->Near dawn of the second night, the last remaining sorcerers gathered in the most defensible of the caverns. As they prepared their wards for the coming assault, the stone beneath their feet began to tremble. A ferocious screaming arose, as if the [[ReligionOfEvil Baali]] had mustered the very [[TheLegionsOfHell legions of the infernal]] to sweep the [[MurderInc Children of Haqim]] from the world. The judges braced their spears; the sorcerers gathered their energies.
->Then blood began to flow into the cavern. [[RiversOfBlood Only a trickle at first, a few drops seeping down through the tunnels, gradually becoming a steady flow that left the surviving Children ankle deep in cooling crimson]]. Then footfalls: light, almost noiseless, slow, as if those of a child tentatively making its way down the steep passages.
->Then [[UndeadChild a tiny figure, blackened and charred, its eyes burned from its skull]], emerged into the flickering light of the single torch that a ghoul had managed to keep burning. "[[TerrifyingRescuer Haqim sends me]]," it whispered. "I am [[TimeAbyss ur]]-[[HumanoidAbomination Shulgi]]. And I am of the Blood."
