A New Discovery
???: Now... there's no need to be hasty. There's clearly been a misunderstanding.
???: Ah, companions of yours! Greetings! I do hope you won't draw your blades on me as well.
???: Stinks? I'll have you know—
???: See, I thought I asked rather politely—
???: Thank you.
Sir Leon: My name is Leon. Sir Leon. I am a MageKnight of—sorry, was a knight of Swordhaven.
Sir Leon: After The Rose took over, King Alteon and some of the more magical knights in his employ had some... disagreements.
Sir Leon: I was searching for a way to approach the Oculus Tower—that is, that Rose tower looming over the landscape...
Sir Leon: ...when I came across these... most merciful ladies.
Sir Leon: With them being of obviously magical persuasion, I thought I could maybe ask for assistance.
Sir Leon: Well, your wings kind of give you away.
Sir Leon: Hold on, how do I know I can trust you?
Sir Leon: Fair enough.
Sir Leon: The Rose is... doing something with the tower.
Sir Leon: All I know is that they're trying to find a way to locate magical creatures and objects from a distance.
Sir Leon: It isn't. Thankfully, for now, they're still only trying. But if they succeed... then...
Sir Leon: As well as anyone or anything else magical within range, yes.
Sir Leon: I was just looking around for a way to approach without being spotted.
Sir Leon: I didn't mean to... "ambush" you. You have my apologies.
Sir Leon: No! ...No, I can't, I have to keep watch, make sure she... make sure The Rose doesn't finish what they've started.
Sir Leon: Here, if you want to help out, there's a small inn, nestled to the south of here, known as The Shears.
Sir Leon: If you have a map, I can mark it for you.
Sir Leon: Find me there, if you want to help.
Sir Leon: ...Understood.
Sir Leon: Thank you for your mercy. And, <Character>, was it?
Sir Leon: I'll await your arrival at The Shears!
Sir Leon: Can I help you, <Class>?
Sir Leon: What do you wish to know?
- Who Are You?
Sir Leon: Sir Leon.
Sir Leon: Once I was a knight of King Alteon, aiding him with issues of a magical nature.
Sir Leon: Now he doubts that which has helped so many....
Sir Leon: Magic.
Sir Leon: I chose not to follow the Rose, which would be fine... but things got personal and so I was exiled.
- You're A Mage?
Sir Leon: A MageKnight... few remain in these times.
Sir Leon: My skills lie with conjuring, creating things, shaping things... to wield them.
Sir Leon: It has other uses besides weaponry, but it's best not to speak of that.
- The Shears?
Sir Leon: That which stems a flowers growth.
Sir Leon: A place for all who stand against the Rose. To hide. To plan. And to strike when possible.
Sir Leon: I've yet to meet her, but I've learned much of the Resistance.
Sir Leon: Sadly, I cannot aid in your quest whilst my personal endeavors lay unfinished. Forgive me, <Class>.
Sir Leon: I have a quest that needs to be completed....
Heal & potions - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
- Oculus Tower
Sir Leon: If you wish to assist in telling Crest of our quest to rescue her... I will not refuse your help.
- Oculus Shard
Sir Leon: There are more of these Oculus devices out there.
Sir Leon: Much smaller and weaker, but they can be carried around and used to seek out nearby magic.
Sir Leon: With your aid <Character>, we could really help make a difference.
- Oculus Orb
Sir Leon: You've found enough shards. Let's see if Crest can reform a whole orb!
Sir Leon: <Character>, we need to talk.
Sir Leon: It's time to make our final move, <Character>.
- Tournament of Champions! - teleports you to Swordhaven (Book 3)'s Quest Board.
- Sanctuary's Return - opens 'Sanctuary's Return' quest interface; requires completion of Tournament of Champions Part 2 / (Easy);
Add to group - invites Sir Leon as Guest A.
Leon: Listen <Character>, you may have seen the tower looming over the horizon. The Rose have been constructing it ever since Alteon sided with them.
Leon: The tower was heavily guarded, but lately I've scouted less and less soldiers, despite it being near completion.
Leon: According to these plans I acquired before leaving Swordhaven, atop the Tower lies an Oculus.
Leon: This device is meant to focus a source of magical energy and use it to search out magical creatures and artifacts so they can be captured.
Leon: It may not be that simple, but yes. We must... interrupt the source of the focus, then find a way to disable it.
Leon: The guards that still remain seem preoccupied, so now is our best time to strike.
Leon: I'll deal with that.
Leon: <Character>, just make sure to take out the guards.
Leon: Then we're ready. Let's go.
Leon: We must get to the top <Character>! I HAVE TO SAVE HER BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!
Leon: CREST!! What have they done to you!
Leon: You're safe now Crest.
Leon: She can explain things later, but we need to leave.
Search for Refugees
Leon: Alright Crest, your turn.
Leon: As good as new!
Leon: Time to find out.
Leon: I have not the strength to command such an army, their spirits are low and us alone will not be enough.
Leon: Perhaps there is...
Leon: Dracelix, <Character>, come with me, we must leave immediately.
Leon: Here, the remains of my Order.
Leon: This temple was once the Jewel of these lands.
Leon: Some day it shall be once more.
Leon: To find a stone...
Leon: Yes, a Runestone, very few exist in these lands, and far fewer still hold their power.
Leon: A single runestone would be enough to make a difference, should we find one.
