"Death and Redeption: An Elvan Tale"

"Death and Redeption: An Elvan Tale" - Wish - MMORPG.com

Mutable Realms has posted a new story for Wish fans to enjoy!  Here is a excerpt:

I laid my brother's body in the dreaming grove with my own two hands, while his widow and young daughter looked on with wet eyes and drawn, expressionless faces. We all wore our finest ceremonial outfits, white with silver thread, and outside the low, mournful voices of our kin performed a funeral dirge that rose and fell on the wind.

Lienne cradled her daughter against her side, attempting to lend strength she no longer had left to give. The little one didn't really understand what was happening; the concept of death was completely new to her. She was too young, even for an elf, to remember the Empire War, too naïve to grasp the dire new threat of the Nadirak. In the past year alone I had been to the dreaming grove six times.

As I arranged my brother in his alcove and placed the traditional greenery around him, I paused, unwilling to step back. I stared at him for a long time, uncertain of what this moment meant to me, only that it was intensely significant. He was pale and still, not really my brother at all. Essean Hawksbreath had died before my very eyes just over a day ago when a single Nadirak famine fiend lumbered upon us unawares and crushed his chest cavity with a single blow. This thing before me was just a shell, a hollow husk without even a trace within it of who he had been.
