Misguided roams the winding way
From lowest vale to coral heights
In exiled shadow voice invites
The prince to join the fray

Dissensions thick arise in droves
To cloud the eyes of prince's wake
As land prepares for battle's quake
And sea its timeless troves

In bonded oath does prince await
Immersed in time's enraptured thrall
By will incited bitter squall
The vacant voice and gate.

This prophesy comes to pass in Part 4 of Broken, and it foretells the long journey a prince must undertake. What do you think the sea's timeless troves are, and what is this prince's bonded oath?

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:
Jyonge Nlovahs Dynde VII
2:3:1:7/5, 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.
