  • Help Wanted: PoP sig line dialog

    Does anyone happen to have a log file of all the dialog from the new TS sig line?

    It would be nice to get all the lore from this line onto a single page for those who clicked through the conversations too quickly, but I keep forgetting to start a log file when running an alt through.

    (Folks have been scolding me to ask for help more often, so I'm asking! )

    Stitch in Time Part I


    You say, "Hail, Druzzil Ro"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "Ah, you must have received my letter. I am gratified. I know it must have been confusing to receive a missive from one such as myself, but I wished to avoid frightening you, or those around you with a more... mystical calling."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "It was a bit of a surprise, that's true. Especially since this is apparently a matter requiring immediate attention – using something that unreliable doesn't seem like the most direct way to contact me."
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "True, and while it is a serious matter, time is a bit... relative in this situation."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "Oh? How is that?"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "As I am sure you are aware, the Tenets of Hate were attempting to open a portal to the Plane of Time, which would have been disastrous for all had they succeeded. Fortunately, their portal was destroyed, and they were crushed."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "Then what is the problem? It sounds like they were thwarted."
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "They were. However, the victory came with an unintended consequence... one that could be similarly devastating without assistance."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "I see. Well, I'm here and listening. What happened?"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "The damage done to the Tenet's portal had a ripple effect across the plane. While Time itself was unaffected, there is another portal into that reality, and it seems that it might have been damaged. We can feel the pull of Time, and while it is slight, it is noticeable, and growing."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "So why not just go and fix it?"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "It isn't that simple. The portal is in the Plane of Innovation, constructed by the mad gnome Meldrath the Malignant. And while we, as deities, can traverse the planes, we can't enter Innovation. We're being... denied entry by another deific power."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "And so it's up to a mortal to repair the portal?"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "It's up to a mortal to retrieve the plans for Meldrath's machine. The repairs can be made, but we need to know how he built what should have been impossible. Truly, that device is a testament to his mad genius."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "I should be able to do that. Do you know where they are?"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "No, although I would hope with your skills and ingenuity, you would be able to locate them and bring them to us."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "Fair enough. How will I get there?"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "Just use the portal within Plane of Valor. It should still be open, and will send you to a safe spot within the plane. Be wary, as we don't know exactly what you will encounter there."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "All right, I'll return when I've found the plans. Farewell."

    You say, "Hail, Meldrath the Marvelous"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Adventurer! You must know that this place is not safe! Even with my brother gone, you will find this place quite hostile!"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Meldrath the Marvelous? Is that you? What are you doing here?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "I've been able to travel more freely since my brother was disposed of. And while there have been changes – significant ones, even – to this reality, the denizens here largely still believe your kind to be intruders. You'll be hunted if you're discovered!"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "I have to risk it. I was told there is a portal to the Plane of Time here, somewhere."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Yes. Yet another one of my brother's contraptions, for his many machinations. Based on a portal machine of my own, might I add! That's why you're here?"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Yes, but specifically to find his plans for it."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "You aren't planning to use it, are you!? The Plane of Time is extremely fragile! One misstep there and you could undo us all!"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "No, no. It was damaged. We need to find a way to repair it."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Damaged? How? It should be surrounded by a weak time equipoise field. You couldn't damage it from the outside if you wanted to."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "A WHAT field? Nevermind... it wasn't damaged from the outside. We destroyed another portal to Time, and it caused a ripple that apparently caused cracks in your brother's portal."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Oh well OF COURSE – Chrono ripples would be dangerous for certain! But for all of your talents, how would you fix it?"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "I'm working with Druzzil Ro, but we need Meldrath's plans. Without them, I'm not sure that even she can repair the damage. Druzzil Ro believes the plans..."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "... would be in my brother's workshop. If, of course, he kept them. I can't be certain. But if they are here, that's where you'll find them."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Where is his workshop?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "In the factory, but you can't just wander in there and grab them."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Why not? Your brother is gone, is he not?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Yes, that's true, but his machines are still his machines – they aren't going to just let you in. Or let anyone in who isn't my brother, for that matter."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Perhaps I can find another way to get by the guards..."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "You're not going to sneak by the automatons in the factory – they'll see you for certain. And you won't be able to destroy them... not by your lonesome anyway. It's a fool's errand."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "What about disabling them?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Hmm... an overload of their systems might work, but it would be temporary. Whatever you're going to do, you'd have to do it quickly, before they were able to restart themselves."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "That's manageable, I think. But how to do that?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "I might have just the thing. Let me give you a recipe for an electrostatic trap that should do what you want it to – shut them down long enough for you to find the plans. You'll need to gather the items to make them, however. As you can see, I'm not in much shape to help you out."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "This should be enough. I think I can find what I need on my own."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Just be careful. As I said, the automatons here are on the lookout for intruders, and you will certainly qualify as one in their minds. Just use the device on one of the clockworks, and it should shut down. I'll meet you at the entrance to the factory once you have these made."
    *** Recipe: "Electric Manaetic Device (EMD)" put in recipe book. ***
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Very well, I'll see you at the entrance."


    You say, "Hail, Meldrath the Marvelous"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Ah, hello, adventurer! Did you get all of the charging devices made?"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "I believe that I did. I hope that I have enough."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "As much as I would like to say that you do... I honestly don't know exactly how many guards my brother put in here. If nothing else, you could always make some more if you needed to."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "This is true. So, should we be on our way?"
    *** The factory door has been unlocked by Meldrath the Marvelous! ***
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Yes, of course! Now, the machines in here aren't going to bother with me, so I will make my way down to where I believe his control room is. I will meet you there, if you can find your way through the factory."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "I'll meet you there."


