"Legend speaks of a lake in the dark woods were a warrior can go to see the Black Wolf. It is not easy getting to the lake. There are a few trials your soul must overcome to reach it. On the edge of the dark woods stand the Weeping Willows. Their branches bend in sadness and their tears can have you lost inside your own emotions. Be mindful of the Willows words. They can drag you down and break your soul. Once you make it past the willows you will step into the Mud Of Time. Here you can get stuck in the troubles of your past. Some even sink, get stuck and remain there forever. Even as you make it through the Mud one must be very careful. It is easy to leave the Mud on your boots and carry it with you into the future. The Mud does not make itself. It is caused by the next trial. That is when you reach the Swamp Of Sorrows. This is a very dark place were the troubles of your past remain submerged. Soaking in the Sorrows forever. One must be cautious in the Swamp. If you lose your concentration you will start to soak in the Sorrows and will remain there forever. Slow and steady with a mindful eye on the path will lead you out of the Swamp. No time to be weak now. Just because your back on solid ground does not mean you have reached your destination. Now you stand upon the Burial Grounds. This place is were the spirits of your life come to rest. But rest they will not once you are there. Haunt you they will! The Black Wolf has many allies in the dark woods. The Spirits of the Burial Grounds are his soldiers and you are the enemy. With your faith strong and heart full of light the Spirits cannot harm you. They can be driven back into their graves to rest once more. Finally you will see that you have reached the lake! It is almost to calm. The mist hangs low above the still water. Now you are ready to stare into the eyes of the Black Wolf! Slowly walk up to the shore of the lake. Get down on your knees and look into the water. There you will see the eyes of the Black Wolf."
