To whomever finds this, know that you risk great harm to both your body and mind if you continue to read on, from the great truth that I will reveal, and the merciless agents that will seek to protect it.
An ancient cabal from the time of the Pharaohs has controlled the flow of events since the very founding of the city.
I’m not sure if it was Overton, Winchester or Jackson that was beholden to the group, but the likelihood of an American president serving such an ancient evil is more than I care to imagine.
Their machinations started with the enclosing of the Gayoso Bayou. A cover story they used to construct secret tombs under the city, complete with machines to pump out the water.
Then, when the Pyramid – their pyramid – was built, they joined their tunnels to it. Just like it was back in ancient Egypt! Their ancient labyrinth was restored, their desire sated, they thankfully slumbered on.
But, something’s gone wrong. The Pyramid is being gutted, and I fear what sort of grave repercussions the populace of our city will face when those near-immortal beings one again stir, and see how we’ve ruined their works.
Growing up in a city named after a ruined one in Egypt, complete with a pyramid of glass and metal, you can’t help but imagine that there’s some kind of ancient conspiracy. It makes everything seem more fantastic, and less like a city with more than its fair share of problems.
