Chapter 06

Post by Freakzilla »

You, the first person to encounter my chronicles for at least four thousand
years, beware. Do not feel honored by your primacy in reading the revelations of
my Ixian storehouse. You will find much pain in it. Other than the few glimpses
required to assure me that the Golden Path continued. I never wanted to peer
beyond those four millennia. Therefore, I am not sure what the events in my
journals may signify to your times. I only know that my journals have suffered
oblivion and that the events which I recount have undoubtedly been submitted to
historical distortion for eons. I assure you that the ability to view our
futures can become a bore. Even to be thought of as a god, as I certainly was,
can become ultimately boring. It has occurred to me more than once that holy
boredom is good and sufficient reason for the invention of free will.

-Inscription on the storehouse at bar-es-Balat

The new Duncan is brought to Arrakis. He remembers how they had awakened his memories, by forcing him to kill a man so much like Paul. He learns that its been more than thirty five hundred years since he died, and that Leto 2, the original Leto's son, is ruling, and a tyrant. Duncan meets some women of the Imperial Guard, which confuses him. Duncan is a little shocked by the fascination the women show when discussing Leto, and this scares him. Duncan also learns that he will be the commander of the Imperial Guard.
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.

~Leto II, God Emperor
