Outside the Inn

West Side, Near the Eternal Dragon of Time

<Character> (ChronoZ): Greetings, <Character>! How are you doing today? When are you in your timeline right now?
<Character>: Umm, I'm-
<Character> (ChronoZ): No, wait, don't tell me!
<Character> (ChronoZ): I forgot I can't know this. Or I'd go and help you, and Avatar of Time <Character> said I shouldn't.
<Character> (ChronoZ): Sorry, this is a quirk of mine. I absolutely have to help anyone! Sorry! Forget about it!
<Character> (ChronoZ): I'm trying to learn how to manage this urge!
<Character> (ChronoZ): So sorry.
<Character> (ChronoZ): Carry on!

East Side

<Character> (Archivist): Oh, hi me!

<Character> (Archivist): Have you taken on a challenge yet?
<Character> (Archivist): They are a blast!
<Character> (Archivist): You should also speak to the Avatar of Time <Character>. She's one of the founders of this place!
<Character> (Archivist): And so am I!
<Character> (Archivist): And five others!
<Character> (Archivist): Avatar of Time <Character>, Chronomancer <Character>, Chronocorruptor <Character>, Time Killer <Character>...
<Character> (Archivist): Me, the Archivist <Character>, Shadow Walker of Time <Character> (we call him Shadow, he's edgy!), ChronoZ <Character>...
<Character> (Archivist): There was Epoch <Character> as well... but she's not with us anymore...
<Character> (Archivist): *sigh*
<Character> (Archivist): Now I've made myself sad...
<Character> (Archivist): Please excuse me, I need to continue writing my diary...

Inside the Inn

Lower Floor, Entrance

<Character> (Chronomancer): Salutations, <Character>! Please peruse the challenges we have prepared for you!
<Character> (Chronomancer): They were made just for you!
<Character> (Chronomancer): You know what they say, the only one who knows what's best for you is you yourself!

<Character> (Chronomancer): Bahahaha!
<Character> (thinking): Is this a cult...?
<Character> (thinking): Smile and nod.

<Character> (thinking): Just smile and nod...

Lower Floor, Lobby

<Character> (Avatar of Time): Hello again, <Character>. The challenges are in the atrium, you just missed them. Or perhaps you want to talk? I can heal you, as well.

  • Talk
    <Character> (Avatar of Time): What do you wish to know?
    • Again?
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): You've been in this place before. You simply don't remember. None of you do. It's how it's designed.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): You enter, you train, you hone your skills for future endeavours, you talk with other versions of you, you leave, you forget.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): But your body doesn't. Any experience and any loot obtained here stays with you.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Your body remembers, your backpack gets heavier, but you forget. It's very convenient that way.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): And I have to explain it to you all over, and over, and over... again...
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): This is what me, <Character>, <Character>, <Character> and <Character> signed up for... and I endure.

    • Where am I?
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): The Inn at the Edge of Time. The best of us came together to create this pocket dimension, in order to make the other you better.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): It was after one of us died...
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): We swore to make a training arena for other <Character>, so that other you will be prepared for what future, your individual future, holds.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): And yes, we don't refer to us in plural form. <Character> suggested it. It made things confusing.
      <Character>: As if it isn't already...
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): On another note, please don't be alarmed when guests suddenly change. The Inn is in a constant state of flux.

    • Challenges?
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): There are a lot of them. Let me see your number...
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Hmmmmm...

      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Ah.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Number 1337.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): You're still quite new here. More challenges will open up to you in the future. Your future. As in... based on time spent in your timeline.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Time doesn't flow here.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): In here, everything already happened.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): I won't try explaining it, you won't get it.

      <Character> (Avatar of Time): You are one of the... simple <Character>.
      <Character>: I don't like you.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): I know, you said it so many times.

      <Character> (Avatar of Time): I endure, however.

    • Other... me?
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): There is a lot of you here. From all of the timelines. We come in all shapes and sizes. But we share the name and destiny.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Well... not all of us. 96% of us. The other 4% is a different story. We don't let them in here.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): You come and go so frequently it's sometimes hard to keep track of us. But I endure.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Feel free to talk with yourselves.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): Any timeline events information exchange is pointless, though. And no fighting with yourselves in here.
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): There are designated challenges for that.

    • Books?
      <Character> (Avatar of Time): We have a large collection of books that fade in and out of time. Feel free to peruse what's available.

