"We hedge wizards keep the garden beautiful. It is our sacred duty from birth to death. We serve the garden and preserve the blessings Lyssa has bestowed upon Vabbi. It is said the seed from which the Seborhin grew was a gift from Lyssa herself. Of course the wealthy merchants, and indeed the three princes, pay more than they should for admittance. Beauty has its price, and even a hedge wizard needs to eat."
We have managed to get some sense into Lohhaj and are ready to end this waking nightmare.
"It is time to fight our final battle in hopes of saving the Seborhin and what little beauty remains in this world."
Kobahl's may be be derived from the COBOL programming language or the planet Kobol from Battlestar Galactica. Another perhaps equally likely derivation is from the German word "kobold" (an underground spirit haunting mines; a gnome).
