A lurker in the neighbourhood.Inn of the Foxes, Silver Trailings, outside the Realm Below the Mountain
Morning's first light fell on Kazimier. He offered quiet prayers to the Lightbringer in thanks for the new day. His sunbeam amulet caught the light, spreading it through the room in a rainbow of colour. Kazimier knelt on the floor, making sure the amulet remained in the sun's light. He chanted, a song of praise to the Lightbringer asking for wisdom and clarity. The kaleidoscope of colour on the walls coalesced, coming together to form the image of a wriggling serpent with scales of red, blue, and yellow. The image crawled along the wall. A bright flash of white light struck the snake. When the light cleared, the serpent had two heads. The snake reared to strike, then the image dissolved back to the rainbow of colours.
Kazimier lowered his head. "I understand." He kissed his sunbeam amulet, then let it go. The elf got to his feet, straightening his clothes. A knock came from the door. Kazimier answered it, opening the door to see Nyssa and Leomund waiting in the hall. The squire had a hand shielding his eyes from the light. "Good morning," Kazimier greeted.
"Good to see someone wide awake this morning," Nyssa said. "Need to break your fast yet?"
"Not just yet."
"Think the lasses are awake?"
Kazimier stepped out of his room, closing the door behind him. "Only one way to find out." He led the way down to Jyslyn and Wren's room. The elf pounded on the door. Leomund pressed a hand to the side of his head.
