                    [Alexandria, River Bank]
                    Warm  wind is  blowing through the edges of the papyrus  fields at the
                    bank of the river nile. As you gaze over the lagoon, which glistens  bright
                    like molten metal from a furnace, you see  a picturesque  little granite
                    island adorned with a  sanctuary, sparkling like a necklace of pearls in the
                    stark Egyptian sunlight. You also see a felucca.
                    Obvious paths: none.

                    >launch felucca
                    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.

>go grove
You leave the felucca and hurry up the granite steps to enter a courtyard.
                    Roundtime: 3 seconds.
                   A sirocco breeze blows through this warm colored courtyard situated within
                   a grove of palm trees. A tiled marble fountain in the center dances playfully in
                   stark contrast with a golden limestone obelisk that juts from a small water garden
                   containing fanciful fish and cream colored lotuses.
                   A row of pink fasciculated papyrus columns upholding a magnificient frieze forms
                   the entrance of the hypostyle granite sanctuary.
                   A door off to the right leads to a small chapel dedicated to the god Ra, while to
                   the left a landscaped arch formed of living papyrus leads into darkness.
                   Obvious paths: none

                   >exam obelisk

                   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.


>go entrance
Roundtime: 3 seconds.

                    [Sanctuary, Entrance]
                    The rush torches in their brackets on the tall entrance pillars throw a
                    ruddy,wavering light that seems to bring to life the bas-relief carvings on
                    the walls and make them dance.
                    Also here: Ingvenonen
                    Obvious paths: none
                    >look ingvenonen

                    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.

                    >go sanctum

                    As you move quietly over the granite flags  towards the entrance your
                    heart feels lightened . You enter the sanctum.
                    Roundtime: 2 seconds.
                    Obvious paths: out.
                    You also see Tamboura.

                    [Private Sanctum]
                    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.

                    >look tamboura

                    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.

                    >look 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.
                    Tamboura recites:

                    "You are my sun, my day is dark without you."

Zed turns toward Tamboura.
Zed recites:
"You are the nile of my heart, the waters of your love feed my soul."
Tamboura recites:
"You are my man, through this world and all the worlds to come."
Zed recites:
"You are my woman, and I pledge you my love.  I swear it to you on the breath
and the blood of Hermes."
Tamboura recites:

"I take up your pledge and return it to you one hundredfold."
Zed recites:

"No one can ever come between us. Nothing can ever part us."
Tamboura recites:

"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...
