Two Join The Chosen

End of the Granite Cavern
[Exits: south down]

This is the Last Bore, the tunnel that connected the Plaza to the
black caverns of N'Kai. Stong winds howl here, flowing into small
holes in the ground. The source of the winds is a mystery - there
SHOULDN'T be any wind ... yet it rages like a storm here ...

A Marker Slab has been erected in the center of the room.
The Sigil Draktha floats in the air here, warding the cave below.

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.

Kaldred appears out of nowhere.

n
Cave Before N'Kai
[Exits: north south]
Dwarven bones litter this cave, whistling faintly in a wind
that seems to blow from the north. How there is any wind in
an underground cave is beyond you, but nonetheless, a faint
breeze blows here, piping quietly, signifying N'Kai beyond.

Katrana arrives from the south.
Kaldred arrives from the south.

SOUTH:
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.

You are on Cordir's holy ground!

From around you, a soft mist rises.

Cordir says, 'Holy N'Kai.. The foundation place of the Triat Faith. Herein are mysteries not spoken of outside the Chosen.'.

Tien says (in elven), 'sorry im late, tonight has been really bad for me'.

Cordir says, 'Mysteries first revealed to the Ebon Hand.'.

Cordir says, 'Both of you have cast off prior oaths to be here today.'.

Katrana nods.
Kaldred nods.

Cordir says, 'That is a step of courage... Travelling from the Dark to the Light. You will be reviled for it. And you will be hunted.'.

Katrana nods slowly.

Kaldred says (in common), 'We share the same opinions and beliefs on this matter. Good to know that I'm not alone '.

Kaldred beams a smile at Katrana.
Katrana beams a smile at Kaldred.

Cordir says, 'But you will have fellowship and support during that time. You will never be alone.'.

Katrana nods.

Cordir closes her eyes once again.

A soft rumble touches your senses.
The sound grows...
A thunderous roar...
All around you, the Great Pattern coalesces -
It is the sum of all existance ... lives, places, events, moments...
Within it, two threads gleam brightly, calling to you.

Cordir says, 'You stand at a moment of antinomy... Two choices, equally vital. To take oath, or walk another path. What say you?'.

Katrana says (in common), 'To take oath, m'Lady'.

Kaldred says (in common), 'I wish to take Oath. I know this is my path.'.

Katrana curtseys gracefully.

Cordir nods.

Cordir says, 'Before each who would join the Chosen, is set a Quest. Have each of you served the young for a span of at least a year and a day?'.

Katrana nods.

Cordir says, 'Sponsors have spoken for you both...'.

Kaldred nods.

Cordir says, 'Katrana, Noctus and Boromir have both spoken to me of your sponsorship.'.

Cordir says, 'Kaldred, Aslan has spoken to me of your sponsorship.'.

Cordir says, 'In sponsoring you, each of these Chosen has taken it upon themselves to be personally responsible for your behaviour until such time as you fully understand our ways.'.

Katrana nods.

Kaldred says (in common), 'Solaron was going to as well.. Perhaps he didn't catch you.'.

The Guardian Spider says (in ancient Thoras), "Lady, I am bid here by your Taoiseach. What would you have of me?"

The Guardian Spider looks over at Tien, and seemingly glares at being summoned.

Katrana winces. Ouch!

Cordir says, 'These two worthy individuals have travelled here to N'Kai to swear Geasa, Guardian.'.

The spider seems somewhat mollified, though you still sense general grumpiness.

Cordir nods slowly. 'Witnessed'.

Cordir turns to Kaldred.

Kaldred begins.

Katrana listens intently.

Kaldred says (in common), 'As a true newbie to the realm, i found people(even when asked) to be quite unhelpful. Without equipment, you could be the best player in the realm, but not have a good enough character to make it. I went through this once. I swear that i will give any equipment not needed by the Chosen, to those newbies in need of it, and will never destroy it, unless it is worthless.'.

Cordir nods.

Ambrose says (in common), 'Witnessed'.

The spider murmurs, 'Witnessed.'

Ambrose grins happily.

Kaldred grins wickedly at Ambrose.

Tien nods.

Kaldred says (in common), 'Secondly, as i relate my Geasas to my time as a newbie and how hard it was for me to climb the ladder of achievement, i swear to be a patient teacher - offering knowledge to all who seek it no matter the time or inconvenience.'.

Katrana nods.

Cordir nods.

The spider murmurs, 'Witnessed.'

Ambrose says (in common), 'witnessed'.

Tien nods.

Kaldred says (in common), 'And thirdly, my most challenging task ever was finding that i was not meant to be where i had put myself. Guidance would have been most appreciated, but there were none to help/guide me. I shall strive my best to show those evils that may have travelled my path that there IS a better way..Not necessarily MY way, but a way.'.

Cordir nods.

The spider murmurs, 'Witnessed.'

Ambrose says (in common), 'witnessed'.

Cordir turns formally to the Guardian Spider and nods.
Cordir says, 'Geasa have been offered up and Witnessed.'.
Cordir says, 'Let them now be Woven.'.

The spider approaches where Katrana and Kaldred stand.

Ambrose grins slyly once again at guardian.

It towers over both of them, gazing down with clicking mandibles.

The spider murmurs, 'Elf. My favorite.'

Kaldred giggles.

Kaldred gets a jar of pickled elf ears from a backpack.
Kaldred juggles a jar of pickled elf ears.
Kaldred winks suggestively at the Guardian.

The Guardian's forelegs flicker, and the twin threads you spied in the Pattern appear there.

Katrana turns red in the face from trying to hide her laughter at Kaldred's attempts.

Kaldred giggles at Katrana's actions.

Kaldred puts a jar of pickled elf ears in a backpack.

Delicately her massive legs and spinnerettes work in concert, and you can almost see the Weaving take place.

All around you, the Pattern shifts, touched by the momentous oaths given.

You feel something settle down around you..
The weight of oaths, felt.
The spider steps back and nods.

Katrana smiles happily.

"Lady," the Guardian spider says, 'It is done.'

Cordir nods.
Cordir says, 'This is the moment, then... I ask you both, one last time.. Is it truly your wish to become one of the Chosen? If not, depart this place now. if so... please kneel.'.

Katrana extends her hands, with palms together.

Cordir clasps her hands around first one pair of outstretched hands, then the other.

The gesture is ancient and ages old - a leige accepting fealty.

Cordir says, 'Katrana and Kaldred, will you both swear to abide the laws of this Realm... and the lawfully given instructions of its Immortals?'.

Katrana says (in common), 'I swear'.
Katrana nods.

Kaldred says (in common), 'I will.'.

Cordir says, 'Then, Katrana, I ask you to give me your oath.'.

Katrana leaves north.
Kaldred nods.

Cordir raises her hand in a graceful gesture of summoning.
A glimmering light appears, and expands into a shining web-like Pattern.
Cordir steps through the Pattern Web, disappearing from the chamber.

Within The Tapestry of Fate
[Exits: north up]
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.

The Pattern fades into motes of light, scattered about the chamber.

Clue ftells, 'if we start stammering, please understand :)'.
Katrana ftells, 'hehe'.
