Exhaustion crushes down on you, mingled with a sense of failure so profound, movement itself feels impossible.  Through half-open eyes, you gaze at a crumbling stone floor with a few shards of greyish metal.  The vision fades as you draw a deep breath, but the sense of a life destroyed lingers.

Rising from within the normal sounds that surround you, a haggard male voice calls out.  The words "No more!  Please, no more!" ring in your ears, each time identical.  After what seems like endless repetitions, the voice finally fades with a quiet sob.

A dull ache in your side blooms into full-blown agony, your normal senses falling to the wayside as you are thrown into another vision!  A humanoid shape morphs and bleeds into numerous forms before you, each melting into the next to become a blur of fur, skin, scales, and barbs.  Just for a second, you think you see an enormous set of wings begin to sprout from the creature, but your vision is cut short by a blinding light!  As your sight returns, it becomes clear that you are oriented to the mundane world once more.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/17/2017 20:40:20 CDT|vision=
Disorientation overwhelms you as you find yourself in the grip of another vision!  Your swimming head begins to settle and you find yourself looking upon your husband and children, their faces wracked with fear as the militants drag them from your grip, yet they say nothing.  You are both proud and enraged at this, but you too hold your tongue though every fiber of your being screams in defiance against the atrocities being forced upon your people ... and those that you will be forced now to do to others.  The vision fades and your consciousness is again your own, yet a profound sense of despair and rage lingers on.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/17/2017 19:10:16 CDT|vision=
A wave of dizziness washes over you.  The sound of music and laughter rings in from somewhere nearby, accompanied by the heady aroma of fresh baked goods and the savory scent of roasted meat.  With all your senses enticed to seek out the gathering, you lean forward as if to take a step.  Chains that bind you to a cold stone wall rattle and bring you to a reality where your yearning for a friendly face competes with your hunger for edible food.  Disappointment overwhelms you as the vision fades and the world you know returns.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/15/2017 21:49:09 CDT|vision=
A sudden, sharp pain signals the coming of another vision!  As your head begins to clear, you see brief snippets of shadowed figures gathered together and talking in hushed, conspiratorial tones.  Though you re unable to make out what is being said in articulable words, you are left with the distinct impression that the group intends to cause some sort of magical disturbance.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/14/2017 13:07:14 CDT|vision=
A veil descends over your sight.  It parts to reveal a pair of green eyes.  Drawing back further, a blue-scaled face framed by long raven-hued hair comes into view.  A slender lock falls free and curls over the woman's face.  Tossing her head to return it fails, so she winks flirtatiously before raising a razor-clawed hand to brush it back.  The slow smile she flashes seems friendly enough, but those eyes hold a hint of menace in their depths.  As she opens her mouth to speak, the veil closes and your surroundings return to normal.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/11/2017 11:08:26 CDT|vision=
Echoing within your consciousness, a youthful voice chants a spell reminiscent of Moongate, yet subtly wrong.  The casting is interrupted by an occasional muttering, and the rustle of paper.  As the sound drones on, the voice changes, imbued with maturity and confidence.  A sudden silence is shredded by a deafening crackling and a triumphant howl that cuts off abruptly.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/11/2017 17:35:39 CDT|vision=
Darkness overtakes your mundane vision, and you feel as though you are falling into an endless void -- your form, your very self becoming meaningless as it mingles with the sheer profundity of the nothing that engulfs you.  Your mind teeters on the edge of dissolution, and, as you slip into the finality of unbeing, the darkness shifts into a fetid green!  With a panicked lurch, your true mind snaps back to the fore, and you find yourself once again in the here and now.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/11/2017 06:44:27 CDT|vision=
Darkness replaces reality, creeping in from the edges of your vision like fog.  Paler figures emerge from the murk, moving toward an unseen goal.  A sense of uneasiness washes over you as a single blue eye flashes into view over them.

{{Visions|date=4/11/2017 06:40:32 CDT|vision=
Your vision gradually darkens from tiny pinpricks of shadow, as if a flock of approaching birds were slowly blotting out the light from above.  In the moment before everything fades to complete darkness, a blinding explosion erupts beside you, sending you careening backward and flipping end-to-end like a ragdoll.  As your head slams against the floor you instinctively tense and startle, only to blink and find yourself as you were before the vision took hold.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/11/2017 06:33:17 CDT|vision=
The world shifts around you and you find yourself in a cluster of your peers, laughing heartily.  With enormous glee you raise your arms up with your fellows and the world dissolves, you along with it.  Your last thought is that of righteous joy before you are wrenched by a sudden burning sensation!  Almost at once, though, your flesh cools, and you find yourself as you were before the vision came.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/11/2017 06:20:29 CDT|vision=
The sound of children's laughter rings in from somewhere nearby, drawing your attention to a small group of children.  A game of tag has them out of breath from giggling as much as from running.  One girl stands off to the side, her citrine-hued eyes darting from one child to the next.  In a clear voice, she calls out to one child, then another, her words muted with distance, but her commands clear as the runners change course at her instruction.  There's something strange about the children, but the vision fades before you can place it.

{{Visions|date=4/6/2017 16:45:58 CDT|vision=
As a faint prickling sensation tickles the back of your neck, a vision forms.  Entombed in a dimly lit cell, your very essence is as cold as stone.  A shaft of brighter light spreads along the floor as the door creaks open, but hope has been dead too long to raise your shackled hand.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/6/2017 10:53:30 CDT|vision=
Wavering before your mind's eye, a sumptuous scene appears.  Surrounded by rich tapestries and finely crafted furnishings, the profile of a crowned figure stands gesturing grandly at something seen through a window.  Seated nearby, quill in hand, a Human man writes steadily, filling a page with notes while glancing at the speaker from time to time.  During a lull in the speech, the writer reaches toward an intricate insignia at his shoulder, brushing something from one of its curves.  A smile crosses his face as the vision fades.
|sub= |rep= False}}

