Symbiosis
Restday, day 27 of the month Lormesta in the year 5102

[Hall of the Mind]
An aura of tranquility sits over the room. Stars twinkle on the south wall, comforting as they sparkle in the blackness, while the north wall glows a pearlescent grey the color of the moon behind mist. A black altar sits before the starry sky, and a grey altar seems to fade out of the misty wall.
Obvious exits: southwest, up.
Kadesha followed.

You sigh.

Lady Opalina just arrived.

You say, "They are not listening."

You sit down.

Opalina says, "I am"

Toramir just arrived.

You smile at Opalina.

Opalina says, "they spoke to me"

You ask, "What did they say?"

Opalina says, "the essance"

You cock your head at Opalina.

Kadesha says, "listening to what? I havemt been able to hear anything"

Opalina says, "the voice first said,"We have now been released, but just because we are free, we will not relinquish our hold upon you. We shall return."

You bite your lip.

You say, "That's not good."

You shake your head.

Opalina says, "then,"I shall continue to grasp at you as long as your lifeforce remains strong. You shall not hide. You CANNOT hide from us"

Opalina says, "thats when I said I wasn't for them."

Opalina says, "and they said..We shall see, my dear. We shall see. You will not hide and I shall find you soon. I must feed more upon your lifeforce."

Opalina says, "and then they were gone"

Opalina says, "I must help in the search for these orbs you speak"

You say, "thurfel cast them away."

You say, "but he said it wasn't permanent."

A cold wind sweeps through the chamber.

You say, "He couldn't hold them permanently."

Opalina shivers.

Opalina gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

You say, "And then he told us about the vessels."

You say, "He said is the only chance... without the staff."

You say, "That each of the nine has a vessel."

You say, "And that the vessels must be found."

Opalina says, "then we must search them out"

Opalina says, "I will help"

You say, "And he believed he had a method to destroy the magic in them."

You say, "And then they reached from from under the snow..."

You say, "...and grabbed him..."

You say, "...and pulled him down."

You weep softly, quiet tears falling from your eyes.

Toramir gasps.

Opalina says, "so we must find the vessels M'lady"


SOME TIME LATER...

[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 also see an arctic fox who is sitting.
Also in the room: Draques, Arimantis, Lady Ilvane, Lord Roelon, Linora, Lady Strayla, Keriddwen, Arianiss, Lady Pyrocite, Lady Sheka, Robinblood, Aranrhod, Alyxandrah who is seated, Elendr

Sheka taps a huge charred skull.

Keriddwen just hugged Roelon.

You ask, "And why would anyone believe Yfa?"

Strayla says, "I believe Yfa is damned..."

Sheka asks, "Does this not resemble you greatly Yfa?"

Pyrocite says, "That's simply dead."

Sheka smirks.

Pyrocite nods to Sheka.

You hear the faint thoughts of Xulia echo in your mind:
"If'n it smells like a hafwings soul, is prolly a vessel!"

Strayla says, "Which is why she is not yet dead."

Keriddwen nods to Roelon.

Arimantis paces back and forth.

Alyxandrah glances at Elendr.

The arctic fox sniffs into the air.

Xulia's group just arrived.

Sheka tilts her charred skull side to side, making the light play off it.

Xulia's jaw drops.

Alyxandrah smiles at Elendr.

Elendr says, "When are you going to understand. She, is irrelevant, I, am Irrelevant. Only we are here to speak with you."

Sheka glances at Xulia.

Xulia looks rather confused.

Sheka mutters darkly.

You ask, "We who?"

You cock your head at Elendr.

Jacinto slowly empties his lungs.

Keriddwen says, "well there was perfume"

Alyxandrah says, "Oh for the love of Charl, Tierus..."

Linora curtsies to Jacinto.

Tierus says, "Charl loves nae'un."

Ilvane appears to be trying hard not to grin.

You cock your head at Elendr.

Keriddwen stifles a yawn.

Pyrocite says, "A jackal, really."

Pyrocite glances at Tierus.

Elendr glances at you.

Tierus says, "An' ye are like a wart on a nose, woman o' Sheru."

Tierus glances at Sheka.

The arctic fox raises its ears.

Jacinto grins evilly.

Sheka's Eorgina amulet emits a soft grey glow.

You ask, "well?"

