When the emperor dies, the Empire dies. Where is the lost empire's blood, the Empire's sire? And from the womb of the void, who shall stem the blood tide? So long as the blood of the god prince runs strong in her rulers, the glory of the Empire shall extend in unbroken years. His heart's blood bleeds in darkness. For once the portals are opened, who shall shut them upon the rising tide? ... forever reborn in blood and fire from the waters of hell for Lord Svendall ...Find him ... andv close shut the marble jaws of hell."