    You say, "Hail, Meldrath the Marvelous"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "You made it! Admittedly, I am a bit surprised, but no less pleased you are here!"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Well, I don't know that I would have made it here without the devices. I'm here now though, and I need to get into the workshop."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Yes, welllll... about that."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Oh no. What's wrong, Meldrath?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "It seems that as much as my brother disliked the majority of people around him, he trusted even fewer. His workshop appears to be sealed."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Well, I can't imagine he has something as simple as a key to get in there. But there must be a mechanism for opening that door. Hmm... what about those switches on the wall there?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Oh... perhaps? I had figured that those were simply part of his experiments, but you could very well be onto something there. But you'll need to know the combination to get in."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Of course. Perhaps I can just try some until I find the right one?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Hm, well, not only would that take an exceedingly long time, I'm sure my brother accounted for that contingency. You'd likely find that entering the wrong combination too many times would bring some manner of unspeakable mechanical horror to this room to investigate. No, there must be a different way."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "He probably just remembered it. He was certainly smart enough to keep it in his own head."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Yes, but it's more likely it was a revolving combination. And if that's the case, then the solution must be... yes! That! It must be that!"
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Wait, what? What are you looking at?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "This automaton. It's not built like the others. It appears to just have a series of interfacing cords."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "So?"
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Sooo... I'm willing to bet that the combination changed, but was kept here among the clockworks. If that's the case, this bot is probably how he got the new combination each time."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "But it's in pieces..."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "It's in pieces NOW, but that's probably because he was interrupted while he was finishing it. If you can gather the pieces of the bot, you should be able to get it functioning again! Here... let me take a look..."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "All right."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Yes, no problem. Quite rudimentary, as a matter of fact. And here we go. This should show you how to repair the unit and get it functioning again. You'll need a few parts, which I've listed on the recipe."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "Thank you, Meldrath."
    Meldrath the Marvelous says to you, "Oh, and be careful once you go in. I'm sure this door isn't his last line of defense, but I'm not sure what is on the other side."
    You say to Meldrath the Marvelous, "I'll keep that in mind. I appreciate the help."

    You say, "Hail, Druzzil Ro"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "Welcome back, Aradunakhor. I hope your journey was successful?"
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "I think it was! Hopefully these have the information you need to make the repairs."
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "Oh, if only I could do such a thing. But no, it isn't I that will be making the necessary fixes to the Time device. That responsibility will be with Varig instead. Only he possesses the skill needed to do what needs to be done."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "All right, well, where is he?"
    Druzzil Ro says to you, "Presently, he is on the Coliseum of Valor. These plans will need to go to him, if you would be so kind."
    You say to Druzzil Ro, "Ah, I see. Very well, I'll take these to him. Farewell for now, Druzzil."

    You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
    Varig Ro says to you, "You must be Aradunakhor. I was told you would be seeking me out."
    You say to Varig Ro, "Varig Ro? You are the one Druzzil said would repair the damage to Meldrath's time device."
    Varig Ro says to you, "Indeed, provided that you brought the plans to me. I have no concept of how a mortal could have built such a thing."
    You say to Varig Ro, "Well, good news then – I have retrieved the plans from Meldrath's workshop. Hopefully these can help you make the repairs that you need to."
    Varig Ro says to you, "Hmm... all right... yes. These should do. Interesting."
    You say to Varig Ro, "What did you find?"

    -End of part 1 - dialog continues to offer part 2. If you stop there, dialog will start back at next sentence from Varig Ro -


    You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
    Varig Ro says to you, "There are some truly ingenious elements to the design of the Time device. And if I'm understanding this right, he used some specialized alloys of his own concept."
    You say to Varig Ro, "Do you know what they are?"
    Varig Ro says to you, "I do, but recreating this in the exact compositions that he did would take time and trial. We haven't got those in abundance."
    You say to Varig Ro, "What else could we use, then?"
    Varig Ro says to you, "I believe he used these alloys both for their strength, and for their ability to channel high and sustained magical energies without evaporating. If I'm not mistaken, we could achieve a similar goal using an alloy of pure solidified lightning."
    You say to Varig Ro, "Pure... wait, how could we get something like that? From Karana?"
    Varig Ro says to you, "Correct. I will send the Rainkeeper a missive asking for the lightning, and I'll work on the alloy here. If you could, meet with him and collect the lightning, and bring it back to me. Together, we should be able to finish this quickly."
    You say to Varig Ro, "I'll make my way to the Bastion, then. Farewell."

      Into Bastion of Thunder
      ***


      You say, "Hail, Karana"
      Karana says to you, "Speak."
      You say to Karana, "Greetings, Rainkeeper. I was sent by Varig Ro to retrieve the solidified lightning that we need to repair Meldrath's Time device. He said he would contact you and let you know."
      Karana says to you, "He did."
      You say to Karana, "Oh, okay great. Is it nearby?"
      Karana says to you, "Mortal, perhaps you have not been well-informed, but the Bastion of Thunder was recently assaulted by the minions of the Tenets of Hate. My efforts have been focused on repairing the damage they had done, and returning my home to its former glory. I have not the time nor desire to fulfill his request personally."
      You say to Karana, "But without it, we won't be able to repair the device!"
      Karana says to you, "I am aware. Therefore, you will collect what it is that Varig Ro needs."
      You say to Karana, "Me? But I have no idea how to..."
      Karana says to you, "Of course you do not. We will amend that situation so that you can perform the task yourself."
      You say to Karana, "All right well, how would we get started?"
      Karana says to you, "Speak with Voonark, the Forgemaster. I have informed him that you will be visiting him presently. The creatures that walk my halls will not attack you, so long as you stay to your task and do not give them a reason to view you as a threat. He will be expecting you. Go now."
      You say to Karana, "I see... very well, I will make my way there. Farewell."


