The Harrowing Myth in Ethnis | World Anvil

The Harrowing

The Harrowing is a Prophecy and a Promise.

After Lun-Kheren lost many friends and children in a phyrric victory against the first tyrant, Kyzan, he screamed it the to the sky. At his coronation, the crowds shouted it back. It is carved into the armrests of the Four Sovereign Thrones.

Monoliths cannot be the only form of rule.

When Ultan Alephus Ashiman, made the Nictipagua, he tattoed the words onto their flesh, hardcoded the words into their minds, and etched them into every tool in their armory.


It is a reminder that the Monoliths can be killed. That the Meta can be snuffed out.
