Edicts of the Prime Designate, Volume 742 is looted from an Ancient Volume in the Hall of the Keepers in Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr.

It is a book that outlines three edicts from Prime Designate Odyn on interacting with the newly emerged mortals.


Edicts of the Prime Designate, Volume 742


It has been brought to my attention that, as of late, many of you have become fascinated by the emergence of mortal beings. That is, creatures born of flesh rather than crafted of stone and steel like our loyal titan-forged.

While my initial impulse was to eradicate these aberrations before they evolved further, I now believe they may prove useful if properly controlled.

Yet even as we guide their development according to the edicts of the titans, we must always remember that mortal minds are destined to be small and incapable of complex understanding.

Therefore, as your Prime Designate, I must establish a few minor--but necessary--regulations to govern your interactions with these nascent beings.

First: All historical records documenting the advancements of the Black Empire are to be purged.

Paint that age as one of chaos and misery, a pernicious blight that we keepers eradicated. With the Old Gods locked in confinement, there should be no evidence available to contradict our assertions.

Surely if you care for these mortals, you would not wish to see them led astray into darkness.

Second: Attribute all accomplishments and works of wonder to the titans alone.

Despite the relentless arguments made by some of you, this is not a fallacy. After all, can anything truly be said to exist until it has been ordered? Of course not.

Therefore, it is irrefutable that the titans are the source of all creation.

Third: Do not share knowledge of the First Ones.

Mortals could not conceive of the wonders that the makers granted to the titans in Zereth Ordus. Thus, learning of the Progenitors would only confuse them.

It is enough that mortals know the titans brought Order to the cosmos, and that they are owed deference.

While some among you would prefer to argue these points further, such debate can no longer be tolerated.

I remind you that I speak with the authority of the titans, and any further dissent may cause me to question whether you have succumbed to outside influences.

Remember: Life is chaos. It must be controlled.

Your leader,

Prime Designate Odyn
