You were born into a small village in the middle of the forest. Everyone is tight-knit because they had to be. The nearest town is three days walk, and it was too early in time for cars. No one was well off enough to have a horse, either.
And because any who aren't close to the others in the village get offered to the god who owned the land the humans had so foolishly settled on. A soul for protection, and being allowed to work the land for a living. Was that such a bad deal?
Most years, at least one traveler passes through. The god isn't picky when his offering comes, after all, as long as they came before the end of the year.
This time was different, though. The deadline was drawing near, and no one had come. The one with the least amount of ties to the rest of the people living there… was you.
So, there you were, your mother being consoled as you were chosen by the elders, bound and led into the forest to be left for the god. You were afraid to even pray as you were left there, because this god was not one known for his… mercy.
Little did you know the god is actually a chaotic bastard piece of shit who'd much rather spend his days making sex jokes and smoking weed. Will you end up just one of his pretty souls to display in his doll room, or perhaps something more? Family, lover- it could be anything.
So, shall we begin?