The arctic fox turns away, looks back over its shoulder once, and then pads off.

You cock your head at Elendr.

Strayla stares off into space.

Tierus says, "Ugly, an' quite clearly present nae matter 'ow people try tae get rid o' ye."

Sheka says, "Server of Eorgina."

Roelon starts chortling.

Alyxandrah glances at Elendr.

Arianiss says, "Yfa was slaughtered herself."

Jacinto says, "The random death was a bit dull."

You ask, "I saw nine undead halfling mages, aye?"

Sheka says, "Just one."

Sheka nods to Pyrocite.

Arianiss asks, "Did you forget that?"

Jacinto nods to Elendr.

You ask, "So ye are all?"

You ask, "All nine?"

Alyxandrah says, "We saw you all be cast out by Thurfel."

Alyxandrah nods to Elendr.

Linora shifts her weight.

You ask, "that is my question, Elendr?"

Xulia whispers, "Is Elendr gone mad?!"

Robinblood shifts his weight.

(Tierus turns the jade over in his hands, eyes staring out into nothingness.)

Sheka rubs a huge charred skull.

You scoff at Elendr.

You say, "Rather sorry response."

Robinblood says, "He has no answer"

Elendr says, "Leave us in peace. We are tired."

Robinblood says, "As well you should be"

Xulia stares at Eugenides.

Elendr sways back and forth.

Xulia glances at Sheka.

You say, "I don't understand why a question is so difficult to answer for one so powerful."

Eugenides seems to be trying to figure out how to turn a huge charred skull.

(Alyxandrah slaps Elendr across the face.)

Sheka stares at Xulia.

Elendr blinks.

Sheka asks, "What?"

Robinblood glances at Alyxandrah.

(Eugenides begins to silently mumble to himself.)

Elendr exclaims, "We asked you to leave us in peace. Now Leave!"

Elendr glares.

Xulia stares at Elendr.

The lich gestures at Alyxandrah. Alyxandrah begins to flicker and fade, a look of agony etched upon her face. A moment later, she simply winks out of sight.

Sheka says, "Do not be going into a trance over it."

Sheka glowers darkly at Eugenides.

Ilvane blinks.

Aranrhod flails her arms about.

Strayla gestures at Elendr.
CS: +402 - TD: +179 + CvA: -9 + d100: +8 - -5 == +227
Warding failed!
His eyes flash with a searing jolt of light!
He is badly stunned!

You exclaim, "Alyx!"

Arimantis blinks.

Robinblood says, "Bring her back"

Sheka cackles!

Pyrocite gestures.
Pyrocite suddenly disappears.

Jacinto grins at Elendr.

Strayla says, "Leave him."

Zacciwie just arrived.

Roelon says, "Elendr...yir in there.."

Arianiss gestures at Elendr.
Holy water sprays forth and cleanses Elendr!
A large splash of water drenches Elendr from head to toe!

Strayla says, "I told him I would."

Roelon asks, "Ye let the lich do this?"

Arianiss gestures at Elendr.
An aura of bright red surrounds Elendr then fades as quickly as it came.

Elendr laughs softly, trying to hide his amusement.

Arianiss mutters under his breath.

Eugenides furrows his brow, his face tensed in some inner conflict.

Sheka glances at you.

Roelon squints.

Sheparde asks, "What on earth is goin on?"

Eugenides moves to stand behind Tierus.

Arimantis moves to stand in front of Ilvane.

Robinblood says, "Your actions do far less then what words would to solve this situation"

Xulia slowly empties her lungs.

Draques nods to Xulia.

Elendr sighs sadly.

Aranrhod peers quizzically at Elendr.

Arimantis squints at Elendr.

Sheka says, "You also should accept the one within you."

Strayla says, "I will carry it out now Elendr."

Sheka nods to you.

Jacinto glares at Elendr.

Strayla gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Strayla gestures into the air.
Strayla momentarily gets a faroff look in her eyes, and then returns to normal.

Xulia glances at Sheka.

(Tierus mutters out a soft prayer, often repeating the word 'Yfa.')

Yaku sighs.

Ilvane glances at Tierus.

Xulia mutters stupidly.

Lady Strayla just went out.

Ilvane hauls off and slaps Tierus up'side his head!

Keriddwen yawns.

