The Ambitions of Kreltahk
Submitted by Stuart on December 16, 2020 - 14:43
The kingdom is crumbling.
Rumors fly about kurakvin raids. The short, strong, and bloodthirsty kurakvin haven't been seen in the kingdom since the last war with them, long ago.
The king won't acknowledge the rumors. Nobody can show proof, not even his own wizards, although his trust in the wizards is fading fast.
Amid the chaos, Kreltahk laughs. He knows an opportunity when he sees one. He knows the kurakvin have returned. And he knows how to use them to serve his goals.
Kreltahk's goals are simple: Rule the land and everyone in it. Showing mercy is optional.
Few will pay attention to a young boy from a remote fishing village. Few will be prepared for the surprise that is coming.
