|Little People Pt 47 - The Animal Spirits deliver a warning|
The King of Bear's voice bellowed through the air like a thunderclap,
"Kid Little, the madness of Purity™ has unleashed an old terror. They are going to attempt to destroy all of our homes with these unholy things"
"What are they sending?" asked Kid Little.
"Dread machines that carry a terrible secret at their very heart. Each of these monstrosities carrys one of us imprisoned within them."
"One of the animal spirits?!?" cried Kid Little.
"Yes. Long ago, during the first crusades of Purity™ some of our kind were captured by the blasphemous archane sciences of the red priests. At first we throught our brothers and sisters were lost, destroyed by these apparatus, but later new horrible machines appeared that could lay waist to an entire nation. We all knew that our brethern was what drove them. Machine prisons that destroyed all they once loved. With them Purity™ took over the world and enslaved all to the fear that speaks."
"That's horrible! The poor spirits!"
"Indeed, it saddens my heart to this day. After the second crusade they didn't need these 'deathnaughts' to win their battles. No army remained that could muster much resistance to even their conventional forces. Periodic invasions controlled the provinces under their dominion. The deathnaughts were placed in vast crypts beneath the capital of Sinistra, bound with science magics we could not break. Their they have stayed all these years..."
"Until now. They have raised the most fearsome to destroy us all. They are headed this way."
Kid Little gasped! The King of Bears turned to Mother Possum.
"Can you show Kid Little, Mother Possum?" He asked
"Why, of course I can. Looking far is easy for Possum magic!" She smiled and waved her hand...
