Tmu'uz, Prophet of the Obsidian Nest

By:

"Descending from above/
Hidden now until/
The sun sets for the last time."
-Tales of the Ingushey Speaker

In the inky depths of the Black Swamps of Nrachu, there is hidden a being of such strangeness that it is named only Tmu’uz- "the Strangest"- and one other name: the Prophet of the Obsidian Nest.

The ancient folk of that region, the Shlannu, tell the tale that the Prophet came many years ago (in the year recorded in their priests’ Calendar of Five Stones as 9.6.0.0.1; the Shlannu keep their years in numbers rather than ecumenical names), descending into the depths of the swamp with a great boom and turning the night to flashing day for a brief moment; the Prophet dropped as a star from the heavens.

Shlannu legends speak further of the Prophet’s nature, but only in passing. The Shlannu will never discuss the Prophet for any length of time, with outsiders, as they have an irrational fear, that the Prophet hears everything said about him anywhere in the world.

It is rumoured by sages who dare to delve into such matters, that Tmu’uz is a harbinger of the world’s end, and that the ‘Nested One’ is bidng his time, awaiting the the proper alignment in the heavens.

If questioned further, these speculative sages and doomsayers can be seen to be grasping at convoluted theories and erroneous assumptions.

Tmu’uz is an entity from another world, a bizarre creature, which belongs to some slumbering pantheon of horrors.

The Obsidian Nest, is in actually obsidian, and so many of the egg’s shards fell from the sky when the "Strangest" descended in his black cocoon.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
