The Guf - A Cathedral of Unborn Souls

A Man comes into this world. He searches for something, runs across a Power, and gets shocked of it. He becomes convinced by the rightness of the Power. He is not able to separate right or wrong anymore. He makes mistake and dies, but the Goodness will give him a new trial - a new possibility to make mistake.
