Book
One: Ordered by Gods
CHAPTER SEVEN:
Hall of Frescoes
After wiping away the grimy black moss, a bewildering
mural is revealed. The frescoes are made with colourful triangular tiles of
various sizes – some, such as those used to write out mathematical equations,
are extremely small delicate (Most of these equations use the Bakare
number system). There are numerous vignettes, but it is impossible to determine,
in this short period, the significance of the order and whether it has any
meaning. In no particular order, the vignettes depict:
• Giants battling Dwarves
• Giants battling Stone
Druids
• Giants battling Scalyfolk
• Giants battling Nephilim
• Giants battling Theoneans (humans, most in garish masks)
• Giants battling one another
• Giants building the
Devourer
• Giants gathering Brutish
slaves
• Giants with Dwarven slaves
• Giants torturing and sacrificing countless slaves, some, to
their gods
o The Giants seem to derive
some sort of power from this process
• Giants torturing and sacrificing Nephilim
• Giants working with Stone Druids
o Stone Druids delivering
one of their own unto the Giants
• Giants battling something resembling a shining circle, designed
in a spiral of tiles, annotated with a large number of equations
• Giants creating undead
• Dygranog (the
peak from which Axes Bithtat
emerges) and the Three Pillars
are the most unmistakable features of the background, also with accompanying
equations
• Detailed accounts of torture and dismemberment
• Mathematical equations
• Star charts rim the ceiling
