Patterns in the Snow
The lands here in the north are bitter and bleak. Few footprints mar the heavy snows and the ice wreathed peaks are devoid of life. But it was not always so. For the Aëdr were here once, many millennia ago.
They came with one purpose. A mission to reverse their most terrible mistake, the dread folly that threatened to unravel the very structure of the universe.
So it was here, amidst the frozen mountains, that they toiled, raising the looming Symmetron pillar that still towers over the surrounding peaks. Their great work took many years and the land is scattered with the detritus of their habitation. Support structures, headquarters, storage facilities and dwellings all lie beneath a pall of snow and ages.
Yet here there also stand structures that defy comprehension. Intricate arcane constructs of unknown purpose, and grand statues that have watched over the chill landscape for thousands of years.
Why does the strange architecture built into the mountains so perfectly reflect the distant stars above? What purpose did they serve in the forgotten past, or what message do they hold for those who stare with puzzled eyes upon them now?
What else did the ancient Aëdr know that has been lost to the aeons? What fell secret did they carve into the mountains for generations to come?
Soon past and future will collide with deadly force. Here, within The Thunderstone Geometries.
