“Denizens of Galismar; we gather today, not to mourn the passing of our fellow folk, but to celebrate the lives they lived. To honor the sacrifices they made to preserve our way of life….the people of Vegas did not choose to become the epicenter of this great catastrophe, it was through a series of unfortunate circumstances that led us to this calamitous end, but those self same circumstances showed the enemies of the light just how strong our will is.
Despite immeasurable odds we were able to secure the position of the Archdruid, and lay the body of Phlildaeus to rest. But these achievements came with a cost…a cost any of us would have paid just to lessen the burdens left on those who were remain. But fate had a different design, and the lives that were lost may never be reclaimed, never be exchanged, and from henceforth…never be forgotten.
Let this tree remain for all to see, to memorialize the people of Vegas, the warriors who fell, and the sacrifices made here in the Name of the Light.
Let any who wish to speak of the dead speak now. But let your stories be fond memories, remember them as they would wish to be remembered.
(People take turns telling stories of people who passed, anecdotes and funny tales. Feel free to insert any roleplay here)
Thank you all, know that from Talon our friends and families are smiling down on us in this moment. They hear our words and know in their hearts that we are safe.
Go forth from this place secure in the knowledge that our loved ones will forever be in our hearts and memories. Drink for them. Live because of them. Go at peace. And may Eldarr walk with you.
