[ Day 17 ] Heroes' Wishes, Pt. 2
Out from the top of the bewildering tower of Berle Tanden leaped the fierce warrior who braved the climb, as well as her new companion, a giant squirrel. Together they made their way down to the bottom, leaving the generous Djinni with the second hero of the pair: a short, elderly cleric who is as wise as he is devoted to the Divines of Radiance and Joy.
Slowly, he stepped forward with a wish he knew he would want granted from the bottom of his heart. He wished to bring light and happiness to everyone. And so the Djinni, with no hesitation, snapped his fingers, and around his neck appeared a golden talisman with the shape of the sun.
As the cleric looked at his own reflection within its aureate sheen, the Djinni spoke. "Upon wearing this ornament, it will radiate a soft glow of warmth, and all those who have been touched by this light will have their hearts alleviated from their woes. However, share your blessings very carefully, young one, for this light is but a fleeting moment of bliss like no other. Should you find yourself sought out by those who would stain their souls for the light of this talisman, my gift will quickly prove itself to be your end."
The elderly cleric simply nods. The Djinni, realizing that the kind cleric had no way to climb to the bottom, snapped his fingers once more, and in a moment, the cleric found himself in the town of Berle aside his friend, the savage warrior, donning her new mask. And the two become known as brave souls that will tell the tale of the Djinni of Berle-Tanden… for as long as they live, that is.
