Volnes, day 13 of the month Jastatos in the year 5103

[Icemule Temple, Chancel Nexus]
No light of sun or star reaches this chamber deep within the heart of the glacier. Three oil lamps hang from the ceiling, lighting a room clad in various colors of granite. Radiating out from the center of the floor in a pattern reminiscent of the nautilus shell are widening bands of white, black, and silvery-grey stone. The white granite leads up a well-lit stairway to the north, while the black stone descends a dark stairway to the south. The grey leads through the east wall into the shadows beyond. You also see the Rendena disk, the icy blue Daina disk, a wall-sized oil painting and an ice blue taper.

Obvious exits: east, west, up, down

Blushes says, "I just hope that annoying wizard stays away."

Blushes mutters under her breath.

Natsuki says, "I think someone should of added that politicians are always late...."

Daina asks, "What wizard?"

Blushes says, "Otherwise we'll be dealing with murder."

Natsuki asks, "what annoying wizard?"

Daina turns an inquisitive ear towards Blushes.

Blushes says, "Some Bralledar."

Natsuki peers quizzically at Blushes.

Daina rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Rasl begins chuckling at Natsuki!

Tierus ponders.

Kasia says, "There is much joy also, to celebrate in this occasion..."

Theogrim says, "Sorcerer, not Wizard"

Valicar says, "Hopefully, this gathering will not end with a bang like the Thurfel one."

Daina says, "Bralledar is a wizard"

Blushes says, "No, he's a wizard."

Daina nods.

Theogrim says, "oh"

Svardin says, "there's a hope"

Sherysse begins chuckling at Valicar!

Natsuki says, "don't think I know him...."

Theogrim says, "I thought thatcha meant.. Pherry.."

Tierus says, "Ah woul've rather liked tae end Thurfel wif a bang."

Sherysse says, "Just don't steal things off the altars this time."

Sherysse grins at Valicar.

(Tierus laughs, a bit bitterly.)

Murp says, "I bet he was behind this."

Blushes says, "Oh yes, Pheyrmerrin."

Blushes struts about.

Valicar says, "well, you would, Tierus"

Valicar nods.

Blushes says, "Look at me, I'm Pheyrmerrin."

Blushes struts about.

Myrianna softly says in guild speak, "i'm here for the joy of finding a child, and i'm here for the ones that we did not find"

Blushes struts about.

Rasl breathes in deeply as he clenches a pipe in his mouth, then exhales slowly, causing some dark amorphous clouds of puffy smoke to float up from his mouth.

Myrianna softly says in guild speak, "nothing more, nothing less"

Tierus turns to face Valicar.

Duvalle just arrived.

Natsuki begins chuckling at Blushes!

You say, "Pheyrmerrin is being honored I believe, by the Town Council."

Rasl rubs Myrianna tenderly.

Tierus says, "Nae e'ery day tha' ye find yerself a dupe."

You say, "But then again who knows if he will show."

Cappurnicus nods to Duvalle in greeting.
Ianeal nods to Duvalle in greeting.

Duvalle smiles.

You curtsy to Duvalle.

Daina says, "As well he should."

You say, "Evening, Dean."

Svardin says, "I think I has a honor he deserves"

Ianeal says, "Good evening, Duvalle."

Duvalle says, "Good evening folks."

You see Duvalle Ilexvert the Halfling Temple Dean.
He appears to be in his 80's, has short dark brown hair, brown eyes, and alabaster skin.
He is in good shape. He is wearing some wooden prayer beads, some wooden prayer beads, a crystal amulet, a leather sack, some braided goat hide sandals, some black woolen trousers with ice blue silk piping down each leg, an ice blue silk sash from which dangle several large keys, a black woolen cassock, an ice blue silk coin pouch, a crystal temple pin, and some white monir prayer beads.

Kasia smiles and nods in greeting to Duvalle.
Sherysse bows to Duvalle.

Kasia says, "Evening Dean"

Sherysse says, "Good evening to you."

Duvalle says, "I'm so happy to see such a large crowd gathered."

Blushes squints at Duvalle.

Daina nods to Duvalle in greeting.
Zosopage smiles and nods in greeting to Duvalle.

Blushes says, "Someone shorter then me."

Blushes raises her fist defiantly.

Galesmight says, "Evenin everyone."

Valicar smiles at Duvalle.

Galesmight bows.

