The Glory Race is the island’s single biggest event. So much goes into it, with the celebrations, the parades, the parties. Besides the betting and the killing, of course. Ten Landers risk their lives charioteering with ruthless maristags that hold their lives between their jaws. And one of those Landers becomes a Champion with more gold than they’d ever need in one lifetime.
Having the Hunter name has always meant being alone in this world.
Like gods of the Empyrean Elders’ world, the only source of entertainment for the puppeteers behind the Glory Race is visiting tragedies on human beings.
“This old world will come to an end, the seeds of a new world will shoot out of this monument’s broken ground; those they call monsters will be born and made.”
