○ . 。‧ they took full control of the wind
º ◦ ✧ it makes it hard for us to move sometimes
✹.。 and to find shade
•˚.◦ at last quarter we saw a fallen tree
·°. * ◦ it is said it was three-hundred years old

. *゜。 ゜the tree’s roots were heading to the sky
・゜*・。. reaching for the stars
.・◦。゜we did a ritual for the spirits it was holding
˚ ✧ .・✧ ° we kept small bits of its roots
.・◦ ✧ that we will bury on our way
・。・゚゚ to share the remains with our allies
✧ .・✧ by the new moon
˚ ° .・we will reach a place on a hill
. 。・゜behind three giant stones
* 。 ・。゜where a goat bleats at night

º•˚ It is believed that these stones hold magic
.・。゜our allies gather there at the new moon
༄。・ they can help us and you

。 ˚ ° . spread its feminine energy throughout the whole
mountain
•・* ‧✧ and remember the touch of all the spirits that
caressed them

.・*. this should help you reach the mutation
‧✧ . 。 find us when the moment is right for you

。.・I leave you some tools you may need
☽ .・ a stick to keep track of the cycles
º •˚ ༓ a coin worth nothing but the weight of destiny
.•* º to flip when there is no other way to choose
.・。.・゜knucklebones
✧ to bind the spell for these words to be hidden again
place one knucklebone face up on the letter
caress its curves with the tip of your nail

.•* º ~ weave the worlds
breed the words ~ .・。.
