Dear learned members of the Enclave.

I have a request of your endeavours. there is no reward I give, nor payment I will make. I trust you will determine that what I ask is in itself worth attending.


There is talk of a Prophecy. A Soothspaaken.
It was discovered, written in three parts.
Things so powerful are either written once, or written a thousand times. Which is it?
Does it read differently in differing tongues, does the language of the ancients tell a differing story?
Are there similar texts within your Libraries?
What can you determine from the prophetic or historic words within?

Dear Mr Ash & Dust

I'm happy to help, especially if the request leans towards the cerebral but I admit I'm in need of a little more detail as to the exact nature of your request.

I have some familiarity of Soothspaaken but invariably each mythos is different and each prophesy carries its own gravity towards completion.

Please feel free to share more, here or privately

Magistrate Drake

This is the translation of the documents.
I admit, I am at a loss with such things.
There may well be similar words written elsewhere, it might be written once, I have no idea. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard the term Soothspaaken, I don’t know what tongue speaks the word.

Many feel it is important. It could be a ruse of some power, benign or malign. I just don’t know.



SO UNDER THE WATCHFUL GAZE OF THE STARS WILL IT BEGIN. BY THESE WORDS AND THE EDICTS OF PRIMUS WILL THIS COME TO PASS.
OUR TENURE WILL BE OVER AND THOSE THAT REPLACED US SEPARATED AND ‎DERELICT IN THEIR DUTIES SO OUR WORDS WILL HOLD POWER AGAIN.
AS THIS THE FIRST RISES THE DARKNESS WILL SEEK TO CLAIM THESE WORDS AS ITS OWN. SHOULD IT SUCCEED THEN THE FATES WILL CAST THEIR FIRST DICE AGAINST THE FOCUS.
BUT THE SIGNS WILL GIVE WARNING FOR SCARLENE WILL HAVE FALLEN TO EVIL AND ALGUZ LEFT AND RETURNED. A CITY BROKEN BY DISUNITY WILL BE ON THE ROAD TO HARMONY.
THE LIAR WILL HAVE FALLEN AND THE ANCIENT FOE VANQUISHED.
AND WHERE THE DARKNESS SEEKS TO MAKE ITS CLAIM THE DEAD WILL RISE AS THE FAITHFUL SLEEP AND THE CRAFTER IS HELD IN A MOMENT.

FEAR NOT FOR IT IS THEN THAT THE FIRST WILL BE CHOSEN TO STAND. AS WE CHOSE THOSE THAT WOULD STAND AGAINST THE DANGERS IN THE SECOND AGE WE CHOSE AGAIN.
THEY WILL MAKE THE CHOICE AND DETERMINE THE FATE OF THE FUTURE. WILL THEY FOLLOW THEIR DESTINIES OR FIGHT

THE SOOTHSPAAKEN IF THEY STAND STRONG
THEN PRIMUS WILL PREVAIL

AND IN THEIR STRENGTH WILL PRIMUS BE
SAVED IF THEY REMEMBER SEVEN DEEDS
AND SEVEN FOES WILL HERALD THE END OF
THE EMPIRE AND THOSE THAT SEE THEM
WILL HOLD SWAY AND A CHANCE TO ACT
AND FIND THE SECRETS NEEDED TO GAIN
VICTORY

THE NECKLACES WILL HAVE BEEN TAKEN
FROM THE CLUTCH OF THE DEMONS
THE PAPER AND INK WILL HAVE BEEN
STOLEN
A PLACE OF LOVE WILL TOUCH THIS WORLD
AGAIN
GODS WILL BE CALLED TO MAKE A STAND
AND THEY WILL TURN AWAY
THE PUREST STAR WILL BE BURNT FROM THE
NIGHT SKY
THE MOST POWERFUL BLOOD WILL BE SLAIN
WAR WILL RAGE IN THE LANDS OF AMOURAS
CHILD BETWEEN HER KIN

NATAL SHALL SEEK TO CLAIM THE POWER AT
MY FAMILIES ADVICE
THE FIRES THAT WISH TO CLAIM THE
EXOSTANCE
THE FORGOTTEN SHELL WILL TRY TO RISE
THE CALLER OF THE BEASTS
THE STORM FROM BEYOND THE CALM
THE LORD OF THE ONYX WILL STRIKE

THE FORCE OF NOTHING WILL BE.

