In the deafening silence of the nocturnal desert, I am nothing more than a grain of sand, aimlessly wandering like the shifting dunes that are eternally carried by the wind.
Reality becomes obscured, as my senses give way to delirious illusion. But what I seek is beyond the mortal realm, and so is the elemental spirit that appears before me.
It is bound to these gates, a vessel to a different world. My bloodline’s talisman is the key to set it free from its perpetual prison. As it rises in a smokeless fire, it pays its gratitude: an elixir of liquid luminosity, bestowing its powers of transcendence.
The lost city I am searching for is enshrouded in a cloak of cursed magic, after its inhabitants were banished. I am here to break it.
