The Hands that Move the World
The Draconic Prophecy is both a record of past events and a set of portents for things to come. Fragments of the prophecy may be written in everything from the stars, to rocks, to physical writing found in caves, down to dragonmarks, the living manifestations of the Prophecy. It is also notable for not being a linear prophecy – the Draconic Prophecy is more of a probability map, showing events that will occur under the right conditions.
Despite its name, the Prophecy not an invention of the dragons. Instead, the highly complex and varied nature of the Prophecy requires a very long lifespan to study it, which dragons are fortunate enough to possess. The study of the Prophecy is a major occupation for the dragons of Argonnessen.
