The Demon of Yiddaqqua

No scholar knew the origin of the strange demon that lurked the ruined city of Yiidaqqua and no sorcerer knew the true name that might bind or banish it. But the demon rarely showed itself in an angry mood and would sometimes converse with travellers who took shelter in the crumbling palaces of that once great city, telling tales of heroic warrior-kings who vanquished monsters and treacherous sorcerers.
The demon often spoke of a great treasure in the catacombs beneath Yiidaqqua and graciously offered to lead many a traveller to the hidden trove. But strangely none who searched for these riches ever returned.
