Background: Font color:
Mars is bright tonight. Beyond his light shines Nemesis, the star of Revenge, twinkling in her triumph. The scales of fortune have tipped once again. The wheel of luck groans in her turn.
I see the warrior constellation in the sky as it fades into obscurity, making room for the constellation that nearly always follows: the maiden of grief. She sobs into her hands, a pitiful, heartbroken mother. Never before have I seen the skies this changeable: a great event has taken place tonight, and the sky runs dark with blood as many new souls soar into the depths of the galaxy. Sighing, I sling my bow over my shoulder and turn into the forest, fearful of what I might find in my old home, my old haunt.