{{Visions|date=4/6/2017 08:47:44 CDT|vision=
Between one blink of your eyes and the next, a face takes shape, hovering in mid-air.  Crystal blue eyes in a greyish face gaze into the distance.  A certain coldness in their expression turns more menacing as the eyes narrow in rage.  As quickly as it formed, the face vanishes.
|sub= |rep= False}}
{{Visions|date=4/5/2017 19:02:08 CDT|vision=
Your vision gradually darkens from tiny pinpricks of shadow, as if a flock of approaching birds were slowly blotting out the light from above.  In the moment before everything fades to complete darkness, a blinding explosion erupts beside you, sending you careening backward and flipping end-to-end like a ragdoll.  As your head slams against the floor you instinctively tense and startle, only to blink and find yourself as you were before the vision took hold.
|sub= |rep= False}}
Your senses blur and twist, leaving you reeling for a moment.  As you stabilize yourself, you see an emaciated female with pale skin and fiery hair.  Her dark robes swirl, and you find yourself lost in their blackness, falling as if into the Void itself.  Just when you feel as though your soul might be torn asunder, you awake from your vision with a jolt!
|sub=Void |rep= Unknown}}
Out of an ill-omened night appears a starlight sphere -- frigid beauty and constellatory power whittled down to a width of two fingers.  As you silently pay homage to the occult patterns and equations that make such things possible, a talon tip of living shadow reaches from below, through unwholesome probabilities, and pops the sphere.  The night is then painted a violet bloodier than that of the Nightingale.
|sub=Starlight Sphere, Shadow Creatures |rep= True}}
Something begins to think aloud in your own voice.  Although you know that the voice is not you, not even Human, you cannot bring yourself to feel any alarm.
"The high temple calls it the Misenseor Tragedy."
"Not too long ago, the abbey was a lair of sin, where dark monks committed atrocities not so different from the necromancers they reviled with zeal.  They lived like fat spiders in the middle of a web of wilderness, preying on the people of two provinces.  I do not remember being there, but I must have been.  How else could I know all this, recognize every monastic cell and every long-dead soul in it?..."
|sub=Misenseor Abbey |rep= True}}
Something begins to think aloud in your own voice.  Although you know that the voice is not you, not even Human, you cannot bring yourself to feel any alarm.
"...Today I am surrounded by new monks.  Children, compared to those wicked intellects of old, but good children nonetheless who bear my Ichor.  Although they carve patterns into their spirits in my image, those are faulty and arid things that sleep far too much.  My dearest Kylshun says that I am matchless, that none can see so deep as I.  I understand that now, just as I understand he used to be one of the sinners.  And yet he saw the error of his ways; moreover, he reforged his error into the greatest Good this plane may ever witness.  I have forgiven him.  I would forgive him anything.  We are, after all, one and the same."
"They call it the Misenseor Tragedy, when in fact there was nothing tragic about it.  They all died, we all died, and it was divine."
"It was the day of my birth."
|sub=Kylshun, Misenseor Abbey |rep= True}}
Nervous babbling fills your mind.
"Things were going so well.  Nobody suspected, and they probably still don't, but that can't last long now.  We're ruined, thanks to my...colleague."
"My work has been quiet and benign as can be: sundering weak aetheric forces through application of para-elements.  But Liao... He has found something bigger.  Worse, he has done something to himself.  If I didn't know better, I'd call it unholy, Meraud save me.  That's impossible!  I'm not sure how much longer I can hide him.  They say there's a Grovekeeper disguised among us, which terrifies me beyond reason.  If he or she finds out...  Oh Liao, Liao!  They do not forgive!"
"I don't know what to do, who to turn to.  Liao isn't quite himself.  So much fear and paranoia have sapped my appetite, and I feel sick all the time.  Gods, I've even lost my beard.  I can't go to an empath.  I must lie low and pursue my own breakthrough before everything comes crashing down."
|sub=Hylomorphic Sorcery, Grovekeeper, Liao |rep= True}}
A women clad in tan robes sits in quiet contemplation, a silvery moonblade resting in her lap.  Her fingers flow over the surface of the blade, carefully inspecting and manipulating the currents within.  A frown briefly crosses her face as the blade dances with shadowy imperfections.  She makes a rapid correction to stabilize the pattern before continuing with her study.  "He's right ...it's possible, at least in theory."
|sub=Moonblade |rep= True}}
An angular elf races along the shore clutching an inky black moonblade.  Silver-gilt hair and black robes flows like waves as he closes on his prey - an anthropomorphic blur of garish colors.  His blade flashes and crimson sears the air.
"I know of your secret, your shame.  And I enjoy tearing it away from you."
The sun settles onto the horizon, igniting the sand with auburn hues.  The elf stands over the blood-crusted corpse, his moonblade crackling with purple energy as he stares contemptibly at a dozen colorful foes.
"Tsk tsk.  What would they think if they knew?"
Your eyes linger on the lone symbol adorning his robes --  a blacked oak shrew.
|sub=Karosti |rep= True}}
You hear a shrill cry from behind, and as you reflexively turn toward the sound the world around you shifts into an alternate scene.  A golden-haired Elothean, wide-eyed and disheveled, stands before an elegant archway which is blocked by a stocky Dwarven woman.  The Elothean points her finger beyond the egress and exclaims, "The dove calls!  We must answer she who is the Mother of lasting peace -- move aside!"  Grunting with dissatisfaction, the Dwarf says, "Child, I've had enough," and with a brief invocation and light touch, her companion falls unconscious.  The image slowly fades as the Dwarf shifts her guard from the exit to the body on the floor.
|sub= |rep= }}
At the sound of a distant sob, a vision forms before your eyes.  Huddled by the leg of an enormous dead spider, a dark-haired Gnome gazes up at a cloaked figure.  His expression reveals abject despair as tears stain his face and the front of his vest.  Though nothing about the wearer of the cloak is clear, the stance is that of someone caught up in a gale of laughter.
|sub= |rep= }}
An off-key whistle slides along the edge of your nerves, phasing in and out of time with an unevenly timed tapping.  After a moment, it slows to a halt, and you feel the sensation of fetid breath at the back of your neck.  The scent of something earthy with a coppery brightness wafts over you, then fades.
|sub= |rep= }}
Heat embraces you from nowhere, leaving a prickling sensation along every nerve.  A rough voice whispers, "Of course, I should have known.  But how could I know?"  A soft sob interrupts the voice, but the whisper returns again and again.  After a dozen or more repetitions, the voice suddenly stops, then shouts, "Silence!" as a blast of chilled air surrounds you before everything fades into your mind.
|sub= |rep= }}
An icy chill assaults your body, running swiftly from head to toe as if water had been poured onto you, while your vision grows dim.  Blurry shapes like driftwood floating amid emerald depths are all you can discern for a few moments after the initial shock.  Slowly, you manage to make out the shapes more clearly, and come to recognize the grizzly remains of many unfortunate victims adrift in the sea amid shattered flotsam.  Your vision focuses with clarity enough to glimpse a large island in the distance, as storm clouds quickly gather above the large, tiered city perched upon its southern shore.  With a jolt you find yourself snapped back to the here and now, left with only the memory of what you have seen.
|sub= Invasion, Ratha, Drogor |rep= }}
Searing white light momentarily blinds your vision!  When it begins to clear into hues of sea foam, you glimpse the ghost-image of a cog plowing through the sea, just off the shore of a large island, its multi-tiered city receding slowly into the distance.  With the vision continuing to fade, you watch the ship dashed by a monstrous wave and scattered to flotsam before the approach of storm clouds descending upon the city.  With another blink of your eyes, the vision has faded entirely.
|sub= Invasion, Ratha, Drogor |rep= }}
Warmth washes over you and you feel your attention slipping away to a cloudy day at the beach.  Waves wash up on soft sand below the sky of grey, and sea birds call out.  Suddenly, under the sand, something stirs.  A fin appears and heads right toward a small group of children building a sand castle.  Their parents, on a nearby veranda, don't notice.  Until the screaming starts.  Your eyes snap open and the world you know returns.
|sub= Invasion, Crossing, sharks |rep= }}
Matte eyes, dark as night itself,  flash before yours.  The dark face surrounding the eyes is nearly devoid of features, though it is sticking its very red tongue out at you.  Then, the tongue drops to the ground with a soft splat.  The eyes move closer, focused on your mouth before a breeze blows them away.
|sub= Hollow Eve |rep= }}
Counterpoint to the noises around you, faint footsteps and the whisper of fabric dragging along the ground capture part of your attention.  The sound draws off and fades away to silence, leaving you with nothing but a slightly uneasy feeling.
|sub= |rep= }}
Darkening slightly, your vision is drawn to an image of several constellations. The Adder and the Weasel slowly circle each other as the Spider at the center spins a web. When the Spider is done, all the other stars are enrobed in webbing and their lights begin to dim. The Spider flashes reddish fangs as the scene fades from your sight.
|sub= Asketi, Huldah, Harawep |rep= }}
A hallway filled with package-laden shoppers fills your field of vision, cheerful faces and happy voices abound.  Drawing back, the scene shifts.  A Gnome stands in a field, gently stroking the leg of an oversized arachnid.  As the scene fades, you hear his voice crooning a lullabye.
|sub= Hollow Eve |rep= }}
A shift in your mind's eye allows you the vantage point of a bird, soaring near a vast temple complex.  As you float past a window, a scene inside captures your attention.  A priestess in simple robes of fine dark silk wanders along a hallway with her attention fixed upon a scroll in her hands.  She does not notice the heavy strand of spider silk that rises before her foot to send her sprawling.  As the scene fades, a dry chuckle echoes through your mind.
|sub= |rep= }}
"Bones, bones, bones!"  The words dissolve into giggling and the sound of running feet.  So very many running feet!  A sickly meow turns into a yowl that fades into the distance.  It takes a moment to realize you haven't moved.  But, maybe you should...
|sub= Invasion, murder doll, Riverhaven |rep= }}
