Ravens and crows. Rats. Mists and clouds. Insects and corruption. Strange events and odd occurrences.
The ordinary twisted and strange. Wonders!
The dead are beginning to walk, and some see them. Others do not, but more and more, we all fear the night.

They rain upon us beneath a dead sky, crushing us with their fury, until as one we beg: "Let it begin!" - (Journal of the Unknown Scholar, entry for The Feast of Freia, 1000 NE; The Gathering Storm, Header)
