The Return of the Hand The Hand of Chaos has returned to the lands of Britannia, for those who do not know who they are here is a brief introduction. The Hand of Chaos is an elite organization dedicated to spreading the principle of Chaos throughout the lands of Sosaria. Since the first dissapearance of the founder of Chaos, Lord Blackthorn; his teachings fell silent upon the land, his followers slowly vanished and unbalance ensued. Order and the virtues no longer had any counter and were allowed to spread unchecked, enslaving people to their principles. Chaos became associated with evil and destruction in peoples eyes as they were blinded by the virtues being enforced by the Old Kingdom for control. It is the job of the Hand of Chaos to enlighten these people once more to the true meaning of chaos and restore balance to the lands!; for Chaos and Order must go hand in hand. Definition of Chaos - 'The defense of one's freedom of belief, individuality and difference.' The people must know that they have a choice! They do not have to follow the virtues, they do not have to be sheep, they do not have to be subjected to the tyranny and the virtues as a form of control. The Hand of Chaos must defend their freedom, their freedom of choice and their freedom to believe what they want; for our differences and individuality define us. Spoiler The Hand of Chaos formed a few years back and once Lord Blackthorn returned and was crowned King; the Hand departed Britannia to unknown lands on a Chaos Crusade to spread the principle of chaos to the land's inhabitants. Spoiler An army set sail and began the great crusade but only a handful of brothers and sisters returned to these lands. But that my readers is a story to be told in a later edition of the Word of Chaos. For now there is more pressing matters to report on. Escaflowne for Governer of Minoc!
