Tomix: <Character>, I've gotten a letter from a friend in Atrea. Finish whatever you're doing and meet me there.
*Tomix is in the Sandsea, watching Atrea. The city is being attacked by catapults*
<Character>: What's up?
Tomix: As you can see, Atrea is under siege. The Rose is trying to either capture it or destroy it, I'm not sure.
<Character>: Remind me, why are we going to Atrea? And how exactly are we going to get there without a gryph?
Tomix: The letter I've received said that atealans can help reinforce the ship's structure, making it more resistant to the void currents.
<Character>: The void has currents?
Tomix: Anyway, I... think I have figured out how to get to Atrea. We have to get to the Rose encampment.
<Character>: Ok... why?
Tomix: Have a little faith.
<Character>: So, are we good to go?
Tomix: No, I think it will be safer to go after nightfall. We are to easy to spot right now, and I didn't find any caves for us to hide in.
Tomix: We wait here until it gets dark, and hope Rose scouts won't notice us. Can you set up a campfire?
*After nightfall, a Rose scout notices the little campfire*
*Meanwhile, the two heroes are sitting by the fire*
<Character>: So... know any ghost stories?
Tomix: Ghost stories? Really, <Character>? Can't we just wait in silence?
<Character>: Oh come on, one story before we leave.
Tomix: Eh, alright...
Tomix: Once upon a time, there was a man named Tanislav. He lived in a small village called Mortem. He had a wife and a child.
Tomix: The child's name was Roirr.
Tomix: Sadly, Roirr was suffering from a terrible illness that was slowly killing him.
Tomix: Over the years Tanislav tried multiple methods to cure his son, but everything failed.
Tomix: One day, Tanislav heard word that a strange merchant, dressed in a cloak black as night, had come to village.
Tomix: The stranger, asked by Tanislav if he could cure his little boy, sold him an old parchment.
Tomix: The scroll described a forbidden ritual of liquifying one's life essence into a medicine.
Tomix: After years of fruitless attempts at saving Roirr's life, Tanislav was desperate enough to perform the ritual.
Tomix: He sacrificed his wife, however the medicine made from her life essence was not strong enough to cure the boy.
Tomix: And thus Tanislav, driven by his insane devotion to saving his son, moved him to a safe place, and drew a ritual circle...
Tomix: ... surrounding the entire village, and watched from afar as every villager was liquified into the remedy.
Tomix: He then poured into his son's throat, and killed himself in remorse.
Tomix: The boy lived.
<Character>: I've got chills.
Tomix: Yeah, the Sandsea is cold at night.
<Character>: No, I mean from the... anyway, what happened next? There is a next part, right?
Tomix: Oh yes, there is. The boy, Roirr, was the First Weaver.
Tomix: All those villagers became the first Elemental Spirits and Roirr learned how to, for a lack of better term, "use" them.
Tomix: He grew up, had four children, and they were the founders of the Four Weaving Families.
Tomix: Baltael, Pandora and Oyva. Soulweaving, chaosweaving and soulsmithing.
Tomix: There are many theories about the fourth child, but all of them leads to the same outcome, he or she was the founder of Murks.
<Character>: That's fascinating!
Tomix: I'm sure it is, but we have things to do, come on.
*The two are heading towards Atrea. Suddenly, Tomix stops*
<Character>: Why did you stop?
Tomix: Can't you hear it?
*The character tries listening for a second*
<Character>: Hear what?
*Tomix looks terrified, and dodges a big boulder at the last moment*
<Character>: Avatars! Are you alright Tomix?
Tomix: Oh no, we've been spotted! Alright, try not to get killed, meet you at the Rose camp.
<Character>: Meet you at... why... WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?!
Tomix: Don't worry, I got this.
*Tomix then runs towards the camp and the catapult, using his soulweaving powers, leaving the hero behind*
Defeat the Rose members who stand in your way. The main challenge, though, are the big boulders that constantly hit you on your way.
*Finally, the character meets Tomix again. He's sitting on a catapult*
Tomix: There you are, alright, here's the plan...
<Character>: No no no no NO! What the heck was that?!
Tomix: I figured they'd try to hit the quicker target, so splitting up was a good option. I even defeated a few mana hunters to make your path safer.
<Character>: That's rubbish! They'd try to hit the slow moving target first! You could try and help me in battles once in a while!
Tomix: Okay, okay, I will from now on, happy? Anyway, the Rose reinforcements are coming so here's the plan.
Tomix: I launch myself on the catapult towards Atrea...
<Character>: ... and me?
Tomix: I can't shout my ideas in front of the incoming enemy force, can I? Come closer.
<Character>: I'm not moving until you tell me what you're planning.
Tomix: Act like an adult <Character>!
<Character>: Well I'm sorry for being skeptical, but I know where this is going!
Tomix: <Character>, for the love of... just come here!
<Character>: Promise you won't do what I'm thinking you will?
Tomix: I promise.
*The character comes closer. Tomix grasps him/her*
*The catapult then launches them both to Atrea*
<Character>: But you saaaaaaaaaid....
Tomix: I lieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed!