  • Rewind - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.

    Books that can currently be read:

    The Last Stand of Ehr'Ishin

    (Page 1) As my guide led me through the massive gates of Ehr'Ishin, I could feel the cool rush of mana flow over me. I could feel the unmistakable rush - the energizing presence of mana - flow over me.

    Power, that was what they held here, hoarded behind the shining pillars of the temples of the Elements. What used to be temples, I corrected myself.

    (Page 2) Across all the Elemental Plains, there was no bastion of the Exalted as mighty as Ehr'Ishin, with its white walls towering over fields and distant forests, its spires reaching to the heavens. unflinching skies above.

    Despite the ongoing war, word with word of cities falling and refugees flocking every day, there was still a semblance of normalcy. Young families Families browsed markets and children chased their toys between the towering pale alleys.

    (Page 3) Yet soldiers and guards dotted every street corner, every parapet manned by the finest Exalted guards in their black striped armor. An ever-present remainder of the tenuous situation. Not keeping a watch on the city, but waiting for the first sign of attack first sign-any sign-of attack.

    (Page 4) The second thing Therefore, the second thing that hit me after the invigorating flow of mana, was the collective tension in the minds of the Exalted in the air. Sure, they the Exalted could play at living normally, but with the flow of Exalted refugees pouring in around alongside me, there was no question as to how the war fared.

    And everyone knew it. From the smallest child to the oldest guardswoman, the rolling thunderclouds of war were surely making their way to Ehr'Ishin.

    (Page 5) Ah, but I was here for a reason. Even as the alarms were sounded on the walls, and I was rushed forward, and the screams and pleads as the gates were closing as the gates were closing echoed across the panic, and I was pulled from street to back alley, as the sounds of battle engines clashing against elemental monstrosity echoed through the sky, and I was brought to the base of the great spire of Ehr'Ishin-

    (Page 6) The great spire.

    Brilliantly constructed, dependent on the flow of mana to sustain a marvel of Exalted engineering with its great height, it towered over all else in the city. The center of technology and magical research.

    The sole reason Ehr'Ishin was still stand. Barely, from the roars and crunching of the battle outside. But standing. You'd enter and float to the desired floor, and my destination was the very top.

    That research being the sole reason Ehr'Ishin was still standing. Barely from the roars and crunching of the battle outside. But standing. And so I would enter as the city trembled.

    (Page 7) -even as I lifted myself skyward with my escort, reflecting on the rush of researchers and guards desperate to create the next thing that would save the war-armor, weapons, creatures, as they no doubt had been for weeks now since the war began-I sincerely hoped they would succeed, though I knew that there already was an answer.

    And we arrived.

    (Page 8) It was rather gaudy too perfect. They spared no expense letting anyone who saw it know that this was, indeed, the great artillery of the great spire of Ehr'Ishin. Covered in gleaming filigree and design, mostly ornamental, it was no surprise why they were struggling. Too many Celestials and you end up with the prettiest weapon that can't cut butter with no proper grip. Celestials budiling what came out of an Infernal's mind. Story of the Exalted alliance right there.

    (Page 9) But I was here to see it through. But without them, we couldn't have made it far. Together.

    I was here to see it through. To finish my design. To save us from our gods.

    New glyphs and runes were drawn around the artillery, connecting it to the city, the mass of mana available. Threads of mana were snapped, unwoven, and rejoined.

    (Page 10) When the storm And so, when the storm burst and the Elements themselves came through to crush fair Ehr'Ishin, when their flaming boulders and thunderous strikes assailed the walls and shields of the city, here because their pride demanded that they see their own work undone, the cannon was set. There was no use praying that the weapon would work, for it was turned toward upon our creators. I looked down at the city in turmoil-chaotic-in the throes of battle for survival.

    (Page 11) There And there would be survivors. Not here. But elsewhere in the Plains. Those that stayed low in the shadows, in the deepest caves, under the tallest trees. And they would be free.

    We aimed the artillery. I completed my spell.

    (Page 12) As I feel my threads of mana unravelling, I hear surprise, acceptance, surprise, acceptance, fear from the Exalted around me.

    This miracle weapon had a cost to win the war, and power doesn't come cheap. This miracle weapon had a cost to win the war. The power to quell our creators required a source. The people of Ehr'Ishin would defend it with their lives, and push back the onslaught of the Elements.

    As I fade away, I just hope it will be enough.
