Reality shifts overhead, the very air trembling beneath an alien pressure bearing upon your mind. A brief glimpse of a terrifying vista is afforded underfoot, overlaying the here and now with white skies upon red stars dripping burning ice.


Avechna, the Avenger says, "Mortals! We shall continue, no matter what happens. Turn your gazes away from the outside. We shall focus on the Seal, and the Seal alone. These visions are simply that; there is no threat to the Basin other than our abandonment of our duty."

Astral screams rip through reality as the air ripens with an overwhelmingly fetid stench, the breath of death made manifest, that seems to intensify with each passing moment.
The form of Avechna radiates a wash of pure, white light - it surges over you and banishes both the foul scent and the painful screeches.
You see Avechna, the Avenger shout, "You may try all that you wish, Ghani n'Rotri, but you may not harm these mortals here. They stand under My protection, and they will claim this Seal whether you desire it or not."

Avechna winces, clasping at His head as a vicious barb of yellow light lashes against His face.
Avechna, the Avenger says, "But - no! No, that is - what?!"
Globs of gelatinous goo precipitate out of the aether, raining down bloodred slime that emits a sickly sweet odour of fetid meat.
Avechna all but growls, swinging an arm outwards and casting the foul gunk from reality with little more than a thought.
Avechna, the Avenger states, "Remain. Persevere. We are halfway, mortals - one amongst you shall claim this Medallion, and all shall be well."

Flares of vibrant colour erupt through the air, golds and pinks and blacks and whites melding together into impossible colours and shapes. Alien images and concepts float lazily through the formation, giving visions of far-off wonders laced with an inexplicable paranoia of the unknown.
But Avechna remains at your side, a towering bastion of purity. He raises His eyes to the sky and booms: "No!"
Vivid white washes over all things, appearing as a moment of complete blindness; when your sight returns, the impossible images have faded and are forgotten.

As you left (3p and 1p, gave Highly Neurotic.):
As Braem turns to leave, a whip-like lash of golden energy surges forth from nothingness and envelops his head in a suffocating bind, pulling it backwards as deep yellow light forms a sickly aura around him. When the energy fades, Braem is left with a slightly glassy look that remains as he departs.
As you turn to leave, a whip-like lash of golden energy surges forth from nothingness and envelops your head in a tight bind. It burns, and covers your nose and mouth, but gasping for breath is no longer a concern to you: it has covered your eyes, and you can see ... something. Everything. Horns and scales and flesh and bones and screams and too many things, too many, all at once seeping into your mind and - and you have left the room. The energy is gone from your face, breath rushes hot and hard back into your lungs...but you can still see the things that should not be.

    I'm confused. There's a 13th astral sphere? Is it Serpentarius?
    If I'm not good enough for Lusternia, then it is no longer good enough for me.
  • XeiiXeii Member Posts: 201 Fabled
    I think that was Shallamar. Never found a way to that myself :(
    "May this be the first of many new experiences for you, Heart of the Crescendo," Czixi says, smile quirking. "The future is an exciting place."

    Ghosting around.

    There was some talk about it being some rock? I don't know, Could be Shallamar like Xeii said?

    Shallamar used to be (not sure if it still use) the newbie area that you first entered when you created a new character and the fates would have you walk around the place to get you used to moving and commands.

    I believe the "13" answer was a result of Avechna being attacked by Ghani throughout the quiz. He must've made him fumble or somesuch - and it might be some delicious foreshadowing.

    All incorrect. There's a little single room "sphere" that is basically nothing but a dock. You can reach it via astral aetherspace if you know where to look. While there is no node, this is considered the "13th sphere" from a lore perspective, and it's just really easy to forget it exists.

    I may or may not have been dropped onto this room before, but I wasn't aware it was a sphere.

    It all comes down to technicality, I suppose! I know I've definitely heard it referred to at the 13th sphere in the distant past. That said, whether or not it could eventually be more is not for me to say. Maybe the little mention might be some hint of foreshadowing after all! Or maybe it's just a reminder that it exists, period.
  • MaligornMaligorn Windborne Member Posts: 2,721 Transcendent
    I know about the rock, I just don't think it counts as an astral sphere. But w/e.
