a standing stone in Old Thark, with a hand print at the center of it - and impact lines that skip off the stone and trail over the land. Well, that just doesn't seem natural.
There was a series of dimensional folds involved (dangerous thing - considering Thark's History)
an odd mix of things that had been caught in the effect: biting stones, zombies, orcs, scarecrows and an animated silken dragon costume (of xinji origin).
the places was dusted with ashes.... the fear is that the evil Goddess of Cold ashes has come to the city across the river.
