Haven on the Horizon
???: I heard you were looking for me, Srazhenie?
???: Let them in. They speak the truth.
Caught in a Vise
Mritha: Welcome to the Haven, Kara. And... you, I don't believe I've met?
Mritha: Likewise. I've heard many stories of your exploits before you were frozen. I look forward to working with you.
Mritha: And it seems we've finally been able to open the doors. Although I do wish it were under less dire circumstances.
Mritha: Kara, <Character>, please forgive Srazhenie. As Kara is well aware, most of the dravir are slow to trust, and for good reason.
Mritha: For most of their recorded existence, the dravir were enslaved by dragons.
Mritha: Their recorded existence, that is. The dragons erased whatever culture had come before, and the dravir only knew slavery and subservience.
Mritha: It wasn't until the elemental wars over a thousand years ago that some dravir managed to escape.
Mritha: And even then...
Mritha: They were directionless. All they knew was slavery.
Mritha: Even now, there are dravir who believe the dragons to be their creators...
Mritha: ...although some of the old artifacts we have discovered suggest otherwise.
Mritha: And while the rule of dragons is no longer as widespread as it once was...
Mritha: ...many dravir still dread their return, and are thus exceptionally wary of any potential threats.
Mritha: It took quite some time for them to trust me and especially my dragon partner Odgne...
Mritha: ...but that they could, gives me hope that they may become great allies to the Vind in times to come.
Mritha: I hope so. If what is said about you is true, I can only imagine you've come across enslaved or "lost" dravir in your adventures.
Mritha: They were given no choice but to fight, just as you were given no choice but to defend yourself.
Mritha: The dravir here understand that, and will not hold it against you.
Mritha: Yes, and it is not looking good. I don't know how, but they are definitely on the scent of Haven.
Mritha: I suspect the involvement of The Rose. While they do not have the means to communicate with the dragons...
Mritha: ...it's possible they're attempting to make use of them to entrap the dravir into an alliance or worse.
Mritha: Then on that front it is fortunate that you arrived before The Rose did.
Mritha: The fear of the dragons drives the dravir to desperation, and we would rather have them turn to us than The Rose for aid.
Mritha: I am stating the facts of the situation.
Mritha: Manipulative or not, you are the leader of the Vind, Kara, and I suggest you take the opportunities that present themselves.
Mritha: Speaking of which, <Character>, I have a task for you. The stories say that you are bonded with a dragon. Is that true?
Mritha: And where is <Dragon> at this moment?
Mritha: The dravir were impressed with the bond I have with Odgne- not of master and servant, but as partners and friends.
Mritha: Perhaps seeing you and <Dragon> would earn you and the Vind more of their respect.
Mritha: But do hurry. I'm sure The Rose and the dragons will not wait for you to return.
Mritha: In the meantime, we'll try to explain the situation to the dravir. Maybe with some careful words, we can come to some agreement...
If you have a Dragon Amulet: Mritha: Don't worry. We'll push back The Rose. They won't breach the Haven!
Mritha: This... This is <Dragon>?
Mritha: I mean no offense, but you sounded a lot... larger in the stories.
Mritha: Please excuse my disrespect, mighty <Dragon>!
If you don't have a Dragon Amulet:
Mritha: It's nice to meet you too, <Dragon>!
Mritha: Yes, those enemies won't know what hit them, indeed!
Taking A Stand
Mritha: How are you holding up? Working with Clawkin and Dravir must be a new experience for you.
Mritha: I can imagine. But what matters is that you're taking action.
Mritha: You're not standing aside and letting The Rose do as they wish.
Mritha: You're helping to protect those that need protecting!
Mritha: I... Well... I am.
Mritha: When The Rose started hunting dragons, the other DragonLords decided to flee.
Mritha: To hide away and let the politics of Greenguard sort themselves out.
Mritha: They were content to seek refuge for DragonsGrasp while others suffered at the hands of The Rose.
Mritha: I couldn't abide that. Nor could my partner, Odgne.
Mritha: So we left, and eventually, we found Kara.
Mritha: They'd call it "preparing" or "maintaining a stance of non-intervention".
