Sometimes, even the bravest and wise adventurers need a bit of an edge. With the arrival of Dungeon Siege II drawing closer, we’ve uncovered the third of several Azunite Prophecies. In a world of mystery and intrigue, one should be prepare for the unexpected. Have a look...
Historical note: The following fragment from the Scrolls of the Agallan Foothills refers to no known figure in the First Age, and so is intriguing, as it may well be a prophecy of contemporary events. This is nebulous from a scholarly perspective; what may seem like a clear fulfillment of prophecy in one era is likely to be eclipsed by an equally compelling event in another. Nonetheless, the "weapon of the Unmaker" reference is clearly a nod to Zaramoth's lost sword, and so provides us with one objective criterion to watch for, now and in times to come.
-- Bidelia of Aman’lu
A race of Giants shall be marked by betrayal.
Branded on their flesh, branded on their souls, they shall not know their own markings. But they shall remember the forgotten stars.
Cursed with life, they shall bear the centuries.
Blessed with sleep, they shall forget their birth.
They shall resist the company of mortals, driven on a path to kinsmen unknown. Astute wit in stout frames; the labor of beasts shall be their lot.
Honest souls in honest labor; they shall be the accused.
The solitary sojourners shall look to ancient heights for their redemption.
And it shall not come until a great ending.
We'll be back next month for another prophetic release, courtesy of Microsoft Game Studios. Dungeon Siege II is scheduled to ship in Spring 2005.
