Introduction

The years are no longer recorded, there are too few to care anymore. Those that survived 'The Fall' concentrate on one thing; Surviving. For with no one to enforce the laws the world became lawless, small settlements of good hardworking people destroyed or exploited by those strong and dark of soul. Fear controls the land, and is the constant state of living for all those weakened by the world.

An ancient book was found in the debris of the old world, inside it told tales of beings;

"No one knows how long they have been here or what their true intentions are, but they have been among us for as long as anyone can remember. The problem is that no one remembers. Beings that outlived their own legend, that did not age and wielded powers only the gods could claim. They were known as judgement incarnate, dealing out justice to any and all."

The word of this book and the beings it spoke of spread wide, but never believed. Treated only ever as a story told to children to help them sleep. But deep down all that heard of them, prayed in some small way that they were real and would return...

Today

A short lifespan worth of silent prayers has caused the smallest of sparks, but it is just enough for the great wisdom to send a message to its comrades. A single word and command to those it created; "Return..."

After countless years of peace you had become comfortable in mimicking mortal lives, with no need for powers they feel to disuse. You settled into your lives, enjoying the quiet until you forgot your true names and purposes. By the time The Fall came around you had completely forgotten everything, no power, no name to live up to, you hid when you could and fought meekly when you had to and survived thanks only to a body that would not die. You hear a whisper in your ear 'Return...' Your mind is instantly overwhelmed and you pass into unconsciousness, your true self shown to you in a vision of the past. The greatness that your being once was, your purpose returns to you, but first you must reclaim the powers that lay dead and dormant inside you. You awaken and your life as a god beings anew.....

I awoke in a cold sweat, my head thumping and my thoughts a mess. At first I thought I had just passed out from the heat or something, then my memories slowly began to fall into place. The reason my body refused to die even when it had no reason not to, the odd bouts of strength or speed rarely displayed that were not anywhere near normal. Remembering the truth now I cursed myself for ever forgetting my sacred duty, a duty I had failed in because of laziness and complacency.

A quick scan of my surroundings confirmed what I thought, I had be bought inside to the shade and laid on a cot. I took a few minutes to let all my memories settle and mingle together, the long years I had let my powers dissipate over and allowed myself to slip into this mortal cycle of life. How I had done nothing during The Fall, nothing but make things worse. I shook the thoughts down and gathered myself, finding my strength and pulling myself up to my feet.

It took a few more minutes before I was steady enough to walk and make my way back outside into the glaring sun and desert heat. The few dozen members of our group were doing what we normally did, attempt to find some fertile soil that we might grow crops. Find a spring or hidden well, and several other tasks that might allow us to live a little easier. As I stepped out the door way an old gruff voice came from beside me. "Ah, Tyr. Awake finally eh? We thought you'd finally died on us, you've been out for nearly three days!" I rubbed the side of my head. 'Shit, three days? Really?' "Never did get on well with this heat." "Well that's been irrelevant for near a lifetime now boy, it's all we got. Anyway, you look fit enough, go give Roo a hand other there. He could use a hand searching a well out." I let out a small sigh. 'This is what I've been doing with my time?' I felt shamed that things had come to this. "Right...." I moved to obey his word. Frank was born into this life, its all he had known. He'd done a better job than most keeping a group this size together without bandits or such killing them off. He was too old to work himself now but always managed to have plenty to do. Another bout of guilt as another memory dropped into place, of him asking me to lead when he was gone but with my old memories back I knew I would be leaving soon. Sooner than I would like but for the greater good and to redeem my constant failure over the past few centuries I had to take up my ancient duty once again.

I opened my eyes slowly and at first, there was a blur. I blinked several times and soon I saw thin strings of smoke from burning herbs and sounds of awe around me. "Come back to us. Return to us, my child." I heard the elder's voice and I let out a soft groan as I sat up. I was surrounded by women and a few elders. I looked at the elder that spoke and I lowered my head in thanks to her before I spoke. "I am well, thank you." The women that were near offered small amounts of food and water and they left quietly. I ate and drank slowly as I went over the memories in my head. I was surprised that I had memories of me using some sort of powers, a gift that had been granted to me. I looked down at my hands but my thoughts were interrupted when the elder spoke again. "You sleep for long time child but when you sleep, you speak words. Words from the past." I looked up at the elder in surprise then I quickly looked down. "I-I'm sorry fo-" I stopped when I felt the elder's old frail hand grip firmly on my wrist and I looked in her eyes. Her eyes were dark brown with the grey lining of age and she looked into my eyes and spoke. "Do not be sorry. We have waited for your return and the time could not be more ideal than now. Now that you are ready, tell me your name. Your true name." I looked at the elder and I spoke, my words filled with confidence. "I am Oya."

