BARE BONES (SYNOPSIS) - written by Rey
A lone being named James Allison lies in bed, broken and forlorn with nothing but his distant memories to comfort him.
James Allison is no ordinary man, and as he edges towards what is seemingly his death, he recalls the countless lives he has led throughout the centuries - from barbaric adventures, to Gothic invasions and holy crusades.
Allison is haunted by a being with serpent eyes and it is this very being which seems to be Allison’s reaper in disguise.
The serpent being forces Allison to remember his sins and recall one of his past lives - a life as a man named Niord.
It was as Niord that Allison came face to face with a Serpent monster named Satha. After Niord discovers the beast has slaughtered half his tribe, Niord defeats the great snake, and it is this memory that is reminded to Allison from the voice in his head...the voice belonging to Set.
Allison reaches out and traverses the universe and links up with a man named Moon Knight...a servant of Khonshu and one susceptible to join Allison’s cause. Allison’s aim is to recruit a team to assist him in defeating the voice in his head...the voice that is compromising his immortal soul. So, with the help of Khonshu, Moon Knight is recruited. Others join shortly after, as Allison appears to be slowly assaulted by menacing tentacles - Soloman Kane is recruited from 16th century Northumberland; cut-throat fighter, Dark Agnes is lured into the quest after having been confronted with what appears to be black magic from a band of villagers in Poitu-Charentes; and finally from the Hyborian Age, Conan the Barbarian is afflicted with serpent visions after having battled an avatar of Set the great serpent. His hallucinations draw him towards the call of Allison from beyond.
As the four recruits become more entrenched in Allison’s other worldly influence through battles that each find themselves, in a flash of brilliance, they mysteriously discover themselves paired up - Moon Knight with Solomon Kane, and Dark Agner with Conan.
By Allsion’s design they have been brought closer together, to be used as pawns for Allison’s confrontation with the God of Chaos, Set.
