But I wrote over a thousand words again!  Finally!

100 (or 97) Word Excerpt:

There was only one thing that had to be prepared for the rituals that night – the altar.  Compared to the altars in the temples, the Is Ryg one was vastly different.  The temple altars were grotesque.  They consisted of a metal grate suspended over coals, and the sacrifices offered on them consisted of everything from animals to harvest goods to humans.  Humans were rare, though.  Very rare.  Most of the human sacrifices in Kysis took place in Stygh, not Kr Hef.

The Is Ryg altar was a simple, square, stone overlaid with a fine, woven cloth.
