The Vale Rules

Plastered to the wall of the Magistrate's Office, you see a long, yellowed with age scroll. On it are small, yet precise letters. You will later come to recognise this lettering as that of The Lady Illusion. Stepping closer to see what is written, you find yourself staring at a list of rules for your new home as well as general information about the Vale. You realise that you had best heed these words - if only to stay out of trouble.

Elfsong Tavern

On Stage

Mounting the steps towards the stage, you realise that Elfsong is dark save for the light of a single torch which halos your face in soft, yellow light. Your features can clearly be seen and the patrons have quieted. Vale tradition demands it, others expect it - and now it's your turn to tell us who you are, from whence you hail and anything else you care to reveal by the soft glow of torchlight.

Common Room

Your introduction over, and warm welcomes passed, you step down and it is now time to mingle with the other inhabitants of the Vale. The soft buzz of conversations, renewed after your speech, reaches your ears as you reach for your complimentory tankard. Your opinions and thoughts and even questions are welcome here, you may say they are even expected. Speak up and let yourself be heard!

The Gallery

Here, along the quieter halls of Elfsong, you find many interesting objects lining the walls, crowding glass cabinets and sagging shelves. Upon closer inspection, you realise that these are the artistic products of the inhabitants of the Vale. At the end of the hall, you find a glass cabinet that is completely empty. There are letters etched into a small silver plaque and as you read by lamplight, you realise that it is your name. The cabinet is yours. Now all you need to do is fill it.

Game Corner

Whether you find the atmosphere of the Common Room stifling, or you need some space, or even a small break, you come to this room. However, you find that it is only slightly less stifling, with only a little more space and almost no opportunity for a break as the patrons beckon you towards games, quizzes, questionaires and general frivolity. You are handed paper and quill and welcomed with gleaming smiles and cunning glints in many eyes. Can you win?

Hall of Mirrors

The Fall and Rise of the House of Ainsley

A tall stately mirror attracts your attention. The gilded plaque at its base emits a soft glow of its own and you lean down to read its faint words. Reaching out a hand, you feel a ripple of warmth - and an equal shiver of foreboding from the gently swirling surface of the mirror. Your hand tingles with an unknown force and a slow creeping mist begins to swirl at your feet. You glimpse darkness beyond the rippling surface of the Mirror and you stumble back with a cry of alarm as a grinning skull looms up and barks a laugh before fading away. You feel the pull of the Mirror and cannot look away as a glowing red gem swirls into your vision backed by the cold light of a blue moon. Whispers; soft, sweet and terrible, reach out to you, telling to come forth, willing you to step through - beguiling, terrifying and utterly compelling. Your breath comes swiftly and your heart races. What comes next is your choice. They call to you. Will you answer?

The Circle

Glittering lights assail your vision as a Circle of Mirrors battle for your attention. Through some you glimpse visions of beauties battling monsters, of demons and angels, of wars and peaceful glades. You see fairies, elves, mythical deities and in one you even see downtown Chicago; being demolished; by aliens. Then you realise that some of the mirrors are empty still of images, their rippling surfaces glinting dully, their plaques devoid of words. A hand descends and you look over your shoulder. A man stands beside you - bathed in both light and shadow. When he speaks, you feel at ease. "Choose your Mirror - step into a world already created, forge your destiny there, or step into an empty one and make your own world that others can step into." Warmth flows from him even as swirling shadows cloak his figure, "I am here, keeping the Mirrors safe. Escape for a time - but be sure to return to me eventually." Then he is gone and the Mirrors resume their battle of light for your attention.

The Crimson Room

Plush red carpet muffle your footsteps as you wander further into the Hall. Flickering red light captures your attention and you turn into a room full of antique standing Mirrors placed so that none face another. The plaques of each pulse with dark red light and their words glitter golden. Like the Hall, some Mirrors have empty swirling surfaces - and others are filled. Your head swirls in heady pleasure as you glimpse lovers combined in ecstasy, the darkened rooms full of forbidden fruit, the sensuous line of neck, the curve of an ankle and the rippling contours of perfection. Tension lines your muscles and you quiver with anticipation. Choose a Mirror, make your own pleasure, or step through to a world already crafted. Participate.... and enjoy.

Ancient Library

 
No new posts

The Scribe's Hall

The Ancient Library looms in front of you. At the same time gothic and dreamy looking, its architecture draws your eyes directly towards the great wooden double doors that seem to be eternally closed. Inset right in front of you are a smaller set of doors, both slightly ajar and you realise as you edge closer that lamplight is glowing from within. Pushing the doors open, you blink as the lamp flares from the sudden gust of wind you bring with you. Inside, you pause to stare at the many denizens of the Library. Etched in wood across a high placed beam, you read the words, "Scribe's Hall", and realise that this is where the storytellers of the Vale come to pen their works. And to teach others the gift of writing.

The Vault

Passing through the Scribe's Domain, you find yourself wandering the Library. In search of what, you do not know. Your feet carry you deeper and deeper into the labrinynth of tomes and soon you come across The Vault, hidden deep behind the texts that have been written by knowledge seekers about this new world. As you pause at the door, something draws you inside and to your delight you discover rows of spaces dedicated to those Valians who only want to write fiction. The Librarian in charge places a new tome on the shelf and beckons you forwards to read and partake in the literary swirl. Then she smiles and hands you your own set of papers and ink - with the hope that you will someday add some words of your own.
