Bethen, the Lost Dream
Ten Thousand Gates > An Impromptu Picnic in a Starlit, Ancient Arena

This Hunger he speaks of is not an entity to be slain by blade or ax, Ulvath, nor to be survived by you or I, this much is clear. Can you not feel it? It is ... awakening. Yes, awakening, and narrowing the path of our dream by the moment.

A suspicion is growing in me regarding the ways and events that have led me here to this Void, as you call it, but you will make that clear, will you not? Leli may find your wine and spiced plates irresistible, but I do not feel your part in this dream path - and I am not so trusting. Are you promising a timely way from this place of death, back to the known ways and spirit guides, or do you merely employ your unusual insight to taunt those who have doomed themselves?
