Tel's Lesser God Office: April 23, 1998

Tel's office is truly a plane unto itself. A large staircase ascends to his
desk, upon which is a broken down computer and a glass of some unknown
beverage (sometimes its better not to ask). Aside from the obvious
resident however, there are some others you didn’t notice at first.
Floating, flying, or frolicking by you are hundreds, no.. Thousands, of
mist-like images drifting through Tel's Realm. These are the dreams and
hopes of all mortals, for to dream and hope is to be passionate about
something, and in this place, such things can be seen and touched. To the
north is the Portal to Tel's Temple. From all around comes music echoing
from far into the endless depths of Tel's Realm, from somewhere, also deep
in his realm you here lyrics begin...

"... When you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of
gold, you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold.... "

Look NORTH: A shimmering red portal leads you back to Tel's temple.

he who is master here would get lost charting its depths.
