The Legend of First Hero is one of the well-known folklore among Eremidians as well as some other neighboring nations in Runemilenia, noting the origin of the Kingdom and the alleged “denial of the catastrophe” he had committed in the late Goldian era. While the citizens acknowledged of the heroic tale as some sort of their history and heritage, the secret behind it is quite grim and inevitable; the tale itself tells when and how the Kingdom will fall in the future.
Despite the contents it has, the tale clearly describes the First Hero’s deeds in the past and how he managed to establish a kingdom that would prosper for at least 1000 years.
While the tale’s origin is a subject of dispute among scholars, the first evidence was found in the Classburg Archive room, dated AE15—meaning the first physical copy of such tale was made seven years after the First Hero’s disappearance from Runemilenia. The Royal Court didn’t deny this discovery, instead, the Court remarked it as “legacy from the founding father of this nation.”
Since the first years of the Kingdom, Bards often recite the tale as part of their performance throughout the Kingdom. The College of Bards in Classburg, as well as Faleon, often use the tale as part of their curriculum and test for bards-in-training.
The Legend of First Hero is a tale consisted of seven chapters, each contains eighteen proses telling the deeds of First Hero and his journey to “save the world”.
The tale is the first and foremost origin of the notorious Prophecy of Five Races, with several of the phrases in the last chapter of the tale clearly describes how the Kingdom would fall; starting from the appearance of an island in the west sky of the Kingdom, the great famine, “an attack from the hellish kingdom“ and ended with “the Devourer comes, its claws rip the realm’s corners, its teeth sink into the very soil of Classburg—the world as we know it will be gone.”
First Hero, allegedly was aware of the consequences of his acts in his heroic adventure, warned his closest allies of the inevitable, eventually made a reminder of such prophecy in form of Kingdom Tenets and the artifacts that he and his allies deemed would be useful shall the event happen in the future, including the Farsight Amulet.
