Father Ursus has been spotted. Rumour and reports begin to flow in from the Dieman countryside...

His strange gangly figure has been seen running around the countryside, apparently never stopping to rest. Apparently he furiously shouts at each person getting close enough to hear (most flee from the strange shouting apparition before that). The following is an excerpt of the things he has reputedly shouted at people...

"I shall run the plains of Diemed till the Allfather summons me!
Breathe the scent of truth before it is too late! Everything that you think bring you pleasure forever, is sin!
The truest follower descends gladly into darkness, knowing the Allfather brings the light anywhere!
Breathe the manure of deceit at your own peril!
Patience! Patience! Patience! The Allfather calls to the human race! Choices made too fast are made in blindness! Know the scent of truth first! Repent! Repent! Repent!
You know your sins! You know your sins! You know your sins! They smell as bad as the smell of burning flesh!
Faith leads to abstinence! Abstinence brings clarity! Clarity is the reward!
Throw your weight behind the Allfather's carriage! Push! Push! Push! AND NEVER GIVE UP PUSHING!
Bathe in the aromatic sweetness of the truth! The Allfather cometh! The Allfather came! The Allfather is allready amongst us!"


Later on it is reported that a gathering of people have begun trailing him. Apparently watching for the appearance of the Allfather... It is generally agreed amongst the peasantry that Father Ursus must be a very crazy man, which brings some to think he must be a holy man indeed...

Having crossed the nation of Diemed from the south to the north, Ursus reaches the border to Endier. Followed by a devout group of around a hundred, all made up of the bereft, the sick, the rebellious and the wayward.

Ursus stops and speaks to the gathered crowd.

"You who follow faithfully are not given anything of this world, indeed from you will be demanded everything, nothing given in return. Even your lives will be lost as we walk the path of greatest holiness. But for you who stand the distance, yours will be the greater gift!
And that is why the others have forgotten you, have called you madmen and little more than beasts. Spat upon you and set you upon your lonely road.
But you must not be sad, not be angry, not despise them for their derision. They cannot and will not understand why you have chosen to follow the true word of Haelyn.
For they are in the grasp of easy living, they feel the world is working to their advantage and fear nothing. Theirs is the path of elbow and shove, They are the wayward ones and will never discover true strength.
Now, we will go and clean ourselves so we may be presentable in the eyes of the Allfather as we continue on our ordained path. NASTY GRUBBY UNCLEAN SINNERS! REPENT REPENT REPENT! YOUR PATH IS BESET BY STINKY NASTY SMELLY DIRTY! AND I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU!


Yeah, it was only the really weird Diemans who kept up with Ursus this far, but even though he broke out in extreme fits, frothing at the mouth and shouting his head off like some madman, they still followed him. For they saw him as the terrible incarnation of a man possessed by divine influences. His clarity of vision was matched only by his sudden outbursts. They did not differentiate between his words, all came from the Allfather.

And so the not so merry band of devout Haelynites crossed the border to Endier. Finding some opportune place upriver to swim across...
