The madcap minstrel Tyrall first performed this frenetic dance tune before the court of Duke Faenkund, a performance that literally brought down the house. The minstrel’s unearthly music somehow called forth the frenzied tempest spirit Pavanus, which leveled the palace. Hundreds died.
Since that disaster, arrogant bards and sorcerers have occasionally attempted the wild tune, believing they could tame the destructive storm spirit. To date, all anyone has achieved is to rain destruction upon themselves.
