The Ferryman                                                             by Deran Wright

Charon, from the Greek charopós, meaning 'fiery eyes' was the ferryman of Hades. Tasked with ferrying the newly deceased across the river Styx, the ferryman charged an obol for passage. Those who could not pay were doomed to wander the shores of Hades for a hundred years.

Only the mightiest of heroes were able to pass unscathed and return alive.

The Ferryman awaits...
