BOTH FISTS ERUPT — SISTER TASRHHSU SAYS PERI’EL NOT DEAD
BOTH FISTS ERUPT, MOON MAGE GUILDHALL DESTROYED.
The Lesser Fist volcano, northwest of Dirge, has erupted, causing catastrophic damage and destroying the Fortress of the Crystal Hand. The Fortress was built into the very basin of the Volcano, a great translucent dome capping it — but now all that remains is shattered Debris. A number of Monks of the Crystal Hand were killed in this tragedy. The Greater Fist, to the east of the Lesser Fist, also erupted.
Moon Mage Miskton reported that Guildleader Tiv escaped alive, first speaking cryptic words and then entering a moongate. The guildleader reportedly collapsed, then stood and spoke in a different voice, his eyes white: “Today is a day of Gods and men, not of us. He overreaches himself. He cannot change those who came before you made that truth manifest. I will not undo what has been done. I will not ape his crimes. I give this vessel what is sought. I will not be thanked for it. The future is of your own making, for he sees only one. I will intervene no more.”
One Toldorf claimed to see the smoke from Ratha. Burning cinders rained from the Sky, harming many, even as far south as Acenamacra. Cinders and wind gusts continued even many anlaen after the eruption, and there was at least one bolt of lightning in the Crossing. Inexplicably, salt crabs appeared at some locations in the Crossing.
The sky is covered with ash and smoke, and we are plunged into Darkness.
SISTER TASRHHSU SAYS PERI’EL NOT DEAD.
When asked to comment on the First’s claim of Peri’el’s death, Sister Tasrhhsu said, “He lies. The Ru’atin would know.” However, she also said, “I fear that she is incapacitated in some way, and being held that way. She does not hear me when I pray at her altar. She does not hear me when I pray to her by name. It is as if she is being held in the very darkness The First has pulled many of us into before.” Explaining, she said that this darkness was, “The encompassing darkness that seems to inflict many of the warriors, leaving them with nothing but their thoughts.”
She now hopes to get word to the Ru’atin on Surlaenis. She believes they will know best what to do. She added, “I think it may become prudent for the Ru’atin to open the Song we carry so that more hands, more voices may aid.”
When asked to comment on the First, she said, “I am told he is susceptible to bards and to mental attacks. He runs when I have begun to get the better of him.” However, she confirmed that the Lilt aids him.
In the moments between fighting and fitful sleep, we pray. Good hunting to you all,
