The word of the chronicler. The second chapter of the Chronicles of Chill.
In third year of the first reign of King Gejoshaphat, ruler of the 36 kingdoms, it came to pass that the people of Ekitilopia were required to choose a new paramount chief.
Chief Jefka had ruled Ekitilopia for four years and was known by Social Medianites and Digital Perusites as a good and just chief. And yea, did Chief Jekfa present himself to the Ekitilopians for their consideration to be appointed for a second and final reign.
But lo, there was contention against Jekfa by another who would be paramount chief. And his name was Yode, son of Falasham, who had once ruled the Ekitilopians but was removed. Yode had suffered persecution and prosecution since he was removed from the throne, in a heltering and skeltering joust with the Pharisees. And he was said by the Digital Perusites and Social Medianites not to be a just chief, and one given to violence.
But Yode and Gejoshaphat belonged to the same PaDiPadia House and the PaDiPadics had decided that Yode son of Fasham was to be their champion in the contest for the throne of Ekitilopia. This was significant because Jekfa was from the House of APiCuram, who were the sworn enemies of the Padipadics. And there was no chill because many had fled the House of Padipadia for the House of Apicuram, greatly heating the internal polity of the padipadics.
On the last day but two before the Ekitilopians would choose their next chief, other chiefs from the house of Apicuram, from the kingdoms of Edom and Riveria, embarked upon journeys to Ekitilopia to support Jekfa. But the armies of Gejoshaphat came against them and laid siege to them and obstructed their way.
And they could neither move by their carriages nor their magical metal birds.
And there was no chill in the land. For Amachinus and Shimolek, Apicuram chiefs of Riveria and Edom, had only a few sentinels with them and could not prevail against the armies of Gejoshaphat. Neither was a Leonidas. And Ekitilopia was not Sparta.
And lo there was fury in the land of the Social Medianites and the Digital Perusites, and they rained condemnation on Gejoshaphat and his armies. But it was not a real rain, as it neither fell on the heads of Gejoshaphat nor his generals.
And the spirit of the tword came upon the prophets of the Social Medianites. And they dreamt dreams and saw visions. And they prophesied violence in the contest for the throne of Ekitilopia. And they foresaw and foretold unspeakables about the contest for the throne of the 36 kingdoms, to take places in 10 moons’ time.
And there was no chill in the land.
