SimplyHung: I'm looking to get some opinions on this, and I've noticed folks here to be rather intelligible and genuine. It's the Preface to my 3rd book (though I've only finished one) and the 2nd book in The Balance Trilogy. Preface History was written as it is to protect you. Though it's become more of an unnecessary sheltering. The time has come to awaken from the dream. What is to come may frighten you, but it cannot compare to the horror of its roots. Shocking events tend to be much more so when they conflict with what you thought to be your truthful knowledge. This is not to say that what you have learned of your history is wrong. Rather, it's horribly incomplete. Be warned now, the truth will give you an entirely different perspective on life as we know it. Since the birth of your Biblical savior, your world has been cursed. By that, I do not refer merely to your planet Earth, but rather to the entire mortal plane as you know it and as you do not. Your planet just happens to be one of the particularly targeted ones, among six. You may inquire as to how I know such things. Let us just leave it that I have first-hand witness's recollection of these events. I have observed these events since the beginning, often from afar, but always longing to be able to do more. Though notably powerful, I was unable to prevent the spread of the curse alone. Outnumbering left me outclassed. Others stepped forth to offer assistance, a few by my request, but it was too late for me. I was sealed away, but not before leaving many a legacy. The final result of this curse is soon to come. Those who stepped forth to face it have done so for over two millennia, throughout the course of now six Spirit Cycles. They have bested those harbingers of plague and madness, awaiting the mastermind of this plot to show itself. Soon, all the necessary pieces will come into place, and the stability of existence will be placed on a razor-thin line. As it falls together, all else falls apart. The outcome of an innumerable populous will be left in the hands of but a few, the rest either left to view from afar in madness and instability or entirely oblivious to it all. Before this happens though, it is time you learned how this all came to be. This is the story of the dawn of your dusk, the rising of your downfall. This is your Omega's Alpha.
