[Icemule Trace, Ice Garden]
Alpine flowerbeds ring this tucked-away courtyard, their bright colors a feast for the eyes in comparison to the white of all the snow that lies beyond the gate. Tamped snow paths keep footsteps soft in this small haven as travellers make their way to and from the chambers north of here. Centered in a bed of white edelweiss and aromatic purple-flowered calamintha is an ice fountain, its watery spray frozen in a sparkling plume. You also see the Joter disk and a wrought-iron gate.

look aslakian
The thing before you may have been a halfling at one time, but only traces of its racial lineage remain. Its face is twisted and distorted, the flesh sickly and mottled.

A bright light surrounds you and your visions of sanctuary slowly fade...

[Icemule Trace, Ice Garden]
Alpine flowerbeds ring this tucked-away courtyard, their bright colors a feast for the eyes in comparison to the white of all the snow that lies beyond the gate. Tamped snow paths keep footsteps soft in this small haven as travellers make their way to and from the chambers north of here. Centered in a bed of white edelweiss and aromatic purple-flowered calamintha is an ice fountain, its watery spray frozen in a sparkling plume. You also see a wrought-iron gate.

[Temple Burrow, Oleani Way]
Pieces of ice dot the street and one yard sports a small, carrot-nosed snowman. To the north looms the glacier, above the dwellings on the streets, with the Temple sitting atop it. Carved from the ice, the Temple gleams in the sun, giving those that live here an impressive view. You also see a snow-covered stone path and a wrought-iron gate.

[Temple Burrow, Oleani Way]
Small houses line the road, painted in a riot of bright colors. The dwellings follow no set plan, some with one story, others with two. Halflings wander down the road, waving to each other and stopping to converse. One halfling stands on a ladder, carefully touching up the paint on his roof while his wife looks on, giving orders.

Obvious paths: north, east, west.

Amby removes a monir-hafted golvern morning star from in her dwarven war harness.

[White Owl Table]
A snowy white linen tablecloth blankets the table. Three cut-crystal votives shimmer at the center of the table, casting a flickering, icy gleam. Silvery lace ribbons are strewn casually across the table, as though left-over from a party. Also in the room: Vonka, Lady Libble, Amby, Starkly, Aranrhod, Kalynna
Obvious exits: out.

Kalynna says, "I dun know whar it's safe"

Flames incinerate right arm to the bone. Not a pleasant sight.
He is stunned!
The air swirling around Starkly fans the flames!

You say, "Seems not."

The Symbol of Thought begins to burn in your mind and you hear Atoyoz thinking, "Are you okay M'lady?"

Rayzinark says, "Craven cowards, the lot of them, striking from hiding, afraid of their own shadows."

You turn to face Kadesha.

Hhooru asks, "Vonka. Who is yer mama?"

Mnar says, "For example, if you were to utter a trite and predictable quip about death and destruction, I would rightly assume that it is not Vonka talking."

(Vonka turns her eyes to Kadesha. They are round, showing the whites around the pupils.)

Juspera asks, "If I try to touch her, will she bite me?"
