The Revolution of Shining Alloys
Dro-dana was an insane hunter from a tribe in the frozen North. He ranted about “walking steel” and was generally unstable. He kidnapped a boy named Ebell and threatened to kill the boy unless the tribe gave Dro-dana a boat. Dro-dana took the boat Ebell South across the White Sea to the Fair Isle where he lost his left hand when an ancient automaton attacked him. He fled the Fair Isle, but the loss of blood eventually overtook him. He died while Ebell feebly rowed South to Tuskad.
