Vami_IV has been added to the waiting list.
Saucix and Nisos go with the crowd to the cathedral.
Nisos rolled Int 17+16
Nisos recalls his classes in the field of prophetic phenomena, where the rare omen of the red moon was discussed. It is said that it forebodes a great number of disturbing events across the world. The last appearance of the red moon, about three hundred years ago, was indeed followed by several terrible things, such as the outbreak of the Sorcerer's War, the Universal Trials in Ovgrod and the appointment of Mazlowe Proudfrost to headmaster of the Dragon School. Earlier records of events following the red moon are similarly awful, but too shrouded in myth and legend to be trusted.
The cathedral is rapidly filled with people. The din of voices quietens as Mother Salvegard appears at the podium.
"People of Eisgir, I know you are filled with fear of what we have seen tonight. But know this: Päkkaan watches over us all as always, and with Him on our side, what could possibly hurt us? Indeed, He already sent warning signs to our fang-readers. Over the coming days, the priesthood will enact rituals of protection over the city, and agents of the church are already out in the field to discover any threat before it reaches us." Mother Salvegard's gaze seems to pick Saucix out in the crowd for a second. "Now Lord Akjar wishes to address you."
Lord Akjar, the political leader of Eisgir and the nearby lands, ascends to the podium.
"Citizens of Eisgir, I take this omen most seriously. The city guard has been put on highest alert, and will remain so until conclusive fang-readings shows that danger has passed. Report any and all suspicious occurences to your nearest guardhouse immediately. Rest assured that if there is any threat to Eisgir, whether physical or spiritual, we are prepared for it."
"Now let us pray, and then let us go home and sleep", Mother Salvegard says.
The congregation joins in the "Look to us, great Päkkaan" prayer.