The air was cold as I awoke, the chill sent shivers down my spine. My eyes fluttered opened and I tried to look around, my vision was blurred and my head was pulsing. “Careful child, don’t try and get up.” A voice spoke in the darkness, “You are hurt, we found you out cold in the forest, please relax till the doctor gets here.” The voice spoke again, it sounded like a man. My eyes finally focused as I looked up at a gruff man, he had a short beard with matching spiky brown hair. He must at least be 6 ft and rather muscular. I blinked hazily, giving him a questioning look, he chuckled a bit, “You look really out of it.” He mused, “Just stay still and don’t get up like I said. The doctor will be here soon, just rest.” He said, I nodded faintly feeling sickly I laid my head back down. The man smiled, “Before you rest… what is your name?” He asked, “… Demeter.” I spoke, as I started to pass out again I heard him talk again, “Demeter... the name of a goddess… it is nice to meet you.” He said, before everything blacked out for me.

As I approached Roo he tossed a shovel to my hands. "Bout time you woke up, dirts as 'ard as Franks skull and twice as thick." He wasn't wrong either, the dirt was compacted till it was as hard as steel. "Do what ya can, Ima see if I can find a pick." I nodded silently as I turned the shovel in my hand and got to work digging into the ground, half heatedly. I thought about how I should leave, whether I should not tell anyone and just leave in the night, let Frank know or just tell everyone? I was conflicted with the guilt of leaving but the even greater guilt that I had forgotten my purpose and let the world fall to what it is now. The guilt had turned to frustration that was broken by a loud crack and snap. Looking down I realized I had driven the blade of the shovel and large part of the shaft deep into the ground, making it snap under the hard earths pressure.

It was deep into the night as I packed with little food and drink would not be missed into a small pack and crept my way outside only to be stopped by Franks deep voice beside me again. "Wondered when you'd wake up. I mean the real you I mean. You've always been a shadow, you smiled, ate, drank, talked but never really lived. Even with that immortal body, you've let love pass you by several times and the chance of a normal life." I had turned to face him at this point. "I stayed silent cause I hoped you'd find someone or something worth fighting for and protecting, it's was I asked you to lead here." I looked down slightly. "I did and it's why I have to leave..." He stepped forward and slapped me on the back. "I know son, which is why I ain't gonna ask you to stay. You got more important things to do than dig holes here. You gotta fix this world." He gave me one of his extremely rare smiles and lifted a bag that was hidden behind him. "Gonna need more than what you got there I'll tell you that much." He pressed the bag into my hands before I could protest. "Now. Piss off and come back you've fixed everything." He gave me an oddly strong push before I could say anything back and moved inside. I stumbled forward a few paces but by the time I turned back he had already gone inside. I breathed deeply and turned back around, heading off into the night.

I stepped out of the healer's tent and I looked around and saw the women and children walk over to me, expression their concern and relief towards me. The children hugged my legs and waist and the women chattered as I confirmed to them that I was fine. Once concerns has been passed, the people decided to throw a celebration. Even with the little food and water that we collect, if there was ever something to celebrate, everyone in the village would participate. I smiled lightly as everyone rushed to get everything ready and while a smile showed on my face, my heart sank. They did not know, but I would have to leave these wonderful people. They were so wonderful and carefree and....suffering. Right when I was about to frown, a child ran over to me and handed me a tambourine. "Come on! Its time to dance!" She grabbed onto my iro, wrapped skirt, and pulled me towards the large fire at the center of the town. People were already dancing, music was playing and I couldn't help but to tap my foot to the beat. The child giggled and she yelled out. "Queen Mother is here! Queen Mother is here!" The villagers yelled out and encouraged me to dance. I smiled and I held up my tambourine. The music stopped and everyone stopped dance. I gave it one shake which was quickly followed by one beat of the drum. I smirked lightly at the drummer and I took two step which was quickly followed my two quick beats of another drummer. I smiled widely and I closed my eyes and soon, my body moved and flowed gracefully, the beats of the drums fell to the beat of my footsteps and I shook my tambourine to keep the beat and soon everyone started dancing, laughing and whooping. This celebration was one of the many ways that helped the village stay energetic and happy. Despite the hardship and suffering, everyone knew how important it was to keep hope alive and to stay positive and I hope that I could fulfill my duty in bringing back the positive change that this world so desperately needed. I opened my eyes and I smiled sadly. While tonight was a night of celebration, it was also a night of good-byes. Except, I was the only one knew that.

