    Brow furrowed, Bronsk picks absentmindedly at the patch on his shoulder.

    "Yes, a good thing for the true sons and daughters of Gleipne, some kind of revival. But it could be a bad thing for other people.", says Lisaa and stares again at the symbols on the door.

    "I will." She begins to run, but suddenly halts and turns around. "Oh, I almost forgot. Mia told me that she wanted you to come back earlier than yesterday. I think she found something out that she was eager to tell you about." And with those words, she leaves.

    "I don't think we're going to get much more done here. But if this door is now exposed, then perhaps there may be clues in the surrounding area. We should have a look around before we go, keeping an eye out for other doors, or maybe even some unusual tracks. It might be that others have decided to visit the area, summoned by the door?"

    The healer nods. "Yes. Maybe more clues are hidden?"
    I wonder why the child could not hear, when Baztikk and I could?
    Stepping outside the cave into sunlight, Bronsk stretches with a grunt.
    "Ah, yez. Much better out here. Hyu know, I've never liked caves much."
    Bronsk begins a search of the hillside, looking for more inscriptions or entrances.

    Unfortunately, the search is fruitless. There are no other inscriptions, doors or caverns that can be found.

    Bronsk looks out at the deepening dusk. "Sure. 'm no stranger to camping outside. I can take the last watch. Erm." He looks around thoughtfully. "I'll see if I can't chase down some firewood, maybe!" So saying, Bronsk strides off, looking to gather fallen wood for a night's fire.

    Sasha shivers a bit as she looks around. She's never camped outside, and quite frankly, wasn't too keen on the experience... still, she didn't want to miss more of a chance to study the door. "Maybe we should check with Mia first?" She suggests hopefully.

    Rushing back to the cave, Bronsk sets down the wood hurriedly.
    "Sorry, everyone! I had a vision! The Door, it is very important!" the young healer blanches. "Oh! Quick, before I forget this, it is very important." He frowns and taps the side of his head frantically "Erm. It was in Nord! How shall I translate? Uh. 'Home is where the heart iz, spirit iz in heart. Mirror hides my spirit. My possessionz iz mirror.' " Bronsk looks around at the others a trifle nervously. "Please! Try and remember it, it is important!"

    Lisaa looks up confused at Bronsk's ravings but tries to memorize it. "What ? Home and heart and spirit. The spirit is hidden by a mirror which are your possessions ? Hmm ... hmm ... hmm ..." She seems to subvocalize what Bronsk said.

    Sitting around the fire, the young Miklaagardian draws up his knees and smiles into the flames.
    "I had a vision, hyu know. Beautiful, she was...Skin like smoke and radiant like the sun. Hyu would call her an angel, I think, but to me she is Hoffentsangel, spirit of hope. She told me that thiz door is important, and we need find the keyz to open it. That clue I gave hyu, it's the last hint to find the lady's key."

    Lisaa

    Lisaa's thinks about words that Bronsk said. What if ... could it be ... impossible ... but it makes sense ... a werewolf could open the door ? All this talk about werewolves recently ... my home is where my heart is, with me, a restless spirit ... and my spirit is in my heart, could the spirit be the werewolf of me ? The mirror of my self which I hide from others and which I own, from which I can't be divided ... this sounds right, but what to do now ? Can I trust this people ? From what we have talked so far, they seem to be wise and tolerant and don't condemn werewolves ... a trading company accepted a werewolf to work for them. We also welcomed the hobgoblin quite quickly when he appeared. Should I reveal my true self to them ? This door might be very important ...

    Lisaa coughs slightly and stands up, looking insecure at the others. "Uh, I might have an idea. Well, somehow. Could it be that a werecreature could open the door ? They are usually outcasts and wanderers, their home is where their heart is. Their were-spirit is always with them and they hide this mirror of their self from other people. They own this were-side of them, it can't be taken from them.

    You might wonder how I can think such thoughts, but,"
    she takes a deep breath, "to tell you the truth, and don't fear, I am a werewolf."

    Her too?! Then maybe...
    Standing slowly, Bronsk Seifsson turns towards Lisaa.
    "To say that takes great courage, but I would have hyu know you are not alone." With a grunt, Bronsk turns to the full moon, hands tucked behind his back.
    "I too am werewolf."

    With the intimate revelations, Sasha seems rather startled. 'Just like me...! I didn't know there were others so close...' The human girl sighs and tucks a strand of hair behind her ear, smiling at the older elf. "I hate to steal your thunder, but I'm afraid I'm a werewolf..." She looks to Bronsk's sleeping form and to Baztikk. "One hell of a coincidence, right?"

    Lisaa looks completly flummoxed and sits down. "Coincidence ... coincidence ? This can't be a coincidence. All this talk about werewolves and the strange happenings recently. I believe Mia was right. There is some connection in some or all of this. And now this door ... and Bronsk's vision. Some otherworldy being brought us together and led us to this place." She gets her own bedroll from her backpack and sits down on for her watch.

    Again time passes. The night goes by uneventfully, and the sun rises in the horizon as the village awakens to life. Joining the sun however, is Mia. As the rest of the group awakens from sleep, Lisaa notices the priestess climbing up towards the cave, waving her hand and smiling when she notices that Lisaa sees her. She also carries with her a rather large book.

    Mia arrives, flushed but smiling. "Ah. Great to see that you're all in good shape. I became worried when you didn't return. When Astrid returned and told me about your discoveries, I rember reading about them, and here is the book." She proudly displays the book for all to see. "The war of the beasts... hopefully this can shed some light."

    "The Ninjizuishou, or the warriors of light, was a group of seven strange heroes. Led by the Mystic known as Michelle Ami, they created seven strange relics. The reason for this is currently unknown, as most history regarding them has been destroyed due to mysterious circumstances. What little is left describes only their leader..." "Here comes some description of her as a person. She is described as a very intelligent and strict person. She apparently also studied something called physics and chemistry, and was very skilled with math. Now this is something I found interesting. "Despite being described as a woman in the service of Good, she and her group allied themselves with the werecreatures during the war of the beasts. The reasons, and outcome, of this is not known. Rumour has it that the relics they created was used to seal away the greatest weapon of the werecreatures..."

    Mia stops reading. "That is the only relevant information I could find I'm afraid. I am not sure how much we should trust this though. The book itself is pretty badly made, and seems to be based of rumours and prejudice rather than facts..." She glances around swiftly. "I don't know about you, but I am interested in finding out what all of this really is all about." Suddenly she realise what she has been doing and blushes. "Uhm... what have you found out?"

    Bronsk
    The shaggy-haired young man casts a sidelong glance to his new companions (including a strangely comatose hobgoblin) and then speaks
    "I think...we are interested too. I was visited by a spirit last night;" his features soften as he seems to recall the experience. "A powerful spirit of good and hope. She told me..." a slight hesitation "That to open this door iz first test that leads to a great truth." The young Miklagaardian spreads his calloused hands. "She told me much that you now know; Nijizuishou, Ami. She also told me that Ami was shapeshifter; a werewolf."
    Bronsk pauses to evaluate Mia's reaction.
