by Sean Meaney

"Sagat! Come see! It is as the old map said. The hecatomb!" deth-hur looked up from his excavations. A gleam of madness came over his eyes.
"at last we shall overthrow the filthy thyatians." Sagat the black clapped his hands to get the attention of his underlings.
"quickly, the altar of earthen hands! We shall raise a million mummies this very evening and they shall march across thyatis!" cloaked acolytes pulled aside the drapes of the tent to reveal there in the dark shelter a tangled mass of hands on a timber litter draped in a blood silk veil in the heart of the tent of Sagat.
"let it begin!" the altar glowed in a necrotic purple as a million mummified corpses rose from their ancient slumber.