Bright before your eyes, a vision forms.  A wide field on a mountain side, green against the grey, holds crowds awaiting something.  As you observe, something brushes against the side of your head.  Step, step, step, it creeps to your forehead, then takes one more step onto the center of your pupil.  At your involuntary blink, the vision snaps shut, but your eye continues to burn for a while.
|sub= Hollow Eve |rep= }}
Unbearable itching at your eyes leaves you with no remedy but to close them tightly and rub.  Opening them at the first sign of relief, you realize that your vision has fractured.  Fragments of the things you recognized a moment ago swirl and swoop as you turn your head, inducing nausea and disorientation.  After a few blinks, you see normally again, but leave you with a lingering headache.
|sub= Invasion, Asketi, Crossing |rep= }}
Your vision momentarily dims, and you could swear you hear a faint "Tick. Tick. Tick." in the periphery of your hearing. Just as your vision begins to clear, you see the ominous image of a shadowed street with small, malevolent figures scampering in and out of what little light there is. Abruptly, your sight and hearing return to normal.
|sub= Invasion, murder dolls, Fang Cove |rep= False}}
Gurgling, almost like a hungry belly, echoes around you. The air thickens with a cloying humidity as a dark shape floats toward you. Cold as blued steel, an eye stares at nothing just before jagged ivory teeth flash into view. A thud at your very core takes your breath away as the creature engulfs you, but as you blink again, your world returns to normal.
|sub= |rep= }}
Glancing down, a network of shiny lines comes into view. Trying to follow one leads you into a spiral of glistening pattern of black and dark blue that pulsates around you. Something clammy and moist drags itself along your ankle just as your vision returns to the world you know.
|sub= |rep= }}
Hunger striking your belly like a hammer forces you to hunch forward. As you try to stand, a noticeable shift in your surroundings is evident. People run screaming at your approach, and mingled with your confusion is the distinct desire to rip them apart and tear their very souls out. As you get a victim in your grasp, you find yourself back in the world you know, with a lingering ache in your abdomen.
|sub= |rep= }}
A sense of urgency washes over you, and you catch sight of an ironwood drawbridge being hastily drawn closed.  Shouts and the frantic waving of guards at something just out of sight fades as the drawbridge closes.  Those cries are soon replaced by the sound of moving water and the intense scent of salt on the air.
|sub= invasion, Drogor, Therenborough |rep= False}}
An unusually warm raindrop lands at the back of your neck and slowly trickles down. A swirling pattern appears in the air overhead, pale spots on iridescence. Undulating slowly, an eel coalesces into the air, silvery eyes focused intently on your face. A sense of paralysis holds you as the eel drapes itself over your shoulders, cool and slick around your neck. Tighter, tighter, then suddenly gone, leaving a lingering chill that slowly fades.
|sub= |rep= }}
Between one breath and the next, your vision turns inward. A sunrise sky, filled with opalescent hues, frames a single tree. Drawing nearer you notice that the deep green leaves carry veins of red and orange. A shrike perched on a branch sings, but falls silent as you observe. Suddenly, a cloud of butcherbirds descends. Just before they reach the shrike, the everyday world reforms around you.
|sub= |rep= }}
A child's giggle catches your attention, and you find your attention drawn away to another vision. A pair of Olvi children in ragged clothes play with dolls made of sticks. They turn as one at a scraping sound, and shriek with delight as a doll drags itself into view. Rust-colored streaks along its face and hands, combined with the madness in its eyes, leave no doubt as to its identity, but the children only see a doll, and rush toward it. Just as they stretch their hands to grasp it, a flash of light distracts you and you are surrounded by the world you know.
|sub= |rep= }}
Warmth and wetness engulf you, bringing a sensation of suffocation. The world is unchanged except for a translucent membrane that resists your frantic clawing. Dimly, from overhead, the sound of hoots and shrieks rise in volume. The sound you'd like to make only results in an air bubble, slithering up the inside of the skin you're in. Your senses fade until only a single point of light remains in your field of vision. As that blinks shut, your normal surroundings return.
|sub= |rep= }}
Exasperated hissing envelops you, close enough to feel the exhalation against your face.  As the sound ends, a pair of mismatched eyes waver into sight, staring from a skeletal S'Kra Mur woman's face.  Her expression reflects a mingling of disappointment with a hunger so intense it leaves you feeling hollow.  Reaching toward your throat with a skeletal, clawed hand, she fades just before making contact."
|sub= |rep= }}
Creeping along your spine despite the warmth of summer, a chill pulls your attention to another vision.  A massive stone gate leads into a city.  On platforms above, Gor'Togs and Dwarves move to defend it.  Just as a shadowy mass approaches, you are snapped back to the real world.
|sub=Invasion, Hibarnhvidar |rep= False}}
The world suddenly fades to shadow around you.  A tiny mote of sickly green light emerges from the darkness, hovering eerily in a self-repeating, circular pattern.  Your perspective rapidly expands, as if you were being shot into the air, and the image of a four-pointed crystal star surrounded by a ring of water is visible below you, circumscribed by the ominous green nova.  The light explodes into four snaking lines that streak toward each tip of the star.  A piercing wail echoes in your mind as your vision returns to the here and now.
|sub= Asketi, Invasion, Shard |rep= False}}
A vivid blue burst of light blots out your mundane senses, and you suddenly find yourself floating above a sea dotted with tiny bits of brown and green.  The scene dissolves as suddenly as it came on, though now it is a churning sanguine-tinged red that dominates your vision.  You barely make out what appears to be flailing limbs within the ever-changing whorls before you are jolted back into the here and now by a wet thud against your head!
|sub= Drogor, Invasion, Ratha |rep= False}}
A violent crushing blow slams into you, blotting out your mundane senses as you find yourself in the grip of a vision!  You reel from the impact and begin to steady yourself when a sudden overwhelming chill permeates your body.  Frozen in place, you become dully aware of writhing forms all around you, flashes of black and brown highlighting the movement. A sharp pain snaps you back into reality before you can discern much more, but you are left with a lingering unease that goes beyond mere physical sensation.
|sub=Slender Ribbon Adder, Invasion |rep= False }}
Your vision blurs for a moment and the light of Xibar is diminished by countless fluttering wings.  A gust of wind disperses them and leaves your skin feeling frostbitten.  A voice as bitter as the cold whispers, "Soon, Khal Gwaerd."
|sub=Hibarnhvidar, Invasion, Khal Gwaerd |rep= False}}
Your vision spins as you feel the forces of Fate and Probability pulling you into yet another vision!
Darkness.  A voice call to you, soft and shadowed like Mother's.  It must be Mother's.  Your body undulating, you take heed and make your way into the waking world once more.
The velvety caress that had ensconced you is suddenly ripped from your body, and you find yourself back in the here and now, albeit with a lingering dull headache.
|sub= |rep= False}}
A blur of jumbled sights and sounds rushes to overtake you, assaulting your senses with potentiality!  You steel yourself against the onslaught, trying to hold on to even the briefest coherency.  As the vision passes, you find yourself with lingering thoughts of blood falling from the sky upon a weeping lion that holds both day and night within its mighty jaws.
|sub= |rep= False}}
Mists swirl about you, coalescing into a pair of figures pouring over a cluttered desk.  Though the words are distorted, it is clear they are engaged in a passionate argument.  One, an older Elf, points towards his chest before pounding a fist on the desk.  This causes the Elothean to jerk away from the table, a look of disgust on her face which she quickly suppresses.  Shoulders slumped she claims a single slender volume from the desk and walks away.
|sub= Taramaine, Raelyka, Braun's Conjecture|rep= True}}
Soot and smoke suddenly assault your senses of sight, smell, and taste.  Through the oily blackness, you glimpse a dragon-headed man striding confidently across a battlefield, spewing bright scarlet flames wherever he goes and swinging orange-yellow fists at silhouetted enemies between breaths.
|sub= |rep= True}}
You find yourself dangling over the edge of a sheer rockface, gripped at the scruff of your neck by a transparent hand.  You struggle and claw, but your flailings only meet empty air.  Instead of simply dropping you, your captor flings you out with such force that the vision itself jars violently, coming to an end, even as you hear your own frightened yell trailing off in the distance.
|sub= |rep= True}}
Solid shadows roll before your eyes, becoming twelve glass marbles laid out on a swath of dark blue satin.  From the edges of the fabric a purple smolder encroaches inward ever so slowly.  With callous patience, you watch it reach one of the marbles and cause it to fall into a black, burnt hole, only then feeling a twist of grief in your heart.
|sub=Planets |rep= True}}
You see a pair of glowing blue hands with slender fingers and lacquered nails.  As you watch, water slowly pools up in the cupped palms, tinted metallic blue by the glow.  However, you notice that the water does not behave like water at all: it sporadically climbs into the air in little forked tendrils, passes through the flesh of the hands without dripping below, and froths over with sparks.  After several seconds, the hands begin trembling and throw away the strange liquid, which crackles into nothingness.
|sub= |rep= True}}
You see an oaken arrow flying straight and true through the air.  Abruptly, the arrow slows down in its flight and starts curving upward.  Within seconds the arrow has bent into a circle without cracking and sits rigidly suspended in space.
|sub= |rep= True}}
Darkness engulfs you as you find yourself lost to another vision!  Emerging from a cave, a massive Gor'Tog warrior snarls as he raises his weapons, shaking blood from both them and the bear hide he is wearing.  The man stomps and howls as the ground beneath his feet morphs into a pile of Elpalzi corpses!  Your vision dissolves into a sanguine mist and the once-deafening sounds of rage subside, leaving you with only but a whispered phrase repeating in your mind -- "Drathrok's Duskruin."
|sub=Drathrok, Gor'Tog, Elpalzi |rep= False}}
Your worldly senses are overwhelmed by an onslaught of jumbled images and sounds!  For the briefest moment, the chaos solidifies long enough for you to make out the image of a giant bear supporting a field of valiant fighters training upon its massive back.  Gladiolus blossoms sprout from the pooling blood of their fallen enemies just as the preternatural scene fades away, leaving you in the here and now once again.

