Mammon slept. And the <em>beast reborn</em> spread over the earth and its numbers

grew legion. And they proclaimed the times and <em>sacrificed</em> crops unto the

The <em>twins</em> of Mammon quarrelled. Their warring plunged the world into a

The Beast adopted <em>new raiment</em> and studied the ways of <em>Time</em> and

From its studies, the Beast fashioned new structures from <em>oxidised metal</em> and proclaimed
