The Light of Darkness
Commissioned by Kantuck Nadie Nata-akon
Kantuck hailed from a distant village, far beyond the familiar stretches of mountainous valleys and plains that the nomadic tribes called home. There she served as one of the chief's most trusted advisors. On matters of diplomacy, Kantuck was unrivaled.

With the sun setting, and abandoned by your Uncle on the top of the mountain, the time has come.
They stripped you down to nothing but pieces of cloth to cover your modesty. Then left you with no food and water. Dug a shallow pit and surrounded it with animal skulls. You're completely exposed to the elements, aside from one rock outcropping in front of you. Consequently, you sit in it, as the night gradually comes. The stars blink on, it's getting harsh. The gentle wind slowly flows over your near-naked body, -- and you cry.

"It has been 30 years, dear friend. Have you had any regrets? " the female asked.
A sip of some pine-needle tea planted a light citrus taste upon his rough tongue and he smiled reassuringly. In the faint orange light from the campfire his sharp teeth glowed, and wide green eyes looked over to his lovely companion.

Once, long ago, a group of people lived in the mountains, and for countless generations they were good. The land was kind to them; game was plentiful, and the weather acceptable. But with the passage of time hubris had set in, and they began to think themselves greater than the spirits and the Mother.
