I'm not sure there are any redeeming qualities in this one. I think the last line hits it on the head. It's almost like I was handed an overly generic, staple, cookie-cutter, bland, stereotypical wizard, then given some totally useless information. When given the information I looked up and said "Whut?" then I was told: Oh... Just act like Gandalf.

Titans are cool. I don't see the word 'Apogee' nearly as often as I would like to, so kudos to that. It feels like someone threw Lord of the Rings into a blender with some extremely watered down Greek mythos, then poured this interesting piece into a sippy cup. Meh.
Nice one. I have a bit of trouble with the part where it assumes players are signing an oath into a rebel order and then pick up a stone involuntarily. It's not a huge issue, it can easily be remedied by providing a proper hook into the rebel base. As for the stone, I'm actually certain at least one PC would try to pick it up. I like this. Nice and concise, with lots of room to expand. Good work.
I liked most of it, with the exception of the very last line. I got a good visual of Huran and his armor, his precious armor. However, I don't think his dying words would be enough to add a lightning strike. Especially dying peacefully, but not all tales need to be tragic.. Solid submission!
I love the title on this one. Though one has to wonder why a Necromancer would summon a Demon? Makes me think of undead infused with Demonic essences, powerful and unstable, hungering for the souls and flesh of the living. This a great oldie, thanks for dragging it out of its grave, Cheka.
