Inscriptions

INSCRIPTION

The hungriest of the unborn burns with desire.
He hangs seething as those below bow low in supplication.
He demands sacrifice, but his hunger, it ne'er ends.

Location: ??

 

INSCRIPTION

Those within the obsidian walls seek oblivion.
Their worship, turbulent and reactive.
They predict the birth of their savior, but they say he has already been born.

INSCRIPTION

She rests within a tomb, the most vulnerable of the unborn.
His protection is all he has left to offer.
A loyal husk, he prays for her birth, refusing to rest no matter how tiresome his watch.

Location: ??

 

INSCRIPTION

The old prisoner sits contentedly atop his perch. Awaiting the newest.
The unborn must be greeted with gifts, but gifts they will bestow.
In return for unwavering loyalty.

Location: ??

INSCRIPTION

The First Martyr gave neither blood nor body.
No, he gave up so much more to preserve our faith.
He gave his living memory—all that he knew, all that he glimpsed—sealed within ice.
As it thaws, open your mouth and harden your heart.
Receive his gift.
Remember what came before.

Location: ??

INSCRIPTION

The first vision came upon me like a waking dream.
Thrust into a vast chamber, I beheld a maiden, crowned with winterglass.
Her hand fell upon my throat and I shivered.
Trembling, I returned to the present, but her grasp remained an icy collar upon my neck, linking us forevermore.

INSCRIPTION

Kneel before the Immaculate.
Place your palm upon the Deathless Doctrine.
Surrender your pride, your vanity—or as you call it, your will.
This is the first sin.
Let go.
Allow her eternal wisdom, untouched and unspoiled, guide you.
Your spirit will not falter, if it is hers to command.

Location: ??

INSCRIPTION

The reward for loyalty is servitude.
Thus the Twiceborn requires no pledges.
They came here searching for answers, like you do now, but you will find nothing but silence and fury.
Throw yourself into the chasm.
Let the void take you and remake you.
You will be reborn, a Child of the Myriad, a sester or brether.

Location: ??

INSCRIPTION

We no longer remember our name.
We are a multitude, emptied and repoured into a human-like vessel, a comforting mirage.
Your eyes refuse to acknowledge our boundless form, but neither time or shape can confine us.

Location: ??

 

INSCRIPTION

With each sacrament, we deepen our doubts.
Refuse the comfort of conviction, brethers.
Close your eyes to the seduction of reason.
There is no comprehending our inscrutable gods.
We barely know ourselves.
Tell me, what fool would believe he could comprehend the Revered?

Location: ??

INSCRIPTION

A spider climbs carefully along a wet blade of grass.
The torments of transition enlighten with new perspectives for those who are open.
 A stinger pierces the flesh of an unloved keeper.
A tube swells and constricts.
A calmness brings with it nothing but hope of forestalling any more pain.

INSCRIPTION

The stone breathes, it lives.
Yes, look close, the obsidian writhes and squirms.
It is not a seamless stone, but a conflux of worms, black as oil, threaded together in a great, wriggling mass.

INSCRIPTION

Birds nesting inside a child's crumbling skull.
Two rows of teeth become one.
Elusive shapes dance endlessly in retinas.
A hard shelled parasite eats the kernel of a rose and takes its place.
Unbearable pain drags those who feel it into darkness.
Polished porcelain bowls defiled with specs of blood and bile.
A worm split asunder becomes something new.

INSCRIPTION

Stricken with all the ills that consumed his kin, Imrod, last of the (indecipherable) dragged himself before the Immolation.
He witnessed, as you will one day, the consecrated, living flame, always becoming, always feeding, as its form flakes away in torrents of ash.

Location: ??

INSCRIPTION

Why must great (indecipherable) die, while beggars and bandits and (indecipherable) flourish?
The body is little more than kindling that our spirits burn through.
Enflame your passions and forget your reluctance for ambition, for sacrifice.
No more coddling the infirm, no more sheltering the ill.
(indecipherable) the weak.
Purify the flesh.
Leave nothing but ashes.

Location: ??

 

INSCRIPTION

You are damned at birth, promised death.
This is the frailty of our flesh, but it is a falsehood.
The gift of immortality lies within reach, but you must be willing to take (indecipherable).
By force if you must.
Even if you suffer without end.
There is no (indecipherable) without sacrifice.
But there is ecstasy in agony.

The only message that passes between them is scrawled in stone.
Not unlike my own etchings. Do they fear the ephemeral word decaying upon their lips?

Etching

And what of my kin? Are you reading this, dear brother? Do you still remember how we played at scholarship? Simpler times. When our quandaries were mere dramatics, dressed up as theory.

Etching

These creatures, twisted and malformed, they're almost unrecognizable. Whatever gifts Hadern has lavished them with were wasted. They've strayed so far from the path, they're lost in a wilderness of their own making.

Their messiah planted his seeds and left. They seek a utopia which cannot exist.
Charmed and forgotten, choking on the nectar of false gods.
How high and mighty will they be when they consume this posion?

Location: In Flame Temple, enter the room with first sarcofagus, and hit the right wall just as you enter.


Etching

They sully their lips with the false wine.
It lulls their needs like a lover's caress.
But what of their lives, what of their former devotions? Left behind like a sack with a hole.
Forgotten like the tar addled night before.
Liquid filth is their sacrament and will be their downfall, it's that which we've seen and that which we shall sow.

Location: In Flame Temple, in room where last Sester is go downstairs and hit the wall in front of the chest.

My lute is life. I've been a man of simple pedigree, travelling the world, sharing fancy