Mritha: They talk about how they don't want the people to be dependent on them, and nonsense about how they must "balance instinct and nobility".
Mritha: I call it cowardice.
Mritha: There were quite a few of us with doubts. But due to DragonsGrasp's isolation, news of The Rose was slow to reach us.
Mritha: When we finally got word of what happened at the Sanctuary... Well, I lost my temper when it was decided to yet again not intervene.
Mritha: Odgne and I left.
Mritha: I still keep in touch with my old friends.
Mritha: I hope, with time, and with more evidence of The Rose's wrongdoings, I can bring them around to join the Vind.
Mritha: Indeed. And I won't give up. While I may hold resentment toward the DragonLords and dragons of DragonsGrasp...
Mritha: ...I hold faith that they'll do the right thing, eventually.
Mritha: ...Oh no.
Mritha: Get ready, <Character>. They're going be on us any moment–
Mritha: They're here! Everyone, get ready! The dragons and The Rose have arrived!
The Siege of Haven
Mritha: The Rose and the dragons aren't working together- while they've pincered Haven, they fight each other when they meet on the battlefield.
Mritha: But we're unified, and hold a strong defensive position.
Mritha: With both sides bent on the destruction of Haven, it's all we can do to survive in the conflict.
Mritha: Keep that optimism, Niki. I can only imagine things will escalate from here.
A Decisive Blow
Mritha: So? What's the plan?
Mritha: What... what is this?
Mritha: What have you done to that dragon? Release it at once!
Mritha: That dragon is chained! We have to stop this!
Mritha: No, there's no need to apologize. How are you and your people faring, Srazhenie?
Mritha: A wise decision, Srazhenie.
One Step Forward
Mritha: Aren't you a bit tall to be a fairy?
Mritha: Brave talk from an oversized dragon snack.
Mritha: ...I think we're going to get along.
Mritha: I agree. We can't stand by and do nothing.
Mritha: Melissa? What's going on?
Mritha: That had to have been her plan!
Supply and Demand
Mritha: The dravir need more room, Kara. The current arrangements are too cramped for their wings.
Mritha: That's true! We could ask them for more help. Maybe an alliance?
Mritha: Unless we can secure the route, it will be a tough proposition.
Mritha: Many who lost everything risked their lives to end up in Sulen'Eska. Asking them to brave the swamps and face the unknown once again...
Mritha: Kara... I would be cautious of such sources.
Mritha: What's on your mind, Kara?
Mritha: Indeed, I do.
Mritha: I'll be waiting for you and <Dragon>, below.
Mritha: I'm sorry, Odgne, but you must stay behind.
Mritha: We can't risk Rose sentries seeing you so in the skies so far outside the swamp!
Mritha: We've run missions separately before. This isn't the first, and it won't be the last.
Mritha: I'll be back before you know it!
Mritha: So they have!
Mritha: Yes, I was just saying goodbye to Odgne.
Mritha: It's never easy being apart from the one you are bonded to, as I'm sure <Dragon> can attest to.
Mritha: Ha! I'm sure it will develop over time!
Mritha: Anyway, I'm ready to go now! Let's go find out what Melissa and Niki are up to!
Mritha: I think... Let's all take a step back. Lower your weapons, Melissa, Niki.
Mritha: There's five of us here. I don't think this Sir Leon would be able to do much with all of us here.
Mritha: Now, Sir Leon, what business do you have with the Oculus Tower?
Mritha: You're not in any position not to.
Mritha: Then the resistance would be laid bare.
Mritha: Well, Sir Leon, you've found the resistance, at least.
Mritha: But the tower is outside our current operational area. If you would like to come with us back to—
Mritha: With the potential for negotiations with The Rose coming up...
Mritha: We can't afford to give them more ammunition to use against us in potential talks for peace.
Mritha: And we certainly can't take such risks just by the word of a wandering knight.
Mritha: It's your decision, <Character>.
Mritha: Even if he is lying, one lone scout on the far outskirts isn't going to make a difference.
Mritha: When <Character> pays a visit to "The Shears", we'll know for sure if he's lying or not.