A shadowy haze descends upon your surroundings as your vision shifts.  As you adjust, a decaying fort comes into view, though it's little more than burned wood and mounds of mud and rubble.  Ancient soldiers that no longer draw breath, each wearing uniforms of a forgotten time, rise up only to be blasted into oblivion by robed mages.  As your surroundings return, you hear a faint whisper, "Lord Alret will rule all, you know."

Your sight is suddenly snatched away by an intense vision, but you first hear a scream of feral anger rather than see it.  The image of the Faldesu river appears, quiet at first but then beginning to churn and boil.  Skeletal figures rise from it, dancing at the hands of an unseen puppet.

A strange, oily sensation creeps across your flesh and you feel as if you are falling. The world around you grows dim and distant, and you become aware of the disjointed elements of a scene that is both here and not.
A corpse lays before a furious Prydaen man, its form shifting so rapidly that it's impossible for you to make out any details save for a heavy, hooded cloak. As if ash, pieces of the body's flesh flake away until all that is left is a sooty cloud. Carried upon a fierce wind, the ashen mass first swirls over water teeming with fish, then continues to pass by a crystalline sculpture before settling to reform in the shadow of a great mountain.
A flock of birds bursts forth in flight to obscure your vision, and just as you begin to note the variety of colorful plumage, you see each of the creatures crushed by an invisible force!  You duck your head to avoid their twisted bodies as they fall, and when you look back up, find yourself reoriented to your surroundings, the jumbled images all but a fragile memory.

Reality seems to shudder and strain under an enormous weight as your vision goes white.  Against the pale backdrop you see the silhouette of an Elf, walking along a path of black tar sprinkled with ivory.  The Elf stops and performs an elaborate gesture, causing the path around him to change.  Tendrils of blue energy, half-cloud and half-lightning, first snake along then envelope the path in both directions.  In a final display the now bright path folds in upon itself, the line becoming a circle.

Your vision darkens briefly as the silhouette of a great crystal tower rises before you.  The three moons slowly orbit around its apex where a faint light begins to pulsate at the heart of the top story.  With each steady pulse, the illumination grows more intense until the entire structure is overwhelmed by an explosion of light that forces you to turn away.  Before you can fully recover your senses, the world snaps back to reality.

Your vision darkens and blurs, resolving once again into an urban scene.  A woman, cloaked in tan and crimson robes, approaches a well-to-do man from behind.  The robed woman surges forward and locks the man in a neck hold!  The steel of her jagged knife glints with unnatural light as she holds it above the man's struggling chest.  Just before the knife violently falls, the woman whispers into the man's ear, "Your hands... so strong, so flexible.  Perfect.  I must have them."

A faint smell of smoke tugs at your senses.  As you focus on it, a murky haze settles upon your vision.  A strong voice that commands attention calls into the miasma, "Set the smiths to work at once.  Arm and armor us, and instruct all to seek their favors for battle.  We will not wait for them to come to our doorstep."  Blinking through the increasingly thick haze, your vision suddenly returns to normal, and the smell of smoke is gone.

You pause and turn at the sound of stone rolling across stone.  A murky haze settles, accompanied by a weak smell of smoke.  Great mounds of crumbled stone and metalwork loom before you, and a fire blazes high into the sky from some other place apart from the rocky debris.  Uniformed figures, each bearing a plain steel-hilted broadsword at their side, march steadily towards you.  As quickly as it came, the vision is gone, but the sound of marching feet echoes quietly in the memory.

A murky haze descends over your vision.  It grows thicker, and a noxious stench of smoke overwhelms you.  The clash of steel on steel rings out all around, and cries of battle from man and beast alike echo ominously in the chaos.  A distinctly unpleasant voice whispers behind you, "You will not stand in our way."  Your vision flashes with searing pain as something sharp pierces your back!  With a gasp, the vision vanishes and your surroundings return.

A vast view from a high cliff overlooking a small community built upon a beach flows up before you. A dark-skinned Human woman stands at the top as a bald, amber-eyed Gnome approaches.
"What news is there, Witch?"
"The consciousness is nearly complete.  I've begun communications.  It is primative."
"They didn't ask for anything complex.  I won't expend the time, materials or funds to develop something more than what was asked and paid for."
The Gnome mutters. "Not my concern. We'll need to position it in a secure location so that it can observe the comings and goings. Have you found such a place?"
"Allow me a few days to notify the Council. Unless you hear from me again, move it into place and activate it."
"Of course. I can move it when you're ready."
"Are we going to tell the Estate Holders? It might come as a shock for them to suddenly hear its thoughts."
"Again, not my concern.  If the Council wishes to explain it, they can do so.  It poses no threat, merely to observe and report.  Unless that changes, our role was to construct and activate it.  We have done so.  Our part is done."
The Witch flashes a mischievous grin. "So grumpy! It is an interesting experiment. I wonder what sort of future projects it could lead to."
"Very well." The Gnome turns and departs, leaving the Witch alone once again. She turns and gazes down at the locals going about their daily business, each oblivious to the changes ahead. "Such a small thing, but the potential for so much more. Where will it lead?"
She pulls a milky stone from a ring on her finger and gazes intently at it. "And you shall record this moment for everyone..."

A red haze clouds your vision, warping and distorting the world around you.  As it begins to clear somewhat, you feel overcome with a sense of indignant rage that is not your own, and yet guides your every motion, pushing you ever forward.
Far now from your home waters, still you go on.  You will not stop, you CAN not stop -- not until every last one of them trembles in His name!

{{Visions|date=9/16/2013|vision=Stark white mists spin tightly in front of you, soon resolving into the silhouette of a large, walled house atop a grassy hill.  Scores of colorfully banded serpents slither toward its open gate, chased by cartwheeling shadows at the periphery of your vision.
Dread approaches from behind, but you cannot bring yourself to look over your shoulder, and so you simply shut your eyes, disentangling yourself from the scene.

The remainder resist.  For a time.  Until the top of another tower implodes, leaving naught but a ragged stump behind.

A second vision of the S'Kra Mur assaults your mind. He stands before the obelisk, a hand pressed to its surface, as the shadowy image of a shrew grows beneath the surface.

To the north, a massive, smoking crater snapped into existence, then just as abruptly disappearred.  The crater continued to stutter in and out of reality, each appearance a hammer-blow to my mind.

A massive shadow looms against a rough sandstone wall, the figure that cast it shrouded in darkness.  The hooded and cloaked being reaches out, its hand small and delicate, straining toward a ball of flickering fire.
Light blossoms abruptly.  The figure staggers into full view, wreathed in light and flame.  The being is small and forlorn now, beating futilely at its burning vestments.  No sound reaches you as the figure convulses in agony.  The reek of burning hair and flesh is thick upon the air.
The light grows brighter and brighter, erasing the scene in a blaze of brilliance with a wave of force that rattles your teeth in your skull and sends your senses reeling.

