When Emma Wielant, the author of the epic poem entitled the Epitaph of Twilight died, Harald Hoerwick wanted to express the love he felt for her in the form of a virtual daughter. To accomplish this task he created the AI Morganna to gather emotional data, from which he hoped the Ultimate AI, Aura, could be born. Designing a game system around Morganna, he disguised her as a MMORPG known as Fragment and sold it to the CC Corporation.

Harald also created eight programs based on the eight phases found in the Epitaph of Twilight. These programs were designed to work together gathering different types of emotional data from humans, which Morganna would store for the sole purpose of being Data Drained. However, Morganna became jealous and began to take measures to prevent Aura's birth - one of these actions was reprogramming the eight Phases under her control, causing them to only collect data on negative emotions.

"It tells of the battle between the Cursed Wave and the armies of light and darkness. The story centers around a human and two half-sprites searching for the Twilight Dragon, who is foretold to have the power to defeat the Cursed Wave. The Twilight Dragon cannot talk, but instead, it speaks to your heart. If the will to be rid of the Cursed Wave is strong enough, the Twilight Dragon will destroy it, but if it isn't, then it will not. Assisting them in their journey to the Wavering Peninsula at the edge of the world, where the Twilight Dragon is rumored to exist, are Fili the White, and Bith the Black, assistants to Apeiron, King of Light, and Helba, Queen of the Dark."



Epitaph of the Twilight

Unknown where the Cursed Wave was born...
After the stars doth cross the heavens...
The sky in the East doth darken.
And air doth fills with mourning.
From the chosen land beyond the forest,
A sign of the Wave comes.
Riding the Wave is: Skeith, the Shadow of Death,
to drown all that stands.
Mirage of Deceit, Innis,
Betray all with the flawed image,
and did aid the Wave.
And by the Power of Magus,
a drop from the Wave doth reach the heavens,
and creates a new Wave.
With the Wave, Fidchell,
the power to tell the dark future,
hope darkens, sadness and despair rule.
Gorre schemes when swallowed by the Cursed Wave.
Macha seduces with the sweet trap.
Wave reaches the Pinnacle, and escape none can.
Tarvos still remains with more cruelty to punish and destroy.
And with the turbulent destruction after the Wave.
Only a void remains.
From deep within the void arrives Corbenik.

Yet to return, the shadowed one.
Who quests for the Twilight Dragon
Rumbles the Dark Hearth,
And Helba, Queen of the Dark, has raised finally her army.
Apeiron, King of Light, beckons...
At the base of the rainbow they meet.
Against the abominable "Wave," together they fight.
Alba's lake boils.
Light's great tree doth fall.
Power - all now to droplets turned in the temple of Arche
Koeln.
Returns to nothing, this world of shadowless ones.
Never to return, the shadowless one.
Who quests for the Twilight Dragon.

The wife buffeted by "waves" turns her back on the field.
The daughter that waited for the shadows repeated,
"For sure... For sure I can go home."
But the girl did not know...
The truth that waited at the end of the journey
The eternal mourning of her land.

In the place of the calamitous, only life was known.
After the circling stars
When the eastern dark void, the air full of despair
In the depths of the divided forest, in the land of Karma,

Riding fast on the path is Skeith
Bearing death's shadow, it eliminates all that seek to
thwart it.
The Confusing Mirage, Innis
Deceives those that see it with illusions, rescues the
waves

The wave soaring high, when its head is smashed,
A new wave will emerge
To become Magus's power.
When questioning the wave,
Hope's light will be lost when he speaks of the dark future
of where
sorrow and resignation reign.
Using Fiddlehiem's Technique

When engulfed by the Waves of Calamity, Gorre will plan
The sweet snare of conciliation is Macha
The Waves, an exceeding maelstrom
Nothing can escape

When you think you have escaped, Tarvos exists
To destroy those with his exceeding cruelty
Upon violent requital, only to remain is the void, the
vacant darkness
is the harbinger that Corbenik is to appear.

----Emma Wielant

Epitaph 00
Shunning the field broken by Wave.
The shadowed girl whispers,
"Surely, I will return."
Alas, the truth unbeknownst.
Awaiting her at journey's end;
Eternal mourning for her land.

Epitaph 01
When the finger points to the
yonder moon,
The fool will not look at the fingertip.

Epitaph 02
The whole cannot be changed.
We have already lost that chance.
Because the time left to us was short,
We were mistaken in our path.
But now do we realize,
We should change not the whole,
But the parts.

Epitaph 03
Wave soars and shrouds the eyes.
No means to fight an omnipresent force,
The shadowless ones just grieve.
Why must it be a Wave?
Divide, if it would just...
Then retaliate, we may.

Notes from Analysis

* It is thought that Harald, who did not realize at
first what a daunting task creating the Ultimate AI
would be, particularly related to this passage, as felt
foolish in his lack of foresight.

Epitaph 04
Over the Keel Mountains,
Meets an ape with human speech.
The ape asks,
"What clings to you?
Bear it—you cannot.
Accept it—you cannot.
But hidden—it is from you.
Recite its name."

Phrases of Epitaph

Unknown where the Cursed Wave was born;
After the stars doth cross the heavens,
The sky in the East doth darken and air doth fill with
mourning.
From the chosen land beyond the forest, a sign of the
wave comes.
Riding the Wave is Skeith, the Shadow of Death, to
drown all that stands.
Mirage of Deceit, Innis, Betray all with the flawed
image, and did aid the Wave.
And by the Power of Magus, a drop from the Wave doth

With the Wave, Fidchell, the power to tell the dark

Gorre schemes when swallowed by the Cursed Wave.
Macha seduces with the sweet trap.
Wave reaches the Pinnacle, and escape none can. Tarvos
still remains with more cruelty to punish and
destroy.
And with the turbulent destruction after the Wave. Only
a void remains. From deep within the void arrives Corbenik.
Perhaps then the Wave is just a beginning as well.
Answer

Your own name;the name of your shadow, your dark side.

Fidchell's Prophecy
Like a frenzied horse that is driven.
An unseen wind of plague shrieks across the border.
Pandemonium, wailing, and stench of carnage fills the
air. There is no place to run. No hope of escape.
Those who are mourned will never return.
The hands of time cannot be turned back.

Notes from Analysis

* "Wind of plague" refers to the virus corruption.
* "Border" refers to the servers, security zones, and
the real world.
* "Those who are mourned" refers to the belief that
computers are infallible and dependable.

"Epigraph"
The Keel Mountains traversed at last,
we met a dragon that spoke thus:
"Sheraton am I, who interprets the signs.
An answer to my question, give.
If you can, complete my role will be,
and I will leave this land.
Though equally it exists before everyone's eyes,
grasp it not one person can.
Tell me—what is it?"

Answer

"The moment."
