Greed & Guilt

Sometimes I wish greed didn't control me. Then I remember the gold, gems, and treasures I've discovered. Wouldn't have found any of those if I was a giving man. No siree. It's not even the wealth I desire; it's the thrill of the discovery. The one thing I do regret though is the guilt, and not because I live a thief's life.

The devastation was cataclysmic, destroying everything in a 20 mile radius except the person holding the Grocol Diamond—me.
