The Heroes have just crashed their boat into the rocky shores of an island where Echo is tied to a stone table, forced to endure the torture of having an enormous black bird devour her insides, only to leave allowing them to regenerate so he can return a few hours later to devour them once more.

As the Heroes rush forward to battle the black bird it explodes into thousands of inky globs of slime and night that merge and twist and shift into various deadly forms. Titus is decapitated, Argharna is impaled by swords, Rae’s limbs are sliced from her body and Aaun’s chest explodes with spewing black deadly gas.

In a fit of despair Echo calls upon the Gaia and the power of her plea is so pure that her spirit enters Echo’s body, making her the Avatar of Gaia. She immediately destroys the bird, and the fills the Heroes with healing energy, reviving them from wounds and death. She then turns and shatters the Sea of Souls, releasing the spirits that were trapped there fated to fade away. Then finally, in a burst of white light Echo ascends to Heaven as the Heroes are returned to the tavern.

Narrator
And then there is a resounding crash, and the boat slams hard into the rocky shores of the island, the front of it splintering, a sharp stony outcropping piercing the front of the vessel, holding it in place like an anchor.
Narrator
The waves crash angrily against the sides of the vessel.
No one
`doesn’t stop rowing, hardly realizing they’ve hit anything`

Aly (12)
*almost falls out of the boat but regains her balance an clings tightly to whoever is nearest*
Echo
:: Echo has never seen them, she can only look upward, only sees the naked head of the Bird as it swallows her flesh and dives cruelly again ::

Aaun’or Serpentine
~The sound of splintering wood rought him to life. all he did was lift, and run to the front of the boat, which was fourty some feet, and fifteen perfect meters… He had to see if his baby was…. Unable for her next venture.~
Titus Silverhide
-He’s already leaping off the boat, shaking his head to clear it and roaring at the top of his lungs as he starts towards Echo and the mighty bird-
Narrator
There is a huge hole directly in the front bottom of the boat, with a large rocky spear jutting at an angle through it.
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::moves to scramble off the boat and race towards echo, flying and shooting a flaming wave at the bird::
Titus Silverhide
-Again he barrells forward with that gait from his wounds-
Argharna Silverhide
-Follows behind Titus, pulling the wolf stone sword and axe from his back, throwing the axe towards the giant bird.-
Aga’zisk
<Follows after Titus..>
Narrator
The bird turns suddenly as heroes charge and flames are shot, it lifts its great wings outwards and leaps into the air, shooting up above you, and then crashing downwards towards Titus its giant beak open to devour him.

*shakes lightly, breathing slowly, eyes wide she feels the pains begin to fade lifting a hand to touch her nesk and side*
Nina Noir
-slowly sits up dusting herself, not breathing yet, but waiting, instead are lots of long sighs, not of relief, but they are there, then her eyes lift up to see the light, the glow, the miracles and the wonders, flesh back in place, she poked her arms, her stomach, doubtful looked around-
No one
`summons up energy from who knows where, the warmth suffusing him with strength, and sits up, looking across the now empty battlefield and scanning for his mate`
Narrator
Impossible sensations begin to flood you, a sense of power and life, of honor and hope, these feelings rush into your conscious selves even as your flesh begins to mend, as the blood grows crust over old wounds, as even scars begin to heal, the power of the Healer of Hellifyno combined with the living magic of Holy Gaia exploding from Echo like spears of happiness
Aga’zisk
<Light comes back to his eyes, the amber gow returning to it’s full glory, glass limbs regrowing, energy returning, cuts vanishing. He pushes himself up and stares once more, at everyone.. But dosn’t get all warm and tingly because he dosn’t have emotions.>
Echo
:: she stands naked and glorious on the stone table, her long, long hair flying around her as if in the wind, with Aelu, the Healer who is a snake, coiled on her head like a crown, his own small head lifted high ::
Narrator
More light radiates from Echo, the avatar of Gaia, and as it does the darkness in the sky recedes, replaced by a bright blue sky.
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::knows gaia’s energy now.. recognizes it faintly, and welcomes it.. breathing in and out as her body feels good as new, better than… warm..::
Titus Silverhide
-He drags himself towards Echo with this newpower, this new strength and he kneels. He kneels before the Lady, the channel through which Gaia is speaking, healing-
No one
`feels his spirits soar`
Aaun’or Serpentine
~His lungs came next, and as the Heart beats, and his broncule tube is regenerated, he does gasp for breath. Tissue matter regrows within his ribs, qand his jaw reforms from a liquid bone. His eyes move once more and roll into the back of his head as if he was trying to finish the scream he would have experianced before the all too sudden death.~
Aly (12)
*lifts self off the ground to sit, scanning herself over incredilously
Nina Noir
-everyone was fine, everything was brilliantly shinning, unrealistic even, she moistened her lips with a slipping tongue, she closed her eyes and felt it, breath slowly filling in and prowling out- in heaven everything is right
Narrator
This is more than the power of a goddess, this is the power within life itself, the glorious gasp of existence that fuels every living being.
Narrator
You tremble with you, you shake and shiver with the heady sensations of it glowing within you.
Daloki
<the Song of Being fills her as never before, knitting some of her minds together, empowering the best of them but … the marks of Dis remain, the scars on her back remain>
Argharna Silverhide
-Rolled over onto all fours, taking a deep breath before letting out a long drawn out howl.-
Titus Silverhide
Gaia -he whispers -embracing the warmth, the power of his creator-
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::holds her chest, cradling the feeling.. keeping it::
Titus Silverhide
-wonders if he gets a new eye and hand through this healing, or if those are permenant scars-

