Time and all things come together in this place, as though they were one
and the same. This is a place of meditation, peace, and serenity. There
are no barriers -- even the boundaries between the planes of existence are
as nothing here.

LOOK NORTH:
All the aspects of you -- the choices you have made, the people you have
encountered, the places you have seen, the dreams you have dreamt, the
beliefs you hold true -- lie behind you, forming the whole that you are
and have been.

LOOK EAST:
The crashing of waves can be heard in the distance, timeless and full of
power. In this moment, you can see your self.

LOOK SOUTH:
Within your heart lies a quiet place; a place where you can go to
contemplate and be content with yourself. Your reality is your choice,
and you can choose to see the beauty in the world, to dream the dream
of heaven -- to dream reality. There is a narrow opening to the south..

LOOK WEST:
The infinite possibilities in life stretch before you, awaiting your
embrace. The pathways lie open to you, some clearer than others.

LOOK UP:
A faint moon shines with a cool white light among the distant stars above. At
the same time, the warm light of the sun flows from the edges of the
shimmering horizon, showing the outlines of low-slung clouds. All things are
possible. All things have been. All things will be.

LOOK DOWN:
Delicate white flowers blossom among the rangy grasses, opening
to receive the gifts of light from the sun and moon and closing
again when they have drunk their fill. The water of a shallow reflecting
pool grows still as the ripples caused by the faint breeze at your
entrance subside.

LOOK rules
As you gaze into the pool, a stone tablet appears before your eyes. On it
are inscribed two sets of rules for the Dreamwalkers. You can look daily
and look entrance to take a closer look at the entrance requirements
and the daily rules.

LOOK entrance requirements
Followers must be willing to make a commitment. Once you are accepted into the
order, there will no release for any reason. Followers must be at least level
10 in any class, and/or be able to demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the
realm. Those desiring entrance into the order should arrange to be interviewed
by me, Tamar. You must be willing to live by the daily rules (look daily).

LOOK daily
-Honesty in all things is required.
-Treat *everyone* you encounter with courtesy and respect, regardless of
your personal opinion of them.
-Accept others for what they are, and for what they are not.
-Give others the benefit of the doubt.
-Be an example of good, and look for the good in others.
-Be prepared for the worst, and expect the best.
-Learn as much as you can about the realm and the people in it.
-Finally, you are responsible for the consequences of your actions.
Consider the larger impact.
-There are some restrictions on PKing and stealing:
This is a non-aggressive following. Please note that "a non-aggressive
following" is not the same thing as "a passive following". Justified
PKing, and PKing in self-defense are allowed but not encouraged. Stealing
should be restricted to those you are justified on as well. Please speak
to me personally for more details on how to handle PKing, and my
definition of justified PKing.

A myriad of paths lie open before you.

A vision of a frozen lake suddenly appears, looking suspiciously like a hockey
rink.

As you gaze into the reflecting pool, a vision of a black unicorn comes slowly
into focus. Two figures stand nearby, engaged in pleasant conversation.

to view them.

You fall briefly into a contemplative, dreamlike state. Your dreams are
your own, and only you can know their true meaning.

LOOK wave waves
You can hear the crashing of the waves in the distance, but cannot see
them.

LOOK heartbringer
As you gaze into the pool, a face slowly comes into focus. It is the
image of Ghazkull, the Heartbringer of the Dreamwalkers. Etched with his
name are the qualities of courage, hope, and perseverance.

LOOK spirit
What appeared at first to be a reflection of light in the pool is actually
the image of Azeworai, the spirit of the Dreamwalkers made flesh.
Strength, kindness, and fearlessness come to mind as you gaze at the image
of the person chosen as the Dreamwalker's first Ordained. A shining aura
surrounds him.

LOOK face faces
You see those that have had an impact upon your life.

LOOK hawkeye
A sharp eye, and a sharp mind are but a few of the qualities of the person
whose image appears to you now in the pool. You see him here attempting
to convince Tamar to trade Medallions "just for a moment".

LOOK beliefs
The beliefs you hold true help to form the whole that you are, and that
you have been.
