As the sound of music increases near the end of the meal.
A series of sand colored scarves float through the open banquet doors. They gather at points, overlapping to form a desert vista. As Quinn enters she begins to sing.
"Amid the desolation there were the remains of a once proud settlement. Though the gnolls stood strong, there were heroes to be summoned. An illusion forms among the sand colored scarves. Silhouettes of the initial party can be seen arriving to meet with Almah. They arrive to cleanse the desert. To fight off the gnolls. Exploring lost treasures. As Quinn flicks further scarves into the air, the browns are met by fiery reds. Illusory representations of the monastery, the wilds of Kelmarane, and the Battle Market appear. Along the way enemies were slain. Mysteries were encountered, and heroes were made. Suddenly the browns shift to blacks and the illusion shifts to the ruined temple grounds. But beneath the holy temple awaited not the holy light, but the corruptor Xulthos. An exaggerated battle is depicted among the passages of the underground tunnels, formed by the darkened scarves. Small figures of everyone present are seen climbing down the well, with the fiery angels standing guard. A great fight was had as a new comer showed his worth. With that you can see the illusion focus in on a dwarven figure fighting a giant moth. Though not all are well, the evil was defeated."
With the ending of her song, you can see the sadness in Quinn's eyes. Ever the accomplished court performer, whatever she is feeling doesn't impact the show as the scarves brighten - returning to the sandy tones. Blue scarves flick from Quinn's gentle hands as the illusion shifts to Kelmarane and a vision of its restoration. Caravans can be seen arriving in miniature, crossing over the bright blue of the river via a now crowded bridge. As she backs her way from the banquet hall the scarves slowly follow, the illusion shifting to a picturesque sunset before vanishing completely.
