Times Silent Keeper
Location: Battleon » Zard hunter Shop » Other Quests » Evolution!
Dilwod Sackelberry was once a man. He wanted little more than to make it from one year to the next and enjoy himself a little on the way. But in the course of his career as a mold inspector for farmers, Dilwod gained an obsessive curiosity about living things that could seemingly adapt themselves perfectly to fit any condition. This led him to study Frogzards, who transform themselves shortly after they are born to match their environment. Dilwod's experiments ultimately led to him trying a formula on himself. It only partially worked on his physical form, but it started to drive him mad. For years he has continued his experiments... and they continue to become stranger... and stranger...
«You can skip the cutscene at any time.»
«Scene: Near a Beach Tiki Hut»
Zardhunter: «You»! G'day, mate! I've been tracking the Zardmaster for weeks now...
Zardhunter: ... and I've finally found him!
«You»: Great work, Zardhunter! But what makes it so important that we confront him now?
Zardhunter: Crikey! You haven't heard?? You wouldn't believe me if I told you about the crazy new zard hybrids I've been finding all over!
«Zardhunter points toward the Hut.»
Zardhunter: There's only ONE man who could be behind it... and he's in THERE!
«You»: Keep an eye out for any traps. I'll get to the bottom of this...
«Scene: Inside the Hut»
???: Hey! Don't touch any of my stuff!
«The Zardmaster enters.»
«You»: Dilwod. Nice to see you again.
Zardmaster: You're trespassing, buddy. And don't call me Dilwod!! You're going to make me angry... and you don't want to see me when I'm angry.
«You»: Hey... I've heard that somewhere before.
Zardmaster: So did the Zardhunter send you here? That man just won't leave me alone!
Zardmaster: All I really want is to be free to pursue my studies of the natural world.
«You»: Really? The Frogzard Hunter has been watching things very closely since your last little "experiment" with those Insectozards, and he's found a number of even WEIRDER zards since!
Zardmaster: Harrumph... Okay, you got me! What was I supposed to do? Just twiddle my thumbs while every other villain gets to do what they want??
«You»: I wouldn't say THAT... I mean, my friends and I tend to go after EVERY bad guy. It's not like we're singling YOU out.
Zardmaster: Well, good. That makes me feel a little better. So have you seen my new creations yet?
«You»: No, I haven't.
Zardmaster: They are... different. I have to admit that I've had to be very... creative... to devise new zards. Anyway, I'll make sure you get a chance to see them all.
«You»: Oh? How?
Zardmaster: I engineered these new zards so that instead of growing from embryos, requiring a MotherZard, they now grow from SEEDS.
Zardmaster: I strapped bags of ZardSeed to as many griffin and dragons as I could find, poked some holes in the bags, then just let them fly all over Lore.
Zardmaster: The whole planet should be swarming with my new zards in... hmmm... about..... NOW.
«You»: That has got to be your craziest plan yet. Why would you even DO that??
Zardmaster: This is my ULTIMATE PLAN. Because if you don't wipe out all of the new zards by MIDNIGHT IN 4 DAYS, the remaining ones will all dry up and become huge seed pods.
Zardmaster: They'll EXPLODE and spread more seed. Even ONE of my new zards has the potential to create a THOUSAND NEW ZARDS if it goes to seed! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
«You»: You're -- you're -- totally INSANE!!! And what's to stop me from finishing you off right here and now, so you can never see the end of your plan??
Zardmaster: Not only have I finally perfected my zards, I also perfected my OWN zard-mutation. So, you see, I'M what's stopping you!!!!
«The Zardmaster transforms into his gigantic Zard form.»
«You»: Huh. Well, how about that.
Zardmaster: You have more to worry about than ME, anyway. If you don't destroy ALL the new zards by MIDNIGHT 4 DAYS FROM NOW, Lore will finally become a world of zards!!!
«The Zardmaster butts you out of the Hut with his Zard head. From the outside, it can be seen that you're thrown all the way into the sea...»
Dilwod Sackelberry, a.k.a. the Zardmaster, has perfected his mutant formula, and unleashed a new horde of crazy zards into the world! If we don't stop all of his new zards in four days, every remaining zard will explode and shower thousands of zard seeds over Lore. We have to get them all!

«You»: It's over, Dilwod! You lost! We defeated all of your new zards.
Zardmaster: So you came back to me to gloat?! I won't have it! You may have killed my zards, but I'll be picking bits of you out of my teeth for the next few days. MUAHAHAHA!!!
Fight!«The Morphed Zardmaster morphs back into his human form.»
Zardmaster: Oh no... my formula! It wasn't perfect after all!!
«You»: You caused a lot of trouble this time, Dilwod. More than usual! We won't soon froget the zard-ocolypse you almost brought upon Lore!
Zardmaster: *chuckle* You said "froget"... hehehehe...
«You»: We need to know if you have any MORE surprises out there...
Zardmaster: I'll never help you.
«You»: Then I guess you're coming with me-- you'll be spending some time LOCKED UP in Battleon while we mop up your mess!!
