“The Years of Making shall unfold as you do our will and prepare the world for the Elder Races. The Firmament shall be raised for the Suns and Stars and you shall make the Gods of Light. The Pattern of the Seasons shall be made and the Elder Races shall arise, bringing with them the Years of Glory and the Elder Days, which shall be great beyond imagining. Songs praising them shall echo to the stars and back. The Twice Forged Sword shall be made and remade and the heroes of the Prophecies shall be born. Yet even then, Darkness shall endure and cast its shadow. Sorrow shall enter the world, born from love gone wrong, and usher in the Age of Tears. In the end, the Elder Days shall fade and their majesty shall be lost; only a few shall remain, testament to the kingdoms of old. Then the Herald shall return and the Girdle shall grow again. The Age of Man shall follow; the last of our children shall awaken and attain new glories. The Days of Myth shall unfold and Mankind shall come into its heritage and blanket the earth. Thus shall the days of Sangrar be fulfilled, until the Gates of Heaven crumble and the Long Night begins.”
“These are the Prophecies of the Ages, as told by Kandol Elf Lord, who learned them from the Lady of Esel. First uttered by the Primals following the Feast of Creation, they were our faith and watchword through the ages. Though my humble prose falls woefully short, may you remember them nonetheless, noble reader, in this new age where the gods have forsaken us and only one Sun shines, and think fondly of those who came before you.” Jerilyn of Colcester.