Elendr exclaims, "Leave now! What more must we say to you to leave us in bloody peace!"

Yaku says, "Tierus..."

You concentrate on the Locate Person spell...
You gesture into the air.
Your vision begins to become murky and clouded. You have a sensation of rapidly passing distance.
Eventually your sight begins to clear and a vision of Alyxandrah's surroundings fills your mind...
...[Icemule Trace, North Road]
...The air takes on a definite chill here. To the north, you can see the gleam of sunshine reflecting off ice, and it seems the road is headed straight into the glacier. To the north and east, the Temple rises above the city on a hill of ice, watching over the city and shining like a polished crystal.
...Also here: Alyxandrah
...Obvious paths: north, south.

Elendr glares.

Sheparde asks, "There be people possessed by somethin?"

Alyxandrah just arrived.

Keriddwen laughs!

Xulia exclaims, "Tell us wha yew want!"

Yaku says, "remember Xeldria"

Roelon says, "Find another place to rest."

Lady Strayla just arrived.

Jacinto says, "It is their town."

Keriddwen says, "bloody peace how appropriate"

Ilvane asks, "Why do you deserve peace?"

You try to pull Alyxandrah towards you.

Jacinto nods to Elendr.

Ilvane glances at Elendr.

Xulia gawks at Alyxandrah.

The lich gestures at Tierus. Tierus begins to flicker and fade, a look of agony etched upon his face. A moment later, he simply winks out of sight.

Alyxandrah says, "I won't kill you because that's the first time I was sent there today."

Roelon says, "And we will leave ye be."

Alyxandrah nods to Elendr.

Arianiss says, "Your talk about Xeldria is annoying me."

Eugenides mutters something better left unheard.

Xulia flails her arms about.

Yaku sighs.

Arimantis asks, "No one invited you.. why don't you just leave?"

Strayla squints.

Arimantis stares at Elendr.

Robinblood says, "I find it strange you seek peace when you violate ours"

Yaku looks over at Jacinto and shakes his head.

Yaku says, "never go on coincidences."

A wave of power flows out of Strayla and toward Elendr who is surrounded by a soft white light.

(Eugenides tilts his head to the side, a vacant look in his eyes.)

Xulia stares at Strayla.

Strayla glowers.

Sheka says, "Hmmmm...it can't be Yfa.....she was kissing Tierus earlier"

Aranrhod says, "Maybe Tierus will love a little less now"

Ilvane snaps her fingers at Elendr.

Alyxandrah says, "Yfa kisses every man she comes across."

Aranrhod says, "I do not think it is Yfa"

Zacciwie says, "erm"

Elendr says, "This is the place where we rest. It is quiet, until you came. But I grow weary of the games you play."

Jacinto slowly empties his lungs.

Sheka gags.

Zacciwie gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Xulia nods to Alyxandrah.

You say, "I did not think peace was part of yer mindset, one of the Nine."

Alyxandrah asks, "Remember the man in the tavern?"

Jacinto glares at Elendr.

Sheka says, "Poor Yfa"

You cock your head at Elendr.

Sheka smirks.

Ilvane says, "Snap out of it."

Lord Haxley just arrived.

Galenok says, "Good thing I haven't met Yfa then"

Haxley blinks.

Xulia says, "Uses em is wha Yfa does."

Ilvane says, "This is our temple, not yours.."

Ilvane nods to Elendr.

Arianiss asks, "What are your plans for Icemule?"

Sheka says, "It is everyones Temple"

(Eugenides slowly lowers himself to one knee.)

Alyxandrah says, "That wench Yfa knows no better."

Haxley nods to Draques.

Sheka glares at Ilvane.

Eugenides kneels down.

Roelon shifts his weight.

Arimantis asks, "If you are to be free.. you can go anywhere you wish. Why insist on here.. where you aren't wanted?"

Jacinto moves into a defensive posture, ready to fend off an attack.

You hear the voice of Pyrocite say, "She has it right. That's what they're for, Xulia."

Roelon sighs.

Roelon shakes his head.

Xulia grins slowly.

Elendr snarls menacingly!

Xulia clasps her hand over her mouth.

Yaku says, "jac..."

Ilvane asks, "Remember when you did something that was good for all, when you wanted equal representation..as it should be for balance?"

Ilvane glances at Elendr.

