Premise

From the introduction:

You are led by the night marshal to a long path stretching far off into the east. In the distance you see a huge obelisk which the night marshal says is "the Pillar of Time".

"Many people," he says, "have come this route never to return. Good luck." And slowly he turns and leaves.

Turning toward the east, walking, you soon find yourself before a huge fifty-meter obelisk. As you draw close to it you see an inscription.

"Hail all those who come this way. Woe be to those who speak the ancient words and desecrate this most honored shrine. Lo the Prophet of Time: John Cooper has spoken!!!"

Casually you turn to leave even as you hear a voice say, "Cooper's revenge is upon you... foolish mortal!!!"

After you hear this you feel vertigo and a sudden blast of air which seems to grab hold of you and pull you towards the pillar, even as you resist. Then all at once you feel very strange and are immediately thrust forward into the pillar. For an instant you think all is lost, but as you open your eyes you find yourself falling through an endless void.