Rasl softly says in guild speak, "we could only do what we could dear, there were at times to many of them, and to few of us"

Rasl rubs Myrianna tenderly.

Galesmight says, "It's a bit cold, should of dressed warmer."

Blushes scratches her nose.

Galesmight nods.

Valicar says, "I like the renovations on the temple, Duvalle"

Myrianna softly says in guild speak, "there were always too few of us"

Myrianna sighs.

Valicar nods to Duvalle.

Myrianna hangs her head.

Duvalle bows to Valicar.

Natsuki says, "it's always cold in mule..."

Ianeal says, "Icemule is always cold."

Blushes asks, "It was renovated?"

Blushes sniffs.

Valicar bows to Duvlle.

Daina nods to Blushes.

Svardin says, "downright warm here"

Zosopage asks, "cold?"

Rasl softly asks in guild speak, "aye, but we did prevail aye?"

Blushes says, "Drink less, observe more."

You say, "Well, it's on a glacier."

You chuckle.

Tierus says, "Ah remem'er a time whin Icemule burnt."

Zosopage asks, "What cold?"

Zosopage rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Galesmight says, "Aye, I know it's cold."

Ianeal says, "You dress warm year-round... everyone knows that up here."

Tierus says, "It wisnae cold then."

Daina grins at Blushes.

Natsuki frowns.

Duvalle says, "We still have a few final things to get done."

Duvalle nods.

Tayre says, "There's cold, and then there's Khaitiff."

Myrianna softly asks in guild speak, "did we?"

Daina turns an inquisitive ear towards Duvalle.

Tayre nods.

Duvalle says, "A few items on order."

Galesmight says, "I said warmer that is Ianeal."

You nod to Duvalle.

Valicar says, "But it is well underway" Maeror laughs at Tayre!

Khaitiff smiles at Tayre.

Kasia says, "Quite extensively so, and some areas re-renovated.. thank goodness."

Valicar nods to Duvalle.

Natsuki begins chuckling at Tayre!

Svardin says, "I'll have Fang heat tings up"

Rasl softly says in guild speak, "we saved those that we could"

Khaitiff clearly says, "Thank you Tayre, thats the sweetest thing you've said to me"

You ask, "Will the service for the dead be in the Nexus here?"

Tayre smiles at Khaitiff.

Tayre says, "anytime."

Rasl softly says in guild speak, "we can't be in all places at every time"

You ask, "Or Lorminstra's chapel?"

You cock your head at Duvalle.

Blushes says, "I remember when you came in and would go to the light, or go to the dark..."

Duvalle says, "Seems its a difficult time for trade, what with the global disruptions."

Tayre says, "It will be here."

Tayre nods to you.

Blushes nods to Duvalle.

Tayre says, "A crier announced it."

Valicar says, "I think you will find that things are getting back to normal again" Valicar nods to Duvalle.

Blushes exclaims, "Evil elves dispelled dwarves!"

Myrianna softly says in guild speak, "no, but we can wish we were able"

Blushes nods to Duvalle.

Myrianna sighs.

Rasl breathes in deeply as he clenches a pipe in his mouth, then exhales slowly, causing some dark amorphous clouds of puffy smoke to float up from his mouth.

Duvalle smiles at Valicar.

Rasl nods to Myrianna.

Rasl softly says in guild speak, "true"

Blushes says, "Then the evil dwarves dispelled the elves."

Rasl leans forward and rests his chin in his hand, a thoughtful expression on his face.

Ianeal says, "Tensions are still hell everywhere and will stay that way for a long time."

Blushes struts about.

Duvalle says, "That would be a very welcome change, for me and mine."

Duvalle sighs.

Ianeal says, "I think things are worse down south than they've been in years."

Valicar says, "You have one of the finest altars to Koar in the realms."

Valicar nods to Duvalle.

Tierus asks, "Ah s'ppose ye'll be requirin' mer silver soon, tae continue tha rennovations?"

Tierus raises an eyebrow in Duvalle's direction.

Duvalle beams with great pleasure.

Blushes hiccups!

Sheilagh glances at Blushes.

Rasl cuddles closely with Myrianna, who smiles back happily.

Halflings begin to file into the hall, many with tearstreaked cheeks or downcast eyes. Mothers and fathers hold their children tightly by the hands, and the aged lean upon the shoulders of the young as they shuffle in.

