[Wind Reach] The Inner Warrens

Description:
The Inner Warrens refer to honey comb labyrinth of corridors and hallways that links every room and work spaces. The main corridors are called the Pathways, they are common footpaths to areas like the Aeries, Glass Reverie and the Courtyard of the Sky. The Upper pathways contain living quarters for the powerful and upper castes, while the ones further down contain large rooms with many stone slabs for the Drudges. To reach the upper pathways, people travel up spiral staircases and hard sloped corridors. In fact, many people take entire day to go from the gate to the Eagle Aeries.

The pathways have magecrafted lights set into them, while pictures and arrows point to where the hallway goes. As one travels further from the common paths, they find less mage crafted lamps and dusty rooms. Some Dek’s have been known to setup small residences, instead of living in the large common rooms. They often allow a place to secure valuables and privacy. However, these corridors don’t receive regular repair or foot traffic, sadly they increase in death from a knifing or unwanted sexual attentions. If one is so inclined to adventure beyond these areas, they will discover the deep warrens, a place where even the Drudges fear to go.

In Wind Reach the sweet whispers take on an usually twist. Reimancers who overgive feel a deep rhythm pulling them to travel deeper down into the mountain. Those that succumb, began to feel the stone call out to be shaped in different ways, the Reimancer begans to use his Djed to shape the Deep Warrens. Strangely, the whispers make sure that Reimancer finds a little food in mushrooms and water in pools so that it takes many days before they succumb to death. Due to this, people of Wind Reach insult each other by telling them to, “Enjoy a long walk.” Meaning that they wish the person to go insane and die in the deep warrens.

When a Reimancer goes for a long walk, their family might organize a few search parties to recover the lost mage. However, only one person has been found as of this day. Lorlyn, of the Twins of the Courtyard, was found in a chamber by her brother Herth. The Twisted Chamber contained flowing stone spikes and arches of stone. In the middle of the Twisted Chamber a grotesque statue of a twisted creature craved from solid amethyst. It was as if the girl had moved stone like wet clay, and to this day people believe that the mountain still talks to her. The few mapping crews that try to find large caverns to perhaps grow more food, speak of similar rooms. There are rumors about a chamber that opens up to a magma pocket containing gemstones that are as large as robin eggs. However, the map caught fire as the crew entered and the chamber remains lost to this day.

Reimancers roam all corridors, repairing tunnels or reinforcing ceilings. Occasionally, during the winter, Reimancers will organize a mapping party to explore the uncharted passages. The more successful parties have found old workshops and notes written from previous Avora’s. The less successful ones are still waiting to be heard from again.
