spread across his face.
“Don’t mind if I do.”
“Sure, accept his help and not mine,” Titan said with mock disappointment.
Brundon backed away from the sightless skeleton. “Only his weapon, love, only his weapon. Of course, if you want to hand me your mace…”
“No, no. I’d like to see you wield that hammer.”
“Suit yourself.” Brundon reached the two of them and accepted the hammer from Lloyd, attempting to heft it with one hand. Without warning, the head of the hammer dipped and began to fall. Brundon swiftly grasped it with his other hand, catching it just before it hit the ground.
A short laugh escaped Titan’s lips. “Having some trouble there?”
“I’m…just…fine…” Brundon grunted. Slowly but surely, he lifted the hammer back up. He grasped it firmly with both hands, and after a few test swings was able to effectively wield the weapon. “See, piece of cake.”
Titan chuckled under her breath. “Yeah, sure it is.”
Brundon ignored her, turning and rushing the roving skeleton. In a couple of minutes he reduced it to a pile of cracked bones. Brundon stood over the pile with a grim look of satisfaction on his face. “Well?” he said, glaring defiantly at Titan.
“Oh yes, all hail Sir Brundon, the skeleton slayer.”
Sharp snorts of laughter broke out from down the trail. Lloyd turned around in time to see Seth roll off the skeleton he had been sitting on and fall onto the ground. He lay there laughing until he couldn’t breathe.
Titan taunted him further. “Well, Sir Brundon, there’s another skeleton waiting to meet its end via your mighty mallet.”
Brundon fixed his partner with an acid stare. It quickly faded though, replaced with a half-twisted smile. “Why not.” He shrugged, then strode down the trail to finish off the last skeleton. While Brundon joyfully hammered away, Lloyd and Titan rejoined the others.
