Canyon of Lost Souls
Location: Travel Map » Travel South » Canyon of Lost Souls
You have been called to the Krulder Flats, where the Canyon of Lost Souls is found. According to legend, a town once thrived on this very spot, until a great quake created the canyon...
...and swallowed the entire town and its people. The person who called you here did so with a written message, so you now await him, or her.
«You enter beside the canyon.»
«You»: Hellllooooo!!!! Is anyone here??? I was asked to journey to this place to help someone!
«A strangely translucent lady enters the scene.»
«You»: Uhh... hi there. Are you okay? Someone called me here for a reason... was it you?
Sapho Kuri: I am Sapho Kuri, daughter of the High Magistrate. I have been waiting a long time for an answer to my pleas. Many seasons have passed since any feeling resembling hope has risen in my heart.
«You»: Oh my. That must be... sad. Hm. You look kind of pale. Are you feeling okay?
Sapho Kuri: I am a ghost. I feel nothing. So therefore, I cannot truly answer your question.
«You»: A... ghost? *whistles* I guess I'll be going back to my town then...
Sapho Kuri: NO! DO NOT LEAVE!
«You»: No problem! I'll stay right here then. So, uhh.... Nice weather we're having, eh?
Sapho Kuri: Sorry for yelling. I need you badly. You see, my family... my entire town. They're TRAPPED. DOWN THERE. And I've been stranded on the surface for years.
«You»: Why is that? If you are a ghost, you are able to leave the land of the living any time you want.
Sapho Kuri: I could, but I do not want to. I've been waiting for a hero to come along. My family's spirits are being held hostage by The Vrictus Spectre. he feeds off of their anguish and pain. Even the Reaper cannot claim the souls the Vrictus keeps!
«You»: So you want me to go down there and fight something that even the Reaper is afraid of? Hehehehe.... yeah, okay. That's a pretty silly thing to ask someone to do.
Sapho Kuri: I .... need your help...
«You»: Uhh... right. Okay. I can help you. So, wish me luck. Here I go!!!
«Jumping down into the canyon, the view of the red skies through the crack rapidly thin as you fall deeper and deeper down, till you smash into the ground and injure yourself (-«» HP). It's pitch black everywhere.»
«You»: Ooowwwww!! Maybe I should have climbed down instead of jumping...
«With an eerie glow around the area, you find yourself in the town Sapho Kuri mentioned, but no one's around...»
«You»: Ooookay.... here I am. This whole place has a very eerie glow to it. So far, no ghosts to be seen, and no Vrictus Spectre either.
«Echoing through the area is HEEELLP UUUSSS! PLLEEEAASSSSE!...»
«You»: *gulp* I, uh, can't see you, whoever you are! Tell me where you are!«You»: That must have been one of the townsfolk that feel down here long ago. Uh-oh... I hear some shuffling footsteps...«You»: That did it! I should get out of here! Why is it that I'm trying to SAVE these people and they're trying to SLAY me?!
Leave! - Return to town
Keep going! - Continues dialogue
«You»: Well, I suppose I really should try to live up to my word. Sapho Kuri deserves that much at least.«You»: Okay, will somebody please remind me WHY I am still down here??!
«A ghost enters the scene.»
Ghost: Pleeease, defeat the Vrictus Spectre and release us from his control!!! Something wicked this way comes!
«The ghost flees from the scene.»
«You»: Come and get it, you fiend!!«You»: I did it! But what about all those tortured spirits???
«Many spirits float away from the scene, from the defeat of the Vrictus Spectre. You receive a temporary Soul Carver weapon.»
«You»: There they go, free at last! Whoa! What is this weapon? Must have been given to me for defeating the spectre!
«You»: Now, if only I had a Pegasid flying horse with me. I guess I'll just have to... climb... all the way... up. Hehe.
After a hard climb, you reach the surface where Sapho Kuri still awaits you...
Sapho Kuri: My family and friends have finally been set free from the clutches of that filthy Vrictus Spectre!! Thank you so much! Now, I bid you well as I leave this realm for another!
«Sapho Kuri vanishes into the air...»
«You»: Good bye, Sapho Kuri. May we meet again someday. Only may that day be after I've lived a long and happy life devoid of any more spectres!
«You return to Battleon.»
