Curse of the Mistwraith
Third Age 5637: Dakar gives the Black Rose Prophecy during a scrying of the futures of Arithon and Lysaer by the Fellowship of Seven at Althain Tower. When queried by Sethvir about the existence of a black rose, Dakar added that the briar's growth is tied to Arithon's willing acceptance of kingship.
Third Age 5671: Arithon's plan to bring peace between clansmen and townsfolk leads him towards embracing kingship. However, subsequent plot events involving necromancy abort his plan before it can begin, and the Black Rose Prophecy is left in jeopardy.
