Of Ash And Bone | First Draft: Ongoing
Eat or be eaten.
That is the way of the nomadic ice tribe that travels deep within Nuweir, an icy land so dark that not even the most powerful of men dare to tread. To most of the world, they are cannibalistic savages. To few, they are warriors of proud spirit. And to the gods above, they are the keepers of a darkness that threatens to devour the world whole.
Each year, this darkness is given a host; female, weak, docile. Vulnerable. And for the past century, as the guardians of this darkness, the tribe of Nuweir have faithfully slain this chosen host to rid the world of the blight for only sixty days, fifty nine nights, and twelve hours.
In those sixty days, fifty nine nights, and twelve hours, a woman gives birth upon the final hour of the darkness' banishment from the earth: a daughter of the star god.
Now, with all of the pieces in their proper places, the game of gods, men, and monsters can finally come to its ultimate end...
And in this world, you can only eat or be eaten.
