The horrific vision appeared in a cloud of smoke, standing on a square of sod. In one hoof, it clutched the Hoop of Lust. In the other, the Hoop of Shame. In a third, the Hoop of Need. The rotting intestines of nonbelievers draped over its arms. According to prophecy, one chose from the three hoops in order to find their destiny...be they in the circus maximus of heaven, or on the precipice of the ultimate hellmouth.
