The Passing Of The Grey Company


A heartbeat of horses delivers, unasked, the heart’s desire. Of all joys, this is the least expected.

Young, old and ageless; rangers, maidens and kings — we expose our throats to the wolves of darkness; tread the paths of fear. Hope re-forged as faith, we look the Shadow in the eye; draw our weapons and its wrath.

We know not to what end we ride; only that we must go on.

Every heart bears a banner whose device no-one else can see. We all must stand where our oaths have bound us. But soon, we shall fulfill them and be free.
