Concept work for a story about the demigod Shessal, born of the Moon, who is sent on a military mission to light a circular shrine at the top of a mountain.
Things go horribly wrong.
Across the marsh to the Teak House.
Shessal and Illaine drag the war prisoner, Nectarion,
through the caverns of older gods.
Nectarion escapes, dooming Illaine.