      You say, "Hail, Voonark"
      Voonark says to you, "What?"
      You say to Voonark, "Voonark? Karana said I should speak to you about the solidified lightning. Do you have it available?"
      Voonark says to you, "HAHAHAHA NO, of course not! I had no intention of making the lightning. All I was to do was explain how you might get it yourself!"
      You say to Voonark, "... Okay. Well, let us get started then. I need to get these materials back to Varig Ro."
      Voonark says to you, "Well, don't let me keep you WAITING then! Are you ready?"
      You say to Voonark, "I believe I am."
      Voonark says to you, "The lightning itself is not something that you can wield. You'll need something to attract it and contain it."
      You say to Voonark, "Ah, like a lightning rod?"
      Voonark says to you, "Ha, maybe there is hope for you! Yes, a lightning rod. You're going to need conductive metals to make the rods, however."
      You say to Voonark, "Where can I find those?"
      Voonark says to you, "Look in the atrium. You'll find orbs of zinc, aluminum, and copper there, which you will need to combine together to make the rods that you need. You'll have to collect several of them though, if you're meaning to collect a decent amount of lightning."
      You say to Voonark, "That sounds doable. I'll get to work..."
      Voonark says to you, "I'm not finished. Even though the rods are made to conduct lightning, they aren't made to HOLD it. If you're going to do that long enough to hold the electricity, you'll need to properly temper the rods. Look around for piles of Torden Clay. If you combine that with the pure water from the Hall of the Rainkeeper, it should work as a proper temper once it is fired."
      You say to Voonark, "That doesn't seem too hard, though."
      Voonark says to you, "Oh, is that so? Do you have a wyvern in your back pocket that can fire the temper for you, then?"
      You say to Voonark, "Wait, a wyvern?"
      Voonark says to you, "That's what I thought. Yes, a wyvern. You'll need the help of one of the wyverns in Sandstorm Commons to properly temper the rods with their breath. Doing it by hand would take... longer than you'll be alive, that's for certain."
      You say to Voonark, "I see. All right, so I'll need to collect the components, make the rods, and then take them to the wyvern to finish the temper."
      Your zone reuse timer for Torden, Bastion of Thunder: Lightning Strikes [Tradeskill] has been set. You can leave and re-enter this instance for the next 17 hours 57 minutes.
      Voonark says to you, "That should do it. Now if that's all, I'd like to get back to my own work."
      You say to Voonark, "Fair enough. I'll be on my way then."

      *** Harvest and craft everything ***

      You say, "Hail, Edlias"
      Edlias says to you, "Ah... a mortal. A delicious looking mortal."
      You say to Edlias, "Now now, Karana told the denizens of this place that I was free to move about, safe from harm, provided that I did not do anything to provoke you."
      Edlias says to you, "Hrrnn... yesss, but your very presence is provoking to my stomach."
      You say to Edlias, "Enough. I was sent to get your help."
      Edlias says to you, "Oh, very well. With what?"
      You say to Edlias, "These rods – they need to be tempered, and Voonark said you could do the job."
      Edlias says to you, "I can."
      You say to Edlias, "Okay... WILL you, then?"
      Edlias says to you, "Perhaps, although you will have to retrieve something first."
      You say to Edlias, "What, like some kind of offering? You understand that time is something we need to pay attention to here, right?"
      Edlias says to you, "Your urgency is not my urgency, mortal. But that being the case, no, it isn't something to satiate my hunger or my vanity. You need a way to cool the rods, which will melt quickly after I burn them."
      You say to Edlias, "I see. What is it that I need?"
      Edlias says to you, "Water, ice, I don't know. Something cold enough to chill the rods that won't evaporate as soon as the heat touches them. Use an ice block from the Glacier Tower. It will do, provided that it doesn't melt on the way here."
      You say to Edlias, "Okay, so I'll need to retrieve a block of ice from the tower, and bring it back here before it melts."
      Edlias says to you, "Correct. You'd best be on your way, if ‘time is something we need to pay attention to.'"
      You say to Edlias, "I'll return soon."

      *** You need to move this block to somewhere near Edlias before it melts!! ***

      You say, "Hail, Edlias"
      Edlias says to you, "Ah, look at what's come back."
      You say to Edlias, "Hello again, wyvern. I'm here, and I've brought the ice block as you asked."
      Edlias says to you, "Indeed. Indeed you did."
      You say to Edlias, "And will you fire the rods now?"
      Edlias says to you, "I will. Place them in the ice block as soon as they are burned, and they should be tempered for what you need."
      You say to Edlias, "I understand. Let's begin."

      *** Place the rods ***

      Edlias says, "Step aside, mortal."

      *** Watch her breathe fire ***

      Edlias says, "Job done."
      Edlias says, "I've fired the rods, as promised. Now take them and go before my stomach rumbles, again."

      You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
      Varig Ro says to you, "You've returned. And you have the solidified lightning, I hope?"
      You say to Varig Ro, "It took quite a bit of doing, but yes, I have them with me."
      Varig Ro says to you, "Excellent. This should work well as a replacement for Meldrath's alloys. I'll get to work on it immediately... although without the seals, I'm not sure what good it will do."
      You say to Varig Ro, "The seals? What do you mean?"

      -End of part 2 - dialog continues to offer part 3. If you stop there, dialog will start back at next sentence from Varig Ro -

