The prophecy foretold! A Grand Conjuncture was only the beginning, the mad priests speak of the true sundering! But, these visions of realms are just vague and inconclusive. Only the lost Dukkar can reveal more, but Hyskosa is or will at some point be gone… supposedly. I heed you to listen to this prophecy before going forward. To have an audience of the Vistani, let alone hear the words of one such as I, is an honor you should not soon forget. You take interest in the fates, let me tell you more.
First stance: The Forsaken Legion shall make their stand against The Darkest Son and The Original Tragedy, as The Wizard laments his Failed Doorway.
Second stance: The striking down of maidens shall break the dark messiah from a witch, so he may glorify a new King. The King shall enact true change.
Third stance: He who Knits Life and He who is Scorned shall face each other’s fears, a new sin arises from love and another sin is invented.
Fourth stance: Nightmares will take flesh, courts will merge with the horrors of the mind. Those who can’t fight it will be devoured.
Fifth stance: The Warlord will claim great victory, only for holy light to thwart him when it is too late. A guiding angel will emerge for revolution.
Six stance: The Witch Daughter shall unravel the war plan, spiraling campaigns of death into a grim peace. But, the Darkest Son shall gain new family.
Seventh stance: Only The Original Tragedy will endure and face a final test, after a father’s sins are resolved.
Know this, Giorgio, you gain a privilege granted to no others of your kind. Heed the warnings and prepare loved ones around you… End Times are upon us, perhaps even the Vistani.
Author’s Note: Nukes, All Out War, Skaven, The-Flood-meets-the-Eldrazi, Holy Vengeance, the Bride of Frankenstein and the Army of the Damned! Here’s my take on an end all be all for The Mists. Of course, none of it is said in stone and prophecy can be subverted… like with the Grand Conjunction. Should you wish to make adventures out of the Time of Unparalleled Darkness, sample my ideas all you like. After all, I can’t call mine wholly original. Once again, major thanks to the Kargatane and Fraternity of Shadows for being an excellent font of inspiration. Also, I remembered recently that the subject of “Dukkar” shouldn’t be brought up to “Giorgio”. Though, thanks to the Grand Conjunction, the term might be more widely known.
