The Sixfold Sepulcher
The monument to all the lost victims of The War of Boiling Skies, mulched into sludge and denied a proper burial
The great can shout and give speeches, but there is no glory in war. Thirty Million dead can attest to that. What glory did they find, on those killing fields? Thirty million men and women went off to that awful war and never came home. And how many were never found? Mulched into sludge by the Ezdhûl cannons that boomed like thunderclaps? Trampled by the feet of the allied forces? "IN MEMORIA AETURNA" - 'In Memory Forever'. The only carving on the sepulcher. Built in memory of those who were never found. Who died nameless, in the gas-choked mud, their bones swallowed and lost. For millions, the only closure they'll ever have.
Purpose / Function
You can tell alot about the war from who went to the Sepulcher after it ended. The Ezdhûl , wild families, and all sorts go all the time, even now. But the Silver Haired Slaughterer and her forces? They only come to spit on their memory. To deny them even the basic fucking decency of being remembered. They were our dead too. Don't they realize we suffered too? Why is our grief lesser than theirs? Why?