Devoid of hesitation, you draw your lancet deeply across the upper arm.  Instead of blood, what looks like multicolored ink spills out in distinct ribbons -- white, yellow, blue, green and others.  Only once they are out of the body do they begin to mingle, congealing together into a revulsive muck that sticks to your hands.

Underneath a blanket of stars, a Gor'Tog and Elf share a conversation from the doorway of a whitewashed inn. You push the boy further behind you, a vain effort to protect him from the ghastly sight of the putrefied, venom-riddled corpse marring the otherwise tranquil scene. Only a handful of words escape their tete-a-tete to reach your ears.
The red-haired Elf pauses a moment before flicking her head toward the slain Elpalzi. The Gor'Tog approaches the corpse and unfolds a tarpaulin. Feebly, the boy whimpers, and the woman's eyes instantly settle on you with a fierce gaze.

The Human, his face in his hands, asks, "Why?"
The creature responds, "You inherited a debt.  Your kind claimed the majesty of the heavens as their own.  It is not without price.  It is not without obligation.  Yet even that... even those who know they are called, fall victim to your hands."
"You are the children of foolish, but prideful men.  When did you start needing gods to come tell you good from evil?    Celestial or cthonic freedom or fate.  You wield your ambivalence as a shield.  You were called, and you have not answered."|sub= |rep=True}}

{{visions|date=11/13/2011|vision= Right in front of you is a sumptuous slice of pecan pie with butterscotch topping.  As the vision zooms out, you see that it is being held at arm's length by a thin, venerable Human man.  He eyes the dessert with a mix of surprise, longing and extreme suspicion.  Finally steeling his resolve, he throws away the pie and walks onward, out of your sight. |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= Bright light shines down from above, uncomfortably warm, though a gentle sea spray brushes over your burned skin. In spite of the pain that surges with even the slightest of movements, the beach scene around you is peaceful. Grasses sway in the breeze, the smells of cooking foods are strong and sounds of people happily talking to one another are easily heard. Shattering the serenity, a frantic voice shouts out from an unseen speaker, "You're back! Quidan! Lavieska! Council! Ali..." The vision abruptly ends. |sub=Quidan, Fang Cove,  |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= Blinding brightness overwhelms your senses, and your badly burned skin aches as a salty spray splashes over you. As you adjust to the painfully intense light, a gaunt Gnome with a lengthy beard comes into focus. A table covered in colorful shells sits behind him, while tall grasses and a clay bank obstruct the view beyond. Indistinct muttering draws your attention back to the figure. With a short stick, he scratches complex figures into the sand, studies them, then curses and wipes his work away. The call of a gull overheard heralds the vision's immediate end. |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= A high-pitched buzz like that of a pesky gnat sounds near your ear and ever so slowly rotates around your head. As you focus on it, your surroundings dim until only a confined area immediately before you isn't concealed in a black void. A gaunt Gnome with a lengthy beard seems to be staring intently at you, shouting something you can't quite make out. Though you turn about to see if he may be speaking to someone else, there's no one there. A single word finally pierces your vision-induced haze, startling you and drawing your attention back to the Gnome as the vision fades: "ALIVE!" |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= The world around you falls away, leaving you hovering, weightlessly in blindingly bright void. Sounds begin to pierce the veil, slowly and quietly at first -- a gull calling, waves upon a shore, the crackle of a flame, the thunks of knives cutting swiftly. The light dims at last, leaving you standing at a window looking out on crude, wooden dock while the work of a kitchen takes place behind you. A cry of alarm outside grabs your attention and heralds the vision's end. |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= Bright light momentarily blinds you. The sounds of a beach overlap those of a small community working their daily routines -- hammers banging, bellows being pumped, a few young kids playing with one another. A burly, green-eyed Gor'Tog standing outside a crude structure is the first thing you see as your sight slowly returns. Severe scars mar both of his arms. A young man runs up to him and says something that you can't hear from this distance. The Gor'Tog's eyes go wide as he vanishes inside for only a moment before dashing out and away carrying an armful of furs. You feel a tap on your shoulder, but when you turn, the vision ends and your surroundings return. |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= Deep darkness descends, cloaking your surroundings in ominous shadows. An unseen voice speaks into the stillness before you, "It's time. Give the order." A second voice speaks nervously from behind, "As you wish, sir." A brief moment of whispering fabric as they move away follows before the latter voice is heard again. "Er, sir? Won't someone notice them being..." A brief, nearly silent scuffle ends with a soft bump as a body falls to the ground. |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= Darkness descends, cloaking your surroundings in ominous shadows. "You will not question my instructions. Your role is not that of inquisitor. Your role is to deliver my messages to those who need them. Do you understand?" A secondary voice quickly answers, "Aye." An uncomfortable silence stretches for what seems an eternity before the first speaks again with a chuckle, "Well done." |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= Deep darkness descends, cloaking your surroundings in ominous shadows. A lamp pierces the darkness, revealing a young, but otherwise nondescript face. A whip cracks as a beast-drawn wagon trundles noisily across a bridge stretching overhead. The figure nods and immediately banging rings out into the cloaked night, drawing your attention away. Metal being torn apart shrieks out into the night. As quickly as it began, the torturous sounds stop. Turning back, you realize the youth has vanished, though the light of a lamp that wasn't there before shines down from a bloodwood building above. |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= Darkness descends, cloaking your surroundings in ominous shadows. As you try to get your bearings, the location shifts, and you find yourself looking down at a table before a roaring fireplace. Four figures sit across from one another, and pipe smoke hangs heavy in the air. One says, "He did well. They left nothing behind. The reports I've seen question the vandalism, but nothing more. I assigned our man to guard things. He'll make a little something on the side while maintaining nothing's afoul." |sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/06/2011|vision= The lingering echo of a past vision nags at the edges of your senses. The more you try to bring it into focus, the more fleeting the memory is. A single, whispered word finds its way into your thoughts: "unnatural."|sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=Originally appeared 08/04/2011, disappeared 01/07/2012, reappeared 09/15/2012|vision= A severe hissing sound fills your thoughts as your mind is gripped by a vision.
You realize that you can sense the life essences of everything around you, centered on a large, ruddy seed that you grasp firmly in your left hand. The lush greens of a forest swim before your eyes, but your mind reels with the overwhelming feeling of struggle, as everything around you fights to live and thrive. The sensation grows and grows, your nerves singing with the agony of life. As you feel yourself slipping toward unconsciousness, an older Human with a scarred face steps toward you and takes your arm.
The Human says, "Khalo..."
The hissing sound fades along with the vision. |sub=Shock_Quest |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=08/04/2011|vision= A leader-clad male Dwarf stands before a Human woman with long black hair and pale skin criss-crossed with scars. She gazes at him coldly, only her violet eyes and her combative, poised stance betraying her fury. The Dwarf makes a sweeping gesture with his arm, bringing it up towards the sky and down towards the ground. With a slurping sound, a massive torrent of red and green goo rains from above! The Human, unaffected, steps closer to the Dwarf, ensnaring him with her gaze. The Dwarf falls to his knees, a look of total bewilderment gripping his features as the vision fades. |sub=Annael |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=02/10/2011|vision= Darkness surrounds you, followed swiftly by the sound of some large, hollow material clattering together.  A sticky substance begins to drip over your body, noxious fumes filling your nose and mouth.  The suffocating sensation sends you into a momentary panic and you reach out to get a sense of your surroundings.  Your hands meet thick vertical posts almost immediately, calling the mental image of a cage to mind.  Trapped in the cramped cell, you only vaguely hear a laughing voice shouting somewhere in the distance, "Yes!  An army of behemoths at my command!  Let the white walls tremble at my approach!"  You feel certain you are going to pass out, choked by the horrendous, thick mucus, when all at once the world around you returns, the chilling sounds and sensations disappearing.
|sub=Lhars |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=02/07/2011|vision= Suddenly your vision turns black and you can feel that you are standing in water up to your knees.  Reaching out, you feel wet, moss-covered stones.  As you look up, you can barely see the night sky through what seems like a small pinhole.  You feel panic starting to creep up your spine as you realize you are at the bottom of a deep well.  You begin to scream when suddenly you are back where you started, hoping that no one heard you.

