Few have been to this pristine valley, its vibrant greens hemmed in by cold, white mountains that are nearly impossible to scale. Animals graze here, taking leisurely drinks from the streams. They’ve not had to learn the fear of hunters.
There are plenty of legends about this place–the kind told over frothy mugs in smoky taverns. How many of those tales are inspired more by ale than truth no one really knows. But on one thing all of the stories seem to agree; that this beautiful country is not as empty as it would seem, nor is it friendly to strangers. Any who attempt to settle here come to an unpleasant end, for the tall mountains conceal the homes of those who have lived beneath them for thousands of years…and they want to keep them concealed for thousands more. With their own hands they set the round stones in the stream. Giant hands, placing stepping stones for giant feet to cross from one side to the other.
Are you content to swap tales in the safety of the tavern, mug of ale in hand? Or are you the adventurous type who can’t rest until you find out for yourself if the legends are true? Do you dare to venture across the giant stepping stones?
