All around you lies darkness and the cold waters of an unforgiving ocean. A massive volcano rises out of the sea. Built into its base is an imposing palace, made from black marble and obsidian. The sky is dark, save for thousands of twinkling stars— a reminder of what could have been. Welcome to the House of the Endless Sea. 
Everyone enters this house upon their death. The fortunate leave and ascend to the House of Stars. Those who aren’t so lucky remain here, trapped beneath the icy waters, tortured endlessly by Bahathi and her servants.
