When the ten gods of the Kingdom of Rezzia went to war with the mystics of the lands of Pawelon, neither side could gain any advantage until the mystics discovered the one thing that would give them an edge.
Sarla, one of the researchers of Pawelon, had been digging through ancient scrolls of the times before to try to find any kind of clue on how to end the stalemate that was draining both lands of men, food, and spirit. She had looked through at least a dozen faded and worn scrolls when she found what she was looking for. It was an obscure reference to sacrifice, one that would give the Pawelon mystics the additional power they needed to overcome their oppressors.
This was no ordinary sacrifice. No goat, cow, or fowl would work. In the scroll, it outlined the bleeding of a virgin girl, and not just any virgin. This virgin had to be not only of pure body but pure spirit, and holding the power of Themsulas … something not seen in over two hundred years.