Mritha: And, Sir Leon, if you are lying...
Mritha: Well, I have a dragon who I'm sure you'd love to meet.
Lost and Found
Mritha: Niki! What do you intend to do?
Mritha: It's clear this man has wronged you in the past but...
Mritha: If you don't mind me asking... What happened?
Mritha: Well, everything. If you don't mind sharing.
Mritha: What about your family? Surely—
Mritha: Hm? Ah, yes. Yes. Just... just fine.
Mritha: I've just... I've just been thinking.
Mritha: Until you and <Dragon> arrived, Odgne and I were the only DragonLord and dragon pair in Sulen'eska. | Odgne and I are the only DragonLord and dragon pair in Sulen'eska. You and <Dragon> are close, but...
Mritha: Niki's story about finding new family...
Mritha: Sometimes I miss Dragonsgrasp.
Mritha: Don't get me wrong, most of the DragonLords are full of themselves, and too prideful by far, but I had friends.
Mritha: Odgne and I had family. Or pretty close to it.
Mritha: To my friends, yes. Kara helped me send a letter with magic.
Mritha: The DragonLords as a whole may refuse to take action, but I think I can convince my old crew to come join the Vind.
Mritha: The Vind is... I feel like I belong. But if I can convince some of my old friends to lend their aid, to join the resistance...
Mritha: Well, it would certainly be less lonely. And The Rose might have to reconsider their options if we have trained Dragonriders in the skies!
Mritha: ...I don't know if my old friends will even respond, though. The DragonLords are rather strict and uptight about that sort of thing.
Mritha: Yes. Of course.
Mritha: Thank you for listening, <Character>.
Mritha: You too, <Dragon>!
Mritha: We should head back. Maybe try to make sure that man didn't get too lost in the swamp.
Mritha: Melissa. Control yourself.
Mritha: Wait, Odgne hasn't—
Mritha: About that... Odgne hasn't reported anything unusual. No Rose attacks, no disturbances.
Mritha: It is, Taivas. Are you unharmed?
Mritha: With me, Melissa. Let's get everyone back home.
Mritha: Kara, you need to rest...
Mritha: We're all in this together.
Mritha: A matter of time until what?
Mritha: What if Akanthus has her locked up somewhere and took over the organization in secret?
Mritha: Good you're all here.
Mritha: Make sure the prisoners are secure, but we have to prepare, quickly.
Mritha: Odgne spotted The Rose forces mustering on the western border of the swamp. More than any previous assaults.
Mritha: They're still people. We can't let Akanthus use them as he sees fit!
Mritha: Kara is still recovering. I'm taking command, with her blessing.
Mritha: The only thing I can think of is... If we can head them off at the border.
Mritha: If we can provide a big enough show of resistance, we might be able to push them back to regroup.
Mritha: ...I don't know. I don't. If only we had a few more dragonriders, I'm sure we'd succeed.
Mritha: But at the very least, we'll be able to buy time for Kara to lead the remaining refugees out of the swamp.
Mritha: Odgne didn't see any sign of him yet. But if he does take the field, there's nothing we can do. We'd have to retreat.
Fight, Flight, & Fire
Mritha: There are even of them more than I imagined... So many misguided souls.
Mritha: Bajacu', Niki, I want you to sneak around. Get inside the camp and make some chaos. Scatter fires, cause mischief, misdirect.
Mritha: Melissa, we're going straight in, making as much noise and drawing as much attention as possible.
Mritha: I will call upon Odgne, and The Rose will face the fury of a DragonLord and dragon in tandem!
Mritha: <Character>, <Dragon>...
Mritha: Well, what's better than one dragonrider than two? | You'll join me and Melissa on the front.
Mritha: It's your choice, of course, but if you can grow <Dragon>, The Rose will be scared out of the swamp for sure. | The sight of the hero of Falconreach will be sure to strike fear into the hearts of The Rose!
Mritha: Of course! I know it's asking a lot of you, <Dragon>. | As yes, the sight of <Dragon>, too, of course!
Mritha: Now... You all know the odds are against us.
