*You, Mritha, Bajacu', Melissa, and Niki are in the Sulen'Eska meeting area; a Wind Elf, Svera, explains the current situation.*
Svera: Kara has gathered you here because she has learned of more strikes against the people that we love and protect.
Svera: She, unfortunately, is not here and has asked that I inform you of the situation.
Melissa: Where is Kara? I was hoping to speak with her regarding the prison?
Svera: Melissa, she regrets not being here for you, considering the amount of time since you last met.
Svera: But, she received intelligence reports that something very valuable to all of us has been found.
Niki: And what would be that valuable that she would miss a planning session? It's not like her.
Svera: She has gone to retrieve the floor and defense plans for Espina Rosa, the prison that Melissa has been trying to reach.
Mritha: How many did she take with her? Where did she go? How long will she be gone?
Svera: I cannot tell you where she went, as I do not know. I don't know how long she will be gone either. And-
Bajacu': Alone she has gone for what she seeks. Very unwise of her.
<Character>: What?! She went alone? Why would she do that?
<Character>: Surely going into enemy territory, since I know we all assume she is breaking into a Rose facility, is the last thing she should be doing.
Svera: I cannot speak for her, <Character>. I tried to dissuade her. She would not be moved.
Melissa: Figures she would do something like this. It's what I would do in her place. Now, then, Svera, why are we here?
Svera: Like I said, she received intel on movements of the Rose against our people. Everyone, including Sulen'eska's residents are in danger.
Svera: Melissa's constant harassment of the Rose around Swordhaven has caused an uproar and an offensive apparently has been launched.
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.
Niki: Likewise, the Clawkin have gone deeper into the places where they make their home.
Svera: We must protect our own. If we meet the Rose, instead of letting them come to us first, we can buy Kara time. It will throw them off.
<Character>: Yes, but what if they expect us to meet them instead?
Melissa: What are you saying? Are you insinuating that perhaps the Rose will have an insider telling them when we are moving?
<Character>: At this point? I wouldn't put it past anyone to switch sides.
<Character>: We've already seen one defect from the Rose, and rumour has it there are more.
<Character>: As much as I would like to say that this could never happen to us, it can.
Svera: <Character>, Kara wanted you to know that we have appreciated all that you have done.
Svera: We hope that, though this has been a rough awakening, that you continue to be a strong help in Lore's hour of need.
<Character>: Yes, this has been... A different world than when I was set aside and frozen. There was so much more to Lore than I ever realised.
<Character>: I guess I was so busy trying to save Lore from all the people who rose up against us...
<Character>: ... that I just didn't have time to learn about those outside the human realm.
<Character>: I am glad I have. Thank you all for your patience.
Niki: Well, then, our work is half done. Now, if we could just get the rest of the world to open their eyes.
<Character>: Whatever you need of me, I will do. Let's get rid of the Rose and return Lore to what it was...
<Character>: With the knowledge that humans aren't the only people around!
