l tranquility
Her light gray wings folded about her like an exotic cloak, Serenity meets your gaze unflinchingly. Her petite form is well-made, though deceptively delicate looking,
and garbed in a light covering of mottled, then banded, gray feathers. Her eyes, as they meet yours, are a hauntingly dark color, deeper than that of her pinions, and seem to hold secrets unknown to humankind. Secrets of the air, secrets of the sky, secrets known only to she and her kind.

She mantles her wings for a moment, seeking a more comfortable position. In doing so, a Glowing Ward is revealed upon the strong muscles of her right wing. Her eyes follow yours, and she nods, acknowledging your comprehension. "My oath to The Chosen... to Fate... and to the Lady Weaver." She touches one clawed fingertip to the Covernant and smiles as the glow intensifies. "Far i have to go on my path... but no longer alone."

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 is using:

Tranquility says (in old-common), "There is no dishonor in failing a Trial - only in not attempting it.

Adso nods.

You say (in old-common), 'I swear I do with all my heart'.

Cordir gestures, and deep within the fire-cast shadows of the Temple, something stirs.

Something...very big. And dark. With many legs that stretch forth one by one, chitinous black.

An enormous spider creeps from the ebon flames, easily towering over all of those present.

The spider dips its thorax in a deep bow before the Immortals present

Boromir ftells, 'Bye Nyx *wave* '.

You nod.

Clue ftells, 'farewell, Shadow'.
Tirayel ftells, 'Bye Shadow :)'.

Cordir gestures and in a swirl of smoke and shadow, the image of a serpent biting its own tail appears.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'In the Name of the Wyrm, for Growth and Self-Knowledge:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'First: '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'You are bid seek out the sacred places, and make them one with your heart and well known by your feet. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Second: '.

Tirayel tells you (in old-common), '(I would *love* to help you map... want a tag-along with a note book?'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Directly assist the growth and knowledge of another. Take on an Apprentice. '.

You tell Tirayel (in old-common), 'I'm sure could use one :)'.

Tien nods at himself; he must be getting senile.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'They are your responsibility for the rest of your days, '.

Tirayel beams a smile at Tien.

Tien ftells, 'you cant ditch me now noctus!'.
Tranquility ftells, '*laugh*'.
Alex ftells, 'Sure he can ;)'.
Boromir ftells, '*grin* '.

Cordir nods, and the image of the serpent fades.

Cordir gestures, and from each of the six pits about the temple, a gout of ebon-black flame leaps.

The flames surge forward, flowing out amidst those present.

Brrrrrrrrr.

The flame seems to hover close to a few among the Chosen

The Councilor of War, the Triat Mastery Applicant, a silent Minotaur, and the elven maiden that is his Apprentice.

The flame licks out to caress a few among the Tigers, savoring their essence, acknowledging itself within them.

The flame lingers around Gregar.

Gregar raises an eyebrow.

The six flames swirl about you, tasting your soul and the fire within your own heart.

Finally the ebon fires come together in the center of the Temple, a floating, writhing ball of fiery abstraction.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'In the Name of the Wyld, for Change and Death:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'First:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Review the Anathema and Rabhadh lists. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'and provide a recommendation of anyone who should be removed or moved from one list to another. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Create a third list of "Extraordinary Threats and Newbiekillers".'.

You nod.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'To deserve Newbiekiller status, the person must have attacked a Chosen below 20th level, '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'and one of our allies, the Tigers, below 20th level. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Please work directly with Tripper or one of his Councilors in confirming the attacks on our Allies.'.

Cordir bows before Tripper.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Second: '.

You nod in recognition to her.

Tripper bows before Cordir.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Prepare the way for the Blades of Fate. To successfully hunt, specific tools are of great use. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Obtain six potions or pills each of HEAL, SANCTUARY, and ABSORB. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Learn the location of the various spell-pools, and magical pills, and prepare a list for the Chosen's use. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'This info may be culled both on-line, and off-line through back postings to the Chosen Email list, etc. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'You may have whatever assistance you deem useful in gathering this information.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Third:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Temper yourself in preparation for Ordainment as a Blade of Fate.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'The Blades of Fate shall be a law unto themselves.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Their rights, protections, restrictions, privileges, losses and gains affect not only them as individuals'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'but by the following as a whole. Yet, they alone bear the burden of initiating violence...'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'on Our behalf, for Our well being, for Our protection. They become both Blade and Shield.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'You are bid to work in concert with Adso in authoring the Creed of the Blades.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'When a Blade may attack. How to determine whom to attack. Who must grant approval, etc.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'These are suggestions. I leave the rest to you, but reserve, as always, My absolute veto power.'.

