Once again, the Warlocks Journal has found its way to Tiny Gorks workshop. I saw him flipping through it’s pages a few hours ago and i do believe he was mumbling something about artifacts! Now i know that Tiny Gork is somewhat an expert on something known as the Shadow Council. What… you, you don’t .. you have never heard about the Shadow Council ?
There once was… many fateful stories starts with these words and in this case it is no less true and yet it might still prove to be wrong. You know how sometimes things go awry between members of a group? Sometimes maybe even unfounded and based on misunderstandings or sheer paranoia? Well, i must be honest and lay it out right now that i cannot tell you which it was for this was a struggle between gods and cosmic powers. But, there once was a group of gods and powers that worked the planes as a sort of mercenary group, they could be hired by other entities, gods and otherwise influential beings and organisations in the planes. They were known as the Shadow Council and their pressence on the planes was a major factor in the whole political game of deities, gods, devils, demons and cosmic powers.
So here is what i believe the Journal is all about right now…
To shatter and absorb the Shadow Council and its powers, a former exiled member created a mighty artifact via powerful sources of Law & Chaos. When used the artifact shattered also and was scattered through time and realities. Across multiple planes and timelines the artifact was broken into seven pieces, lesser artifact onto themselves. Due to being created partly by the essence of Chaos these pieces tend to randomly teleport through time and space and take many different forms. The forces of both Law & Chaos are drawn to these fragments, some are even trying to re-forge the artifact as it is rumoured in some circles to be the most powerful artifact ever created.
One of the fragments was briefly in the custody of a TimeHunter who claimed to have found the piece hidden inside a song. Now mind you, it was not hidden within words on a page but in the physical manifistation of the song. It took a party of adventurers singing the song at a specific site during a major event to manifest the item.
I believe that the Warlocks Journal is recording all signs, rumours, sightings, encounters and theory about the Sepharil Fragments.
