WEWRIWA Submission

They came to the Bright One, seeking guidance. Their fire burned different, the color a deeper hue. In all essences, they resembled the Bright One, but they were blind, reaching aimlessly in the dark. The Bright One called out to them, but I could not discern its words.

Cages of bone erupted from the earth, enveloping each of the blind, drowning out their light, until only the Bright One remained. Alone once more.


-Excerpt from The Mad Books, Chapter of Immolation written by Loremaster Drakel’Ai
