“Life” was once understood. We warred, we died, and we were reborn.
New life was a gift from the Goddess. This was the way since the beginning.
Then without cause, without warning, there were no more gifts.
The only way to have a child was to steal one, and eventually, there were none left to steal.
In each tribe, there were many who accepted, some who questioned, and a few who acted.
I am one of the few—I lead the Horde. The Horde has not borne a child in nineteen years, and so, searching for answers, we have travelled far out of our domains. Further even than Dorn’s memory can trace.
Every colony, every tribe we come to is childless.
The cycle for them, as for us has stopped.
But, I am Laywren, Queen of the Horde, and I do not accept extinction as my destiny.