Mritha: There's an entire army of Rose soldiers, and we're charging in headlong without backup.
Mritha: But the people of Sulen'Eska are counting on us.
Mritha: We will push The Rose back, hold the line, and buy the time needed for the refugees to escape!
Mritha: Let's do this.
Mritha: Odgne! To me!
Mritha: Steady, Odgne... Steady...!
Mritha: We can't keep this up for much longer. We've definitely stirred up the hive...
Mritha: But we have to keep fighting.
Mritha: We have to buy time.
Mritha: Odgne what— It can't be...
Mritha: Those... idiots! We're not trying to burn down the forest or kill them all!
Mritha: Odgne, can you fly up there and tell them to control themselves?
Mritha: Everyone accounted for? Let's get out of here before it's too late.
Mritha: We'll meet the DragonLords on the edge of the swamp. Where it's not so... burning.
Mritha: Finally got tired of sitting around doing nothing?
Mritha: I'm kidding. I am glad to see you, my friends.
Mritha: It's about time you showed up!
Mritha: Although... you also seem to have gotten a bit carried away.
Mritha: Let me guess, you're still not allowed to retaliate against The Rose in kind?
Mritha: You don't need to apologize for that!
Mritha: You arrived just in time. Could have done with less fire though. We're trying to preserve life, not take it.
A Day for Farewells
Mritha: I should hope so.
Mritha: You've seen Carat and the other prisoners. <Character> has worked with some members of The Rose before, too.
Mritha: They're people, with lives, and families, and hopes and dreams.
Mritha: I didn't mean- There has to be a way to find peace, a common ground—
Mritha: And what about the rest of Greenguard? Of Lore?
Mritha: There has to be another way.
Mritha: You can't be serious.
Mritha: And you expect The Rose to just let <Character> stroll up to the Ivory Tower?
Mritha: I'll show the DragonLords and the dragons to their lodgings then.
On Broken Wings
Mritha: So, you sent <Character> into Espina Rosa? I had my reservations, Kara, but the Face Nommer worked.
Mritha: Don't get me wrong, you've been right on target every time, but this one... was just a bit weird.
Mritha: Still, to leave us in the dark while you were risking life and limb? You are the leader here, Kara, there are expecta--
Mritha: Aye, as do I. And I hope it will never come to that, Kara. You will ensure that, right?
Mritha: You can't be serious!!
Mritha: Dragons that can smell magic, find you, and alert their riders... Kara, please!
Mritha: I don't approve, at all. I don't care what you think your duties to us are, Kara, think of your own skin for ONCE for Odgne's sake.
Mritha: Done, but she isn't happy about this either. Just thought you should know.
Mritha: Yes, Kara.
Mritha: I have a feeling we don't want to know what this past event is.
Mritha: What is this?
Mritha: <Character>. I hope you're ready to do what must be done.

Mritha: I just don't understand, <Character>....
Mritha: Search the Espina Rosa, <Character>. Don't let Kara's sacrifice be in vain.
Prologue - Longing
Mritha: It's good to have Kara back. I hope she is recovering well.
Mritha: I wonder how the Espina Rosa infiltration is going...
Mritha: The Espina Rosa is heavily fortified and escape is said to be impossible... but I know they can make it out!
Mritha: So how did your mission go?
Mritha: Kara is back, <Character>! She's waiting for you.

The Runed Fortress
Mritha: Why did she have to go and do a stupid thing like that? A trap! She should have seen it coming.
Mritha: Leaders make sacrifices, yes, but they don't go blindly charging into danger!
Mritha: Odgne, yes, really.
Mritha: Not the same thing!
Mritha: Melissa is a princess! She is just as much a leader.
Mritha: Oh Odgne, how am I going to do this? Elves are not Dragons or Dravir. So... so not Dragons or Dravir.
Mritha: And then, I have <Character> to worry about. There are too many lives in my hands.
Mritha: I am fortunate to have you, dragon of my heart. I just hope <Character> is doing well.
The Elite Patrol
Mritha: It's too much. Melissa has been wonderful, so supportive and helpful. The fairies are amazing in that they are ready to go at a moment's notice.
