The Dragon's Maze!
Maze of the Mana Dragon!
A large dragon has lived for many centuries, building up his magical power by draining mana from Lore's very core. To this end, he took shelter deep underground. However, a dragon of his size could not simply be "forgotten," and so to stop enemies from reaching him easily, he constructed the great maze. Adventurers would occasionally stumble into the maze and become lost. The dragon chose the most powerful adventurers from among these and augmented them with pieces of armor enhanced with corruptive dragon magics. These armor pieces eventually mutated the adventurers into part-dragon monsters that he could then manipulate as his servants to help guard the maze.
«Scene: Entrance to the Dragon's Maze»
Warlic: Thank goodness you're here, «You».
Warlic: I felt it only just recently. A powerful and forgotten magic dwells deep within this mountain.
Warlic: This magic is unlike any I've seen in a long time. It seems to twist both time and space, corrupting them and bending them to its will.
Warlic: If left alone, it could become quite dangerous to Lore.
Warlic: However, if you choose to go into the caverns to investigate, I must give you a few words of warning.
Warlic: First, bring any artifacts that you find directly to me. These magics must be coming from something or someone, and it's best to be on the safe side.
Warlic: Second, because of the distortions this magic is creating, I cannot heal you myself as I do not know what side effects it might bring.
Warlic: So instead, use these special potions I've brought along to heal yourself. They should be unaffected by the distortions herein.
Warlic: Be careful. A dangerous force is at work here.
Quest for the Dragon Knight set?
Let's go! - Enter the maze
- The maze has three wings that you can explore, namely the Stone, Water and Fire wing (from left to right).
- The potion bag on the floor refills your Full Heal potions (7), the ones Warlic gave. These are different from the ones you use for healing in battle.
- You can only refill your potions when you return to the "lobby" of the maze, where the potion bag is.
- Clicking on the potion bag yields the message "You grab as many of Warlic's specialized healing potions as you can carry!"
Maze Traversal, Traps
- Once you enter a wing, you cannot exit until you reach the exit point. Beware!
- If you return to a previously cleared room, you have an unlucky 13% chance of re-encountering a monster.
- Traps are DEX based. The Stone wing has Earth element traps, Water wing has Ice traps, and Fire wing has Fire traps.
Completing a Wing
- To meet the Ancient Mana Dragon (the boss) himself, all three wings must be completed first.
- The Dragon Champion of a particular wing must be defeated before the wing is considered complete.
- To access the Dragon Champion, a switch needs to be activated.
- If you activate the switch within each wing, you get a message "You hear a far-off rumbling..." which indicates that the gate to the Champion has been unlocked.
- If you attempt to enter a door before activating the switch, you are prevented from entry and a message "This door is locked and won't budge. There must be a switch somewhere..." appears.
- Once a wing is completed, it is considered complete until you log out, reset it through Warlic, or try on the helmet that the Mana Dragon offers you before taking it back to Warlic.
- Your progress is saved only upon the completion of the wing. Dying midway through a wing means you will have to redo that particular wing again.
- If you have already completed a wing, attempting to revisit it yields the message "You've already explored this wing."
- Attempting to re-enter the Mana Dragon's domain yields the message "You've already fought the dragon."
Respective Maze Component Rewards
- Completing each component of the maze unlocks a different shop, namely:
- Stone: Armor
- Water: Shield
- Fire: Weapon
- Boss: Misc, Pet, Spell
- Attempting to open a shop that is not unlocked yet yields the message "You haven't found this piece yet!"
...I need help!
- And so you shall receive. Here's the layout of the maze:
Maze Layout (with directions available from each room)
You begin in room 'a' for each wing.
In certain rooms, you are not allowed to traverse diagonally to another room. This is intentional.
Stone wing fastest directions: Up, Up, Top Right, Top Left, Bottom Left, Top Left, Top Left (Switch), Bottom Right, Bottom Right, Bottom Left, Down, Left (Stone Dragon Champion)
Water wing fastest directions: Up, Up, Up, Top Right, Top Left (Switch), Bottom Right, Right, Right, Right, Up (Ice Dragon Champion)
Fire wing fastest directions: Top Left, Top Left, Bottom Left, Bottom Right (Switch), Top Left, Top Right, Top Left, Top Right, Top Right, Right (Fire Dragon Champion)
1 BATTLE: Stone Dragon Champion
«You free the Warrior Spirit upon the defeat of the Stone Dragon Champion.»
Warrior Spirit: Free at last! Thank you!
- Why did you come here?
Warrior Spirit: I came here seeking powerful items to wield in battle.... and I found them.
Warrior Spirit: But once I put them on, I lost control of myself, and before I knew it, I was his servant.
- Can you tell me of this place?
Warrior Spirit: The dragon constructed this maze to keep his enemies from finding him.
Warrior Spirit: This place has kept him hidden for a great many years. He has outlasted nearly every major civilization on Lore.
- Any advice you can offer me?
Warrior Spirit: You will need to defeat all of the dragon's champions to reach his chamber.
Warrior Spirit: Once you do, the central chamber will grant you access to his domain.
Warrior Spirit: Again, my thanks. Now I may rest in peace.
«The Warrior Spirit floats up and vanishes. You return to the lobby of the maze. You also gain access to the Dragon Knight's Hide shop.»
1 BATTLE: Ice Dragon Champion
«You free the Mage Spirit upon the defeat of the Ice Dragon Champion.»
Mage Spirit: My spirit has been freed! I thank you, noble hero.
- Why did you come here?
Mage Spirit: I came here because I felt the powerful magic within, but the magic was too great for me to control.
Mage Spirit: I suspect that the dragon does not fully command it himself, either.
