"Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved."-William Jennings Bryan
The silence of the barren universe was dismal, and haunting. The distant stars cast off into other galaxies dimmed while cold and sub zero temperature and conditions prevented any form of life from thriving within the vacuum of space. It was time for the fabrication of reality and existence to once again ripple with the waves of destiny and for the cosmos to claim their champion. To crown not the most adept in the arcane arts, but the one with the most capacity and potential for it’s control.
Matter not the alignment, army nor master that the magic serves, only its conjurer’s will and desires. The planets had perfectly rotated in straight coordination, their spheres casting before and after one another in impeccable harmony. Within the fiery core of the red hyper giant known to earth’s researchers as VY Canis Majoris, an item of unknown abilities and untold power was being forged by the hands of divine decree.
Mages, Sorcerers and those with the aptitude to wield its unimaginable endowment, and bare the weight of the title “Sorcerer Supreme”, would fade into nothingness, and reappear amongst each other not as peers or fellow scholars in the arts, but as foes and enemies. The strings of fate intertwine once more with only one left standing.