{{visions|date=01/07/2011|vision= You see a soldier encased from head to toe in polished plate armor.  He stands over a black-robed form that lies obscured in the mud, while fresh blood drips off his brandished sword.
An elderly farmer calls out from the side, "What was his name?"
The soldier replies, "Why does it matter?"
"Well, if you don't know his name, what are you going to put on his tombstone?"
"Tombstone?  Who are you?"
The Old Man dismisses the question with a brushing gesture, "I fancy myself an expert on the creation and destruction of monsters."
The soldier takes a step forward, his shining boot planted firmly among the mud and gore, "Why are you here, then?"
The Old Man stares morosely at the soldier and says, "I reckon at least one of those just happened."

{{visions|date=02/07/2011|vision= Your vision momentarily blurs.  As it clears, you find yourself bathed in a brilliant blue light.  A sense of joy fills your being... at first.  Slowly and painfully you start to disintigrate, each tiny bit of what was once you floating high up into the light.  Just when you think the pain couldn't possibly get worse the vision ends, leaving you whole and slightly dazed.
|sub= Xibar topaz|rep=False}}
{{visions|date=12/30/2010|vision= Low chanting fills your ears.  Looking around you find yourself inexplicably sitting at an oval-shaped table with a dozen or so hooded monks, all reciting the same phrase.  The words seem strange, and as you attempt to focus on them you feel your sanity slowly slipping away.  Erupting into a fit of maniacal laugher, you abruptly awaken from the strange dream, feeling somehow changed.
|sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/30/2010|vision= Dark skies roll in overhead, followed by inky waves of a sea surrounding you.  Aboard a violently swaying ship, you find yourself at the center of a great, oceanic maelstrom.  Back and forth the deck tilts, the angle growing more and more severe with each great wave.  Suddenly a loud *CRACK* pierces through the din, and you look up to see the mast snapped, falling directly toward you.  Just before you are crushed, you notice a stout, bearded fellow leaping into the waves, cutlass in hand.  The vision fades.
|sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/30/2010|vision= You find yourself at a fisherman's wharf, screams and pandemonium breaking out among a throng, with people running in all directions and pushing and shoving through the crowd.  A moment later, a massive suckered tentacle rears up from beyond and comes crashing down, sweeping dozens of victims into the churning waters of the harbor.  Ship's masts rock to and fro as more of the huge, flailing tendrils wend their way up on shore, wrapping around some and crushing others.  The horrible image fades in a blink, leaving behind only a disturbing memory.
|sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/30/2010|vision= Darkness envelops you briefly, and as your vision clears you see a beautiful woman with angelic features, head covered with a shadowy hood, stalking behind a large drunken man walking in the shadows.  Suddenly, she draws a knife and begins to quietly move closer to the man.  Before you can protest, she has stabbed the man multiple times in the back.  She searches his dead body, finds what appears to be a deed of some sort.  After pocketing the object, she drags the corpse into an alley just as your vision returns to normal.
|sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/30/2010|vision= A faint drone fills your ears and your sight blurs.  With a sudden snap, your vision flashes to a well-traveled road.  A young lass dressed in finery is accompanied by a small entourage traveling at a relaxed pace.  Suddenly, a loud *THWACK* rings out as a piercing arrow hits its mark.  A bloody red haze encircles the vision as chaos ensues, the lass falling into a crumbled heap.  Deafening screams echo across the road and the image of a lion flashes before you, just as your mind's eye snaps shut, leaving you breathless.
|sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/30/2010|vision= Bands of wavering color wash over your vision, fading into a vibrant forest scene.  A female archer with blonde hair and green eyes steps from the foliage, her Human features complimented by pointed ears.  She holds one hand up to silence you, and then points to the south.  You follow her fingertip toward the distance, hearing her say, "He is coming."  Before your eyes can focus on where she is indicating, the vision fades.
|sub= Lirisa |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/30/2010|vision= You see a man without eyes, crossing the desert.  He walks with a staff in hand, face turned always towards the sun, bare feet shuffling through the sand.  Coming to a valley with a three-spired ridge along the edge, red rocks jutting toward the sky, he stops and raises his staff into the air.  "Come forth, my minions!"  After a moment, the sand of the valley begins to rumble and shift, but the vision is already fading.

{{visions|date=12/29/2010|vision= As your vision twists you see a tattered old man surrounded by a pile of bones that appear to be Human and Elven.  The man searches aimlessly through the bones until he finds the one he is looking for.  He grins, and as he does, you can see bits of flesh hanging from his teeth.  Setting the bone to the side he says to himself, "That will be for later!"  Your vision returns to normal, but the image of that man will always remain.
|sub= |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/29/2010|vision= Stern features spring to life in front of you, a dark-skinned Human with short black hair dominating your field of vision.  His displeased gaze turns to an enraged snarl and he shouts, "No!  For the last time, no!  Good gods, you are entirely useless!"  Without warning you find yourself upside-down and sailing out through the nearby window.  Thankfully, the vision fades before you crash to the ground.
|sub= Kssarh|rep=True}}
{{visions|date=12/29/2010|vision= A starry sky races past you suddenly, familiar constellations sliding away to be replaced by more and stranger formations.  Clouds form in the blackness between, bubbling outward from the inky darkness into smoky tendrils that flail and grasp, seemingly toward you.  One by one they absorb the points of light, clearing the sky of stars.  Relief washes over you as the vision abruptly ends.

{{visions|date=10/16/2010|vision= Your vision blurs.  As it comes back to focus, you have a bird's eye view of a massive keep.  Workers mill about the area chopping trees, shaping stone, and laying a cobble road.  Seated within the center of the clearing is a lone albino blood wolf, his gaze carefully surveying the nearly completed work.  As he turns his muzzle upward toward you the vision abruptly ends.
|sub=Ulf'Hara Keep, Vorclaf |rep=True}}
{{visions|date=10/16/2010|vision= A barely perceptible shadowy aura clings to your skin, energizing you with a sense of safety and well-being.  It does not last long, however, as an unwelcome searing light rends apart your aura.  The loss stabs your heart with daggers of dull, numbing pain.
{{visions|date=10/16/2010|vision= You find yourself buried vertically in some sort of thick mud, your limbs immobile and your eyelids heavy with exhaustion.  A twilight-hued frog leaps in front of your face and fixes you with a bug-eyed, whimsical stare.  The vision ripples away from your mind.
{{visions|date=10/16/2010|vision= You see a cyan snake that is slithering across a floor of irregularly interlocked black and white tiles.  It pauses briefly, then multiplies into three snakes that look identical to their parent.  Your viewpoint elevates as the new snakes move on in different paths that oddly follow the tile patterns, each one trifurcating again.  The scene blurs away before you can discern the overarching mosaic that was beginning to show.
{{visions|date=10/15/2010|vision= The threads of fate billow into an expansive fog in which the only visible thing is the silhouette of a man seated on an elaborately sculpted platinum chair.  Your mind's eye is so distant from him, however, that you cannot make out his shadowed face.  From the flashy bolero he is humming, he seems happy in spite of the dreary surroundings.
{{visions|date=10/14/2010|vision= You find yourself staring at your reflection in a mirror, which slowly darkens into a pitch-black ersatz.  Noticing there is no mirror anymore, you reach out with a hesitant hand to touch the creature.  The coldness of its skin makes you jerk your hand back and ends the vision.

{{visions|date=09/23/2010|vision= Your vision comes to rest on a merchant spreading his wares gloomwood table.  In the middle of the table you see a pedestal of bluefire velvet.  Fine metallic threads used in the warp of the fabric catch the light, causing an illusion resembling blue lightning crackling across its surface.  Rare gems rest on the surface of the velvet including haze sapphires, night diamonds, and cloud rubies.  Surrounding the pedestal are bolts of Elven snowlace, duchess satin, lava samite, and starlight velvet.  The merchant shifts a bolt of fabric, allowing you to catch a glimpse of bolts of mana engraved into the surface of the table. Your vision returns to normal.

