Location: Battleon » Robina's Shop » Truphma Saga » 7: Isles of Drudgery

Notes
  • There are several differences in dialogue based on your alignment. The dialogue color is highlighted in various colors to indicate so.
    • Good (+6) = Green
    • Neutral (+5 to -5) = Blue
    • Evil (-6) = Purple
  • Repeated monsters in monster lists represent double the chance of encountering them.

    «Scene: Truphma Outpost. The land is slowly dulling under the effects of the Truphma.»

    (Thought) «You»: The note said to meet the changeling rebel here.

    (Thought) «You»: The area is infected worse than I thought. The last time I raided this camp, I thought I had beaten them back.
    (Thought) «You»: It seems the Truphma have a foothold here. When I was here beore, trying to push them back, the area was still vibrant.
    (Thought) «You»: Whatever he wants, it better be good. Trying to figure out how I fit into this whole thing is complicated enough without a rogue invader tugging at my sleeve.

    «The changeling appears from the bushes.»

    Changeling: «You», you have come! I am afraid we will have to tread carefully. They know of me. I cannot keep this up much longer.
    «You»: Keep what up?
    Changeling: Since we last met, you gave me so much hope that Xov and the Truphma can be defeated. Those that the Truphma take successfully, hope is stolen from them.
    Changeling: Hope, according to the Truphma, is imagined, unpredictable and creative in nature. Hope gives you freedom.

      Good Alignment

      «You»: So, without hope, everyone is easily enslaved. Despicable.
      Changeling: Exactly. Your help strengthened my hope. You have given me a great freedom and they cannot take me any longer. I am now their enemy, much like you.
      «You»: What will they do to you if you are caught?
      Changeling: They will kill me.
      «You»: I can't let that happen!
      Changeling: I have the power to resist. Those who are like me are killed to prevent trouble. I escaped. I still live. I am a threat.
      «You»: You must be protected!
      Changeling: Nay, «You». If I must die to help you, then I will gladly accept. Your world should not join mine in destruction.
      «You»: Trust me, your actions will not be in vain.
      Changeling: I know they will not be. You mean more to your world than you may realize.
      «You»: Together, we will stop Xov! I have been Chosen for a reason and I will not let her run rampant and take everything away from me and my people.
      «You»: She will never destroy my world!
      Changeling: *smiles* Good. Now that we have that out of the way, I know you know your way around this place, for I have seen your handiwork. But, as you can see, they recover very well.
      «You»: These camps are everywhere, on every continent... but, they're all the same. I've gotten to know them well.
      Changeling: Yes, they are like a disease, slowly infecting the world, so that over time, less and less of your home is free.
      «You»: It's effective, and we can see it works in front of our eyes. How can I, and my fellow Guardians and Adventurers, combat this plague?
      «You»: No matter how many times I fight them, they just keep coming. I want them gone now, and Lore safe from them!


      Neutral Alignment

      «You»: Slavery is best served without hope.
      Changeling: Exactly. Your help strengthened my hope. You have given me a great freedom and they cannot take me any longer. I am now their enemy, much like you.
      «You»: What will they do to you if you are caught?
      Changeling: They will kill me.
      «You»: That is not acceptable.
      Changeling: I have the power to resist. Those who are like me are killed to prevent trouble. I escaped. I still live. I am a threat.
      «You»: Justice must be served here. Your survival means much to the future of yours and my people.
      Changeling: Nay, «You». If I must die to help you, then I will gladly accept. Your world should not join mine in destruction.
      «You»: Trust me, your actions will not be in vain.
      Changeling: I know they will not be. You mean more to your world than you may realize.
      «You»: Whether I am important or not, Xov and her plans cannot succeed.
      «You»: We must do whatever is necessary to stop her.
      Changeling: *smiles* Good. Now that we have that out of the way, I know you know your way around this place, for I have seen your handiwork. But, as you can see, they recover very well.
      «You»: The camps are spread out over Lore well enough to make it hard to keep up. I do what I can.
      Changeling: Yes, they are like a disease, slowly infecting the world, so that over time, less and less of your home is free.
      «You»: The effectiveness of this plague is worrisome. I am not sure how we are going to defeat Xov and these camps. What can we do?
      «You»: No matter how many times I fight them, they just keep coming. I want them gone now, and Lore safe from them!