Sheilagh smiles quietly to herself.

Blushes peers quizzically at Sheilagh.

Sheilagh giggles.

Blushes asks, "What, what?"

Blushes fidgets.

Myrianna gives Rasl a lingering kiss on the forehead.

Rasl gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

You bite your lip.

Sheilagh somberly says, "Ye hiccups."

Natsuki stares off into space.

Rasl ponders.

Tayre sighs softly.

Speaking little, the Halflings array themselves in a wide semi-circle, most standing in front of the elven, human, and giantman visitors to their community in order to get a better view of proceedings.

Myrianna lets out a long, contemplative breath.

(Tieus frowns ever-so-slightly.)

Blushes chants a reverent litany and clasps her hands while tightly focusing her thoughts...
Blushes exclaims, "I bless thee!"

Sheilagh grins.

Shallira gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Blushes says, "I can't bless thee."

Ichiko gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Blushes babbles something unintelligible.

Daina clears her throat.

Kasia touches one finger to her lips.

Blushes exclaims, "drat!"

Blushes sobs.

Natsuki ponders.

Duvalle indicates some better places at one end of the circle.

Meos begins chuckling at Shallira!

A Halfling girl fidgets and tugs at her father's wrist, unnerved by the anxious, saddened demeanor of all around her. The Paradis man crouches, touches her cheek, and whispers softly to her, and she becomes still afterward, gazing around with large, solemn eyes.

Councillor Larchus arrives, accompanied by an absolute gaggle of children and other adults, all of whom bear a distinct resemblance to him. One freckled Halfling girl seems a bit more alert and attentive than her siblings, but tears streak the face of almost every member of the large family. Only Larchus's eyes are fully dry, though his shoulders are slumped as if with some great burden.

Valicar smiles at Larchus.

Zosopage bows deeply at the waist, honoring Larchus.

You see Larchus.
He appears to be a Paradis Halfling.
He appears to be in his golden years and average height. He has bright blue eyes and tanned skin. He has short, tousled dark blonde hair streaked with silver at the temples. He has a round face and knobby fingers.
He is in good shape.
He is wearing a hooded white leather cloak lined with wolverine fur, an elegant silver mule clasp, a polished snow leopard tooth suspended on a fine mithril chain, a vivid blue wool sweater, some fitted silvery leather gloves, a small mithril-threaded tobacco pouch, a pair of white fur-lined trousers, and some silver-toed white leather knee boots.

Mange bows to Larchus.
Valicar bows to Larchus.
Cappurnicus nods to Larchus.
Theogrim bows deeply at the waist, honoring Larchus.

Morah takes a few steps back.

Sente turns towards Larchus and renders a sharp hand salute.
Daina nods to Larchus in greeting.
You curtsy to Larchus.
Rasl bows to Larchus.
Sherysse bows to Larchus.
Myrianna bows to Larchus.

Ianeal folds folds his arms over his chest.
(Evelith clasps her hands calmly behind her back.)

Svardin bows to Larchus.
Michiko turns to face Larchus.
Khaitiff nods to Larchus in greeting.
Natsuki curtsies to Larchus.
Keloin bows to Larchus.
Thenidos smiles at Larchus.

The long, ivory velvet skirts of Michiko's elegant cotehardie puddle around her feet as she sinks into a curtsy low enough to honor royalty.

Larchus bows.

Ichiko bows to Larchus.
Sente bows to Duvalle.
Jystema bows to Larchus.

Murp folds his arms over his chest.

Sheilagh turns to face Larchus.

An aged Halfling priestess hobbles in, leaning heavily upon a crystal-inlaid staff. A ring of golden keys hangs at her belt, and her simple robes are ebon black in hue. She is accompanied by two junior priests, a junior priestess, and a pair of skinny acolytes, all of whom wear beaded prayer shawls. The acolytes carry an ebonwood chest together.

Kasia smiles and waves slightly to Tabbie.

Jayleena bites her lip.

The aged priestess hobbles to stand in front of the crowd, and then she pauses a moment, gazing solemnly around at those assembled. The Halflings fall into somber silence, although, from somewhere in the middle of the crowd, you hear the stifled wail of an unhappy baby. The child's mother tries to soothe it in worried, hushed tones.

(Iscikella watches intently.)

Duvalle nods respectfully to the priestess.

Shallira shifts her weight.

The priestess nods respectfully in reply.

