The Golden Shadow




A story of the gods, from the creaters of The God Beneath the Sea.

Across the continents of the ancient world wandered the Storyteller, enchanting all who heard him with his wondrous tales of the gods. He longedfor a glimpse of the all-powerful deities of his stories, and listened eagerly to those who had experiences such encounters. And interwoven with his journey is the story of Heracles - a magnificent story with all the intense drama and high tragedy of the Greek Myths.
