These Signs were forseen by Hyskosa, a Vistani most gifted
with the Sight. Spread Word of these wherever you travel.
Only the true hearted can stop the fall of the night of evil.

 

The night of evil shall descend on the land

When this hexad of signs is near at hand.

 

In the house of Daergon the sorcerer born

Through life, unlife, unliving shall scorn.

 

The lifeless child of stern mother found

Heralds a time, night of evil unbound.

 

The light of the sky shining over the dead

shall gutter and fall, turning all to red.

 

Seventh time the son of suns doth rise

To send the knave to an eternity of cries.

 

Inajira will make his fortunes reverse

Dooming all to live with the dreaded curse.
