The Prophecy of the Shadow
In the Fifth Age, a half-elf by the name of Aerian became known as a gifted diviner. Before her death, she foretold of a great evil, one that would sweep across the world and turn it on its head. The only recorded version of it is held within the Temple of Advertius, though the location of the temple is known only to a few.
“The Great Tower will fall, burning to the ground from an unquenchable flame. From its ashes, a man will rise. A blade will come to him, made of the combined powers of the Gods. He will ravage the land, rend cities, and destroy everything. His influence will blanket Archea, spreading far and wide. But…there is hope…the Seven Sigils of the Creator, lost eons before, have the power to stop him.”
