Taunting the Devil

True power is never granted; it is always taken.

The Chosen wear their God’s hearts and rule Newterra as their avatars. Those who aspire to become Chosen must seize power violently to gain their God’s confidence, to do anything less risks rejection and damnation. 

Aspirants are gathering in Damar, each preparing to claim Maiten’s heart when the God’s current chosen, Lord Rarick, falls, but who will succeed? The lone assassin who has already failed once? The infiltrator who has worked his way into Lord Rarick’s confidence and is playing all sides of the conflict? Or a member of a covert team with careful plans and the backing of a rival Chosen?
