I never really knew my uncle growing up. He seemed nice enough, but I got the sense from the distant, troubled look in his eyes that there was at least some truth to the rumours...
Years before I was ...
You've trekked through jungle and tundra, across mountaintops and deserts, into giant caverns and beneath the ocean to find the person known as The Oracle. Finally, after all your hard work, you find ...

Pale at first, weak, and infirm,
Oh how I'll change in my ultimate form.
Billions of creatures will toil away