Mritha: Ah, my dearest companion, what would I do without you? My dreams are dark, my days are rushed and bleak.
Mritha: I just wish it was over. I miss walking among the Dravirs and Dragons and laughing.
Mritha: Tell Senthris to hold on. We all have to. And then we have <Character>. Sent off to infiltrate a dangerous place...
Mritha: I hope <Character> is able to do this alone.
Mritha: We did it. I knew all along my people would never fail.
Mritha: I know, and they would do anything for me. That is a scary responsibility, to know such passion and dedication.
Mritha: I wouldn't trade it for all the wonder in Lore.
Mritha: <Dragon> will have to choose to fight without <Character>, or stay behind and guard Sulen'eska and the Dravir camp.
Mritha: Aye, it will certainly be different, but we must act as soon as possible.
Mritha: Seallah must be defeated...
Mritha: ... and we must assert the true Dragon reign over dragonriders and free them of the disillusion that they have sunk into.
Mritha: I know.
Mritha: How? Where?
Mritha: They took down a tower? Just like that? Kara should know of this. Maybe there are others who would be willing to aid our cause.
Mritha: Tell Marseltha to accept the leader's invitation.
Mritha: Have Marseltha bring him straight here. Keep an eye out for our patrols, heart sister. The Rose is certainly on edge now.
Mritha: I know Kara doesn't like letting strangers in to Sulen'Eska, but we need all the allies we can get, especially now. I hope this isn't a mistake...
Mritha: Well, greetings, Sir Leon.
Mritha: You've destroyed a tower. You've hit them and made them vulnerable. And, I daresay you meant to show that to all of Lore.
Mritha: Oh yes they can. I believe the goals of our two groups -your knights and the resistance here in Sulen'Eska- are aligned, Sir Leon.
Mritha: Good. I'll bring you to Kara, our leader, and I have no doubt we can find a place for you among our ranks.
Dragonrider War Intro
Mritha: We have him. That traitor and soul breaker will pay for all that he has done to dragonkind.
Mritha: My scouts found his hideout. It's not that far away, easily within flying distance without tiring out our companions.
Mritha: Dragonriders will take their revenge and right the wrongs.
Mritha: As soon as I can. What have you in regards of rescuing Kara?
Mritha: Go. Your sister needs you. We need her.
Mritha: Odgne, my dearest. We leave soon.
Mritha: What do you mean?
Mritha: That would require that the dragon be without the rider, and <Character> is not in any condition to leave their current assignment.
Mritha: But, you know what will happen if something goes wrong. Do you think <Character> and their dragon want to take that chance?
Mritha: No. No, I haven't Odgne.
Mritha: Could you please ask?
Mritha: Broken man, you have nearly destroyed all that is great and good regarding dragons. I wanted you dead.
Mritha: I wanted you wiped from this world so no one could ever do what you have done.
Mritha: But, Senthris... was very persuasive. She thinks she can fix you.
Mritha: You can do this. All of our faith is in you, Senthris.
Mritha: Regroup, people. We have to be ready for when Kara comes home!
An Uncertain Future
Mritha: Yes, he was. He has other things to attend to, but he was quite adamant about being the one to rescue you.
Mritha: Not only for you, but to learn. And he learned much.
Mritha: What do you mean, Bacaju'?
Mritha: Know what?!
Mritha: Tell us everything.
Mritha: It sounds like she is trying very hard to tell herself she is right.
Queen of Swordhaven
Mritha: We've found a place for it. The Free Dravir Council approved setting it up in Fairglade.
A Petal Falls
Mritha: Yes, ma'am.
Mritha: Hey, <Character>.
Mritha: She's as well as a dragon can be. Currently on perimeter duty to make sure we're not disturbed in our expedition into the ruins.
Mritha: Well, there are plenty of other DragonLords to help out.
Mritha: And the Amityvale front isn't nearly as exciting as this!
Mritha: These ruins are older than old...
Mritha: Odgne thinks they may have been rebuilt and repurposed multiple times over the ages by different settlers.
