The Steep

“Days later I reach my destination.  The Steep.  Long ago, mighty Ka’ii warlords lived here.  Until the Age of Blood.  When wars raged to win Tyon’s love.  Thousands perished.  In the end — still Tyon was unmoved.  The warlords died.  Unloved and filled with despair.  The Steep is haunted.  But the legend led me here.”
