Every Artemis player knows the Kraliens are religious. The canon says they believe in an ancient race of Gods who millennia ago taught the Kraliens everything from basic hygiene to electronic technology. When the Kralien Gods departed they left behind plenty of evidence that they really did exist. Occasionally someone discovers an artifact or relic showing that the Gods possessed mysterious super technology beyond anything else in the known universe.
The Kralien population includes special individuals who serve as prophets of the Gods. In recent centuries these prophets have written many texts which the Kraliens consider sacred. It is one of these texts, the Holy Scroll of Ambobrax, that says the Gods gave the Kraliens ownership of the galaxy and that every non-Kralien should pay rent for the privileged of living here.
Another the other texts is the mysterious Prophecy of Zuqonok. It is written in a Quintain, the most sacred of Kralien poetic forms. Even the Kraliens are not certain what the Prophecy of Zuqonok means. Nevertheless, I promise you that The Prophecy of Zuqonok will soon play a roll that will shake up the canonical universe. An adventure at Artemis Armada V may hinge on it.
For scholars who wish to study this sacred document, I now present the TSN's first official translation.
PROPHECY OF ZUQONOK
Concealed by gods, one gift greatest of many gifts
Somewhere in space owned by Kraliens
Sleeps long with blessings of eternal success!
Be always alert for a day named Zuqonok
That day’s number cannot be foretold
Castle shimmers in golden mist
Within, holy egg hatches
Blessed with two heads
Knowing caused by first
Deciding caused by second
Holy child’s first breath - Zuqonok!
Now holy mission begins!
Now strongest ships are built
Now strongest captains on strongest bridges
Quest for one gift, greatest of many gifts
Gods gave commands to Kraliens:
Scan the borrowed home of many tenants
One gift greatest of many gifts is not for them
Heretics interfere with delays
Deliver heretics to their afterlife
Kraliens will find many gifts
How shall Kraliens know one greatest gift?
Strong foot writes faithful story
Inside weak heretic’s jacket
One name of money they love