Mritha: With the nomad tribes having left this one, who knows what sort of new discoveries we could make about history here?
Mritha: Of course! And I'm here to help with that too.
After completing A Shocking Discovery:
Mritha: I could introduce you to Odgne, a full-grown dragon, if you'd like.
A Shocking Discovery
Mritha: For the last time, Ostromir, no, we aren't going to excavate through the ruins unless we have no other choice.
Mritha: Not to mention it would anger the nomads when they return. It wouldn't do well for us to plunge into a preventable conflict so soon.
Mritha: That's... We prefer peace here, Ostromir.
If you select the 'I agree. We're in a rush.' option:
Mritha: Good thing it's not in your hands then. Queen Victoria specifically doesn't want to anger the nomad tribes any more than we already might.If you select the 'No, we must be careful.' option:
Mritha: Besides, Queen Victoria specifically gave us orders not to disturb the ruins any more than we must. Mritha: What are those things? What have they captured?
Mritha: And it's on her generosity that you're even here.
Mritha: Maybe it can help us find the focus if we free it.
Mritha: Well, let's see who or what we've saved.
Mritha: I could smash it with my sword, maybe.
Mritha: I, too, am... reluctantly... disarmed by its harmless appearance.
Mritha: I have so many questions.
Mritha: Avatars help us.
Mritha: It's about time we headed back out and met up with Vseslava's group.
Mritha: Let's hear what they have to say about Prince Eulin.
Mritha: Understood. I'll begin the search with Odgne at once.
Mritha: Sorry, <Character>. Nothing substantial.
Mritha: Well, nothing really. Whatever happened to them, it's like they disappeared without a trace.
Mritha: And the search of the ruins is going slower due to it's own unique threats.
If you have a Dragon Amulet: Mritha: We will find them. Even if we have to go to the ends of Lore. Or beyond.
Mritha: Have you tried... reaching out to <Dragon>? Even though <Dragon> is still young, you're a powerful DragonLord... perhaps...
Mritha: I'm sorry, <Character>. I should have assumed you already tried.
Mritha: Great. Now that we're all reunited, what's our plan?
Mritha: Hey there, <Character>. You must be relieved that <Dragon> is back!
Mritha: I am. Odgne will keep watch from outside, so we shouldn't be interrupted by anything too unexpected.
Mritha: Provided the Prince doesn't betray us again.
Mritha: I certainly trust him less. Kara says we should forgive him for his mistakes, but he'll have to earn that forgiveness from me, at least.
Mritha: Happy to provide it. Take care, <Character>.
Mritha: You're sure? Maybe we're just getting close to the rift.
Broken Circuit (Part 1)
Mritha: We don't have much time then, regardless. How's the progress on the focus?
Mritha: Huh? Yeah, sure.
Broken Circuit (Part 2)
Mritha: I heard that!
Mritha: I'll go with you, <Character>.
Mritha: I've had enough of these ruins for a while, I think.
Mritha: And it would be good to pay Odgne a visit in person.
Mritha: I am glad to hear it. The townsfolk are safe, then?
Of Duty and Dragons
Mritha: See ya!
Mritha: It's been nice. Odgne isn't a fan of the forest, but maybe we can visit again soon.
Mritha: Dragonsgrasp could have sent a rider with news! They could have helped!
Mritha: No. Odgne and I will lead the way. We know where the fortress is hidden.
Mritha: Now that conflict has come to their doorstep, the DragonLords can't ignore it any longer.
Mritha: I won't let them.
Mritha: We're here to help deal with the Proclamation rift that threatens all of Lore!
Mritha: And you're going to let us in, provide us with resources, and help us as well.
Mritha: But nothing. You're either opening this gate, or Odgne and I...
Mritha: ...are tearing it down.
Mritha: They're here to help too, because as hard as it is to get into your thick skulls, this is beyond anything we've faced before.
Mritha: And what happened to the Dragesvard refugees? Don't tell me you turned them away too?
Mritha: Good to hear. Now are you opening this gate for us or not?
Mritha: How very gracious hosts you are.
