亚历德善意与傲慢的结合才是造成许多旧日腹地精灵毁灭性事件的元凶,我绝不是第一个指出这一观点的学者。

内法利维甘,莫拉恩斯·达根的邪恶创造,树立本身就是意欲监视接近它的朝拜者,并对朝拜者进行一项不知名的试炼以判断其价值。据说通过试炼的朝拜者会获得莫拉恩斯剃刀祝福作为奖赏,这是一把邪恶刃物,由其斩击,达根本人便能摄取刺中之人灵魂。

善意迫使亚历德人前去寻找内法利维甘。而傲慢则让他们相信单凭自己便可胜任赶走任何前来寻找剃刀之人任务。因此,他们在亚历德统治巅峰时期修建了瓦萨巴林,一座宏伟的环形迷宫之城。

诚然,多年来就算朝拜者来到瓦萨巴林,精灵们也能令其无功而返,直到一只吸血鬼悄悄溜进城市。莫们开始被丑恶痛苦侵扰,城市陷入了疯狂与毁灭的风暴之中,不久之后,似乎再也无人能够阻止剃刀重现于世。

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.
