Without religion good people
will still be good and bad people will still be bad,
but because of religion good people have done bad
things. Steven Weinberg.
Once the envy of all kingdoms the
island of Ackerlea and its castle have deteriorated
due to the ravages of time and the natural expansion
of the surrounding forest. What was once looked upon
with awe has been forgotten, leaving the distant
memories of wonder to be replaced with rumour, as the
truth of the past gradually decays.
For one however, rumour is not
enough to satisfy her curiosity, and takes it upon
herself to find out the truth as to the demise of the
once beloved kingdom which she now calls home. Her
peace loving religious followers then receive a
terrible shock when they realise their priestess has
inadvertently awoken a creature leaving it up to her
to destroy it using the same method as the original
inhabitants, by human sacrifice.
Fjörgynn Warriors is the third and
final part of the Effluo Insula series chronicling
the strange and mystical events that have taken place
upon the island.
