*In Swordhaven Castle's courtyard, Queen Victoria, Melissa, Kara SuLema and her bodyguard, Magus Hansa, Ostromir, and Vseslava have all gathered to discuss the plan of attack regarding the Doomwood rift; you approach Queen Victoria from behind and observe mid-discussion.*

Melissa: You're our leader, Kara. The Vind needs your guidance on the front lines.
Kara SuLema: I have full confidence in Mritha's capabilities. She has already proven herself to be a talented commander without me.
Melissa: While you do what? Jaania isn't going anywhere.

Melissa: This is so unlike you, Lady Kara.
Melissa: Your personal desire for redemption cannot outweigh the needs of the Vind or of Lore!
Melissa: If you give in to that obsession, you'd be no better than Jaania.

Melissa: No offense, Hansa.
G. M. Hansa: Oh, do go on. This is quite the show.
Kara SuLema: You're... You're right, of course, Melissa. Thank you ever so much for your counsel.

*Queen Victoria blinks rapidly, surprised by the dialogue that has just unfurled, before acknowledging your arrival.*

Queen Victoria: Anyway, hello, <Character>! We're in the middle of developing our plan for tackling the Doomwood rift, as you can see.

*You, too, seem surprised at the tone of the conversation taking place.*

<Character>: Hi, everyone. I hope I'm not interrupting.
Kara SuLema: No, you're not. Let us get back on topic.
Queen Victoria: Yes, let's. Amityvale and its surrounding areas have been well defended by its denizens so far.
Queen Victoria: Magus Neron has managed to come to an accord with the vampires and werewolves for the defense of the region.
Queen Victoria: As for the rift itself, it is on the border of Doomwood and the Whispering Steppes.
Queen Victoria: The focus that the Vind scouts have detected appears to be in some old underground ruins near said border.
Queen Victoria: The nomadic tribes have left the area, and as they are not under Swordhaven's rule, we cannot expect them to be of assistance.
Queen Victoria: Therefore, I propose an elite squad, consisting of yourselves and whomever you deem a good fit for the job, to secure the focus before too late.
Queen Victoria: What do you think?
G. M. Hansa: I'm certainly agreeable to this plan. Even with Lady Jaania's current state, the Magi have always been afforded significant independence.
G. M. Hansa: The Rose will be in good hands, even with my absence.
Ostromir: The plan is acceptable. I look forward to exploring what sorts of ruins you have on this continent!
Vseslava: As do I, but an analytical exploration will have to wait until after our duty is done.
Ostromir: Of course, of course.

Ostromir: Job first.
<Character>: The plan sounds solid to me, as well!
Melissa: Go on, Kara. It'll be something to take your mind off... things. I'll stay here to help with the rebuilding.
Kara SuLema: Right.
Kara SuLema: I'll round up some of our best, and we'll establish a base camp for the expedition into the ruins.
Kara SuLema: I would like to have some final words with Lady Jaania, if possible though.
Queen Victoria: I'm sure that can be arranged.
Kara SuLema: As for my bodyguard, I believe–

*Kara's bodyguard nods his armored head.*

Kara SuLema: He would wish to remain here, in Swordhaven, in your service, Queen Victoria, if you are amenable.
Queen Victoria: I can't say that I would mind, but is there any particular reason why?
Kara SuLema: He was inspired by your leadership. Despite any misgivings you may have, you are a capable and strong leader, My Queen.
Queen Victoria: I... very well. I accept.

*With everyone agreeable to the plan, Queen Victoria continues.*

Queen Victoria: Now, when you're all prepared, I expect you to make haste to the ruins.
Queen Victoria: No Tytan has emerged as of yet, but there's no telling if or when that could happen.
Queen Victoria: Should we need to be in contact, the Vind scouts have already set up messenger paths throughout the region. Word will travel fast.
<Character>: Will you be okay here, Queen Victoria?
Queen Victoria: Thank you for your concern, <Character>, but yes. With the rebuilding and recovery, I'll have more than enough on my hands.

If you joined the Rose Faction:
G. M. Hansa: You and me, heading out together toward a continental threat.
G. M. Hansa: Just like old times.
<Character>: At least this one wasn't my fault!
G. M. Hansa: Ha! I look forward to our travels.

