666 years ago, a war occurred between those who could perform magic, and those who were jealous of it. The side of magic was winning, until a traitor named Cylvan cast a spell, causing all magic to be sealed into a grotto underneath the Nile River's source, and changed reality so being a rich chauvinistic human male replaced magic as the greatest power in the universe. However, in order to cover up how things used to be, The Illuminati were formed in order to promote the ideal that money is power, that women are worthless sex slaves, and that magic is fictional...But a leak in the system occurred when New Zealand granted women their rights, which led to a series of further cracks, and to this day, the Illuminati facade is crumbling more and more...but when, the Illuminati asked themselves, these men who sit in the shadows of power, would the secret lynchpin be removed..
December 21, 2012:An apocalypse?
Cecelia new that this trip up to the Nile's source was a slim chance, but the man swore it would change her career as a writer of the history of belief in magic.
Her little party of 2 reached the source 5 minutes after she said that. Impressive, as far as sources go. Her team, consisting of herself, Professor Whitby, her guide, Khalis, and Tossman, her servant.
Khalis told her to step on the ground, next to where their campsite had just been placed. After doing so, she felt queasy, as if...too late, she fell through the earth itself, and blacked out...
She woke up in what appeared to be a grotto, with pictographs carved on the ground. They translated to the following message:
Place your palm on the ground, she who falleth here, and set the truth free, if you dare. She obeyed, not knowing what she was to unleash...
