Challenge #04217-K199: Slaked by Shadows

Here in my lake, sweet little one, you will see and remember your past lives. Whether you choose to remember them once you leave this beautiful pool, is entirely up to you. -- Anon Guest

There are portals to other planes in the world. Most common are the ways to Nanogh, the plane of magic. One can, with significant effort, find portals to every elemental plane, and a few others. The plane of torment is easier to find than the plane of boons. One has to look to find one's way into the planes of earth, air, fire, water, and light. Hardest to find is the portal to the plane of shadows.

Few want to, because the realm of shadows is also the realm of Death and the dead.