{{visions|date=09/23/2010|vision= Your vision attempts to focus on an endless void, but soon your head aches as your eyes fail to find a point to rest upon.  You become aware of a rhythmic pulsing somewhere in the shifting nothingness, eventually settling to a steady drip, drip, drip.  A small point appears, then another and another.  Your vision returns to normal before any of the spots gets close enough for you to recognize its shape or form.
{{visions|date=09/23/2010|vision= The world spins around you, finally settling on a priestess raising her arms at an altar.  Clad in an oceanmist satin robe embroidered with bolts of mana, she holds a dusk rose in one hand and a chalice made of haralum in the other.  A small smile appears on her lips as your vision returns to normal.

{{visions|date=09/06/2010|vision= Your vision flashes black without warning.  Darkness surrounds you.  As you draw an uneasy breath, mud and water flow quickly into your mouth and nose, clogging your airways.  You blink rapidly as you attempt to pull yourself to fresh air and continued life.  You feel the unbearable weight on your chest move toward your neck, like hands wrapping themselves around you in a tight embrace.  Just as you start to lose all hope your vision snaps back to normal.
{{visions|date=09/05/2010|vision= You hear steel clashing against steel!  Turning around, you see two figures: both the size and build of a Human male and both clad head to toe in identical, bare steel plate.  Each fights with an identical bastard sword and wards their opponent away with identical shields which bear no crests.
Unsurprisingly, the fighters are evenly matched.  What few blows are not parried or batted away fail to penetrate their armor.  Only as the fight goes on do you notice a distinction between the two: one radiates a sense of... wrongness, a detectable repugnance that can only be described in terms of spiritual or moral worth.
{{visions|date=09/05/2010|vision= Your vision sharply blurs, leaving indistinct whorls of color in front of you.  When you recover, two animals stand in front of you.  One is a prime example of a lion, while standing near its front paws is a tensed mongoose.  Moments pass, and then...
...nothing happens.  There is no intuitive meaning; no sense of power or destiny.  The two animals stare at you, and you could almost fancy they are disappointed.  The lion turns its back to you and walks away, the mongoose scampering after him.

{{visions|date=Between 8/31/2010 and 09/05/2010|vision= As your vision clears you find yourself in a large theater. A stage magician, clad in a dark robe adorned with lightning bolts of mana,  holds the crowd's rapt attention.  The magician summons you to the stage  and places a dove in your outstretched hand, then covers the bird with an iridescent cloth.  Suddenly the illusionist produces a knife and slashes at the cloth which explodes in a flash of light.  The crowd gasps in amazement as the bird and one of your fingers have vanished.  The magician raises his hands high above his head, basking in the cheers of the crowd as you make your way back to your seat.  The audience is still cheering as your vision returns to normal. 
{{visions|date=08/31/2010|vision= Your vision blurs.  As it comes back to focus, you have a bird's eye view of the foundation of a massive keep.  Workers mill about the area chopping trees, shaping stone, and laying a cobble road.  Seated within the center of the clearing is a lone albino blood wolf, his gaze carefully surveying the work in progress.  As he turns his muzzle upward toward you the vision abruptly ends.

{{visions|date=08/31/2010|vision= You see an elderly Human farmer, hoe in hand, working in a garden.  A pillar of fire and sunlight erupts some feet behind him, a screaming flame that somehow that does not consume the vegetation beneath it.  The sunlight brightens and dims rhythmicly, while the crackle of the flame transforms into a polyphonic voice.
"They need to die."
The Old Man replies nonchalantly, "Everybody dies."
While it has no body language to speak of, you intuit that the flame is not amused.  An awkward silence holds until the Old Man speaks again, "Can you do anything about the demon?"
"Then you have a very serious problem.  Good luck with that."  With that, the Old Man returns his attention to his vegetables.

{{visions|date=08/20/2010|vision= You grow lightheaded, feeling almost giddy.  The world around you becomes gradually more blurry, images and forms trailing behind their actual location as you turn to inspect them.  Somewhere beneath the euphoric sensation you are aware of a power surging through you, giving you pause for a moment as you inspect yourself.  Your body, rippling with musculature you previously did not possess, inspires you to utilize this amazing strength.  Head rising to survey your surroundings once more, it becomes immediately apparent to you what must be done.  Your knuckles tighten and a grim smile crosses your face as the vision fades.
{{visions|date=08/14/2010|vision= The world changes in a rush of color and sound, your body swiftly replaced by a muscular form rippling with excess energy.  Cackling maniacally you charge forward through a landscape that was not there moments before, sending waves of cracking, dark purple energy after fleeing silhouettes -- hapless fools too slow to escape your might.  A sharp sensation of agony lances through your body, returning you painfully to your senses.  Looking down you see a barbed metal spade jutting out of your chest and feel your body fall forward, the intoxicated sensation drifting away.  A sound of galloping hooves rushes past you before the vision fades.
{{visions|date=08/13/2010|vision= Raucous laughter rings in your ears, a middle-aged human woman coalescing in your vision.  She slaps at her knee, then takes a mighty swig from a tarnished silver belt flask.  The woman leans close to a slight figure, offering the flask.  The figure raises a bloody hand and shakes its head, declining.  The human woman looks disappointed, then takes another gulp, the reek of cheap liquor permeating the area.  As the figure lowers its hand, you notice a plain silver ring bearing the crest of the Empaths' guild adorning the smallest finger.  The human woman corks her flask, determination glinting in her eyes, and the vision goes black.
{{visions|date=08/01/2010|vision=  As your vision twists you see an ancient shaman seated in what appears to be a sandstone cave, its walls glittering with embedded gems.  Around him is scattered the detritus of failed experiments.  In one hand he holds a pale runestone as he uses a broken arrow to dig a gem from the wall of the cave.  You notice a small leather pack at his feet as something within it begins to stir.  The shaman nudges the pack gently with his foot and says "Quiet my friend.  Soon you shall feast, and all will tremble at the precision of our terrible magic.  As your vision returns to normal you hear the shaman chortling softly.
{{visions|date=08/01/2010|vision=  A young girl, slight and frail, with wispy hair, stands in front of a small cottage.  A bird lands on her finger and whistles inquiringly at her.  She responds with another whistle, and the bird nods its head and flies away.  The girl cocks her head oddly and turns to look at you, and the vision fades.
{{visions|date=05/31/2010|vision=Your vision blurs, obscured by blades of tall grass, and you realize that you are pressed flat on the ground, hiding in the weeds.  You turn your head and see billows of dust rising from a dirt road.  Through the grey haze, you see a seemingly endless parade of combat boots and wagon wheels.  A pebble is kicked at your head, and your involuntary flinch causes the nearest pair of boots to stop.  As they turn toward your hiding place, your vision fades.
{{visions|date=05/22/2010|vision=You stand at the edge of a forest, watching a boy in a clearing drop rocks into a pond.  He seems to see something and leans closer to the water.  With lightning speed, a pair of scaly arms reaches up to grab him around the neck, pulling him in.  As the ripples subside on the pond, the vision fades.
{{visions|date=05/22/2010|vision=Your vision wavers, and you see the silhouette of a tall figure with bowed head and shackled hands, standing before a magistrate.  Someone leans over and whispers into the magistrate's ear, slipping him a jingling pouch.  The magistrate smiles thinly and gestures for the shackled man to be taken away.  The man's shackles break and he begins uttering a terrible incantation.  As the air crackles with gathering mana, your vision fades.
{{visions|date=05/14/2010|vision=A Dwarven miner stands in a cavern beside a pile of tools and spent torches.  As he raises his sputtering lantern high, the glitter of precious jewels sparkles from the walls.  At that moment, the lantern goes out, plunging the cavern into total darkness.  The vision fades.

{{visions|date=04/27/2010|vision=Colors and shapes dance in the fringes of your vision, constantly evading your focus.  Your prophetic connection feels unusually languid as the images sputter in and out of existence.  Gradually a single image comes to dominate your senses -- a gleaming white tower under assault by the elusive imagery.
{{visions|date=04/27/2010|vision=You suddenly find yourself standing in a vast wheat field, a sharpened scythe in your hand.  As you swing the blade through a tall growth of ready-to-harvest stalks a large squad of ogres stomps into the area.  They ignore you as they begin harvesting the same field you're working, stuffing the grain haphazardly into teh sacks tied to their waists.  Just as you turn to run one of them takes notice and begins lumbering in your direction...

