Once again for an instant you hear the sound of creaking metal before the roar of rushing water fills your ears. The current jerks sideways and you are sucked towards the nearest wall. Rather than smacking into unforgiving metal though you pass with the water through empty space. Or at least mostly empty. As you hurtle through the short passage, you smack into something relatively solid, perhaps made of shell, but not anchored to anything. After bouncing off that you land on waterlogged sand.
As you quickly gain your bearings and draw yourself out of the direct blast of inky water you find yourself in the open air on what appears to be a vast desert, the only thing interrupting the endless sea of sand is the large pillar of iron rising up out of the ground that you have just exited. A well of water explodes out of the side of the monolith, drenching the ground below you with inky black water. The scalding hot water is rapidly releasing a cloud steam into the light breeze.
Looking at the sky you find another surprise. At least a third of the sky is filled with this world's moon. It is an enormous multicolored and striped thing, and you cannot see all of it below the desert horizon. The sun also is much larger, and you can feel it's intense heat, combined with the thin air beginning to dry you off, though not in a particularly cleansing fashion as the black stain of the ink still remains.
As you fade into the mists with your exceptional hiding skills you notice you are not alone. Two rust monsters
are pulling themselves up and out of the stream of water as well. Hovering slightly, they both seem capable of magical flight. Above you, you see a planetar
overseeing the two rust monsters. Hovering perhaps ten feet above you, you see a spellscale, normally human sized though this one is no bigger than you, swaddled in exotic silks. It too seems to be overseeing the two creatures.
