What Sacrafice did Sehanine make to escape Vhauren?

Since the Chosen of Eilistraee is a religious oriented player group, naturally there is a place to have theological discussions. That is in-game religions; please leave real-world religion out of it. Debate the fine points of a certain dogma, how a church can enforce worship while staying true to its tenets or simply why one deity is better than another one is. All are free to talk about it here.

wondered this a while it doesnt expliicitly say in Evermeet island of the elves, but it hints there and in Demihuman deities, at Sehanine moonbow, making a great sacrafice to escape wherever Vhauren trapped her, right before the seldarines invasion...

Ideas what that sacrafice may have been?

I think it simply was a sacrifice of power. She spent part of her own essence to free herself just in time to save Corellon.

I would think she'd appeal to his lust for power, and offer him something he could use in that regard. But it's hard to tell. Power isn't a goal, it a tool used to achieve some goal. So this trade couldn't have been about overthrowing his mother then. Ratting mom out to dad would have been easier and more lucrative. So maybe protection from her sight on dark nights and seer magic or something of that naure?

Maybe she made a trade to some other fell power to spring her. Along the lines of Waukeen's attempted deal with Gratz, only with a better outcome.

At the base level I like the irennan's reply because it's simple and straight forward, occam's razor. However these sorts of stories are never that simple.it was likely something intended to be super over the top to prove her undying love.
