Arcane Focus Continued

- Wellspring Grove, 23rd of Second Seed, 3E, 433 -

After taking a small, quaint ferry into Lake Rumare, Soath landed on a small island, traversed through a short cavern and found himself among the beauty and magical essence of Wellspring Grove with two other mages from the University.

Zarasha, a spry young female Khajiit and Eletta, an aging Redguard woman greeted Soath a the entrance of the cave and they made pleasantries for several hours as he toured the sacred island. There were plenty of perfect specimens to choose from for his Arcane Focus, but Soath finally decided on an amethyst crystal that could fit into the palm of his hand. He would have it fitted with some sort of leather strap so that it could always be at hand, literally. He tucked the crystal into his vest pocket beneath his robes.

Upon his departure from Wellspring Island, Soath met a tall dark elf woman in robes entering the cave with a smile on her face.

"Well met." he greeted her in earnest. She looked him over.

"A new member to the University?"

"Yes, muth'sera." Soath responded.

"And a Dunmer with manners to boot? Yes, you will do just fine." The woman said as she patted him on the shoulder.

"Thank you."

"No, dear boy. Thank you." she said in a sinister tone and spoke a familiar incantation.

The world tilted back and cracked Soath's head. He awoke in shackles with a splitting headache, his sword was gone and the Imperial Guards were dragging him by his knees.
