The Age of Worms
- This image begins as an idyllic country scene. Several tall, pale, statuesque, androgynous beings draped in white togas and robes recline peacefully in an endless field of blue–tinged grass. Dozens of perfect circles, each a different color, fill the sky overhead. Soon, however, dark figures emerge from the edges of the mural: monstrous creatures that look like a cross between spiders and wolves. As the creatures approach the reclining vaati, the circles in the sky burst one by one.
- This image depicts a towering vaati figure wearing the glyph of the Wandering Duke Icosiol standing over a legion of lesser Wind Duke warriors. Front and center of the vast legion is a warrior bearing the glyph of Zosiel. In other positions of prominence are the other six Wandering Dukes: Amophar, Darbos, Emoniel, Penader, Qadeej, and Uriel. The gathered warriors each raise two longswords over their head and clash them together in an obvious salute. (The names/glyphs, and the significance of the seven noted as the “Wandering Dukes,” can only be read by Riddle)
- This image shows the seven proud Wandering Dukes presenting a staff–like rod to a council of leading vaati. The staff soars into the air, spins once and then splits into seven irregular parts.
- This image shows an endless field of horrific battle, perfect vaati battling multi–limbed, cobbled–together horrors as far as the eye can see. At the center of the image, the Wandering Duke Qadeej uses the staff/rod to impale a towering demonic entity with a spider’s body, a humanoid torso, four arms and three heads: a human head flanked by two wolf heads. The demon, the vaati and the rod vanish into a cataclysmic planar rift as, off to the side of the mural, Icosiol is struck by a final beam shot from one of the wolf–spider’s eyes. Icosiol slumps dead to the ground.
