The forces of the Taiga are ruled by the spirit of fangs. Roars from within. The hunter approaches. A ghost of ancient lineage and power that can harry the mind into fearing even the silence. Run as long as you may. The hunter can hear your burdened breath. Hide where you will. The hunter can smell your weary hearts current. Fight the torment as fiercely as you wish. The hunter can see your true face. Nearer. . . nearer. . . and yet nearer still. A cry form the forest is heard. The phantom has killed again. Innocence, extinguished with the fall of teeth and claws. A life exists no longer in the Taiga. Only the adept may claim the spoils of the fridgid waste.
