“The bridge emerges near the top of the dome and the rising smoke from below obscures the floor. The black onyx bridge is hardly illuminated by a row of dim candles along the edge. The tortured music from below swirls around your feet and conjures a twisted shadow at the far end of the bridge, on the other side of the central pillar. It slides towards you in time to the dark melodies and when you can barely see it at all, it spreads bloody wings.”
The upper floors contain the libraries, meditation rooms, and fleshcrafting cells. Only crossing a treacherous bridge over the central chamber and through the pillar can one reach the private sanctums of the High Priestess.
