Dialogue[edit]

Start Quest
Magan

I was once an Imperial Archon, a champion of the Architects. When my commander told us we had to cleanse vile corruption from this region, I thought we'd be fighting the Maze.

As we approached Aurelian, the commander told us the monks had made contact with The Ones Who Came Before. He said that there could be no mercy, that only death could cleanse their souls.

I believed him. I've seen the ghost plagues and fought in the Maze. I expected the monks to be warped, slavering cultists, and I was ready to cut them down. I didn't expect to see tears.

Player

What do you mean?

Magan

The monks in the Codex Halls were only initiates, little more than children. They knew nothing of the Precursors or the work being done below. But Creed told us to kill every living thing.

Player

You killed innocent people?

Magan

Creed saw I had no stomach for the slaughter and ordered me to guard the storerooms. But the screams ... the smell of blood ... I cast down my shield and fled.

That's the only reason I'm still alive. Aurelian collapsed and the ruins were consumed by shadows. No one else escaped. Everyone—monks, my brothers—everyone died in the darkness.

Omen

Something's missing. We've seen the Archon Commander's final battle. He never reached the inner sanctum. If he didn't trigger the Gloom collapse, who did? We still need a connection.

Player

Magan, do you know anything about the collapse?

Magan

I fled before it happened. I only witnessed it from afar. But maybe...

Player

What is it?

Magan

The storerooms in Aurelian were filled with Godsblood, arcanic fuel. The monks had a massive stockpile—they must have needed it for something.

The monks were getting Godsblood from the largest mine here in the Highlands—what the Shrikes call the Bloodworks. Perhaps there's a clue there, something to reveal the path forward.

Player

It's worth a try. Thank you.

Magan

I won't ask you for forgiveness. I don't deserve it. Just know that Archon Magan died in Aurelian. What life I have left, I'll give to the people here. Good luck.

Omen

You need a connection. Look for Avala. She's a Seeker who's been doing field research on the Gloom nearby. Be warned, she's... enthusiastic.


Clear Phase 1
Seeker Avala

Pardon me, have you seen a smoky wurm? About so big from maw to tail? It was here a moment ago, and it slipped away before I could determine if it was venomous.

Player

What?

Seeker Avala

Oh! Wayfinder! Have you come to help me with my work? Has my— um, LORD Halar realized how important field research is?

Player

Omen sent me.

Seeker Avala

She did? She did! Oh lovely! I've so many experiments for us to try together. Tell me—how are you with needles? Oh, and we'll need something for you to bite down on, certainly.

Player

Not now. I need a connection to the Bloodworks.

Seeker Avala

I suppose I can help with that. The Shrikes have been going in and out of the Bloodworks for a while. I think they're using some sort of ore shard to form a connection?

Search the rubble piles around the Bloodworks. Should be easy to find one—just look for a shard absolutely dripping in Godsblood!

Have fun with the Shrikes. Be careful in there! Now where was that wurm...


Clear Phase 2

Nothing here but rocks. Better keep looking.


Clear Phase 3

Well, that's a trash heap. The search continues.


Clear Phase 4

Rags and rot. Moving on...


Clear Phase 5
Omen

Take that sliver of ore. I can feel the resonance of Godsblood on it. Avala can use this to forge a connection for you.


Clear Quest
Seeker Avala

Maybe if I adjust the ratio of Shadow to Chaos... I need some more data. I have to get into the Gloom somehow...

Player

Um, hello? I found the shard.

Seeker Avala

Oh! Hi! Shard! Let me just amplify the energies and bind it to you and—there we are, connection! Are you sure I can't convince you to help with a quick experiment or two? Only a few needles.

Player

I'm afraid not...
