The Prophecy

Prophecy Fragments

The first fragment we found in Blacktree’s town home in Session 2. It was written in an old form Riedran:

And the five shall be The Student of Two Schools, the Open Hand, The Huntress, Lighting’s Orphan and the Sacrifice.

The Student of Two Schools, The Open Hand, The Huntress, The Lightning’s Orphan and The Sacrifice shall meet the Abomination in his final days. Should they prevail all his efforts shall be for naught.

The five shall be known to you by this, firstly they shall take the head of the goblin prince Hrashara.

We got this fragment when the ghost of a paladin gave us some dragon shards after we killed a vampire in Session 7

The second sign shall be known to you, that they shall rescue the Heir of the Dragonslayer.

This fragment was also acquired in Session 7

The ninth sign shall be known to you, they shall stand in The Sepulcher on the Talenta Plains on the 14th day of Nimm.


History

The party has been pursuing information on fragments of a prophecy which seems to refer to them. At least Blacktree seems to believe it refers to them and was keen on killing them because of it.

We initially went to Morgrave University for a translation of the first fragment, and we were directed to Jaquier in Korranberg for more information. Jaquier was unable to help us, so he has directed us to Darcaryn who we should be able to find at The Boneyard in the Talenta Plains.

Before we got a good translation at Morgrave, a Comprehend Languages ritual gave us the following less than perfect translation:

And the five shall be The Student of Two Schools, the Open Hand, The Huntress, Lighting’s Orphan and the Sacrifice.

If The Student of Two Schools, the Open Hand, The Huntress, Lighting’s Orphan and the Sacrifice shall stand before the Abomination, all its/his/her plans shall be sundered.

The five shall be known to you by this, firstly they shall take the head of the goblin prince Hrashara


Speculation


It seems that “the Abomination” refers to Blacktree, and that he knew this referred to him. That is why he was so keen on finding and killing the “the five” (the party) — if he did not, they were prophesied to ruin his plans.

This would also indicate that Blacktree is over as a major threat, or is on the way out. However, that still leaves the mystery of what his plans were all about.


It seems that the first sign and the second sign have already come to pass in Session 1 and Session 7, respectively. I don’t remember the details or seem to have them written down, but the evidence at the time indicated that Chalen was the “Heir of the Dragonslayer”.

As for the ninth sign, we are planning to go to the Talentia Plains at some point to find Darcaryn. So it seems likely that we will fulfill that one too.
