ISdN - Hermes 4 Picture

Sovrani del Nulla - The Lords of Nothing

Dei, Eroi, Santi. Erano i signori del mondo, salvatori dell'umanità, patroni e custodi, esempi di virtù. Ma ora gli uomini li hanno dimenticati, hanno abbandonato i propri miti, spento le sacre aureole, relegato il divino ai margini di una società pragmatica e materialista prossima al deperimento.
L'umanità ha rinunciato all'eternità in favore di una labile contingenza.

Gods, Heroes, Saints. They used to be the Lords of the world, mankind's Saviors, patrons and guardians, pure examples of virtue. But now people have forgotten them, they've left myths behind, put off sacred halos, and relegated the numinous at the edge of a pragmatic and materialistic society on the way of perishment.
Humanity gave up eternity in favor of fleeting contingency
