The Tomb of the Kings

On a great plain of grass live many tribes of nomads, horse-worshippers who carry many treasures. In the middle of the plain stands their holiest place, the Tomb of the Kings.

It is a group of four statues of monumental size, now greatly overgrown, said to be of four ancient kings. The tomb is said to be underneath the statues. In the nomads' hour of greatest danger, they believe, the statues will split open. Then the four kings, and their herds of mighty horses, will wake and ride into battle.

An alternate belief holds that the statues themselves are the kings, turned into stone by magic.
