All we have are the tales the wind tells as it travels by, tales of the places our ancestors left, of treasures unfound and paths yet walked. Yet look out there, for beyond the past lies our true destiny. Listen to the wind! It speaks of distances beyond measure, of lands rich with game and the beauty of the world beyond Vimary's shores.
Beyond Vimary we are free. Free of the past, free of the Fatimas and free to remake that which our ancestors lost. This is our destiny, to explore, to discover, to conquer, to reclaim our birthright. So sit here with me friends, and listen, for the winds speak in many voices. Not all the voices are friendly, not all are hopeful, but they all speak of the same thing, freedom and destiny. We are the Eighth Tribe, we will listen to the winds and we will howl with them and walk those distant paths.
