Day 18 of the Month of Thoth, Year of the Falcon

The history of this island is far greater than we knew. On a stone tablet within the temple of X'chotl I found the writings of an Acheronian scholar who had dedicated himself to studying the tower and the vaults.

He speaks of the 'Elder Races' and the triumph of man. He mentions the Serpent-men and Valusia. These names make me uneasy, as if some ancient instinct, long unused, begins to awaken.

He has also named the metal of which the vaults and tower are constructed. Eldarium. I found a decaying chunk of it here, in the ruins, and have been studying it myself.

There is much to learn but time is my ally.

Day 5 of the Month of Tobi, Year of the Falcon

We have been on this island for a year.

We have gathered the remaining colonists and spoken to them with the righteous voice of Set. I have never been an orator, but the words seem to flow from my tongue like liquid fire, igniting my followers to a religious fervor.

The words seem to come from my dreams.

Tonight we will march across the causeway and bring death to those who betrayed us. Tonight we will bring justice to those who have caused us such great harm.

Blood for Blood.

Day 12 of the Month of Epep, Year of the Dog

Progress continues on translating the shrines. I have deciphered the story of the Elder races - I've made even more progress than the Archeronians.

They speak of the shrines as places where they made sacrifice to the 'crawling chaos'. The word here is unclear, it could also mean 'maelstrom'. In return for their sacrifice, they were rewarded with 'bounty from across the realms'.

I'm trying to understand exactly what they did, so that I can replicate the process.

The whispers in my dreams have grown urgent, encouraging this line of thought.

Day 17 of the Month of Epep, Year of the Dog

The ritual failed. Though the instructions were precise and the quantities were adequate, it is as if the sorcery that powers the rituals is missing.

Theoretically the ritual should cause a surge, that ripples across dimensions and summons something to this location, via the tower. But the power source seems to be missing.

I keep finding references in the Elder scripts to 'Maelstroms' and 'storms', but I have no such thing since my arrival on the island.

Perhaps this is what is missing. Perhaps the tower contained the source.

Day 27 of the Month of Epep, Year of the Dog

I have found guidance in my dreams and it was as I suspected.

I have walked the vaults of the Elder Races in a dream, stepping softly to avoid awakening them from their aeons long slumbers. I have used their spheres of knowledge and I have seen their desperate attempts to escape from their mortal enemies. Humans.

They are nothing more than remnants of a forgotten past - the last vestiges of a world long left behind.

And yet, in their history I found the key I have been looking for. The first time they had it, they lost it to betrayal.

Then they made a flawed copy - which almost drove them to their extinction - yet still worked enough to summon the power necessary. They created the vaults as a refuge from their own foolishness.

I will make a copy of my own. And it will be flawless.

Day 9 of the Month of Mekhir, Year of the Elephant

The construction of the artefact goes at a snails pace. To avoid the mistakes of the Elders I must proceed slowly and carefully - with each painstaking detail. Each facet must be carved and polished to perfection. It does not yet shine.

But it will.

South West Island, one of the shipwrecks near the 'bridge'.

Day 30 of the Month of Mesore, Year of the Tiger

It is done. I feel... better. The catharsis as I wrapped my hands around her slender neck while she slept. The widening of her eyes as she recognized me. The light in them dying as her death rattled out of her throat.

My past is dead. I go to open the way.

Description[edit | edit source]

Day 1, Year of the Lion

The Tower calls and I come. It does not call to me, but to the object I carry with me. But I am its master.

The doorway opens before me and I pause to reflect. I will enter the tower. The Maelstrom will begin again. The Vaults will open.

This is my will.

I am Siptah. This is my isle.
