Monolith: Your world is one of many worlds, not planets, not stars, not galaxies, but one of many universes... This one's time is coming to an end... your people call it Armageddon. the end times, Ragnablok... The Monolith must... relocate.. but needed .. contact with a Psionic mind... so many refused the call. So the Monolith became... desperate. But that is in the past.. You have linked this realm's energy to the Monolith... and it can now be free. as can you... The Monolith will leave this world, but in order to do so, everything you know will be undone... you will all be saved.. but you may not understand the circumstance. You will come to learn.. soon enough. Now, Mortal Shulga... prepare for the Monolith's embrace!Thunder cracks, and the ground violentley rumbles, the Monolith speaks one last time

20181115_004050 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrShulga freezes, his life flashes before his eyes, and then all of a sudden there is a very loud bang and for him, everything goes red.. and then black.
Shulga is suddenley obliterated in some kind of unknown energy outburst, he, the Crystal, and everything around him... dissapears...
News Reporter: The AN bureaucrats have called an emergency session.. reports are flooding in from all across the Western Arms that the Gold Sector has... dissapeared... hundreds of stars and planets have completely vanished from the galaxy in some kind of titanic energy pulse... a few thousand citizens of the region who have been living abroad have flocked to holy sites to pray and repent.. but for now.. there appears to be no explanation.
Somewhere else, An undetermined period later

Suddenley, an unknown minifig lets out a wrenching gasp and sits up in shock...Completely clueless as to what has happened, where he is... or even who he is.
The Monolith's realm has been born.
