Zhoom: The town is very quiet, <Character>. Maybe too quiet. I don't like it.
Zhoom: Are you prepared to face Sek-Duat XV?
Loads Zhoom as Guest A
Zhoom: The town was more empty than usual. Do you think the villagers heard that we were coming for Sek-Duat XV?
<Character>: I'm not sure what's going on but if Sek-Duat XV has the Orb of Light then we had better be prepared for anything.
<Character>: I can't wait to see the look on his... mask, I guess... when he finds out that we are BOTH with the rebels.
Zhoom: The rebels should be safe. I had only caught about 90 of them for him when he decided to betray me.
Zhoom: It doesn't have the 100 that he needs to being Sek-Duat The First back from the dead.
<Character>: That was the second biggest mistake that he ever made.
Zhoom: What was the first?
<Character>: Making me mad.
Fight monsters along the way to the end of the tomb
Sek-Duat XV: You two should be DEAD!
<Character>: We ARE! We've come back from the grave to haunt you for your misdeeds! OOOOoooOOoooOOooo!
Zhoom: Don't be silly.
<Character>: You're not fun at all.
<Character>: Sek-Duat, we know all about your plans and we've come to stop you!
Zhoom: We know that you were paying me to round up 100 rebels so you could sacrifice use their life force!
<Character>: We ALSO know that you want to use the Orb of Light to power the yag spell to bring Sek-Duat The First back to life!
<Character>: On a side note, it's kind of creepy how you're obsessed with your great and powerful ancestor.
Sek-Duat XV: Well I guess you've got me all figured out...
Sek-Duat XV: Except that you're entirely wrong.
Sek-Duat XV: I'm not trying tobring my great and powerful ancestor back from the dead...
Sek-Duat XV: I AM SEK-DUAT THE FIRST!
<Character>: WOW! YOu are OLD! I mean REALLY REALLY OLD!
Sek-Duat XV: I'm older than either of you could imagine. I have been the ruler of THe Sandsea for nearly 1500 years!
Sek-Duat XV: During my first reign as Sek-Duat I realized that none of my children had the mind or will of an emperor.
Sek-Duat XV: I began searching the lands of Lore for the secrets to eternal life. I found that I could unlock the secrets of the Orb of Light...
Sek-Duat XV: ...then I could transform myself ito a Lich, an undead sorceror, blessed with eternal life but cursed with eternal undeath.
Sek-Duat XV: I have used its power to sustain myself for these last 1500 years, but once I became a Lich I realized my mistake.
Sek-Duat XV: As a Lich I could never know the pleasures of the living, only eternal life and eternal unrest. I yearned to be alive again.
Sek-Duat XV: I kept searching for the true key to eternal life and I found it! Around 1200 years ago I have the spell to the Yaga sisters for safe keeping.
Sek-Duat XV: As we agreed, they sent their outcast sister to live here in the sands with the spell in her care, so that I could keep watch over it.
Sek-Duat XV: Each time I took my own place as the new emperor, I was a little more cruel.
Sek-Duat XV: I knew that if I squeeed these feeble peasants hard enough, that they would eventually rebel...
Sek-Duat XV: ... And that would give me the 100 enemies that I needed to return life to this undead shell!
Sek-Duat XV: I'm only telling you this so that you can understand the truw power that you face, if you choose to battle me.
Sek-Duat XV: But I never expected you to get this far so I will give you the choice. Join me and I will grant you everlasting as my undying generals.
Sek-Duat XV: Make your choice.
Sek-Duat XV: I didn't really think that you'd fall for that but I had to try.
Sek-Duat XV: Come then, children. Let me show you the kind of pain that I have learned to deliver through the ages.
<Character>: He... He just vanished. Does that mean that we destroyed him?
Zhoom: No, a Lich cannot be disposed of so easily. He will return. He is still emperor of these lands. The people will still see him that way.
<Character>: So the rebels have a lot more work to do. At least he will have most of his power without the Orb of Light.
Zhoom: What will you do with the Orb?
<Character>: I was lucky to beat Sepulchure to this one, but I still have to beat him to the rest. I can't watch them all while I'm finding the missing ones.
<Character>: I think that you would be a safe person to leave it with, if you wouldn't mind keeping an eye on it.
Zhoom: After all we've been through, you would trust me with the Orb of Light? Aren't you worried that Sepulchure will just buy it from me?
<Character>: No. I consider you a friend now, and I understand your code of honor. If I trust you with the Orb...
<Character>: ...then you will do everything in your power to keep it safe. I can't think of anyone I would trust more with the fate of Lore.
Zhoom: Thank you <Character>. I consider you as a friend, too. I will guard the Orb with my life.
Zhoom: I plan to stay here and help the rebels. Sek-Duat still owes me a LOT of gold. If you ever need me, you know where to find me.
Zhoom: It was amazing fighting by your side. It feels good to fight for something that I believe in. Thank you for teaching me that.
<Character>: If the rebels ever need a hand, you can call on me too. Thanks for everything Zhoom.
