Yes indeed Alariels report is one to be commended good work and a recommended read.

OK lets see now we have all the words um....

The People of the Blue sky are united.... Only reference I can think of is Air elves um but to do with Chung Po don't know.

All who hear their Falling Hooves, will be smited......Hooves only creatures to bear this description is a Balrog or greater hepath, but some Fay creatures also are hooved I think?

The skies will darken under their many arrow………Sounds bad!

Banished will be the people of Chung Po
from Nan Jing, where the Sacred River ran….Not sure on Akari geography anybody got a map?

Through caverns measureless to man…… Known location or referring back to the Balrog um no lets not go down that train of thought.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round:
The shadow of the dome of pleasure
Floated midway on the waves;
And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed
And drunk the milk of Paradise.

Anyway allot to ponder.

Sun Tsu has this been passed on to the Celestial Bureaucracy?

I can take it there if you so wish it. I can enlighten you on one thing - Nan Jing is the current capital of Chung Po.

I don't think Balrogs have been seen in Shou Lun, although there are many Oni, which come close...

Have you heard of the Kirin? A legendary creature with the body of a dear, the tail of an ox, and the hooves of a horse.

I most humbly regret that is all i can think of

Yours honourably

every time i think of akari island it brings bad memories. been attacked by a blue lightning dragon with an attitude problem.

having the beating of a life time off no.2 son who was extremely up his own maiming me it hurt. then finding out we lost the resistance leader.

so when i hear the skies will be darkened with arrows you'll understand why such a thing makes me apprehensive when i got no shield. dont remember seeing a balrog there though are you sure it is a balrog.

or has someone got black lotus again and started corrupting everyone maybe worth checking.

Greetings ignorant outlanders.

I must read this report you mention, it was most regrettable that I was not able to go on that mission. In my culture dragons are celestial creatures and are known for their great wisdom and prohpecy.

Perhaps I can be of some help in this matter.
Firstly, Akari Island is not the name of the plane to which you refer. As Tsun Su mentions, the plane's name is Shou Lun.
Akari island is to the east of the continent of the mighty Chung Po empire and east of that is the island of Sukoku.

I can't be of much assisitance with the second half of this prophecy but the first part sounds very much like it is referring to an incursion into Chung Po by the numberless plains barbarians from the west. They live on the endless steppes, hence the reference to the people of the Blue Sky. They have long been a threat to Chung Po.

Leitha, I would have dearly loved to have seen this celestial dragon you speak of. I'm sure it's majesty was wonderous to behold.

shen manchu

glory unto the name of the earth mother all her creatures are wonderous to behold and her miricles are great but when it comes in to fight and kill us, it loses its wonderousness. though i will always attempt to stop any cycles end for no purpose it is sometimes neccersary to end a cycle. the cycle does not simply offer continuous unending life. it begins it grows, it spawns new life, grows old and dies. the cycle ends to allow a new one to continue its course. hence why the cycle is never ending. there is always a new chapter to a story.

shou lun then, i have been to akari on the eve of their new cycle. or new year as many call it. i was attacked then as i was attacked on shou lun, they seem to enjoy combat.

tinugens men possibly? i remember these barbarians well. is it possible we may have started a course of events that will change the natural course in that land.

Dragons are not creatures of your Earth Mother, they are divine, celestial beings and are the blessed children of Lei Gong the thunder lord and Tian Mu the lightning mistress.
But yes, I'm sure it was difficult to appreciate it's glory when it was trying to reduce you to ash.

Temujin...
That name sounds familiar. What a surprise to learn that once more the valley alliance has had a hand in starting calamitous events on Shou Lun...

this was the name of the leader of the group of barbarians we formed an alliance with in order to take down the evil manchu bloke who was keeping the emperor under the black lotus. was it something like that its all strange sounding stuff to me still.

The earth mother created all things of natural entity even magic. she is highest of all things nothing is more important than her word. it is blasphemy that she is lower than anything! but as you seem to be new here i will inform you there are many different people in the towers and have many beliefs.

By her glory, i do not understand how freeing an oppressed people is wrong and freeing the emperors mind from the black lotus and subsequently his people is a calamitous events. sometimes empires must fall for a stronger one to take over, hence the strong survive and the weak die away.

I remember Timugen been a good fellow. he offered us warm hospitality and with the red lotus and the people of that land aided us in our work and many laid down their lives in the just and noble cause. he was a good man and a strong warrior.

Greeting honourable Shen Manchu San, i do not believe we have met, but your wisdom pierces like a sun beam through the clouds.

Leitha you are indeed correct although the Valley Alliance has altered the destiny of Shou Lun, our actions were imperative to remove the weed that was Zwang Zei Manchu. Once the weed has died, the earth is ready for new life to grow. Indeed one of my favourite Shoulin proverbs is "Life is Death, Death is Life"!

Shen, i cannot help but notice that your name is also Manchu, i am surprised you have not returned to the Celestial Bureaucracy tower with the others of your family?

Sun Tzu,

I had a feeling your name was familiar to me, you are the monastry person who came out the shoulin temple at shou lun when you and the abbot were under that vile stuffs effects. ooh it were nasty stuff.

but that zweng zei manchu, i pray i never meet a family that tough again, well we sent them onto the glory of the cycle and though the bodies will be recycled into the earth and the creatures their spirits will begin again somewhere i hope they never gain such strength. just dealing with one was enough let alone all of them, but we stood our ground and sent them on. what glory we did that day.

i'm sure i also know shen manchu from somewhere, someone we met but my memory isnt that great.
