the chosen prophet

[Multiple Locks]

[Locked to Wanderers]

You don't know me, and you have no reason to believe me. I'm just one man, with my beliefs and a few like-minded individuals, but this is something which concerns you all. It's my earnest hope that you'll give me a few minutes of your time, to read my words and to consider them.

Listen:

This was not an accident. Your presence here, the gifts you've received... None of these happened by chance.

Every universe that ever was or could be is affected by the Rift. From every possible world, you've been brought, and you've been changed. I believe there is a consciousness in the Rift, a purpose, and each and every one of you has a part to play in that grand design.

Look at the gifts you've been given, the abilities you never had before. Look around at those who have come with you, the warriors and healers and men of wisdom. How can you think this was an accident?

You were chosen. You are special. You are holy. You belong here.

You are the hope of this world. I most sincerely believe that.

As for myself... I have a deeper understanding of the Rift than most, but other than that, what matters is the message, not the messenger. I'm here to act as a guide, to help where I can.

To that end, I and several others have established another shelter for all those that have come through the Rift, independent of political affiliation, outside the wars of angels and demons. We offer shelter, food, and clothing for those who need it.

I don't ask for your belief -- only those who lack conviction in their own creed make aid contingent on acceptance of it. All I ask is that you listen, consider my words, and do as your heart dictates. We want nothing more than to help you, and to guide you, but it's not my place to force either upon you.

If you have need, or even if you're merely curious, you're welcome to visit us.

It seems I've arrived.

You've done quite well for yourself here, you know.

Comments

[Locked]

I'd be happy to give you more information on us, either in person or via a locked journal post. What I know is a bit much to leave in a comment here, I'm afraid, but let me know which you'd prefer.

As far as what I know, I'm afraid I do have an advantage, there. A friend of mine receives visions related to Riftcomers. Although not often terribly specific, they do give us some idea of what's been happening.

I'm flattered to be compared to Elashte. Although I try and keep from involving myself directly in the politics of angels and demons, Elashte is a rare example of his kind, and I've been following his work with some interest. It's immensely refreshing to find a demon as reasonable as he is. He is, perhaps, the only demon I can consider a friend.

Real change will take time -- I honestly don't expect to see our goals reached in my lifetime. Whatever purpose the Rift has, it's something I won't be here to see fulfilled, and what's more, to attempt to guide people too forcibly will go against everything I'm trying to build. Giving the Riftcomers a place and a voice, though... That's a first step. The very presence of the Riftcomers has helped to bridge the gap, already.

And please, you shouldn't feel the need to apologise for the Doctor and Des. They have every right to their scepticism, and at least their responses show that they've given what I have to say even the smallest amount of consideration.

Better honest dissent than silence.