Aaun’or Serpentine
~As soon as muscle had coated his bones Aaun curled into himself, his regrown lungs working furiously.~
Echo
:: the radiance swells farther, out over the Sea of Souls, and the screaming and wailing – stops ::
No one
`can’t help it and howls, letting the sudden influx of joy take him over, so welcome after all the despair and pain. only silence comes from his throat, but the muscles flex, his throat works, and his head is flung back`
Aly (12)
*her eyes blue eyes wander over to the goddess, tears filling them, she had naver known such a feeling, it was quite unknown to her*
Narrator
The air around you almost seems to dance with the melody of the music that has always been within your souls.
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::stands up slowly.. looking around, taking everything in::
Titus Silverhide
-He tosses his head back and howls, howls with joy and life, passion and strength-
Narrator
The roaring waves of the Sea of Souls grow quiet and calm.
Aaun’or Serpentine
~Would a body regenerate how it was? or is there going to be some kind of change?~
Narrator
Everyone’s body has returned to its previous state… better even…. old scars are gone, old wounds have finally healed.
Aga’zisk
<Still looks the same.>
Echo
:: her voice rings like Life, like Joy itself :: These souls have borne enough. Eons of pain have purified them. Let them be free! :: A tremendous thunderclap booms through the Abyss, and the black waters lift and then fall, evaporating and sinking away ::
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::her voice… drops, just drops… shock making every cell in her body numb::
Argharna Silverhide
-Slowly stands, his body clear of any battle scars he had obtained. He turned, looking to Titus and Echo, rubbing his wrist where they were cut off.-
Narrator
The spirits, who have grown calm at the presence of Life itself…. now begin to float into the air. They no longer scream or howl. Rather their faces look calm… serene even… as they drift lazily into the now bright blue atmosphere… free
No one
`gawks`
Aaun’or Serpentine
~Aaun was returned as an idol of purity huddled in rags that barely held together, shivering and shaking… His hide was of the purest snow white, and his scales looked like the pearls plucked from the grandest of oceans.~
Aga’zisk
<Stares.>
Aly (12)
*watches with wide eyes, mesmerized*
Daloki
<13 souls are drawn to Daloki and enter her mind>
Raelin Wolvarian Aero

Titus Silverhide

Argharna Silverhide
Life…
No one
`stares`
Aly (12)
*she shakes her head* wow *there were no words to describe this, she thaught*
Aga’zisk
<Stares with Aiden, standing next to Aiden, building a double stare of awesome sauce.>
Echo
:: the Goddesses – Echo and Gaia – look down now upon the Heroes :: By your sacrifice and suffering, you are redeemed, my children. My blessing is upon you all.
Titus Silverhide
-places two fingers to his forehead and revels in the spoken words-
Argharna Silverhide
-Looked back towards Echo as he kneeled down, lowering his head to her as he raised two fingers to his eyebrows.-
Echo
:: are they two, or are they one? Her voice spoke as one, surely ::
Narrator
A warmth, much like the light and yet deeper, and more personal, settles within each of the Heroes, and you feel some of the dark and restlessness within your souls grow still with peace.
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::suddenly smiles::
Echo
:: then her radiant face is transfigured with joy :: Bless you, my children!
Titus Silverhide
-Rae’s smile is contagious and he breaks out in a goofy, lop-sided grin-

