History: While on a case, 1930s private investigator Rick Fortune discovered the Dice of Destiny, two stone dice that were created by the Master Masons of Atlantis to store astral power and thus control the forces of the cosmos. They became his treasure and his burden, his power and his curse - risky to use, but too dangerous to discard and risk having them fall into anyone else's hands. And with them came their guardian, the demon Astragal, forced to obey Fortune, but hating him for it. A being of primeval malevolence, he would only come at the time of greatest danger, and would not leave again until his gruesome appetites were glutted.
