An antipode of her worst fear (emptyness and silence): everything dear and close to her, an old panel house full of people and noises, laughter, chatter in communal corridors and kitchens, kids running around. Everything's annoying and irreplacable. Trap: dream in a dream in a dream (the victim confuses numerous realities, each of them contains clues to one another).
Naghill's azeel"m From inside it looks like an ancient temple built of grey stone: tall ceiling disappearin in the dark, broad columns, a praying stone right under a narrow hole that lets a ray of bright light fall onto cold marble floor. Trap: visual tricks and illusions, driving the viewer insane.
A deep autumn forest among the mountain peaks, serene and smooth mirror of a pond within stoney shores. The path leads to a meadow with a wooden platform on it; the platform is separated by tall bookcases from a sleeping spot in the open air, on the front side there's a low tea-table with a pot and cups on a wooden tray. a large tin pot boils some water on a portable burner. Trap: a swamp.
It's his own "teahouse", an exact copy of the "smalltalk chamber" he used to have in Haelegaes. It is a dark place with a slow-spinning caroussel of gazebos that look like giant flowers hanging upside down. inside of each there's a table top and cushions, hidden by a thick curtain; such car can intake no more than three persons. Trap: squeezing walls.
High above the ground, miles and miles up away. Windy heights, bridges and passages connect flying rocks and mountain tops in the crystal sky. Trap: endless fall...up into the sky.
White sandy shore, grass, a dark strip of forest seen from afar, the road running from the beach to the far hills. A tiny cabin standing on the shore, like a chubby bird standing on long thin legs. It has got windows facing each side, except of the Eastetn side which has a door. Detailed description of the cabin's inside is given in the chapter about Resurrection, when Fernollg gets into this azeel"m to gather memories of Mavi. Trap: flood.