Larchus parts gently from his family, unwinding one child's grubby fingers from his cloak hem with great care, and then steps out in front of the crowd.

Larchus clears his throat.

Tayre turns to face Larchus.
You listen carefully to Larchus.
Rasl turns an inquisitive ear towards Larchus.
Shallira turns an inquisitive ear towards Larchus.

Larchus surveys the area.

Blushes hiccups!
Blushes clasps her hand over her mouth.

Larchus slowly empties his lungs.

Ianeal shifts his weight.

Larchus says, "We're a simple folk, the Paradis, but strong ones, heart and soul."

Jaylena glances at Blushes.

Sheilagh nods.

Larchus says, "We don't often grieve, and, when we sorrow, there aren't often those to see it except us."

You bite your lip.

Larchus says, "When we couldn't help ourselves enough, there were many of you -- visitors, strangers, outsiders, adventurers -- who came and gave a healing hand or a caring heart or a sword and shield to guard."

Morah folds her arms over her chest.

Rasl leans on his stick.

Larchus says, "For that reason, we're going to be speaking in the Common tongue, and not our own. Grant our grief the same honor that you'd grant your own people's, or leave. It's not a right time for laughter."

You nod.
You remove some white monir prayer beads from in your lilac samite bodice.

Larchus says something in Halfling.

Blushes squints at Larchus.

Whirlin nods to Larchus.

Larchus bows deeply to the aged priestess before returning to his place in the crowd.

Rasl nods.

Thenidos kneels down.

Jayleena bites her lip.

The aged priestess clears her throat.

The aged priestess speaks, and, although her voice has a distinct Halfling accent, her words are still clear enough to be understood. "Before Icemule Trace... before Maelshyve... before the Paradis were Paradis... there was a time when there was only Mother Land and Father Sky," she says.

Sheilagh nods.

The aged priestess says, "And from the EverForest, there came a grey wolf, and the Mother sent a puma to the grey wolf, and the children of these two were Mhoraga, Brugha, and Malghava, the first of our kind."

Jayleena kneels down.
Sente kneels down.

The aged priestess says, "From those three we are descended, by the will of Mother Land, and all that comes to us is what She wishes. We are, now and forever, the children of Her heart, and we cherish Her within our hearts."

Kormn kneels down.

The aged priestess says, "From the hour that the grey wolf loped out of the forest, it has been the will of Mother Land and Father Sky that we should prosper, and be strong and fierce, and true to one another."

The aged priestess says, "Yet an hour comes, again and again, when we see our brothers, sisters, children, parents, friends, and loved ones leave this world. There are few who grow up without knowing grief, and none who grow old without grieving or dying inside."

The aged priestess says, "Our hearts are not dead. Father Sky bade us be strong, and be fierce, but we are true to one another. We are true to ourselves, and so we must grieve."

Your lower lip trembles slightly.

Jayleena nods.

The aged priestess says, "There comes an hour when the body fails, and, in this hour, Lorminstra, Keeper of the Gate, judges each soul. Some, She turns away, and returns to life. Others, She draws through the Ebon Gate."

The aged priestess removes her ring of golden keys from her belt and raises it overhead.

The aged priestess says, "Look on Her symbol, and know this: Those who are loved will never leave those who love them."

Tayre tilts his head down.

You pull a single bead through your fingers, marking off another prayer to your god.

Duvalle bows.

(Tierus bites his lower lip. His eyes are soft in his stony face. )

Sheilagh sniffs.

You kneel down.

Theogrim rests a gentle hand on Jystema's arm.

The aged priestess gazes around the chamber with a keen, raptor-like eye.

Keloin hangs his head.

Ianeal just tried to pull an ensigiled dark blue linen burnoose.

The aged priestess says, softly but clearly, "Death is not the end of our kinship."

Rasl hangs his head.

Shallira nods.

The aged priestess says, "Those who were your brothers, sisters, children, parents, friends, and loved ones in life... are still as close to you as ever they were. We are all children in Mother Land's will. We are all descended from two who went out from the EverForest, side by side."

The aged priestess says, "Only those who die far from their homelands are at risk of wandering. Call home your loved ones, and they will come."

You bravely hold back your tears, your eyes glistening with pain.

Kasia sniffs.

