Asherah ate the flesh of her sons and daughters and the flesh of their sons and daughters.

After a beautiful speech, you light the sacrifice and



Honestly, I'm actually a tiny bit worried about the anticipated size of this sacrifice. It's just a small concern, but ... doesn't it seem like the sort of thing people would notice? We're not supposed to sacrifice within the boundaries of giant-land, because it will increase the chance of detection, but wouldn't something this big right outside their borders do that anyway?

The Laurels don't seem concerned, so there's that. Maybe El will make sure that it can't be felt outside the bounds of this sactified area. Still, I'm reminded of how, during Ruth's trial sacrifice, we felt a massive force flying towards Kavodel. Seems like the sort of thing big powerful entities would pick up on.

I sure hope Demon-Amok doesn't fling itself down here in response.

You grab an arrow from your back and draw your bow swiftly, even before you put an arrow in it, your men have acted first upon what they sure seem to think is a very obvious sign of divine will. Nahari and Ithma stab their spears into Goliath's back, the giant roaring in pain, Uriah draws his sword and cuts Goliath's head off in a single blow! None of the farmers of Gebeb were near Goliath before but those which were closest are running and many yell in panic and confusion!

A vaporous yellow gas rises from Goliath's neck and begins to form into a cloud above of its body... and then begins to move towards the closest of the farmers! You swear you hear the faintest whimper and watch as the vapor is pulled away, towards the northeast, then flies in that direction with great speed, after only a few moments, it is gone.

The giant eagle looks over those assembled, its beak bloody, it spreads its wings wide and looks you straight in the eye.


CAAAAAAAW!


It flaps its wings and returns to the trees, the other predatory birds following it. You manage, eventually, to calm down the confused masses. A great and worthy sacrifice lay behind you and in a few moments, you will ignite it. But first... a few words to those who have so long been oppressed and for the first time, are free.





You have told the people of Gebeb a bit of El, but you are the only person who speaks their language and there has been a great deal to do. So now you tell them...


"In... in the beginning...."






"In the beginning there was naught but El who dwelt in void and sat in silence."

"On the First Day El crafted Paradise and filled Paradise with the Melachim. The Melachim sung the glories of El and, it was good."

Thub-dub. Some of the farmers have per-emptively placed their faces into the dirt, for you warned them that to look upon the altar during this sacrafice, they may perish. That El is not a great and giant thing of flesh and blood like their Gods, pretenders, but something else, something beyond comprehension and even a glimmer of him is more than a mind can bare.

"On the Second Day El crafted a new place. Over it was placed the sky and beneath, land and what lay between was filled with water and, it was good."




"On the Third day El waived His hand across the world and where it passed came plants of every sort and the creatures of the land and sea and sky and, it was good."

Thub-dub. The farmers listen with rapt attention. Your stomach rumbles.

"On the Fourth day the Melachim descended upon the world to slay Leviathan, Dragoom, Quetzatl, Ogar and Asharak to prepare the way for what was to come and, it was good."

"On the fifth day El reached into his flesh and placed a man and a woman upon the world and, it was good."

Thub-dub. You can hear their hearts beating. Well, you always can hear the hearts of those around you, you usually ignore such sounds, but the forest is quiet, the birds above do not sing but watch with rapt attention exactly like the hundreds now kneeling before you. You yearn to turn to the altar behind you and...

"On the sixth day, man covered the world and prayed to the sun and moon and stars and to the beasts of the field."

Thub-dub. Your stomach rumbles. You are... hungry.

"On the seventh day was born Labaras and, it was good."

Thub-dub. At this, Uriah shouts "Praise El!" and a number of the farmers shout out prayers but you motion for silence and you get it. You feel... strange.

"On the eighth day Labaras turned his back upon the sun, moon, stars and beasts of the field and left the tents of his fathers to search for El and, it was good."

Thub-dub. You... you have to eat...

"On the ninth day, Labaras spoke with El and raised up the House of El and, it was good."

Thub-dub. You have to. You have to, those orbs, you deserve them-!

"On the tenth day, El rested."

You take a deep breath and say "With El's aid, we have slain your false gods. Yet we have walked across the world and faced many perils and overcome many dangers to come here and the lands of Labaras and the House of El are distant. I do not know what the future holds. You are free today, but only El knows tomorrow. I do not know if we can take you with us to a safe place. Cry out, let El hear your pleads, let your voices soften his heart and move his hand."

The farmers begin to shout out El's name, some cry softly, others plead and pray.

Behind you is a large stone block from the house of Gebeb, carved into an altar for El and upon it are heaped many offerings, indeed, far more than can even fit upon the altar, they spill far and wide around it. You have used the last of your sacrificial oil and incense upon this sacrifice.

You have seized these things. They are yours. You deserve them. Your eyes linger upon the orbs of the giants in the middle of the offerings, upon the orbs of First and Second and your stomach gurgles, you feel weak in the knees and a bit dizzy... you reach a hand towards them... it takes it takes... It takes as much control as you can muster to not turn upon the altar and claim the delights upon it for yourself, somehow, you do not cram them into your maw.

A small fire burns nearby, waiting. You lift a flaming stick from the fire and move it towards the oil-soaked offerings...







But... but...


1. You...
A. Drop the stick. Eat the orbs!
B. THE ORBS! THE ORBS! THEY ARE YOURS!
C. You KILLED THEM! They are YOURS by RIGHT!
D. You FREED these people! You DESERVE THIS!

I don't believe in El. Still. But I believe that whatever El is is good. And that Melechim are good. And that demons deserve to die and mankind to be free.
