  1. Sir Walter R’lyeh says:

    In every generation, there are those who do not heed the warnings — to their eternal regret. Venture not into the hidden places, for they are hidden for a reason. Cruel, ancient creatures sleep under the veil of shadows. Wake them at your own peril, and do not attempt to venture beyond the ice wall that encircles our world, lest you bring upon yourself grave misfortune, and doom us all!
