The long-lost artifact known as the Rod of Light and Darkness had a touch that could breathe life into dead things or steal it away from that which lived. In this very moment, the location of the artifact has been revealed, an opportunity that cannot be ignored. But it rests in an area known to treasure-hunters as a place where lightning rain burns flesh and shatters dreams…
