_____________________________________________________________The illithids live in flesh and see flesh only as tools for their will. They shape minds with their thoughts. They do not know themselves, and they know how to make others not know themselves either. They are not tool users, they are slave users. They did not know what metal was, nor what it could be used for. They are great in knowledge, but blind to those things they think they control.

The Queen is no more! How this has come to pass is not as important as what the repercussions of this will be for the People. I have led you into a thousand battles and more. I have spilled the blood of those who would oppose the Queen, and those who would harm the People. I have worn the blood of fallen warriors, and carried their tokens back to this fastness in honor.

The Astral Plane seems, to the casual observer, to be a bleak and endless expanse of silver nothingness, interrupted only by the appearance of matter from other planes of existence. And such is indeed the case - for the most part. A few instances of natural disruption in this otherwise placid state do exist, though, sweeping across the Astral in a manner similar to weather patterns and storm fronts common to other planes of existence.
