EXCERPT FROM "RISE" (My book) : "Ben-Don, wasn't always a wasteland. Two milenia ago, the Minotaurs Ruled the land. They weren't raging beasts or monsters as depicted in legend, but strong, wise, and peaceful. When The Morphgs came, they slaughtered the Minotaurs, took thier lands, burned thier cities, it was the fall of the strongest empire to be seen in all of Kine. There were rumors for hundreds of years of Minotaurs seen in the northern area of Ben-Don, but any survivors are long since dead. The Minotaur weapons in Fedana's armory are the only known surving pieces of the Minotaurs empire. They may look strange to you and me, but the strength of the steel was incredible. The swords were all massive, some of them ten stones or more in wieght." NOTE: More weapons for my armory....which I plan on making soon.
