“To those who find this message:
Let this be our testament:

We sought to emulate our father
To break ourselves upon the same anvil
In that, we succeeded
Like him, we were transformed
Thus we were reborn

There are no words in all of Old Terra’s dead tongues
To name the things we have become
And there is no way back from the precipice

To those who find this message:
Do not follow.”

More to come soon — hopefully…
