Battleon has a School?!?
Location: Battleon » Robina's Shop » Truphma Saga » 1: Introductions » Battleon Has A School?!?
«Scene: A library, where Master Archanius sits at a desk in front of bookshelves.»
Master Archanius: Ahhhhh, «You», you've come! I trust your journey from Lore went well. You look as if you are in one piece, at least.
Master Archanius: I had been worried that you wouldn't make it. Travel to my library is a precarious and oftentimes... misdirected adventure.
Master Archanius: I can't tell you how many times the last person had to be redirected to get here. Poor guy...
«You»: Traveling via your portal wasn't a basket of roses. But... redirected, sir?
Master Archanius: Oh yes, I believe he said that appearing on his homeworld 2000 years ago was something of a rude awakening. He complained about being dropped in the middle of a beast war of some kind.
Master Archanius: Anyway, I am Master Archanius Presbyter, but you may address me using my first name. I need this letter taken to my apprentice, Eukara Vox.
Master Archanius: It is vitally important that you get this to her as soon as possible. Much is at stake.
«You»: Master Archanius, Eukara Vox?
Master Archanius: Yes, yes, Eukara Vox. You have no idea who I am talking about?
«You»: Um, no, not really.
Master Archanius: Interesting. Seems my apprentice has gotten better at blending in. She's a teacher on Lore... I believe the town is Battleon. Been there for a couple of years at least--
«You»: Teacher? In Battleon? We... have a school in Battleon?
Master Archanius: Hmmm, seems she has done a better job than she intended... Anyway, she needs this letter and needs it now.
«You»: Yes, sir. Now to find the school that I had no idea existed...
«A portal opens behinds you and takes you away. The scene then zooms in on Archanius.»
Master Archanius: Hmmmmmmm...........
«Scene: Greenguard Forest»
«You»: You know, I am starting wonder about my sanity. I keep coming across the strangest people.
«You»: And... Seriously? We have a school?!
«You»: I mean, I always wondered where all the children were in Battleon, but... how did I miss a school?
«You»: Figures. It doesn't pay to be the messenger...
Forest Demon: Give me the letter!
«You»: What? What letter? I have no idea what you are talking about.
Forest Demon: Lies, Lorian. You just said not a few minutes ago that it didn't pay to be the messenger.
«You»: Ahhh, you heard that, did you? Well, maybe I have the message in my head.
Forest Demon: I doubt that, since I can see the letter.
«You»: Oh, this? This isn't a letter... It's... my grocery list. Let's see, 4 healing potions, 2 mana potions, food for my pet, 1 dozen left socks...
Forest Demon: .............
«You»: Not buying it, eh?
Forest Demon: No.
«You»: Aria! Just the young lady I needed to see. You were a kid once, right?
Aria: ... I would hope so!
«You»: Well, yes. Anyway, is it true Battleon has a school?
Aria: Of course it does! Where do you think the kids are all day long? Doing chores or fighting baby monsters?
«You»: Well... Actually, yes. That's kind of exactly what I thought.
Aria: *thought: Do all adventurers have a one-track mind?*
Aria: Anyway, the school is on the edge of the forest. It's a one room schoolhouse and class is in session, so please do not interrupt unless it is vitally important.
«You»: Well, it is actually. I have to deliver a letter.
Aria: Since when did you become a postman?
«You»: Since I was teleported to an unknown region of space, and-
«Scene: At the edge of the Forest, outside of the schoolhouse»
«You»: Well, look at that. There IS a school here!
«Red, blinking eyes are shown in the bushes.»
«Scene: Inside the schoolhouse, where Eukara is teaching at the board and five children sit at desks, listening.»
???: Yesterday, we began discussing a very big moment in our history. We discussed Ashenvale and the first major victory in the Great Fire War.
???: The people of Lore united to fight this first battle, proving that we were a force to be reckoned with. What was the significance of Moonra?
Billy: Moonra was where the dragon was slain. It was a close battle, as we defeated the forces of Drakonnan just in time.
???: Very good. Yes, this dragon led a group of fire creatures in the attack and defeating him was key in the progression of the war.
???: It gave us confidence and helped us move forward as Drakonnan's forces bore down on us, although he was still far from done with us. Who can recall the dungeon.
Susy: Shortly after Moonra, our forces entered a dungeon and were forced to battle countless fire monsters.
Susy: There was fear that all wouldn't make it out alive. But, in the end, we discovered the Flame Guardian armor that Yulgar's ancestor created. That helped our side greatly.
???: I am really impressed. I say, if I get this much attention during the next session, extra playtime for everyone!
???: Alright, if no one has any questions, let's continue on to one of Darkonnan's greatest moves against us. A mysterious display of lights and static drew our attention to the Eastern Hills.
???: We headed there, confident and were met with an enormous fire monster army. They were guarding an odd chasm--
«You»: Excuse me, ma'am?
???: Oh look, an Adventurer, boys and girls. Adventurer, since you are interrupting our lesson, tell me you name and inform my students of the information I was about to relay to them.
«You»: My apologies ma'am, but...
???: Name and what happened next.
«You»: *sigh* My name is «You».

«If you answer incorrectly, the following dialogue occurs:»
???: What ACTUALLY happened was that Drakonnan summoned a brood of Plasma Dragons to aid him in his efforts at destroying everything.
«Dialogue continues below.»
«You»: As much as I would love to continue participating in your lesson, I need to talk to a woman named Eukara Vox. I presume that is you.
Eukara Vox: That is correct. I am Eukara Vox. Why would an Adventurer seek me out?
«You»: Well, I have this let--
«The wall on the right breaks.»
«You»: Of course. WHY would this continue any other way? You monsters never learn, so it's time to take you to school!
Eukara Vox: So THIS is your letter? Hmmmm...
Eukara Vox: What is this about, «You»?
«You»: I don't know, Ms. Vox. All Master Archanius said is it is of utmost importance.
Eukara Vox: Master Archanius? You spoke to my mentor?
«You»: If that is what he is to you, then yes, I spoke to your mentor. Either way, he said you must have this letter. He said "much is at stake."
«You»: And, um, did you notice something strange about the monsters?
Eukara Vox: No...
«You»: Ms. Vox?
Eukara Vox: Thank you. You went through much to get this to me. Let me reward you for your efforts.
