Merfolk's Lullaby

Voice of the Ancients, Tablet V

Voice of the Ancients, Tablet V

Voice of the Ancients, Tablet V, by the Ancient Priest.

A mask was formed, and gems — cut from the same stone we had always used to move between the worlds — were set into its features. At the same time, my Queen prepared our people for a great journey, though most were kept oblivious to the true nature of their new home. Some remained behind. Those deemed dangerous or disruptive, the Eternal Guard — who were left to honour their oath — and the High Priest. He was the one who wore the mask, providing us passage to our new home. When his work was done, he cast the mask into the deep and scattered its stones. That is where our story should have ended. But now that the truth is known, I fear that even paradise may not last forever...
