Day of Nature's Return
When the sun goes black, plants and animals will leave the forests. Scared people will run, but they will be ripped by angry wolves. By the time the sun comes back, all Humans and Elves will be dead and nature will have won.
The Anti-industrial Movement belives that the day when nature takes the world back is close. They call it the Day of Nature's Return. However, they don't want to stop it. Instead, they want to destroy industry and technology so animals won't see Humans and Elves as enemies.
Very few scholars investigate the prophecy. The few of them who do, theorize that the myth has its origin in what was happening during eclipses of the sun. During it, something drove the animals wild and fastened the growth of plants. The theory sounds probable, but it is impossible to proof. Since the Falling there have been no solar eclipses in Veneficia. That strange phenomena has been puzzling the astronomers for many years. Veneficia has a moon and theoretically there should be solar eclipses. However, for some mysterious reason, they don't happen.
The prophecy's exact point of origin is unknown. It is well-known throughout the world, but most people don't believe in it. According to them, it is just an old wives' tale from long ago. Talking about it in public is viewed by most people as a sign of madness and such people are avoided.
"The end is nigh! When the sun goes black, plants and animals will leave the forests..."
"Just stop, you madman!"
"You won't silence me!"
Today, the prophecy isn't displayed in art. However, it wasn't always the case. In the ruins from the Ancient Era, before the Falling, images of wolves attacking people can be found. Some of them also show trees and other plants going inside the cities and covering the houses.
