Dear readers, it is with a heavy yet hopeful heart that I
relate to you the details of Lucius' death as they have become known to me. As
many of you know, Lucius recently traveled to Egypt for a purpose
known only to himself. Upon his return home he immediately began meditating
while listening to chants from the Bardo Thodol, more commonly known as the
Tibetan Book of the Dead. We had never seen Lucius act with such urgency and,
frankly, we were quite worried for him and about what his actions might portend.
Lucius' meditative trance continued for several months while our anxiety mounted
since we were unable to communicate our concern to Lucius nor was he able to
communicate his purpose to us.
Finally, two weeks ago, Lucius' plan was revealed to us.
The first significant event was his death, occurring on February 10, 2008 at
approximately 4:30 p.m. As fate would have it, Iggy was able to capture Luciusí
last moment and his ascension on film. I now share this evidence with you:
The next event
was our discovery of a letter which Lucius had left for
us, in obvious preparation for his demise. Again, I know that Lucius would want
us to share the content of his letter with you:
as you are reading this missive, you are no doubt
aware that I have been successful in the first part of my mission, which is to
say coarsely, I am dead.
I beg you to forgive my silence and lack of
attention in the last few month and for my abrupt ultimate departure. I
have been a neglectful comrade, but only because of the importance of, and focus
required for, the preparations for my current journey through the spirit world.
I alluded to fragments of my tale when I returned
from Egypt and began my meditations, but now, to the best of my abilities, I
shall explain the full import of my actions.
I traveled to Egypt because I could sense there
the awakening of a powerful malign force, the likes of which this globe has not
seen for many millennia. Itís emerging presence haunted my inner eye,
threatening to tear my soul apart. I had no choice but to track its source
for my own well-being and for the well-being of all sock-kind. Once in
Egypt, I was unable to pinpoint the source of this evil manifestation until near
the culmination of my excursion. Finally while diving near the original
site of the Temple of Hathor and utilizing the Eye of Azathoth to peer into the
spirit realm there, I saw the sought after entity, attempting to break free of
its bonds like a hellish embryo ripping free from its fetid amniotic
sack. I will not name the entity, for that would increase its power.
Instead, I shall refer to it as the Evil, for that is an apt description.
Once free of its prison, the Evil would spread throughout the dimensions, and
our universe would be destroyed in a maelstrom of darkness and chaos. Now
that I had discovered the source of my disturbance, I raced home in order to
prepare for my crossing over into the spirit realm and my ultimate confrontation
with the Evil before it could fully escape its bonds.
I knew that my meditative preparations would be
long and arduous, and this is why, dear friends, I was not able to give you a
full report upon my homeward return. Once home, I immediately began the
meditation process, relaxing my mind, body, and spirit and allowing the Tibetan
chants from the Bardo Thodol enter into my psyche and guide me into the spirit
realm. Apparently I was successful.
I will not be able to communicate with you again
until and unless I am ultimately successful in re-binding the Evil. The
next step of the journey will entail my traveling through the spirit realm back
to the location where I discovered the Evil. Once there, I will confront
and hopefully defeat this entity. If I am able to accomplish this task, I
will then attempt to re-cross into our own dimension. Only then will I be
in contact with you all again.
Wish me luck and have faith that we will greet
one another again.
The facts are now laid out before you. I am sure you
will join us as we hope and wait for Lucius' triumphant return.
