|The Proving Grounds of Armageddon by Mark Childs
On a hot, humid day in early July, he appeared out of thin air, less than a mile from
Central Park. Eyewitness testimony varied considerably, but everyone agreed on two
things. His snow-white beard flowed beyond his navel, and the staff he wielded in his
right hand was as black as night. His robes billowed behind him as he marched
toward the United Nations building. Anyone in proximity to this stranger stopped what
they were doing and began to follow, consciously unaware of their action. His name
was Zemith. He was a collector.
The Jarn, a race of god-like creatures from the outer reaches of the universe, have
been monitoring Earth for centuries. Earth no longer emits a positive, harmonious
energy, making it a threat to the sensitive balance needed to maintain universal order.
Zemith, an ambassador representing the Jarn, travelled to Earth to collect two
hundred participants, utterly at random; male, female, young and old. Those selected,
will represent Earth at the Proving Grounds of Armageddon, pitting humankind against
thousands of other creatures from distant galaxies.
The entire population of Earth will bear witness as the bizarre events unfold, in a
series of ten trials, testing humankind in every possible way. Wishes are granted to
the victors, offering Earth a chance at salvation. Failure will result in Armageddon. Hell
will rain down on Earth.