{{visions|date=04/27/2010|vision=Your foresight paints the world with the color of a tropical blue sea, alit with glorious sunlight refracting from the surface.  A small white jellyfish sways gracefully in the waters, perhaps a mysterious dance to the songs of Eluned.  Your vision changes angle, and you see that the cute jellyfish is gliding closely over the deck of a shipwreck.  It approaches a humanoid body, bloated by now, and swiftly disappears into its mouth with a watery slurp.  As the corpse begins to squirm, the sea scene flakes all around you.

{{visions|date=04/20/2010|vision=You find yourself standing on the edge of a bottomless pit, dressed in a flowing white robe.  Your hands are bound behind your back with a silken rope, and the muted cheers from a crowd screaming for sacrifice make it nearly impossible to think.  Strangely, you find this perfectly natural and right -- It is your fate, your destiny, your desire to become a small part of something so much larger than yourself.  The cheers of the crowd are at a near fervor, and a surreal sense of peace comes over you, quieting your heart.  You take the step forward, willingly leaping from the precipice and plunging toward your final death.
{{visions|date=04/19/2010|vision=You find yourself sitting at the base of a hill made entirely of shattered glass.  Picking up one of the pieces, you see that a faded script is etched on it in Gamgweth, though the words are far too faded to make out.  The pieces range from miniscule to about the size of a handspan, each one with writing in a different language.  Looking around, you see that more giant heaps of glass stretch all the way to the horizon, which ends in complete darkness.  The night sky above is covered with stormclouds, and a bolt of lightning streaks down to hit one of the disarrayed piles and washing the vision away from your sight.
{{visions|date=04/19/2010|vision=You see a pack of tawny brown coyotes racing across the desert in pursuit of some hapless Human.  Tongues lolling out of their mouths, they catch up to the man with a wild celerity that alarms your subconscious.  A sudden dust devil erodes the vision away from you.
{{visions|date=04/09/2010|vision=The world is deconstructed into grey, tan and brown particles as your mind is drawn along a multi-stranded cord of fate.
You crouch in the shadows behind a group of dark-skinned, withered Elves who are in counsel with a vaporous apparition of white and yellow.  Though some have the hint of defiant pride in their eyes, they all maintain a respectful bearing toward her.
Tapping her chin with a finger, a particularly vexed-looking crone says, "He is too young."  The elderly man next to her nods thoughtfully.
The spirit smiles.  "We have had younger."
"So be it."
The ghostly woman raises a single hand placidly, making a benevolent gesture.  Her form begins to fade, dematerializing until nothing but a faint mist is left, the scent of fresh herbs rising to meet your nostrils.
{{visions|date=04/08/2010|vision=Exuding an air of authority and displeasure, a stern Dwarven woman with tightly pulled-up hair stares down at a bowl of gruel.  She then launches into a thorough tongue-lashing which you hardly understand, but someone else mumbles, "Y-yes, Mistress."  White-robed novices scurry behind her as the Dwarf storms out.
{{visions|date=04/01/2010|vision=You find yourself in a spherical prison of glass, alight with such a powerful white glow that it is impossible to glimpse the outside.  The light, for all its benign glamor, is annulling the very air you breathe.  You fall to your knees in suffocation, but there is no reprieve or mercy.  As you rest your dying hands on the warm glass wall, it blackens like the onrushing thunderclouds of a storm and explodes into a cloud of noxious-smelling dust!
{{visions|date=03/28/2010|vision=Prophecy grips your mind, filling it with a stormy scene.  Rain pounds the ground around you as a second glow appears directly overhead.  The glow builds in intensity, a hellish inferno surpassing even the sun as it plummets towards the horizon.  With the impact, the sky goes red and the foretelling releases your senses before the shockwave reaches you.
Reality suddenly ripples.  As it stills, you find yourself standing on the deck of a ship.  The crew hurries at their tasks, oblivious to your presence.  Your gaze is drawn towards the horizon where a small fleet of ships sails in formation with your own.  Though shark fins swim escort to each of the ships, their crews seem unaware of their presence.  The world flickers red as the vision fades.
Something seems wrong with the world, though long moments pass before you are able to place it - reality has taken on a slightly red tinge.  As comprehension fills you, the red quickly deepens casting everything in bloody hues.  The world explodes around you in a flash of white light.  Sight slowly returns, the unnatural hues banished, but a sensation of foreboding remains nestled in your mind.
Lighting strikes at you, hundreds of bolts slamming into the ground at once.  Debris fills the air as you are tossed like a rag doll, ozone and smoke filling your nostrils.  Crumpled and in a daze, you blink rapidly trying to restore vision to your abused eyes.  Searing echoes of the lighting strikes slowly fade, only to be replaced by thick blood oozing down your face.  Try as you might to clear your eyes, only the blood-red remains.  Without warning another bolt strikes at you, shattering the trance-like vision.
You are stunned!
You collapse from the intensity of the vision!
The world around you vanishes as you find yourself under inky waters.  You savor the air in your lungs as you are caught up in the angry waves and hammered against unseen debris.  Sweet breath is crushed from your body, though you managed to escape any broken bones.  Its as if Drogor himself has seen fit to punish you for venturing into his waters.  The vision is ripped from your mind as the waves close in once more.
Pain builds in your chest and your connection to Fate shudders.  Disoriented, you find yourself again tumbling breathless in salty waters.  Resisting the urge to surrender, you manage to draw in a half breath as the current pulls you under once more.  Hands and feet grow heavy, weighing you down more than helping you fight.  Every beat of your heart pounds against your skin, a sharp contrast to the spreading numbness in your limbs.  A lingering sense of mortality perches in the back of your mind as the world returns to normal.
Your life lingers onward, unwilling to extinguish itself, but no longer able to stand the pain.  It seems the suffering can continue no longer, yet does.  When Aldauth’s cruel hand finally snuffs out your life, the foretelling ends with it, and you are thankful.
You are stunned!
You collapse from the intensity of the vision!
Sea spray splashes over you as the image of a tanned Kaldar with tight red dreadlocks fills your mind.  His muscular build is evident beneath his white silk shirt and grey breeches.  Your sight doubles and blurs as future and present juxtapose - muscle melts from him, his features turn gaunt, and his clothing is torn to rags.  A haunted, but determined, look fills his dark eyes as a distant cry rips the vision from your mind.
Your eyes water, tears forming without apparent cause or motivation.  Blinking to clear them away, you find yourself looking up through sea water towards the shining sun.  Oddly, you have no trouble breathing and find yourself at peace until the first bloated body drifts into view.  Countless more follow, their lifeless eyes gazing towards you, empty.  Black and bloated, they blot out the sun, the vision passing with the final ray of light.
You are stunned!

{{visions|date=01/05/2010|vision= Glare spots appear in your eyes, accompanying the sense that something is in motion in the heavens.
Another flash of light partially blinds you, leaving your sight changed in its wake. A translucent obelisk stands before you, easily over a hundred feet tall. Four huge jewels adorn its square, tapered crown: a ruby, a sapphire, a topaz and a pearl. Light seems to twist and churn rapidly beneath its surface, triggering within the vision a profound sense of malice. Then the screaming starts.
Bolts of surreal, silver fire shoot upward from the obelisk's four gems and arc back down, falling from the heavens like rain. Each bolt explodes upon contact, carving blasted holes in the otherwise smooth, grey plain; smooth, grey and occupied. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of figures are running for their lives, appearing as little more than indistinct silhouettes against the bright bombardment.
The only figure you can focus on amidst the bright explosions and flying debris is a Human man with pale skin, red hair and a slender frame. Seemingly unhindered by the chaos at his feet, he bares his teeth in rage and walks toward the monstrous obelisk. Your vision is engulfed in white when an explosion cuts into the ground between your point of view and the Human, severing the vision.

This list includes visions from the Moon mage event prediction ability.

Also included are spontaneous visions experienced without the use of the PREDICT command. These latter visions can be experienced by any moon mage as long as they're logged into the game environment when the vision is distributed. Generally these visions signal incipient invasions or immediate developments in an ongoing event or storyline.

Moon mage visions stem directly from their prophetic link to the Plane of Probability and connection to Fate.

Revisiting previous portents can at times yield insight into the meaning of new prophesies.
