Stay within the city walls. Beyond them is only suffering.
Welcome to the world of ABCD | A place where music alters reality.
In the aftermath of the hallucinogenic transformation, many citizens began to push back against the increasing control that had begun to take over.
These were mainly artists, poets, and musicians. They all had something to say, some of which were uncomfortable truths. But the world was different now; even a slight change in surrounding consciousness and space could spell disaster. At first, they were marginalized and citizens everywhere were told they would cause nothing but death and despair if they were allowed to engage in their self-indulgent expression.
Soon, these dangerous heretics were all rounded up and brought in large caravans outside of the watchful eyes of the cities. They were driven to large pits that had been excavated, and buried alive.
They could have used alternate means to marginalize them: Ostracizing them for their dangerous thoughts could work, but using democide was seen as an effective way to assert that no longer would free expression be tolerated. It was a warning to others that might wish to stand up in the future.
Soon, the surrounding forest; untethered to the harsh definition of reality that had engulfed the cities, began to exhume their remains. The roots slowly pushed the corpses up through the mud until they emerged at the surface.
Those who encountered them called these creatures Transients: A short high amplitude change of state at the beginning of an unintended energy burst. They were the first signs that violence was on the horizon.
