[Planet name] was a Holy World.
You do not know the true extent of your sin.
Not yet.

In 1999, the Dimension Anomaly fucked us. Hard. No one was spared — it fucked each and every one of us, on all sides of the Ascension Squabble. On that day, what it meant to be a Void Engineer changed.
Woe to those who fuck with us, for we didn't exactly change for the better.
Mage: The Ascension - Convention Book: Void Engineers (Revised)

The God-Machine is slow to react, but implacable when roused.

it's a beautiful day outside
birds are singing, flowers are blooming.
on days like these, kids like you...
Should be burning in hell.

"look. i gave up trying to go back a long time ago. and getting to the surface doesn't really appeal anymore, either. cause even if we do... we'll just end up back here without any memory of it, right? to be blunt... it makes it kind of hard to give it my all. ...or is that just a poor excuse for being lazy...? hell if i know. all i know is... seeing what comes next... i can't afford not to care anymore."

Viggo: John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will... something you know very little about. I once saw him kill three men in a bar... with a pencil. With a fucking... pencil. Then suddenly one day he asked to leave. It's over a woman, of course. So I made a deal with him. I gave him an impossible task. A job no one could have pulled off. The bodies he buried that day laid the foundation of what we are now. And then my son, a few days after his wife died, you steal his car, and kill his fucking dog.
Iosef: Father, I can make this right.
Viggo: Oh? How do you plan that?
Iosef: By finishing what I started.
Viggo: What the... did he hear a fuckin' word I said?
Iosef: [Russian] Dad, I can do this! Please!
Viggo: Iosef, Iosef! Listen! Huh? John will come for you, and you will do nothing, because you can do nothing. So get the fuck out of my sight!

But now his [Treebeard's] long slow wrath is brimming over, and all the forest is filled with it. The coming of the hobbits and the tidings that they brought have spilled it: it will soon be running like a flood; but its tide is turned against Saruman and the axes of Isengard. A thing is about to happen which has not happened since the Elder Days: the Ents are going to wake up and find that they are strong.
Gandalf, ''The Two Towers
