In the novel Broken, there are 24 portents fortelling the events of the unfolding saga.

Start with Portent I here.

These and other riddles in rhyme are gathered in the Portents Directory for you to explore.


The voice impugned for ilk and ire
His word egregious sin
Returns adjured to lowly gyre
And rallies furloughed kin

The shiftless rouse themselves in hate
To death or freedom win
While timeless rigors dissipate
And usher chaos in.

Can you decode the future Tales of the Known World?

Comment below with your take on this portent.

Though this prophesy opens only one scene in Broken, it has a fun rhyme scheme and ominous clues about the unfolding of Book 4. Who do you think is the voice impugned, and for what purpose does he rally his furloughed kin?

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:
Wahni Vendohn Dohari VIII
2:3:4:7/5, 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.
