“Thus Huma, Knight of Solamnia,

Lightbringer, First Lancer,

followed his light to the foot of the Khalkist Mountains,

to the stone feet of the gods,

to the crouched silence of their temple.

He called upon the lance makers, he took on

their unspeakable power to crush the unspeakable evil,

to thrust the coiling darkness

Back down the tunnel of the dragon’s throat.

Paladine, the Great God of Good,

shown at the side of Huma,

strengthening the lance of his strong right arm,

and Huma, ablaze in a thousand moons,

banished the Queen of Darkness,

banished the swarm of her shrieking hosts

back to the senseless kingdom of death, where their curses

swooped upon nothing and nothing

deep below the brightening land.” (5)
