    Addendum To The Shattering

    From time to time, I like to take Ultima too seriously. Generally with my good friend captain nhbdy. One such time was during the ride from Fairfax VA to North Carolina. We had just been exposed to the first town hall in a while and had Ultima on the brains. Driving down the long road, mergadergah asleep in the back seat, I began to ramble like the mad nystul from ultima 7 about the shattering. What exactly were the physics of the shattering? what was the entire process like?

    This is my take on it, and I would love to hear yours.

    There existed out world, as we knew it. Single and unique. Floating in the endless void that is space, surrounded by 8 planets and two moons.

    Now Mondain had this jewel, this gem of immortality... but it did not always encase the world as we knew it. In Sosaria, alchemy rivals magic in power, and that would mean that Mondain was the worlds greatest alchemist, and as we all know, Lord British, the worlds best mage.

    To escape the hellish nightmare that is the Enchantress Minax, Lord British with his council of mages cast a spell to create facets of the realm they lived in. Thus the creation of Trammel and Felucca. These two new worlds were in fact mirrors of one another. And in lore, they should effect one another jointly. A decent example is the faction take overs in fel, and subsequent invasions in trammel during the warriors of destiny campaign.

    My guess, is that Mondain was the first person to use this type of magic spell, and that he in fact replicated the world as it was in space, and placed this replica within the gem of immortality. The world was now bound by the gem.

    Both worlds were now in a joint relationship. what happened to one would happen to the other in some shape or form. When the stranger felled Mondain, the gem was shattered, and the replicated world was.....well, replicated several times over. I theorize that this caused the original world to shatter as well. The original world was broken into as many pieces as Mondains gem, each with a corresponding replicated world to be joint with.

    But what does this all mean?

    Could an astronomer gaze into the night sky and see a world within a gem?
    Do we dwell in the original world or Mondains generated facet?
    When Lord British created trammel, did he really just bring the corresponding Original world in to the same realm as one of Mondains?
    (we all know he knows more about the shattering than he lets on *cough cough* My Story)
    IE: All of mondains shattered worlds were felucca's, and the shattered real worlds are trammels?
    This would explain why one is so harsh, as it was warped under the wrath of Mondain before it he was killed, creating orcs and headless ect.

    I come asking for forgiveness, having also been shuned by the people at large, so I will start by being egoistic and end with my plea so that my discourse can be ethical and unscathed.

    I see you are trying to get the loremaster to speak again. Let my ego echo along those halls for just a moment, since after all I am but another companion : keeper of the gates of the garden of virtue ! I also conjure on some of the other companions and great members of this community for heartfelt contribution to this delicate question. One by one, you will eventually realise the depth to which this goes, may this explain my earthbound integrity and the vehemence with which I defend it.

    I am going to be quite blunt. Your heart is young, I like you, and truth must be told to the young at heart that seek ; as I was allowed to get a glimpse of Nystul's works I carefully utter the infinite.

    Nystul was a much greater mage than lord British ever hoped to be, he was a bit of everything, his words and his pace had a way of reaching deep like no other man, he was versed in language, lore, philosophy ; name it and it would become his own self-challenge the wisps used to say. This is the moment when speaking of me isn't necessary since I only witnessed the moment, only I was lucky enough to be at the right place at the right moments to get a glimpse of what the importance of the time was, and there is not much left, time that is ! I am thus extreemly honored to be allowed to infuse some of my past creativity into this colorful weave that is you atlantic players.

    He was also one that not only spoke with the wisps but understood their complex tongue in his own way. He also was able to give them a basic understanding of humankind before his departure, which is a very important event in britannia's history.

    I quote :
    We, taking the wisp words now, are certain you are already taking perspective Avatar, what is at stake here, we are not only talking about the faith of Sosaria anymore, but of the entire universe, who, ruled out by the guardian within this galaxy cannot interfer or plagiarise our destiny.

    Time is too short for us to be taking latitudes and longitudes with the divisive power of cohersion this entails in your world which is of very little importance to us. The way is narrow and also many will fall prey to the guardian's myriads of temptations and anguishes ; we shall not take humankind on our shoulders this has to be walked with coherence and preponderance, human understanding.

    Do not forget about Exodus and its time travelling ! We learned lessons, we need to use the lessons to progress or we will stall !

