A Shadow of a Man

In the days after the Empire fell, when the magicians and barbarians went to war over the ruins and tore the land apart with sorcery, a great wizard was at last overwhelmed by his enemies at a tower in the grey mountains.

He could not die, or so the stories said, so they bound him upon the top of the tower and left him facing the wind, without food or water or company.

The wind blew and little-by-little, he was worn away, like a cliff by the sea until all that was left of him was a shadow.
