A Digital Hero’s Journey: Part VI

The Last Part: A New Beginning

Don't forget to read the IntroductionPart IPart IIPart III, Part IV, and Part V before this last chapter of the Journey. 

Breath. Breathing.

Soaking up the fresh forest breeze into your body.

The She-Guide-Elf stands in front of the bonfire.

You are also standing in a circle around the flames.

“Our journey has just begun, warriors. This is a walk that you will only stop when the final breath allows you to rest for good. But now, it is the moment to reflect, to see how we can give a step further towards balance, inner peace and understanding. 

You have been brave enough to think, to face yourselves and to overcome every obstacle and mission I have given you in this particular journey.

It is now time to go back before the snow breaks into the forest. To sit in front of your own fire and keep learning.

You may carry your items and powers with you since they were always part of your soul.”

The She-Elf smiles and walks into the forest. You see now that she is also part of the tribe, and you will see her again. 

You all arrive at Greg's Tavern after leaving the final gathering. It feels like a real oasis, full of friends and warmth. At one side of the Tavern, a huge old library with a note contains the books written by old honorable elves and dwarfs, gnomes, wizards and witches. 

The Note says: “Knowledge comes before Understanding. Understanding Goes Beyond Knowledge”
