Several theories have been proposed to explain the fall of the so-called Fortress of Lies (henceforth “the Fortress”), which is typically dated to 2023, though some historians place it earlier due to a different interpretation of the Fortress’s founding myths.(1) Of those theories, the most common theory is the theory of internal strife and division, which proposes that increasingly fragmented coalitions within the Fortress sabotaged key infrastructure.(2)(3)(4)
Some historians have proposed a synthesis of this theory with the external attacks theory, arguing that failing infrastructure due to internal strife allowed for external attacks to ultimately take down the Fortress.(5) However, a digitalized catalogue of surviving photographs was rediscovered in 2699, which includes photographs inconsistent with attacks on the Fortress’s walls. Thus, this theory has fallen out of fashion in recent years…

What Historians Won’t Tell You About The Fortress of Lies
Historians: So we don’t know exactly how the Fortress of Lies Fell. Our sources are contradictory and fragmented. What we do know is that surviving records discuss beasts of the night, with thick fur and too many teeth, prowling the halls and sending people to their deaths. Of course, many think this is just a metaphor–

Historians: What? You’re just a cat owner. This is a complicated subject, and you wouldn’t understand–

The tour guide stares at her holodisplay. Their bus is nearly twenty minutes late. She mutters something about the company under her breath; how does a bus even show up late? All it has to do is drive itself to the pickup spot. Worse, the estimated time until it arrives hasn’t budged in ten minutes.
She glances upwards at the clouds. The looming grey clouds are packed in tightly, and she can just feel the first drops of rain hitting her arms. She looks at her group, looks around the area, and makes a decision.
“We’re going to the abandoned castle thing,” she says, gesturing to the ruins of a building on the other side of a small hill. “I don’t know when the bus is going to get here, and I don’t want to get caught in the storm.”
She starts walking towards it, and the rest of her group trudges behind her.
Parts of the fortress’s walls are collapsed and overgrown with moss, and in a few places they’ve been nearly covered by dirt. The door to the main entrance has rotted away, as has the drawbridge, though with the moat having run dry that’s not too much of an impediment. The fortress is clearly in disrepair, but perhaps not so badly in disrepair that they can’t shelter from the storm.
As the tour guide steps into the room, the skies open and a deluge of water begins to pelt the stragglers of the group. They hurry in behind the group, packing the entry corridor at first before some of them manage to spread out into side rooms.
The moment the last person crosses the threshold, the sound of a flute echoes faintly throughout the room. There’s a flash of darkness, and when it subsides, the castle is different – the walls are standing, the corridor is less drafty, and there’s no moss anywhere.
The tour guide frowns. She’s pretty sure the person she’s standing next to wasn’t wearing cat ears before – and the person on her other side used to have a different hair color – and she definitely would have recognized the outfit the person in front of her is wearing–
She glances down at herself. She’s definitely not wearing the clothes she picked out this morning, and she’s pretty sure the ground is usually a couple inches closer. Now that she thinks about it, some of her skills feel different too – her balance is a little better than normal, and she can feel muscle memory for some things she’s sure she’s never done.
She taps her holodisplay, trying to pull up her messages. It’s unresponsive for a moment, but then with a fizzling sound it comes back, open to the clock function.

She shakes her head, tapping it again. Maybe the water caused it to bug out, or something, and that’s why it’s bugging out?
The display remains stubbornly insistent on the time, until finally she hits it especially hard and it winks out entirely.
The tour guide bites her lip. She’s not an expert on the history of the fortress, but she’s pretty sure she remembers 2023 as the year it fell.
If they’re unlucky, that could happen to them as well.
