(Restart Story)

You panic, attempting to run out of the shack mindlessly towards the forests surrounding Mirror Lake.

You barely make it two steps out of the decrepit building when you are completely frozen in place.

A ghastly figure appears before you. He looks like a human to you, but it is clear that he left that part of himself behind a long time ago.

"Hmm, what a disappointment you turned out to be. Still, your soul should prove quite valuable to my work."

He raises his right hand, palm facing towards you. At first, it appears as if your mysterious assailant is doing nothing. But as you move your eyes downwards, you see that he is using his powers to extract something from you.

Initially you think he is only harvesting your magical energy, but it is clear that what he is doing goes far beyond that. The pain becomes excruciating; it feels as if your bones are being ripped from your body one at a time, your blood boiling within you simultaneously.

This goes on for what seems like an eternity. Finally, the pain stops. You look up to the Lich who stole your soul, and feel nothing besides the desire to serve your undead master for all eternity.

He smiles at you, revealing unusually white teeth.

"And now, your true journey begins..."

The End
