Elkintra Rilyn Duskryn stumbles along through a warped and nebulous shadow-world that he cannot explain and where normal laws of reality do not appear to be true.

Whichever direction they take, it seems progress is limited, and Elkintra longs for the normality of the surface world, even if he must endure the accursed sun. Let us not tarry here a moment longer.