It was hours later when I awoken again, I opened my eyes, a man was hovering over me staring into my eyes, I screeched in surprise and punched him out of instinct, he groaned rolling back holding onto his noise, "Ahhhhhh!" he grumbled. I blinked in surprise, "A-Ah... I'm sorry..." I said unsure if I should be or not? The other guy from when I woke up the first time laughed, "Well seems someone is feeling better." He said, I glanced over at him confused, "A-Ah?" I asked, "My apologies Miss Demeter I was just checking out your eyes to see how they looked, I am a healer child..." the man I punched muttered. A woman smiled softly, "That was a brilliant hit though." She giggled and walked over, "Are you hungry child? I can prepare a nice meal for you..." She said. I was about to argue but my stomach growled loudly causing me to blush faintly, "Hnn... yes please..." I said meekly. The lady smiled and nodded softly, "Of course dear.' She said gently and walked off gently to make a meal. I looked back at the healer who smiled, "You healed really well... it seems I am not needed here." he mused, I looked down, "A-Ah... I am sorry about your nose." I said. "It's no trouble, I am glad your okay. Just rest for a few days." he said softly. I nodded my head, bidding him farewell as he walked off. I looked up as the lady came back softly with an amazing smelling bowl of soup, goodness it made my stomach rumble as I licked my lips, "T-Thank you..." I said as she gave me the bowl, "Eat up my child, you need it." She cooed softly. I smiled and nodded gently, eating up, I was grateful to them for helping me... yet it still felt odd being here. I knew I couldn't stay forever....

The dancing, music and celebration lasted all night long. Once the children had been sent off to their beds and the music had died down, the elders began to gather in the center and called for everyone's attention. "Great people, our Great Mother memories have returned!" An elder spoke and the crowd cheered. The elder from before motioned me to her and I walked over to her and looked at everyone as she spoke. "Her true name is Oya." The crowd started chattering and mumbling curiously before the elder spoke again. "Yes, she carries the name of a goddess but that should not have been unexpected for she has earned the title of Great Monther in this village through her hard work, kind and strong will. When she awoken, I have felt a strong energy from her. With only her memory of her true name returned to her, she must go in search of her true purpose." The crowd continued to chatter but stopped when I rose my hand. "The great elder is right. I must leave to search for my true purpose and fulfill my duties but all I ask of you, is to wish me well on my travels during my search." A villager stood up and spoke. "Will you return to us? When you are done, will you return to us?"

I looked at the villager then my eyes scanned the other villagers, seeing that they all had the same question in mind, even the elders. I closed my eyes and I exhaled deeply before I spoke. "The world is large and vast but should succeed in my duties then I will come and visit. It may not be in this generation or the next but I will come and when I do, there will be a breeze in the air that will fill your lungs and rain that will water your crops and keep your rivers full. For the lives of your children and your children's children will be less of a struggle than they are now." The villagers looked at me in awe and the elders smiled before the great elder spoke to me. "Many may not know this right now but this world needs you and you couldn't have came at a better time than now. Please accept our gifts and may your travels be safe and fulfilling." A few of the villagers came to me with a bag that was decorated with copper and one of the villager's held out a machete that had a large copper loop attached the the end of the handle. I smiled and accepted the gifts graciously before I started heading out of the village. Once at the edge of the village, I turned at looked back and I saw the villagers smiling and waving at me. The hopes and dreams of these people now rested on my shoulders and it motivated to push forward on journey. I will not fail again.

I trudged through the dark barren wastes that the world had become. Great shadows of the ruined past protruding from the earth like daggers splintering the land. They had all been looted and scavenged for anything of value long ago and offered nothing but risky shelter from bandits and the like. As I walked I began to wonder where I was headed and what I was going to do, I was simply following my feet for they seemed to know something the rest of me didn't.

My memories were still a mess for the most part, only the most vital of ones fell into place. The rest were still a constantly shifting jumble that was proving hard to organize. I would need to find my armor and weapons but typically that was a memory still lost to me, all I could do was move and hope the answers came.

