I can see the rest of the sentence now, but before the second half was blank.

She could no longer wait... it was time. Meditation had been going on for days, she had prepared both physically and mentally for weeks.

Letheria stalked quietly into the northern Feywood, silent and prepared. Her fate now lay in her own hands, the fate she was going to hand to powers unseen, for better or worse.

She laid out the offering, the components, with a catalyst of Phoenix Feathers and Dragon's Blood. It was all gone. All a piece of what she was giving up.

"To my Winged Mother, Aerdrie, I give the blood of your hated enemy!"

"To the Black Archer, I give you the skin of your hated enemy!"

"To the Lady of beauty, I give you gems befitting of your hair!"

"To the sea and storms, I give you gems befitting of your powers!"

"To the Father of All, I give you the symbols of your people!"


With the offering of the Phoenix, I ask for rebirth!

Light blinded her, wind whipping wildly as her prayer was answered. Judgment came, her senses wavering. She suddenly felt very cold, before the world went black...

"Look, Aeriel look!"
"I'm coming!"
"Come quick, I think she's hurt!"

Leth groaned, head down on some sort of floor. She didn't feel much like moving nor answering the children running about or prodding at her. Her hands twitched as she forced her fingers to move. She felt as if she had become human, and was waking up from sleep. It was the only thing she could compare her current state to.

"She's moving! She's moving, go get help!"

More little footsteps ran away, followed several minutes later by the heavier sounds of adults. Leth began to squirm, attempting to stand.

"Hold on there, you're fine. Calm down, don't move. You must have suffered a nasty fall there." One of the voices said. It was male.

"Yeah." A second one chimed in. "You didn't break your wings."

Wings?

It was about that moment Leth realized the strangers were speaking Auran.

Styvn watched silently from the shadows, as he was asked. Leth worked for a long time, placing a myriad of items on the ground in precise positions until they formed a pattern. The pattern was the outline of a great bird. After what seemed like an eternity, she began the ritual by calling to her goddess. As she progressed through the ritual, the wind began to howl, and then there was a light that grew in intensity until Styvn was forced to shield his eyes. Suddenly, there was silence. When Styvn looked up, she was gone. Not a trace. He looked about frantically, but there were no tracks of any kind. Leth had not walked away, and nothing that walked upon the earth had carried her. She simply vanished.

After searching the clearing in the forest thoroughly, Styvn decided the gods had taken Leth, and there was nothing he could do at the present time. He would have to wait until there was some word, or perhaps a sign from the gods that would tell him what her fate was.

It bothered him that Leth had not warned him in a more direct fashion that she might vanish. After contemplating the conversation they had before she started the ritual, he realized she had warned him in her own way. And now, he would do as she had asked. He would feed Aran every day.

Bob Johnson-human, large meat shield. (player loggin = Kun Tao)

Bor'el Greenleaf-elf, healer, priest of Corellon. (player loggin = Kun Tao)

John Smith-human, blacksmith. (player loggin = Gregor Wrymbane)

Rosco Underhill-halfling, "Underhill family" hit man. (player loggin = Gregor Wrymbane)

And a host of alternates that I won't bother listing here.

Kings are fools, and nations of men greater fools, to do the bidding of such men and be commanded by their pettiness.... and to die for their whims.

It had been surreal, and perhaps a little bit surprising for Letheria. She had not truly understood the weight of the ritual she had preformed. It seemed it not only allowed her a change, it also gave her a change of scenery.

Perhaps the most surprising was looking into a mirror for the first time. Change inside and out had left her with white hair, and dusty white wings.

Hm... she supposed she must look not unlike Eshtarra by this point.

The priests on the mountain side had given her shelter and food, but treated her with wonderment and suspicion. She appeared as one of them, but knew nothing of their homeland. They wanted to test her intent, whatever that meant.

"Lady Letheria, the Priestess wishes to meet with you."

Leth looked up from her meditations towards the entrance of the room she had been held in. A large avarial male stood, dressed in a leather harness and breeches, blocking her exit. He motioned for her to follow through the sweeping mountain halls. Avarial architecture was open and free, glass and crystal work built into walls and many windows. Plants, flowered and not, hung from anywhere they could cling. However, it looked to large and foreign to Leth.

The deeper they traveled into the crystal spires, the more temperate the climate seemed to become. Wind whistled through small airducts placed all about the indoor gardens.

The temple was a sight to behold, despite being deep in the mountain, there was a clear open ceiling with birds singing their many songs among the canopy of trees. A fountian emptied into the center, reflecting the many colors around. Next to it sat a priestess, with long dark hair and dusty grey wings.

"Priestess Icaria, I have brought the newcomer here as you asked." Leth's escort spoke, quietly. The Priestess looked up, appearing aged and kind.

"Good, you may leave, she is not our prisoner."

The escort nodded and turned away, the priestess finally laying eyes on Leth.

"So tell me, child, how did you arrive here?"

Perhaps it was her kind, motherly eyes. Perhaps it was a gentle tone or quiet movements. Perhaps it was her offering of a lovely mint tea...

Or maybe it was the various posted guards who looked like they could smell lies that made Leth ever so compelled to tell her story without hiding any of her acts she was less proud of. She retold leaving her home, landing on Thain, her times as wingless, and her arrival to the mountains she sat in now. The priestess did not judge outwardly, nodding and listening.

"You asked then, for a new life?" She inquired as the story came to a close, sipping from her glass goblet.
"I did." Leth replied.
"Then why is it such a surprise that you ended up here?"

Leth bit her lower lip. "I hardly know where I ended up. Where is this place?"
"You are in the Snow Eagle peaks, secluded and safe. Don't worry, child, you are home now."
"Home?"
"Of course, if you were sent here clearly you're supposed to stay with your people now. It's where you belong."

Leth shifted uncomfortably, frowning. "I have a home where I came from."
"With races of the ground? That is no place for you. You were clearly sent here for a reason, and that reason is to be with your people."
"But I don't even know any of you."
"You will with time, child. Clearly you are blessed, your place is here in these temples. I will arrange for better quarters for you. You may explore as you like, it must feel like ages since you stretched your wings!"
"I am not a prisoner, then?" Leth sounded suspicious.
"Of course not, child. Now go, you should explore your new home."
