Bethen, the Lost Dream
Ten Thousand Gates > Conversing in the Doorway of the First Coin

Hold back your ax, Ulvath! Hold! A dream-path, a guide ... this spirit stands astride a path. No...yes, but it shifts, it shifts. There are too many paths here, too many and twining about!

Spirit, stand, we do not threaten - we shelter from this rain that burns.

Ulvath! This dream has need of speaking! You can see neither nightmare nor venom spirit by hide and fat, color and teeth. All can appear as any, and any may show the way; you must listen to me in this, King's Champion!
