Description summary:
The variable text depends on Ravages of Parabolan Warfare

0 - 3You can see closer things, too: the jungle canopy, the edges of your Base-Camp. Far off, the Smoking Shore.
4 - 7Parabola has not been too damaged recently: there are no armies moving on the horizon, no burnt swathes in the foliage. Your Base-Camp is safe, and not very distant.
8 - 11Here and there, the traces of battle are still visible – dead trees in the jungle, meadows that have ceased to bloom. At least your Base-Camp is safe.
12 - 19The terrain still shows the destruction of recent battles. Whole areas of the forest are laid low, and the hulks of siege-machines have been left to rot. Your Base-Camp bristles with guards.
20+Destruction from the recent war is visible everywhere. Smoke hangs in the air; ash blows across your cheek. Carrion birds circle over a field of the vanquished.

Redirects to: Perched on Top of the Dome


Far, but not far enough

You climb a few dozen feet above the floor of the jungle, fingers scrabbling at the rock. Sometimes shards of jade come away under your touch. Sometimes they simply aren't there. Put your foot on the wrong support, and you slide back to the ground.
