Contents of Book
This is a collection of predictions and doom-mongerings from the mystic and soothsayer Arthur Dandelion. His more cryptic visions, such as the one about two brothers of little wit who shall release howling death upon a town of blood, have invited speculation and much shrugging of shoulders. Among his other prophecies is the one that foresees the invention of a machine that will aid in the cleaning of soiled garments. His most famous warning is the one that predicts the end of the world. According to Dandelion, it will not come suddenly, but: "the ground shall shake, and the past shall erupt into the present in a most bloody manner. Though perhaps a strange being shall transform into a dragon and lay waste to all that lives long time before that happens. What do I know? This isn't an exact science or anything."
The "brothers of little wit" refers to Sam and Max Spade in the quest Evil in Wraithmarsh. "The ground shall shake, and the past shall erupt into the present in a most bloody manner." could refer to See the Future, or to the second time Lucien shoots the Hero, and the subsequent A Perfect World quest. It may also refer to history repeating itself when the rebuilt Tattered Spire would be used by Lucien to destroy and remake the world by his design. "Though perhaps a strange being shall transform into a dragon and lay wast to all that lives long time before that happens" refers to Jack of Blades from Fable: The Lost Chapters.
