Myre Joins The Chosen

A Moonlit Garden
[Exits: down]

You stand quietly in the midst of a nearly silent garden, afraid to move. This is clearly no normal, natural place. Lit only by the oddly shimmering light of a full silver moon, this tiny glade is no more than twenty paces across, and a still, unmoving pool of water is its silent heart. The trees all around are hung with intricate spiders' webs. None by itself is sturdier than any ordinary web, but the layers upon layers of them combine to seal you off entirely from the world outside. There is no more than a hint of breeze, and the leaves rustling overhead are a barely heard subliminal murmur. The air is strange; somehow, everything seems to be rippling slightly, and a thousand subtle scents drift by your nose and are gone again. This garden, you realize, is not real. Perhaps it is waiting to be real, or perhaps it once was, or perhaps it is beyond such things as real and not-real altogether... A pattern, a place, an idea, that you are holding in your mind for a few moments, and nothing more.
(Hide) A distressingly large, shiny black spider weaves webs here.

You say, 'We usually gather at the Sigil Draktha'.

Myre nods.

You say, 'And we do so for many reasons - the Sigil stands as a ward between the darkness of N'kai'.

You say, 'and the world above ... just as the Chosen of Fate stand between the darkness and the world.'.

Myre nods.

You say, 'The Sigil is weakening... and our oaths and faith give it strength to continue that journey.'.

You say, 'N'Kai itself is a place of great danger'.

Ebonie nods.

You say, 'a testing grounds of body and spirit and determination.'.

Myre nods.

You say, 'It was created by the First Prophet..'.
You say, 'Do you know whom that was?'.

Myre shakes his head.

You say, 'And that is why the entry quest to the Chosen is so difficult.'.