Strayla glances at Elendr.

Jacinto says, "It might get bad, bud."

Jacinto nods to Yaku.

Eugenides says, "I suggest, you do what he asks."

Yaku says, "i noticed."

Yaku says, "i toldja...never go on coincidences"

Yaku looks over at Jacinto and shakes his head.

Elendr growls ferociously!

Elendr trembles with rage.

Ilvane asks, "Remember before you got sucked in with your lust for power?"

Lady Opalina just arrived.

Yaku says, "i knew it was one of em"

Strayla says, "I suggest it does what we ask."

Ilvane glances at Elendr.

Sheka squints at a huge charred skull.

Ilvane asks, "Do you?"

Alyxandrah says, "Elendr, calm yourself."

A cloud of dense silvery fog suddenly appears. The fog quickly dissipates to reveal Ravonprayer.

Sheka put a huge charred skull in her black velvet cloak.

Eugenides slowly empties his lungs.

Zacciwie squints.

Alyxandrah says, "So nice of you to join us, Father."

Roelon says, "Careful..."

Alyxandrah stares off into space.

Xulia exclaims, "I'm so confused'd!"

Roelon nods to Alyxandrah.

Zacciwie says, "annoying undead"

Zacciwie stamps his feet.

You ask, "I have felt this anger... And yet ye speak of peace?"

Xulia grumbles.

You cock your head at Elendr.

Pyrocite suddenly fades into view.

Ravonprayer leans on Alyxandrah.

Alyxandrah just kissed Ravonprayer on the cheek.

Jacinto says, "Peace'd work."

Sheka says, "He is at peace with his acceptance."

Robinblood says, "Peace, rage. You can't have both"

Ravonprayer asks, "What is wrong? Him being bad again?"

Sheka nods to you.

Ilvane says, "All you had to do was stop..stop going after the power.."

Ravonprayer glances at Elendr.

Jacinto says, "If you weren't supposed to be dead."

Ilvane nods to Elendr.

Jacinto nods to Elendr.

Sheka says, "As you would be"

Alyxandrah says, "Aye."

Elendr folds his arms over his chest.

Elendr closes his eyes for a moment.

Arimantis paces back and forth.

Alyxandrah says, "Let him rest a moment..."

Alyxandrah touches one finger to her lips.

Ravonprayer says, "He reeks of perfume."

Ravonprayer nods to Alyxandrah.

Sheparde glances at Pyrocite.

Alyxandrah says, "His new fetish."

Alyxandrah winks at Ravonprayer.

Arianiss says, "It's easy to talk about, not going after the power, when you've never had a taste of it."

Ilvane says, "You didn't have to be put away..had you just stopped."

Pyrocite nods to Sheparde.

Sheka says, "That is one bad side effect"

Pyrocite glances at Elendr.

Roelon shifts his weight.

Sheka nods to Ravonprayer.

Sheka smirks.

Roelon squints at Elendr.

Alyxandrah sits down.

Pyrocite babbles something unintelligible.

Ilvane says, "'They just got greedy."

Pyrocite gazes heavenward.

Arimantis nods to Ilvane.

Alyxandrah rubs Elendr gently.

Strayla stretches.

Yaku says, "damned fool wagglers, always after more power."

Zacciwie snorts.

Pyrocite begins to twitch.

Jacinto nods to Yaku.

(Elendr takes a deep breath, lowering his head slightly and stands as still as a block of granite.)

Pyrocite glances at Yaku.

Ravonprayer says, "It smells like... myrrh and rosemary. What a horrible combination."

Roelon squints.

Yaku glances at Pyrocite.

Sheparde points at Elendr.

Sheparde peers quizzically at Pyrocite.

Sheka sniffs at Elendr.

Pyrocite says, "Careful of whom you offend."

Alyxandrah smiles at Yaku.

Lord Haxley just went out.

Yaku says, "some things aren't to be meddled with"

Pyrocite nods to Sheparde.

Roelon shakes his head.

Alyxandrah says, "You wouldn't want a waggler to send billions of bits of you all over the temple."

Alyxandrah winks at Yaku.

Xulia blinks.

Ilvane glances at Elendr.

Ilvane paces back and forth.

Roelon grins.

Arimantis says, "Wouldn'ta had any troubles in the first place.. ifin the council had stuck to simply wantin an equal say."

