Within the limits of Metal City, there are few who can rise to challenge the power wielded by the Sect of Metal. They, and they alone, bear the messages of the Metal God to the rabble that scrounge for survival in its streets. Even the Patrons move carefully around the Sect and its frontman, the Metal Herald. Among those unfortunate souls brought to kneel before the Herald in judgement, none leave without admitting their sins and evils before the eyes of the God chosen. Those who find themselves face-to-face with the skull-faced Ayatollah of Rock n’ Roll would sooner risk death than endure his wrath a second time.