I continued to walk and think about the future that I paid no heed to the immediate future and passing of time. Night had been and gone and the sun was already beginning to rise in the distance. It seemed my memories were not the only thing to awaken, my body and mind felt near no fatigue from walking all night, in fact I had never felt better or perhaps I began to feel like my old self, my true self.

I finished my meal and rested for a few more hours before long night fell over and I was up again, this time walking, the woman who had given me food wandered over from the other room and smiled warily, "Hello deary... good to see you up and walking. Are you feeling better?" she asked, I nodded my head slowly. "Yes I am feeling much better thank you..." She said, "Your restless huh?" The woman asked me gently. I looked away meekly, "Yes I am..." I said quietly, "You need to move on?" The woman asked, I blinked and looked at her, "I'm not really sure why... but yes that is what I feel." I said. "It is your destiny to move on child. Don't be sad or distressed, you don't owe us anything." she mused. I looked at her, she was such a kind understand woman... "Thank you..." I spoke sparsely, "I will... pay you back one day." I assured her with a small smile. "The woods are dangerous, please take one of our weapons, I will give you a pack of food for the journey." She smiled. Soon I was set within the hours of dawn I had a bow strapped to my back with a quiver and a pack at my side filled with food. "Thank you so much..." I said. "You keep saying that... truly you don't need to thank me." She said softly she kissed my head, "Safe journey, may the forest and light guide you." She said. I smiled meekly and nodded my head, "I will be safe. I will return one day... ah... um." I started but looked down, "I will tell him you said goodbye." The woman smiled softly, I blinked did she have the power to read minds as well. I nodded and bid my farewells before travelling in the forest... I had to press on. I just wished I knew why.

The sun rose from the horizon and I panted lightly as I walked on. The ground was cracked and and parched, the air was dry and not a sign of life anywhere. A cloth covered my face, leaving only my eyes visible as I walked but I soon stopped as questions began to fill my mind. Where am I going? What is the first thing I'm suppose to do? When will I get all of my memories back? They just seem to be a blur just floating around and...am...am I the only one? I looked around and my eyes sadness slightly. "I truly hope not." I whispered before I continued walking.

I do not know how long I've been walking but I saw what looked like some buildings. As I walked closer, I saw that it wasn't in complete ruins and there were people. I let out a sigh of relief as I walked into the small town and found the closest well. Before I could grab the bucket, I heard a yell. "Hey you stranger! Get away from there!" I quickly stepped away as a group of men stormed over to me. One man quickly grab the cloth and tore it from my face before he held it up threateningly. "I don't give a damn if your a man or woman, but your an intruder and there is no way your taking our water!" The man shoved me down and tossed the cloth at me. "This is your warning! Get out of here and stay away from our water! We barely have enough for the people here, what makes you think we got enough for you?!" My eyes widen in surprise. Where the people of this town so mean to visitors? In the village that I stayed in, our village welcomed everyone and tried to help them but this village...they were not so welcoming.

I had lost track of time and progress a long time ago, I simply continued to trust in my feet, conserving what food and water I had left. Again luckily it seemed that despite the length of time without rest my body did not seem to need it, likewise with thirst and hunger. I had thought the merciless heat that was almost constant was attributed little threat.

I did not know if it was days or just hours until my feet stopped but I blinked and refocused on the area around me. At first it seemed like just more desert but just a few paces before me I noticed what must have been the very top of a building just poking out of the sand. I knelt down and brushed some of the sand away from the sand coloured stone and ran my fingers over its surface, there were a multitude of Nordic runes carved into. I could not help but smile at its familiarity, this was a temple of Asgard and where I would most definitely find some answers. I quickly got to work digging into the sand, putting all my rediscovered strength into pulling huge amounts out of the way in quick time. Even at the good pace I was going it would take several long hours if not more just to reach some kind of entrance to the rest of the temple.

