Darkness. It consumes the light, allowing evil to stir. If darkness consumes what is righteous and powerful, then what will happen? This is a question that has been asked for centuries, never with an answer. Until one fateful night.
Language of Magic: The unnamed language that gets used from time to time. The only character who understand it are Sceps and Mantine, and possibly Claydol.
Sceps understands it and can translate it, but has yet to speak it. Mantine probably couldn't speak it until after she was revealed to be the Passage Keeper of The Above. When she spoke it upon entering The Above, she was likely saying some kind of entry spell, but it wasn't translated. Claydol gave a prophecy in this language, but he probably wasn't in control of his mind as this happened, and passed out immediately afterwards.
MacGuffin: The Feather of Life, The Pilot Light and the Darkness Orb.