Robinblood cringes.

Ilvane nods to Arimantis.

Jacinto says, "We've dealt with such before. We cope."

Yaku says, "and prove how much power they have? who cares, this is what this is all about anyway."

Aranrhod sighs.

Jacinto grins at Alyxandrah.

Ilvane says, "Exactly..the greed was what got them."

Sheka says, "I wouldn't mind seeing that happen to him."

Alyxandrah says, "What's done is done..."

Sheka glances at Yaku.

Alyxandrah just touched Elendr.

Yaku says, "who's got the bigger spellwagglin finger"

Sheka nods to Alyxandrah.

Ravonprayer says, "Oh, bother. Tierus just popped out of his exile, and is bleeding."

Ravonprayer mutters under his breath.

Yaku stares off into space.

Ravonprayer gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Ravonprayer gestures into the air.
A silvery fog coalesces around Ravonprayer, obscuring his form. When the fog dissipates, Ravonprayer is gone.

You concentrate on the Locate Person spell...
You gesture into the air.
Your vision begins to become murky and clouded. You have a sensation of rapidly passing distance.
Eventually your sight begins to clear and a vision of Tierus's surroundings fills your mind...
...[Snowflake Vale, Forest]
...Cold mist rises from a wide, reed-fringed pond. Only the edges of the pond are completely frozen. A trail leads southwest, accessible only by stepping carefully along the frozen edges of the pond. You also see a hobgoblin and a blue lace agate.
...Also here: Ravonprayer, Lord Tierus
...Obvious paths: southeast.

Draques whispers, "Where did Mister Tierus come out?"

Elendr grits his teeth.

Arianiss shows Elendr his serpent talisman.

Xulia gives her spider monkey toy a warm hug.

Elendr exclaims, "Enough of this!"

Ilvane glances at Arianiss.

You glance at Arianiss.

Xulia frets.

Arimantis says, "But.. now that they have proven ta be greedly lil wagglers.. they weren't wanted, an aren't wanted."

Elendr just went southeast.

Alyxandrah stands up.

Galenok clasps Xulia's hand tenderly.

Jacinto's group just went southeast.

Robinblood blinks.

[Hall of the Rivals]
Tension fills the air in this octagonal chamber. Two ice statues of women, both beautiful beyond belief, stand at opposite sides of the room. The one to the east bears a plaque with "The Huntress" enscribed on it. She seems to watch the statue at the west, which has a plaque enscribed with "Arachne" set into the base. Upon the eight walls are scenes of different colors that seem to tell a story, beginning with a wall tinted purple. Two altars, one red and one black, sit in the center of the room.
Also in the room: Yaku, Jacinto
Obvious exits: northwest, down.

Lady Sheka just went down.

You concentrate on the Locate Person spell...
You gesture into the air.
Your vision begins to become murky and clouded. You have a sensation of rapidly passing distance.
Eventually your sight begins to clear and a vision of Elendr's surroundings fills your mind...
...[Hall of the Dark]
...Almost no light from the surface reaches this room. What does, comes from the walls in a sickly grey glow, sending chills down your spine that have nothing to do with the cold in the air. Two altars, gold to the south and grey to the west, relieve the black in the room, and detailed murals grace the walls behind them.
...Also in the room: Elendr
...Obvious exits: up.

Lady Ilvane's group just went down.
Zacciwie just went down.
Lord Roelon just went down.
Jacinto's group just went down.
Lady Opalina just went down.

You concentrate on the Transference spell...
You gesture into the air.
A silvery fog envelops you. You feel a sudden lurching motion, and as the fog dissipates you see...

[Hall of the Dark]
Almost no light from the surface reaches this room. What does, comes from the walls in a sickly grey glow, sending chills down your spine that have nothing to do with the cold in the air. Two altars, gold to the south and grey to the west, relieve the black in the room, and detailed murals grace the walls behind them.
Also in the room: Lord Roelon, Yaku, Jacinto, Zacciwie, Arimantis, Lady Ilvane, Lady Sheka, Alyxandrah, Elendr
Obvious exits: up.

Elendr sits down.

Arimantis gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Robinblood just arrived.

Yaku says, "fitting"

Lady Opalina just arrived.

Sheka glances at a grey altar.

