((This is long, and I'm putting it in two seperate post. Redwing if you want your characters to talk during this be my quest, just insert it where you want. However they will be ignored so it won't affect anything))

*Vidar reads the runes on the Key and smiles, he gives the key back to Marin. Vidar talks not allowing for any intteruptions*

Vidar: All is not lost, hope remains. Allow me to explain. After the holocaust I searched in our archives for some clue as to why this happened. In desperation I asked the Norns, who only told me to seek the OneEye's missing eye. With that I examined this. *Vidar pulls out a beautiful ornate box, containing the Eye of Odin* I found a secrete compartment that contained what I sought 3 prophecies. The first one stated:

Ragnarok impure,
Gotterdammerung has occured,
Doom has come early that should not have
Aesir, now Vanir deprived of All-Father
Death of stars shall reveal
One tool that alone
Can destroy destiny or set it right
To find, seek:


It ended there, incomplete. The second is why I had Heimdall bring the children here. It read:

Two children hold the key to the Gotterdammerung Mystery

The key holder that the children hold completes the first prophecy. It now read as like this.

Ragnarok impure,
Gotterdammerung has occured,
Doom has come early that should not have
Aesir, now Vanir deprived of All-Father
Death of stars shall reveal
One tool that alone
Can destroy destiny or set it right
To find, seek:
Ten keys
Seven gates
Fire, Eye, and Ice
Wake the Wolf unlocked from its tomb
All the legions of Asgard cannot twist time, but a silver ball will.


The final prophecy that this box contained Gives instuctions and consequences.

Quest must be undertaken,
By the progeny of the dead, and their friends
If not, all will come to a terrible end.
The wolf Fenrir has been unleashed
Will complete the destruction that has begun
Twenty two years and he will be done.


What does this all mean you may be asking yourselves. It is simple as it is complex. The easy version is this. An event called Gotterdammerung occured a little over four standard days ago. An event that should not have happened. We have been given a chance to correct it. However, in twenty two years if we fail, this galaxy will be destroyed completly, by Fenrir.

Heimdall: Fenrir, has been freed?

Vidar: I'm afraid so. I'll allow Idun to explain and clear things up for our guests. After that we will answer any question you have.
