A most peculiar tale has spread like wildfire over Kelta pertaining to the mysterious lights that miraculously disappeared days prior. Mages reported that it was most likely some sort of astronomical oddity, much like the sudden eclipse from a few months back.
So, if the well-educated folks are claiming a perfectly logical reason, so it would make sense to believe them, right? WRONG. Because for all their fancy claims to logic, not one of these high and powerful mages of Kasinthia still hanging around were actually around to witness the events that happened in Kelta right before the lights disappeared. Witnesses in Kelta report quite a more sinister sight to see.
“I was going about my daily business of hunting rabbits, when this gigantic pillar appeared out of nowhere, but here’s the thing, it was completely go-through. Could not touch a lick of it.”
–Rigia Ngralek, rabbit hunter
“I could have sworn I saw Warowrigh’ kill some weird ghostly looking guy. There were all these people with him, humans, elves, orcs…I thought I was going insane, but nope, definitely was happening, my entire family saw it.”
–Lestrel, fruit seller
“I was guarding the throne room in place of the monarchs, as they were…unavailable, when the Crusaders of the Council randomly appeared in the room. When I questioned them on their sudden appearance, they replied vaguely and cryptically, then apparently one of their elven mages suddenly remembered how to quickly cast the teleportation spell, and they were gone. It was…odd.”
Our interview with resident Keltan citizens have revealed a far more interesting look at what happened when those odd lights appeared in the sky. It would appear that the Gods themselves are continuing their war against each other. And somehow, SOMEHOW, the Crusaders of the Council are involved in this. How are they involved? Who knows, but they are, which means there are a few possibilities as to what they are doing.
This will be a mystery that shall not go unanswered. If anyone has information, please contact the Kasinthian Times, we’re on the verge of crisis here!
