The Codex of Duri

The Codex of Duri, which is a heavy tome bound in monstrous blue dragonscale and trimmed with copper, was previously in posession of the Wizard of Memphun. Several of its pages appear blank, and there is scrawled list of dates, both past and future, near the front of the book.

Look above, through time and space
as Sun and sky reveal their face
doom foretold though atmosphere
A wrath of old awakens near
he is the blackened sky
mortals quake beneath his hand
he is the end of nations
That rains death upon the land
Though another ancient sent to me
A tale of sacrifice; and sang:
There is a void where my heart should be
But a stone now holds its place
While there is likeness of the human form
No existence lights my face
Take my heart if you’d survive
To behold his wrath to come
When the sky shall fall, the gates doth burst –
the curse of life undone.