- Can you tell me of this place?
Mage Spirit: I can sense a great build-up of power beneath the maze. The dragon lies below.
Mage Spirit: I do not know why he has dug himself so deeply underground, but I expect that it cannot be good.
- Any advice you can offer me?
Mage Spirit: Do not attempt to wear any of the items you find here without purifying them first.
Mage Spirit: They are corrupted by a powerful magic, one that seems far greater than the dragon should be capable of producing.
Mage Spirit: Then it is time for me to pass on. Take care, hero, for this place is still quite dangerous.
«The Mage Spirit floats up and vanishes. You return to the lobby of the maze, and also unlock the Dragon Knight's Scales shop.»
1 BATTLE: Fire Dragon Champion
«You free the Ranger Spirit upon the defeat of the Fire Dragon Champion.»
Ranger Spirit: The dragon's hold has been broken!
- Why did you come here?
Ranger Spirit: I wandered into this maze entirely by accident, sadly enough, and quickly became lost.
Ranger Spirit: When the dragon offered me the power to escape, I foolishly trusted him. And so, he corrupted me into a draconic minion, bound to serve him.
- Can you tell me of this place?
Ranger Spirit: I did get ample time to explore the maze when I got lost in here. It's fairly obvious that the maze itself is a decoy.
Ranger Spirit: The dragon is nowhere to be found in this maze. You'll have to find another way to reach him.
- Any advice you can offer me?
Ranger Spirit: If the dragon offers you power, you must refuse him! His magics are too powerful for a human to bear.
Ranger Spirit: They will corrupt you completely, turning you into his servant for eternity.
Ranger Spirit: Then I shall take leave of you now. Take care.
«The Ranger Spirit floats up and vanishes. You return to the lobby of the maze, and also unlock the Dragon Knight's Fang shop.»
«Domain of the Mana Dragon»
«Once you complete all three wings, a swirling vortex opens in the center of the lobby of the maze, and the option to enter the domain of the Mana Dragon appears.»
1 BATTLE: Ancient Mana Dragon
Ancient Mana Dragon: You waste your time. I cannot be killed by one such as you, no matter how much you struggle.
«You»: What is this place? And what are you doing down here, anyways?
Ancient Mana Dragon: You have made it further than any other, so I suppose you have earned an explanation.
Ancient Mana Dragon: Ever since I was first born, I sought power. But not through squabbles over gold and land, like other Red Dragons.
Ancient Mana Dragon: I wanted physical and magical might. I wanted to be more powerful than any creature on Lore, even the gods themselves.
Ancient Mana Dragon: I began to consume magic from every ley line and nexus that I could gain access to.
Ancient Mana Dragon: Naturally, the gods were not pleased with my actions, and sought to get rid of me.
Ancient Mana Dragon: But I had not yet gained the power to face them. So I fled to the depths of the planet.
Ancient Mana Dragon: And from deep within the planet, I began to feed upon the core of the planet, the strongest nexus of magical power.
Ancient Mana Dragon: Oh, the gods tried to stop me. They sent those strange multi-colored elementals after me, but I killed them easily.
Ancient Mana Dragon: Now they don't even bother. They know I have surpassed them! And if the gods cannot kill me, then what hope do you have?
Ancient Mana Dragon: However, you have amused me with your valiant efforts to stop me. And so, you may take this.
«The Crest of the Dragon Knight appears in front of you.»
- Take to Warlic
Ancient Mana Dragon: Now, begone. I must try once more to drain from the planet's magical reserves. Have to keep trying....
«Scene: Outside the Mana Dragon's maze»
Warlic: I see.... so the dragon tried to trick you into donning the full set in his presence, before I had time to purify it.
Warlic: You were wise not to do so. You would have been corrupted almost instantly.
«You»: How is he able to corrupt humans so easily with these artifacts?
Warlic: It is a power he has no doubt acquired as a result of feeding on the planet's core.
Warlic: A foolish move on his part. There is a reason that very few races draw magic from the planet's core. It is simply too powerful for them to handle.
Warlic: I suspect that once he began to draw from the planet's core, the magic corrupted his very being, turning him into a shell of what he once was.
Warlic: His magic has grown much stronger, true, but.... you could tell, couldn't you? He has drained too much.
Warlic: His body and mind are broken. He is no longer able to syphon any further magic from the core because of the damage to his body.
Warlic: He likely lacks the physical strength to escape from the maze now. That maze has become a self-made prison.
Warlic: And the magic has taken a mental toll, as well. While he is indeed beyond your ability to kill, he is far from the godly power he sought.
Warlic: He doesn't have a good grasp on reality.... he may have even forgotten his own name, so lost is he in the power he has gained.
Warlic: Let this be a lesson, «You». Too much power will corrupt, and it will destroy both your body and mind.
«You unlock the Dragon Knight's Crest shop.»
- Try it on!
«You»: Hey, this is a good look for me.
«You don the full Dragon Knight set, including the helmet.»
Ancient Mana Dragon: It seems that while you are certainly stronger than other adventurers, you are not smarter.
«The Ancient Mana Dragon's eyes turn red. Your body flashes red.»
«You»: Wait, what's happening.... I feel strange....
«You sprout wings and turn into a green half-dragon. You then kneel on one knee.»
«You»: I live only to serve you, my master.
When you put on the helmet that the dragon offered you without consulting Warlic first, you gave him an opening to corrupt you, and to re-corrupt all of the equipment that you found. Now a mindless slave of the dragon, you spend the rest of eternity guarding his maze from future intruders. Now that you know not to accept presents from strangers, what to try again?
- Return to Battleon
«As a consequence of your actions, your progress of the maze is completely erased, and you have to start from scratch once more.»