One of the junior priests steps forward slightly, and says, in a formal tone, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

The other junior priest echoes, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

First the two acolytes take up the chant -- and then it spreads through the crowd. Softly, the gathered Halflings recite, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here." At first, it stumbles slightly, as some of the grieving Halflings forget at first to speak in Common, but then the rhythm stabilizes.

Rasl ponders.

Shallira shifts her weight.

Sherysse closes her eyes for a moment.

Jarlstrom says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here.""

Kasia closes her eyes for a moment.

Raising her voice slightly to be heard above the chant, the aged priestess says, "Do trees grieve against nightfall, because their leaves will miss the light? Do wolves grieve against winter, because their paws will be cold in the snow? Even so, our hearts will grieve, for it is difficult to be separated from our loved ones -- but they hear and heed, for it is the gift of our kinship that they do so."

Tierus slowly empties his lungs.

You say, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

The aged priestess says, "It is the gift of Mother Land, the gift of Father Sky, the gift of Lorminstra..."

You hang your head.

(Tierus looks distinctly uncomfortable. )

The first junior priest touches a small sickle pin on his prayer shawl as he softly says, "The gift of Gosaena."

The second junior priest says, "The gift of love. The gift of kinship."

Duvalle bows.

You thumb your prayer beads.

Natsuki nods.

Natsuki just touched some worn yew carved prayerbeads interlaced with three pristine white feathers.

Rasl hangs his head.

Like waves sweeping over the shore, the Halflings continue to murmur, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Keloin rubs his eyes.

Rasl sniffs.

Blushes's cheeks flush with a deep shade of red.

Cappurnicus surveys the area.

You bravely hold back your tears, your eyes glistening with pain.

The junior priestess says, in clarion tones pitched to carry, "So long as we remember and honor our dead, their spirits will be safe and happy forever. We, the living, may grieve the distance -- but we are strong, and fierce, and true, and ever shall be. We are the Paradis, the Lost -- and we have come home."

You pull a single bead through your fingers, marking off another prayer to your god.

(Morah stands in the shadows of the entryway, her lips pressed tightly together.)

Larchus softly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Sheilagh says something in Halfling.

In response to a slight nod from the aged priestess, the Halfling chant crescendos: "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here. Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Myrianna softly says in guild speak, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Tears streak the face of the small, freckled girl standing near Larchus as she repeats again and again, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Evelith quietly says, "Come home, spirits of the fallen. Come home - you are welcome here."

Evelith nods.

Tayre smiles sadly, his gaze lowered and his eyes glistening, as he himself falls into the rythmic chant.

Jarlstrom softly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Blushes blinks.

The aged priestess signals to the pair of acolytes. The two skinny Halflings carry the ebonwood chest toward her and then lay it gently at her feet.

You quietly say, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Myrianna softly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

The first acolyte stands very straight while the second acolyte fiddles with the latches on the box. It takes a moment, but he finally manages to release the catches, and then stands back, relieved.

Tazelhoffe calmly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Rasl softly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here"

Kasia says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Rasl hangs his head.

The chanting from the crowd fades away into silence.

Sheilagh somberly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Keloin says, ""Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here"

Zosopage softly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Duvalle mutters through a tear-clogged throat, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Jystema softly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Thenidos says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

The aged priestess reaches into the box, and removes, one by one, a stick of scarlet iceblossom incense, two white candles, a small pouch, and a flask of holy water. She gives the holy water to the other priestess, and each junior priest takes a candle. The aged priestess herself retains the pouch, and she stoops to place the incense on the ground.

Whirlin says something in Halfling.

Sente confidently says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

You wrap your prayer beads around your hand as if binding yourself, body and soul, in service to your god.

Tierus says, "Come 'ome, spirits o' our fallen. Come 'ome. Ye're welcome 'ere."

Tierus mumbles something that you don't quite catch.

Mange says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

An acolyte hurries forward to light the incense, and then quickly retreats again.

Michiko enfolds Whirlin in a warm embrace.

Theogrim says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Myrianna rests a gentle hand on Rasl's arm.

Valicar says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Sente lets out a loud keening cry of pure grief.

Jayleena softly says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Ichiko says, "Come home, spirits of our fallen. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Shallira slowly empties her lungs.

A Halfling woman dressed in mourning steps forward from the crowd and approaches the aged priestess. She kneels in front of the priestess and mumbles something quietly, but her words are too indistinct to be discerned, except for the last -- she tilts back her head slightly, and, though her voice cracks with tears, she clearly says, "Come home, spirit of my husband. Come home -- you are welcome here."

