About the Book

“Multiply and train those worthy while sacrificing the lesser ones to me. Keep secret and grow strong while keeping your enemies confused and weak. By this covenant, all you are and will ever be is mine to command, so I set you this first task: fill this hall with worthy forces while still maintaining those needed to defend this territory I have provided you. This is the great work to which you will dedicate your lives and the lives of your descendants.” “I name you Empire, which is what you will achieve in my name when you complete this task, and I shall hold you all as treasured children when I send you forth to bring order to the unworthy. To this end, I grant you three boons: this land of sanctuary in which you will grow strong, the secret of soul forged steel to build your industry as you undermine your foe’s development, and two of my pet Wyrms for protection and guidance.” “Never forget that these are not gifts but tools you are to use in a purpose of my devising. Fail me not, or you and your descendants will suffer eternally for my pleasure.”
