At the dawn of civilization, priests and prophets called for great blocks of stone to be brought over vast distances and then inscribed with prayers and parables. The very sight of these towers, ziggurats, and monuments brought all who saw them to their knees. Now moss covers these incredible feats of engineering and unspeakable horrors have taken root within. But the stones have endured. The architects foresaw the coming of the Ancient One and their work may yet hold the key to humanity’s survival. Only those of sufficient courage and skill will be able to unlock the secrets of these ancient wonders!
