Nyalda Marriage Maker is a ritual in which a hero attempts to enter the Godplane and to assume the role of Nyalda in a re-enactment of the myth Nyalda's Bride Price, which tells the tale of how Nyalda secretly wins her husband.

Inviting Wheels to this mission may hinder some choices, particularly ones that are empowering to women.
