Chapter One


It was morning at Black Tor Prison, the start of another tedious and unbearable day. Against an autumn sunrise of magenta and wedgewood blue, the bleak walls of Black Tor rose high upon the summit, perching over the tiny village of Doneff like a ponderous, threatening predator, its wide maw the black reinforced front gates. Peace Keeping Guards made their home inside the two gatehouse towers that fortified the heavy obsidian entrance. Four round watch towers enclosed a dusty inner bailey, and a five story Keep confined prisoners both above and below ground. The cold, damp, pock scarred walls of stone inside the Keep absorbed the complaints of a lawless brotherhood as prisoners opposed the unwelcome dawn.
