The prophecy consists of cryptic phrases given by The Prophet that help Ninja locate Music Notes in The Messenger. If Ninja does not understand the prophecy, he can pay The Shopkeeper 300 Time Shards CoinIcon Edited.png to decipher it, and The Shopkeeper will put a hint marker on his map. With the Version 1.0.4 update, The Prophet's prophecy phrase can be toggled on and off inside the map, providing the dialogue without having to actually talk to The Prophet in the Tower of Time HQ.
