The skeleton did not see the blasphemy it was writing. The Sun had never touched the dark tunnels, and the skeleton’s eyes had long ago decayed to dust. It didn’t matter.

9/24/2018 To shepherd in the Treasures of Khaldun we have a series of short pieces of fiction to supplement the events in-game.  We present the first installment, The Detective By EM Malachi Chief Inspector K. Jasper considered the stone relic and the blood that covered it. He understood why the town guard of Trinsic had wanted his help. This was the third collector of mystical artifacts who had been killed in the last week. This clearly was not a coincidence. While the fresh blood was obviously from the relic’s final owner, Jasper didn’t know what to make of the strange […]
