"Upon departing from his natal Africa, the Knight travels from Judea and Palestine all the way to the ruins of an ancient nation. Once known as "India," this land is now chiefly called "Bharat Sindhu," among other names. Using what he knows of the languages spoken at Bharat Sindhu, the Knight learns of the contempt many of its people still harbor towards a breed of men named "Europeans." The Knight reviews what his mentor told him about the Great Stealing and the Ages of Tyranny and concludes that these hated peoples are ancestors of the men of the West reviled by many among his nation. As he ponders thus, the Knight comes across an abandoned citadel about which he has heard much in legend: once called "The Crown of Palaces," this place has all but fallen into oblivion in the centuries following the Great Destruction, yet something in the Knight's heart tells him that these ruins hold responses to many questions he must not leave unanswered..."

I love this sunset; unlike the gloom of previous pics, it could signal the end of a previous era and mark the dawn of a new age, for better or worse. I like to think the Knight is just getting started in his adventure and has yet to learn the complete story behind the destruction of the old world, the precarious fate of the new one, and the mere existence of the Enemy he will eventually oppose. Kudos on an amazing job.
