"In the wilderness of Britain little of civilization remains. Decadence and division have overtaken the huddled people of festival. And faith in the texts of the old gods - Dhillon, Djeggar and Morrizen - is fading fast.
Beyond the city walls the tribes are massing, united in evil intent. Hill savages fired by ritual superstition to pillage and slaughter. Satanic horseriders inspired by drugs to rape and defile. And crystal-crazed iggy at the head of them all - a despot in search of a territory. A territory like festival."
