To bitter end the forests clasp
Relent and heed the call
To wrest themselves from hollow grasp
Of hatred's bitter sprawl

In bonded fate their hearts arise
And under curse renowned
Release the long engendered ties
Of enmity unbound

With aid at last to foes reply
Their winged spears untold
Rejoin the caverns from the sky
To smite the curse of old.

The merfolk culture is built on the prophetic Gift. Nearly all men produce a portent every twenty days, and they devote their lives to interpretation. For more about the role and inner workings of prophesy, check out the Prophesy Appendix above.

Alongside every prophesy is an attribution block. This block contains a byline giving the name of the person who said the prophesy, and a dateline giving the day the prophesy was first said. Here is the attribution for this portent:
Ranyik Rwahnna Rovikya V
2:2:4:7/5, III:IX
The portent attributed here has not yet been interpreted. It was said recently, and it will be repeated every twenty days until either it is correctly interpreted, or it comes to pass.
