Players are in a small village named Marrow’s End located in the southern tip of Gale Terrace. Most houses are made of strong enormous tree vines, and the village as a whole is less battered by the chaotic elements of nature. It is mid summer and time for the Matrons Run festival, which celebrates the day the moon moves closest to the plane. The characters are trained fledgling adventurers amid the town, drinking and smoking Calooto herb. As the hour of fresh night approaches, it is accustomed to stop and stare at the moon before taking trance inducing plants and releasing themselves to the wild. Tonight, however, something much different occurs. As the hour came the moon began to undergo an eclipse. An event unheard of since the history of the plane. A wonder as well since no other celestial body can possibly come between the moon and the plane. As the adventures collectively stare at the phenomenon, yet another occurs. Brightly lit Talismatic tattoos appear up and down both arms of the adventurers.
