Hollow Eve 2014

Hollow Eve 2014

High Priestess,

I’ve done as you asked and waited until I was certain. He had mutilated himself in such ways as I never wish to see again. I will relay everything in full when we meet, but most disturbing and most of note was his mouth; carved into a hideous facsimile of that of a shark, his teeth filed to points.

Enclosed is what I presume was the last letter he had written. It was amongst his things hidden within a nearby lean-to.

I am sorry.

 -S

 

Tallis,

 The watery creature came again last evening, and most of the others fled soon after. I do not blame them. There is no succor. He is everywhere. We were fools to think Him only interested in the oceans, fools to not spill blood and prostrate ourselves immediately.

 The current storm rages outside of my makeshift shelter as I write this to you. I have been following them as I promised you I would, led by the portents thrust upon us all. My remaining traveling companion assures me that his foresight shows this place to be safe for the coming anlaen, but my heart holds fear none the less. Powerful though the Mage may be, I cannot help but notice that he falters in his readings now, too, just a hint of hesitation where once there was naught but stolid certainty. I would not be surprised should I awaken in the morning to find him gone as well.

 There is a jar of holy water that I keep with me always. I added the fish eyes to it, the ones spewed from the gullets of the Drowned Ones, those first of His creatures to come upon our shores in warning. I originally thought of this as a talisman of sorts, some meager protection against the storms’ fury. I think now, though, that it was always something else. Something more. The waters are watching, ever watching. Maybe it is not the storms we should be worried about.

 I had the dream again — the ship upon the churning sea, faced by an enormous eel. I feel that I know now what it means.

 I understand that you grow tired of my tone in these missives. Do not think that the courier inadequately relayed your last response, for the woman made your intent very clear, but the signs are undeniable. Our refusal to bend will only prolong and intensify the suffering of all beings. The masses must know, Tallis, they must prepare. Sacrifices must be made!

 My soul screams for me to begin with the village below. A flood would be most fitting, but with the elementalists gone, I would have to make do with what I have on hand. These compulsions come ever more frequently now, and I am no longer sure that fighting them is the righteous path. Perhaps this is the truth. Perhaps this is my calling.

 Hail Lord Drogor!