      Evil Alignment

      «You»: Well, seems the Truphma are actually intelligent and not a civilization of drones. Good to know. Good to know... Anyway, no hope equals slavery. Continue.
      Changeling: Exactly. Your help strengthened my hope. You have given me a great freedom and they cannot take me any longer. I am now their enemy, much like you.
      «You»: What will they do to you if you are caught? I mean, you have pretty much spit in their eyes regarding their drive and beliefs.
      Changeling: They will kill me.
      «You»: Well, what did you expect? You are a hindrance to them. Surely you understand that death is what betrayal earns?
      Changeling: I have the power to resist. Those who are like me are killed to prevent trouble. I escaped. I still live. I am a threat.
      (simultaneously) «You»: Your survival is necessary...
      (simultaneously) (Thought) «You»: You are very necessary. Necessary to me for getting what I want. I will help you, but because you are my ticket...
      Changeling: Nay, «You». If I must die to help you, then I will gladly accept. Your world should not join mine in destruction.
      «You»: Trust me, your actions will not be in vain.
      Changeling: I know they will not be. You mean more to your world than you may realize.
      «You»: Stop Xov... yes, that will be necessary. There is more to me than you may realize, that everyone may realize...
      «You»: And she'll soon find out just what makes me who I am. And then, everyone will know.
      Changeling: *smiles* Good. Now that we have that out of the way, I know you know your way around this place, for I have seen your handiwork. But, as you can see, they recover very well.
      «You»: They're highly annoying... yet, strategically placed. Xov shows intelligence. And the ability to replenish forces so rapidly is something to be admired.
      Changeling: Yes, they are like a disease, slowly infecting the world, so that over time, less and less of your home is free.
      «You»: The effectiveness is most interesting. There has to be some mechanism, some... secret to their success.
      «You»: I am sure you can tell me, right? Knowing such information would be very useful to me.


    Changeling: The key to the camps are the Central Engines. There is one building in every camp that houses the communication and transport mechanism--

    «The changeling looks to his right, off the scene, then quickly looks back at you.»

    Changeling: They've found me.

    «Two Truphma enter, pointing their rusty knives at you and the changeling.»

    Truphma: The One and The Error. We must kill them.Changeling: Heh, I am The Error. We don't have much time. You need to seek out the central engine and destroy it. By doing this--

    «More Truphma accompanied with a Bored Buzzer enter the scene.»

    Truphma: Do not fail Xov. Kill them!

    «You»: Not today. Eat my wrath, Truphma. You shall pay for all your injustices!
    «You»: The balance must be restored and you are blocking that. Prepare for your defeat.
    «You»: If you all would just STOP interrupting, I would learn what I need to know!
      2 BATTLES (Full Heal after 2nd Battle)
      Refer to Monster List above
    «Scratches and bruises can be seen on the changeling post-battle...»

    Changeling: «You», by destroying it, you will--

    «Even more Truphma, this time accompanied with a Dull Woodland Pack enter the scene.»

    Truphma: Do not let The One succeed. The Error has defied Xov. The One must not succeed. Kill them!
      2 BATTLES (Full Heal after 2nd Battle)
      Refer to Monster List above
    «With all the battle injuries, the changeling is unable to stand and can only support himself using his hand.»

    «You»: Friend? Friend? Please answer me!
    «You»: Your injuries are deep. Please, speak to me so I know you are okay.
    «You»: Just great. Hey, move or something to let me know you are alive. I need to know what comes next!

    «The changeling collapses to the ground...»

    «You»: Elemental lords... they just keep coming to attack and eliminate us. I cannot leave you, Friend. You deserve more than recapture...
    «You»: I will stand my ground, protecting you while I fight those who continue to come.
    «You»: Oh, just great. You're unconscious, the most important bit of information yet to be spoken so I can better prepare my plan.
    «You»: The Truphma continue to come, not that I am that upset. More to fight. But now I have you as a burden.


    «Eukara's portal fades into the scene.»

    «You»: For the first time ever, I'm happy to see you. He needs healing.
    Portal: Eukara Vox waits. She sends this message: 'Blend, «You».'

    «Eukara's portal moves slightly to the right, lifting the changeling's body up and taking him along with it, as it fades away from the scene.»

