D&D: The Eighth One – Translation 2

THE EIGHTH ONE – TRANSLATION 2
PREVIOUS: The Eighth One – Session 6
NEXT: The Eighth One – Session 7 – Part 1

As with the first Divine Text, this was another tablet for the party to translate and to learn some of the background for the campaign. This used the same key as the first text, but the tablet this time was found at Haulpa’s shrine atop the Plateau of Throal.

Second Divine Text

The second text translated as…

AS LIGHT SPREAD OVER THE LAND THE DIVINE BEINGS TOOK THE RESPONSIBILITY OF GUIDING THE FREE MORTAL RACES AND ESTABLISHED CIVILIZATION IN THE EIGHT LANDS OF THE WORLD    THE RACES OF LIGHT FLOURISHED AND ENTERED A GOLDEN ERA WHILST THE DIVINE BEINGS LED THEM THROUGH THE AVATARS

EVER VIGILANT FOR THE RETURN OF DARKNESS TO THE WORLD THE DIVINE BEINGS FREQUENTLY RETURNED TO THE VOID FROM WHICH THEY CAME LOOKING FOR SIGNS    IT WAS DURING ONE OF THESE JOURNEYS THAT THE DIVINE BEING MALAK AL-MAUT RETURNED CHANGED IN A WAY THAT ONLY THE DIVINE BEINGS THEMSELVES COULD FATHOM

MALAK AL-MAUT BROODED FOR MANY DECADES HIS AVATAR RARELY EMERGED TO GUIDE THE PEOPLE WHOM HE LED    AS HIS LIGHT DIED, SO TOO DID THE HOPES OF HIS PEOPLE AND A SHADOW CREPT OVER THE LAND AND DARKNESS SEEPED FROM THE CRACKS OF ITS FOUNDATIONS    BEFORE LONG THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD LOST ALL CONTACT WITH THE LAND AND IT WAS NEARLY FORGOTTEN UNTIL THEY RETURNED FIVE HUNDERED YEARS LATER

THE RACES OF MALAK AL-MAUT WERE TRANSFORMED TWISTED SHADOWS OF THEIR FORMER SELVES    THEY CAME TO THE OTHER LANDS OF THE DIVINE BEINGS AND DROVE ALL BEFORE THEIR CORRUPTION THEIR JAGGED SWORDS AND THEIR RAGGED BANNERS    THEY WEILDED CORRUPT MAGIC OF THE VOID MAGIC THAT HAD NOT BEEN SEEN IN THOUSANDS OF YEARS SINCE THE LAST OF THE DARKNESS HAD BEEN DRIVEN FROM THE WORLD

THE WAR LASTED A THOUSAND YEARS
