DonKallard sat upon an awkward throne. It was grand in size, but odd in shape and made of twisted gargantuan roots, gilded in gemstones glittering from the slight glow of a nearby moss. He felt more comfortable at his desk and in the training pits, but sometimes such pomp and circumstance was required of the Prime-arch.
