The Forsaken Sovereign

"The veil of sanity is a lie we tell ourselves when we gaze at the night sky, hoping, in a stifled corner of our mind, that the stars aren't gazing back." — A nameless, insignificant, yet ambitious young man once attempted to rescue his family from poverty. But as he found hope, he also stumbled upon despair. After losing everything to the darkness of death, including himself, he woke up in another world, stuck in the body of an eleven-year-old boy with a peculiar appearance. He soon discovered that he was a Celestial Offering—a holy sacrifice, carefully groomed by the Temple of Stars to be given to the Gods Beyond. His fate had already been sealed, for his blood would spill under the seven-pointed star and consecrate the birth of a new era for his nation. Armed with nothing but his wit and the trail of good fortune, he would attempt to challenge this destiny, braving the countless hurdles that lay in waiting and the unfathomable horrors they harbored. In a realm of magecraft, occult rituals, madness, and prowling Eidolons, he could only count on himself to survive, as the threat of insanity loomed over everyone equally, and nothing could slow its ineluctable embrace. — Discord: Naphulae#1813

Epiphany

After nearly two hours at full speed through western Sethia's vast plains, the group stopped at a downward slope, leading to a large, water-filled depression.

The basin was expansive enough to cover the entirety of Mursa, with a small island in its center, nestled at the crossing of two cascading flows. The waters sported a deep, unnatural blue, eerily similar to the Mana-inflicted saturation he had experienced near Isonoe's workshop.

The clouds appeared to shift their course whenever they closed onto its perimeter, painting a nebulous circle atop the landscape. The sight of it, coupled with the Vile Ichor's dreadful song, was more than enough to put Meilyr on edge.

"This place is a little too dangerous for my taste," Alwina muttered with a gulp. "How come the Magus Societas hasn't sealed it yet?"
