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

It's a dangerous thing to feed a man stories of his own holiness.

I commend your faith -- it seems to be in short supply these days -- but my own tells me I'm no more holy than any other man, and less so than most of them.

I'll leave the hostility to those who are better at it, but I am concerned.
I understand your concern, Shepherd. But I want to make it clear that I'm not interested in exalting Riftcomers as some sort of master race. But there is a purpose to your presence here, that much I'm sure of. And amidst all the voices that say that Riftcomers are inconveniences, charity cases, or pawns, there should be one that says that you're special, that you're capable of changing the world, and what's more, that you already have.

I have no master plan of my own, Shepherd. Merely the need to see the Rift's will done, and to try and make this world a little better. Changes will come with or without my interference, or belief in my message, but I'd like to see those changes come with a little less pain for all involved.

We're not so different, you and I, for all that we give reverence to different names.
