You speak of the ones Who come with the fire. In darkness or daylight, Who walk when least expected. Yes, whispers of them have reached us Even this far, Across all the lands. Cloaked in the quiescent shroud of night, Death forever in their wake. Born of…

It’s been a while since I came here. I wouldn’t have you think that it was difficult or long or painful, or that I’d fallen into purgatory along the way or anything. No, the whole thing was rather quick and clean, just as you’d imagine it. I was happy it…
