And the Wanderer came with a shiny and cold body
The flame of Tartarus burned in his eyes
He waved his bony hand -
and the incompetents of the sinful land howled
He sent a beam of incinerating light into the crowds of Babylon
And the lands were filled with the screams and gnashing of teeth, of those who do not know what they are doing
The hearts of the weak trembled from the tread of steel
And they saw the true punishment without love and hatred
The pig stables caught fire and the heavens were covered with the stench of sin
And then the wicked prayed: "Why are you punishing us, submissive and poor?!"
And the stranger said in a voice of steel: "He who has defiled the child entrusted to me will fall from all the pestilence of the Cain family, and there will be no salvation for anyone on earth or in heaven"
And another howling howl swept through the lands and forests
But a false stranger came out and said: "This is the child that you are nurturing, and I am no worse his parent than you are, and I was before your coming"
All two-legged cattle rushed into his skirts as if there was a True Salvation there,
But the True One said: "Faith is not measured in the course of time and not in a sea of drops, but your words are empty because there is no righteousness in them, but only one greed and rusting malice"
And He cast the false stranger into the abyss of fire and continued to incinerate the sinful and negligent seed.
And then the Lazy One appeared, defiling everything and everything with his word, but not the herald of Light and purification, and he said:
"I do not care about your quarrels-big and small, and I allow you to gnaw each other"
But the Wanderer cut off his sting: "If there is no concern for our quarrels, then why did you show your abomination to the world and it did not become the reptiles of the swamp to squirm at my feet"
And he cut the stupid and greedy creature in half. Let the hordes of the wicked devour it, for what has come out of the mud will return to the mud.
With them fell those who lived but did not live, because with the True Light they are not visible at all
The children of ugly idols are stubborn, but the time for Patience and Forgiveness has passed
For who will avenge the torment of the True Child?!
The idols of the wood were melted and now they are fresh and harmless water
The cleansing light will absorb all the filth of the insane
For who will extinguish the flame in His eyes?
The storm is coming...
A horrific massacre.
The hordes will leave nothing but ruins behind.
A dying empire.
Rome is still standing, but the signs of decomposition are becoming stronger.
Whoever you start the campaign with, the AI will receive enhanced assistance.
Resist the onslaught of the savage hordes for as long as you can!
The brutality of battles goes to a new level
On the bones...
Build your state on the remains of a decrepit empire
May the gods protect you...