    «You»: Why does it bother me that Portal can actually speak with sentience?
      2 BATTLES (Full Heal after 2nd Battle)
      Refer to Monster List above
    «You»: I'll have to wear the enemy's cloak, but Ms. Vox did say to blend.
    «You»: Donning the enemy's lack of decor will serve me well. I will do as Ms. Vox instructed.
    «You»: Hehehehe... blend. I'll relish this. The things I'll learn will greatly help in my plans. Vox will never know what hit her. And neither will anyone else.

    «You switch into a Truphma Suit before proceeding further into the camp.»«You»: This place is even more depressing once inside. How do I find the central engine if everything looks the same? Okay, I need to think like a Truphma. This will be soooo much fun.

    «As you approach a tent, a Truphma exits from it and halts you.»

    Truphma: You there, Truphma soldier, where should you be?
    «You»: I am a transfer.
    Truphma: Transferred? Come with me.

    «Scene: Dull Halls. A Hybee, Ramleon and Two-Bear are chained to pillars here. Fortunately they are not dull yet!»

    Truphma: You are on Conforming Duty.
    «You»: Conforming Duty?
    Truphma: Ah, new recruit. Yes. You will defeat them until they are broken.

    «Pause»

    «You»: Of course. I will do as you instruct.
    Truphma: Good.

    «The Truphma leaves the scene.»

      Good Alignment

      «You»: I fight these all the time. Yet, this feels so wrong. So, so very wrong.
    • Select a beast to conform!

      «Depending on which beast you select, you fight the corresponding one as shown below. You can choose to Full Heal once per creature. If you try to Full Heal more than once, you get the message "You've already used a full heal while Conforming this creature!"»
      «The monster you battled gets slightly duller.»

      «You»: This is what they do. Until broken... I have... I have to fight it again...

        1 BATTLE (Stage 2)
        Same as above

      «The monster you chose to battle gets even duller now.»

      «You»: I've beaten the creature twice and it's not done. I... I can't do this again. What if the third time isn't enough? And my head hurts.
      «You»: It feels like the air has grown heavy and pushes against me as the creature weakens. Like I'm being crushed. This poor creature wavers. It can feel this, too.

      «The Truphma returns to check on your progress.»

      Truphma: Have you not finished? Perhaps one more round will work. See to it.

      «The Truphma leaves the scene again.»

      «You»: Everything hurts - my heart, my head, my spirit. I feel so sick. And now, the air throbs with some unknown force I cannot comprehend.
      «You»: Would you understand that I never wanted to do this? Would you understand if I said I was sorry?

        1 BATTLE (Stage 3)
        Same as above

        Full Heal

      «With the final battle over, the monster you selected has been fully conformed.»

      «You»: This is... This is horrid. I feel as if I am stained forever. I feel so horrible. Now I know how they do it. But if this is how they change creatures...
      «You»: What about people? I have to find the central engine!
    • Look for Central Engine! - Continues dialogue below
    • Conform the other beasts! (+Evil on your moral compass) - Same 3 stage battle as above


      Neutral Alignment

      «You»: I'm doing this only because it is the key to learning how to defeat the Truphma. I do not like this, though.
    • Select a beast to conform!

      «Depending on which beast you select, you fight the corresponding one as shown below. You can choose to Full Heal once per creature. If you try to Full Heal more than once, you get the message "You've already used a full heal while Conforming this creature!"»
      «The monster you battled gets slightly duller.»

      «You»: So, this is what happens. The Truphma, for whatever reason they do this, are wrong.

        1 BATTLE (Stage 2)
        Same as above

      «The monster you chose to battle gets even duller now.»

      «You»: Another fight and it's not fallen. I question the method to this madness. Is this really the way to convert worlds to your philosophy?
      «You»: My head hurts. It feels like the air has grown heavy and pushes against me as the creature weakens. Like I'm being crushed. This poor creature wavers. It can feel this, too.

      «The Truphma returns to check on your progress.»

      Truphma: Have you not finished? Perhaps one more round will work. See to it. I want you to really explore the space. I gotta have more conforming!
      Truphma: Guess what. I gotta fever, and the only prescription... is more conforming!

      «The Truphma leaves the scene again.»

      «You»: The weight of all this is far reaching. The air throbs with some unknown force that is affecting the monster. This is wrong, I am sorry, creature, for what I am about to do.

        1 BATTLE (Stage 3)
        Same as above

        Full Heal

      «With the final battle over, the monster you selected has been fully conformed.»

