The Cataclysm 3 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 26  
While I am no follower of the "Evil Sphere", I cannot be silent on this, though some may not like ter hear it.

A couple o' years ago, when I returned to the Valley, I met a Shadowsfall who asked if a certain event 'ad occurred in the lands of the 4+1, my 'ome.

Now Keelty 'ad already told me this 'ad 'appened.

The Shadowsfall said then that this event was the third and final portent that the Cataclysm was to come - one of the others being that no-one can leave the plane.

Per'aps it 'as been foreseen that the "evil sphere" in ascendancy for three Conjunctions precedes the Cataclysm but the portents that the Shadowsfall were goin' off are already in place.


For my part, I 'umbly apologise to everyone that I was not able to do more to convince my comrades at the time of the last Conjunction to return it to the "Good Sphere".

Cerridwen,

I too find it somewhat depressing that the general consensus is that it has to be a third conjunction of evil.

Are you suggesting that it is perhaps not necessary for the Cataclysm to occur?

Given that it appears that there only seem to be two candidates for being the conjunction anchors, we don't seem to have a great deal of choice at this juncture.

Also, I don't particularly relish the thought of Sir Danus conjoining with the good sphere.

Ello Ichabod

Now I hadn't thought of it like that. I'd assumed someone with the gift o' true sight 'ad just foreseen that an evil third conjunction would come ter pass.

But what if you're right, that the Cataclysm will occur whatever Sphere is in ascendancy?

You'd wonder that if the "Good Sphere" was in ascendancy, the effects of the Cataclysm on Orin Rakatha might not be soo devastatin'.

On the other 'and, if Sir Danus 'as got it in fer the Valley Tower, and he's the anchor, would we as a people suffer more?

That's all too complicated fer the likes o' me. However, as a follower of the 3-in-1, I can say that it's not good that one "Sphere" dominates fer so long, they should be in balance.

Now that's not a bad idea! I wonder if there is a way to do this? All three in balance so none get the upper hand, I'm no scholar to look into this but if anyone who is might wanna take a peek to see if it is at possible?! I would happily raise my sword and don my shield in the workings of this idea

For the last two conjunctions, the actions of a small group 'ave been amplified to determine the result of the Conjunction.

Fer the first one o' these, I remember hearing that incidents like Magellan, 'oo was then a high priest of th'Hospital, tricking the Halmadonians and stealing the Sword o' Law from 'em 'elped sway the Conjunction towards Evil.

Fer the second one, somehow, th'Oppawang linked the result of the Conjunction to the battle for Orlando's soul, and the actions of our group were magnified as we travelled from plane ter plane ter stop the Kalid from gainin' control over the Wizards Concillium. Officially, we were s'pposed ter make it turn Neutral, but that's a tricky thing ter do. High Priest Teppic explained that on Thranduil, this probably meant "kill everyone".

The White Retreat were supportin' th'official line but woulda been 'appy if it turned Good. Unfortunately, we missed numerous opportunities ter do the right thing, like stoppin' the T'an's man from teachin' th'Evil sphere ter the locals, mainly thanks to some non-Priests 'oo were insistent that some words on little scraps o' paper were more important than listenin' ter yer heart.

Fer the third conjunction, who knows what is going ter influence it? Well, I s'pose the Dreadlord probably does.

Ter bring things in balance yer'd probably be best off swinging it back ter the "Good Sphere" although as Ichabod notes, Sir Danus as an anchor fer this isn't the best o' outcomes, as he's so extreme 'imself.

Cerridwin, I'm reminded of the saying

For evil to succeed all it takes is for good men to do nothing.

But perhaps it should be amended to read

For evil to succeed all it takes is for a few good men to be less than good.

If there was some way to influence the conjunction to Neutral then I would be in favour of that but it must remain a dream for the moment.

Ah yes,Cerridwin, that brings back memories. As I remember the way of Neutrality on Thranduil was to simply kill everything, but kill them all equally.

Which reminds me that the path to Balance can be a deceptive one. Even servants of Balance must become servants of Good or Evil as events dictate. Is anyone truly in Balance at any given time? We should not necessarily fear our urges to be kind, or be cruel at times, they are part of who we are. Sometimes we have to revel in the rage of the storm to enjoy the tranquility afterwards.

Perhaps, on this occasion, becoming a servant of Evil and provoking the cataclysm is the way to Balance? Isn't the cataclysm the ultimate balancer, restoring the will of the mystics and the status quo - it seems to have been so in the past. Indeed if we take the long term view, over decades or lifetimes, a third ascension of evil may seem but a blip.

Ichabod,

Per'aps, but I'd be wary of ascribing morality to the "Spheres".

Where I come from, what you might call the "Good Sphere" is more about the givin' of life, an' the "Evil Sphere" about the takin' of it, or death. Both are natural, an' part of the wheel o' life.

Qualities that I would associate with the word good, such as kindness and benevolence, are not always demonstreeted by those who follow the "Good Sphere", an' conversely, I 'ave even seen the so-called "Evil Sphere" used as an act o' mercy.


Teppic,

I guess what will be will be. An' we know fer sure that that will include the Cataclysm. So there's no point protestin' that.

I jus' hope not too many innocents suffer fer it.

I does agreee with Ceri! I haz awayz thort tha tha Light Sphere, The Grey Sphere an The Dark Sphere is a betta descriptshun. Depends wot ya think is gud an wot is eeevil. I has seen a lotta things dun in da name of da Light Sphere that is reely not good. And lotta Dark Sphere peple has done a lotta good.

I is a High Priest of the Dark Sphere an I is a Good Goblin! I showd all them hoo thort Goblins r yousless!

Yoo be kareful wot yoo wish fer. Gettin asendancee of da Light Sphere wil not be all yoo tink it is. It wil be bad. Fur instanse, yoo think havin lotsa Dark spher peeple arund is bad, wayt till yoo see al dem Halmadon Heights Knights goin rown killin anythin they dont like, and healing eech other so yoo cant stop them.

I agree with elbow, protracted fights against them can be a big pain. the problem being, either way can bring both destruction and prosperity just in different guises.
