The Faraway Paladin Plot
Far away from human civilization, a single human child lives in a long-destroyed city of the dead. His name is Will and he is raised by three undead: the warm skeleton warrior Blood, the graceful mummified priestess Mary and the quirky wizard Gus. The three shower the boy with love and teach him all their knowledge.
But one day he begins to wonder who he really is – to do so, he has to uncover the secrets of the faraway land of the undead. He gets to know the love and mercy of the good gods as well as the bigotry and madness of the evil gods.
