All too often the desires of man have fallen off the path of the righteous. We seek selfish means to greedy ends, forget our common man, concern ourselves with power, lust, wealth, at the expense of others. Misery takes root in our obsession. The world has become a very dead, cold, and gray place.

And yet, there is still a goodness in man. Sometimes hidden, buried. A mere spark can ignite it, remind us of what we can stand for instead. And some of us choose to kindle this fire, taking heart in the warmth it brings forth.

How much of a burden does it weigh to be a force of good?

Despite the odds and the struggle, many push forward, amidst this sea of gray despair, carrying with them the torches of tomorrow. The weight is dense, but more soon join, and the burden becomes lighter. The warmth we feel is that of a bond we share with all life. We find that we can take heart in one another's fellowship. We bear witness that love can overpower hate.

And what's more, we become inspired.

When we stand shoulder to shoulder, we see that the world does not need to stay gray. There is a call, almost deafening, that tells us to create.

We design art to inspire, amuse, that we can laugh with or feel for. We can write works—poetry, fiction, narratives, that drive the mind to think. We can compose, singing the universal language of music, to be carried to the ears of people of every race.

We can craft worlds, beautiful and rich in majesty, stories that drive them, tales of conflicts overcome that touch the most primal part of our being. Worlds of narrative, of escape, of parody. Nay, we can create not just worlds, but galaxies, universes, realms, all in the glorious name of inspiration and creation!

And for what?

Our designs are a testament to more than just our ability to kindle a spark in a world of gray.

We've been crafting worlds for centuries now.

Let us now create the one we choose to live in.

very deep man, sounds like something someone from the Ecclesiarchy would say just needs a lot of mentions of the Emperor and you'd be there
