PostPosted: Thu Mar 11, 2010 5:51 am    Post subject: Book of Moesha, chapter 39 Reply with quote

And the people were pursued by the princes of Thorein.  Moesha lead them to the banks of the river Arden, and there was no way for the people to cross, for the waters were flowing rapidly. Moesha told the priests to lead the people north unto the fords of Arden. But Moesha and his sons left the people and begin to climb the lesser Breast of Arden. As the people came to the ford, they looked up to the mountains. There stood Moesha, with his hands raised beseeching Adoni to save the people.

Adoni caused a great wind to blow, and the waters of Arden parted. Where upon the people began to cross. Throughout the day Moesha stood upon the mount, though all his sons, save his eldest, returned to the people. As the sun began to set, the sons of Moesha crossed the river. But his eldest son Mecham, who remained with his father, supported his father's arms in supplication to Adoni. As Moesha sons reached the West Bank, the army of Hirashem, the Thorein, reached the fords. And they began to pursue the people.

Then Hirashem  and his priests came to the fords, and they began to cross. The people of Arden fought the army of Hirashem and tried to deny sevants of the magicians the West Bank. But as the magicians reached the middle of the River Arden, Moesha lowered his arms and the waters of the River Arden began to flow again. Having been held at bay throughout the day, the waters of the Arden could not be stopped, and the Princes of Thorein were destroyed.

And the people never saw Moesha, or his son, again.

PostPosted: Thu Mar 11, 2010 5:53 am    Post subject: Tale of Haman Reply with quote

And so the treachery of Haman was revealed, and Haman was afraid. So Haman gather his wives, his children, his man servants, and his maid servants and crossed the Arden river, seeking sanctuary from his Thorein masters. And when Haman reached the princes of Thoria, they rebuked him, for he had failed to deliver Arden and the Elves into their hands. So they set upon Haman and many were slaughtered as they fled.

But Haman, and many of those who had supported Haman, survived. And they fled into the hills above the Arden river, and yet the forces of Thoria pursued them. So they ran further and eventually began to climb the greater Breast of Arden, and upon the top the Breast of Arden they were able to defend themselves, as the ways to the top of the greater Breast are steep and narrow. There Haman and his family thought themselves safe.

But Haman had earned the wrath of Adoni and all peoples. And when it was known that Haman still lived, the priests of Arden called for the wrath of Adoni to strike Haman, and the Elves use their powers, and the Mages of Thoria used their dark arts, and the greater Breast of Arden was split asunder. The top of the greater Breast of Arden, and all who dwelt there were destroyed.

PostPosted: Wed Jul 11, 2012 1:57 pm    Post subject: The Tale of Jebadiah and Hildebrandt Reply with quote

Haman’s designs for the destruction of the Elves depended upon his brother Jebadiah, for it was Jebadiah whom the
Elves loved. It was he who long lay in their consuls and had learnt the ways of power. And though Jebadiah was held in
high regard by the Elves, even more in their grace was the woman Hildebrandt. Upon her, the betrothed of Jebadiah, did
the Elves bestow the greatest secrets of their Magick.
But Haman was able to tempt his brother to the ways of the Thoriens and their promise of immortal life. In his
wickedness, Jebadiah deceived Hildebrant, and from her discovered the secrets of Elven magic. Jebadiah then arose from
his home by the River Arden and went to the land of the Thoriens. Therein did he practice the dark arts and removed the
powers of the Elves. He then returned to his brother and both reveled in the deed they had wrought. And then did
Haman send his brother to destroy the Elves with the Armies of Thoria. And even the Ardons who tried to stand before
him were destroyed.
And Hildebrandt and Tarn went to her betrothed and tried to dissuade him from his course, but naught came from their
meeting.
Soon after Jebadiah turn his army northward and followed the ruse which the Ardons had set for him. Unknown to
Jebadiah was that the magick of the Elves had been restored. And when he stood on the field of battle he was
surrounded by his enemies, the Elves, the Dwarves, and the Ardons. And from the south cameth the Archeons. The
Armies of Thoria were destroyed, but Jebadiah escaped and returned to the haven of his brother.
“Brother, what have you done?” cried Haman, “The wrath of Thoria will be upon us!”
And Jebadiah replied, “It is true what you say brother. I have lost all for us. So we must hide ourselves.”
And to Aritrea did they go.
Another version of this tale has been discovered at Sturgis (now called Reyes) castle recently. In
addition to significant differences in this story, other information in this book would shake the very
foundations of modern Judaism in Arden should it become common knowledge.
