Starting with the voice of Albart of Ancinor, the first Keeper of the Chronicles, we read the story of Orin and Shalako, two brothers. Orin is the Monarch of Poseidonis, Shalako is the leader of the religious caste. After Orin gives some technological advances to outsiders, the outsiders attack, intending to take more. Orin decides a more permanent protection is needed, and proposes to dome the city, a proposal which Shalako violently opposes, as it will anger the sky-goddess Suula.
Orin ignores Shalako and builds the dome anyway, in order to protect his people. When disaster doesn't strike immediately, Shalako relents and forgives his brother. But he did so too soon, as he learns when an asteroid appears in the sky and threatens the city. All Orin's technological attempts to stop it fail, and the city braces for impact, sealing the gates and hoping for the best.
The asteroid strikes, and the city and all the land around sink into the depths.
