His luminous red sword swings, cleaving a Shadow in twain. But a greater darkness rises and stretches its wings. A small girl, trembling on the ground beside him, shrieks. The man whirls - but a hand coalesces from the night, and stabs into his chest. The girl scrambles away. As the man falls to his knees, the vision fades, leaving an echo of laughter in your mind.

A shrieking, squealing noise fills your mind, pulsating with hatred. You find yourself standing on an unfamiliar shore. It is a blood-red dawn; the sort Viamont mariners say presage storms. A ripping noise rises, growing until it shakes the air around you. Birds cry, starting from the trees in terror. You raise your eyes to the horizon. Just above the green-blue sea, a black speck crosses the sun, trailing a great tongue of flame.
You seem to hear unintelligible words as the Umbris falls... only the word "Daralet" is distinguishable.
