>rub coc As you rub your black stone cocoon, you feel a sense of lethargy wash over you. Hairy filaments begin forming in the air around you, glowing faintly as they mesh to create a barrier enshrouding your entire form. Your eyelids grow suddenly heavy, and you feel yourself slipping into a peaceful slumber. >l Your head swims as you sleep, darkness enveloping your vision in your dreams, the blackness seeming to constrict you. > You are vaguely aware of a warm but gentle fire that seems to spread through your veins. > A dream of a bright sunny day fills your mind. You see a small butterfly flitting lazily over a flowery meadow. The serenity of the scene soothes you as you continue to sleep. Your head swims as multi-colored swashes of light swirl about you. The ever-changing patterns are oddly soothing, and you feel rested as they fade from your dreams. > As you sleep, the mystical healing energy of the chrysalis courses through your body. > Your head swims as you sleep, darkness enveloping your vision in your dreams, the blackness seeming to constrict you. > As you awaken from your peaceful slumber, you see that you have been encased within a cocoon! With a bit of a struggle you are able to wriggle your arms up to your chest, and with a great heave you crack the side of the chrysalis, punching a hole through the thin wall! It takes only a few moments to enlarge the hole and escape the giant shell. As you step from the chrysalis, it crumbles and fades into nothingness. Roundtime: 20 sec.

Hairy filaments begin forming in the air around Ondreian, glowing faintly as they mesh to form a barrier around him. Within moments his form is blocked from view! >l [Wyrwood Retreat, Inner Garden] Open to the sky, the peaceful garden at the center of the lodge is filled with carefully pruned miniature glowbark trees and neatly trimmed grass. Beds of crimson sirenflowers that rustle with every movement frame the doorways leading to various rooms. Unlit glaes lanterns atop sturdy poles are set along the white gravel paths that lead to a thick meditation mat beside a rough boulder in the center. A spring bubbles up from a rocky knoll in the northeast corner, flowing down to fill a small pool. You also see a huge chrysalis and a wrought iron wastebasket. Also here: Nephal Obvious paths: north, east, south, west > The feathery hairs on the cocoon waft lightly as a gentle breeze brushes over the chrysalis. > The feathery hairs on the cocoon waft lightly as a gentle breeze brushes over the chrysalis. > Faint lights can be seen within the chrysalis, bathing parts of the cocoon in eerie hues. > The feathery hairs on the cocoon waft lightly as a gentle breeze brushes over the chrysalis. > The chrysalis glows with an inner light, pulsing faintly. > The feathery hairs on the cocoon waft lightly as a gentle breeze brushes over the chrysalis. > Soft silvery motes sparkle on the surface of the chrysalis. > The chrysalis suddenly begins shaking, as if something is moving inside it. Within only a few moments an arm bursts through the side of the cocoon, wriggling about as a figure tries to break free of the giant shell! The figure keeps struggling and is finally able to escape, staggering through the thin walls of the cocoon. Ondreian stands before you, his skin glistening in the light as the chrysalis crumbles into nothingness!
SIMU-WYROM The cocoons that you can RUB to enter a chrysalis and get some quick updates. They can be analyzed (nothing special) and have an Elemental Detection message now. The majority of the update were safety checks. Under some weird conditions you could TAP, WAVE, RAISE, EAT, DRINK, and TOSS (THROW) and destroy the cocoon. Some mock verb messaging has been added to prevent that from happening going forward.
