devastating nuclear strikes had destroyed most major cities and
killed off most of the population, Africas countries crumbled
and its remaining inhabitants chose to live the life of their
ancestors gathering in small villages far away from the
old cities, tilling the soil, hunting in the forests.
But radiation had contaminated Africas once fertile soils,
and Death continued to walk among them.
When a stranger came from the North, the situation changed. He
gave them hope and showed them how to grow plants in the barren
He also told them of a saviour who would come one day, and of
the angry gods who punished humankind with fire.
His name was DevDey, and he led the settlements through hard times
and helped them flourish again. Today, his name is a part of many
songs and legends.
the Gods turned away from us, they punished our arrogance with
the white light THEY poured from the sky.
THEY burned our skin and made our eyes turn blind.
THEY built a monument from formless darkness. This reminder of
our unworthiness stands tall in the lands of eternal purity.
So clean yourselves daily to become pure again, and bow your heads
The world was dying. Yet while it withered away, it gave birth
to new life. And we are the keepers of this new life. Be aware
of your responsibilities.
DevDeys last speech to his people
way of the Settlers is one of contemplation, of arts and craftsmanship
rather than one of brute force yet when forced to fight,
they are well able to defend themselves.
