By: Robert Adducci

We've all heard the tales of the grandmothers meant to scare their children to their beds; tales of creatures that live in the dark places, the cruel G'lins, stories of foul Nogmes who trick young mothers to giving them their newborns with illusions, tales of barbarous Trolls who lure warriors in challenges to never be seen again, not to mention the Xies who tempt great men to the depths of silt pits with the promise of lust. These are all tales with truth in them; tales from the old days of Athas.
