Date Unknown, Inside The Tain
I do not understand what has happened. Falling back before two
myrmidons in Forest Heart, I was enveloped by a greenish haze
which tore me from the earth. Now I find myself here, in a vast
underground cavern with many of my comrades. We have been unable
to find any way to the surface.
Murgen believes us to be trapped inside the Tain, a relic forged
by the Smiths of Muirthemne during the Wind Age. Soon after its
construction, the Tain was taken from Muirthemne by raiding barbarians
from the south, and believed to be lost forever.
But they say that the darkest artifacts have the ability to bend
men to their will. Calling soundlessly to the wicked and discontent
from thousands of miles away or hundreds of feet beneath the earth
or sea, and that in this way they always come to light again,
no matter how buried or forgotten.
So it was that Soulblighter rediscovered the Tain.
The artifact was used only once before it disappeared, by Connacht,
against the terrible race of the Myrkridia. Until now, Murgen
said, no man except its creators knew where its victims were taken.
I'll try to feel privileged while I starve to death.
I have nothing more to write.
