17 The Chaos Manifesto vs Iron Sleet #9

"To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times."

“The Consortium”

Shadowy figures scuttle into the night, acting out Rogue Trader Zulfiqar’s commands. Each wretched soul a ball of clay from which to create.  Each an opportunity to augment, disfigure and mutilate in her name. Every one of them will be transformed till he becomes these Moons only hope.

“I wish to survive as I have done for the hundreds of years before.  I will throw countless bodies into the machine. I will pit both sides against the other and stab them in the back when the opportunity arises. I will chew off my own leg in order to survive. It is foolhardy to think that one can push another into a corner and not expect a fight.

With the percipience of war upon us, we are gifted with the opportunity to experience a new beginning; unadulterated pain like never before. I wait with open arms for a life without pain is one not worth living. Countless souls will be lost while many others will be haunted by the atrocities. There will not be victims in my Consortium. If you want to be the ghoul in the night that knocks at pathetic doors then follow me into the void.”
