|As it is but a matter of time before the barrier fails, the monks have chosen to risk weakening them farther. They are prepared to send someone through to the place it is believed our village and its surroundings will most likely reappear. I have been volunteered for this task. Though I suspect it is less due to recognition of my abilities, than due to my tendancy to question the beliefs or even sanity of some of the monks from our past. I have been declared expendable.
