Ten thousand years ago, faced with extinction, the terrified leaders of Nidal heard whispers in their minds—promises of salvation for their nation if only they’d submit their people’s bodies and souls to perpetual servitude. Those leaders’ assent transformed them into conduits for Zon-Kuthon, the god of envy and pain, and has sealed Nidal’s fate to this day.
