And it shall come to pass that what men made shall be shattered,
and the Shadow shall lie across the Pattern of the Age,
and the Dark One shall once more lay his hand upon the world of man.
Women shall weep and men quail as the nations of the earth are rent like rotting cloth.
Neither shall anything stand or abide...
The Shadow shall rise across the world, and darken every land, even to the smallest corner, and there shall be neither Light nor safety.
And he who shall be born of the Dawn, born of the Maiden, according to Prophecy,
he shall stretch forth his hands to catch the Shadow,
and the world shall scream in the pain of salvation.
All Glory be to the Creator, and to the Light, and to he who shall be born again. May the Light save us from him.
Yet one shall be born to face the Shadow,
born once more as he was born before,
and shall be born again, time without end.
The Dragon shall be Reborn,
and there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth at his rebirth.
In sackcloth and ashes shall he clothe the people,
and he shall break the world again by his coming,
tearing apart all ties that bind.
Like the unfettered dawn shall he blind us, and burn us,
yet shall the Dragon Reborn confront the Shadow at the Last Battle,
and his blood shall give us the Light.
Let tears flow, O ye people of the world.
Weep for your salvation.
Twice and twice shall he be marked, twice to live, and twice to die.
Once the heron, to set his path.
Twice the heron, to name him true.
Once the Dragon, for remembrance lost.
Twice the Dragon, for the price he must pay.
There can be no health in us, nor any good thing grow,
for the land is one with the Dragon Reborn, and he is one with the land.
Soul of fire, heart of stone, in pride he conquers, forcing the proud to yield.
He calls upon the mountains to kneel, and the seas to give way, and the very skies to bow.
Pray that the heart of stone remembers tears, and the soul of fire, love.
As the plow breaks the earth shall he break the lives of men,
and all that was shall be consumed in the fire of his eyes.
The trumpets of war shall sound at his footsteps,
the ravens feed at his voice,
and he shall wear a crown of swords.
At the end of time,
when the many become one,
the last storm shall gather its angry winds
to destroy a land already dying.
And at its center,
the blind man shall stand
upon his own grave.
There he shall see again,
and weep for what has been wrought.
And the Shadow fell upon the Land, and the World was riven stone from stone.
The oceans fled, and the mountains were swallowed up,
and the nations were scattered to the eight corners of the World.
The moon was as blood, and the sun was as ashes.
The seas boiled, and the living envied the dead.
All was shattered, and all but memory lost, and one memory above all others,
of him who brought the Shadow and the Breaking of the World.
And him they named Dragon.
And it came to pass in those days, as it had come before and would come again,
that the Dark lay heavy on the land and weighed down the hearts of men,
and the green things failed, and hope died.
And men cried out to the Creator, praying,
O Light of the Heavens, Light of the World, let the Promised One be born of the mountain,
according to the Prophecies, as he was in Ages past and will be in Ages to come.
Let the Prince of the Morning sing to the land that green things will grow
and the valleys give forth lambs.
Let the arm of the Lord of the Dawn shelter us from the Dark,
and the great sword of justice defend us.
Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.
