2eFR<Giantcraft.p045>暮光精魂The Twilight Spirit

暮光精魂The Twilight Spirit

  暮光谷Twilight's Vale 是片坐落于 寒冰尖顶the Ice Spires 的北部的贫瘠山谷。在上古 奥斯托利亚王国Ostoria 的时代,安南Annam 诸子将它作为会面之地,因此,长久以来 高山族裔the Jotunbrud 一直将这片谷地视作圣地。直至今日,尖顶的巨人们仍在积极地守卫着它的山谷、抵御闯入者与入侵者。
Twilight's Vale is a barren valley located on the northern fringe of the Ice Spires. Because it was used as a meeting place by Annam's sons in the time of ancient Ostoria, the Jotunbrud have long considered the Vale sacred ground. To this day, the giants of the Spires actively defend its valley against interlopers and trespassers.

  数世纪前,所有居住在农场上的巨人们都开始聆听到一个神秘的声音,这个声音甚至时至今日仍在偶尔引领他们在这片谷地聚集。在那里,他们得了来自一位笼罩在阴影中的巨人的劝告,巨人们称它为 暮光精魂The Twilight Spirit。暮光精魂声称自己是安南意志的真正先知。在被其吸引为其服务的高山族裔的帮助下,它计划让巨人国王的预言与奥斯托利亚王国的复兴得以应验。为完成这些目标,暮光精魂有时会策划精细的方案,为奥斯托利亚王国的复兴构建基础。举个例子,几年前(双子战争the War of the Twins 期间),精魂指示一伙巨人去雇佣一支食人魔部落来帮助 卡姆登国王King Camden 击败他的兄弟 邓斯坦Dunstan。作为他们所提供帮助的交换,卡姆登承诺将他的长女(一份精魂吩咐他的仆人们带回给他他的赠礼)交给食人魔们。至于精魂到底为什么想要卡姆登的女儿,仍然是个秘密。
Centuries ago, giants all over the steadings began to hear a mysterious voice that even today occasionally directs them to assemble in the Vale. There, they receive counsel from a giant cloaked in shadow the giants came to call the Twilight Spirit. The Spirit claims to be a prophet of the true will of Annam. With the aid of the Jotunbrud it has attracted into its service, the Spirit aims to see the prophecy of the giant king and the return of Ostoria fulfilled. To accomplish these aims, the Spirit sometimes hatches elaborate schemes meant to establish the groundwork for Ostoria's return. Several years ago (during the War of the Twins), for instance, the Spirit directed a group of giants to engage a tribe of ogres to help King Camden defeat his brother Dunstan. In exchange for their help, Camden promised the ogres his firstborn daughter, a boon that the Spirit has directed his servants to deliver to him. Exactly what the Spirit wants with Camden's daughter is still something of a mystery.

  虽然并非所有的高山族裔都乐意接受暮光精魂的言辞(事实上,目前 风暴族裔the stormazîn 是精魂和教诲口头上的反对者),但精魂的存在以一种新鲜的使命感、无疑地激励了它的巨人们。高山族裔千万年来第一次相信,奥斯托利亚王国的重生就在他们的掌握之中。
Although not all the Jotunbrud are willing to accept the Twilight Spirit at its word (in fact, the current stormazîn is a vocal opponent of the Spirit and its teachings), the Spirit's presence has unquestionably invigorated the giants of the Spires with a new sense of purpose. For the first time in eons, the Jotunbrud believe the rebirth of Ostoria is within their grasp.

遗赠兆示Legacy Omens

  自 雄鹿杀手Hartkiller 陨落以来,无法解释的巧合与奇怪的现象一直折磨着寒冰尖顶附近的巨人社会。幽灵般的怪影、无人书写的信息、忽现忽闪的物件、怪异的气象模式,所有这些情况都在农场里和农场周边有所报告。大部分巨人将这些奇怪事件视为预示着巨人国王的归来、预言了哈特齐尔的苏醒的兆示。依据那些围绕着现象兴起的传说,每一个新兆示意味着这位国王进入物质世界的又一次失败尝试。事实上,这些尝试本身开始显露于现实,就象征着这位国王业已接近成功。信徒们说,在不久后的某一天,他(或她)将显现、达成这个年代久远的预言。
Ever since Hartkiller died, the giant communities located near the Ice Spires have been plagued by inexplicable coincidences and strange phenomena. Ghostly apparitions, messages written by no one, items appearing and disappearing, and bizarre weather patterns have all been reported in and around the steadings. Most giants see these strange occurrences as omens foreshadowing the coming of the giant king that was prophesied in Hartkiller's wake. According to the lore that has grown up around the phenomena, each new omen signifies another of the king's failed attempts to enter the physical world. The fact that these attempts are beginning to manifest themselves in reality signify that the king is nearing freedom. One day soon, say the faithful, he (or she) will emerge to fulfill the age-old prophecies.

