A King, a Prophet and God’s Son… (a true story)
There once was a place so magical it drew the eye of many religions. It was nothing but a hill, in the center of an old city. But everyone seemed to want it for theirs. Wars were fought over it, quests were run because of it, religions were begun because of it, and the world would end because of it. Light and dark fought over it. For the souls of all humanity.
It became a story of self-fulfilling prophecy. Humanity worked to build the very thing that would destroy it.
Piece by piece, it all came together. And all that could be done was delay the inevitable.
Some fought to save the relics of their hope and faith. Some fought to prove that their faith was the most worthy of the many. And some worked to bring about the end, the darkness. Perhaps they were looking to create a place for good by ending humanity’s reign? Who knows.
Myth and history worked together to mystify the hill in the old city and the voice of reason was helpless in the rage and obsession of the many. All that was left was to let light and dark battle for the hill, in the old city.
And they would not be denied their day.
