Dialogue

*After destroying the Focus Stone, you have exited Sek-Duat XV's pyramid and are leaving the Sandsea desert at night; you stop to study your hand, which is covered in grime from exploring the pyramid, when you hear footsteps, and a sword is placed by your shoulder; The Rose have you surrounded.*

Yasimi: You!

Yasimi: <Character>!

*The Rose soldier yields their sword, having identified you.*

Yasimi: You were warned not to enter the pyramid!
<Character>: Yes, because it was too "dangerous"! You neglected to mention the magical artifacts you were trying to recover inside!
Yasimi: It's the palace of a Light lich, of course it's full of magical artifacts! Also magical traps! And magical sand and undead guards!
Yasimi: Magical undead guards! The entire thing is a giant pyramid of danger! And yet here you stand, unashamed at the peril you put us all in!

*Magus Hansa now appears, approaching you furiously.*

Magus Hansa: What have you done, <Character>?!
<Character>: I did what I had to.
Magus Hansa: Had to? HAD to? The amount of light magic that was just released...
Magus Hansa: There was a reason why we were being careful inside the pyramid. We needed to secure anything so potentially powerful!
<Character>: Exactly. And now it's released. Neither Sek Duat nor The Rose can use it now.
Magus Hansa: Is that... is that what you really think? Where do you think that magic came from?
Magus Hansa: All that light magic needed to turn the life force of one hundred enemies into a new life for a dead husk?
Magus Hansa: I know not what kind of artifact you tampered with, but that magic must have been connected to Sek Duat himself.
<Character>: And now that power has been released. No one can use it now.
Magus Hansa: I can't believe this. Are you even listening? The magic inside it was his. You just returned it. To Sek Duat!
<Character>: But I...

<Character>: I...
Magus Hansa: I can read your trepidation as clear as day. You know where the lich is. We have to stop him.
<Character>: I don't trust either of you... how do I know what you're telling me is true?

*A bright light interrupts your conversation with Magus Hansa; shortly after, beams of light begin firing upwards somewhere nearby in the Sandsea desert; Magus Hansa's expression turns to one of disapproval.*

Magus Hansa: Are you coming, <Character>? To right your wrongs? Or shall we clean up after your mess, as so many others have done before?

*You glare at Magus Hansa, but follow without responding. You head in the direction of the light beams, fighting various monsters along the way, until you find Sek-Duat XV extracting essence from two Sand Elf Mummies; his captive is also present, covered by a hooded cloak.*

Sek-Duat XV: Ah, my favorite hero.
Sek-Duat XV: It's a pleasant night for a walk, isn't it.
<Character>: You've double crossed me for the last time, Sek Duat!
Sek-Duat XV: Such indignation! I'm hurt. And who is your lovely friend? You must introduce me to such an... appetizing Rose Magus.
Magus Hansa: I'm not another pawn for you to extract life from, vampire. The Rose has come to put an end to you.
Sek-Duat XV: Vampire? I do not steal fluids in the dead of night, slinking through the shadows. I am the Emperor of the Sandsea. I take what is mine.

*Sek-Duat XV removes the hooded cloak from his captive, revealing a frail and aged Zhoom.*

<Character>: Zhoom!
<Character>: But you said he was dead!
Sek-Duat XV: I never, <Character>. Although your Rose friends would have done much, much worse, I'm sure.

*Magus Hansa scowls at Sek-Duat XV.*

<Character>: What have you done to him?!
Sek-Duat XV: I've simply extracted my price for keeping him safe.
Magus Hansa: He must have been unable to draw from his stored magic after being deposed. Which means...
Magus Hansa: ...he resorted to using this one's life to extend his own. He's stolen years of your friend's life away.
Sek-Duat XV: As emperor, they were mine to take.
<Character>: Monster.
Sek-Duat XV: You ally yourself with one who wouldn't have taken years, <Character>. Your Rose would have ended him.
Magus Hansa: You assume too much. Our mission is to prevent the misuse of magic.
Magus Hansa: To stop the abuses that monsters like yourself have heaped upon the innocent people of Lore.
Magus Hansa: I do not kill indiscriminately.
Sek-Duat XV: Oh, my dear, I'm sure you're righteous enough in your idealistic dreams.
Sek-Duat XV: But the ones who came before? Not so picky. Regardless...

*Sek-Duat XV uses his returned power to craft himself a new arm out of light energy.*

Sek-Duat XV: If my life isn't going to be restored, then I shall embrace my undeath. I will burn the life and power out of any whom I deem worthy.
Sek-Duat XV: Starting with my favorite hero.

*Sek-Duat XV blasts Magus Hansa with a ray of light, sending her backwards; he then possesses you, causing you to levitate above the ground and fly forwards, before your dragon appears and stops him; your dragon is now standing between you and Sek-Duat XV, ready to protect you.*

If you have a Dragon Amulet:
<Dragon>: I won't let you hurt my human!

If you don't have a Dragon Amulet:
<Dragon>: *Rumbles erupt from your dragon's throat. You can feel it in your chest. Your dragon sounds angry.*

Sek-Duat XV: And so the dragon appears. Come, I have a special treat for you, little one...
Sek-Duat XV: Just like your hero, you act on impulse. But no matter, you will join each other in eternity soon. Let me borrow some of that fire, small one.
<Character>: No! <Dragon>!!

*Sek-Duat XV reaches out and touches your dragon with his newly crafted arm, draining the color from its body.*

<Character>: <Dragon>! Are you okay?!

*With some of your dragon's powers absorbed, Sek-Duat XV has a new, illuminated form, with dragon's wings and a golden helm.*

Sek-Duat XV: Now this truly befits an Emperor!
Magus Hansa: Just another fly to swat.

