The Lost

The Tranquil Warmth

The Spirit it awakens....

You are in awe and wonder, your senses tingle as your body feels refreshed in the warmth of the light. Again looking around you feel a cool breeze blowing onto you and it is then you see 3 figures moving towards you amongst the trees, closer they move at first they appear to be men but as they break the tree line and enter the clearing you can now see the are a bipedal frog humanoid they wear nothing but a loin cloth and all three carry ornate staffs though you sense the one in the middle is the leader. they continue approaching until only a few feet away then stop they all bow, you try to say something but no sound comes from your lips however they reply with words forming in your mind.
“Roger we have waited a long time for you to reach this place – we have watched your journey and seen your actions, some have been good others not so. now it is time to start a new journey and right some of your wrongs and to grow and discover the new, while reflecting the old” the three of them bow slightly and then continues “Now come with us Roger – take the first steps on this journey”.

roger bows in response after all its only polite “before i do, who are you?” roger says reasonably accepting of the whole thing. strange things happen after all.

Again the words dont seem to make it out of your mouth, but none the less they understand your thoughts, they answer “We are all and none it is our job to guide you” they bow “Are you ready to start?”.

The Tranquil Warmth
 

“yes, of course lead the way.” roger reply’s and then follows them

The Tranquil Warmth
 

They bow and start leading you towards the vegetation, as you enter the edge you notice your not treading or floating but moving through the foliage – and it is odd and eerie that as you move through a plant you get a quick glance at the life its lead. Your mind is silent and you sense no further conversation, time passes at a rate you do not follow and you cant tell if it has been a minute or an hour but a time latter the pace slows to a stop the three frogmen bow and your sees the words “We have arrived, we will wait here for you when you are ready to return” with that they bow and dissolve into the woods. You are now standing in the middle of a woods, with your ears you can hear the faint trickle of water, and your nose can detect the slight aroma of blossom and flowers.

“now what i wonder. well ive been back might as well go forwards.” roger says moving towards the sound of water. as he floats along he examines the area carefully with all his senses.

Again as described this is bliss, you are warm, the air smells nice, you feel no pain and discomfort, you feel rejuvenated. You float further on and the trees begin to thin slightly and you can now see a pool of water, there is a waterfall that begins in mid-air and from the pool rises a female figure. As you get closer it is obvious she is human (Roll Please)
She beckons you to come closer, your toes descend into the pool and your body follows you feel cool now though you dont shiver or feel the transition. Stopping waist deep she holds out her arms to you.
Tell me what you are thinking please

roger is amazed at all this. however no matter how hard he tries he cant shake the feeling that he has been here before. yet he cant remember. he asks the lady “what is this place, who are you and why does this all feel so familiar”

The Tranquil Warmth
 

“You have always been here Roger” she replies “This pool is your life and your journeys”.
She waves her right hand through the water, and you see your life portrayed before you from your early days, your mother and father, growing up, the family business, your career on a merchant ship. Of particular interest, (and these visions go on for ages though time does not seem to be lineal here) is a scene with your Grandfather giving a man a small vial followed by the IronKnight Starport executive dead, and back to your Grandfather looking dismayed. further on you see the scene from Tr’Darro and your sins there, you see yourself looking over the stolen picture and you realise the Lady in the water is the same as the one in the picture.
She silently continues your life so far, and appears to be neutral to your actions be they good or bad, finally when your life so far ends she speaks to your mind “Now Roger this is your futures” she now waves her left hand through the water. You see Ripley behind bars and on his way back to prison, you see yourself on the Gavel with command pips Yardley and Callaghan nowhere to be seen, you see more of the frog men priests and a pool of water and you sense a difference in your mind, the image blurs sharply you now see the Blackheart it is firing at you and your ship is hit and you are running to the escape hatches, you see the sweeping plains of Audl Lota and a GCarrier gliding along with a huge dust plume behind it and Jefferson’s smiling face, you see your Grandfather lying on the ground a pool of blood spreading out around him you see the tip of a sword dripping with his blood following the sword edge up it ends in your hand!!! a burning sensation hits you in the middle of the chest like an icy bolt of super chilled water you feel your heart begin to slow and your limbs feel numb, you fall backwards you are aware of the cold burning on your chest and put your hand up to it – you are wearing the medallion, everything goes black.
