HISTORY, MYTHS & TALES: NIGHT HAS BECOME RESTLESS
Ages have risen into glory and ages have fallen into despair. Ages have yet to be drawn into the Currents of Time then swallowed by its forgotten depths. Just as the ages before our own have gone, so too shall this age pass into Nothingness. None know as to when its end will come. And even though True Night stalks ever closer, none know as to what will bring about this current age’s demise. Rather than wait for the encroaching darkness, let us establish the coming age now. Let’s begin shaping the distant ages that are to follow before it is too late.
We can only accomplish this by remembering from where it is whence we came. By acknowledging where it is that we are. To do this we must start from the Beginning, where Nothingness reigned and the Currents of Time had yet to stir. Let us walk these legendary eras of written and unwritten history. Some claim these times to be glorified myths. Others have declared it definitive truth. Have faith that what I tell you be true. Yet, also know this, truth from the lips of mortals is never absolute.
HISTORY, MYTHS & TALES: ONCE A GREY WOLF, ALWAYS A GREY WOLF
So you’ve heard tale of the Mad King, who turned the jewel of the plains into a twisted labyrinth; all charred stone and misbegotten creatures who live on in eternal flame. It’s a good tale, full of horror and suspense. And while such tales are the easiest to tell, they are the least true in the telling. But if you ask the right questions, there’s truth to be found in even the most outlandish of stories. Know this: Greveinja did burn and it’s the iron truth that her true king still mourns. Even after all these centuries, he still mourns for her.
We’ll have to start at the beginning if you want the tale to make sense. Before the Ravens claimed the towers and the wolves began their keening vigil over the land. Before the brambles and thorns pushed their way free of the dying earth to encircle the old kingdom.
