Last Keep Murals
Statues displayed in the Last Keep, their meaning indecipherable. Local scholar offered a number of ideas:
- The murals are allegorical.
- The murals represent the End of Days as the Founder believed it would pass (in his madness).
- Murals are nonlinear and cyclical, as though there is some subtle hint in them we cannot yet glean.
- Vandals rearranged the Founder's original structure, and that is why the true meaning is unclear.
- Menaster Caermyn owned a volume of engravings that depicted the Keep as it appeared two hundred years ago, perhaps more... during the War of Succession.
EXHIBIT A : THE FIELD OF WOE :
Tattered banners, dying kings, unknown foes, warriors choking on their own warcries, riders, butchery, bloodsoaked grass, final defeat.
EXHIBIT B : THE LEAGUER OF BEASTS :
Monsters of indecipherable and changing nature, marching under a setting sun.
EXHIBIT C : THE SUBLIME ASCENT :
A figure emerging from a cave, beneath the sun and mist.
EXHIBIT D : THE CONVOCATION OF GALLANTS :
Many men awakening from a long slumber, they struggle to defend Mistlocke, but then leave to venture to a round table upon the Prophet's Peaks. Here, a man in ancient ringmail seems to wear a crown, a hunchback - a robe of stars, and another man in old Netherese plate... who has no face, a mirrorlike face...
EXHIBIT E : THE AGONY OF WIDOWS :
Women shrieking and wailing. After a new star appears, they cannot bear children. No one can find a solution. The men of Mistlocke leave to fight an unstated foe, and the weeping women throw their still-living children from the walls of the Last Keep.