      You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
      Varig Ro says to you, "It isn't enough to just close the portal into Time – it must be sealed shut, with the combined deific powers of the Celestial Order to maintain the seal."
      You say to Varig Ro, "But the Order is largely united in this effort, are they not?"
      Varig Ro says to you, "While most of us are united, some have not contributed to the effort, be it by choice or chance."
      You say to Varig Ro, "What do you mean?"
      Varig Ro says to you, "Well, let's take two examples. Solusek Ro has not contributed the energy of his plane to the seal, and neither has Bertoxxulous. Solusek, although he supports the effort, has withdrawn to confer with Fennin Ro – but for what purpose is unknown to us. We have been unsuccessful in our efforts to reach him."
      You say to Varig Ro, "I see. What about Bertoxxulous? Is he not working with the pantheon?"
      Varig Ro says to you, "Not at all. His demeanor has been... confrontational whenever we attempted to engage with him, and he refuses to help with the effort. But without his planar energies, the seal would be far weaker."
      You say to Varig Ro, "Is that what you need? The energies of the plane itself?"
      Varig Ro says to you, "Yes, but gathering such a thing wouldn't be an easy task."
      You say to Varig Ro, "I am no stranger to difficult tasks. If you can provide me with a vessel, perhaps I can find a way to gather the energy that you need."
      Varig Ro says to you, "I'm not certain the other members of the Order would agree to such a thing, but then, I'm also not certain we have a choice in the matter. Very well, I'll provide you with a repository, but bear in mind – what you are doing is fraught with dangers."
      You say to Varig Ro, "I figured it would be. Now, how would I gather power from Solusek Ro's Tower?"
      Varig Ro says to you, "You'll need to find something that emits a massive amount of energy. Something that not only embodies the plane, but also is a pure piece of that place. Destructive and brilliant all at once."
      You say to Varig Ro, "And you don't know what that might be?"
      Varig Ro says to you, "That is something you'll have to find out when you get there. Search for clues once you're there, and perhaps you can find something that will provide you with the energy that you need."
      You say to Varig Ro, "I'll do that. And what about Disease?"
      Varig Ro says to you, "Hmm... well, start at the Crypt of Decay. If there were some pure concentrations of planar energies in Bertoxxulous' home, you'd likely find them there. But where exactly? I'm not sure. That being said, entering the Crypt will not be easy. It isn't likely it'll be open to you, so you'll have to find a way in."
      You say to Varig Ro, "Very well. I'll start with Solusek Ro's Tower, and see what I can find there. Farewell."

        You say to Varig Ro, "I see. What about Bertoxxulous? Is he not working with the pantheon?"
        Varig Ro says to you, "Not at all. His demeanor has been... confrontational whenever we attempted to engage with him, and he refuses to help with the effort. But without his planar energies, the seal would be far weaker."
        You say to Varig Ro, "Is that what you need? The energies of the plane itself?"
        Varig Ro says to you, "Yes, but gathering such a thing wouldn't be an easy task."
        You say to Varig Ro, "I am no stranger to difficult tasks. If you can provide me with a vessel, perhaps I can find a way to gather the energy that you need."
        Varig Ro says to you, "I'm not certain the other members of the Order would agree to such a thing, but then, I'm also not certain we have a choice in the matter. Very well, I'll provide you with a repository, but bear in mind – what you are doing is fraught with dangers."
        You say to Varig Ro, "I figured it would be. Now, how would I gather power from Solusek Ro's Tower?"
        Varig Ro says to you, "You'll need to find something that emits a massive amount of energy. Something that not only embodies the plane, but also is a pure piece of that place. Destructive and brilliant all at once."
        You say to Varig Ro, "And you don't know what that might be?"
        Varig Ro says to you, "That is something you'll have to find out when you get there. Search for clues once you're there, and perhaps you can find something that will provide you with the energy that you need."
        You say to Varig Ro, "I'll do that. And what about Disease?"
        Varig Ro says to you, "Hmm... well, start at the Crypt of Decay. If there were some pure concentrations of planar energies in Bertoxxulous' home, you'd likely find them there. But where exactly? I'm not sure. That being said, entering the Crypt will not be easy. It isn't likely it'll be open to you, so you'll have to find a way in."
        You say to Varig Ro, "Very well. I'll start with Solusek Ro's Tower, and see what I can find there. Farewell."

        You say, "Hail, The Immolated Lexicon"
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "What is this? What is this? Who are you?"
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "A speaking tome! Not something I see every day. I am Aradunakhor."
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "Interesting! Something tells me that you are not a denizen of this place. What are you doing here, I must ask? I must!"
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "Well, I'm looking for something here, and I'm wondering if these runes might hold some clues. But they aren't written in a script that I'm familiar with."
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "I'm familiar with them! I've seen them plenty. This same script graces my pages, as a matter of fact."
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "Oh! What do they say, then?"
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "Oh, I don't know. I just know that script. I thought that's what you meant."
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "Okay YES, I did mean that, but I wanted to READ them so I could see what they said. I'm looking for a pure expression of the power of this place."
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "That script might help, then. It describes how to help hatch the egg of Arlyxir, the great phoenix. If you were looking for a more pure piece of this place, you couldn't do much better than that. But you'd need a way to absorb it..."
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "Wait, hang on. You just told me that you didn't know what they said!"
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "I don't know what they say! But I know what they're about. It's different, as I'm sure you can appreciate."
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "... right. So I have an idea."
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "Fascinating! What is it?"
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "Would YOU be able to read the runes for me? Perhaps that would help. I need to know what they SAY."
        Your zone reuse timer for Solusek Ro's Tower: From the Ashes [Tradeskill] has been set. You can leave and re-enter this instance for the next 18 hours.
        The Immolated Lexicon says to you, "Huh, that would be interesting. Sure, take me to the ones that you want to read, and I'll translate them for you!"
        You say to The Immolated Lexicon, "That sounds perfect. Here, come with me."

        You've got to be kidding... how long is this going to take??
        Wow, that really is a LOT of ashes. Collecting them all is going to take forever...
        There's no way I can fit all of these in the vessel. Maybe baby phoenix...es only need a bit of ash?
        What is the plural of 'phoenix' anyway? Phoenixi? Pheonices?
        Aw hell, the vessel looks full enough already!

        The flame sparks flee as you approach them!
        A flame spark collides with the lava cauldron, causing a violent transfer of energy!
        As flame sparks continue to explode on the cauldron, its contents become more and more volitile!
        The cauldron has become hotter than you thought possible.
        Feeding on the extreme heat, the ashes in the incubator fuse together, giving birth to a baby phoenix!

