Ebonie Joins The Chosen

( Half of this log was provided by Aslan and is from her point of view.)

Your faith is drawn upon to maintain this sanctuary.

Cordir remains still, her eyes closed.
Cordir extends her arms out slightly, and a strange wind rises.

Beneath your feet, the Sigil Draktha stirs.
Its color shifts from red and black, to a bluish hue...
Soon, it matches the Lady's aura perfectly... taking strength from her.

Cordir opens her eyes slowly.
Cordir says, 'We meet here at the Sigil for many reasons. To retouch our Triat Faith..'.

Your faith is drawn upon to maintain this sanctuary.

Cordir says, 'To help strengthen the Ward... And to show courage - for the journey - like life - is difficult.'.

Ebonie nods.

Cordir says, 'Will you descend into N'Kai, and speak of your Quest to join the Chosen?'.

Cordir gestures downward through the glowing Sigil.
Cordir leaves down.

Cave Conjoining N'Kai
[Exits: north]
You are below the Sigil Draktha, near N'Kai the Black. You have no escape but to go onward, for the Barrier seals you within here just as forcefully as it does the Spawn. Bones lie scattered about, strewn above a dried pool of blood.

A Message has been scrawled on the bloody floor.
(Light Cyan Aura) Tien is here.
(Intense Light Cyan Aura) Cordir is here.

Noctus appears out of nowhere.
Ebonie appears out of nowhere.

Cordir nods.

Ebonie says, 'If it is my way to go, yes, i shal'.

Cordir says, 'Welcome to N'Kai.'.

Noctus didn't prepare the room yet..so he quickly lights the candles.

Cordir ftells, 'whomeber is her sponsor, please step forward and present her to the Chosen.'.

Noctus steps forward.
Noctus says, 'I noctus, Chosen Blade of Fate'
Noctus says, 'Would like to introduce my very good friend Ebonie to all of you'. Noctus beams a smile at Ebonie.

Cordir nods.

Ebonie smiles happily.

Cordir says, 'welcome.'.
Cordir says, 'And Noctus, do you present her, as one that you stand in Sponsorship of?'.

Ebonie bows deeply.

Noctus says, 'I certainly do'.

Cordir nods.

Noctus says, 'She has the sparkle in her eyes'.
Noctus says, 'That can only be found among Chosen'.

Cordir smiles quietly.
Cordir nods once.
Cordir says, 'I see that you have reached more than ten circles of advancement which fulfills a second requirement.'.

Ebonie nods.

Cordir withdraws a parchment from her sleeve, and unties the silk cord that binds it. Cordir unrolls the scroll, and re-reads it quickly, nodding.
Cordir says, 'I have received the tale of your life, Ebonie, and find it pleasing. I enjoyed your words of hope for the future. But was a bit ... overwhelmed ... by your words of faith in me.'.

Ebonie blushes.

Cordir says, 'I am not certain I can fill the expectations you seem to have of me.But was very touched. '

Cordir rolls the parchment back up, reties the cord, and puts the scroll away.

Cordir says, 'Ebonie, have you spent a year and a day helping the young?'.

Cordir ftells, 'Would the three of you be ready to help summon the Guardian?'.
Noctus ftells, 'ofcourse'.
Cordir ftells, 'I'll give you the cue in a sec.'.
Noctus ftells, 'nod'.
You ftell, '*nod*'.

Ebonie says, 'I help the young as often as I am able, My lady'.
Ebonie says, 'The exact times I am not sure of'.

Cordir says, 'Would you name one whom you have aided '.

Ebonie says, 'I remember not their names, My Lady.'.

Cordir nods in recognition to Tien.
Noctus waves goodbye to Tien.

Cordir frowns slightly.

You wave goodbye to Tien.
Noctus says, 'Take care Tien'.
Tien bows deeply.
You say, 'later, Tien :)'.

Noctus says, 'Not a problem'.

Cordir says, 'Tien, be well.'.
Tien says, 'ayyw yyyf lgynuu'.
Cordir says, 'May the Three ward you.'.
Tien says, 'yerf :f'.

Tien utters the words, 'word of recall'.
Tien invokes recall magic.
Tien is wrested from the room!

Cordir steps through the Pattern Web, disappearing from the chamber.

Noctus ftells, 'you ok Tien?'.
Tien ftells, 'yes, thank you lady'.

Ebonie smiles at you.

A glimmering light appears, and expands into a shining web-like Pattern before you.
Cordir steps quietly into the room, almost unnoticed but for the glimmer around her. The Pattern fades into motes of light, scattered about the chamber.

You smile at her.

Tien ftells, 'be back later'.
Cordir ftells, 'be well'.

Cordir says, 'Forgive the interruption, please.'.

Ebonie nods.

Ebonie says, 'Forgiven of course, My Lady.'.

Noctus thinks deeply.

Cordir ftells, 'Noctus, then Aslan, then Ordeith.... please RP asking Guardian to arrive.'.

Noctus is suddenly surrounded by blue smoke.
Noctus utters the words, 'gjwwai'.

You hear a soft snarl from the darkness.

Noctus is surrounded by red smoke now.
Noctus utters the words, 'gjwwai'.

* Do you think yourself strong enough to demand my presence with your spells, Blade? *

Noctus sees the two clouds of smoke around him mix together as one midnight-cyan cloud.
Noctus says, 'I do now dear Guardian'.
Noctus utters the words, 'gjwwai'.

Something stirs in the darkness all around you.

Cordir ftells, 'Your turn, Aslan'.

Aslan steps forward and kneels down in the cave.
Aslan murmurs some words, asking the presence of the Guardian.

Eight lights appear above you.

Ordeith queitly stands up and backs away.

Something shifts against the walls beside you, and the ceiling far above.
A monstrously huge figure descends..
It is the largest black widow spider you have ever imagined in your worst nightmares.. And you realize you have been standing beneath her, this entire time...

You ftell, '*sigh* Suppertime..'.

Noctus cringes in terror!

Her legs surrounding the entire group, her body blocking out the ceiling.

Ebonie gasps in astonishment.

Cordir ftells, 'take care, Aslan'.
Noctus ftells, 'Take care Aslan, enjoy'.

Aslan disappears suddenly.
