[Within the Fog]
The area here is a sea of swirling white fog and obscure, shadowy humanoids, many of them prone on the ground.  There also appears to be the rough outline of massive stones, situated in a wide circle.  
Obvious paths: out

[The Endless Light]
Cloying blackness surrounds you, stirred into a frenzied whorled mass of shadows as luminescent amber ribbons of energy writhe overhead.  A thick cloud of soft white mist swirls underfoot, with pinpoints of golden light stretching out in all directions like an endless field of gilt-hued stars.  
Obvious paths: north, south

[The Endless Light, Baptism]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  Dark, shadowy walls encompass a huge chamber where an oblong pillar of blood marble rises from the floor.  Grooves of blood decorate the ground, and a wooden wagon rests near what appears to be a swirling grey portal.  Within the portal a cobbled street stretches between the steps of a huge temple and a majestic palace.

Obvious paths: north, south

[The Endless Light, Scorned]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.   Among the mist stands a young boy with golden eyes, standing in the shadow of his father who looms over him, a commanding finger outstretched, while a scowl is frozen on his lips.  Tears seem to form at the corner of the young boy's eyes, over and over.
Obvious paths: south, west

[The Endless Light, Abandoned]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  Among the mist there is a young boy standing in the doorway of a home, his golden eyes filled with sorrow and pain as he watches his father and brothers, all in imperial uniforms, march towards a moving column of soldiers. The boy clenches his jaw, over and over.
Obvious paths: north, southwest

[The Endless Light, Devotion]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  Among the mist there is a brown-haired woman kneeling before an altar, a strand of ivory prayerbeads interwoven among her fingers as she prays.  At her side, stands a young golden-eyed boy, looking down at identical beads in his hand.
Obvious paths: north, southeast

[The Endless Light, Breathless]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  Among the mist, a brown-haired woman lays bloodied at the entrance of her home, her eyes wide in shock and death.  Nearby, upon the cobbled stones of a street, a young gold-eyed boy lays on his back, a black arrow wedged miraculously between two beads of the string around his neck.
Obvious paths: east, south

[The Endless Light, Acceptance]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  Among the mist, a golden-eyed man stands before a looming white stone tower, his slender frame garbed in a flowing white robe emblazoned with a golden crown.  The doors open, over and over, and the vision of the man stepping inside keeps occurring.  
Obvious paths: west, northwest

[The Endless Light, Awaking]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  Among the mist, a golden-eyed man stands before an auditorium full of robed priests and scholars, speaking to them from a risen stone podium.  He watches suddenly, as his eyes spark with a golden light, and then a deep curiosity.  Those gathered are drawn to him, hanging on his every word, and his lips suddenly curl into a grin.
Obvious paths: southeast, west

[The Endless Light, Alliance]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  A golden-eyed man bedecked in white armor and a crisp tabard steps out of a dark forest, stopping before a murky cabin.  Barging inside, the man encounters an old, frail witch leaning over an empty cauldron.  They both lock eyes, but neither strike.  The crone says something backing away, to which the man then grins wide, stepping forward, but sheathing his blade.
Obvious paths: east, south

[The Endless Light, Jewel]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  A young raven-haired woman with green hair stands before her father, a wedding gown hanging from a rack behind her.  In the corner of a room, a golden-eyed man smiles, nodding his approval, and placing his hand on the woman's shoulder, who cringes at his touch. The door opens, and a large bald human walks in, garbed in mail and tabard.
Obvious paths: northeast, southeast

[The Endless Light, Shame]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  A stout, dark-haired man shivers in a corner, pleading, as a golden-eyed man enters the bedchamber.  The golden-eyed man speaks a word, unheard, and the older man then rises to his feet, dropping a signet from his finger, then moves over to a stand, enthralled and tying rope around his neck.  The golden-eyed man grins wide, pulling a chair away from a table and nodding.
Obvious paths: northeast, southeast

[The Endless Light, Harvest]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  A golden-eyed man walks among a verdant meadow, once green, but now painted in splattered swathes of sanguine.  Sylvan corpses litter the ground like rocks of flesh, and the man grins at the sea of death around him. A body nearby squirms, and he places his boot upon her neck and shifts his weight.
Obvious paths: southeast, south

[The Endless Light, Blameless]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  A golden-eyed man in a flowing white robe stands at the edge of a stone dais, a sea of bald men with darkened eyes spread out before him.  The air shimmers from the heat of red-hot brands, as one by one the men kneel, crown-shaped scars seared into their flesh.  The man grins, watching as one by one, the Blameless rise.
Obvious paths: north, west

[The Endless Light, Judgment]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  The high stone walls of a fortress rise up from the gloom, and a golden-eyed man stands near a wooden stake that has been scorched black.  Nearby, robed priests carry the melted corpse of what was once a man, and carry it up to the edge of an expansive wall, before tossing it over.
Obvious paths: north, southeast

[The Endless Light, Atonement]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  A golden-eyed man stands before a crystalline coffin, where within rests a huge brooding giantman.  In an archway, a green-haired woman stands, the hem of her blue robe brushing the ground.  The man turns, catching the woman's eyes, and utters  a word.  The woman then nods, chanting, and the coffin slowly opens.
Obvious paths: northeast, southeast

[The Endless Light, Commandment]
The pale white fog swirls and eddies listlessly, forming obscure patterns and shapes among the gold-speckled backdrop of an endless sky.  An old, wrinkled witch lurks in a shadowy corner of a cavern, drawing a circle of blood on the earthen ground.  Suddenly, she looks up, hearing approaching footsteps and her form suddenly changes, resembling a middle-aged brown-haired woman.  A golden-eyed man approaches, smiling at her warmly and kneeling beside her.
