Dialogue[edit]

Start Quest
Curator

Initiate, attend me! There are invaders in the Codex Halls. We must act swiftly to recover our most vital research and secure the archives.

Player

Who are you?

Curator

I am the Curator of Elemental Studies and your superior in the Codex, INITIATE. It is not your place to question my orders… just to obey them.

Shadow is the essence of darkness and death, and one of the prime elements of the Gloom. We knew the Silver Codex were working with it, but this is a chance to learn more.

Omen

This remnant perceives you as a Codex monk. This may be an invaluable opportunity to gain access to the research that was done here. Play along for now.

Curator

That's better. Our sages are conducting elemental research within the Substrata. I don't know if they've survived this attack, but I fear the worst. You must recover their work and bring it to me.

Player

The Substrata?

Curator

Yes, Initiate. Some of our most important research is conducted within the substrata of elemental energies. You may have heard it called ‘The Gloom,' but that's an ignorant generalization.

Sister Karana is working with the element of Shadow in the Codex Halls. You must recover the pages of her Umbral Compendium; it is vital to our work.

But you will not find Karana in the Halls as you know them, Initiate. She is in the shadow shaped by Shadow—a substrata of the Gloom. The sages will show you the way. Now go!

Omen

This is fascinating. They were experimenting with Lost Zones even then! You should be able to find the pages by using a Shadow Imbuement to enter the Codex Halls.

Shadow is the essence of darkness and death, and one of the prime elements of the Gloom. We knew the Silver Codex were working with it, but this is a chance to learn more.


Clear Phase 1
Curator

You've collected enough pages to restore the Umbral Compendium! Find me in the Undercroft.

Curator

You are too slow, Initiate! But… yes… you have succeeded. Sister Karana may be dead, but we have her Umbral Compendium in the Archives, ready for when the First Scribe begins the great work.

Perhaps I misjudged you, Initiate. Perhaps you will prove worthy of immortality. Return soon—I will have more work for you once I have realigned the Archives.

Omen

This... this challenges Astar's basic elemental principles! I need to share this with Lord Halar. But... Shadow is only part of the equation. We need the rest of this research.
