ANGELS ABOVE, DEVILS BELOW...
Since the first human stood upright the stars have been a source of wonderment and inspiration. All our heavens have been placed in... the heavens, our hells in the depths of earth. Angels above, devils below. Mankind between.
But perhaps heaven isn't so heavenly. Perhaps those who live there are as self-interested and violence-prone as any earthbound mortal. And even if they're not, we will be there soon.
Cause enough for CONFLICT.