You ask, "why come ye here?"

Roelon glances at Elendr.

You hear the voice of Pyrocite say, "You will not defile my Lord's shrine."

Roelon asks, "Elendr...?"

You cock your head at Elendr.

Alyxandrah shudders.

Jacinto fiddles with his haon instrument case before lifting the latch and flipping the cover open.

Sheka cocks her head at Elendr.

Zacciwie says, "and i forgot my flowers"

Jacinto says, "Hey, lich."

Zacciwie snaps his fingers.

Ilvane just touched a faceted black diamond Ronan symbol.

Sheka asks, "Why come you here?"

Arimantis paces back and forth.

Pyrocite suddenly fades into view.

A disembodied, floating eye enters the room.

Aranrhod just arrived.

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched.
The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

Jacinto says, "Listen to Cholen's cittern's song."

Jacinto removes a polished amber-hued fel cittern painted with brilliant cerulean swashes from in his haon instrument case.

The iris in the floating eye suddenly expands.

Pyrocite glances at a gold altar.

With a slow lead-in, Jacinto begins a gentle ballad on his cittern.

Elendr hugs his knees and sways side to side.

Arimantis asks, "Couldn't we have this talk.. um.. anywheres else?"

Sheka says, "Not in here."

An arctic wolf pads into the room.

Sheka glares at Jacinto.

There is a twinkle in an arctic wolf's eyes.
The arctic wolf begins to watch the goings on carefully.

Pyrocite scowls.

Blyton just arrived.

Roelon ponders.

Yaku stares off into space.

Elendr says, "There is nothing to speak about. We asked to leave us in peace."

Pyrocite runs her hand softly over the surface of her crimson glaes symbol. A crimson glow surrounds the symbol as its surface shimmers for a moment with the image of a black jackal's head on a field of gold.

Roelon leans forward.

Lady Strayla just arrived.

Opalina searches around for a moment.

Arimantis asks, "Worried Sheru mights ban yer service too?"

Arimantis begins chuckling at Sheka.

A disembodied eye zips past you and heads straight for Strayla who casually snatches it out of the air with a sticky splat sound. Without hesitation, Strayla pushes her elusive peeper back into her eye socket. With a few blinks it seems to function properly once again.
Strayla wipes some icky residue from her face and smiles.

Yaku says, "Jac...put the instrument away my boy."

Strayla rubs her eyes.

Jacinto lazily bridges into another key, the melody of his song as gentle as a drowsy stream flowing through a quiet forest.

Sheka hurls an especially vitriolic spasm of oaths in Arimantis's direction, probably managing to offend the gods if not Arimantis.

Jacinto raises an eyebrow.

Pyrocite says, "Find your peace elsewhere, the shadows rule here."

Elendr stands up.

Pyrocite glances at Elendr.

You ask, "Ye attacked us! That is peace?"

Robinblood asks, "But we ask the same request, and do you oblige us?"

Eugenides just arrived.

You blink at Elendr.

Elendr just went up.

The arctic wolf looks upward negligently.
The arctic wolf suddenly acquires a look of mission.

[Hall of Those Outside]
The feeling that you are being watched slowly creeps over you. While you notice the man depicted on the west wall studying you, you cannot help but feel that there is something more. Glancing upwards, you realize that a mural has been created on the ceiling, and golden eyes look at you from there. A grey altar sits before the west wall, and a red altar rests in the center of the room.
Also in the room: Alyxandrah
Obvious exits: northeast, down.

...[Icemule Trace, Forest]
...Snow crunches beneath your feet as you walk along the narrow path through the forest. The air is cold and crisp, and filled with the sharp scent of pine. Startled by your approach, an owl takes flight from the cover of a nearby tree. It passes so close you feel the rush of air from its wings. You also see a crystal gate.
...Also here: Elendr
...Obvious paths: south, east.

Aranrhod just arrived.

Lady Opalina just went northeast.

Aranrhod sighs.

Lady Strayla just arrived.

Aranrhod just went northeast.

[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 also see a floating eye that is flying around.
Also in the room: Lady Strayla, Arimantis, Lady Ilvane, Draques, Keriddwen, Arianiss
Obvious exits: west, northwest, southeast, out.

Keriddwen says, "well tis folly to expect anything from Elendr now"
