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!
Rose War Intro
Mritha: It is, but I have been successful in small doses. My dragon, Odgne, has played a pivotal role in the process.
Mritha: She has brought some dragons to the knowledge that their treatment of their brothers and sisters is unjust.
Mritha: Small steps lead to great strides.
Mritha: <Character>, welcome.
Mritha: Srazhenie, Cvetok has verified there is a large contingent of Rose Fighters on their way.
Mritha: They are seeking out the Clawkin who came here for sanctuary.
Mritha: Us? We were all born ready for this. The Dravir knew this day would come. I will alert Stojkaja so he can get his flights assembled.
Mritha: You know what this means?
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 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!
War of the Dragon Rose - Rose Front
Mritha: The Freedom Camp is besieged.
Mritha: I cannot stand the Rose.
Mritha: All they do is hunt down the innocent, break apart families and communities and damage how the world views each other.
Mritha: They are doing more damage than magic ever did.
Mritha: How they think what they are doing is for the good of all, I will never understand.
Mritha: There are other means to fight, <Character>.
Mritha: I need your help, <Character>. The Rose is trying to sneak through our lines.
Mritha: You'll direct the fighters to a corner, and then you'll take it out.
Mritha: We've... commandeered some armor to protect the Fighters you'll be directing. It's up to you to directly them safely though!
Mritha: Good luck!
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 a battlefield.
Mritha: But we're unified, 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 New Worry
Mritha: We may have won, but we will have to relocate. Our Camp is in no condition to help us hide any longer, and the Dragons will be back.
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: A wise decision, Srazhenie.
After the War
Mritha: We can't stay here. The Dragons will be back and we will be vulnerable.
Mritha: I will send Stojkaja and a flight to seek out a place to go and rebuild.
Mritha: Thank you, all of you. We owe you so much.
Mritha: But for now, I must return to the Dravir and Dragons who have declared their alliance with us to tend to the wounded.
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!
The Fairy Court
Mritha: Stojkaja has reported that one of the flights have found a place to relocate. We are not safe here...
Mritha: And knowing that the Rose can shackle the dragons...
Mritha: Those are my thoughts. Something just wasn't right about all this. Nevertheless, I have spoken with the Free Dravir Council.
Mritha: They are grateful for all you have done and have decided to join the rebellion and fight against the Rose.
Mritha: That will be very welcome, <Character>.
Mritha: The thought has already crossed my mind. It was too convenient that both sides attacked at the same time.
The War Room
Mritha: How many did she take with her? Where did she go? How long will she be gone?
Mritha: The Free Dravir have scattered in pockets to keep the whole safe. I don't like thinking that separating has actually made things worse.
Mritha: It was supposed to be easier to hide as a smaller group.
Mritha: I hated having to split the Dravir up. I feel vulnerable, but until the new Central camp is finished, it was the only way to keep them safe.
Mritha: Yes, and we will proudly fight until the end...
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: No, <Character>. Kara is not... available to talk.
Mritha: <Character>. I hope you're ready to do what must be done.
Past Quests - teleports you to Kara SuLema; access to past quests.
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.
- Visit Kara - teleports you to Kara SuLema; access to new quests.
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? If only Kara was here...
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. Gather the patrols, heart sister. We have to move now.
Mritha: Have Marseltha bring him straight here. Keep an eye out for our patrols, heart sister. The Rose is certainly on edge now.
Mritha: Reinforcements, on the eve of our attack on the rebels. This is too perfect...
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, Leon.
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. Kara would be proud. And, this couldn't have come at a better time, Leon.
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: I am about to launch one heck of an attack and that distraction will be brilliant. They will never see you coming...
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?
