Eldaric also follows the man, putting away his weapons, and looking around to see if anything jogs his memory 'So, those ghosts were ourselves? Interesting. And we heard a voice in the dung-Aether we were in. was that you?'

'The problem being that the spell itself is not a new finding. The ability to enter the Aether has been here for years beyond counting.'

'No, no... what's new is the ability to bend it, twist it in and out of proportion, like clay beneath the supple fingers of an artisan... '

"The man halts his pace around the alabaster room and closes his eyes, lost in some vision in his mind's eye."

'I would bet my feeble life on it that the main problem was in the third line of the runework, just underneath of the s... well. I suppose that's a bit beyond you, isn't it? No matter.'

'... What voice?'

Eldaric pauses at the last words of the old man, and looks at Ross questioningly 'There was... a voice, telling us not yet. And there was a book, it just disappeared...'

Ross muses over this one. "Is there a... command in the Aether someone set up? To send us on a quest of sorts?" He waves the man onwards. "No matter, you may as well keep talking."

" '... A book, hmm?' He pauses. 'I can't be certain of anything at this point. Give me some time to work this out... in the meantime, feel free to wander around the abbey. I do apologize for your current predicament, but you may as well work your memories back up to speed.' "

Ross looks at Eldaric and shrugs. "We may as well."

Eldaric nods agreement to Ross, and begins to take a look around the Abbey, trying to find anything useful, or something he remembers. Suddenly a thought occurs to him, and he spins around to the man 'One more quick question, before you go: How did you bring us back here?'

" 'Eh? Ah, a simple one-way teleportation cantrip. Nothing special.' " He starts to leave again, and then stops and turns around. 'Anything else?'

' Eventually? Yes. As soon as we figure out what precisely went wrong with the first trip in. '

(Gamemaster Commentary: Unless you guys have something in particular you want to check out in the real world (for story and character background purposes), I'm going to skip you guys pointlessly meandering about the complex with nothing to do. My purpose is to entertain, and if you guys stop having fun, then everything's horribly wrong.

I'm guessing we're unarmed? Ask for directions to the mess hall.

You guys are currently unarmed; the weapons were part of the dream and according to Deyn would be "difficult to modify during or before their Aetheric state."

The "crypts" are in fact beds.

"The mess hall seems closer to an arched cathedral than it does a cafeteria; the vaulted ceiling rises some 20ft. overhead. Today, they appear to be serving roast turkey legs, with your choice of simple vegetable and drink."

'I agree. Let's go talk to someone in the mass hall.' Eldaric, after checking to make sure Ross is with him, strides off in the direction of the hall, keeping a lookout for anyone likely to talk to them
