Letter from the Dragon Priestess
Beware the Whispers, Hero!
I am so glad our paths crossed! You do not know me, though you may think you remember who I am. We have never met, but I know you well. I know ALL of you well! And that is why I have traveled so far. I did not think to leave my grove, but when the letter came from Falconreach, I knew I had to travel FAST.
You never know when the whispers will come. The knowledge you need is inside you. The whispers of your past are only heard NOW.
Whispers are floating through the air. Chaos - or something claiming to BE Chaos - has begun talking directly to the Heroes of Lore.
Bells are ringing over Swordhaven. Bells no one can hear. Ringing ringing... ringing in the change to come.
They began in Swordhaven, but heroes across Lore have begun hearing them. They spread rumors of Chaos, of fear, of failure.
Dreams and blades and chicken eggs. Soon you will know how they feel.
Lady Celestia has always watched over Lore's heroes.
This has never happened before, and it is NOT a good sign. The stronger the Champion of Chaos grows, the more danger we are all in. I MUST see King Alteon before it is too late!
If you can hear this you have been targeted by Chaos. Your destiny is known.
Though I know the royal family is busy preparing for the coming ceremony, they WILL need to listen to me. The danger is only growing greater, and I fear that no dragon magic - or Dragon's magic - will be enough to save us unless we begin preparing NOW!
Chaos is like a cat. When you understand why you will be one step closer to conquering me.
You have done so much, and it is only because you have that we have a chance to triumph. We depend on you, Hero. Whatever you do...
I will leave you with one final thought... for now. Beware the doomsayers and nightmare children. Prophecies are only dangerous when they come true.
DO NOT listen to the whispers!
