Astral Plane - TorNav'Roc
Unfortunately, it seems as if it might be doing just that...for the most part, at least. Once all are in place, the gems sink into the wall, but for a single at the top of the arch. Its form fixes into a that of a small, round-cut emerald, emitting an ever-brightening glow that quickly grows strong enough to blind even Flea. Within an instant, though, the light fades, and Flea finds herself standing besides the Well at the surface, in what feels like reality.
She isn't alone, though. A new githyanki, looking incredibly aged yet somehow familiar, stands there as well, blinking and glancing around the area. A slow grin spreads across his face, as he looks to Flea. "Thank you. Not just to you, but to your friends as well." He reaches out to Flea's temple, holding his hand there and leaving an odd feeling of warmth. There's something more too, something at the back of her mind, a presence barely felt but undeniable. Should she check, and should others look upon her, they would find the last key of the door embedded there, a green gem at her temple, occasionally pulsing with barely-noticeable light.
"I would seek your friends and allies to thank them as well. Could you show me to them?"
And for getting the vote, Flea obtains the
key of dreams, an item that provides her contact with the realm of dreams and ideas, the creativity that empowers all. This grants her the following effects while she bears it:
- +2 to Wisdom, granted by the creative thoughts of countless mortals.
- A single Intelligence-based skill of her choice, always at maximum ranks, for with creativity often comes knowledge.
- Once per adventure, Flea can focus the key's power in order to call out to the Infinite Staircase. She may transform any closed door into a passage onto the Staircase once opened, lasting only until the door is again closed.