        Varig Ro says to you, "You've returned, and it is clear from the filth upon your clothing, you've been inside the Crypt of Decay. Were you able to power the seals?"
        You say to Varig Ro, "It was quite the undertaking, but yes – I believe I was able to create the seals that you needed."
        Varig Ro says to you, "Hmm... there is no mistaking it. These are suffused with deific power. I admit that I am quite impressed, mortal. This would have been difficult even for a member of the Celestial Order. Well done."
        You say to Varig Ro, "Will you be able to seal the portal now?"

        You say to Varig Ro, "What are you missing?"
        Varig Ro says to you, "The essence of Hate. The power of Innoruuk and Lanys."
        You say to Varig Ro, "I... see. Is that something that I can retrieve from the Plane of Hate? Like I did with Solusek and Bertoxxulous's powers?"
        Varig Ro says to you, "Not in this case. The gods are an extension of their planes and are tied to it. However, both Innoruuk and Lanys have been destroyed. That power is now scattered, and isn't pure in the same way the other energies were. We'll need to find another way."
        You say to Varig Ro, "Perhaps I could speak with Druzzil? Maybe she has some ideas on what could be done."
        Varig Ro says to you, "Very well. As long as you can bring me Hate's seal, I can finish the barrier and we can repair the device."

          You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
          Varig Ro says to you, "While the two seals that you brought me will help immensely, we still need one more piece of the puzzle to ensure the barrier holds."
          You say to Varig Ro, "What are you missing?"
          Varig Ro says to you, "The essence of Hate. The power of Innoruuk and Lanys."
          You say to Varig Ro, "I... see. Is that something that I can retrieve from the Plane of Hate? Like I did with Solusek and Bertoxxulous's powers?"
          Varig Ro says to you, "Not in this case. The gods are an extension of their planes and are tied to it. However, both Innoruuk and Lanys have been destroyed. That power is now scattered, and isn't pure in the same way the other energies were. We'll need to find another way."

          Varig Ro says to you, "Very well. As long as you can bring me Hate's seal, I can finish the barrier and we can repair the device."
          You say to Varig Ro, "I'll return then."



          You say, "Hail, Druzzil Ro"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "I have heard from Varig that your endeavor is going well. Commendable."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "It WAS going well, but we've run into a block."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Oh? What is that?"
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "I was able to collect essences of Solusek and Bertoxxulous, but we need one more – that of Hate."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Ah, and you don't have a clear way to get it."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Right, and I am hoping that you might have some insight."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "I admit, I don't have a clear answer. Without either of the two expressions of Hate available, it might be impossible to collect what we need."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Are you sure? We were able to collect the essence of two other gods on their own planes. Perhaps there are answers on the Plane of Hate as well?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Hmm, there could be. In fact, you might be able to learn more by listening to the Mistresses of Hate. The plane is likely in some kind of turmoil, and they might have some kind of insight – even if it is inadvertent."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Ah, so perhaps they can point us to a pure expression of Hate's power?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Exactly. You're not going to be able to just approach them though – you won't be welcome there. You'll need to... drop in on their conversation, and listen for anything interesting."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "It sounds like you might already have an idea for that?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Here, take this. It will show you how to create a small device to see through the eyes of one of the denizens of Hate. However, you'll need some of the latent energies of Hate to attune it properly, so you'll have to gather some materials and craft it there."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Ah, all right. I'll look for a place to do that, then. Anything more?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Once you have some information, return to me and inform me of what you've found."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "I'll do that. Farewell for now."

          You say, "Hail, A wandering hermit"
          a wandering hermit says to you, "Why? Why am I here?"
          You say to a wandering hermit, "Wait, are... you who the Mistresses were talking about?"
          a wandering hermit says to you, "I can't... reach it! It's too far. Too far!"
          You say to a wandering hermit, "What is too far? What are you looking for?"
          a wandering hermit says to you, "It isn't yours! It belongs to me, and me only! Stay away! I'm glad you're gone!"
          You say to a wandering hermit, "Are you still talking to me?"
          a wandering hermit says to you, "It must be mine... I must have it..."
          You say to a wandering hermit, "I think you might be who I'm looking for. Druzzil Ro needs to hear about this."


          You say, "Hail, Druzzil Ro"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Hello again, Aradunakhor, I'm pleased that you've returned from the Plane of Hate. What did you find out?"
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Well, for the sake of an explanation, the Mistresses first seemed like they wanted to claim the power of Hate for themselves. They were having discussions about it when I arrived."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "That makes sense. I doubt they are the only minions of Hate that would be looking to take the mantle for themselves."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "That wasn't all, though. They said something... strange. About the power not belonging to them, and instead belonging to someone in Nektulos Forest."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Nektulos? Who would they be speaking of?"
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "I wondered as well, so I went there to investigate, and I found an addled old man wandering the woods. He kept saying that "it was out of reach" and that "it was his." Could he be talking about the power of Hate?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "That's... not possible. Unless..."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Did you have a thought?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "I wonder if it's possible that Lanys' plan had an unintended side effect of its own. If she didn't quite accomplish what she set out to."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "What do you mean?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "I believe that 'addled old man' might be a mortal shell of Innoruuk himself."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "What? How would you know that?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "It's entirely possible that what Lanys did left something behind. Rather than destroying Innoruuk, it simply reduced him to a piece of what he was."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "So what would we do, then?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Dire circumstances call for remarkable feats, and I believe the feat we need to accomplish is to return Innoruuk to his status as a deity."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Wait, is that... can that be done?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "The elevation of a mortal to deific or near-deific power has been accomplished several times. This empowerment, however, will be of a scale larger than has happened in the past. And we'll need your help."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "MY help? What can I do in a situation like this?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "The energies that made Innoruuk, and Lanys, what they were are likely still scattered where Lanys was destroyed. We will need to collect it and transfer that power back to Innoruuk. However, there's no way that I could enter the Molten Throne and collect the energy myself – Fennin would know I was there instantly, and although we've reached an accord, we were told not to enter that place again."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "So what, you need me to collect the energy?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Correct. First, you'll need to speak with Varig – he'll need to provide you with a vessel that can collect and contain the scattered deific powers. Once you have that, we can begin the apotheosis."
          Good version : "I have huge reservations about doing everything that will serve Innoruuk, but it seems we have little choice. I'll meet with Varig Ro."
          Evil version : You say to Druzzil Ro, "I will be glad to return the Prince of Hate to his rightful station! I'll meet with Varig Ro, right away."


