The Epitaph of Twilight

The epic online poem written by Emma Wielant. It told the story of a battle between Good and Evil, and all those in between. It was the inspiration for Harald Hoerwick's creation of the online game The World

[edit] The Poem

Emma Wielant was in a tragic accident before being able to finish the poem itself and the only copy was taken off her website at the time of her death. There are various copies made by Wielant's fans, but its not known if any are 100% correct. The only true copy was keep by Harald Hoerwick, but even his version is not complete.

Yet to return, the shadowed one.
Who quests for the Twilight Dragon
Rumbles the Dark Hearth,
And Helba, Queen of the Dark,
has finally raised her army.
Apeiron, King of Light beckons.
At the base of the rainbow they meet
Against the abominable Wave,
together they fight.
Alba's lake boils.
Light's great tree doth fall.
Power- now all to droplets turned
in the temple of Arche Koeln.
Returns to nothing,
this world of shadowless ones.
Never to return, the shadowless one,
Who quests for the Twilight Dragon.


Harald Hoerwick states that there are many missing parts floating throughout the internet with portions of the unfinished Epitaph. In the game they are found as Fragments or some are labled. It seemes as though the seams between the parts were lost forever.

[edit] Insert labeled "Welle"

Riding the Wave is Skeith, the Shadow of Death, to drown all that stands.
Mirage of Deceit, Innis, Betray all with the flawed image, and did aid the Wave.
And by the Power of Magus, a drop from the Wave doth reach the heavens, and creates a new Wave.
With the Wave, Fidchell, the power to tell the dark future, hope darkens, sadness and despair rule.
Gorre schemes when swallowed by the Cursed Wave.
Macha seduces with the sweet trap.
Wave reaches the Pinnacle, and escape none can.
Tarvos still remains with more cruelty to punish and destroy.
And with the turbulent destruction after the Wave.
Only a void remains.
From deep within the void arrives Corbenik.

The seven parts of Morganna's Wave are all represented with the exception of Corbenik which was only mentioned at the end
