Sialillion rises from the tomb and takes two steps out before being  
shaken off her feet.  It's then that she casts her eyes skyward.  Her  
jaw drops, and she's rendered speechless by the impossible sight of  
the ley lines approaching from the north and south.  She looks  
terrified.  Rooks can be heard crowing plaintively somewhere far away,  
giving voice to Sialillion's feelings of the situation.

As soon as she regains her wits she does her best to run to the bottom  
of the hill towards the boat while maintaining her footing.  She also  
has Rooks (who has been hiding in the trees nearby) get an aerial view  
of the situation.  Are there any other ley lines bending towards the  
island?  How long until the ley lines are right on top of her and the  
rest of the party?
