*You arrive at Sek-Duat XV's pyramid in Duat, the Sandsea, when a member of The Rose approaches you.*
Yasimi: I'm sorry, but no one is allowed into the pyramid at this time. It's too dangerous.
<Character>: Dangerous? I thought Sek Duat was overthrown.
Yasimi: That may be so, but he has left behind special... "gifts" for those that toppled him from power.
Yasimi: There are countless traps and other dangers of magical nature.
Yasimi: Until we complete our assessment, we cannot allow anyone to wander too far from town, or into the pyramid itself.
<Character>: I'm not afraid of a little danger. I've done my fair share of adventuring, you know.
Yasimi: There are undead inside, persistent one. It would be irresponsible of me to let you pass, experienced or not.
<Character>: Oh it's just undead? That's no problem at all.
<Character>: I could help you clear out the pyramid if you'd like. I probably have a weapon or spell–
<Character>: I mean, I, uh. Um.
*Yasimi scowls at you disapprovingly.*
Yasimi: This town is under the protection of The Rose. If you're a magic user who's wandered in, you should know not to cause any trouble.
Yasimi: Unless you don't know what's good for you.
<Character>: Are you threatening me?
???: That's enough.
Magus Hansa: Stand down, guard... Yasimi, is it?
Yasimi: This <Class> isn't with us, Magus.
Magus Hansa: I know. But s/he is here by my personal invitation.
<Character>: This is how The Rose treats strangers looking to help?
Magus Hansa: Even as a blind mage... I still seem to see more clearly than you.
Magus Hansa: You approached a restricted area, brimming with magic. A potential threat. Potential.
Magus Hansa: Yasimi, this <Class> is no danger to the townspeople, or us. Perhaps s/he can help us clear the surrounding desert of danger?
*Yasimi scowls at you again.*
<Character>: I'll see about these "dangers" then.
<Character> (thinking): Maybe I can find out what happened to Sek Duat...
*You head off towards the desert, as Yasimi keeps an eye on you; you fight your way through various monsters until you reach the hidden ruins of a tower; at its apex, you find "Sek-Duat XV" sitting upon his throne... until he begins to fall apart, metal clanking as the fake limbs fall to the ground.*
*A trap door opens directly beneath you; you plummet down and land with a crash.*
*You land in a dark room deep underground, surrounded by trash.*
<Character>: Welp... *grunt*
<Character>: At least this cold hard stone floor softened the impact...
*You open your eyes to see the real Sek-Duat XV sitting before you on a wooden chair, heavily decayed.*
Sek-Duat XV: And so we meet once again, <Character>.
*Scene cuts to black.*
