I personally think it a little ironic that we still refer to Harmast’s “Lightbringers’ Quest” when after all it turned out to be a “Darknessbringer’s Quest”. Those Lightbringers were pretty shocked when Arkat embraced the Darkness to defeat the new Light God.
If you recall from some time back, the invocation is:
“The world has fallen,” Orlanth said afterwards, “when a chief cannot have peace through a meal! I will go and regain this Grand Order.” He called for the Knowing God to come to him, and asked what the Grand Order was.
“It is a mirror of fire,” said Lhankor Mhy. “It is not for everyone. Some are consumed by it. Others turn bone cold.”
Orlanth asked where it was. “Past the edge of the world,” said the Knowing God. “I do not know the roads myself.”
“Then I will find them,” said Orlanth, “and I will return with the Grand Order so that we can have a proper feast.”
And Harmast found the Mirror Fire, and returned with the Grand Order so that the Orlanthi could have a proper feast. And that was all correct.
Arkat was there, and the feast was great. Not that many trolls around back then, but there was plenty of beef and mutton, provided by the Heortlings settled along the Doskier River. When we called upon the gods and ancestors, there were no angry dead, no attacks physical or magical, and for a moment, all seemed right in the world. And the beer flowed freely. What else could we ask for? The war of course would continue, but the Grand Order was back, at least for the moment.
