Radrion: Prophet of Life!
And so the sage said unto thee, 'If thou can solve my rhyme, // you'll learn of marks & playing cards & hidden holy shrines.
Shrines there are again but 4 to which you go and pray. // their uses are innumerable and clues throughout I say.
To aid thee in thy cryptic search, to dungeons thou must fare. // There seek out the Lord of Time to help you if he cares.'
Of Marks I say there are but 4 of fire, force, snake & king. // Learn their use in Devil Guard, or death you'll surely bring.
The cards their suits do number 4, called Sol, Moon, Death and Love. // Unto the Montors thou must go for guidance from above.
