There Can Be Only One…
“Here we are, Born to be kings, We're the princes of the universe, Here we belong, Fighting to survive in a war with the darkest powers,” -Queen
Since the beginning of time, humanity has been locked in a death grip. Our nemesis is a Master of the dark arts. He works in concert with the most powerful nursemaids of death and destruction known to man.
Although few in number, they have immense power. They are fearless and have killed many millions. They are silent as ninjas and feared as the most deadly shinobi. Their blades are so sharp you never feel the cut.
These 8 assassins, skilled tacticians in the art of war. They use deception as their primary tool. When you think they are far, they are near. When you believe they are few, there are many.
When you think you know them, they change shape. And when you think they are a stranger, they tell you they are your friend.
The 8 handmaidens of our apocalypse?
- Gula is her name. She is the Mistress of gluttony in all that we consume. It is through her power that you no longer eat to live, but instead live to eat. You will feel a hunger that never ends.
- Luxuria is the goddess of lust and fornication. Her powers are so great that you will sell your soul as she consumes you with desire.
- Avaritia is the beautiful goddess of avarice and greed. She consumes you with everything that glitters like Gollum. You will be left as hollow as a porcupine quill.
- Superbia is the dark Goddess of pride and hubris. Once you fall into her charms you will forever occur.
- Tristitia is the dark all-consuming handmaiden of sorrow and despair. She will chip away at your pride and shroud it with failure and gloom.
- Her name is Ira. You've heard the old saying “Hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned.” Haven't you? Ira is her name. She may forgive you, but she will never forget your name. Suffering and eternal damnation are her game.
- Vanagloria is the alchemist of vanity. Having excessive self-love or pride in your achievements and accomplishments is worthless. Vanity is narcissistic and serves no one other than oneself.
- Acedia Is the queen of slothfulness. Acedia comes in many forms. She works hard at being the epitome of laziness. Embrace her with open arms and she will engulf your mind, body, and soul.
These are the nursemaids, who will relentlessly follow you from the cradle to the grave. There is no escape.
On a pale horse, he rides.
Who is the Leader, who controls these denizens of the dark arts that you cannot deny? It is he who yields the greatest of power of all.
His name is Self and it is on a pale horse that he rides.
How long you will survive depends completely on you. Will you be the one?
