Inktober 2019 Day 13: Ash

Today's Prompt:

Ash falls upon a desolate land, burying settlements and landmarks alike in a thick film that saps color and memory from the land.

Was this phenomena a sudden onset?

The result of a disaster? The work of dark magic? Does the ash have any special properties?

Heroes ashes

The Circle of Heroes was built to honor the greatest individuals of Archana. These statues also serve as their graves. When the hero dies, they are cremated and their urn goes inside the hollow in the base of their statue.
