If only I had viewed the world from the perspective of mortals sooner! During her traversal of the secret pass beneath the mountains, Haluned felt a strange emanation. It brought to me memories of my time with Zaros back on Freneskae. I felt its draw through her. At the point of this emanation we discovered a rift through which poured a near-limitless supply of deathly energy. My own energy derives from the light end of the spectrum, but this energy type sits at the opposite end of the scale, much like my old companion did. Could such energy counteract my own, and break my link with the elves? If I can find a way to safely tap this energy, then the elves might be free of me. They would regain their diminished mortality, but such is how it should be.
