Your bower walls are winding trees.
Crowns aflame with breaking day,
A-tremble in the breeze.
Send your wandrings to the sky,
Set your mantle shining bright,
Outrun the blood-red eventide
Outshine the stars at night.
Let your weary steps be swayed
Far from your hearth, far from your home.
Life and longing now forbade
When to the witchs realm you roam.
Be wary, fear the cursed gaze
Weathered face and eye of stone,
Embers in the ashes blaze,
And you are waxen to the bone.
No weary falling of the limb!
No sight to see the sunrise dim!
No touch to feel the fallen snow!

Having never ventured so far out of Candlekeep, Imoen seemed to find the forests of the Sword Coast to be a beautiful mystery, sharing Allesyn's enthusiasm. The trees smelled wonderful to Allesyn's elven senses and she took a deep breath, capturing the essence of the woods in her lungs.
"I think we've all seen enough waking hours to take a short break," a stern voice sounded from a distance. Jaheira strode over to the two young women, dropping her quarterst

A chill wind swept dust and leaves across the stone beneath our feet. The moon was already high; it was nearing midnight now. Nighttime. Her time. I would have much preferred to storm the crypts at high noon, but Imoen's condition pushed me forwards. Although I had been soulless for a much shorter time, I was already feeling the effects. I didn't want to know what she was g
