In a land built upon the foundations of magic, darkness has defeated the light. The ancient hero set on a pedestal of prophetic victory was killed, and evil flooded into the realm in a great rush. Runir sleeps in an eternal night, the sky and sun veiled by crimson mist and black clouds. The people are slaves to darkness, living under the tyrannous rule of the Oppressive One. Rebellion is unthinkable, but not dead... It lives.

The chapter in my eyes is a little too long with too much detail and small things that it gets boring in my eyes, just my two cents

I don't know if you want grammatical corrections but Lor and Loden should be capitalized and through the story there are letters mistakenly capitalized.

Just a question, what era like time is this? Is there technology like lifts and skyscrapers or is it more ancient like?

Oh, sorry, one more thing, in the middle there is a bit of dialogue which is not quotasized

Great story! A-lot of detail, just if I could just point out two things.
One, the first line I think is superfluous, that can be inferred from later in the chapter, and my grandmother, who was a legal editor told me that unlike in movies, you can;t write in books "X time later", it should be a real sentence.
Great job, I'll continue reading!
