At the beginning of Tzarin, strange scenes began to be seen across the Inner Sea. First noticed by Elodres Diluculo who raised the alarm to Celest, the entire Basin was made aware by the shouts of Helstren, the Harbourmaster of Celest, who also shouted of seeing the Wheel of the Goloths floating across the surface.
As many made haste to the waters to search for the Wheel, the scenes continued to be displayed, mainly focused upon a fleet of ships making their way across the sea before being destroyed by a large group of kelpies. However, interspersed among these flickering echoes in time were afterimages of an ongoing battle between two factions. While the search continued, it was Xypher Stormcrow who first found the Wheel of the Goloths floating across the surface of the water.
Alerting the others of its position, the curious adventurers gathered together to follow the Wheel as it moved. When it finally seemed to settle, its activity began to increase, before emitting a large beam of light. As this happened, a final scene played out before their eyes, showing the kelpies agreeing that they must hide this island from sight and presence, so as to respect the innocents lost in the awful task they were required to undertake. Using unknown magic, they hid this island, and it was only now due to the Wheel of the Goloths, the island of Olimsito was returned.
Celestian Iytha ventured into the wreckage of a ship there and discovered that Namoc Tsolut, an elfen historian from Caoimhe Dell, had already arrived. Quick to greet him, Namoc informed Iytha that he required some assistance, and she quickly left to fulfill this task, leaving the other adventurers to converse with Namoc. It became clear that Namoc had studied the Taint Wars, and was a scholar concerning the event whereby the kelpies ripped apart the fleet of ships to prevent the Horn of the Urlach from reaching Ladantine. Upon the emergence of Olimsito Isle from the eddying time waves, Namoc had travelled to the island to further his studies.
While Iytha worked, others helped to educate him on more current events that he had missed and learn a little of the person he was. Finally, she returned but was unable to fully help Namoc. He now waits, if a little impatiently, aboard the ship for any who wish to try.
The Wheel of the Goloths has settled down once again, but what was the glimpses of the two factions locked in battle? Those who saw it were left with a deep foreboding uneasiness.
