Pilgrym teaser

Some things were swept aside for the moment. The forge re-ignited. Ancient relics and ornament cured overnight and pushed out in a feverish hurry.

The floor of Terra will be filled.

Gold, Oil and Bone.

Metal smell in the air, scorched engine oil and burned ozone.

  1. Gold, oil and bone… those three things almost sum up Terra, the world of the Golden Throne, a living machine-creature of flesh and arcane technology that seems to permeate all Terra, the gilt and anointed temple world sustained by and revering sacrificial death, the bone — either of the astronomican choirs or the Emperor’s endless psychic agony, all of this gold rotting away, the holy oils used to mask the foul scent of sweat, blood and most of all of formalin and slowly decaying fleshe…
