The Last Philosopher
Before there was everything, it's assumed there was nothing. However, what if the only difference between nothing and everything, was in the idea of how little one cared?
The planet Huom has been under observation by numerous forces for longer than should be possible. The primary watcher being a bitter black-hole, who is excited to see that there is finally a proverbial Darkness at the end of the tunnel.
On the continent of Sojurut. In the cold, mountainous sorcerers' nation of Empris. The oldest living sorcerer is having devastating nightmares. At the same time - in the sandstone desert of Zenon - a weird man is escaping a prison filled with weirder men.
What does all this have to do with, arsehole Gods, hairy Dwarfs, frustrated Afreets, curious Gnomes, lizard-women, and nude Áettar? Perhaps Nothing, perhaps Everything, but the real question is; 'why can't it be both?'
