All roads may lead to Valespire but none visit Black Spur. Indeed, all but one were built miles around it, isolating the area by High Church decree. The tellers speak of the Spur's evil but never its history, which was scoured from the great scrolls and forbidden to the people of the Realm. What terrible secrets are sealed there, and why has the Church suddenly taken new interest?
