【书籍搬运】Treatise on Ayleidic Cities Ayleidic城市考究

Recommended Posts








而后,很突然地,瓦萨巴林消失了。史料争议很多,是最终的防护举措失效,还是自然灾难爆发,亦或是直接的神力干涉,尚且没有定论。不管原因为何,各类史料都统一声称,第一纪元初期以降,东尼本的群山便吞噬了瓦萨巴林以及其内的内法利维甘,直至现在。 如果这个故事是为真,那么在尼本河谷东缘某处人类统治经年不曾触及的地方,在埋葬于群山深处遍布不死异形的城市中,内法利维甘依旧在等待着。

Chapter the Tenth
Varsa Baalim and the Nefarivigum
Test of Dagon
The history of Varsa Baalim and Mehrunes' Razor

I will not be the first scholar to point to a combination of benign intent and arrogance on behalf of the Ayleids as the source of many ruinous affairs for the old heartland elves.
The Nefarivigum, a foul construct of Mehrunes Dagon, was erected to be ever watchful for the pilgrim who would approach it and best an unknown trial of worth. It is said that such a pilgrim would be rewarded with the blessing of Mehrunes Razor, a vicious blade through which Dagon himself can claim the very souls of those it strikes.
Benign intent compelled Ayleid folk to seek out the Nefarivigum. Arrogance let them believe themselves capable of disbarring any who would seek the Razor. So was built Varsa Baalim, a great, ringed, labyrinthine city, during the height of Ayleid rule.
Sure as death, pilgrims came to Varsa Baalim, and for years the Elves drove back many, until it came to pass that a vampire slipped into the city unnoticed. Merfolk were touched with the foul affliction, throwing the city into a gathering storm of madness and ruin, and soon it seemed none was left to prevent the Razor from being recovered.
Then, suddenly, Varsa Baalim was gone. Historic accounts dispute whether it happened through some final safety, a natural cataclysm, or by the touch of the Divines themselves. Whatever the cause, history agrees on the result: the mountains of the EasternNiben swallowed Varsa Baalim, and the Nefarivigum with it, where has remained hidden since the early days of the First Era.
If the tale is true, then somewhere on the eastern fringes of the Niben Valley, where man's rule has scarcely reached through the years, the Nefarivigum still lies in wait, among a city of unliving abominations entombed within the cold bowels of the mountain.