Mritha: I can tell you later. Let's go, everyone.
Mritha: Welcome to Dragonsgrasp, in all its... ugh... splendor.
The Awakened Depths - Vind Faction
Mritha: Never thought I'd be back here... Ugh.
Mritha: Hi, <Character>. I suppose it's been fine for you, considering your status. And <Dragon>'s status.
Mritha: I'm glad to be back because I can finally make these... these cowards get off their tails and start doing something.
Mritha: Oh... it was glorious!
Mritha: Odgne and I may have burnt a few buildings.
Mritha: While shouting Moglinberry juice fueled profanities.
Mritha: And singlehandedly fought off the DragonLords who tried to restrain us.
Mritha: Haha, you know it! But yes, it was not a most... graceful departure. It certainly left a lasting impression on everyone.
Mritha: DragonLords put a lot by appearances and tradition and honor. Believe me, it shook a lot of those sleepy, content fools, wide awake.
Mritha: And now we're back. The DragonLords won't know what hit them.
Mritha: You know what I mean, <Character>.
Speaker and Slayer
Mritha: Oh believe me, this is the last place on Lore I want to be at the moment.
Mritha: I'm not sure if the stream of refugees from Dragesvard got through that helmet of yours to what little brain there is...
Mritha: ...but the Proclamation Rift threatens all of Lore.
Mritha: Including Dragonsgrasp.
Mritha: The Vind, The Rose, even the Magesterium are working together to stop the impending catastrophe of the Proclamation rifts.
Mritha: Lore needs the DragonLords.
Mritha: And when we convince The Great One to help our cause?
Mritha: Are you DragonLords or sheep?
Mritha: Especially if you're a Speaker... That's an honorable position. Unless you're choosing to live out here on your own?
Mritha: The Vilmor incident. She broke her bond with the Great Ice Dragon, Cryozen, forced–
Mritha: Stop being overdramatic.
Mritha: Such... weight.
Mritha: Good luck, you two.
Reasons to Fight
If you joined the Vind Faction:
Mritha: Kara... Mritha: Lestrad, you promised to listen to the Speaker, and here he is. Or are you as dishonorable as you are cowardly?
Mritha: Kara, the Vind trusts you and your judgement. There are plenty of lieutenants to manage things while you're away.
Mritha: About time!
Into the Unknown
Mritha: So, Odgne and I will fly ahead with the DragonLords.
Mritha: It's still a relatively long flight over open water, so we'll have dragons resting and regaining strength on the ship in shifts.
Mritha: Have you had any more word from the Dragonslayers about the situation on Dragesvard, Galanoth?
Mritha: And so we shall. Let's get the rest of this cargo loaded!
In Search of Slayers
Mritha: Lestrad, you promised to listen to the Speaker, and here he is. But here you are, taking charge like nothing happened!
Mritha: So what did you want to say? Did you sense something?
Roots of Change
Mritha: Looks like the DragonLords have kept themselves busy at least.
Mritha: There's your answer, Captain!
Mritha: I wish I could share your enthusiasm about killer mushrooms.
The Way Forward
Mritha: I just got word from Odgne! The dragons made it through the cap!
Mritha: Odgne didn't mention anything about that. Seems like they're safe, for now.
Mritha: As much as I'm her DragonLord. It's a partnership. Why do you ask?
Mritha: If your only experience with young dragons is <Dragon>, I can see where that confusion comes from!
Mritha: While Dragon Amulets can be used to grow a dragon, without a strong bond or enough energy, the dragon will quickly revert.
Mritha: <Dragon> is also... special. Most young dragons aren't nearly as powerful as they are.
Mritha: Most DragonLords who come across their amulets either find their partners in the wilds, already significantly grown...
Mritha: ...or are found by DragonLord scouting flights.
Mritha: Although in recent times, Captain Lestrad put a stop to those, as well.
Mritha: I get that he's trying to keep the DragonLords safe, but it's such a selfish existence.
Mritha: There are also a number of scattered temples and groves across Greenguard...
Mritha: ... where young dragons and new DragonLords can train, but most of them have been lost.