          You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
          Varig Ro says to you, "No."
          You say to Varig Ro, "No... what?"
          Varig Ro says to you, "I'm not going to make you the vessel. Innoruuk should stay where he is at."
          You say to Varig Ro, "Why?? You yourself pointed out how important his energies were to making sure the seal was as strong as possible. The whole reason I set out on this task was because of you!"
          Varig Ro says to you, "The barrier should be strong enough without the influence of Innoruuk. We can just leave him where he is, and I'll devise another way to keep the door closed. Even if I have to guard it myself."
          You say to Varig Ro, "Druzzil could not think of an alternate solution. Why can't we just..."
          Varig Ro says to you, "I said no. I will not make the device. Without it, your endeavor will fail, but my heart will be intact. Now go. I have work to finish."
          You say to Varig Ro, "I'll have to tell Druzzil of this."


          You say, "Hail, Druzzil Ro"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Back so soon? What happened?"
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Did you inform Varig Ro of our plan?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Of course. I wanted him to have the vessel ready for your arrival."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Well, that's not what happened. He's refusing to make the vessel, and now is saying he would rather guard the portal himself rather than empower Innoruuk. Something about his heart remaining intact. Was there some kind of animosity between them?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "His heart... ? Oh... I think I know."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "What is it?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "My brother has an umm... a fascination for Erollisi Marr. He's been taken advantage of, on more than one occasion, due to it. I suspect that since Innoruuk is the embodiment of Hate and she is the embodiment of Love that he's balking at the idea of restoring him."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "But he was the one who mentioned that we needed to gather the essence of Hate! What was he thinking we would do?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "I can't say exactly. I assume something similar to what you did in Solusek Ro's Tower and the Plane of Disease, but in this case, without the power of the deity present, it isn't something we can do. We need Innoruuk to return."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Can you speak with him and explain, then?"
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "He's not going to move on this, I suspect. I don't know who could talk him out of his decision once he's made it."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Hm. I'll bet Erollisi could."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "You're proposing to have Erollisi Marr give him her approval?"
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "More or less. I think if anyone can move his position, it's going to be her."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "Interesting plan. It seems like it's worth a try. Perhaps you could speak with her, then?"
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "I could do that. In the meantime, maybe you could devise a backup in case this fails."
          Druzzil Ro says to you, "I'm not sure there is a backup, but I'll muse on it."
          You say to Druzzil Ro, "Fair enough! I'll return soon."


          You say, "Hail, Erollisi Marr"
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "My heart swells to see you once more, Aradunakhor. I have not forgotten your hand in my return! I hope you are well."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Hello to you, Erollisi. Yes, I am, but I have an issue that may require your attention."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Is that so? What could it be, I wonder? An unrequited fancy, perhaps?"
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Funny you should mention that, because that's actually why I'm here. Although not for myself."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Oh, I am aware. The Forge Lord is a blusher! The iron skin of his cheeks glow like searing metal, in my presence. You're not here to play matchmaker to the gods, are you?"
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "No, Huntress."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "But you are here on his behalf. I've known that you've been working with him for some time, and I followed the threads back to me. Although admittedly, if it isn't out of a desire to see his love requited, then I don't know why."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "It's... complicated, if you have some time for me to explain."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Is it now? That's a phrase you mortals seem fond of using, especially in matters of the heart. But yes, I'd like to hear your tale."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Well, as I'm sure you are aware, the portal to Time needs to be repaired and sealed."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Indeed. I have already provided some of my power to ensure that it is."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Right well, while most all of the pantheon has done so, there is a notable exception. The power of Hate is not covered, and thus, the barrier is lacking its strength."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Of course."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "We need it to truly seal off the Plane of Time, and unfortunately, we don't have a way to get the pure power of Hate. At least, not as we could with the other deific energies."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "What is your plan, then?"
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "We need to return Innoruuk to his standing among the Celestial Order."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "... I see."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "To do that, Varig needs to make us a vessel so that we can collect Innoruuk's scattered energies. But..."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "He refuses."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Right. And without it, we don't have a way to do what we need to."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "There are other ways, sure. But not in the time that we have. That would be the most efficient way to initiate apotheosis."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "I'm here to ask you for a favor. We need Varig to make the vessel, but he refuses to do so."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Because his hang up is due to me, and our long and storied past involving Hate and Treachery."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "I'm hoping you will convince him to do so."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "If I tell him that you and your plan have my blessing, that I'm all right with bringing back Innoruuk, then maybe he'll relent. What a conundrum."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Indeed. But without his return --"
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Who would claim the Throne of Hate in his continued absence, Ullkorruuk? No! Our differences are insurmountable, but Innoruuk is who we need. He would see reason. I'll do it."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "You will?"
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "While Innoruuk will always be the antithesis of what I stand for and ultimately, what I am, there would be little point to either if someone were able to do what the Tenets nearly did. It could be catastrophic."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Our thoughts exactly."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "All right, take this."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "What is it?"
          *** You receive Silvered Heart****
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "It's a silvered heart, imbued with a piece of my essence. With it, you can create a favor that will prove to The Forge Lord that my wishes are sincere."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "You need me to create it?"
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "Correct. Doing so will show him that my wishes align with yours, and leave little room for argument. Hopefully, this will be all the encouragement he needs. Now, collect a proper chain and a golden casing for the heart, and it will act as my favor. You should find these on Norrath near my shrines, where they were offered with sincerest love and devotion."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Thank you, Erollisi."
          Erollisi Marr says to you, "And I believe it is past time I had a talk with him. But perhaps once the current crisis is passed, I'll do so. One thing at a time."
          You say to Erollisi Marr, "Indeed. Farewell for now."

