Known to mortals as The Ancients, they guarded the Earth. As the world turned, they controlled the elements and were the givers of law. This was the faith of the people.
Steven Cargo’s curiosity drove him on as he made his pilgrimage. Days passed until he faced the final climb.
He asked The Ancients the eternal questions, “Why am I here? Is this all there is?”
He awaited an answer never to come. From above, a great object descended crushing The Ancients beneath.
How could this be? For S. Cargo, this was the fate of many of his kind but surely not The Ancients.