Jayleena pulls Sente closer to herself.

Rasl snuggles Myrianna, who responds by cradling an arm around him.

Sente rests a gentle hand on Jayleena's arm.

Rasl sniffs.

Some scarlet incense emits a tendril of iceblossom-scented smoke, which forms a lacy pattern in the air before fading away.

Kasia cries in pain, her face contorted in torment as she weeps.

Daina leans on Khaitiff resting her head on his shoulder.

Myrianna weeps softly, quiet tears falling from her eyes.

Tayre rests a gentle hand on Kasia's arm.

Tazelhoffe hangs his head.

The younger priestess dips a fingertip into the flask of holy water and touches it gently to the woman's forehead, and the two priests raise their candles slightly. The movement causes the flames to dance and flare, sending golden light washing over the woman's tearstreaked face.

Jarlstrom rubs his eyes.

Ichiko kneels down.

Thenidos hangs his head.

Rasl rubs Myrianna tenderly.

You bravely hold back your tears, your eyes glistening with pain.

Theogrim holds back his tears, his eyes glistening with pain.

Archevald rubs Kasia tenderly.

You hang your head.

An arctic wolf pads into the room.

Sherysse removes a black silk rose-imprinted handkerchief from in her spidersilk vest.

The aged priestess takes a small seed from the pouch in her hand and bends down to place it in front of the widow. The woman picks it up, stands, and closes her hand tightly around it as she turns away to walk out of the hall.

Sherysse wipes her face with a black silk rose-imprinted handkerchief, drying off the streaks left by tears.

Zosopage weeps softly, quiet tears falling from his eyes.

Khaitiff rests a gentle hand on Daina's arm.

The wolf takes a look around.
There is a twinkle in an arctic wolf's eyes for a moment.

Jystema rests a gentle hand on Theogrim's arm.

One by one, other Halflings approach the priestess. Only bits and pieces of words can be caught, because almost every voice is too shaky from tears or too quiet with inner grief to be properly understood, but the Halflings seem to be making promises to their dead loved ones or reminding their loved ones of past joyful memories, while the priests and priestesses look on with compassionate, sympathetic eyes.

Keloin kneels down.

Rasl hangs his head.

The faint scent of iceblossom fills the air.

A single tear rolls slowly down the cheek of the younger priestess, flickering in the candlelight, but she does not move to wipe it away as she gently presses a drop of holy water to the forehead of a Halfling man wracked by the shudders of grief.

You remove a delicate silk lilac-scented handkerchief from in your spidersilk skirt.

Ianeal looks very far away for a moment, a wistful expression on his face.

Duvalle places his hand on his prayer beads.

You bunch up your lilac-scented handkerchief in your fist.

Keloin sniffs.

Myrianna breathes almost without making a sound.

The arctic wolf turns away, looks back over its shoulder once, and then pads off.

Keloin rubs his eyes.

Jayleena rubs her crystal green eyes.

Myrianna weeps softly, quiet tears falling from her eyes.

Gradually, the crowd lessens, as, one by one, each Halfling walks forward, kneels, speaks softly, receives the silent blessing of the clergy, and then departs the hall, many clutching the small seeds like protective talismans.

Sherysse places a hand over her heart.

Rasl rests a gentle hand on Myrianna's arm.

You hear someone sigh.

Ichiko hangs her head.

Larchus quietly says, "Many of those you see here will not join us in the town hall, for their grief is too great for them to celebrate at this time. But some will, and it is there that we will honor the people who struggled in this crisis."

Larchus walks forward to kneel in front of the priestess and bows his head. He barely does more than move his lips, speaking so quietly that it seems unlikely even the clergy can hear him, until the final, "Come home, spirits of my city. Come home -- you are welcome here."

You wipe your face with your lilac-scented handkerchief, drying off the streaks left by tears.

Tazelhoffe coughs.

Kasia sniffs.

Rasl coughs.

Keloin closes his eyes for a moment.

The faint scent of iceblossom fills the air.

A shudder of grief passes through Larchus's body as the younger priestess touches a drop of holy water to his forehead.

Theogrim sighs wearliy.

Rasl clasps his hand over his mouth.

Jayleena weeps softly, quiet tears falling from her eyes.

Whirlin bites his lip.

