Blood and Magic
The greatest war that was ever fought is known as the Soul War. It took place many ages ago, long enough that many of the details have been changed to myth and legend. What is known for a fact is that the war claimed nearly half the souls in Avalon.
This is not just an author’s hyperbole artistic statement around the horrors of the war. It is simply the most accurate way to describe the results of the war. It was not a war where men simply died. This was a war were the souls of the dead were captured, tortured and thrust into the corpses of the enemy. For the first time in recorded history the dead rose to fight the living.
The Borrows near Oak Hollow are said to contain a number of graves from the Soul War.
