The Darkening of Mirkwood

The Writings of Rufus North Took 4

Rufus undertook revising his earlier song about a cursed place in the river into an epic poem about cursed treasure and the lives it destroyed. One section of the poem is about a man imprisoned for 30 years because he took a share of the cursed treasure. Another section tells of a portion of the treasure taken by the people of a town and thus they were poisoned too. Another talks about brave warriors who lost their lives at a river crossing where a share of that cursed treasure was once lost.
