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 ...

Aslan ftells, 'He craps too much ;-P'.

Cordir says, 'So does N'Kai... and the triat path ... burn away the impurities of the soul. The Sigil beneath your feet marks the boundary. Will you enter N'Kai with me?'.

Katrana nods.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I will, Lady'.

Lanfear appears out of nowhere.

Cordir says, 'N'Kai the Black...'.

Lanfear ftells, 'always late :P'.
Lanfear ftells, 'I should have portalled :)'.

In the distance, you hear the unholy roar of the Hurricane.

Lanfear feels the roar.

Cordir says, 'Here lies the sacred Lake Hali...'.

Lanfear grins to herself. What IS she thinking about...?!

Cordir says, 'and the four Shamans of N'Kai...'.

Katrana nods in recognition to Cordir.

Cordir smiles quietly.

Katrana nods remembering her lessons with Lin-Tra.

Cordir says, 'Let us continue, with their welcome blessing.'.

Katrana nods.
Ghazkull nods.

Cordir says, 'N'Kai the holy is where the Chosen offer up their oaths... to retouch and rekindle our bond with the Triat. Believe in the Three is not required of Chosen. But many of us acknowledge them as powerful forces of nature that help us to understand the world around us. We seek to walk the Triat path to hone our spirits within. And that is also the purpose of our entry quest... to begin that process. It is challenging for the pure reason that being Chosen is a challenge in and of itself.. Moreso, in chaotic times to come...'.
Cordir looks troubled, seeing the Future in the Pattern.
Cordir says, 'we will need to be strong.'.

Solaron nods.

Cordir withdraws a parchment scroll bound with blue and silver ribbons from a pouch at her belt.

Cordir says, 'I hold the tale of your life, and it pleased me well to read of it. Would you tell me the names of a few of the young ones you gave aid to?'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I have aided Yoshimitsu Lady, others that I asked were not in need of any of my aid'.

Cordir nods.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'but I have been actively looking for people to help and have been gathering eq to aid anyone who needed it'.

Cordir says, 'and what would you say you learned from your time spent trying to aid the young?'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'It is difficult when you are young, to understand how things work. some things that we take for granted....'.

Lanfear grins mischievously.
Lanfear ftells, 'oh so true'.
Cordir ftell, 'say it aloud... i'm sure he'd like to hear your agreement'.

Lanfear says (in common), 'oh so very true'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'aren't as apparent to young people, I have learnt to be as simple as possible while explaining something, and to listen to the exact problem before trying'.
