Blood, that’s all they want, nothing more, nothing less.
Who’s blood? It doesn’t matter who’s, they’re just looking for their fix, like some kind of cosmic junkie.
Yes, that’s what your gods are, junkies. Blood junkies.
You’ve emptied out regions, dragging people up your temple steps and slicing them open, trying to sate the blood gods.
It doesn’t happen that way, you’re just upping their dose and they want more.
Now all your surrounding lands are empty of people and the only ones that are left are those in your borders.
And the gods are getting antsy for a fix.