    The wisps are very uneasy right now, forgive them for the tone.

    Quoting again :
    This is very important to note.

    :D

    Beren, Berem... I have been called many names, I have lived many times and know ; ironic would you say ?

    Is it supposed to be symbolic having an eternal human made immortal ? Anyhow it seems that now that I speak of it, we think back. I can easily understand why the summoned evil entered me so easily, there was this holographic gap where my hand is ; I never felt it coming and once again did things I deeply regret.

    I put my self importance aside in this matter, because one way or the other it will all be the same for me, I have lost count of lives, I am blended in the view. But would you rather have a truthful world or a bland, dull, faded out excuse for a home ? You can thank me later Avatar because time is short, every one of you has a special part to play and this fate is not something that goes unnoticed ; I have been asked to be impartial and... knowing the qualities and distortions of mankind by heart in a very ludicrously mundane way, I will be of service at the end of time to weight your intents and see if you are worthy of entering the garden of virtue which I don't even have any idea about yet.

    Yes I am young, not fully a matured man yet, and I do not know everything but I know this one thing, you are not strange to play your role for something that is worth it, something that lives within us and will not surrender. Time swings by and far by now and the exposition of unified tought is acceptable and ethical. My hope is that noone will fear and go forward to discover the danger that is at stake, those that consider themselves evil will have to join in with those that deem themselves good to succeed in this endeavor.

    The time lord never tells a truth that dosen't benefit him, mark his pseudo-daemoniac influence and do not forget his bar-gains.

    That was me, before my transformation or fusion call it what you will, I was taken into the cabal as a very young kid, but I did not know...

    Since the community already bestowed me forgiveness on these matters despite my erratic and sometimes beligerent attitude, I shall pursue and persevere.

    Mondain cast one last spell when I accidently shattered the gem, it was set the proper ground to give life to this evil which has escaped me the day I was robed as a companion.

    My brief exposure to its dynamics has almost destroyed me and I am most likely one of the most mentally stable people there can be, I am a nerd and a meek geek.

    Mondain's child is now out there, and yes, sorry, I told him about about endocronological biodynamic equations when he looked in my eyes, threatning my family I weakly gave him this multi-dimentional knowledge but was able to hide him a part, thus woman will be free of the influence from this evil ; which is good news since they have such a broader and more vast array of intelligences than us men ; and that the current goal being ethical...

    To be honest, in all impunity I once again ask for the forgiveness of the community because I hid this horrible truth, being ashamed of myself in a non-excusable way.

    I was once so evil, and I lied almost as a reflex... but today I repent which allows me to write this letter to you.

    Hope, for the times, they are a'changin.

    :grouphug:

    P.S. : Thanks to Sirideain for his awesome website.

    Interesting, I cant believe I read that entire thing. None of that had anything to do with the shattering.

    You once came to my site and told me how inaccurate you thought siridean's page was. Now i'm just confused. Great site though. Cool post.

    It has everything to do with the shattering, this confluence of forces in our universe did not happen only in one moment, it is the resonating integrity of many timelines.

    It was also multi-locational, I said it was incomplete, not incorrect if I ever did comment his website.

    Shattering the gem was an accident caused by Mondain's evil aura and his desperate reaction when he saw that I would not be maimed by his illusions.

    I accidentally pushed the gem with my sword, and mondain cursed it in his last breath while I was just too distracted by the contradictory feeling of beauty and awe I felt about the jewel.

    The goal was not binding the world to the gem, it was to bind the gem and then get it to birth life designed by Mondain's twisted mind.

    In the confluence of time he summoned (which is how I got through to him) he was on the verge of accomplishing his goal.

    The aborted baby is now in good terms with the guardian, who is going to use it as leverage to dominate the universe. The wisps are very hazy about this type of drama which they understand nothing of, this explains why the timelord did not intervene.

    Mondain never understoof the depth of his father's philosophies about the battles of power in the "sky". This is why this new evil dosen't even have an etiquette to compound with... I have kept it afloat for as long as I could, now it won't even listen to me anymore.

    The spirit of mondain has fused with Xandria's offspring in an akward way, each part suffering unimaginable pain. It is no simple task to explain what happened in human words, but I can do my best if you have more precise questions.

    It seems noone cares about suffering or let alone questions...
