Belize is the site of operations for a new green geothermal project…
But it is also home to a newly awakened race of mermaids and mermen!
As agents of UNOPERA and undersea menaces clash, the Earth itself could be consumed in a geothermal hecatomb!
“I have known many gods. He who denies them is as blind as he who trusts them too deeply. I seek not beyond death. It may be the blackness averred by the Nemedian skeptics, or Crom’s realm of ice and cloud, or the snowy plains and vaulted halls of the Nordheimer’s Valhalla. I know not, nor do I care. Let me live deep while I live; let me know the rich juices of red meat and stinging wine on my palate, the hot embrace of white arms, the mad exultation of battle when the blue blades flame and crimson, and I am content. Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content.”
Robert E. Howard, Conan speaking, “Queen of the Black Coast”, Weird Tales 23 5, May 1934

Who sent them there?
And what does the mystery have to do with Toynbee Tiles?
