This was my first genuine attempt at something other than a short story or a poem. A short descriptive piece.
Upon the black edifice they pondered. Metallic beasts which they no longer controlled, the realm was tangible now. A land of twilight, indistinguishable from hell, wherein mans mettle should be tested in the roar of the fight between his better angels and his sordid devils. Ignorance would no longer sustain their war of attrition.
