How It Begins
- The sun has gone. It must be brought. You have a rock.
You might be any faded and silent one, with a small stone (humble and true) in hand. You lie on the resting under the High Wall which looms to the east. The High Wall creates a shade filled with sweetness, and spread under this sweetness is an expanse of fod. A mobile releases to the west towards a tower, and a guidebook lies beside you on the resting. Until the sun is brought, the shade will prevail.
