What a wonderful spring morning it was. The shopkeepers were out in the streets, merrily and loudly bellowing out what their wares were, children and the elderly taking pleasant walks through the park, and in general the pleasant weather was enjoyed by all.
The only one not truly enjoying the weather was overjoyed by something else. Sorune, the (Pink) druid and (Temporarily Nekojin) forest-dweller, was letting out loud cries of joy as the woman by him woke up, and a telepathic message was sent to several people. End Reshiki, Kyle, Kelne, Enlil, and Sorune were all contacted mentally at the same time, with the same message.
~The time has come.~ The voice said, sounding caring, comforting and loving, an embodiment of all that is good with the world. ~We thank you for taking care of our Sage. Now the time has come to join Sorune in his dwelling, if you so choose, to assist him in saving our own world. We hold no debt against you...but if you do come, you'll all be richly awarded. We are in great need of help, and it is truly worth our entire world if you will assist.~
The voice left them all, but even so they felt something light drop into their hands. It was an emblem, one made of a lightweight medal, wrought into the shape of a giant tree. Sorune's closer friends would recognize it as the emblem he had in his own cloak, recognizing him as a Sage.
Of course, this transportation would draw...attention as well. And the source seemed to be coming from the forest, at Sorune's dwelling.
