B: Book - The Art of the Ancient Empire

“Art of the Ancient Empire?” Nimble asked.

“Hmm? Old Empire. It’s be Ancient if the word ended with “a’tgh”. Without it, it just means old.” Feris answered.

Nimble dropped the book back onto the table. "This is the crap Annihilus, High Priest of Set, Bringer of Doom to the Eastern Sea, and Great Fang of the Slithering Horde kept in his secret closet?”

“Probably because the Old Empire’s art was singularly focused on both eroticism and torture. Usually together. I really wouldn’t recommend flipping through it.”

"Is it worth anything?"

"Yes... but with so much of this crap, do we want to sell it to anyone who would buy it?"

"That's a point. On the other hand, it might help us figure out who else belongs to that serpent death cult."

A number of my maps for the A to Z Challenge are in the form of geomorphs. This one happens to be a corner geomorph.


  1. Erotic torture? Sounds like very fine old art.

  2. Sooo... it's 50 shades of Snakes?... :D (Sorry couldn't resist)
