The Gathering

The Imperial throne room was a bleak and decrepit place. Fire pits surrounded the chamber, and piles of skeletons cluttered near the stairs. This would make anyone feel sick to their stomach; however, many were use to places such as these. One was already walking up the black stone stairway until a deep voice stopped him.

“Who approaches?” said the voice.

“Tis I father,” said a young Wyvern.

“Garston, you have returned from your mission. I trust you were successful.” The young Wyvern bowed before his king before answering.
