Voice of the Ancients, Tablet IV

Once the truth was known, the Royal Court strived to keep it a closely-guarded secret, for they were fearful that discontent and unrest would be inevitable. Our devout ancestors had passed between the worlds expecting to find a great Sea of Tribute; with all their treasures and comforts waiting for them. All that they believed they would find, the land that they held in their hearts... Of course, it was there waiting for them. Their minds made it so. The knowledge that an eternity of contentment lay just out of reach would cause upheaval; possibly even conflict, among our kin. Life as we knew it would be over. And so the declaration was made. “We go together, or not at all.”
