Taking a deep breath, despite knowing that she was underwater, Ebony threw her hands out, thinking that the stone was within her reach. Her hands came upon the source of the glow, and as she ran her hands over it, she opened her eyes just enough to take a glimpse of the shining stone that rested beneath her hands.

Is this it? she almost said to herself.

The stone was beautiful like a gem. It was blue and green and the colors shifted reflecting the oceans waves. It was cool to the touch and the light of it never died away even when Ebony had claimed it. It almost seemed to ‘sigh’ in satisfaction as the girl touched it, as it it were at ease now or relieved.

Perhaps then Ebony would notice the stone bodies littered around the pedestal or how the pedestal itself was made from a human’s hand; all peoplea that had once attempted to claim the stone for themselves.

“What isss thisss!” A female voice sounded in the water and a great shadow moved behind the pedestal. There was a throne and in the throne sat a great female naga with a massive headdress made from seashells.

“Come clossser my chiiild, my SSStone bearer.” The voice was sweet and was very alluring. It would be hard to resist such a call and the Naga Queen beckoned Ebony closer with a movement of her fingers. The Queen only needed the thief to look upon her.

As Ebony admired the Water Stone, she heard the sweet, strangely appealing voice speaking from behind the pedestal. Her first instinct was to lift her head, see what produced the beautiful voice underwater. There couldn't have been anything wrong with such an alluring voice...

Before she could lift her head to see the Naga Queen, her fingers grazed once of the fingers that held the Water Stone in place. Ry'nn's warning came back to her, and she realized that the voice must have been one of those creatures, perhaps the same that was behind whatever happened to the person whose hand now held the stone...

Ebony wanted to look. It felt like all of her questions would be answered just by taking a single glance. But fear of what might happen--what Ry'nn warned her of--kept Ebony's resolve strong. She held onto the Water Stone, her legs feebly trying to push herself away as if her body wanted to obey. Thinking of her family, her home, her love back in her world, Ebony kept her eyes closed and her head lowered away from the voice, resisting with all of her will.

“You dare resssissst me?!”

The Queen Naga was growing irritated that Ebony had not fallen into her usual trap. Being bound to the throne, the Queen could not move from it, but she was the leader of many naga.

“Get heeer,” she commanded while pointing towards Ebony and the ‘ocean’ began to churn with serpentine bodies swimming at alarming speeds toward Ebony. The gills on the sides of the girl’s throat were now showing the first signs of closing. They would not last much longer than a few more minutes.

And any second now, there would be a naga horde to drag Ebony down into the depths of the room just as they had with Ry’nn.

The angered voice reassured Ebony that it was wise not to heed the Naga Queen's temptation. Feeling her strength renewing in her, Ebony gathered her might and pulled on the Water Stone, prying it from the hand that held it. Her heart started to rush as she felt her gills feeling strange - she suspected that she wouldn't have much time left to get out of the water.

She thought for a quick second. Her speciality in magic was affecting the strength of others. Perhaps she would be able to help herself swim away? That thought left her mind quickly as she realized that she might need all of the power she could muster if those creatures attacked her as they had attacked Ry'nn.

Yet if she sped herself up, perhaps she would avoid them outright...?

All Ebony knew was that she had no time to make her decision. Holding onto the Water Stone with one arm, she pushed off the pedestal with her legs, starting in the direction she had approached the Stone from--or at least she certainly hoped it was the right direction.

With the stone in her hand, Ebony would feel a small iota of strength being lent to her. The stone was a connection with Gaia and through it, Ebony could tap into a small reserve of Will. During a time of crisis, it would grant her a service if Ebony needed it. And she did. The girl only need to think of what she wished to do: grow stronger, swim faster, or anything she desired, for a limited amount of time.

Behind Ebony, naga were closing in on her. One was so close that it reached out in order to take her ankle. It was going to jerk her back into the depths but as soon as its scaly fingers brushed against Ebony’s skin, the naga was jerked back.

What happened to that particular naga was unknown as it was replaced by two more. However, flashes of light were occurring around Ebony as if something were protecting her. The naga all hissed and shrieked but never stopped attempting to stop the fleeing Ebony.

She felt the touch of the creature graze her skin, but Ebony kept pushing herself, kept exerting what little of her physical strength remained. The last thing she wanted to do was to look behind her, to know how many of them were still in pursuit, to know whether or not the one that had touched her had cut her or something, or to see their Queen and fall under whatever fate the monster had intended for her.

