A N U B I A N S: TRUE TO THE PROPHECY
Th e history of the universe is a never-ending cycle of life and death. Th is cycle is like a series of ripples; only through death can one travel across them and change the course of history. The Anubians believe this and see themselves as the custodians of humanity. Th ey have warned of the encroaching Primer since the beginning of time. Centuries after the Eschaton, the Anubians returned from exile to their homes: the temples of the ancient Egyptians. For the people of Africa, they are the spirit of the continent, shamans who can see the past and weave it into a new future. They are ambassadors between the world of the living and the world of the dead. Th ey embrace death as a companion and live with it in the boneyards of the African villages. Like jackals, they roam the graveyards. Their oral traditions preach of the weaknesses of Homo dege-nesis; they know how to bring the psychonauts to their knees. They must vanquish these monstrosities before the evil of the Primer destroys the world. A great fate lies in their hands; as a consequence, they must pay a heavy price. To defeat the devil, one must play by his rules.
