Suggestion: Sneaking through the streets of Talishara, the mages reach the Oracle. They then use a simple enchantment to neutralize the Lucian priests. Once at the Oracle they attempt to use it, but they are unfamiliar with the spells necessary. The magic soon becomes out of control, and the following prophecy is recieved:
"One friend turns on another.
A great city at the edge of a desert is besieged,
from above and from the ground.
A dark, ancient power awakens.
The fate of the world teeters on the edge of sword.
That which was great shall be cast down or shall rise again."
The out of control magic awakes the Lucians, who apprehend all but one junior mage, who escapes and bears word back to Mirabalpur.
"Council of Twelve I have a proposal." The Archmage Eubratosa says to the gathered mages.
"What is it Archmage?" ask one of the Council members.
"I beleave that the Expedition to Celapar should not be forgotten, especialy those who died."
The Archmage tells the Council. Their is a mumer of agreement. from the council. "I propose that we build a monument to those who died on the Expedition."
One of the Council members stands up and says. "I second the proposal."
"All in favor of building the monument say yea." Archmage asks
"YEA" every Council member says. "All oposed say nay." Archmage says. The room is dead silcent. "The yea's have it. We will build the Monument."

On the day of the dedication of the Monument there will be a celebration all over the island of Mir and at the hight of the celebration in the city of Mirabalpur. Archmage Eubratosa will speak. Then for the next month Archmage Eubratosa will travel all over the Island of Mir givening speakes. The monument it self will be a statue of the Old Archmage. It will be the tallest thing Mirabalpur.
