First Fall of Vigil

Established at the height of Taldor’s Golden Age, Vigil was to
be a glorious symbol of triumphant imperial power, literally
the “last wall” of the empire. Defiantly erected within sight
of where the Whispering Tyrant lay imprisoned, Vigil
exemplifies that mere mortals, possessed of honor, bravery,
and good will, can stand up against the power of death.
Through thankful years of peace and trying times of war,
Vigil has endured, bloodied but unbowed. Vigil is the shield
of Lastwall, and Lastwall the shield of the world, crafted to
be an indomitable redoubt of strength and hope, meant to
stand forever.

More than just a fortress, Vigil is a city of music, joy,
faith, and the simple miracles of life—proof positive
that all can endure no matter how grim the odds.
Even as the empire which sired it fell into decadence and
decay, Vigil stayed true to its mission. When the empire
fractured under the weight of its own corruption, the
people of Lastwall knew their watch over Gallowspire must
endure, and looked to Vigil as their guiding light—and
Vigil answered. To this day, warriors of good heart are still
drawn to Lastwall—to take their place in the line of defense,
to stand in the breach—and Vigil is the beacon that draws
them. Whatever the cost, whatever may shift and change in
the world around them, in Vigil the watch is kept, sword
and lance and arrow still kept sharp. In Vigil, prayers and
hymns are raised, spirits lifted, and hope renewed. Here
the mission is never lost, nor does remembrance fade. The
smallest child in Vigil knows that victory is bought dearly
with the blood of the fallen, and every citizen knows his
duty to keep the faith and hold the line.
