Marjory Delaqua: You’re absolutely sure this won’t kill us?
Taimi: Absolutely. I’d give it a solid fifty-three percent chance.
Marjory Delaqua: I beg your pardon? Maybe you shouldn’t—
Kasmeer Meade: It’s…beautiful.
Marjory Delaqua: And we’re still alive. That’s a plus.
Taimi: Of course we’re still alive. I was joking about the the fifty-three percent. It was more like seventy-eight.
Rox: Wonderful. Looks like we’re going to be the only ones walking around in here for some time.
Braham Eirsson: You did great, Taimi.
Taimi: I know.
Kasmeer Meade: What is this place?
Taimi: It’s a cave.
Kasmeer Meade: You know what I mean.
Taimi: Well, everything points to it being a ley line hub. And, before you ask, it’s where multiple ley lines intersect. Scarlet thought it important enough to set up a lab here.
Marjory Delaqua: The plant dragon’s corruption has found its way in.
Taimi: Yes, it’s troubling, but it makes sense given how the dragons consume magic. They’re undoubtedly attracted to ley lines like spiders are attracted to flies caught in their webs.
Marjory Delaqua: That doesn’t bode well for waypoints.
