*You and Jaania walk down the hallway of the Ivory Tower. To you, meeting her again after five years in ice and recently rebelling against the Rose felt extremely awkward.*
Jaania: I'm sorry I wasn't here to greet you. How have you found Swordhaven, <Character>?
<Character>: Do we really need to exchange niceties? The last time I saw you it was through a wall of ice you trapped me in.
*Jaania looked at you and then looked away as if your words were a brief wind.*
Jaania: The last time I saw Alexander it was through the wall of ice I was trapped in after his head had been set aflame.
Jaania: Imagine my surprise, after what seemed like eons of being entombed...
Jaania: ... at seeing his grinning skull still burning and seeing all of Lore at the mercy of of the one that set that fire.
<Character>: Xan isn't my ally. I needed his help to break you out so we could all save Warlic.
Jaania: Alexander was ally when you freed me, <Character>. You were working together... all to save the one that threatened to consume Lore with fire.
Jaania: You may have fought Alexander in the past, you may not have liked him, but you chose to put aside your animosity.
Jaania: How was I to know how entangled you were or were not in his madness?
<Character>: You could have asked.
Jaania: So you think I would trust any conversation with maddened fiery shell of a former friend or his apparent ally?
*Both of you approach a large locked door in the hall. Jaania encases her hand in ice while in the direction of the door, causing it to open. You then find yourself in an empty room with her. Nothing, but two blue curtains hiding a veiled object are present.*
Jaania: I loved magic once, <Character>. I found wonder in the Arcane and using it to learn and to help others. That wonder and naivety was ripped away.
Jaania: For all the good that magic can do... it is still a weapon. A weapon that in the wrong hands... with the wrong twist of fate... can destroy everything.
<Character>: I can't believe that. There are still those who use it for good, who use it to defend against those who would destroy Lore.
*Saddened she could not convince you with words, Jaania pulled on the rope to reveal a vision from a magic mirror that showed Swordhaven ablaze. Imps and fire elementals roam the burning city, casting fire around them wherever they go. Insane laughter is heard in the background either from Xan or from Wargoth. The curtains close and you were left shocked.*
<Character>: Is this some kind of sick threat?!
Jaania: It's the remains of Swordhaven... the remains of all of Lore... in a timeline where you failed to break my crystal prison.
Jaania: No. Listen, <Character>...
Jaania: I know you have knowledge of other timelines. I know you know of the Time Travel Fairies.
Jaania: My heart isn't totally frozen. I wish there was a better way but...
Jaania: I've seen both the worst and best that magic has to offer this world, <Character>.
Jaania: I've seen it through that mirror... it's a window to other timelines. And I can view them all.
<Character>: I... I don't believe you. I can't believe you.
Jaania: It doesn't matter if you do or not. I've seen worlds where your cruelty rivaled the Mysterious Stranger...
Jaania: But more often than not you've preserved as a force of good. I wanted you to have that chance in this one as well.
Jaania: You can go.
<Character>: No... wait, this can't be right!
Tipu: <Class>, you were given an order.
Tipu: Do not make it hard.
Ahimsa: Sincere apologies for entering your personal chamber, Lady Jaania. We are here to escort <Class> outside.
Tipu: And it would be best for him/her to come with us... peacefully.
*Having been struck down by a heavy weight upon viewing the mirror, you look at the guards and then at Jaania, whose face is partially veiled. Not wanting to get into a fight you weren't ready for, you cooperate and leave the Ivory Tower. You walk down the Swordhaven streets until Circe's whisper catches your attention.*
*Circe has been awaiting your return to discuss what you've learned while inside the Ivory Tower.*
Circe: Did you... learn anything that I- we- YOU could use? I ment you... obviously.
<Character>: I can't do this right now.
*Still processing what Jaania has shown you, you run away from Circe.*
Circe: HEY! I am talking to you!!!
<Character>: LEAVE ME ALONE!
*The shouting stuns Circe and leaves her speechless, but suspicious.*
<Character>: Just... just leave me be right now.
<Character>: I need to think...
*You continue to run away from Circe—and from Swordhaven—to reflect.*
Circe: . . .
*A few hours later, you remain sitting at the cliffside you were first thawed from and when your journey first began years ago. You ponder about the discussion and possibly your past as well in addition to whether the rebel forces or the Rose have the right guidance for what is best for the world.*
<Character>: What should I do now...?
*Meanwhile, Jaania remains in the chamber with the magic mirror, which displays an image of an older Alexander with a happier future as an accomplished scholar. Jaania laments about the fact that this future was not to be.*
