Chapter 1: The Deus Palatium
The desert stretches from sky to sky, a three-hundred-and-sixty degree horizon of sandy dunes expanding to fill the entirety of Zanther’s vision. Rather than getting discouraged, he crouches down on the wooden deck of the dunerunner and rubs his eyes, trying to remove the burn-in caused by the reflective sand.