AND FROM THESE WARNINGS THE SERVANTS
OF THESE WORDS WILL KNOW TO STAND
READY AND FACE THE GREATEST OF
DANGERS.
FOR HE UNDERSTANDS THE WILL OF THE
WORDS AND THE NATURE OF THE WAYS. HIS
CLAIM WILL BE TRUE AND STRONG AND
NONE WILL STAND AGAINST HIM UNTIL HIS
TRUTH IS REVEALED. THEN ONLY ARMED
WITH THESE WORDS AND THE GIFTS THAT
HAVE BEEN LEFT WILL OUR CHOSEN BE
ABLE TO SUCCEED.

THE WATCHINGS OF THESE WORDS OF YOUR
GODS
THE MASK FOUND IN THE CHEST WITH THE
BANNER OF STARS
THE SHIELD OF A THOUSAND HEROES
THE BLESSING OF A PRIEST YET TO BE BORN
PRIMAL WEAPONS FORGED FROM A PLACE
UNTOUCHED BY POWER

BE WARNED THAT THE LAST PLACE WEAPONS
CAN BE FORGED WILL BE BROKEN IF A
WORD IS SPOKEN IN LOVE.

STAND STRONG AND WE ADMIT WE WERE
WRONG ABOUT OUR CHOICES AS FAR AS WE
COULD SEE

THE TRIURE

Ash

I am pretty sure I am aware of who the lord of the Onyx is and he has been preparing to strike for a long time but my warning were ignored and I failed my duty to Amlas. He is prepared and has in my view already won in Amlas as he already has his pawns in place and just needs to strike.

If I am correct the lord of Onyx is Kuldach Lord of the Shadow lands in Amlas.

Yusaki.

My thanks for identifying this. I think I will need a scribe to ink things at more length than I already manage. I am sorry this reminds you of a perceived failure. I understand some of Amlasian honour, so I am touched you mention this in the retelling.

Yusaki, what family mon or crest do you wear so I know you upon the field?

I have no problem discussing this matter as people still ignore the risk and dangers before them in Amlas as they are too blinded by there Honor to be able to see the truth.

I am house D'treal and I wear no mon but you will know my from my frock coat .

Lord of Onyx could also be one of the Chosen of the Ashen order, I am fairly sure they were never killed and were the first children at the hatching of the Onyx Drake, Tertius May know more.

The Amulet from the clutch of demons reminds me of an amulet from a King on a world the knights tried to save, it was overrun by demons and the amulet was not only a potent artefact but allowed the King to speak with us on Primus I think... it was last seen in the possession of Henry Hope I believe which is almost certainly still the safest place for it.

I’ll ponder the rest.

Correct, just as I survived those times so did some of my counterparts.
I don't know where they went into hiding but I doubt they will stay there forever.

Just to clarify we think it's the Lord of Onyx as Dave Stone has said. Isn't Kuldach to do with the Oryx rather than Onyx.

I believe Dave to be correct too.

My reasoning was that Onyx is death and his is essentially tialy death and destruction in Amlas , uses Onyx magics as do his Oni ( demons) and followers.

The Oryx tribe is just a small part of what and who he is. But primarily he is the lord of hell of Amlas in simple terms.

Tristan has the shield of a thousand hero's. I don't know much about it but he brought it on a recent mission and said the Knights were trying to re empower it.

The Shield is in the Inquisition's keeping and is being given to those entrusted, such as the Lord Knight, who helped in its acquisition, so that they can help empower it. Other trustworthy individuals are welcome to carry it to this end, indeed the Inquisition would welcome it.
