Lightning & Light
Feastday, day 4 of the month Phoenatos in the year 5101

***TECHNICAL NOTE***
This log is actually the combination of two logs -- one by Opalina's player and one by Iscikella's player. It should be noted, therefore, that in this log the "you" references refer to either of these two parties, as noted in the initital reference.

The actions of the essence are simple to discern since they are extraordinary actions done without parentheses. What is the voice of the essence, when done through the mouth of Opalina and Iscikella, is less taggable. However, since that portion of the log is from Iscikella's viewpoint, the words listed there as being said by "Iscikella" rather than "you" are those of the essence. With regard to those of the essence through Opalina, I believe the nature of what is said makes the differentiation between player and essence vocalizations.

During the time the essence used the body/voice of either character, neither the player of Iscikella nor the player of Opalina had any control.

[Icemule Trace, Town Center]
The bustling town comes together in this square. Halflings dressed in varying fashions stand about, some chattering happily, others reclining on cloaks laid on the ground. One ancient halfling leans against the base of the large ice statue of a mule, snoring blissfully. A feeling of community pervades the area, putting you immediately at ease.

[Temple Burrow, Koar and Lumnis]
On the edge of the glacier, you have a marvelous view of the city to the south. Your eyes follow the slightly haphazard streets around Icemule Trace until they meet the four roads and eventually the gates in the walls. Above you towers the great Temple, carved from the purest ice and shining with a nearly divine light in the sun. A ramp of ice leads down to the west, while an ice staircase leads down to the east and a set of carved ice steps lead down to the northwest around an oddly shaped ice flow.

[Hall of the Gods, Main Chapel]
The Temple has been carved from the ice of the glacier. A vaulted ceiling rises above you, carved with faint designs, and thick pillars etched with the symbols of the gods rise to meet the dome. The walls glimmer with light from the sun, adding divine ambiance to an already spectacular chamber. To the northwest is a passage, seemingly brighter than the rest, while the tunnel to the southeast looks darker than you would think possible in the well-lit Temple.

You say, "It makes no difference."

Nekales asks, "does that mean i have to pray or somehting?"

You shake your head.

Blood continues to flow from Opalina's eyes.

Opalina recites:
"I was glad when they said unto me
We will go into the house of Koar.
Our feet shall stand in thy gates: O Icemule
Icemule is built as a city
that is at unity in itself.
O pray for the peace of Icemule
they shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls
and planteousness within thy palaces."
