Never Lose Your Stride.
I am Nothing. I am the Darkness Before Dawn. I am the Shadow in the Night. I am the Watcher. I am the Watched. When man stares up at the starless skies, I am what stares back. I am Everything, and I am Nothing. I am the first thing you see when you take your first breath, and the last image in your mind when you breath your last. I am the darkness in every man’s heart. I am the fear of the unknown. I am the Hated One. I am the Defiler and the Defiled. I am Formless, and I am Eternal.
By far the strangest entity we have encountered thus far, The Void defies all explanation. Its true nature, motives and abilities are unknown, and it speaks of things beyond mortal comprehension.
Only time will tell if The Void will become yet another obstacle for Barsch to overcome, or if it will prove insurmountable. Read Awakening to find out more about The Void and its influence on our unlucky protagonist.
Thanks for listening, stay tuned for the next story quote coming next week!
And remember, even if you are facing a being of unimaginable power, Never Lose Your Stride!
I am Guardian… and I will save you from yourself!
There are those who do evil for the sake of their ambitions, and there are those that do evil for the fun of it.
And then there are those who do evil whilst thinking that they are doing good.
Guardian, a Station A.I., belongs to the latter group.
Over-protective of his ‘children’ to a fault, he becomes a serious threat to Barsch and co. With complete control over his domain and a lack of empathy for those he labels ‘threats’, he is not a foe that can be defeated easily.
Will Barsch overcome this trial? Or will Guardian succeed in his desire to elimitate everything that does not belong? Read Awakening to find out what happens!
Thanks for listening, our next quote comes from an entity that is somewhat hard to define, both physically and morally. Look forward to his cryptic words!
And remember, even if a malicious artificial intelligence is trying to kill you, Never Lose Your Stride!
I am the saviour of mankind.
He who knows the limits of the body and mind is much more likely to break through them. But in doing so, does he venture down a path that was not meant to be trod?
The Madman seeks perfection. The Madman seeks salvation.
The Madman seeks you. And if he finds you…
He will make you mad too.
The world of Awakening is not a kind place. It is not filled with heroes and saviours. Those who dwell in the darkness seek only to destroy the light.
The Man With Dead Eyes. The Man With Crimson Eyes. The Madman.
Three dangerous individuals. Three threats facing Barsch. Three threats that would kill him without mercy or hesitation.
The Man With Dead Eyes will kill you believing that you are vermin that needs to be exterminated.
The Man With Crimson Eyes will kill you believing that he is superior to you in every way.
But The Madman will plunge a blade into your heart fully believing that he is saving you…
Which is the most dangerous? That is for you to find out.
Thank you for listening, our next quote comes from yet another dangerous individual, although he has far better reasons that those listed above. Look forward to it!
And remember, even if you fall to madness, Never Lose Your Stride!
You are the failure. You are the reject. Broken toys need to be destroyed. That’s what He said… and His word is law!
-The Man with Crimson Eyes
There are good people in Awakening. There are bad people. But the Man with Crimson Eyes is arguably the worst.
Malice, hatred, insanity and a superiority complex combine to form something that never should have existed.
He is not to be understood. He is not to be reasoned with. He is not to be fought against.
He is to be feared.
Thank you for listening. The next quote is from The Madman, look forward to it!
And remember, even if your mind is shattered beyond repair, Never Lose Your Stride!
Take it, and show the world your fury! Take it, and lose yourself to the violence!
The Screaming Blade. The Instigator of Violence. Flesh-ripper. The Wolfblade.
The Black Blade.
Lanista, the sword which will lead Barsch to ruin. The blade which he hates. The violence that he fears. The bloodlust that he craves.
Only time will tell if Barsch has the strength of will to suppress his hidden temperament, or if it will consume his sanity and let loose his dark desires.
Together they will charge. Together they will howl. Together they will scream.
Thank you for listening.
And remember, Never Lose Your Stride, no matter how many foes you must destroy!
“I will kill them. I will destroy them. I will show them oblivion. I will break their bodies and devour their souls. They will never find peace. They will never be reborn. They will never find salvation. I will end them, and they will never rise again!”
-The Man with Dead Eyes
The less I say about this individual, the better. Trust me, you will thank me later.
The next quote comes from the screaming blade, Lanista, look forward to it!
When faced with the Man with Dead Eyes… It is ok to lose your stride…
Run fast, run far, and pray that He does not find you…
We meet again, daughter of none…
-The Woman with Sapphire Eyes
Another mysterious figure. Another cryptic message. Who is this woman who claims to have met Alza before? Is she from Alza’s past? Or does she know Alza from somewhere else?
And why is she a “Daughter of None”? Questions abound, but answers are few. If you desire to know the identity of this strange woman, then I implore you to read Awakening (only $0.99!).
Our next quote comes from a truly fearsome individual. His name is unknown, but the terror he inspires is very real. Look forward to it, if you dare…
And remember, Sons and Daughters of None, Never Lose Your Stride!
He’s not ready yet
-The Man with Emerald Eyes
A stranger with green eyes, watching the world below from his lofty perch. Who is this man? If every human (aside from Barsch, Kingston and Alza) is supposed to be cryogenically frozen, where does he come from?
Questions abound regarding the man with emerald eyes. Is he a friend or foe? What is the true meaning behind his cryptic words? Who is he talking to?
And what is Barsch not ready for?
These questions will be answered in time, but will you be ready for the answers? Read Awakening to find out who the man with emerald eyes is, and what he has in store for our would-be heroes…
Thanks for listening, our next quote will come from another unfamiliar face, but look forward to it all the same!
And remember, Never Lose Your Stride…even if you do not feel ready for what comes!