          You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
          Varig Ro says to you, "What is it?"
          You say to Varig Ro, "I have something for you."
          Varig Ro says to you, "Oh? What did you find?"
          You say to Varig Ro, "Here. This is for you."
          Varig Ro says to you, "... This was uncalled for."
          You say to Varig Ro, "You know what it is, then? If that's so, then you know what her wishes are."
          Varig Ro says to you, "Does she not know what this means? That once more Innoruuk will plague her and the entire Celestial Order? Why would she desire such a thing?"
          You say to Varig Ro, "She doesn't, Varig. But she knows there is no other way now – without Innoruuk, we're only delaying the inevitable. You know this, deep down. There isn't another way, and she agrees. Now please, I need the vessel."
          Varig Ro says to you, "I should refuse. I should stand against this madness but... if it is as she wishes, I will not. I'll make you the vessel."
          You say to Varig Ro, "I am truly sorry, Varig. But thank you."

          -End of part 4 - dialog continues to offer part 5. If you stop there, dialog will start back at next sentence from Varig Ro -

          You say, "Hail, Varig Ro"
          Varig Ro says to you, "Before you can use this, it must be empowered with Hate's essence, which scattered within The Molten Throne. Once it is full, simply break it in the presence of Innoruuk, and it should return to its... master."
          You say to Varig Ro, "Anything else that I should know?"
          Varig Ro says to you, "Remember the minions of Fire will not suffer your presence. If you are discovered in The Molten Throne, expect them to be hostile. You'll have to keep your distance from everything in that place. Let my sister know when you are done, and she will guide you to the next stage of the plan."
          You say to Varig Ro, "Thank you, Forge Lord. And farewell."

            You say, "Hail, Druzzil Ro"
            Druzzil Ro says to you, "I hope you have good news, Aradunakhor."
            You say to Druzzil Ro, "I have more than that. Here is the vessel, already filled."
            Druzzil Ro says to you, "That is fantastic! With that, we should be able to do what needs to be done. But first, you'll need a shield."
            You say to Druzzil Ro, "What for?"
            Druzzil Ro says to you, "As soon as you begin the apotheosis, the other deities will know – especially Saryn and Ullkorruuk. They will not allow the process to finish. You will need a way to keep them out long enough for the process to finish."
            You say to Druzzil Ro, "And do you have the shield?"
            Druzzil Ro says to you, "Here is the metetherial core. With it, go to Khali'Yrzu and Kahli'Vahla and collect the other components – ore for a yzrurite casing, metetherial threads, and aetherite crystal shards. With those, you should be able to make the metetherial shield, which will repel their attacks... for a time."
            You say to Druzzil Ro, "I understand."
            Druzzil Ro says to you, "Once it has been made, you may head to Nektulos Forest and find the wandering hermit again. Although he will not remain so much longer. Once you have the seal of Hate, bring it to Varig, and he'll finish the casing for the portal."
            You say to Druzzil Ro, "I will. Farewell for now."

            You say, "Hail, A wandering hermit"
            a wandering hermit says to you, "It's... close! It's CLOSE! Do you have it!? IT IS MINE!"
            You say to a wandering hermit, "This vessel? It's definitely yours. I hope you're ready."
            a wandering hermit says to you, "It doesn't belong to you! You can't keep it!"
            You say to a wandering hermit, "[Hand the Hate-Imbued Vessel to Innoruuk]"

            ***Nektulos Forest: Apotheosis [Tradeskill]***

            You say, "Hail, A wandering hermit"
            a wandering hermit says to you, "My mind... returning. The vessel you opened was... not enough."
            You say to a wandering hermit, "What do you mean, not enough? It was filled with the essence of Hate!"
            a wandering hermit says to you, "It has... torn a rift into my plane. But the seal... seal must be removed!"
            You say to a wandering hermit, "I sense the Hate. Where is this rift?"
            a wandering hermit says, "There! A wellspring of... Hate! Waiting to be released..."
            a wandering hermit points at the path behind you.
            You say, "Releasing this energy should activate the shield."
            a wandering hermit says, "Feel them... coming..."



            Saryrn says, "Begone, mortal!"
            Ullkorruuk says, "You foolish child! Do you not know who that is??"
            Saryrn says, "Your punishment for aiding Innoruuk will be severe!"
            Ullkorruuk says, "We must not let him reclaim our power!"
            Saryrn says, "A spear through the heart ought to do it!"
            Sensing a weakness forming in the barrier, the creatures of Torment and Hate flood to it!
            You infuse the rift with Hatred, mending it and causing an explosion of energy!
            Power from the Plane of Hate continues to flow into Innoruuk...
            Saryrn says, "Impale!"
            Saryrn says, "Die!"

            You must seal the crack that has formed in the shield!
            You infuse the rift with Hatred, mending it and causing an explosion of energy!
            Power from the Plane of Hate continues to flow into Innoruuk...
            Saryrn says, "I release you of your mortal coil!"

            You infuse the rift with Hatred, mending it and causing an explosion of energy!
            Innoruuk is nearing full power...
            Saryrn says, "A spear through the heart ought to do it!"

            You infuse the rift with Hatred, mending it and causing an explosion of energy!
            The barrier bursts!

            Innoruuk says, "I am restored!"
            Saryrn says, "Innoruuk! Forgive me, I didn't reali... - AUGH!"
            Ullkorruuk says, "Father! I merely wished to..."
            Innoruuk says, "Silence, traitorous wretches! I will reward your insolence with an eternity of torment!"
            Saryrn says, "No! Not the Plane of Hate!"