«You»: Greetings, stranger.
???: «You»? Chosen of Lore?
«You»: Depends on who's asking.
Scion: I am Scion, and you had better come with me right now. The Hall of Memories is unraveling and Abode cannot stop it.
Scion: It has taken several people, including Falerin himself, and there are transmorphers everywhere.
«You»: *sigh* Your sense is uncanny, Hans. Yet another picnic ruined. Lead on, Scion.
The Hall of Memories is falling apart, and the only one who can help (besides you, of course) is the mysterious Scion the Nachtfee! Can you fight through the waves of Transmorphers and find all the lost souls before it's too late?

Ardendor: Much appreciated Chosen One. Now I can return to my time and join the other Falerin...ses? The Falorian tribe of Manly Men. No wait, there is a kid... Bah nevermind.
Robina: You have defeated Terrestria, the earth sorceress who gained control of the Worm-Men and attacked town! But one question remains unanswered: What force caused Terrestria to attack us? What did she come here for?
«Over in a dank cave, Zorbak meets up with Kabroz...»
Zorbak: Brother! I want to commend you once more for thinking up another great plan!
Kabroz: Zorbie, it wouldn't have worked if it wasn't for you finding that worm-loving sorceress!
Zorbak: Mehehehe... yes, I guess so. I am quite the EBIL GENIUS, I suppose. Now, all of the graves for miles around have been connected by a series of tunnels dug by Terrestria's Worm-Men!!

«You»: Oh NO you don't. You're too young to see how this ends. We're going back to the war camp.
«Kid Fal turns to face you.»
Kid Fal: «You», I assure you I can handle it! I am a god of age--
«You»: No "but"s! And if the next words out of your mouth aren't "yes sir", then I'm turning this war around SO FAST that Teen Fal will feel it!
Kid Fal: With all due respect, I must question your--
«You»: EXCUSE ME?!
Kid Fal: *sigh* "Yes sir."
«You leave with Kid Fal. Galanoth and Cyrus enter the scene.»
Bradakhan: You-- may have beaten me today--- but I will regain my power-- and return!!
Cyrus: You nearly destroyed the Dracomancers even as I had brought us back from the brink of extinction. As it stands, the damage you caused will take a generation-- if not more-- to repair.
«Cyrus begins to transform.»
Cyrus: No. I cannot allow you to do this again. NEVER AGAIN!

«Upon the Undead Zard's defeat, you slowly regenerate your HP.»

«You»: Hey, I'm not saying I didn't appreciate the effort. Just that, well, Zards are pushovers. Undead or not.
Zorbak: Mehehe-- Stand back, Kabroz. While you were figuring out how to reanimate a common and fairly weak creature, I was out being CREATIVE-- as usual.
Zorbak: NOW WATCH as I redeem our ebil names!!

