Closed Death and the Desolate Priest

Madeira and Jomi confront a Desolate One, and the stakes could not be higher.

The Diamond of Kalea is located on Kalea's extreme west coast and called as such because its completely made of a crystalline substance called Skyglass. Home of the Alvina of the Stars, cultural mecca of knowledge seekers, and rife with Ethaefal, this remote city shimmers with its own unique light.

I'm sorry this took me so long; it was a bit of an intimidating thread, not going to lie! That said, it was an excellent read. I'm so used to seeing Madeira being composed and sly and manipulative; seeing her experience such terror was kind of fun, and I loved the struggle she went through of fearing death and then accepting it.

Her wounds would all be mostly if not fully healed by now, though the scars will be fairly severe and cause her discomfort. Congrats on your gnosis mark! :D I'll add it to your SS thread as soon as this grade is posted.

Lastly; the nature of this thread didn't lend itself to a huge amount of skills in my opinion, but as always if you have an issue don't hesitate to get in touch with me about it!

✦Exhaustion from using too much soulmist

As I said already, this was a great read. Jomi has always been a bit of a little shit and causes Madeira no end of grief; seeing how much he cares for her despite it and how far he's willing to go to help and protect her (even if it's still with his own agenda in mind) was genuinely touching, especially when he was so terrified.

Same with Madeira, any consequences of using up your soulmist like that should be gone by now. :)

As always, please don't forget to edit or delete your grading request in the queue! If you have any questions or concerns regarding your grades, don't hesitate to shoot me a PM; I'll do what I can to fix whatever the issue may be!
