Within The Tapestry of Fate [Exits: north up]
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 shadows twist and shift before your sight, like a midnight fog touched
by a light breeze. There is something out there, a deep purple glow, that
seems to float about. Ah, yes... you can make it out now. Its a sprite,
but how can she be moving and sitting at the same ti- She is sitting upon
a shoulder... a very darkly clad shoulder. Your gaze slides up to where
you know the face must be, and is met by piercing grey eyes. Ebon strands
dance within them, forming and reforming - a web, a sigil, a name forever
lost...
There is only one person this can be...
Nyx has a special twinkle in his eye.
Nyx is in perfect health.

Nyx nods in recognition to Cordir.
Nyx says (in common), 'Chosen, we gather this evening for several purposes...'
Nyx says (in common), 'However, firstly, I ask Guardian to appear, and release one from Geasa that have been honored and fulfilled...'
From upon the spiderwebs to the north, Guardian creeps.
The spider slowly moves to stand among you.
You hear Guardian's voice in your mind: * Cordir An-Shalach, stand forth *
Cordir steps forward, and bows.
Bastian bites his lip.
You hear Guardian's voice in your mind: * A geas you broke. A life you took. Contrition sought. *
Cordir nods silently.
You hear Guardian's voice in your mind: * Three Geasa bound you, for three times three days. *
Cordir nods silently.
You hear Guardian's voice in your mind: * Is there any here who can offer word that these Geasa were not honored? *

Kalee nods.
Nyx steps forward slightly.
Boromir nods.
Nyx says (in common), 'The Lady acted in more than words required... Not asking that items be held for when She could again take them... Or even...'
Nyx pauses, not sure how much of what he knows should be revealed.
Cordir nods silently, trusting.
Nyx says (in common), 'She turned away all offers, even when the Weaver tested Her... Not simply the items that some would define as "offerings.".'
Nyx bows slightly, and steps back.
Cordir colors slightly.
You hear Guardian's voice in your mind: * Kalee... speak *
Kalee says (in common), 'I too saw that she turned down offers of items to be sacrificed in her name.'
Bastian nods.
You hear Guardian's voice in your mind: * Bastian... speak *
Bastian winces slightly at the voice in his mind.
Bastian says (in common), 'I h.'
Bastian says (in common), 'have witnessed the Lady's vow of silence several times, even spoke for her once.'
Bastian ftells, 'and I must depart I'm.. afraid.'
Kalee nods in recognition to Bastian.
Bastian bows deeply.
The Web Guardian turns and gazes at each in turn.
Kalee hugs Bastian. Kalee waves happily.
Garvax waves happily. Khorlan waves happily.
Bastian leaves north.
The Web Guardian dips its thorax in a bow. * Very well. Cordir, you are Un-Bound. *

Garvax smiles happily.
Boromir smiles happily.
Khorlan explodes with happiness, you wipe a part of him off your cheek.
Cordir says, 'We have much to discuss and do this evening, Chosen.'
Khorlan reassembles himself.