Absolix: Hahahaha... Yes, you have shown me the error of my ways. I thought I might gain an advantage in calling forth the mightiest of those who have gone before me.
Absolix: But I was a fool.... How could I have not realized? THEY WERE ALL DEFEATED!!! Of course they could be beaten again. There is nothing better than-- ORIGINALITY.

«Xitra leaves the scene.»
«You»: Ryuusei, what will you do now?
Gaiden: My father and I have much to discuss with his analog, and no place else to turn. Our own world is not much safer than this Alternate Lore.
«You»: You'll come to our Lore, then?
Ryuusei: We will indeed.
«You»: Something about this still bothers me.
Cartwright: What might that be, «You»?
«You»: How did Xitra Regeirk even know what the meteors were capable of? He seemed to know before they even began. He had to get that knowledge somewhere...
Cartwright: Now that the flecks have changed him we may never know.
«You»: Nor what choices could have lead him there.
Diviara: It is very strange. This world has always had many many undead. But when we were here before... there was no Necromancer ruling over them.
Ryuusei: Let's not focus on that now. Gaiden is free and the meteor storm is over. That field will keep him a long time. Let's not worry about what we cannot alter.

«You»: It's... uh... a long story that I'll explain once we get home?
Lanfire: Indeed. It is quite the tale, but this is neither the time nor place.
Ryuusei: How... peculiar. It must be quite the explanation.

Leader: ENOUGH!!! You! You and your blasted order have annoyed me for the last time. I weary of your incessant need to try and thwart my efforts.
Eukara Vox: And I weary of your desire to cause such ruin across the universes.
Leader: Ruin? Nay, Eukara Vox, this is not ruin! This is order, security, and comfort. What you stand for, and any who fight alongside you, is chaotic. Creativity... Imagination...
Leader: ...all unorganized, unharnessed, random... It clouds the mind of logic and clarity, stealing away perfected intelligence.
Eukara Vox: Creativity and imagination is the core to Life!
Leader: Hahaha! You wish what you believe is the only truth. How selfish, Eukara Vox! This... This is what your precious creativity does. It makes you think you are more than you really are.
Eukara Vox: And you? Forcing others to adhere to your ideals? What does that make you?
Leader: Enlightened. Lay down your guns, people of Lore, and believe not the lies of this Guardian.
«Eukara Vox raises a painball gun and aims it at the Leader.»
Eukara Vox: You will find, Truphma, Lore is not like the previous victims of your "Enlightenment."
Leader: So, you are going to fail to protect them like your order has in the past on other worlds?

«A wrecked Truphma Tank is what remains from the battle.»
Eukara Vox: I told you. Lore. Would. Not. Fail.
Leader: Such faith you have in them. This is only the beginning, Eukara Vox. You can't save them... all.
Eukara Vox: As long as you exist, I will be here to fight.
«Eukara fires a paintball from the gun she's holding. In slow motion, the paintball approaches the Leader. Upon impact, a burst of smoke forms and the Leader vanishes into thin air.»
«You»: Thanks... Just what I needed.
Eukara Vox: No! The Truphma got away!
«You»: Will it be back?
Eukara Vox: The Truphma suffered a great amount of losses. The Leader will have to rebuild, and once it has, you better believe it will return.
Eukara Vox: Lore resisted and that... will haunt it for a long time. But for now, let us celebrate. Lore won an incredible victory today.
«From behind Yulgar's Inn, Donovan exits.»
Donovan: Could you have possibly taken any longer to get here? If one lick of paint got on any of my clothes I am holding you personally responsible.
«You»: You're welcome?
«Donovan partially phases back to the Hall Of Memories as he says:»
Donovan: Furthermore, I'm not sure why I'm havi---
«Donovan fully vanishes. You return to the Hall of Memories war camp.»
Scion: I love it when a plan comes together. Not too bad when a god does it either...
«You»: What is your story exactly Scion? Why were you in the hall in the first place and what is your history with Darkovia?
Scion: Some other time Chosen, some other time. I really have business to attend elsewhere.
Falerin: Something had made it so that the Hall was unable to read Memory Prime accurately it was rewriting memory registers.
Falerin: The hall would intend to read and play one event but the address provided would read another instead.
«You»: So you are saying that Abode got a virus?
Falerin: No not Abode. The actual physical system. But yes in essence. And given the transmorphers all signs link to Erebus but I have rechecked... Erebus is not involved.
«You»: Then who?
Falerin: I do not know. But someone who had access to the Abode inside. Maybe someone Erebus unleashed before, who remained inside shielded from my own inspection.
«You»: Erebus laid a booby trap in the hall then?
Falerin: More like a trojan horse.
«You»: Trojan horse?
Falerin: A double entendre here. A backdoor into the system someone still had to activate it. And it was not Erebus himself. But once there it did not need to be anyone with Erebus' level of power.
