The Knot in the Verse
The Guests of the Threshold
(Non-Deva) In the darkness of sleep, descending from a magnificent sunset, heard in the whispers and the murmurs of a crowd, or hinted at in the melodies of a lyre, The Guests of The Threshold receive their invitations in any number of ways. Some welcome it, some expect it, others rage against it. The Guests are those individuals who, for whatever reason, are invited to join The Threshold before they return to Berisole as a Deva. Some are chosen because they have already made significant progress towards their Work, but others are chosen for their potential. Still others are chosen for no discernible reason at all. Once marked, their bodies share a faint purple marking on their bodies that look just like the markings on the Deva that initiated them. All Guests have a hint of destiny about them, an aura of sorts that everyone can read. Of course, as much as The Threshold may try to deny it, Guests may just as well become part of The Fallen as part of The Beatified.