Noctus will take this task very seriously.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Noctus, do you understand these tasks set before you by the Wyld?'.

You say (in old-common), 'I understand them, My Lady'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Noctus, do you _accept_ these tasks?'.

You say (in old-common), 'I accept them as well'.

Cordir nods, and the ball of fire bursts into individual flamelets once more.

The tongues of flame flow outward through those assembled, once more touching all present.

At last, the fires return to their home within the open pits about the Temple.

Cordir bows Her head and pauses a moment, silent.

The Temple goes quite still.

Noctus holds his breath.

Even the fires seem to freeze in place for a moment, as if the world held its breath.

An indigo radiance coalesces around Her, first faint, then bright as a dying star.

Her image shifts - a woman, a Goddess, a dark creature with eight legs, an Incarnation you cannot fully comprehend.

(The goddess gets called AFK a sec to take care of her sick sweetie)

You grin happily.

Alex pats you on your back.

Tranquility giggles.

Noctus will cure disease him.

Gregar does an anti-void dance.

Dazzle comforts Clue.

Alex draws a cold, frosty beer for you.
Tien utters the words, 'sanctuary'.

Plato lets off a real rip-roarer...a greenish cloud envelops Plato!

Tien utters the words, 'sanctuary'.

Adso utters the words, 'detect invis'.

Dazzle utters the words, 'qcandusahz xahzf'.

Gregar tries to talk through a very full mouth.

Tien says (in elven), 'oops'.

Tranquility says (in common), 'oh dear'.

Dazzle drinks water from a bottle of wine.
You say (in old-common), 'any idea how long a log can be?'.

Bliss gasps as she realizes what Plato did.

Gregar burps loudly.

Adso says (in common), 'plato!'.

Dazzle laughs.

Tien utters the words, 'create food'.
A Magic Mushroom suddenly appears.

Dazzle gasps as he realizes what Plato did.

Plato blushes.
Dazzle pokes Plato in the ribs.

Tirayel nods.

Tranquility would comfort Plato, but instead merely runs to the other side of the temple.

Adso utters the words, 'comprehend'.

Tirayel says (in old-common), 'Yes, yes I can...'.

Adso looks around.

Tripper rubs his eyes at the spam visual whiplash.

(Returned.)

Gregar chuckles, evidently amused.

Tirayel will at least get ot delete this block as a whole....

Clue giggles at you. Hope it's not contagious!

Dazzle soon joins Tranquility as---eep! *silent*

Alex ftells, 'lol'.

You grin happily.

Boromir lights a match and looks for an explosion.

Dazzle ftells, 'that was absolute madness'.

Tranquility ftells, '*giggle*'.

Cordir bows Her head and pauses a moment, silent.

Boromir grins happily.

The Temple goes quite still.

Even the fires seem to freeze in place for a moment, as if the world held its breath.

An indigo radiance coalesces around Her, first faint, then bright as a dying star.

Dazzle ftells, 'And Lady Cordir reasserts her possession of the Council Stone. ;)'.

Her image shifts - a woman, a Goddess, a dark creature with eight legs, an Incarnation you cannot fully comprehend.

Tranquility ftells, 'Indeed'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'In the Name of the Weaver, for Perseverance and Teaching:'.

Cordir ftells, 'she gets back from getting abe a thermometer'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'first:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Review the entirety of the Web of Fate - All within this Realm, and sources on the Great Web.'.

Boromir ftells, '*smirk* *imagines Cordir telling abe to 'here stick this.." *'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Glean all of the lore that you can regarding the Triat, and make yourself familiar with all of it. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Take up the responsibilities and duties of High Priest of the Chosen of Fate, '.

Plato ftells, 'hehe'.

Tien ftells, 'lol'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'and commit all Triat Lore to memory or easy reference. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Be prepared to answer questions put to you by anyone of the Triat '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'and its meanings and Incarnations, past revelations, Triat Mastery Quest finalists and questors, etc.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Here is your first and only direct aid on My part in this Trial.'.

Cordir stops using a small ebon-leather bound book.

Cordir gives you a small ebon-leather bound book.

You thank Cordir heartily.

l book
A single, slim volume catches your notice. Bound in black leather, a
strange, moving symbol inscribed upon its cover in orichalcum, this book
is filled with page after page of neatly written poetry on a variety of
topics, from love to loss.. .Flipping to the inside liner, you read,
"Tokugawa: Enjoy - you're the only one who gets a copy, other than my
sister, Jahiliya. May you guide your charges with the same grace and
wisdom you granted the Trinity as Lord Foolkiller's right hand. May the
Weaver bless and ward you, the Wyld remind you to change and grow and the
Wyrm fill your world with enlightenment.. .Fondly, Cordir."

