A fleet of human space explorers discover a lost ancient alien temple, in the deeper reaches of space.
Though they are alone there, they are watched...
Amidst the silent surveillance of guardian statues and glowing inscriptions of language long lost, lies a sleeping secret:
Two ancient treasure swords lie in wait, to test those who may find the temple.
Even a mere grasp of one hilt spells the future for the hand that touches.
If the Sword of Destiny is chosen, the gods of destiny will manifest their power of insight and prosperity to whomever chooses it.
But if the Sword of Doom is chosen, the hands of haste will have awoken terrors of forgotten ages, sealed away by the ancients.
The gods hint at which fate is ascribed to which sword. Their light tells all.
...Will hastiness of humanity miss the vital indicant of the gods?
...Or will humanity become enlightened?