Larchus slowly stands.

Sherysse bunches up a black silk rose-imprinted handkerchief in her fist.

Mange kneels down.

Daina clears her throat.

(Iscikella gazes in sympathy at Larchus.)

Jarlstrom weeps softly, quiet tears falling from his eyes.

The aged priestess presses a small seed into Larchus's hand, and he briefly touches the seed to his lips before turning and walking out of the hall. The rest of his family has already gone.

Khaitiff squints.

You stand back up.

The last Halfling to approach the priestess is a boy of perhaps no more than thirteen years of age. No one watches or waits for him as he whispers a very long prayer to the dead. His face is as white as snow, and, when he sways, the younger priestess jerks downward, clearly meaning to catch him if he faints -- but he regains his balance, and continues until the final, "Come home, mother. Come home, father. Come home, Moreei. Come home, grandpa. Come home, auntie. Come home -- you are welcome here."

[Icemule Temple, Chancel Nexus]
No light of sun or star reaches this chamber deep within the heart of the glacier. Three oil lamps hang from the ceiling, lighting a room clad in various colors of granite. Radiating out from the center of the floor in a pattern reminiscent of the nautilus shell are widening bands of white, black, and silvery-grey stone. The white granite leads up a well-lit stairway to the north, while the black stone descends a dark stairway to the south. The grey leads through the east wall into the shadows beyond.

Natsuki shrugs.

Daina nods to Natsuki.

Larchus says, "Can someone go shake him out of the guild? It's wrong that he wouldn't be here."

Michiko says, "I saw him there a few days ago, but I wasn't able to ask if he would be attending."

You say, "Perhaps if ye spoke to the Sorcerer Guildmaster."

(Evelith notices Tierus' smile, inclining her head briefly before returning her attentions to Larchus.)

(Iscikella licks her lips uncomfortably.)

You say, "Well, I believe he had other problems with them, as I said. But was so vague what he muttered."

Valicar says, "perhaps he knows something"

A white panther emits a surprisingly deep growl!

Blushes asks, "It would make sense, like back in the days of Despana, no?"

Khaitiff recites:
"The Guild Master was helpful but I felt a sense of loss in his voice..."

Valicar asks, "Who said anything about talk?"

Valicar winks at Ianeal.

Larchus takes a deep breath.

When you turn the globe, the crude blue green-eyed humanoid-shaped gelatin inside loses cohesion and flattens back into a pale blue blob.

Larchus says, "WEll."

Ianeal says, "If you want to lead your people against Ta'Faendryl, be my guest. I'll sit back and watch."

Tierus says, "Tha'd be a grave error."

Khaitiff nods to Valicar.

Larchus says, "When we thought it was lost."

You quietly whisper to Galesmight, "Waving it someone causing it to try and take on that form, but it is not completely formed so can only manage the eyes."

Trevyr nods to Larchus.

Galesmight nods to you.

Galesmight removes a faenor-banded smoky glaesine globe from his neck.
Galesmight tightens his grip on his smoky glaesine globe, and the inside of the globe suddenly shimmers with a scarlet hue. The color fades as quickly as it came.

Trevyr looks at his neighbors with great admiration.

The white cat meows loudly.

Larchus says, "And I'm going to ask you each in turn to search your hearts... remembering the blood that runs in your veins..."

Larchus says, "And I'd tell you all to take a few deep breaths, remember the dead, and joy for the living."

Larchus says, "But it's not."

Larchus says, "Because we weren't saved by our own hands, no matter how much we might have wished on it."

Larchus says, "But by the hands and aid of those outside us."

Trevyr nods.

Larchus says, "When I thought one closest to me lost, it wasn't just her kin, Whirlin and Rasl, who went looking for her."

Larchus says, "There were three others, who weren't kin to her at all." A white panther's tail darts back and forth sharply as he purrs.

Larchus says, "But there's a variant, slight, that means 'friend who isn't Truefolk' at the same as it means 'Bane of the Child-Stealers'."

Trevyr nods sagely in agreement with the councillor.

Tayre sheepishly says, "I don't want... it's not necessary..."

Tayre gibbers incoherently.

Natsuki begins chuckling at Tayre!

Larchus says, "Kasia, Michiko, Myrianna, and Tayre... from this day forth, you are known to the people in this city, and those beyond if they pay attention, as Ka'Fahar'a dyur Kontiquaela."
