The secrets revealed in the Draconic Prophecy drove the progenitor wyrms, Eberron, Khyber, and Siberys, to split the world at the dawn of time. Esoteric fragments of its revelations inspired another generation of draconic creatures to reclaim Eberron from fiendish overlords. The fragments of the Prophecy, scattered throughout the world, constantly fascinate the dragons of Argonnessen and small groups of erudite scholars among the lesser races.
Although it appears that only dragons have the capability to fully comprehend the Prophecy, individual fragments convey guidelines to possible futures or manifest other magical powers. Every fragment is of great value and attracts the attention of dragons, who ever seek to glean hidden meanings within the Prophecy, or members of the Mosaic Committee of Aundair, who wrongly believe the Prophecy heralds an apocalypse and its fragments should be destroyed.
Interpreting the general meaning of marks tied to the Prophecy requies the ability to read Draconic and a successful DC 30 Knowledge (arcana) check. What a mark signifies is up to the DM, who can use it as a springboard to adventure.
