最近,边关村的宁静田园生活被一个当地专家无法解释的气象现象打破了。在一个寻常的日子里,小村庄的天空忽然变暗,燃烧的狗从天上倾盘而降。

据证人所说,残杀场面惨不忍睹。烧焦的狗尸遍布村庄,单是其气味已足以把居民驱赶回家中。当问及这起事件时,当地的法师及气象专家Castus Philidus如是说:

“这是在晨曦大陆历史上毫无先例的。虽然有着昆虫、青蛙还有偶尔的奇怪法师坠落尘土的故事,我从未碰过燃烧的狗从天上洒落的传说。可能这些狗是某个法师召唤失败的实验,又或许是这些狗被飓风卷至天上。这也许可以解释为什么狗会落到不幸的边关村社区。当然,这还不能说明为什么它们会着火。”

在专家似乎困惑的同时,边关村的居民只有一个解释。

“这是世界末日!”一个要求隐去姓名的居民说,“K’Sharra预言告诉我们这会发生!老鼠!绵羊!我们都被诅咒了!诅咒!”

预言?法师?异常的天气现象?我们无从得知。而边关村定然不再会像以前一样。

SPECIAL EDITION!
RAIN OF BURNING DOGS!
Experts Bewildered!
The quiet life of the idyllic Border Watch community was shattered recently by a meteorological phenomenon local experts are unable to explain. On an otherwise normal day, the skies above the small village suddenly darkened, and burning dogs rained down from the heavens.
The carnage was terrible, according to witnesses. Charred dog carcasses littered the village, and the smell alone was enough to drive many residents into their homes. When asked about the event, local mage and weather expert Castus Philidus had this to say:
"There seems to be no precedent for this in all of Tamrielic history. While there have been stories of insects, frogs, and the occasional wayward mage crashing to the earth, I've never encountered tales of burning dogs raining from the skies. It is possible that the dogs were the part of some mage's experiments with summoning gone bad, or perhaps the dogs were swept up in a great wind and hurled into the sky. This might explain the dogs falling onto the unfortunate Border Watch community. Of course, that still doesn't explain why they were on fire."
While the experts seem puzzled, the residents of Border Watch see only one explanation.
"It is the end of the world!" said one resident, who asked not to be named in this article. "The K'Sharra Prophecy tells us that this will happen! The rats! The sheep! We are all doomed! Doomed!"
Prophecy? Mages? Freak weather occurrence? We may never know. And the small village of Border Watch will definitely never be the same.
Note: The "occasional wayward mage crashing to the earth" probably refers to Tarhiel, who, in Morrowind (just north of Seyda Neen) falls from the sky to his death. Upon examination, his corpse contains "Scrolls of Icarian Flight" which are of little more use than the fun of jumping great distance to your almost inevitable death.