Once again, I was walking. My canteen was almost empty and I could feel my mouth getting drier but for some reason, I felt like I was getting closer to something. I looked up at the sun and I noticed that my feet had been guiding me north. What was north of here? Where did I need to go? Where did I need to be? Constant swirls of questions filled my mind and when I looked ahead, I saw something interesting. Arrows pointing towards the sky. I squinted my eyes. Large, crumbling ruined arrows. I walked until evening and my eyes widen as I came closer to what I saw. Great pyramid structures or at least, what was left of the once great structures. I looked up at the darkening sky then over to the side as I found what was once a city that was now in ruins. It would have to do for shelter and a place to rest for the night. I found a secluded spot and I sat down to rest my feet. When night came, the sky was littered with stars but this night was different. Some stars were brighter than others. I stood up and I walked away from the ruined city, looking up at the stars as I did. I looked back at the pyramids and my eyes widen as I saw three bright stars seemingly hovering over what was left of the points of the pyraminds. I titled my head curiously then a soft breeze blew into my ears but a whisper followed. This way.. My head turned sharply and the wind suddenly stopped. "Who said that?" I whispered to the wind before I spoke louder. "Who's there?" I heard no responds. No sounds. I exhaled deeply, not realizing that I had been holding my breath before I tightened my grip on my bag and headed in the direction of where the wind once blew. I did not know way but something told me to follow the wind. Where was the wind taking me?

I walked down the winding path I felt like I was going in endless circles that didn't seem to stop... I wondered if I was even going in the right direction and to be honest what direction was right anyways. I mumbled to myself about how foolish I was to even be on a journey in the first place, it was stupid. I didn't know the reason why either I felt so lost. But that I had to do something! I groaned as my head ached again, 'this way...' a voice whispered into my ear I tried to swat it away but all my hand hit was air. I looked around and blinked a bit noticing the path seemed to have ended it at a few trees. I groaned and looked around to the right was another path, where I could hear a whisper, "Surely you jest..." I felt the need to ask as I walked down the path warily. This could be a trap and yet I was risking my life to venture farther into the forest. Wait I was just travelling for no reason what so ever and I'm hearing voices, what part of that screamed deadly? All of it actually, but I tried to ignore that feeling as I moved closer, to whatever I was heading towards.

I was lost in my task of digging away at the sand to reach any kind of entrance to the temple, it took several hours but I was rewarded with what felt like a small landslide as the sand I was sat on began to slide and shift and before I could react I was sinking into the shifting sands and was quickly lost beneath it. The suffocating darkness lasted only a few seconds before I was spat out into the temple, and began retching up the sand that had leeched into my mouth. Luckily I had managed to keep a hand on my pack and quickly searched it for my flask, taking a quick swig and cleaning out the rest of the sand.

After I had managed to catch my breath I scanned the chamber unable to see much as the only light came from the small hole high above where I had entered from. I pulled a torch out of one of the nearby sconces and lit it to further explore the temple. Looking behind me I was shocked and confused by the way the sand had settled. It looked as if an invisible wall was blocking the majority of the sand from entering the temple, luckily that made the rest of the temple easy enough to navigate. The air was stale and acrid as I moved from the main entrance and deeper into the temple, the statues and carvings were well worn and faded making them impossible to decipher. I spent the next few hours moving from room to room, exploring and trying to discover why I had been compelled to come here.

I had travelled across a large desert and I soon found a river. I could see where the riverbed once was but from the location of the riverbed, I could see that the river was no longer a river but a very shallow stream. I picked up my pace and when I made it to the stream, I fell on my knees and I drank thirstily. Pressing my lips to the surface of the water and drinking deeply. Once my thirst was quenched, I exhaled deeply and I smiled lightly. I could feel the life returning to my body. I studied the direction of the stream's flow and I stood up. Perhaps if I follow where the current of the river is coming from I will find a town and there I can rest my head and my feet. I walked along the riverbank, opposite of the current and my eyes searched the dry, parched land curiously. If there are others like me, I wonder where they are... A gentle breeze from nowhere blew into my ears and whispered. "Tyr...Demeter..." I stopped in my tracks and looked around. "Tyr? Demeter? Are they someone I am suppose to meet? Where can I find them? Who are they?!" I yelled out but there were no reply. Not even a gentle breeze. I looked down and I walked onward but my pace slowed as memories of chuckles and laughter entered into my head. I..I think I knew the so call Tyr and Demeter...once...

