Through thick and thin the errant voice
Explores the light of day
While tried and true unerrant go
With fortunes shut away

In dire need the prince absolved
Collects his souls astray
Extending oath of ghostly crown
To all who join the fray.

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:
Randohk Jihwonni Dohari XV
3:1:4:6/5, 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.
