Velan the Reticent

"Toward that great city traveled Velan, the last of the Klatothian Tribe. Great of strength was he, dark of eye, grim of countenance... He came with burning fire in his eyes... his thick boots eating miles of the earth. And truly, he never wore sandals, for those were for people who liked having their toes stomped."
A tale of adventure, sorcery, swordplay and gold. Also, figs.
