Log in

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.


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.


I may be a 'saint', but I make no pretensions to holiness. There's a difference between divine and forgiven, after all.

As for the Rift...

I haven't changed. Not one bit. I had a gift, but I lost it quite a while ago. There's nothing an ordinary man can really do, bound as he is by so many limitations, not to more than just his immediate acquaintances. And...it isn't enough to save the world one policy at a time.

I appreciate your generosity towards all the newcomers, but I'm afraid I can't see your message as anything more than that. I kinda wish I could.
The Rift changes everyone. I've yet to encounter an exception. However, the changes aren't always immediately evident. You may not be in a position to believe this yet, but I have every confidence that, eventually, you'll discover exactly what it's given you.

Likewise, although it's difficult to come to terms with being seemingly ordinary after having had abilities most humans don't... One word at the right time can change a world. Everything's ripples in the pond.

But I'm not looking for blind faith, or unthinking conversion, and polite, honest dissent is more valuable to me than either.

Thank you for saying your piece, and I'm always happy to speak further with you, if you'd like.
Been here a little over two months. Nothing yet. With respect, I'm not sure the Rift could do anything to me at this point.

I've been telling myself. I left a lot behind in my home dimension, though I don't think it'll miss me much.

I don't agree with everything stated above, but you seem to understand the mechanics here, and that's more than I can say for the few people I've run into, pleasant as they are.
