were from such different backgrounds it is surprising
we were able to work together. Crag Hack was an
easygoing man, with a passion for combat, wine
and lots of women. He made me smile and forget my
own troubles for a while. When Gem wasn't
slaughtering the forces of undead, she was a quiet
and reserved woman with a kind heart. Gelu had
barely graduated from the Forest Guard, ready for
a fight and eager to prove himself. His seriousness
was surprising in one so young and contrasted
greatly against the boisterous Crag Hack.
Somehow we managed to stop a Necromancer, Sandro,
who had plans for world domination. Manipulating
Gem, Gelu and Crag Hack, he was able to reach Deyja
with some very powerful items in his possession. Once
there, he vaulted a puppet king, Finneas Vilmar, to the
throne and threatened to conquer all of Antagarich.
My tale will begin in four separate places, but in the
end you see that all of the events were intertwined,
leading to the near destruction of us all.
