From the introduction:
Millenia ago, cruel, capricious, foul and evil gods ruled supreme. Legions upon legions of demons and evil spirits served their every whim, oppressing, abusing, and feeding on the crawling, wretched masses of humanity. But great heroes resisted! Coming together, priests, sorcerer-princes, enlightened warriors, great songengineers and poet-smiths, they made from nothing the Great Celestial Instrument Equal To Heaven! As big as the moon, thousand-armed and fearsome, the heroes used this incredible moving armor to cast down the cruel gods. It was powered by spirit, will, and the human soul, and filled with grand temples, occult mechanisms, sacred engineering and wonders of magic and art unheard of, all working together to create the perfect weapon against the gods.
And now it is rusting.
