The Lure of Prophecy

Chapter One

The Parchment’s Lure

The threads of the accursed Wheel have spun together and set in motion events that shall once again threaten to bind us to the Cuer’ Dermar. Those who have sworn to the Great Lord have put their own personal greed before their oaths, and shall be punished. We serve the Master, and through the Master, we serve the Great Lord. We shall not stand idly by while the Sworn try to use us for their own ends above the will of the Great Lord. The Master has bent me to this task, and has personally ensured that I have the ability to permanently end this in a manner that will please the Great Lord. Those who walk in the light shall be my pawns to oppose the Sworn that have turned their back on the Great Lord’s will, and I shall sit back and watch what transpires.

…after all, the Master has opened my eyes.

I'm Back, and I'm 'Mad...

In a burst of irony, this is the 13th post of this story, and it is from the point of view of someone very, very bad... I guarantee that you will come across this one again later. Devil Not a very nice individual.

-Yeah, I know, it doesn't look like this is the 13th page of the story, but look up at the URL: see that little part that says segment_id=13. Yeah, that. Segment 13. You might be asking what happened to the missing pages?

Well, I will tell you.

I have no idea.

If I were to guess, I would say that Burnout probably created then deleted a couple of test pages while he was creating this "story" part of the website. Thus your missing segment pages.

That is only a guess, though. But I love the irony that the introduction of this particular "Bad Individual" was on the 13th page... Big Grin

So... umm, yeah. What is posted right now (as of December 1st) is Part 1 of Chapter 1. While in the process of writing Chapter 2 and 3, I made a significant discovery: In order for events and dialogue to happen the way I want them to, several events of the second half of Chapter 1 would have to be changed SIGNIFICANTLY. I did say that this was a learning experience for me... Big Grin It is just too bad that I figured out I would have to change quite a bit of the second half of chapter 1 on the evening of the 26th. Angry

Aah, the trials and tribulations of writing a serial such as this... sometimes, it is hard to go back. Wink I am learning more here than any Writing or English class ever taught me, however. Happy

Anyway, as a result, what you get (for now) is a LOT of Koreauras, and a little bit of foreshadowing. This particular section of Chapter 1 was about 10 Word document pages.
