It's the lust for war and the pursuit of glory that sets man apart from the lesser species. For time immemorial the race of men has punctuated its history with tales of bravery, savagery and discord.
War is a brutal, often gruesome struggle from which only one champion will emerge; and yet this conqueror may never rest, lest he come to find himself the next victim. Thus is the nature of man's eternal conflict.
Good and evil? Tyrant or saviour? Victor or defeated? Abandon these narrow and transient concepts; focus on the skill and art with which you proceed, and the manner in which you comport yourself, for it is for these that you will be remembered.
Thus, the gift of the lord of War is the gift to decide your own destiny; to rise above the mediocrity, to forge your own legend in the land, and perhaps, for the greatest amongst you, to earn yourself a place in the halls of Olympus.