Cordir smiles wryly, saying, 'And do not loose it that book is over a millennia old."

Cordir says (in old-common), 'second:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Perform an act of service for an Enemy, a Friend and a Stranger. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'These acts should necessarily involve great personal danger or sacrifice on your part.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Be prepared to describe what act you performed, for whom, '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'and how that act held true to the codes and dictates of the Chosen of Fate, and the Triat Path.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'What service you perform is your own choice...'.

You nod.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'But what act you choose, is also a part of the Trial and will be considered and reviewed.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Third:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'It is the way of Triat Mastery that the Weaver's Tasks, in particular, demand a personal sacrifice. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'In the past, these demands have included...'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Nyx's shadows....'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Adso's solitude...'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Gregar's pride...'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Noctus, the Weaver demands your retribution and aggression. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'In Specific:'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'To teach the infinite patience a Triat Master and Ordained must have.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'During the span of your Triat Mastery, you must rein in your sense of true and righteous anger.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'If attacked by a fellow adventurer, you may NOT stand and defend, or pursue your attacker. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'You MUST immediately flee and pray, quaff, or speak the words of Recall.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'You may not, in any way, commit or support any act of aggression towards any individual in the Realm. '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'This includes calling for vengeance if you or one you know are attacked.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'You may not initiate aggression against those who are native to this Realm (translation: Mobs)'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'The only exception are those who are naturally aggressive to you,'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'and those who are * directly * threatening the lives of your fellow Chosen, Apprentice, Newbies, or Allies.'.

Brrrrrrrrr.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Note each time you are forced to act on behalf of another (not the aggressive mobs) '.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'and the circumstances of the aggression. A report at the end of your Trial of Mastery will be required.'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Noctus, do you understand these tasks set before you by the Weaver?'.

You say (in old-common), 'I understand them My Lady'.

Cordir says (in old-common), 'Noctus, do you _accept_ these tasks?'.

You say (in old-common), 'Yes, I will gladly accept them'.

Cordir nods, and the unearthly aura about her fades.

Cordir smiles quietly at the Warrior-Priest standing before Her.

You smile at her.

Cordir rises from the Ebon Throne, steps forward and takes Noctus's hands between Her own.

Cordir closes Her eyes for a moment.

Indigo radiance flares around Her hands, which slides down to lick over the Warrior-Priest's hands.

A slight glowing appears upon the gnome's skin, quickly flowing out over his entire body.

Noctus feels the warmth in his body.

A swirling design of Midnight-Cyan, like the movement of moon-lit clouds upon a starry night sky appears.

His Pattern alighting, flaring, changing shape with the impact of the choice just made...

Cordir releases Noctus's hands and steps back, opening Her eyes.

You bow deeply.

The pure indigo light about Her dims and fades, her Pattern concealed once more.

The midnight-cyan light about Noctus dims and fades, his Pattern concealed once more.

Cordir says softly, 'Noctus, I am well pleased by your courage and determination."

Cordir says softly, 'In the name of the Three, I bless your endeavors."

Cordir utters the words, 'fido'.
You feel righteous.

Noctus kneels on one knee and smiles.

Cordir says softly, 'And I charge you to take up this Quest and pursue it to the best of your ability.'

You say (in old-common), 'I thank you My Lady'.

Cordir says softly, 'May the Three guide your steps.'

Cordir glances over at Tranquility and nods.

Tranquility steps forward, her wings closed about her like a formal cloak or ritual garb.

Glycerine smiles happily.

Tranquility smiles quietly, the expression matching one you have seen on her Lady's face many a time.

Tranquility gestures to the room as a whole, including all present.

Tranquility says (in old-common), "By your presence, you grant Noctus your silent support in his endeavors."

Boromir ftells, 'I wish you well .. and offer any help I am allowed ... *bow Noctus* '.

Tirayel looks at Boromir.

Tranquility says (in old-common), "On behalf of all the Chosen, and my Lady, we thank you for your attendance this evening."

You ftell, 'thank you, I will need it'.

Tripper's companion ROARS in Triumph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boromir ftells, '*wry grin* '.

Plato ftells, 'GRATZ!!'.

Tripper cheers you on, confident that you will win.

Tranquility says (in old-common), "Depart this place in peace, and think upon.

Clue cheers you on, confident that you will win.
Glycerine cheers you on, confident that you will win.

Boromir claps at your performance.
Boromir claps at your performance.

Boromir claps at your performance.

Tien cheers you on, confident that you will win.

Tranquility says (in common), 'those things you have witnessed'.
