And thus he was gone…

August 2, 2019

With a harsh gesture at the ground ahead and loud but guttural roar of uttered spell, there was a bright flash, a sharp and loud “CRACK!”, and a deep groaning and tearing sound as the earth before them ripped open to reveal a vast chasm into which tumbled quantities of rock and debris as the edges collapsed inward. With a long and wrenching curse audible even over the furor of a great host of men trying to calm their startled beasts, the speaker dove forward into the depths of blackness and the earth closed up over him like the jaws of some huge monster closing over it’s prey. As the beasts were brought back under control by their riders, a silence spread over the assembled host with only the lesser grumbles of the earth settling back into place and the cries of the startled birds soaring overhead to be heard.
