The Price of Generosity
Second Blood was the Crusader’s fortress in Axis, the focal point from which much of the Armored Tyrant’s forces were organized. Its dark Gothic peripets, ramparts, and spiky spires adorned this fortification, second only to First Triumph, the Crusader’s impenetrable fortress based in his first conquered hell hole. Second Blood was enchanted with powerful magics to withstand nearly any attack- magics that helped keep it in one piece as the fortress fell into the maw of the Stone Thief when the great beast devoured Axis at the summon of Lan’lei. Draven Halfhand and Crusader himself were inside when it was swallowed.
