The Great Beast floats eternally through space, content to watch the universe grow and evolve before his vast golden eyes. Only the most learned of sages has any knowledge of its existence, and none can agree on its origin or purpose. But now invaders have taken over the Great Beast and forced it to the service of chaos! They have actually constructed a compound within the living flesh of the immortal creature, allowing them to safely travel through space in an invulnerable craft. They are stealing the collective knowledge of any civilization they encounter. Our world is next - unless the heroes can stop them!
