The view from the tower...
Somebody mentioned Essek being able to see the tree on the Xhorhaus from his tower, and the idea wouldn’t leave me alone. I imagine he spent a lot of time on this balcony after Nicodranas, wondering if the Nein were ever coming back, and if they’d ever forgive him.
[ID: A digital painting of Essek Thelyss, a male drow in luxurious purple robes and an intricate silver mantle. He stands on a balcony overlooking the night sky over Rosohna. A lone, giant tree juts out of the cityscape, lit by numerous globules of light. Essek’s face is in shadow, turned toward the tree, and he clutches the robes over his chest.]
