It’s a short story in a sword-and-sorcery world.
A desperate merchant asks you for help.
He needs you to make sure that an old, abandoned lighthouse outside of town shines its beacon for this one night again!
The merchant awaits his ship back, and it is already near. But not near enough to arrive in the harbor before sunset. Because of contracts it being in the harbor before the sun rises again makes the difference between wealth and ruin.
The lighthouse is abandoned for years, ever since the former keeper has vanished. Without it the waters are too treacherous to navigate in the dark.
Some minor repairs will be necessary, but that’s not really a problem. But is someone interested in the merchant’s ruin? And what has happened to the former keeper in the first place? Is there any truth to the superstitions and rumors about ghosts and monsters?
Also, dark clouds gather in the evening sky.
