The world slowly festers as the gods have abandoned their duties. Seeds are slow to sprout. Seasons are slow to change. Each uncertain dawn rattles into being like the last few coins into a beggar's bowl. As the wheel of time grinds to a halt, mortals are faced with a terrible ultimatum - a revolt against the indifference of Heaven or a slow but inevitable slide toward extinction. When the leaders of nations meet to discuss uniting in the face of crisis, discord and betrayal sends the world spiraling into a bitter war. Hungering armies devour swaths of of food and supplies even as the harvest dwindles every year. Youths barely old enough to lift a spear lay slain on the battlefield even as fewer and fewer children are born. Humanity seems intent on consuming itself on the brink of the end of the world. But a candle burns brightest just before it goes out, and the greatest heroes are forged in the darkest eras. In the fires of purgatory, a dying prince embraces the heart of a dead god. In the frozen wastes, a desperate mother offers her child to a slumbering demiurge. Suffering is but a whetstone that hones an iron will into a blade. The gods have closed their eyes to mortal plight - strike them down while they are blind. Atair tur kemul te assal tur shalash, muod ataissi shinna Sunder heaven and shatter earth, until all the gods lay slain

This is where I test all of my scripts and graphics. Thus, many pages will be very, very broken, so turn back now, if you value your sanity. You have been warned!

Your writing remains top shelf quality in the sense that it's able to communicate a wealth of characterization, backstory, and plot with a surprisingly minimalist exchange of dialogue. I am both incredibly entertained and mildly jealous that you can just whip something like this from the void of ennui. ...also, yeah, if I had a boss like that, I'd be driven to dramatic homicide too.

Get back into writing, reading, and drawing! Remind myself that there's more to life than the endless cycle of paycheck-bills-paycheck-bills.

I would like to invoke plausible deniability.

Wait, you mean it wasn't obvious? You can even see Kiel's left hand on blue...>_>

Aaand, that's my cue to hide all the evidence, or I'll never hear the end of it XD

That was the original joke, yes. Then I thought...eh, why not traumatize anyone foolish enough to click the schmuck bait? I'm sorry, I will regret everything and apologize in the morning when I'm no longer suffering from caffeine induced insanity.

I blame two hours of sleep and in the last twenty four hours and two cans of Red Bull in the last two hours. Luckily, I'm still sane enough to put it somewhere I can delete when I wake up tomorrow morning and regret everything.

You're more than welcome! I'm glad it at least came close to doing that epic description justice, and I can't wait to see how the RP develops.
