Prologue - The Box - Owein Parnassus

March 17, 2017

There are many things hidden in the sands. Place a rock in an hour glass, watch time pass and grow stagnant. Place sand in an hour glass, watch it pass with abandon and slip away forever. Sand erodes, sand sustains. And for the denizen's of the Scendarian desert, it is a constant. When Owein returns from a trip out in the sands, he finds that the sand has flown away, and has revealed new revelations in his home town of Baelstrya.
