The redness of the clouds grew stronger. There below, in the centre of a vast plain, lay the Crater of Death, stretching more then a mile wide from rim to rim. From the centre rose an immense iron tower. Out of an opening at its top raged a tornado of red flame. The glow lit the entire terrain revealing a lifeless landscape. Violent electrical storms raged in the black clouds that emanated from the monstrous tower.
