Fit for a king

The tomb is a large circular room, with walls covered in colourful artwork. The room itself, however, is empty with the exception of a large Jade burial suit, which looks to be the only thing of value. The ground is stone, very evenly polished as if someone had taken a lot of time to sand it to perfection. It catches my eye because most floors are more rough in these old tombs. There are small engravings set in a circular pattern around the jade suit. The suit itself is lying on a stone pedestal, but the tomb holds nothing else. No treasure, no possessions… just that strangely polished floor.

You can find the full story in the Grave Robbers anthology by James Ward Kirk.
