Transcript of Balance Elemental (echo)
Guthix: With heavy heart, I accept your sacrifice. I have banished the ascended. All who threaten Gielinor have been expelled. At best, this is a precaution. The Edicts should bar their return, but as long as the Stone exists, its power shall corrupt. The Stone has defied my attempts to destroy it. If I am to withdraw from this world and leave you in peace, the Stone requires a protector. I have gathered you here, at this ritual site, in the icy shadow of this mountain. Here we shall channel the power of your elements through these sacred standing stones, and achieve a blessed union. You four shall maintain the balance. You will be my final guardian of this age. Rief, wielder of the everlasting flame. You shall be the spark of life that burns evermore, and temper the frozen heart of the eternal one. Thera, druidess of the glade. You carry nature's spirit within you; one with the soil, ever-growing, altering and nurturing. You endure through the cycle of seasons, blossoming in the light, regressing in winter's chill. As I return to the earth, you shall burrow deep and we shall be as one. Ria, lady of the heavens and wielder of lightning. You shall grant my creation the breath of life and freedom of movement. Day trades with night across your infinite sky, ever-progressing into the next cycle, like sand through the hour glass. Atrew the aquamancer. You quench Rief's destructive impulses, and Thera would wither without your nourishment. Your tide washes away the detritus of complacency. The one outside of time freezes the ferocity of your great ocean, lest we drown in your life-giving water. Finally, Aeternam - the eternal one. She who lives outside of time. You were with me at this journey's beginning. You have borne the power of the World Guardian through the ages, and been witness to a future that even I shall not live to see. You witnessed even the demise of your successor. With each turn of the Great Wheel, you have been and shall be there, a frozen witness sharded across time. I ask you now to return to me that power, that you may find your final rest. Druids of the elements, I fuse you now into one being. As I return to the slumber from which you freed me, I task you to watch over the Stone. And to protect the Stone until such time as, near to death, whereby you are relieved of all duties, and shall henceforth be returned to your home plane with the gratitude and blessings of Guthix.