I winced again, my head was pounding and ignoring the odd whispers that seemed to come from no where annoyed me to no end. I placed my hand on a tree to relax and felt a vibration under my fingertips... how strange. It was almost like the whispers were coming from them? As I listened to them I eventually found a sign in the middle of the forest... I blinked a bit and dusted it off, "Keshek Kel..." I said, this must be the forest, the one path lead towards a castle and the other path lead to Cynosure... I closed my eyes and listened the whispers were coming from the second path towards Cynosure, so that was where I would go it seemed like. I don't know what was waiting for me there, but I knew I needed to though I was still unsure of why. Once I got to the forest entrance I suddenly felt bare and exposed, clinging to my bow anything could happen from now, I had to be careful from now on. I don't know how I ended up hurt in the first place but I assured myself, it won't happen again as I started the trek through the plains. The wind blew past me swiftly... should I follow?

Several more hours were spent exploring each room thoroughly until I came to a set of doors as large as the temples entrance. They were covered in a great mosaic that like the rest of the temple had not weathered the years too well, but from what was still readable it told tales of mine and my peoples history. The Asgardians proud and storied past, my memories were flowing smoother now, recalling the names and faces of my brothers and sisters with ease. "Thor.... Siff.....Heimdall.... The corner of my mouth tugged in a smile at the memories. "I wish you well brothers and sisters." With a great shove I began pushing open the doors, having to use a great deal of strength and effort to shift the decades of disuse away.

The doors finally creaked open wide enough to allow entry and raising my torch high revealed the room to be smaller than expected, given the size of the doors. The walls were mostly barren, as was the high domed ceiling. The only thing in the room was an alter at its center and even that was not overly grand as you would expect, plain stone with a few familiar runes carved into it. Atop the alter sad unfamiliar shapes that were covered in a thick layer of dust, sand and the general debris of time. As I approached and began brushing off the cobwebs and sand another large smile was on my lips and a warmth flowed through me. The kind of feeling you get when seeing an dear friend after a long absence. I took the hilt of my sword and pulled it from the alters stone, seeing that the blade had not dulled in the slightest in all these years, the same with my armor. Though covered in dust and cobwebs it was still in perfect condition, the leather still taught and thick, the metal still strong without any rust.

I spent the next few hours completely cleaning off my sword and armor, a smile on my lips the whole time. That was until a breeze somehow blew through the room, making me jump to my feet and ready my sword only to find no one there. My eyes narrowed, searching the darkness of the room until the wind whispered to me Demeter.... Oya.....

I spotted it the distance, Cynosure. A city and it looks to be one of the more busy and more diverse city. After a while, I finally arrived at its gates. My eyes widen in surprise at how large the gate were before I walked in. I looked around and saw people walking, running, yelling, shouting. It was indeed a busy city. I walked around, my eyes scanning my surroundings and seeing people of all shapes and sizes. My eyes looked towards the river and I noticed that it was especially busy near the river. I continued walking and started to noticed people standing by their carts with only small amounts of food and trying to sell them. It seems that hardship has traveled well across the lands. I continued my walk through the city then I stopped at a run down tavern. I looked around and noticed that this tavern looked less likely to crumble than the others. I walked inside and I sat down at a table with a soft sigh. Finally, I could rest my feet.

I rested on the main road for a bit leaning back against a tree, I was tired having travelled since early morning, I was hungry and pulled out the packed food the kind lady had made for me. I sighed, it might be nice to just be able to have constant shelter and food. With a bed and blankets.... I sighed softly, the thought was intriguing. It made my heart yearn for the desire of such a life, and yet I couldn't, I could not say why, nor did I know why truly. But the wind and road called to me, I had to keep moving forwards. I gobbled the rest of my meal and got up carefully looking around, I didn't have time to rest for to long as I headed out down the road to Cynosure. It took me almost till the moon was high in the air before I finally reached the town. It was quiet now, but I could tell it was a busy city. I looked for a place to rest as I walked into the Tavern... perhaps they had a room I could rest in.

After some thought I realized or more remember the names I heard in the wind, Oya and Demeter. I have no memory of meeting either but I knew who they were, we all did back then. Each one of us had our own legend and had earned recognition among our peers. I spent a bit more time in the temple, wrapping my large sword in some ragged cloth I managed to scavenge around the desolate temple. I did a late check to see what supplies I had left and figured I had enough to reach the edge of the desert, hopefully to reach the settlement Algiz, though it had been many many years since I'd been that far north and did not know if it was still there.

I climbed out the temple in the morning, sleep, drink and food restoring me completely and readying me for that last trek across the sands. Luckily I found myself closer to Algiz than I expected, by midday it appeared in the horizon and the thought of a bed not made of sand and water without any in it made me quicken my pace slightly, allowing me to reach Algiz before dusk.
