The Age's End Prophecy

Dramatis Personae

Gods and Powers

Roehn Theer

Created by the Nameless as the Sentinel of Balance. He is also known as the Godslayer because he has the power of the twin swords of destiny at his command and has banished even gods to the Void. As the only seraph of the Nameless, Roehn Theer is responsible for ensuring no being ever becomes powerful enough to disrupt the universe he protects.

Aeteok and Enoxus

Created by the Nameless and given to Roehn Theer, these mighty twin swords helped him to focus his power, and to carry out his sentences when necessary. They were lost to Roehn Theer after he was cast into the Void, and eventually fell to Norrath. When discovered by the mortals, they became to be known as the Twin Swords of Destiny, Soulfire and the Qeynos Claymore.

Kerafyrm

The one and only prismatic dragon, Kerafyrm was the forbidden offspring of two opposite colored dragons. Once known as the Sleeper, he was awakened during the Age of Turmoil, and has since begun his plans to conquer Norrath and the heavens. Tremendously powerful beyond the scope of his kin, Kerafyrm's plans threaten the existence of all.

Anashti Sul

Once the Goddess of Health, Anashti Sul attempted to destroy death itself, and in doing so introduced undeath to Norrath. The actions of Anashti Sul were so fearful, that the other gods of Norrath saw fit to banish her to the Void, in an attempt to destroy her forever. Since her escape from the Void, Anashti Sul is plotting to reclaim what she believes is rightfully hers.

Mortals

Antonius Bayle

The first of the great Bayle line, the original mortal possessor of the Qeynos Claymore, and the founder of Qeynos before the Shattering.

Antonia Bayle

Antonia Bayle is the Queen of Qeynos, the only surviving heir to the Bayle lineage. For years, she was viewed by the public as little more than a figurehead, with the Qeynos Council seemingly ruling the city and its affairs. However, Queen Antonia has shown recently that she is not content to let others take over her charge, and will guide Qeynos and its citizens with wisdom, compassion, and courage

Lucan D'Lere

The Overlord, Ruler of Freeport and the only mortal possessor of Soulfire. That is, until he was recently kidnapped and dispossessed. He has successfully returned and is once again taking charge of Freeport, making it into a power once again.

Tayil N'Velex

Tayil had always been Lucan D'Lere's right hand, and his most trusted advisor. She would speak for him in his absence, and would carry out his wishes without fail. However, when approached by the agents of Theer and given an opportunity to overtake Freeport for her own gains, she betrayed Lucan and attempted to carry out a plan of conquest of her own.

The Knights of Truth

The order of knighthood in Qeynos closest to the throne and responsible for the care of the royal family and city.

Erus Dal'viv

A mysterious erudite entrusted by the Duality to carry the inert Swords of Destiny, Erus Dal'viv embodies all of the virtues of the now-extinct Deepwater Knights. He works directly with the Duality on his efforts to learn more about the Age's End prophecy, carrying out tasks assigned to him, and helping to lead the Deepwater Circle

The Duality

Made up of two of the greatest erudite minds ever known, Dartain and Al'Kabor, there are few, if any, who can match the intelligence of the Duality. Using his vast knowledge, the Duality is attempting to piece together seemingly unrelated and sometimes fragmented pieces of information to try to decipher, and counter, the cataclysmic prophecy known as Age's End. The Duality is one of the few who understand the extent of the peril that Norrath faces, and is looking to rally scholars, rulers, and adventurers to join together to ensure the survival of all.

Dame Livik

Our story's narrator. An othmir shaman of Osh's tribe, she is the Lore Warden for her people, studied under Nipik, alongside Osh, and has been involved with the study of the Age's End Prophecy for many years.

The Twin Swords of Destiny

"It's so dangerous here now," a small, muffled voice complained.

The dame glanced at her wards huddled in a pile on the bed furs. They pretended to be sleeping, but she knew they were not. Sleep was a fragile thing in a world that had become so frightfully violent and the pups often watched her closely, determining their own safety by how she acted herself.

"Life has always been dangerous for us, small ones. Even more so now that the gods and all the world seem to focus on our land." She looked down at them and smiled reassuringly. "But we are swift and cunning and hard to hurt, are we not?" The litany of the othmir mollified them a bit and she even got a few nods. Finally, her brightest small one spoke up.

"Are they all looking here because of the prophecy?"

"Many of them do not know that they are here for that reason," she replied, "but yes, they are all here due to events that were foretold in that prophecy."

"Will you tell us the legend again, Dame Livik?"

...Lucan isn't mortal... He's a Liche... right?

In any event, I wanted to stop in and at least set the record straight - you aren't going to be seeing RMT allowed on the non-exchange enabled servers.

Mortal in this sense can also mean non-gods. But even Liche's can die.

Still subject to death, er, re-death, so by definition still a mortal.

Oh, and it IS rightfully hers! Down with the poseur-usurper, Rodcet Nife! SMILEY

Considering that my main is one of her priests, and I quite enjoy roleplaying it, I do hope that there's some fun stuff on the horizon, here.
