Roundtime: 10 seconds
You launch the craft, and with a few thrusts of the punt pole you are
whisked across the waters to the stone jetty below the sanctuary situated
within a grove of palm trees.
You secure the painter to one of the moorings-rings and go ashore.
Obvious paths: none.
Roundtime: 3 seconds.>go grove
You leave the felucca and hurry up the granite steps to enter a courtyard.
A sirocco breeze blows through this warm colored courtyard situated within>
Limestone reliefs boast of many war victories.
The cartouches of a
master rogue and a high priestess are crowned by the sun and flanked by
royal cobras. One relief seems to depict a ferocious earthworm. The
stone needle of the obelisk is topped by a pyramidion covered in gold.
Roundtime: 3 seconds.
The alchemist is sitting on a beautifully
crafted onyx meditation bench,
preparing her concoctions. As you approach her she moves her head then
rolls her eyes towards the portal of the inner sanctum.
As you move quietly over the granite flags towards the entrance
heart feels lightened . You enter the sanctum.
Roundtime: 2 seconds.
Obvious paths: out.
You also see Tamboura.
Built in honor of the ruler of the Olympian gods and the god of wealth and
thievery the sanctum is clad in skyblue satin and the walls are telling of Hermes's
fame in colorful glyphs.
Obvious paths: out.
The priestess kneels before
some gigantic statues of Hermes and Zeus. The gods
beam down upon her, bedecked in wreaths of blue-green agates and
golden laurel leaves.
You also see Zed.
Zed kneels beside Tamboura. He has laid aside his weapons and armor.
They are piled at the door of the sanctum.
The young couple are holding hands, and their faces are almost touching
as they whisper their vows solemnly together.
Tamboura turns toward Zed.
"You are my sun, my day is dark without you."
Zed turns toward Tamboura.
"You are the nile of my heart, the waters of your love feed my soul."
"You are my man, through this world and all the worlds to come."
"You are my woman, and I pledge you my love. I swear it to you on the breath
and the blood of Hermes."
"I take up your pledge and return it to you one hundredfold."
"No one can ever come between us. Nothing can ever part us."
"We are one , for ever."
As they embrace, a sudden warm wind of the lagoon swirles through the
dimly lit halls of the sanctuary and flutteres the torch flames, so that for an
instance the faces of the two lovers blurr before your eyes.
The wind passes as swiftly as it has come, but the whisper of it around the
great stone pillars is like a distant touch of the gods.
There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
no disease that enough love will not heal;
no door that enough love will not open;
no gulf that enough love will not bridge;
no wall that enough love will not throw down;
no sin that enough love will not redeem...
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble;
how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough you would be
the happiest and most powerful being in the world...
