Chronicles of Andy

6/7/2014 - Adventure Log

- Darren had decided that he needed to step away for a moment, so stepped into the Shadow pocket. He goes to play his flute, and this time the door is locked, so he tries to put more effort into it. After some time he succeeds in exiting to a place similar to where he came in. It is grey and feels like it’s moving. He starts playing his flute again and can see the effects of his work in the air. He tries to leave — anywhere that’s not here. He pictures a Downtown, starts to play, and the fog thickens buut grows transparent, like it’s making a window. The fog starts to shape into the things he’s imagining. He tries to envision life and people fill the streets. He decides to press against the window. He envisions that the screen disappears, and it does. He tries to envision Meridian and one of the passersby adopts Meridian’s appearance. He envisions Castle Amber and begins to play. The window reappears and in the far distance is Castle Amber. He pushes through the window and steps into Castle Amber outside the gates. He stops playing, puts his flute away and walks in. He is challenged by the guards. An officer tells him Dmitri gave him special permission. Dmitri fills him in and sends him through to Amy.
