It Was A Dark And Stormy Night

It Was A Dark and Stormy Night

1. Improving (?) on the Original (The Treachery of Isengard)

It was a dark and stormy night and black swarms of orcs laboured far below, pulling down the ancient groaning trees and tearing their hapless victims limb-from-limb, the nightmare scene lit in flickering doomlight as the lightning flashed through the casement, followed by the thundering growl as of a savage wild beast prowling about the smooth black stone tower, now slick and shining from the caress of the pounding rain, while their leader, a foul creature cowering before the tall, hook-nosed figure of the wizard whose obsidian eyes reflected the swirling intensity of the orb gripped between his cupped hands as his white-seeming robes shimmered and changed, confusing the eye, bowed himself obsequiously to the ground and whispered in an evil voice, 'What is your command, my Master?'
