Chapter 30

Post by Freakzilla »

This room reconstructs a bit of the desert of Dune. The sandcrawler directly in
front of you dates from the Atreides times. Grouped around it, moving clockwise
from your left, are a small harvester, a carryall, a primitive spice factory and
the other support equipment. All are explained at each station. Note the
illuminated quotation above the display: "FOR THEY SHALL SUCK OF THE ABUNDANCE
OF THE SEAS AND OF THE TREASURE IN THE SAND." This ancient religious quotation
was oft repeated by the famous Gurney Halleck.

-Guide Announcement, Museum of Dar-es-Balat

The worm finally stops at the shattered remains of the Sareer wall. They dismount and the worm heads back out into the desert. They go into the nearis crack in the wall and are spilled deep into it in a sand avalanch. The thopters land and Odrade shouts for a rope and a light. Odrade recognizes it as Seitch Tabr. Her people throw down a light but they will have to wait for rope to be brought from Dar-es-balat. Meanwhile, Odrade leaves Waff and Sheeana behind to explore. There is a strong smell of spice and as she explores she feels a sense of danger growing stronger and lets it guide her. She eventually finds a secret store of spice and a message carved in the stone by Leto II. It says the Bene Gesserit will meet the same fate as everyone else, what good is survival if you don't survive whole? He asks why The Sisterhood didn't build the Golden Path, they saw the need. This doomed him to millenia of personal despair. Odrade realizes Tarazas plan and now shares her fear, the fear will remain until either she or The Sisterhood ends or the danger is removed.
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.

~Leto II, God Emperor
