12.4 THE CAVE

The Cave is more than a mystical place; it is connected with Varian     
Himself. It is the place where those living mortals who have traveled to
the Underworld and back find themselves when they are returned to their 
mortal bodies. None may linger inside the Cave, for to do so is to      
profane the divine power that has granted a second chance.              

While none may enter the Cave without their spirit being moved there by 
Varian, many find themselves, at one time or another, Outside the Cave. 
This place, located in the Western Ithmia forest, is a common meeting   
place and it would be to your advantage to get to know your way around  
its environs as soon as possible.
