Introducing "The Vulture Lord" - A Mesmerizing Tale of Life in the Realm of Shyish!
In the mysterious realm of Shyish, where the living and the dead coexist in an extraordinary blend of peril and wonder, the city of Lament prepares for its most significant event – the Games. This festival, held once every decade, will determine the destiny of its champion.
Centuries ago, a heartbroken Vulture Lord, King Zothar Athrabis, struck a grim pact with Nagash to preserve the soul of his deceased son. Now, as each decade unfolds, the champion of the Games is chosen to host the tormented spirit of the king's child, while the previous vessel faces a fateful end. Many citizens of Lament consider this an esteemed honor, but when King Zothar selects the newly crowned champion, Lycus, to be raised as his own son, it raises questions within Lycus's family.
As the years pass, and the impending decade approaches, along with Lycus's grim destiny, the Prince of Athrabis finds himself torn between his duty to his newfound father and the opportunity to escape death and return to his previous life. Amidst a fierce and bloody rebellion and revelations of violent truths, Lycus must make a life-altering decision, one that will define his ultimate loyalties.
"The Vulture Lord" offers a captivating journey into the everyday existence of Shyish, where adventure, danger, and a myriad of mystical creatures are part of the norm. This gripping narrative, penned by the talented Richard Strachan, invites you to explore a world where the living and the dead coexist in ways you've never imagined.