If you have a Dragon Amulet:
<Dragon>: I'm fine. That pile of rags can't even begin to stop me. Let me at him!

If you don't have a Dragon Amulet:
<Dragon>: *Rumbles erupt from your dragon's throat, again. You can feel it in your chest. Your dragon sounds very, VERY angry.*

  • Titan Fight
  • Hand-to-Hand!*After your battle with Sek-Duat XV, what's left of his energy appears to form a vortex; the trapped spirits are released from the Sand Elf Mummies, your dragon regains its color, and Zhoom returns to his former healthy, youthful state; Sek-Duat XV has finally been defeated, and you bond with your dragon in celebration.*

    Magus Hansa: So, this is your famous dragon.

    *Your dragon reacts in the only way it knows how, and happily breathes fire at Magus Hansa, leaving small flames in her hair.*

    Magus Hansa: I can sense that it's a lot like you.
    <Character>: Zhoom, how are you feeling?

    <Character>: Are you alright?
    Zhoom: I...

    *Zhoom pauses to reflect on the events that transpired while he was held captive by Sek-Duat XV.*

    Zhoom: Yes, my friend. I haven't felt so... alive in years.
    Zhoom: Thank you, <Character>. And I don't believe I caught your name?
    Magus Hansa: Magus Hansa of The Rose.
    Zhoom: I must thank you as well, although, I cannot extend that thanks to your organization.
    Magus Hansa: I take it the lich was not inaccurate when he mentioned that he saved you from The Rose, then?
    Zhoom: It was not by my choice. However, caught between The Rose and Sek Duat, my attention was split.
    Zhoom: I was plucked away and imprisoned by his magic when he saw his inevitable defeat.
    Zhoom: Had The Rose not interfered, the rebels and I would have only had to worry about a single front.
    Magus Hansa: I understand.
    Magus Hansa: Would you be... amicable to come with me for more thorough questioning?
    Magus Hansa: I would merely like to learn more information about Sek Duat and his pyramid...
    Magus Hansa: ...so that we may safely contain any remaining dangers within.
    <Character>: Zhoom, don't! The Rose has been–
    Magus Hansa: Have I imprisoned you, <Character>? Have I turned you in to Lady Jaania?
    Magus Hansa: Even after your... inexcusable blunder here, have I offended you, somehow?
    Magus Hansa: No. Kidnappings and unjust imprisonment are not part of the world that Lady Jaania envisions.
    Magus Hansa: You would do well to remember that.
    Zhoom: Don't worry, <Character>. I can take care of a few Rose members if things get out of hand.
    Magus Hansa: Unless there's anything else, you're free to go, <Character>. The Rose will stay and secure the area.
    Magus Hansa: We don't need you around to revive another lich.

    *You glance back at Magus Hansa after her remark.*

    <Character>: I...

    *Knowing you cannot defend your actions, you don't say anything more.*

    Magus Hansa: Watch yourself, <Character>.

    *You glance back at Magus Hansa again, before shifting your focus to Zhoom.*

    <Character>: Take care, Zhoom.
    Zhoom: You as well, my friend.

    *Scene fades to black.*

    Magus Hansa: Do you even realize what you've done?!
    <Character>: I did what I had to.
    Magus Hansa: Had to? HAD to? The amount of light magic you released....
    Magus Hansa: For Lore's sake... the vibration of the ley lines had to have been felt all over the world!
    <Character>: Exactly. Released. Now neither the Rose or Sek Duat can use it.
    Magus Hansa: Is that what you think? Where do you think that magic came from?
    Magus Hansa: The amount of magic needed to turn the life force of one hundred enemies into a new life for a dead husk?
    Magus Hansa: Why do you think it was stored in a focus stone? A stone that sat and allowed the magic inside it to reflect and grow...
    <Character>: The power has been released... no one can use it now.
    Magus Hansa: The stone belonged to Sek Duat. The magic inside it was his. You just returned it. Why... why would you do that!
    <Character>: But... I...
    Magus Hansa: ...you know where he is. We have to stop him!
    <Character>: I don't trust either of you... how do I know what you're telling me is true?

    <Character>: You've double crossed me for the last time!

    <Character>: Zhoom! But you said he was dead!
    Sek-Duat XV: Why, I've kept him safe and sound, <Character>. Your Rose friend would have turned to him to dust by now.

    *Magus Hansa scowls at Sek-Duat XV.*

    <Character>: What have you done to him!
    Sek-Duat XV: I've simply extracted my price to keep him safe.
    Magus Hansa: Without the Light Orb to replenish his power and cut off from the power stored in his focusing stone...
    Magus Hansa: ...he resorted to using your friend to extend his own life. He's stolen years of Zhoom's life away.
    Sek-Duat XV: As emperor, they were mine to take.

    Magus Hansa: I do not kill indiscriminately.
    Sek-Duat XV: Oh, my dear, there was nothing arbitrary about those I've killed. Especially those I've killed twice.
    Sek-Duat XV: They had the brightest light... the greatest power, to add to my own.

    *Sek-Duat XV uses his returned power to craft himself a new arm out of light energy.*

    Sek-Duat XV: If my Life isn't going to be restored, then I shall embrace my Undeath. I will burn the life and power out of any whom I deem worthy.

    Sek-Duat XV: You have much in common with your pet, little hero. You act on impulse.
    <Character>: No! <Dragon>!

    *You reach for your Dragon Amulet as Sek-Duat XV reaches out and touches your dragon with his newly crafted arm, draining the color from its body.*
