Far from the kiln of the first flame, beyond the dreg heap, in an ancient and forgotten land, lies the kingdom of Dranthal, the land of four kings. Legend says that these four kings, men who have ruled for many a generation, are immune to the undead curse that has ravaged so much of the known world. More intriguing, the same legends tell of a flame, deep beneath this kingdom, which cannot die. As is to be expected, the surrounding lands and kingdoms coveted this power, and the flame with it, and war came to Dranthal from all sides, leaving the land a desolate ruin. And yet, so they say, the four kings still rule, and the flame still burns. And as the first flame weakens, and the undead curse rises once more, desperate hollows flock to Dranthal, through the war torn battlefields that surround the land, risking all that they have for the chance that they may shake their curse for good...

Among the eternally un-rotting corpses of a thousand pitiful hollows, and the shambling shells of some who still yet continue their cruel parody of life. A smouldering fire glows. Warming their hands by the fire, the vague shape of a man sits. Almost so still and silent that he could be mistaken for one of the hollows.

the hollows simply shamble around amongst the corpses, not noticing the man

Even in world of growing darkness there is light, amongst death, life, and amongst the hollow there are those who have not succumb to the rot. Daertoc was one such being. He strode along the windswept paths of Dranthal with a flaming torch in hand, unafraid of the beasts beyond his sight. His figure was obvious, the man silhouetted against the burning light of his torch.

Fingers wrapped in tattered cloth close around the hilt of a sword, and the figure's hooded head lifts up from looking into the flames, to follow the torch.

It was impossible to tell just how far away the torch was, but it was atleast moving away, following the path closely and not straying from it.

the path is barely there, churned into mud by tge marching of armies, and strewn with corpses. Nearby, a slain wyvern lies, hollows praying towards it

The man pulls himself up, slinging his meagre possessions over his shoulder in a ragged bag. He goes to kick dirt over the fire, but stops himself. He need not worry over secrecy, and perhaps another traveller following may find comfort in its warmth. He follows the man on the path, sword drawn, both for preparedness, and for lack of a scabbard.

The ragged man stops, some twenty yards behind the other man. Mist curling around his ankles. He waits, and watches. If anything, he is very good at that.

Not wishing to fight Daertoc opts to simply walk around them. All too aware of his own mortality and the fragility of the human form

it is clear very fast that the village is in ruins....save one building, in a graveyard, that is almost completely intact

the path is long and winding through the dilapidated graveyard. Before long, the warrior is ambushed by a pair of hollows, wielding broken swords as they pounce from behind gravestones

The warrior turns, wrenching his sword from the neck of the fallen hollow and swinging for the second. Only for the blade to swing cleanly through the air where the hollow once stood

The ragged man simply looks back with eyes of peircing green. A hood drawn over his head, and a mask of cloth across his face. Then, slowly, he starts to speak. "...I am looking... for... someone..." His voice is quiet. Even across the not small distance between them, he does not raise his voice above a thoughtful volume. As if he were alone, talking to himself.
