Plane shift can drop you up to five hundred miles from your intended destination.

This time they land in some woods, at sunset, near a remarkably flat and smooth path that looks like a lava flow or something.

" - probably somewhere in Taldor? Or Absalom." He takes off into the air. "There's a town that way, maybe a mile."

He steps onto the black stone path. "They pave this well a mile out? I might've met the first Taldoran duke I actually like."

Permalink

"I think this is natural."

Permalink

"Even if it is, they'd have to maintain it."

After a little bit of waiting a big metal cart on wheels can be seen coming down the road, heading right for them.

They get well out of the way of the big metal cart on wheels.

 

" - how is it safe for it to go that fast?"

Permalink

"That's faster than the carpet! 

- they don't have those in Taldor. Or Absalom."

Permalink

"I think if they had those anywhere nearby we'd have heard of them."

Permalink

"Could be a new experimental sort of thing."

Permalink

" - maybe."

 

They keep walking.

A big metal cart on wheels comes down the road maybe once a minute.

If they follow the road they will eventually come out of the forest and into an area that's mostly houses with fenced-in yards. There are smaller paved paths on either side of the big black path.

What animals would you want lots of this size for? Maybe chickens? He doesn't see any chickens or in fact any animals on the lots at all but it's dusk, they're probably in their coops.

 

Is there a temple?

Permalink

There's a big fancyish building with some stained glass windows and a steeple with a cross shape coming out of it, if they walk a ways.

That seems about right. They head in. Mahdi casts Tongues.

There's an entrance hall and then a large decorated room full of pews. Apart from an old man sweeping the floor, the place is deserted.

Permalink

He heads over to the old man sweeping the floor. 

"Excuse me," he says. "We landed here accidentally. What city is this, and to which gods is this temple dedicated?"

Permalink

The old man squints at them suspiciously. 

"This's a Methodist Church."

Permalink

"And the city?"

Permalink

"You're in Sunnydale. Where're you from?"

Permalink

"Sothis, in Osirion."

Permalink

"Where's Osirion?"

Permalink

" - it's on the Inner Sea, in the north of Garund."

Permalink

"Never heard of it."

Permalink

"South of Avistan? West of Casmaron?  - this may be a different planet, or a different plane."
