To my esteemed fellows at Elgaud AcademyThe nature of the Helvault confounds me!
It is absurd to call it a ruined monument.
As for a shard of silver moon, who dares call me a fool? We must implore the Lunarch for another viewing.
This mystery cannot elude us.
– H. Karlmahn


Brother V,
I had a curious nightmare.
Your blade met innocent flesh and a drop of blood spilled on the ground.
The drop became a stream and the stream became a relentless river of blood.
And the world drowned under the red tide.
I insist that you explain this witchcraft.
Brother J.


Elder of Gatstaf.
I shall send you a copy of my almanac,
but until that time

Harvest Moon-
Recite the Ward of Bounty for prosperous hardy wheat and root-crops. Wards of Firelight discourage vampires from attacking the reapers.

Hunter’s Moon –
Venture out if you must. But always hunt in groups and renew your Wanderer Wards at crossways altars.

New Moon-
Honor the migrating herons with feasting. Wards of Kindness will ameliorate the vengeance gods.

Elder Detlef


Master Lywer,
When you cross the moors, stay on Angel’s Way until you reach the river. Say a blessing at each altar you pass. Do not permit night to overtake you.
I haven’t the manpower to recover your corpse.
Gregel
Militia Captain

Und als wäre das nicht schon genug, hat sich auch das Buch von Josh Brauer gefüllt:

60th of Hunter’s Moon, Ava. 719
This book was once a place of solace for me.  A refuge.  Now that its prayers have somehow faded from its pages, I cannot help but think that it is a sign that Avacyn has forsaken me.
My father has sent me on a mission for yet another of the weapons.  I haven’t the heart to tell him that each of these quests has proven to be near fatal.  I cannot let him down is it heresy to say that I fear his disappointment more than Avacyn’s?
He has given me the name of a village; Hanwier.  After (2? a?) long journey, and a short battle with a band of brigands, I arrived this night to the shuttering of windows and closing of doors.  Whether this place is cursed as its inhabitants believe remains to be seen.  The curse of mistrust is flourishing however.
So this book, once a place I went to for enlightenment, now becomes a place that will hopefully enlighten others.  For I have little doubt that this is my final sortie.  If I do not return, I pray to Avacyn that this book finds its way home.
Father, if you are reading this, I am sorry for failing you.
Raben

Ok, dann sammeln wir doch mal die Fakten ein:

  • es gibt eine Ortschaft namens Hanweir, der Bürgermeister ist/war Jurgen Garensun (eine legendärer Mensch?)
  • er hat eine Tochter namens Lorelei
  • es gibt einen Ort namens Helvault, der für Menschen verboten wird, aber auch für sie interessant ist
  • Pitre, the Thatcher ist ein ungewollter Held, der einen Vampir getötet hat, steht in einer Verbindung (Beziehung?) zu Lorelei
  • Reika, the Peddler ist ein gesuchter Verbrecher. Welcher Art auch immer.
  • Raben kommt auf einer Reise/Suche nach Hanweir und das Buch ist sein Tagebuch

Viele Fakten, viele Details. Vielleicht könnt ihr ja noch ein paar weitere herausfinden aus den Briefen und Notizen der letzten Tage? Man sollte die ganzen Namen, Orte und Ereignisse versuchen zu ordnen…

    Raben? Also ich glaube das wurde falsch übersetzt und soll Raven heißen. Raben passt auch nicht so toll als gruseligen Namen, wie Raven. Muss dabei an einen Rabenmann denken, der in den Planeswalker Comics vorgekommen ist. Vielleicht kommt ja irgendwann ein Mann, der sich in eine Krähe „transformieren“ kann. Man beachte, dass dieser Ausdruck mehr nach den Film Transformers klingt und flavourmäßig stört.

    • Schau mal unten auf das Foto von der Seite, dort steht auch Raben (wenn ich es richtig lesen kann, zumindest sicher nicht Raven). Das passt als Name auch ganz gut in die Namenswelt von Innistrad: Garensun, Lorelei… viel skandinavisch-germanisch Sprachverwandschaft.
