Hrrum enters threshold in a funk. Menson has been dreamstruck, and as the maren army wrecks havoc a gloom descends on the city. I am trying to keep pace with events as they unfold, and ask him for more information about the striking. So just how, exactly, did Tzayak come by dreamstrike? The spider has an interesting theory.
"We created an artifact, a Spherical Apparatus, that had dreamstrike within it. We wanted to destroy Tzayak, but he dreamstruck Menson first. "The apparatus was created with the help of Dread Warden. He gave us the shell within the artifact. It was a device that was able to drain raw chaos to store and release great power. Selika and Maal broke it in a ritual they performed on Menson. They wanted to hurt him because at the time we had the OoSM prime in possession.
But the wave that they evoked landed on the apparatus. It drained some of its energy but the damage was not sufficent to destroy the artifact. A few weeks ago we repared the apparatus. In his final words, the prophet Kelenrath delivered a message from Tzayak: "Stupid Dreamer! Go sit on your 'spherical apparatus.'" "Tzayak must have took the item from him and shared it with the other mares. We saw Ssvatra and Ra-zr evoking strike, and a few saw Tzayak taunting dreamers with menson's soul essence and apparatus."
