Six-Fingered Scion

• Red Sky • Mythos • Ebét •

The Prodigal Particle of the Living God left Ebét three hundred years ago to wander the far wastes. Six score years later it returned with dark prophecies of machine-reason-worshipping republics in Dopotamia, the Land of Two Rivers.

Its body and brain were dismantled, studied, and punished in a purpose-built pyramid. Priests of the Living God toiled for years to divine if it had gone mad or seen true.

The final conclusion was that the far-off primitives would never convince the Clockwork God to help them.
