The Best Gift...

12/29/99, at approximately 10:10 am, pst
The Chat Room [Exits: none]
You are in a small, spacious hall. Well-worn overstuffed black leather couches against the walls match the armchairs that circle the fountain in the center of the room. Plump dark red, blue and purple cushions on the seating and a warmly glowing sphere of light floating near the ceiling lend a cozy element to the timeless atmosphere of this doorless hall.

A small white fountain gushes forth here.
(Blue Aura) Tynian is here.
(Purple Aura) Elladan is here.
(Purple Aura) Tamar is here.

Cordir steps quietly into the room, almost unnoticed but for the glimmer around her.
Within The Tapestry of Fate [Exits: north]
Stepping through the spider-web, you find yourself standing beneath countless stars... no, not stars, but strands of light, their incandescent glow pushing back the darkness that would otherwise overcome you.

You stand on a circular cathedra of dusky marble striated with silvery gray. Four titanic, equidistantly spaced archways of albescent jade yearn upward towards the lights above you. Sable fires seethe within three of them, a spider-web filling the fourth. In the center of the rostrum stands an intricately carved wooden loom. It is cool here, like the first misty chill of
twilight, and you shiver slightly, hair prickling on the back of your neck as you realize: Perhaps this is no place for a mortal to be.
The Loom of the Weaver is here, coruscating with an unearthly radiance.
