Zhoom: <Character>, I have had reports of resistance activity out in the dunes. If these reports are right then they are up to something.
Zhoom: If I am lucky I can capture a large number of these rebels at once. I'm going to have to move fast.
Zhoom: That is why I need you to stay behind for this one <Character>. I move faster when I am alone.
Zhoom: You have earned some free time anyway. If you haven't had a chance to talk around town, now is the time.
Zhoom: Maybe you should spend some time at the Oasis Inn. Remember to keep your eyes open for rebel activity.
Explore the Inn until you reach the end...
Sha'Rae: Thanks for the flower <Character>. You know how I love them. I haven't seen you in so long! How have you been?
<Character>: Um... Ho. *whispers* have we met?
Sha'Rae: *whispers* Of course we haven't met. My father said that you were able to be trusted. He didn't mention that you were slow.
<Character>: Kasuf is your father? He took a bigger risk that I thought, risking himself AND his daughter. He must be really...
<Character>: HEY! I'm not slow!
Sha'Rae: Are you sure? It took you that long to realize that I called you slow.
<Character>: We really don't have time for this. Zhoom could be back at any minute and I can't afford to let him catch me with you.
Sha'Rae: You don't need to worry about that. The resistance activity in the dunes is a distraction.
<Character>: You mean the rebels set all that up, just so it would be safe to meet?
Sha'Rae: Yes. We won't get a second shot at taking down Sek-Duat XV, and you are our best hope of doing that.
Sha'Rae: Several very brave rebels have risked their very lives so we could meet safely, so let's not waste time. I understand that you want the Orb of Light.
<Character>: Yes. Your father told me that you know something about it.
Sha'Rae: I do. I've studied the orb for several years in secret. I've read every legends and pieced together some of its history.
Sha'Rae: I'm fairly sure that the Orb of Light is responsible for the Sek-Duat dynasty. Emperor Sek-Duat The First got his hands on it...
Sha'Rae: ... and he used its power to take control of the Sandsea.
Sha'Rae: One history that I read said that after Sek-Duat The First took power he came increasingly paranoid.
Sha'Rae: He had several children but didn't trust any of them. He thought that all his heirs were after his power and he felt that none of them were worthy.
Sha'Rae: I doubt that a man like that would have trusted anyone with the source of his power. He probably died before telling anyone where he hid it.
<Character>: He would have kept it close. That would mean that the Orb of Light is still is his palace somewhere.
Sha'Rae: I thought the exact same thing. I take back what I said about you being slow.
<Character>: So I need to get into the palace and find the orb. Any ideas?
Sha'Rae: Sek-Duat XV already knows that you're working with Zhoom to catch the rebels. You already in his good graces.
Sha'Rae: But you're going to need to really impress him to get an invite to the palace. I think I know just the thing...
Sha'Rae: ...you have to defeat my mummy.
<Character>: I saved your dad, now you want me to fight your mom? You must have had a weird childhood.
Sha'Rae: *blink blink*
Sha'Rae: I take back taking back saying you were slow.
Sha'Rae: I said my MUMMY! I unearthed it when I was researching the Sek-Duat dynasty. I was in their family tomb looking for clues to the orb...
Sha'Rae: ... then I unearthed my discovery. It's a colossal beast, an undead mummified dragon! I unleashed it on the living world.
Sha'Rae: Now it just sits in the tomb and destroys anyone who gets too close. This beast is a thorn in Sek-Duat's side.
Sha'Rae: It seems like he's not comfortable with the idea of a giant mummy dragon walking around in his ancestor's tomb.
<Character>: AH! So if I defeat your mummified dragon then Sek-Duat XV will be impressed with me and invite to the palace.
Sha'Rae: That's what I hope, anyway. Once you have an invite to the palace you can come and go as you please... unless Sek-Duat XV kills you.
<Character>: That's a comforting thought.
Sha'Rae: You have the ability to get closer to Sek-Duat than any of the rebels every will, and with you at his side... we will have the advantage.
Sha'Rae: You will be able to foil his plans... get access to palace secrets... who knows what else?! Not to mention you will be able to look for your Orb.
Sha'Rae: You will find the mummified dragon in the Dynasty Tomb. Now, get out of here before you're discovered!
Sha'Rae: Oh, and watch your back. Some of the guys in the Inn haven't taken their eyes off you since you came in here.
Sha'Rae: Good luck <Character>, we're all counting on you. The future of the resistance is in your hands.
You fight 3 Desert Thugs...
<Character>: Who are you guys? What do you want from me?
Desert Thug: You're not the only one looking for the Orb of Light, <Character>.
<Character>: What did you say? How did you... ?
Desert Thug: Prince Drakath has put a bounty on your head, hero... and we plan to collect it!
You fight another Desert Thug...
