Worship the Horned Beast and feast on the flesh of the innocent. Drive the weak before you as you wreak havoc upon the land and sky. The ashes of the old gods will choke the wretched survivors as we march towards our inevitable decent in to the abyss. The endless void will welcome you and transform your earthly core to darkness. Hear the cloven hooves clatter amongst the bones to the cacophony of our coming.
