The Folks of Sal Vindagyr
Earlier than ice and snow set upon the mountain that is known as Dragonspine, it was as soon as a verdant, flourishing mountain. It was known as Vindagnyr, and the dominion that dominated it was known as Sal Vindagnyr. The individuals who lived there took refuge on the mountain, away from the blizzards that plagued Mond earlier than Barbatos’ time. They constructed their metropolis on the mountain and flourished for a time.
The folks took care of a white tree situated of their kingdom. They place a lot significance on that tree, such that when a princess was born beneath it, the toddler obtained blessings from the priestess. A kind of blessings is the ability to see the long run, one which expressed itself in her artwork. Over time, she began portray frescoes, a few of which might nonetheless be seen within the recreation’s current.
Throughout these occasions, the Skyfrost Nail anchored Celestia to the mountain. A minimum of, that’s what among the murals recommend. It might be one of many elements why Sal Vindagnyr was affluent. At any price, the princess dreamed of a dragon filling the mountain with a cloud of scarlet poison. Coupled with this scary dream, the Skyfrost Nail all of the sudden fell into the mountain, bringing with it blizzards of ice and snow.
A Ray of Hope
To discover a answer to the issue, they requested an outlander, Imunlaukr, to discover a option to cease the chilly. He was near the princess, who waited for his return and in addition gave him the Snow-Tombed Starsilver sword. She had devoted a fresco to the hero to be accomplished upon his return, however her phrases by no means reached him via the storm.
Whereas he was gone, the Skyfrost Nail break up into three, touchdown on the Starglow Cavern, an underground chamber, and on the spot the place their tree grew. Noticing the state of the tree, the princess took it upon herself to choose its most full department and tried to graft it onto a wholesome one. It didn’t take, and the princess died within the snowstorm close to her try.
One other additionally tried therapeutic the Ley Strains related to the tree, however they’d all withered and any makes an attempt had been for naught. They introduced the princess to be buried within the Starglow Cavern. With no princess, and no hope for surviving the sheer chilly and countless blizzards, the folks succumbed to its destiny.
Imunlaukr returned unsuccessful in his hunt for solutions and located town deserted and its inhabitants useless. Cursing the gods of Celestia, he left town and the sword he was given to discover a place the place he might struggle.
And so the as soon as verdant mountain was one in every of ice and snow, its folks have lengthy gone. It lay untouched for years till the calamity occurred. The dragon Durin, corrupted by Gold, attacked Mondstadt. With the Knights gone on an expedition, Barbatos was the one one who might defend Mond. He woke and summoned Dvalin, one of many 4 Winds, to struggle the corrupted dragon.
Dvalin was profitable, although with out sustaining accidents himself. He threw the dropping dragon’s physique onto the mountain. The princess’s imaginative and prescient did come true, solely she and her folks weren’t round to witness it. The shattered tree in some way revived itself with the dragon’s stays, however additional development wasn’t potential till the Traveler got here to the mountain. The occasion additionally precipitated the folks to rename the mountain as Dragonspine, as it’s known as that within the current time of the sport.
This once-prosperous civilization now lay in ruins underneath all this ice and snow, with just a few murals to show their existence. A couple of different relics could also be discovered by the Traveler years later, all that’s left of the folks.
As for Imunlaukr, it appeared he made his approach again to Previous Mondstadt, seeing because it was nonetheless the time Andrius and Decarabian had been preventing for the seat of Archon. He in some way discovered a spouse earlier than dying, as his descendants had been a part of the Imunlaukr Clan of Mondstadt. He and his descendants entertained the gods with their battles. The clan pale into obscurity later, as at present, there aren’t any recognized or confirmed characters to say lineage.
That’s the tragic story of the folks of Sal Vindagnyr and the mountain now referred to as Dragonspine.
The Skyfrost Nail bears some resemblance to the pillars seen within the log-in display screen of the sport. Whereas it’s not confirmed, what we see on that display screen could also be part of Celestia. This idea can be supported by the murals within the secret room in Dragonspine, depicting Celestia hovering over the mountain and the Nail in place.
Thus, it is sensible for Imunlaukr to curse the gods. In the event that they hadn’t moved the nail wouldn’t have fallen into the mountain and killed off the folks there. Then once more, we don’t know the explanation why they moved or in the event that they meant for the nail to fall or not. Additionally, possibly it was for the perfect. In spite of everything, the ice and snow sealed in Durin’s corruptive affect, protecting it to the mountain. In any other case, it might’ve unfold to the remainder of Mond.