Still, as she pushed herself through the water, she was becoming light-headed from exertion and the lessening amount of oxygen coming through her gills--or perhaps they were inferior to her ordinary lungs, she didn't know. The arm that she used to force herself forward was growing more and more tired, as well as her legs from kicking as hard as she could. She wasn't going fast enough to outrace them... Just a little more speed...!

As she thought of that, the growing stiffness in her limbs seemed to lessen, the aches in her joints ebbed away, and Ebony felt each thrash of her limbs propelling her just a little faster. She couldn't stop now, she couldn't look back...

The surface of the water was near for Ebony and the water began to become more shallow. The girl was coming upon the floor of the room where Ry’nn and she had first entered into the water. It was only a few feet away.

The naga seemed to have abandoned Ebony as the flashes of light become more brilliant and more frequent. They were no longer chasing her but attempting to fight off an unknown source of threat. If Ebony had taken the time to look back, she’d see a figure between the flares of red light surrounded by a horde of naga. Some were floating free as if dead and some were binding their hands and tails around the figure.

Her hand continued to thrash out in front of her until it struck the hard floor marking the shallow water that they had entered into the water through. She used the last of her strength to fling herself out of the water, splashing out from below the surface to take a huge gulp of air. She placed the Water Stone on the dry floor in front of her before pulling her body out, weighed down by her soaked dress. Now she understood why Ry'nn hadn't worn her robe...

"Ry'nn!" Ebony gasped, glancing behind her for just a second. Her eyes widened at the sight of the flashes and the seemingly-slain naga floating on the surface. There was a figure beneath the water--was that Ry'nn? She wanted to hurry back under, try to help the woman, but she was exhausted, completely spent and thirsting for oxygen. She lowered her eyes to the Water Stone, holding it in both hands and shaking as she tried to gather the strength to lift herself off of the floor.

The water went dark and nothing stirred on the surface. It was just as tranquil as it had appeared when they first entered the room. All was quiet and Ebony was left alone. The stone urged the girl to grab it up again and to run. The tower was not a safe place and it was unforgiving. Ebony was the first person to ever retrieve a stone and still live since it was erected thousands of years ago by Those Who No Longer Roam.

There was no other choice but for Ebony to leave and to ride the griffon back down to the earth; to leave. Ry’nn was nowhere to be seen with no signs of life beneath the water. The woman may very well have perished in order to save Ebony’s life.

And it was all for the stone …

Ebony sat still, watching the still surface of the water. After a few seconds, she looked at the Water Stone, then back towards the water. "Why I am destined for this?" she asked herself, finally pulling herself to her feet. "A priestess of the moon in a world where the sun always shines... why would I have been called here? How can I do anything...?"

Lifting the Water Stone, she started away from the water. She wondered if Ry'nn was truly dead, if the woman had given her life for Ebony to obtain the stone. If so, Ebony doubted that her sacrifice would mean anything. She hadn't been able to even defend herself against the creatures--how could she fight on this "Mother Gaia's" behalf?

She remembered the griffon; as she exited the interior of the tower, she hoped that the beast still remained--and that it wouldn't be hostile without Ry'nn's presence.

Nobody could put their finger on exactly when it started happening, but the entropy of magic across Gaia was felt one day. It was as if there was a leak somewhere. Where was the magic going? It couldn't of simply been disappearing...

The planet by this point was mostly obscured with clouds and storms. The had rolled in starting from two places unseemingly connected; somewhere in the Weargtooth Mountains, as well as the Exalted Mountains. Before long Gaia transformed from a green globe to a gray one.

Lightning spidered across the planet to strike somewhere on Siv'en. It spidered again to strike, this time over in the Kadota Peaks. Again the lightning struck up in the Weargtooth Mountains. Purple sparks beneath the clouds sprung up for an instant over what was north Ellaria beneath the clouds.

A force grew stronger across Gaia, and as it did another force weakened. There was a quake - though barely able to be sensed, something deep beneath the ground stirred in Siv'en. The clouds there illuminated, sky breaking for a moment to reveal a valley bathed in light, before a great flash and the light dissipated, dark skies again closing in to obscure the view.

The dead star Eras shifted ever so slightly. Nobody but the greatest mappers of these stars, having had tracked them for a millennia or more, would notice anything irregular about the movement. It was slightly, oh so slightly, faster than usual. Eras's great mass moved fully into position, placing the great Soja directly between the dead star and the planet. With this stellar line formed, Eras' power could truly grow. The magical nature of the Chousin called to Eras, well within his grasp. He tested the waters, pulling power from the Chousin as he did the stones of the Iskjerne Viking settlers, of the Taiyou weapons, of the Whispering Woods and the Bez Daha Trees. He took a little sip, and liked what he tasted, and went to draw more.

