THE PROPHECY AND THE KEYS



The Prophecies have been whispered around fires and passed down through the ages.  An Ancient named Legolian wrote them down, but the ancient tongue in which they are written is both a motly of ancient Chimaeran and human tongues.  These are some of the loose translations of the passages scholars have discovered, but are in no particular order:

Flesh calls to Flesh
As Light calls to Dark
The great King has fallen
And from his ashes the deadly flower blooms
His death heralds the beginning and the end
Seven summers of war across the sea shall follow
Where blood rains in the streets and the meek rise and devour the wild ones

[Marius' death? The Venice Jyhad? Has it begun?]

Thirteen in number, no more no less shall unlock the gates...
One will rise from the dead,
The torn princess with words of Fortune on her stained lips
The frozen stone, the blade that screams...
Gaia's heart given freely, the hand of the Beast...

A vision of destruction appears near the throne
As the great king has fallen into shadow. 

Beware of the shadows, sorrow lies within. The stranger approaches, singing a song of death...

The leech will attach itself to the wolf...

The great quarrel of the Two Lords
Dark blood will run
With the chosen son
Releasing the daughter of light

The warrior and the lostů[baby/child?]
Their destinies fated
Death embraces them both to bring life

The old eagle shall lose his heart
Near the sea in a silver chariot

Darkness comes with wings

Death will not claim the Goddess' chosen heart...

Where ivory towers meet the eastern sea
Twelve lords and ladies of the empire will...
Fear extracts vain sacrifice until the raging pyre is quenched...
...Will be devoured by the darkness or spared by the...

Two wounds from one, shall die a cruel death
And the young lion shall claim the prize.

The world is close to [the end/beginning?]
