I was walking along the usual path in Bludwood Forest, on a cool misty night… the shadows were dancing along the hedgebane.
I heard what sounded like a twig snap off to one side, rustling of bushes, a black blur. I turn to try and spot what it was when I feel a chill on the back of my neck. I whip back around and see Dark Pestilence looking me in the eye…
I fly backward after feeling a tug in the back of my body, swallowed up by the cool, grey mists.
The fog fades. I find myself in a castle hallway, feels familiar. A large, secure door is down at one end. It’s the hall that leads to the pyramid chamber, in the Castle of Myriad Shades.