Mritha: I think you've been to Sunbreeze Grove, <Character>? | The only one I'm familiar with at all is Sunbreeze Grove.
Mritha: Of course.
Mritha: Odgne got the message. Everything should be all set for us to—
Mritha: Oh no. No! It's worse than last time. Much worse!
Mritha: The DragonLord camp is under attack again! Odgne was injured in the initial eruption.
Mritha: We have to get back to the camp. Now!
Through the Tangle
Mritha: Captain Lestrad! What's the plan? Where's Odgne?!
Mritha: Odgne, your wing...
Mritha: Right. Captain, Odgne and I will take to the air and keep watch ahead of our retreat.
Mritha: Or you can wait here for the fungus to find you. We all saw how that turned out, didn't we?
Mritha: Oh... that's gross.
Mritha: You don't suppose it's making more of these Hollow dragons elsewhere, do you?
Mritha: If they have the ability to fly...
Mritha: Even with dragon fire, it would take far longer to burn through this surface than even the fungal webbing above Dragesvard.
Mritha: I vote for some good old fashioned exploration!
The Deep Dark
Mritha: And what are we going to do once we get there? We still don't know how we're going to stop this thing.
Mritha: Then we'll just have to fight and hope for the best.
Mritha: I will tell Odgne to have the other dragons and DragonLords continue the evacuation of the city.
Mritha: If the worst comes to pass, at least we will have minimized the casualties.
Mritha: Well, we've certainly done something!
Into the Abyss
Mritha: Odgne's telling me that—
Mritha: Odgne says the Tytan has risen up out of the water.
Mritha: It's... absolutely massive.
Mritha: There is another very important thing to note, though.
Mritha: The Tytan is on the move.
Mritha: Looks like it's going toward the mainland of Greenguard.
Mritha: If there aren't any other objections, time is of the essence.
Mritha: It's... It's massive...
Fate's Flow (Part 1)
If you joined the Vind faction:
Mritha: <Character> is right. We must be ready for the Alliance to dissolve once the threat is gone.
Mritha: I doubt Akanthus will have given up on his schemes.
Mritha: I don't remember asking your opinion. Who invited this kid along, anyway?
Mritha: Um. Not good. Odgne says the Tytan just seems angrier.
Mritha: Obviously not.
Fate's Flow (Part 2)
Mritha: Captain, Odgne tells me the DragonLord vanguard managed to escape after the Tytan first rose from the depths.
Mritha: We better keep moving then.
Mritha: It took the dragons long enough to burn through the city's fungal cover! How long do you think it would take them to carve through its skin!?
Mritha: We need to jump.
Mritha: Everyone, now!
Mritha: Ha! Yes! Good catch, Odgne!
Mritha: Our ship has been sailing after the Tytan at a safe distance ever since it rose from the ocean.
Mritha: We should be able to land there and plan our next steps.
Mritha: Odgne and I will take the lead, and the others will follow. Just make sure to hold on tight!
Mritha: It's not over yet.
Mritha: You could have mentioned it earlier.
Mritha: There has to be something we can do!
Mritha: Right! Of course! The Great One could use our help!
Mritha: Odgne and I will keep watch. | Odgne and I will lend you our wings.
Awakened Depths: Epilogue (All Versions)
???: Stupid... door! Why's it gotta be so sturdy?
???: Come on, Odgne, give me a push!
Mritha: No, no, it's got to be dramatic! It's got to be cool!
Mritha: Alright! Who needs a refill?! It's on the house!
Mritha: Someone take these kegs from me! I have to get going!
Mritha: We're stopping by every tavern in DragonsGrasp tonight!
Mritha: I'll make sure of that.
Mritha: One moment. Kara, I'm sorry to bring this up so late, but...
Mritha: I think... I think I want to stay and help.
Mritha: Ha. I'm sure I'll want to return to the Vind soon enough. I can only handle so much DragonLord nonsense!
Mritha: But it'll be good to have someone with Vind connections here to help coordinate things.
Mritha: Plus, I can make sure things don't fall apart the moment you set foot on that ship!
Mritha: Right, Lestrad?
