<Character>: *Reads* "Dear <Character>..."
<Character>: *Reads* "Please meet me out..."
<Character>: It's weird, I've never thought about how much trouble random letters left with Ash tend to get me into.
<Character>: Maybe I shouldn't be so quick to run into the woods at the request of strangers. Nah, what's the wo--
<Character>: *sigh* ...worst that could happen?
<Character>: Thunk?! Thunk's NEVER a good noise.
*Shows you hovering over a pit*
<Character>: I'm standing over a pit arn't I?
*You fall into it*
Some Time Later
<Character>: I should have realized that was a bad idea. What's the worst that could happen? Seriously?
<Character>: That's like saying "What Dragon?" ASKING for trouble.
Aelthai: Oh! A Victim!
Aelthai: Sorry, I meant specimen. You aren't hurt are you? Thank you for volenteering for the experiment!
<Character>: Experiment? What experiment? Who are you? What's going on?
Aelthai: I'm Aelthai, or Miss Fixit if you like, and I'm sorta responsible for making things fun. It's hard to explain. Better if you don't think about it too much.
<Character>: Sorry, I just happened to fall IN A HOLE!
<Character>: That I don't see any way OUT OF.
<Character>: And it seems you're the one keeping me PRISONER!
Aelthai: Not a prisoner...just running a bit of an experiment. Thanks again for your help, are you ready to begin?
<Character>: Don't suppose I have much of a choice, huh?
Aelthai: We're going to put you against some newly...er... trained? monsters and see how you do.
Aelthai (to self): Yes, trained will raise less questions then coded. Right choice.
Aelthai: All of these guys have key to the next room. All you have to do is defeat one of them. Good luck!
Battle specially coded Sandstones that can run away.
If a Sandstone runs away:
Aelthai: Didn't see that coming, did you?!
Aelthai: These beasts start trying to run when they're hurt. What can we do to fix that? Try again!
Once you defeat a Sandstone:
Aelthai: Alright! Good job. Lets see how you deal with the next challenge!
Aelthai: Oh! This one's fun. If you kill him too fast, he'll fully recover his health. Wear him out for 10 rounds or you'll lose the fight in the end!
Aelthai: If you want some advice, I'd wait until I was in the clear before I started to unload damage on him.
Aelthai: Good Luck!
Battle a specially coded Boulder Elemental that won't die unless you wait ten rounds.
If you kill the Boulder Elemental too quickly, this message appears:
"The monster recovers and becomes enraged!"
Aelthai: I have a feeling that you mages won't like this guy.
Aelthai: Don't suppose the Warriors or Rogues will either to be fair. If I were you? I'd not use any mana.
Aelthai: Best to slug it out on him and be done. Trust me. Good luck!
Battle a specially coded Sandstone that fully heals and becomes stronger if you use mana.
If you use mana, this message appears:
"He didn't like you using mana. He has become Enraged!"
Aelthai: And finally, for now, lets say hello to this guy. I've started calling him Frank.
Aelthai: I've discovered they respond better when you identify with them.
Aelthai: I'd pick the gear you'll take into battle carefully, because Frank doesn't respond well to changes in gear. Even pet changes might spook him.
Aelthai: Good luck! I know you can do it!
Battle Frank who gains more HP and becomes stronger if you change any items.
If you change any items during the battle, this message appears:
"Frank does not like that. He has become enraged!"
Aelthai: Well now, that wasn't so bad was it?
Aelthai: I should expect to see these newly trained monsters starting to show up in quests soon!
Aelthai: Thunk? Thunks NEVER a good noise! Look's like Frank, er, got better? And he looks MAD!
Aelthai: Might want to bring some friends in on this one!
Invite Friends by ID!
After defeating Frank:
Aelthai: There now, that wasn't so bad was it?
<Character>: You mean I'm done? Really?
Aelthai: Yup. I'd call that experiment basically successful! Thanks for all your help!
Aelthai: But what about Frank coming back?!
Aelthai: BASICALLY a success!
Aelthai: Anyways, feel free to leave whenever you're done!
Aelthai: What do you mean how? I left the door open you could have left whenever you wanted-
Aelthai: Wait. Humans. You can fly right?
Aelthai: Uh... no?
Aelthai: Right...Well then, here you go!
*A ladder is lowered below, allowing you to climb out of here*
Some of the last lines dialogue mistakenly gives your character the same name as Aelthai.
