This is the first, and hopefully not last, work of fiction set in the Keranak Kingdoms, our primary setting for the BareBones Fantasy role-playing game. We hope you enjoy it, please leave Eric some feedback in the reviews section after purchase!
The tremendous stone door did something that it hadn’t done in a very long time. It moved. There was an accompanying stone on stone grating sound. A blade of light cut through the black to land on a centuries old tapestry. Dust particles could be seen dancing in their chaotic flight. The stale air made its frantic escape through the now open portal. It was accompanied by the smells of decay and death.
A listener inside the room could hear the voices outside. Some were heated, others were excited. Guttural utterances of strain were followed by more sounds of stone being ground. The door moved more. Four slender figures scrambled into the forgotten room.
“Hurry, let’s get this shut,” barked one in thick elvish.
“Push,” grunted a feminine voice, also in the tongue of the elves. The tone of her voice indicated a control and maturity the other had lacked.
The stone protested as the door once again moved. The light fled the room. It became black once again. Their heavy breathing reverberated through the chamber.