Leon: There it is! The Runestone!
Leon: This, my friends, is far more useful to us than a few additional soldiers.
Leon: This, my friends, is no elegant paperweight. It is a weapon.
Leon: And, it will prove to the resistance in Sulen'Eska that we can be a valuable asset to their movement.
Leon: This stone, what it can- no, what it WILL do- will prove to the resistance in Sulen'eska that we can be a valuable asset to their movement.
Leon: Look, we have a lot of things to accomplish with few resources. We MUST show everyone on Lore that the Rose is vulnerable.
Leon: This will also show everyone in Greenguard that the Rose is vulnerable. That they are not unstoppable.
Leon: If we can't prove that we have a chance against them, we will lose ourselves completely and utterly.
Leon: If we can't prove that we have a chance against them, then there is no hope for those who are unable to fight for themselves.
Leon: This tower, here, looms in the distance imposing their control.
Leon: The Oculus Tower, here, looms in the distance as an imposing symbol of Rose control.
Leon: It's a powerful symbol, and if we can manage to damage it beyond use then everyone will see that the Rose can be broken.
Leon: It's a powerful symbol, and if we can manage to damage it beyond use, then everyone around will see that the Rose can be broken.
Leon: Yes, as a matter of fact.
Leon: This stone is the key to this plan. With its power, I have full confidence in our success. We simply need to take it to the top of the tower.
Leon: This, fine knights, is our answer.
Leon: I believe, fine knights, that taking down this tower will prove beyond a doubt that our goals are aligned with those in Sulen'Eska.
Leon: Well then, boys, I believe that's settled it. Time to move.
Leon: Precisely! A handful of Rose soldiers is no match for us. That settles it, then. It's time to move.
Leon: I think we can start to make a difference...
Leon: Done. Let's move out!
Leon: Dragon Rider Mritha.
Leon: Everyone MUST see that the Rose isn't all-powerful. They can fall. They can be hurt.
Leon: I would agree, Dragon Rider Mritha. It was my aim to to join your resistance. My knights, and my own abilities are at your service.
Leon: I like the sound of this...
Leon: I am glad to hear it. With our combined forces, the Rose won't know what hit them!
Leon: Do we have the plan nailed down? Is there anyone here that thinks that they cannot go through with this?
Leon: Akanthus knows we will be coming. He always knows, no matter how well we plan.
Leon: The tower's destruction will have given us what we need, yes, but Akanthus just knows... Be prepared for anything. Do not be deceived.
Leon: Kara has been captive for a long time. If she is not responsive, or is not herself, don't let that deter you. All we need to do is get her home.
Leon: Svera will take care of everything from there.
Leon: Lady SuLema!
Leon: You are a monster. You are everything the Rose is and more.
Leon: No one is useless!
Leon: I will free her.
Leon: I have friends. I have allies. I have what I need to get her back. Stand aside.
Leon: So be it.
Leon: Lady SuLema... are you we-
Leon: Let's get her back home to Svera. Her sister will know what to do and how to get these damned things off of her.
An Uncertain Future
Leon: Akanthus is royally ticked off at all of us right now. He's unpredictable and looking to lash out.
Leon: Be careful. We should make our way to Espina Rosa.
Leon: Dracelix and Navon will take half our group and go up to Espina Rosa. Gordy, you and I will take the other half and guard Sulen'Eska.
Leon: Get there, learn and return, got it?
A New Discovery
Leon: Seven hundred and forty gold for archery supplies?
Leon: No, no, that can't possibly be right...
Leon: <Character>! Good to see you!
Leon: I might as well turn myself into The Rose at this point.
Leon: No, but the logistics of maintaining a functioning would-be army would almost convince me.
Leon: How can I help?
Leon: Ah, that. You would better have a look at the answer yourself.
Leon: They are.
Leon: A letter came with them when they appeared at The Shears which I suggest you read. It's addressed to you.
Leon: Your guess is as good as mine. I checked the coordinates on the map, but it doesn't lead to any known Rose outposts or towns.
Leon: Just an area just shy of the coast to the West. There is nothing there that I know of.
Leon: Well... this is definitely the place.
Leon: It doesn't look like anyone or anything is here.
Leon: What a long way to come for n-
Leon: An illusion?
Leon: How deep is it? Can you see anything down there?
Leon: That has to be the hidden outpost! Can you open them?
Leon: Then either someone must have come through recently...
Leon: More or less.
Leon: ... And miss out on all the action?
Leon: I am a man of action as much as tactics, <Character>!
Leon: Hold on. I am coming down with you.
Leon: ... What is this?!
Leon: I have no idea. He was locked behind some kind of containment... thing... and then it just-
Leon: It doesn't look like taking the prisoner and making a run for it is an option anymore.
Leon: Our foes want to crush the competition by way of enhancements.
Leon: Ready when you are, <Character>!
Leon: Your game is up, Rose Agent. Tell us what the Rose is doing here.
Leon: Forget about him for now! We need to get this man out of here!
Leon: He hasn't stirred at all since we found him... I think he is in need of serious medical attention!
Leon: This place is going to come down in mere moments!
Leon: *Huff* *Huff* We have to make it back to The Shears before nightfall!
Leon: More Rose are bound to come around here soon enough... We shouldn't stay near this place.
Leon: Are you still reeling from what that Rose soldier said? I can understand that not being pleasant, but...
Leon: Good to hear.