`lolls his tongue`
Aga’zisk
<Stares.. Feels left out..>
Aly (12)
*ishe gives a soft smile intranced*
Argharna Silverhide
-Grinned, raising his head as he stood back up.-
Nina Noir
-she doesn’t smile but live the moment through all within, just little stares here and there, mellowy voices filling her sense of hearing, warmth and balance again, she listens to her, taking in to the last of her words, respectfully, with promises, with owe-
Narrator
Aga feels it too, some of the twisting of the Weaver unwinding, some of his old soul slipping back into his conscious being… only a little… like an ember of hope within his heart.
Echo
:: she looks at Aga’zisk :: You are my child, too, young one.
Echo
:: the radiance contracts, surrounding her till her form is cloaked in a pillar of white light. Within it her white body slowly becomes indistinguishable from the pillar, and then it ascends into the sky ::
Aga’zisk
<Then definaty smiles big and massive showing rows of glass teath or somthing and lolling his tongue, espically at what Echo says.>
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::wipes off her face, the blood on her body.. shivering, warmed..::
Daloki
<kneels, tears streaming down her face>
Aaun’or Serpentine
~Aaun was not moving, but his gaze peaked over his knees… watching the woman rise as he just….Sits in what was his own carnage.~
Aly (12)
*watches in amazement, tilting her head back*
Narrator
You are left with the haunting melody of the Song of Life whispering in your ears.
Argharna Silverhide
-Watched, his face going back to a neutral expression.-
Narrator
You stand on a glowing island beneath a blessed blue sky. The sea of souls is gone and all that is left is a soft sandy depression.
No one
`crawls over to Raelin, needing to share the experience by being closer to her`
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::races over to him and dives at him when he gets close enough::
Daloki
<slowly she gets to her feet. The Abyss is gone. The place that so terrified her – transformed. Her skin glows with a faint golden radiance for a time>
Aly (12)
*is just absolutely astounded*
No one
`wraps her up in his heavily muscled, fuzzy embrace`
Aga’zisk
<Aga walks over to Dal needing to share the experiance with some one and he wraps a arm around her and embraces her in a familuar hug, thats odd and glassy, yet it’s somthing.>
Nina Noir
-can’t think of other thing than taking off her boots and curling her toes in the sand giggling like a toddler-
Titus Silverhide
((Has to go. Applauds the DM’s with fury))
Argharna Silverhide
-Looked down at his hands, opening and closing them as he rememberd having them cut clean off.-
Titus Silverhide
((night ))
Daloki
<she throws her arms around Aga and hugs him tightly>
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::clings to bits of his fur and curls close against him, his warmth cascading over her like a welcome cloak.. shuddering:: thought i was going to lose you..
Titus Silverhide

`doesn’t respond, knowing she must have felt him die, and knowing what that feels like. just hugs her, reassuring her of his distinct aliveness`

<Aga picks Dal up, and holds that embrace there, for as long as he can, the small part of his soul that slipped back into his concious being is just enough for him to feel slightly, oh so slighty, but it’s been so long that it feels amazing to him, his voice holds a shed of joy to it.> We did it Dal… How are we getting home?
Aga’zisk
<So slight that it’s almost not there, but there is just a iota of joy in his voice.>
Daloki
<laughs – a free and joyous sound> I have no idea.
Narrator
There is a brilliant flash of light all around you, its like an embrace of pure illumination and warmth. It pierces you, shooting through you, making every cell in your body burst and tingle with joy.
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::wiggles up to grab his muzzle between her hands and kiss every inch, rubbing her cheek against his and scratching behind his ears::
Raelin Wolvarian Aero
::then closes her eyes::
Narrator
And then you are all back in the Motel. And though it is dank and terrible, it looks a little bit better now… somehow.
Aaun’or Serpentine
~Better by comparison…~
Aga’zisk
<Runs off to bed and appluads Narrator and Storyteller and All hope, even though the other two are gone, still gives them a round of bristling appluase.>
