The Dead Ones
In the untold eons of man’s existence we have always acknowledged the ancient powers that dwell in the eternal darkness between worlds. For when we no longer sacrifice as they demand and forget the rituals and customs that appease these forces there is a price.
They release the Dead Ones.
When the Dead Ones come there are no drums of war, no bugles that call legions to battle. A whisper on the winds, perhaps a coldness where no cold belongs, and a howling of animals are the only calling cards that history records.
In the dark of the moon when the Dead Ones come old people die, the weak grow sick and gray streaks stain the hair of children. To hear them brings madness, to see them brings pain and to touch them means a quick and agonizing death. Stone cracks, iron rusts and crops wither when they roam the lands, and where once laughter and life ruled only bones and dust remain.
The Dead Ones come when we ignore our superstition, when we laugh into the Abyss, when we think that we are the rulers of creation. The Abyss does not like to be denied.
Twice they have come that history records.
First they came to a race of giants – a golden age of industry and philosophy sent crashing into ruin. Only the most powerful Primordial Titan survived whimpering in horror, to spend eternity in the darkness guarding the skulls of his dead race.
Second they appeared to a race of men, one of the first to emerge into the light of reason. But the Dead Ones came and all but obliterated them from memory. A small group survived and having learned their lesson embraced the darkness and began a century of evil and ritual to appease the dwellers in the void. They founded a foul and depraved city, YS and summoned many noxious things into our world.
But all was not lost…
A sect of warriors and scientists, The Illuminati found a way to hold the Dead Ones at bay. They discovered the Herald of the Dead Ones, the Inquisitor and destroyed him. They took his accursed mask, his connection to the void, and bound in cold iron it was left in YS as the city was sunk beneath the waves by science and sorcery. Freed from the fear of the void man could now live in peace and our mighty civilizations grew and flourished.
The Dead Ones faded from memory, but the rituals and superstitions performed to appease them were still practiced, primarily in the fall of the year during the harvest season. Some believed these rituals kept them away but others knew the truth…without their Herald, the Inquisitor and his mask, The Dead Ones could not rise to heed the voids call. They slept dead but undying in their hidden temple guarded by an ancient serpent. But over the long years of peace the rituals were forgotten and man turned his back on superstition and fear – the legend of the Dead Ones and their terrible vengeance had all but faded from memory.
The Blood Night
During the horrors of the Blood Night when the beasts of the NETHERWORLD were released on the earth the Illuminati battled to turn back the darkness. At last they were victorious and the sun returned but the price was a vast depletion of their powers. The noxious city of YS long held below the waves rose once again freeing Banshees and other twisted nightmares to hunt once more.
But worst of all, the mask of the Inquisitor, the Herald of the Dead Ones, was lost. Now some say a new Herald has risen and soars the night with flocks of Banshees watching the cities of men. If the Herald has returned, then he will report to the ancient powers that dwell in the eternal darkness between worlds. He will tell them that the rituals have been forgotten and a time of reckoning must come.
And they will release the Dead Ones. ….
There have been reports of a whisper on the winds, perhaps a coldness where no cold belongs, and a strange howling of animals….
A weird temple has been found in an ancient burial ground where no temple was before… and there is dust that covers everything near it…
Go now into the Temple my children and if your hair should turn gray….
The Dead Ones have returned!
