    SPEAK IN ME ORACLES, I command. I am a means, a vessel for the words of Darkness and Justice, a great redeeming tide to cleanse the land of injustice through lyric, song, and story. Nay, I am not a mere bard, I am a prophet, so hear my words and become just. This is a tale about the Emperor Cruz and his army of evil. This story begins as the Emperor takes power. He is young, younger than all the previous emperors, and the first in years to not be of the Hutt clan, so he is apprehensive, paranoid. He fears for his throne as well as for his life. The Bronx Empire is vast, with may connections to the Council of TOC and the Monastery of NFL, but the young Emperor does not fear. He decides to rule with an iron fist and a great battlehorn of red, which he uses to subdue his foes and gain complete control over the land. Many learn to fear his battlecry: “RUDE”. He quickly forms an alliance with Vaughan, the Thane of Scarsdale, and together they rule heavy-handedly over the Northeastern dominion. But such a peace could not last. The great emperor would have to defend himself against challengers to his position, and the overwhelming population of the Bronx Empire was becoming too much of a burden for the Emperor to bear. There could be only one solution. He would raise an army of devoted followers, devoted cronies who would hang on to his every word and execute his every command, his arm, his blade, his shadow. The Emperor turned to his loyal subjects to create his perfect servants: there would be no outsiders in the Bronx Empire leadership. First, he brought the stealthy Du’Nay, the great but forgotten Abhi the Conqueror, and some guy named Reilly from the darkest depths of the Hack Swamps. They were instructed explicitly to never make the right decision in a debate round, no matter what the costs. They obeyed: no one would dare challenge the word of the great Cruz. They swore their utter fealty to him and were unleashed upon the world. However, the lack of talent in the Bronx Empire was not without its consequences. With only the Great Cronies at the helm, the Empire began to collapse. No great warriors were seen out of the Bronx Empire for years. Until one.

    Our story continues with a young citizen of the Bronx Empire, Zeke of Pink Hair. Young Zeke was a talented, but cautious warrior, afraid of his own limitations. He had been trained, like all warriors of the Bronx Empire, under the strict tutelage of Du’Nay, where they learned how to creep people out just by looking at them. Young Zeke did not do well in this field, but his compatriot, Shai of the No Emotions, excelled. Young Zeke followed the tutelage of the scholars of the Bronx Empire, but had little success in battle. Eventually, he realized that the Emperor was only selecting scholars who were from the Bronx Empire and who were loyal to him, not those who knew the most about fair combat. So the Young Zeke became self-taught: he trained in the arcane arts independently of his fellows, and developed skills beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. He was sent to the barren wastelands of Nevada, where he engaged in battle and was quick to be victorious. Young Zeke was overjoyed. Then, as was customary, the Emperor Cruz took all the credit for Young Zeke’s success and listed himself as a coach, even though he hath not coached for many years. Emperor Cruz also did comment on the status as he always did, claiming that he was responsible. None of the Great Cronies had the wherewithal to stand up to the great Emperor, however, and so he lives on, feeding on the success of others. There is hope, however, for the great Bronx Empire. When the blinding light of Justice washes over the land, the great Emperor Cruz will see his folly and restore the Empire to its former glory.
