GOLGOTHA - PART SEVEN
GOLGOTHA - PART FIVE
While the Beast’s horde makes its final assualt upon the Holy City, the Ronin hangs on the point of death, crucified in sacrifice to God.
His fate, as well as the fate of Parnassus, the godhead and the universe itself, all now dangle above the pit of hell that lies at the vertex of the cross.
Only in the soils of suffering may the seeds of redemption be sown.
GOLGOTHA - PART FOUR
In the city of tiers, at the very heart of the godscape, lie buried all the secrets of Being. And somewhere beneath the city, entombed for centuries, lies the power source the Ronin quests for.
But in this city of knights and priests, besieged on all sides by the forces of the Beast, can things really be as they appear?
The answer to all questions lies with the one known only as ‘The Archon’.
GOLGOTHA - PART THREE
Before the walls of the holy city of Parnassus, the Ronin must face the great Beast. Will he find redemption, damnation or something else entirely? And what is the significance of the strange city, planted atop the corpse of a long-dead God?
The godhead holds its secrets close. Only through sorrow and strife shall they be revealed.
GOLGOTHA - PART TWO
The godscape begins to open before the Ronin, revealing horror, mystery and gruesome fascination. And in the revelations that follow come the outlines of a wild and dangerous reckoning.
The coming of the Beast draws nigh.
GOLGOTHA - PART ONE
On a dark hillside, a hundred million years ago, a man was led to a place called Golgotha, there to die for the sins of mankind.
But what if he had not died? What if Christ had been saved?
Even now, when the universe lies dying and final darkness closes in, the repercussions of such a thing can still be felt.
"To manifest great compassion. To act for the sake of man. Never to be outdone in the way of the Samurai."
At the end of everything, without hope, without fear, the last of the Samurai wanders the cold remains of the cosmos in search of redemption.
This is the tale of the Ronin.