            *** Shard of Hate: New Ownership [Tradeskill] ***


            Innoruuk says, "Writhe, worm! Enjoy the fruits of your treachery!"
            Ullkorruuk says, "Release me! Release me and I will... serve!! Arrrgghh!"
            Innoruuk says, "Remember this, Ullkorruuk! Remember the price you paid for your betrayal!"
            Ullkorruuk says, "Arrgggh!! Enough!! ENOUGH!! Ahhhh!!"
            Innoruuk says, "This all belongs to me, AND ME ALONE! Never forget that!"
            Ullkorruuk says, "The power... was here to take! I never... arrgghh! Wanted you destroyed!! Nnnngggg!!"
            Innoruuk says, "You could never claim what is not yours, worm! Did you think I was gone? Did you think I would never find out?"
            Ullkorruuk says, "This... this... unnn... isn't over! Arrrggghh!! IT'S NOT OVER!"

            Innoruuk says, "You think you know torment, Saryn? I will show you torment as you have never conceived!"
            Saryrn says, "Aaarrgghh! The mortals will pay! I will show them all... pure... torment!! AAAAHHHH!!!"
            Innoruuk says, "What should I do with you now, Saryn? Continue the torment, or end it... forever? CHOOSE, WORM!"
            Saryrn says, "Ahhhrrggghh! How... how were we to know!? You were... destroyed!!"
            Innoruuk says, "Perhaps you will know better than to EVER attempt to claim what is mine! Until then, writhe! Twist in pain, insect!"
            Saryrn says, "You were dead! If it wasn't for us, what would become of this place??"
            Innoruuk says, "Do you understand the price for trying to claim my throne? You are nothing compared to me, and you deserve to have nothing!"
            Saryrn says, "Noooo! Arrgghhh! Don't... send me back into... darkness! Noooo!!"
            Innoruuk says, "What was it? Were you angry that I had taken away your power? Were you looking for revenge? How about I send you back into the abyss for your crimes??"
            Saryrn says, "Argghh... the pain...!! The beautiful... torment!!"


            You say, "Hail, Innoruuk"
            Innoruuk says to you, "Ah, I suppose you think that I should thank you, mortal? Returning me to my proper form, ensuring that my power did not fall to the... unworthy."
            You say to Innoruuk, "I'm not here for thanks, I am here because I need..."
            Innoruuk says to you, "Yes, yes. I know. You need a piece of my power. A way to keep the portal to Time locked – a way to prevent a catastrophe."
            You say to Innoruuk, "Correct, and yours is the only piece we're missing."
            Innoruuk says to you, "Indeed. On one hand, perhaps I should just enter the Plane of Time while the cracks allow me to do so. I could rewrite all of history IN MY IMAGE, I could wipe not just the other weak deities from existence, but all of you pathetic mortals as well! I would reign above a beautiful world of hatred and darkness!"
            You say to Innoruuk, "The Order would never let you..."
            Innoruuk says to you, "I am aware of this! And I've already been reduced to a form as worthless as yours once. I don't care to have it happen again, and I haven't regained my full strength yet."
            You say to Innoruuk, "Then I will need your seal to finish the casing."
            Innoruuk says to you, "Oh, you may have it. But I'm not going to give it to you."
            You say to Innoruuk, "What is that supposed to mean?"
            Innoruuk says to you, "While I owe a debt not just to you but to the other members of the Celestial Order, it isn't as if your motives were entirely altruistic. I would still be wandering around the forest as a babbling fool if they didn't NEED me. Don't think I'm not aware of the circumstances of my return."
            You say to Innoruuk, "How will I get the seal, then?"
            Innoruuk says to you, "You can find it. I've placed it not far from here, but you'll have to get it on your own. And while I will not strike you down, I made no such promise about my minions. If you want it, you'll have to find your way to it."
            You say to Innoruuk, "How is THAT helpful?"
            Innoruuk says to you, "It's how things are. You're free to go if you don't like it. In any case, either find the seal or leave my plane. We are on even ground now, and I tire of your presence."
            You say to Innoruuk, "Fine then. I'll find that seal."


            You say, "Hail, Projection of Druzzil Ro"
            Projection of Druzzil Ro says to you, "Quickly, Aradunakhor! We haven't much time, and I cannot keep my presence hidden from him much longer."
            You say to Projection of Druzzil Ro, "Druzzil??"
            Projection of Druzzil Ro says to you, "Yes, we have been keeping an eye on you, as we expected some level of treachery from Innoruuk. Thankfully he has not outright refused to give you his seal, merely blocked your path to its location..."
            You say to Projection of Druzzil Ro, "Do you know where it lies? How am I to reach it?"
            Projection of Druzzil Ro says to you, "What am I the Matron of again? Oh yes..."

            You say to Varig Ro, "I do."
            Varig Ro says to you, "Hmph. Well, I'll finish the casing then. It won't be long."
            You say to Varig Ro, "Thank you, Varig."
            Varig Ro says to you, "Now, remember, you'll need to take this casing and repair the portal yourself. I cannot do it."
            You say to Varig Ro, "Why is that?"
            Varig Ro says to you, "We are still barred from entering the Plane of Innovation. You've proven yourself more than competent in matters such as these, and we will need that expertise once more."
            You say to Varig Ro, "I see. I'll need the blueprints on how to do the work."
            *** You receive Time Portal Repairs ***
            Varig Ro says to you, "And you will have them. Once it is done, let Druzzil know. And before you go, I give you my personal thanks. We could not have done this without you. Mortals will always have a role to play in our cosmos... I think some within the Order forget that."
            You say to Varig Ro, "Thank you. It has been wondrous working alongside you, Forge Lord. May my crafted works bring you pleasure!"

            Druzzil Ro says to you, "I imagine there will still be ramifications for what we did, but you mortals have proven more than capable of dealing with what comes. Perhaps we will need you again one day. In the meantime, please take these as a meager thank you for your help. It could not have been done without you."