      «You»: This process is the most despicable actions I can think of. This isn't fixing the world, this is killing it. If monsters are changed with this technique, then so are people.
      «You»: This stops. I have to find the central engine.
    • Look for Central Engine! - Continues dialogue below
    • Conform the other beasts! (+Evil on your moral compass) - Same 3 stage battle as above


      Evil Alignment

      «You»: Oh... Ooooh hohoho, jackpot. Not only do I get to defeat you miserable creatures, but I get to do it over and over and over until I break you! And learn so much in the process.
    • Select a beast to conform!

      «Depending on which beast you select, you fight the corresponding one as shown below. You can choose to Full Heal once per creature. If you try to Full Heal more than once, you get the message "You've already used a full heal while Conforming this creature!"»
      «The monster you battled gets slightly duller.»

      «You»: So... This is how you do it. I wonder how many times it takes to completely break this creature. Two? Three?
      «You»: Either way, this has just gotten more interesting. Shame you cannot enjoy the very process you employ, dear Truphma.

        1 BATTLE (Stage 2)
        Same as above

      «The monster you chose to battle gets even duller now.»

      «You»: Phew, two fights and my blood is definitely pumping. I see you're still not completely broken, monster. No problem, I can do this all day.
      «You»: And I can feel the air has changed with your weakening. Perhaps... I'm closer to my answers. Even though the pressure in my head aches, I'll finish you with pleasure.

      «The Truphma returns to check on your progress.»

      Truphma: Have you not finished? Perhaps one more round will work. See to it.

      «The Truphma leaves the scene again.»

      «You»: One more time? One more time to excuse my desire to dominate everything that breathes. One more time to watch the process of Conforming.
      «You»: One more chance to learn how to take what I want. And you can't do a thing about it, can you, monster? Feel that in the air, monster? That is your doom calling!

        1 BATTLE (Stage 3)
        Same as above

        Full Heal

      «With the final battle over, the monster you selected has been fully conformed.»

      «You»: There we go. Mission accomplished. You are now a slave, to do the bidding of he or she with the most power.
      «You»: I have to find this central engine. I have to find this source of power. Oh, the things that could be done with it...
    • Look for Central Engine! - Continues dialogue below
    • Conform the other beasts! (+Evil on your moral compass) - Same 3 stage battle as above


    Do you see the CE?
    Can you find the Central Engine before being discovered?
    Difficulty: 91
    Stat Used: Luck
      «If you fail the roll, you get a message "Oops, wrong building! And it looks like it's occupied!" and go through battles as shown.»

      1 BATTLE (Full Heal after Battle)

      «Difficulty of roll decreases by 10 and you re-roll.»
    «If you succeed the roll, you get a message "This has to be the building. The weird power I felt in the Conforming is felt here".»

    «Scene: Sophisticated Laboratory. A dull figure can be seen on a screen.»

    General: Report.
    Truphma: Though The One has caused us trouble, we have rebuilt and grown. The One will learn. We are the inevitable cure for the plague that stunts this world.
    General: Of course. Xov will be satisfied with this report. What of reinforcements?
    Outpost Master: The port is functional. Though we continue to Conform those we capture, this world is hardy and it takes twice as long to complete the process than other worlds.
    Outpost Master: Send more, so we can expand our reach.
    General: Inform me of when you are ready and I will make sure you get the citizens you need through the port.

    «You confront the Truphma, shedding your disguise.»

    «You»: Not on my watch, you horrible monster! You are done!
    «You»: The enslavement will end now.
    «You»: Shame you are standing here, since you are in my way.

    «The General turns to face and observe you through the screen.»General: How dare you!

    «You»: You tell Xov, her time is up. I'm coming for her.
    General: Foolish One, you are doomed. You are One, but we are many.

    «You»: How dare I? After what I have seen, how dare you call yourself a cure and an answer. Xov will pay for her crimes.
    General: Foolish One, you are doomed. You are One, but we are many.

    «You»: Let's not be hasty, Truphma. I know your little secret. And I know how Xov feels. Tell Xov, this plague is indeed in need of a cure.
    «You»: I would like to cure this world of its inadequacies. If she wants an ally, she knows how to find me...
    General: You are not one of us, yet you wish to ally? This is highly unusual. I will tell my Queen. She will find you no matter what you can offer her.
    «You»: I await her next move.
