They are too strong, tool powerful for us mere mortals. They pledged allegiance to gods too vile, to masters too dark.
They have taken our jobs, our homes, our families, our dreams, and trashed them on the altar of Filth.
They have branded us with the shameful iron of the corrupt and we have thus become slaves to their corruption.
They have shattered us around the universe in a diaspora spanning 150 years and 5 continents.
They have driven us to wars we should not have fought, to endeavors we should have blushed with shame to even consider.
You know them. Some are people indeed. But some, most, are daemons lurking in our souls, deep within. The worm is in the fruit sometimes. Many times. All the time.
All is not lost however, dear knights, for as long as you can find a spark of light in you to outgrow the darkness within, we stand a chance. A spark, that’s all it takes. Your loved ones. Childhood memories. Summers. A long-forgotten dream. Whatever brings a smile to your face, some tears to your eyes.
And we will prevail. We must prevail.
Against all odds.
