SATURNYAN – The Cruel Empress

“Bitter night winds of winter rushed through the grim landscapes, audibly shrieking against the tips of the cragged mountains and down through the ancient hardwood forests. The hooting of the owls was lost among the symphony of night triumphant as the limbs of the wood creaked in evil rejoicing of the dawning of the dark.

High atop a particularly ghastly mountain stood a black castle built entirely of onyx – its forbidding shadow structure built upon the very face of the rock. Thousands of years ago, vast tunnel systems had been built leading from the castle into the very roots of the mountain below the earth.

Down these horrid corridors were dungeons deep and dark, their prisoners lost and forgotten and silenced by the endless night.” – The Cruel Empress
