The Shore of Lake Hali
[Exits: east south down]
Black ice, dark and opaque, extends in a plain about you, forming a lake of dark, slick perfection. You have landed on the shore of that body, a dark cliff rising before you to the north. An octagonal door has been cut into it, and an octagonal pit opens downward. The eldritch monstrosity emanating from them horrify you, urging you to retreat.

(Light Red Aura) Lin-Tra, Duergar Shaman of the Spawn, worships her totems
here.


Shar-Ti, Duergar Shaman of the Dhole, worships her totem here.
Unclothed but for the sigla completely covering her body,
Shar-Ti shrieks her worship of the sleeping Dhole:
Now it sleeps, in N'Kai of Night.
Now it dreams, til the Stars are Right.
Soon it wakes, and births, and breeds.
Then it rises, slays, and feeds ...
Shar-Ti is in perfect health.

You nod in recognition to Shar-Ti.
DarkFang looks at Shar-Ti.
Unclothed but for the sigla completely covering her body,
Lin-Tra sings her worship of the Formless Spawn:
Shapeless they are, yet of all shapes can they be.
Boundless they flow, ever wild and free.
Realmless they wait, for their Sender will soon wake.
Ceaseless they grow, the Sun-Lit world they take.
Lin-Tra is in perfect health.
Lin-Tra is using:
<held> a pustulous heart

Elektra pauses a moment to make eye contace with all present.
You say (in common), 'I came here today to purify myself and my conscience of my sins'.

You say (in common), 'After the initial imbalance, the waves fade and the water finds a new balance.'.
You say (in common), 'The Three will always show Honour, Perseverence, and Balance.'.
Elektra sips some of the wather from her goblet and passes it around.

You poke him in the ribs.
You wink suggestively.

Someone winks at Tiax.
You nod.
You say (in common), 'Since my creation, I have sinned. I ask you to witness the lifting of my sins'.

Elektra walks around the room, letting all see the scarlet stains on her otherwise lamb white robe.
Your cheeks are burning.

Tiax nods.

You say (in common), 'Eventhough the Abductress was riven from me long ago, I still bear evidence that she was once a part of my past.'.

Elektra runs her hands over her inky black skin and over her ice white hair.

You say (in common), 'Nanook is still a part of me.. we still share our forms.'.
You say (in common), 'He deserves to roam free'.

You yell (in common), 'Send me a form that better reflects who I am, and who I am to be.'.
Elektra hugs and kisses the cheeks of all those present.
Elektra walks slowly into the Lake Hali, it's cool temperature raises goosebumps over her dark skin.
Elektra's robe trails behind her as she disappears from sight into the dark waters.

Someone spots a fish.
The stains of Elektra's robe spread to the water around her.

Lin-Tra yells, 'Nanook, leave her! Her soul was restored!'.
Lin-Tra yells, 'Now I restore your body to roam the realm.'.

Lake Hali, now a scarlet lake, heats to an unbearable boil.

DarkFang hides her face from the steam.

The Great Dhole yells, 'So shall it be!'.
In a flash, the waters clear, and cool to their normal temperature.

Elektra's form floats from the depths of the lake, her energy completely drained.

DarkFang runs to the edge of the lake.
A Magic Mushroom suddenly appears.
You get a Magic Mushroom.
You eat a Magic Mushroom.
You are full.
You drink water from a delicate emerald crystal goblet.
You do not feel thirsty.
Shar-Ti says, 'You care for this gnome so much that none of you have noticed any changes.'.

The Wyldess takes Elektra's hands within hers then holds them to where she can see.
Katrana then admires the claws of her Wyldling.

Cordir looks at you.
l self
Although she is tiny in stature, the gnome woman before you
draws the eye like a the gleam of a bare blade glinting in the
night. There is a chill air about her, and it is clear that this is a
being on its guard, ever ready for the hunt - be she hunter or
prey. Your inverse image is visible in her eyes, staring back
at you in silence. Your own reflection shifts, and images appear
in her eyes, like the vision-pool of a seer:
A lone Tiger, stuck in a crevice, griping the rocks with her claws.
The path up is a long and hard one, but she faces the challenge
with dignified determination. The image of the Tiger fades, and
another one shifts into view.
A minotaur, adventuring over the lands, seeking the gnome's
hand in marriage. And the image of the gnome, standing at a
ledge, holding a bird of the purest white, waiting for her to release
it, and her everlasting love for the Wyldling of Fate.

Elektra has a special twinkle in her eye.
Elektra is in perfect health.
Elektra is using:
<used as light> (Glowing) a war banner
<worn around neck> an Amulet of Waterbreathing
<worn on body> a delicately woven corset of sterling silver
<worn about body> a short white robe

Tiax winks suggestively.
For a moment, the Pattern in all of its majesty becomes visible to you all.
DarkFang gasps at it's beauty.

Cordir says softly, "These shores will witness another event of power in the days to come."

Shar-Ti nods.

Katrana sits down and thinks deeply.

You say (in common), 'Wonderful '.

Wunk tries to hold in the laughter.

Someone says, 'Luckily I didn't bring Okk'.
