There's nothing at first, no sound, no feeling. Darkness. But gradually there are pinpricks of feeling, starting at the bottom of your feet and moving a slow course up to the top. You can't move, but when the tingling sensation reaches up to your neck, your face, a blurred image begins to come into focus. Darkness is replaced by a…cavern? The shapes are coming together into what looks like stone.
You realize you can turn your neck. You look down to see your body partially encased in what appears to be ice. You are standing at the bottom of a set of stone stairs. Looking closer, you can see that the ice is melting, becoming a slowly growing puddle on the ground. Soon, your arms will be free. The picture focuses and you can see that it is not a cavern that you stand in, but some sort of temple. Rows of stone columns flank you on either side, disappearing into the darkness of this towering room. The only source of illumination, a metal bier upon which a sickly green flame wavers. You have no idea the true size of the room, all of the edges are hidden in the darkness. But at the top of the stairs sits a grand mural carved into the stone, the waves of the ocean, and a single tentacle rising from the abyss.