Gaia called to the champions. Time was running out.

Eras finished his great move. In position, the dead star continued to drain life from the forces of spirit, magic, and power surrounding Gaia. The great alien structure was a main target for Eras. As he drew from the Taiyou ship, drew from the Viking's forged stones, drew from Gaia herself, and the sword far below, Eras grinned.

It was very faint, but a new light emerged in the sky. Not so much new as newly awakened.

The sound of glass shattering echoed throughout the Crystal Tower.

The Stone of Spirit, placed here long ago, had shattered. Something that would have been thought impossible by Those Who No Longer Roam. In the ages since they wandered Gaia much had changed. External forces came into play, and so the native forces of Gaia were weakened. In their weakened state, Eras flexed his power. A colossus officially woke up. Hoargraskr laughed; let Nightfall begin.

While the Stone of Earth remained in it's safe spot, it hummed. Far off in the Exalted Mountains, Ni'Thorne began to stir. Though the mind of the great Colossus was still trapped here, it seemed Eras himself was channeling power to puppeteer the Earthen beast. As grateful as Ni'Thorne was for being brought to life, part of Ni'Thorne resented Eras for being the cause of his entrapment.

Of similar opinion, Maelstr stirred.

The rains began to slow, but the skies began to darken. Cendor craned his neck to watch as a giant shadow above the clouds stretched from the mountains over the vale. There on the horizon, small but still noticeable, was a mountain grown taller and more irregular than the rest. It struck terror into his heart.

The Crystal Tower in the center of the lake gleamed. Cendor had heard of this place but had never seen it in person.

A great emerald dragon descended from the skies, landing not too far off from Cendor. He regarded the red dragon, who only came up to Smaragdos's knee, with an air of knowing. He wondered if the young dragon knew why he was here. It didn't seem so.

Cendor had never seen a dragon so big, although he had heard of their existence, and couldn't help but stare for a moment. Between the great emerald dragon and the change in the horizon, and especially after almost being killed by lightning on multiple occasions, Cendor didn't quite know what to make of most anything.

Which reminded him! The red dragon spun in a frantic circle, but knew he had lost the very important package he was supposed to deliver back to the village. It was an important gift for one of their elders and he didn't know much of it. All he knew was that he was screwed if he returned without it.

He looked from Smaragdos to Ni'Thorne in the distance, then back to Smaragdos, and said nothing. Something larger than life itself was happening here he realized and dumbly shook his head. Cendor realized he had no clue.

Smaragdos sat back on his haunches. He regarded the young dragon with a shrewd eye. It was only recently Smaragdos had been awoken, but it was for a great purpose.

The emerald dragon shifted his great head towards the Crystal Tower. His belly rumbled, smoke puffing a cloud over the lake. He gently waved a hand, then waved it again with more gusto, then again a third time and the smoke puff evolved. Shapes formed made of smoke- three spheres, two revolving around a larger third.

Cendor's jaw dropped as the smoke began to form images above the lake. He didn't recognize the three orbs and their formation, but there was something familiar. Cendor did his best to settle on his own haunches to watch and listen, still sending panicked looks every now and again to the skies above and the distant horizon- lest lightning struck again.

Cendor realized, as the smokey orb depicting Eras broke to form another orb, faintly swirling green and blue, which then began it's own revolution around Eras, that the stories from his childhood may hold more than just a grain of truth.

Atargatis and Sagittae continued their dance. As they did more formations appeared around Gaia. Cendor recognized their movements and knew he was looking at a map of the heavens. Was their realm really created out of jealousy?

And was it really round like that?

The smoke orb of Gaia expanded, losing all of it's color. The smokey visage of seven titans flashed across the planet. The smoke curled in and out of itself as it shifted between scenes.

Here a great pillar of fire rose from a crack in the earth, ravaging everything in it's path.
A tsunami laughed as it drowned a coastal city.
The skin of travelers boiled as they dropped in the desert from Eras's rays.
A great white serpent licked it's tongue around the form of a long dead king.
The wind ripped the edge of a forest and sent it tumbling across a plain.
Undead raised and wrought hellish circumstance on the people of the Golden Vale.
A mountain stood up and cast it's menacing gaze across all the lands below.

Cendor gasped and whipped his head to look at Ni'thorne on the horizon. Smaragdos waited for the young dragon's attention to return to the illusions before he continued.

"We're all going to die," Cendor's voice cracked as he looked Smaragdos deep in his eyes. Smaragdos waved an arm and the smoke shot out towards the Crystal Tower. It faded to a wisp, disappearing completely.
