What is Blood?
Oh where to start!? Blood is a PC game created by Monolith that was

gun-slinger from western Texas in the year 1847. You are betrayed and sacrificed
by your Dark God Tchernobog. You and the other chosen are burned as
your souls fall through the abyss. He leaves you in a hollow grave

from the putrefaction by some unearthly link to its master. The pain
of the protesting muscle and flesh invigorates and awakens him. He
welcomes it. It distills his hate into the maelstrom raging in the
center of his mind. An agonizing cry breaks out of him, shattering
