The talk of Fastheld is of a strange nova of white light that blossomed in the southwestern region of the Empire, and that could be witnessed by people as far away as Hawk's Aerie and Freehaven!
It is described as a brilliant flare of light; an inflorescence of pure white that seemed to devour sight and sound in equal measure, turning night to day in a wave of serenity and silence. The radiance was as immaculate as any light can be - a corona of white as holy as it was amazing to behold, yet not the slightest bit blinding regardless of the illumination it cast.
To those far from the epicenter of the argent prominence, it seemed as if a sphere of light had bloomed in the region far to the southwest. To those indoors, the change from night to day was more than apparent. To those closer, the exact point of origin was remarkably clear: The Light's Reach Mesa.
