Bastille Key


Long ago, a bastille lord, driven to desperation by the rapid spread of curse across the land, began to see each subject as a carrier of the blight, and locked them away in droves.
This entire bastille was turned into a prison, and left abandoned to rot its prisoners.

      And FYI, of course, the real keys to the Bastille, two in particular (Mount Vernon's and George Washington Masonic National Memorial's) of the approximately 400 Bastille keys thought to have been made. www.LibertyKey.US
