Recovered Material 1 Month ago Karma: 13  
I have been browsing through the scrolls and notes recovered on recent missions and came across these written on black paper in a yellow ink. I hope I have transcribed them correctly as some of them look like they were used as pillows or beer mats.

Re:Recovered Material 1 Month ago Karma: 28  
Thank you for sharing these Quatrains, Count. I gather from those who have visited the Circle Aflame that members of that Nation seek to try to change the prophecies. Perhaps one of those who spoke with Basil Valentine could confirm the exact details, but I believe they document number of attempts to change and actual successful attempts. I seem to recall that the second number in the Quatrain may reflect how many times it has successfully been changed.

This particular Quatrain caught my eye:

He will be wrapped in fabrics red as sunset flame,
Born of obscure and dark family.
He who the revered power of the great Sorcerer,
He blew Maeglor’s dust away.

Quatrain 83.1


as it reminded me of this poem, recovered from - I believe - Otion Wraithchild well over a decade ago:

And at the last from inner lands came
The strange dark One to whom the peasants bowed;
Silent and lean and cryptically proud,
And wrapped in fabrics red as sunset flame.
Throngs pressed around, frantic for his commands,
But leaving, could not tell what they had heard;
While through the nations spread the awestruck word
That wild beasts followed him and licked his hands.

Soon from the sea a noxious birth began;
Forgotten lands with weedy spires of gold;
The ground was cleft, and mad auroras rolled
Down on the quaking citadels of man.
Then, crushing what he chanced to mould in play,
The idiot Chaos blew Maeglor’s dust away.


I believe Maeglor suffered its own form of Cataclysm aeons ago. Should this Quatrain prove relevant to current affairs then I am always happy to be contacted about what I have previously learned of Maeglor.

It may be that some of these 'prophecies' refer to events that have already taken place.

Re:Recovered Material 1 Month ago Karma: 28  
Perhaps it may be worth people speculating on what that fragments of the Quatrains refer to. There are a couple that strike me as being open to interpretation:

The changing Wind splits the four asunder
As new lands cherish the icons of old
Old enemies offer aid and succour
Waiting for the rebalancing of the scales of Time.

Quatrain 20.21


To me this sounds like:
  • The changing Wind splits the four asunder - the Oracles of the Mystics have moved out of all being in the Valley
  • As new lands cherish the icons of old - the post-Cataclysm world coming to respect the power of the Mystics
  • Old enemies offer aid and succour - more speculative, but this could be a faction of the Shadowsfall (the Shadowsrise)

I note a high number of attempts/changes to that particular prophecy, and a number of references in the Quatrains to Chaos and Law. With the appearance of the Weapons of Law, this may be a point of further interest.

Re:Recovered Material 3 Weeks ago Karma: 7  
I myself have a number of these quatrains in my office in Darkholme.
Due to my being very busy of late, I haven't gotten around to making copies to add to the archives but I shall do as soon as I can, anyone is free however, to come and read them if they wish.
