*The scene shows an undead tog falling to the ground in the Third Level, then pans up to Sofist.*
Sofist: That should be the last of those wretch...
Sofist: Private! Patrol status report!
Private Bradley: No injured among the Patrol, Sir.
Private Bradley: Although Vince claims the cries of one particular Barrat wounded his poetic soul...
Vince: ... Laughing like it's all just a game. Not caring while my soul cries out in pain. What is your game? WHAT IS YOUR GAME?!
Vince: I-I-I mean... I'll shut up now...
Sofist: How are the conditions ahead, Bradley? Have any paths shifted since the last Patrol?
*Private Bradley opens his agenda.*
Private Bradley: None in this section of the jails so far... More I can't say, Sir.
Private Bradley: There is too much interference from the wards to pick up on deeper sections of the Level.
*A gust of wind blows from a nearby cavern.*
Sofist: That wretched wind again...
Sofist: All right. The Patrol is moving out! Remember to stay close...
Sofist: It's dark and hard to see down here and if you lose sight of the Patrol, you risk getting lost in the maze of pathways... or worse.
*You look unnerved, as though you are afraid of the eeriness.*
*A telepathic sound calls out to you briefly, before Sofist yells.*
<Character>: Huh? What?
Sofist: What's wrong with you? Don't tell me you are afraid of the dark?
<Character>: Of course not, Sir!
Sofist: Then stop acting like it! I'm assigning you to rearguard. Your job is to stay behind the cart and make sure nothing sneaks up on the Patrol.
Sofist: We don't usually come across any unchained monsters from behind during our second run... but you can never be too careful.
Sofist: Don't let me down!
Sofist: Elite Patrol! Move out!
*Sofist and the other Elite Patrol members head off in one direction, while you break from the group and head into the nearby cavern.*

Once you reach the deeper section:
<Character>: A dead end?
<Character>: Oh? Hmm....
*You pick up a map that's on the ground.*
<Character>: Ah, it's a map. Perfect! Now I won't get lost.
*You run back out, and then continue running around in circles.*
<Character>: Oh.... for crying out loud!
<Character>: There's no doubt about it... at this point I'm sure completely lost. I've probably been running around for hours, maybe longer...
<Character>: I really wish I could tell... But it seems you lost track of the time down here. It feels like it's been an eternity.
<Character>: Oh, come on, <Character>! Thin-
*A deep chuckle echoes from nearby.*
???: So... it truly is you...
???: But of course, it could only be you... it had to be.
???: Just as the Wind had told...
<Character>: The Wind?
???: Yes, the Wind... YOUR Wind.
<Character>: My Wind? I'm sorry, I don't underst-
*A light flashes from a distance.*
???: The Wind tells everyone’s story. Carrying their words, taking them away...
???: Though the words are taken away, their echoes remain. Echoes in the wind...
???: Make up your Wind. If you can hear the echoes, the whispers of that Wind, then you can hear the bearer of that Wind...
<Character>: Wait... you're saying you can hear everything I or anyone ever said concerning myself?
???: No... Not everything. Some things, but not everything...Too much sound, too much noise…
???: Like the noise of a storm. The wind blowing through many, many leaves of trees. A choir’s many voices...
???: ...all come together to make a song yet every voice is distinct and different, no matter how small a difference...
???: Like a busy tavern lively in the night. Only the loudest of things said, those said again and again or said by many can be heard easily.
???: The stronger echoes.
<Character>: Ok... and what does my Wind say?
*The voice lets out another deep chuckle.*
???: Very many echoes... A storm unlike others. A great strength but not simply in terms of skill.
???: Hailed “hero” from as far as Ostveld reaches Ovungu Zoyo...
???: Many good a word, praise, thanks and cheers said to your name... Willed or not, a friend to many. The many different.
???: Caretaking of many souls both big and small.
???: The burden of caring for them but not being able to save them all.
???: Great titles given. Red Dragon Slayer. Undead Breaker. Vanquisher of the Great Darkness…
???: More recently, a similar glee to a welcomed return. Once thought to be lost... has been found again.
???: But not all echoes... ring so well.
???: An absence felt... painfully… Questions... cries of misery, despair, indignation...
???: Where have you gone? Why have you gone? Why are you not helping us? Protecting us? Defending us?
???: Why did you leave us? Why did you forsake us? Why... Why did you abandon us?
???: So much changes... in only a single year. And you, <Character>... have been gone for many a one.
<Character>: I take it that you're the mage?....
Elryn: You are curiously well informed.
*A silhouette of Elryn appears from the light.*
Elryn: Now indulge me, <Character>...
Elryn: Just what in the Avatars’ names are you doing in the dark underbelly of the Runed Fortress?
*Scene fades to black.*