  当然,并不是每个人都完全同意这种示象出现的原因。一些更偏执的巨人坚持认为这些“兆示”与哈特齐尔的遗赠不存在任何形式联系。与之相反,这些反叛者相信鬼影与怪象,都是那些想要毁灭各农场的不死军团的“侦查攻击”。有些家伙甚至试图将这个威胁与虚构的 亚巨人verbeeg 暴动联系起来、来迅速动摇暮光精魂。反叛者们提出的一些更可笑的新论据,令个别更杰出的巨人开始怀疑他们在实施某种形式的阴谋。确切地说,反叛者们希望借他们的滑稽行为获得什么,仍然是个迷。
Of course, not everyone is in complete agreement as to the cause of the manifestations. A few of the more paranoid giants insist that the "omens" are not linked with Hartkiller's legacy in any way. Instead, these renegades believe that the apparitions and odd occurrences are “scouting attacks” undertaken by an army of undead who hope to destroy the steadings. Some have even tried to link this threat with the fabled verbeeg uprising rumored to soon rock the Spires. So ridiculous are some of the latest arguments offered by the renegades that a few of the more prominent giants are beginning to suspect them of implementing some sort of plot. Exactly what the renegades might hope to gain by their antics remains a mystery.

  近年来,古怪的兆示在暮光谷附近变得尤其普遍。谷地的访问者频繁地被古怪的鬼影和神秘的声音折磨。虽然这些声音中的一些无疑是暮光精魂自己发出的,但其他声音的起源更值得怀疑。在谷地无情的山谷中,不止一位巨人已被逼疯。
In recent years, the strange omens have become particularly common near Twilight Vale. Visitors to the Vale are frequently plagued by strange apparitions and mysterious voices. Although some of these voices undoubtedly issue forth from the Twilight Spirit himself, others are of more questionable origin. More than one giant has been driven to madness in the Vale's unforgiving valley.

祭职人员的职责Duties of the Priesthood

  暮光精魂的皈依者们,并非是 高级龙与地下城AD&D 游戏中的祭司严格意义上的同类。他们没有组织,没有神殿,也没有有序的等级制度。与之相反,他们是流浪的先知,在诸农场漫游散播精魂的教诲、招徕高山族裔的援助贯彻精魂的计划。事实上,某些精魂的皈依者也是另一位神祇的祭司。
Devotees of the Twilight Spirit aren't exact analogs for the priests of the AD&D game. They hold no organized services, maintain no temples, and don't fall under any organized hierarchy. Instead, they are wandering prophets who move throughout the steadings spreading the teachings of the Spirit and enlisting the aid of the Jotunbrud in carrying out the Spirit's schemes. In fact, some of the Spirit's devotees are also priests of another deity.

  暮光精魂能够赐予法术给它的追随者,但仅限于前三级法术。那些已经是其祂神祇祭司的皈依者在此之外还将获得那些其守护神赐予的法术。暮光精魂的牧师不能提升到6级以上(除非他们同时是另一位神祇的祭司)。
The Twilight Spirit is capable of bestowing spells upon its followers, but only spells of the first three levels. Devotees of the Spirit who are already priests of other deities receive these spells in addition to those granted by their patron. Clerics of the Twilight Spirit cannot advance further than 6th level (unless they are also priests of another deity).

  请注意,大部分暮光精魂的仆人是在被召唤到谷地聆听精魂的声音后,自己选择了这条道路。
Note that most servants of the Twilight Spirit chose their paths after being summoned to the Vale to hear the voice of the Spirit for themselves.