If you joined the Golden Hand Faction:
Ostromir: Looks like you'll be giving us a tour of the region, <Character>!
Vseslava: Perhaps we can sample some of the local delicacies along the way? After a proper decontamination, of course.
<Character>: I'll do my best, but I don't think we have time to stop and sightsee.
Vseslava: A shame. Perhaps when this is all over, then.

If you joined the Vind Faction:
Kara SuLema: <Character>, I must burden you once again to travel to Doomwood on your own.
Kara SuLema: I have a few final things to take care of before I leave.
<Character>: Whatever is so personal must be important. I'll manage, I'm sure!
Kara SuLema: Thank you, <Character>.

*You are in one of the Doomwood forests; you fight your way through various elementals of energy as you approach the ruins believed to be the location of one of the focus points; eventually you reach the aforementioned ruins.*

<Character>: Well, this is it.

If you joined the Rose Faction:

*You, your dragon, and Magus Hansa are the first to arrive.*

G. M. Hansa: The magical presence here is certainly intimidating. Such places are sacred to the tribes of the Steppes.
G. M. Hansa: They would not have abandoned the ruins lightly. We must take care.
<Character>: I'll start looking for somewhere to set up the base camp.
G. M. Hansa: Very well. I would like to explore the outside of these ruins a bit more, if you don't mind.

If you joined the Golden Hand Faction:

*You, your dragon, Ostromir, and Vseslava are the first to arrive.*

Ostromir: Such a dreary place. And you people voluntarily chose to settle here?
Vseslava: This place is full of magicks. The Vind scouts must be talented indeed to sniff out a focus among this... mess.
<Character>: Let's start looking for a place to set up camp for when everyone else gets here.
Ostromir: Agreed.

If you joined the Vind Faction:

*You and your dragon are the first to arrive.*

<Character>: No one else seems to have arrived yet, so I guess it's up to us to find a good place to set up camp!

If you have a Dragon Amulet:
<Dragon>: Great, chores, again...

If you don't have a Dragon Amulet:
<Dragon>: *Grumbles*

<Character>: Here, you take this end of the rope and–

*Meanwhile, back in Swordhaven, Jaania and Kara SuLema are sitting down with some tea.*

Kara SuLema: There, that's much better now, isn't it?

*Jaania looks rather disheveled, as if she hadn't slept in days.*

Jaania: Th-thank you, Kara.
Kara SuLema: It's been far too long since we've sat down for tea.
Jaania: ...
Kara SuLema: You know the mirror doesn't tell you what will happen.

Kara SuLema: Only possibilities.
Jaania: I... know.

*Kara pauses before continuing to talk with Jaania following this admission.*

Kara SuLema: Everything in magic extrapolates from the small to large.
Kara SuLema: Every action we make has ripples.
Kara SuLema: You know this.

Kara SuLema: Most everyone knows this, at some basic level.
Kara SuLema: But know also that I trust you. The Rose trusts you– the people of Swordhaven and Greenguard trust you.
Kara SuLema: You took on this burden of protector, and you've proven yourself before–
Jaania: I did no such thing.
Kara SuLema: You did. And you learned from your mistake.
Jaania: ...
Kara SuLema: You needn't be afraid of yourself, for if you open yourself to those who would aid you, we will be there to help.
Kara SuLema: No one person can control the flow and consequences of magic.
Kara SuLema: Look not to the mirror, but to the counsel of those who would have you as a friend.

*Jaania seemingly processes Kara's words of wisdom.*

Jaania: Thank you, Kara.

Jaania: You have given me much to think about.
Kara SuLema: I am ever available should you require me!
Kara SuLema: In the meantime, I must make my way to where duty calls.

*Kara leaves, and Jaania is now alone to reflect on their conversation; it appears to have made an impact on Jaania, however not in the way Kara perhaps intended...*

Jaania: ...Control...

*Scene cuts to black; elsewhere, in complete darkness, an unknown voice can be heard...*

???: ...

*The unknown voice quietens, then returns.*

???: H-hello?

*The unknown voice quietens again, then returns once more.*

???: Oh no no no!
???: What have I gotten myself into this time?!

*Scene cuts to black.*
