Artist's Description

I’ve been wanting to re-render this scene in a rectangular format for a long, long time. Last time I tried, I tried rendering it to disk as a .psd file at 6,000 × 4,500 pixels. The render took 28 days and 7 hours and then failed. This time, I rendered at 4,000 × 3,000 pixels and it only took about 80 hours and looks pretty damn good to me.
Created in Bryce 6.3 and Rendered in Bryce 7.1

The story . . .
Twin Tales Conrad
Twin Tales

Part III
Glowing with Eldritch power, the paired Goblets of Arandenor the Wise, give guaranteed protection against any poison. Unfortunately, they did nothing to stop the two of us getting getting very, very drunk, on just a single Decanter of Grendeenian Moon wine.
Well, we had good reasons for celebrating.
I was free, I was King and Sonia, the love of my life, was my Queen.
Who could believe that it had only been 24 hours since I had awoken dazed and confused, in the lowest dungeons, chained to the corpse of Yohan my dearest friend . . .
. . .
Much had happened in that short time.
Against all chance, I found my way out of that dungeon and confronted Conrad in his chambers, prior to the service that would have made Sonia his wife.
Conrad, knew full well that I could always best him in a fight, so caved in immediately on seeing me. His face white as he fell to his knees and confessed all.
Sending guards to apprehend his accomplices Shoan and Velten, I ordered another to remain to ensure that my brother did not leave his chambers until I called for him.
Hurrying off, I managed to get my wrist bandaged and make myself presentable for the ceremonies that were to follow.
After they were over and Sonia was at last my wife, I ordered for Conrad to be brought forth to face the assembled court over his treacherous and traitorous conduct.
The guards returned without him, it seems that he had found a way to escape the justice he was due.
Always the coward, Conrad had taken the easy way out.
He had taken his own life.
