Null and Void

A small child, Null, wanders about on a lark, Then encountering a forest, deep and dark. He finds ruins about, of a temple old, And seeks to explore, perhaps in search of gold. Instead of treasure, Null finds a small creature, Void. A spinning whirl, its own magicks employed. Void follows Null, its curiosity piqued, As deeper into the ruins, the Null child sneaked. What old gods had been here, Null did not know, As creatures of evil out of the shadows did flow. But to Null's surprise, his following pet could protect, Just one touch to the shadows, and Void's power would deflect. Deeper into the ruins, Null continued to creep, Finding altars and ciphers, puzzles with complexity steep. And now your skills are needed, these puzzles to solve, To help Null in his journey, and the old magicks dissolve.
