In the land of Thinis, where the old gods are said to live, the False God
has awakened. Its looming, heteromorphic vessel was resurrected to sink
the world to the depths of the ocean. It will bring extinction to all
children of men, and salvation to all beasts of the land, sky, and sea.
For the children of men who spilled too much of the blood of life,
it promises only cruel retribution.

The False God must be defeated before the world sinks into a watery
grave. To this end, the children of men have erected pillars of light upon
the land. Thinis, Malum, Septen, and Llium were utterly destroyed.
Those lands have vanished from this world. Yet even still, the False God
stands. And soon, a flood aptly named Despair will drown this world.

The children of men fled to the depths of the earth, beyond the sight of
the False God, beyond the embrace of the sacred sun, and beyond the
reach of the waters of Despair. They swore a fervent oath of revenge
against the surface world, ruled by beasts, and against their tormentor,
the False God.
