The whole chapter's going up tomorrow night per usual, but I thought I'd toss up a copy of the first scene for you guys, y'know, because I can.

=========

Chapter IV - The Great Sea

I dreamed.

I was in darkness – not exactly…

I was in a void. I was in nothingness, in the shadow between the layers of reality. Then I felt a terrific tug, and without warning, I landed—

—atop a low hill. It was night, and the two moons hung above me in the night sky, each of them crescent, neither of them pinned to the northern sky. The stars were brighter than I’d ever seen them, and the air smelled sweet, as though a machine had never churned out fumes, as though the only fires that had ever darkened the skies had been started by lightning, and washed away by thunderstorms.

The hill, covered in soft grass and bushes, rose out of a pristine forest, so green that it shone emerald even in the moonlight. This place was wholly, utterly calming.

I turned, and, away to the south stood another hill, rising like the one on which I stood, and there in the moonlight, I could just barely make out the shape…

…of a woman, a pale-skinned elf, maybe – I couldn’t tell at the distance. She sat in meditation, her eyes shut against the cool night breeze. A gossamer gown fell from her shoulders down over her body, and her cascading hair was green as the trees and grass. I stared at her, peering through the darkness across the distance between us, and then her voice, soft but terrible, whispered in my ear—

I have brought you to here, it said, but your coming is as of the footsteps of doom, Tashunke Bloodhoof. You must remember this place and return to it: Time is short, and the world’s ancient designs hang now by a thread...

And then, without a moment’s warning—

—I was flung back across the void—

—and awoke.

Yeah, it sucks to wake up from dreams with hot babes in them. Wink
