Cabal

January 27

1. You open your eyes and see four black-masked figures completely cloaked in darkness. A glittering, blue sphere is held on a pillow by a fifth which approaches quickly. The procession walks down a black-stoned hallway to a door flanked by two more of the black figures. You can hear the mumblings of magic, but too faint to make out much else. The doors are opened and the procession hurries inside, placing the pillow upon a silver pedestal in the center of the otherwise bare room. The five then exit the room and shut the door, leaving the sphere within.

2. As your eyes open, you see a tall, regal dragonborn before you. She bears a staff with a crescent moon on the top of it and is draped in white robes. Her platinum scales shimmer in the light and small birds flutter around her head and shoulders. A silver blade is strapped around her hips. She lifts a cold, blue sphere into the air and places it on a granite altar. Across from her is a fully armored man wearing a silver sallet with two wings jutting from the sides. He has a cape of velvet blue with a golden spiral moving to the right. In his hands is a longsword with golden handle and a sapphire in the hilt. As one, the two figures lift their blades and bring them crashing down on the sphere. An explosion of white clouds your vision.

3. Heavy incense and smoke fills the air. A wide, circular table is surrounded by shrouded men. Each wears a simple golden mask and there is little light to identify them by. Walking around the table are white-skinned men that move in silence and with a supernatural grace. A woman in a white dress sits in the center of the table with a blue orb in her lap. Each of the masked men is taking turns pounding gold coins onto the table and shouting bids for the object. She looks up and smiles at you, revealing long, sharpened canines.

Your vision clears and you see a small army of figures in red armor engraved with flames wearing helmets that look like fire is growing from their skulls. A man with fiery red eyes stands among them wearing a long, red cloak. A blue orb is held in his hands and he is laughing. You can see white and blue swirling inside the orb, but it slowly blackens and becomes mixed with red and orange. Suddenly the sphere bursts outward and chilling, black flame floods the area. You see it flood across the city, freezing and burning everything in its path.

Your eyes open and you look up onto a high platform. Four figures in white robes are standing before a slowly rotating, circular stone with a hole in the middle. White, powdery snow is falling everywhere at a steady rate. The lead figure in white holds up a glistening blue bauble which begins to glow with strong white light. The ring stops rotating and begins to crack, shattering into a million pieces. A bright white light clouds your vision.
