[Faldrass] Spirit's Rest Oasis

Spirit's Rest Oasis
Image
Spirit’s Rest Oasis is located on a remote beach on the shores of Faldrass and is part of the Faldrass resort ~ arguably, the most exclusive part. The Oasis can only be reached by boat or by winged mount as there is no reliable footpath to reach it, although transport is arranged via the Resort as needed. The level of isolation is very intentional as those staying at the Oasis are trying to get away from the stress of their daily lives. The Spirit’s Rest Oasis is a circular structure with three separate levels that are linked by exterior walkways. The inner walls are made of large smooth river stones and the exterior is ornamented in sandstone. The most notable features of the building are the multiple cascading waterfalls that make their way down each of the tiers before ending at a water garden near the base. The sound of cascading water can be heard everywhere within the structure.

The Oasis serves as a retreat for individuals seeking aid with stress and anxiety. Therapists and councilors are employed at the Oasis to provide guests with access to private or group therapy sessions. There are also instructors that provide instruction in meditation.

The first floor of the Oasis contains a comfortable lobby along with a large open air chamber that is used by guests for meditation. Cushion and soft pillows litter the floor in small piles where individuals are often found meditating or resting. Stairs on the outer walkway lead to the second floor where there are several private rooms that can be rented by guests during their treatment. Customarily people will stay at the Oasis from anywhere for a couple trials to the length of a week. The guest rooms are modest but extremely clean and well cared for. There is a soft bed with crisp cotton sheets, a comfortable arm chair, a cloth pallet for meditation and a table containing a wash basin. There is a sizable window in each room that has attached shutters that can be closed during colder cycles and opened to the sea air when the temperature is warm enough. The second floor also contains a small canteen that provides guests with humble but healthy meals at least twice a day. Fruit, cheeses and breads are commonplace in meals. The food is completely vegetarian as the owner of the Oasis does not condone killing for sustenance.

The final floor of the Spirit’s Rest Oasis contains staff offices and several private meditation chambers where instructors and counselors meet with guests behind closed doors to aid them in their recovery.

The aim of Spirit's Rest Oasis is to provide people with access to instruction in meditation along with therapy sessions. Soldiers, especially those who have been maimed in battle are a common sight. Many guests are missing limbs or show serious scarring from traumatic events in their lives. Children are also seen from time to time, especially those that come from violent homes who have been brought to the Oasis for rehabilitation. Some mages are even known to frequent the Oasis, seeking insight in contending with the effects of being bonded to a Spark. Normally these cases are handled by Nyji Thoraj himself as to ensure that there are no magically induced accidents that may endanger the other guests.

Weapons of any kind are banned within the walls of the building to ensure everyone's safety.

Lissa’s hair is a startling white and her remaining eye is a soft blue.
