Everything you need to know
about the Apolcalypse.
The first thing you need to know about 2012 is that it's just like any other year.
And the second thing you need to know…
is that it really isn't.
The maya didn't make it their 'end date' for nothing…
The date is set.
Time is running out.
The ancient Mayans predicted the End of Days with uncanny precision: 21December 2012.
But they also provided the key to staving off spocalysp: a flawless sapphire of incomparable beauty carved into the perfect likeness of a human skull.
For more than four centuries, the skull and its legacy of dark intrigue and murder have been hidden, protected by a code few can break.
Now it's about to be found.
