Go To

You’re the strongest warrior there is, and I know my death won’t slow you down. If anything, you put the head of what killed me on a spike!

That the acolyte was already dead hadn't deterred Prakordian - in fact, it made things easier, for a dead man had few defences. Sorcery had forced the lips to open and speak, condemning the tattered lungs to draw breath and the pulped brain to remember. On the stone floor of the temple, the forest of chains sighing above and the torn banners still smouldering, Prakordian had forced out the truth.

"Everybody wants a happy ending, right? But it doesn't always roll that way. Maybe this time. I'm hoping if you play this back, it's in celebration. I hope families are reunited, I hope you get it back, and somewhat of like a normal version of the planet has been restored. If there ever was such a thing. God, what a world. Universe, now. If you told me 10 years ago that we weren't alone, let alone, you know, to this extent, I wouldn't have been surprised but come on, you know?

Part of the journey is the end. What am I even tripping for, everything is gonna work out exactly the way it's supposed to. I love you 3000."

"I regret that we cannot meet in person, but by the time you hear this, I shall have been dead for over three thousand years."
Blake's 7, "City At The Edge Of The World"

"I am but a lowly Chinko language slave. If you are listening to me, I most likely do not exist, as we may have been exterminated like many other races by the gas drones of our conquerors."
