"Quite. It was devastating at first, killing thousands of their people, as more and more turned. They saw little enough they could do to stop it. Eventually, in desperation, they turned to the artifact they found, and over a hundred years, as the ice flowed closer and closer to the ocean, kept trying to use it. Eventually, they did, and froze all the air and the water for hundreds of kilometres around."
"You're saying that the pole... no, the entire CONTINENT, is artificial?!"
"Indeed. You'll remember many years ago, when a science expedition had crippling device problems the moment they went too ar inland? They were no problems, they really had gone from hundred-year ice to ten-thousand-year ice in a matter of footsteps. Antarctica is nothing more than a defensive barrier against the most dangerous substance ever known to man or beast. There is no greater testament than the bodies in the cavern, for while there are tens of thousands of hostile ice bodies, there are ten times more who chose to die. Once they froze the continent, they had to fight back the ice casualties to stop them reaching the ocean. The war was a horror, for every infected body would infect anyone to move it, and yet the Llhuc had no choice. Every year more would go to move the bodies ,making it further and further until they died, and every year more would go, and push the bodies of the last year. Hundreds of thousands, it cost them, and all knew it would kill them in the most unpleasant way. Yet they did not stop, because they so feared that a future man would return and find these bodies, and just one would be all it took. They devastated their race to safeguard the world, and took on the name of that which had brought them ruin in shame. They were a race as powerful as our own, and yet they chose to live in utter uncivilised brutality out of shame and repentance for what they had unleashed and so barely contained."
