Milk Eternal

Legend says there was once a land that flowed with milk and honey. Greedy warriors came in search of conquest, glory, and spoil. They cared not for the people nor their way of life. Consumed by their lusts the barbarians hunted the rivers to their source till they found the ancient sanctuary paved with gold. In this most peaceful place were legendary artifacts of every sort, but chief among them were the vessels of jade and gold that flowed with milk eternal. From the sanctuary ran rivers of milk and honey throughout all the land and the people were nourished. The warriors did not come to honour this place, but to plunder and steal. After taking every morsel of value, they destroyed that place and left the land in ruins. At least that’s what the legend says . . .
