Thanatos - About
Thanatos, how does it sound? The name echoes in the ears, emerging from long forgotten times. The dark sinister world covered in night, overgrown with high old trees, which boughs are similar to the crooked limbs of old people. A traveler, who might be on his pilgrimage, is passing around.
STORY 1: You came into this world looking for your past and a calmness of your soul. You have traveled for years, blundering through Aclavia's hills and dales, when now you enter a very different kind of world, a world of quiet death.

You should look after every movement, after every sound. The forests are dense and deadly; you never know what is behind you.
LOCATION: The country is situated into the lonesome northern corner of the kingdom called Aclavia, just at the Borders with Selavia. You may read about these two lands in my books of Thanatos saga and Cry in the Rain or The King Death Trilogy. See the links below. The Borders are very dangerous place, avoided by all reasonably people. And also legends have it there are lot of treasures hidden in the mountains left by the people, who weren't fast enough to fl
