Dialogue

*Inside the chamber, Jaania sits beside Princess Brittany who lies unconscious; Jaania uses her healing magic on Princess Brittany, while Akanthus stands watching.*

Jaania: This is so bizarre.
Jaania: With each day, she looks better after the treatment, but when we check in later, she appears worse.
Jaania: I can't figure out what's causing it.
Akanthus: Have you considered that she's being poisoned?
Jaania: It crossed my mind, yes, but that would be impossible. Only you, me and the king have access to this chamber.
Akanthus: Hmm.
Jaania: I'm worried she's not going to make it...
Jaania: I can't have that, not with how little Victoria trusts me.
Jaania: Do you know where the king is?
Akanthus: Lady Jaania, you know where he is.
Jaania: ...
Akanthus: Say the word and—
Jaania: I will not be raiding Kara's little... resistance.
Jaania: If we return the king against his wishes, the people of Swordhaven may turn against us.
Jaania: Besides, assisting the knights in their search has garnered much goodwill that we should not hasten to squander.
Jaania: I still don't understand why you said Alteon was kidnapped.

*Akanthus pauses to think of a suitable answer.*

Akanthus: I was mistaken, my Lady. I apologize sincerely for my inaccurate report.

*Jaania silently accepts this reasoning.*

Jaania: With Victoria as acting queen, things may get a little... complicated. We've bought some time and favor, but I don't know if it will be enough...
Jaania: But with the successful establishment of our research base, and all of the new Fissure research, I do feel quite reinvigorated.
Jaania: Have you read my notes yet? What do you think of my plan?
Akanthus: A spell that can envelop the entire mana core, cutting out its influence...
Akanthus: It sounds... like a temporary solution.

Akanthus: We can't afford temporary—
Jaania: Thank you for your input.

*Akanthus understands Jaania will not reconsider her plans.*

Jaania: It will work.

Jaania: Imagine...
Jaania: Every new generation on Lore will be cut from the devastating effects of magic indoctrination...
Jaania: ... and every existing generation, until they die out, will be unable to tap into mana... but still be able to enjoy life.
Jaania: A life free of all the torment of magic. A life where they will never experience what I, and countless of others, did.
Jaania: The perfect, elegant solution.

Jaania: A brand new world...

*Akanthus does not indulge Jaania with his agreement.*

Jaania: Have the gnomes been cooperating?
Akanthus: They are... problematic.
Jaania: No doubt. And it's up to me to rebuild the trust that you have so foolishly ruined.
Jaania: You and your division went out of line, and now I'm paying for it.
Jaania: Always me... paying for everything.

Jaania: It's exhausting...
Jaania: And now I need the gnomes! I need an airship! And they are the only ones who have the knowledge to construct it.
Akanthus: My apologizes. I tried my best to follow in your footsteps—
Jaania: You tried, but you took the wrong path. I expect better of you, Akanthus.
Jaania: Stay here and monitor Brittany.
Jaania: I have to continue my research AND deal with your fallout.
Jaania: *mumble* It's like the entire world is against me...

*Jaania leaves the chamber.*

Akanthus: ...
Akanthus: It's not against you... it just doesn't care about you. Or anyone.

*Meanwhile, you are still in Nieboheim, at the Heroes' Guild.*

<Character>: The "Guild of Heroes", eh?
<Character>: Not too shabby!
<Character>: Excuse me, could you tell me everything you know about the Magesterium?
Zvezdan: Who are you?
<Character>: <Character>. I'm a hero!

*Zvezdan looks down on the registry paper.*

Zvezdan: You're not in the registry.
<Character>: Oh, I'm... not from here.
Zvezdan: No work, no talk.
Zvezdan: Register as a hero, do a job, and then we can chat.
<Character>: That's fair!
<Character>: Hmm, let's see.

*Pinned on the quest board are various notes of quests which you can choose to embark on.*

<Character>: Oh! I'll take the escort mission!

<Character>: Those are my favorite!
Zvezdan: ...Right. For that particular mission... You must meet with the pepper merchant at the gates and escort her to Sul.

  • Pepper Merchant joins you as Guest A.

    *You defeat several monsters along the path before reaching Sul. Back in Swordhaven, Jaania stands in front of her table, deeply focused on studying the mana core at the Fissure.*

    Jaania: ... if it's enveloped in a barrier, then what would be the effect on the connection between...
    Jaania: ... however, if the core's influence is cut out, wouldn't it mean the same for everything else... ?

    *Jaania ponders this theory.*

    Jaania: I don't know.
    Jaania: There aren't even any books on the subject. If scholars have been considering this from the wrong angle...
    Jaania: There has to be somethin—

    *All of a sudden, a spark of magic appears behind Jaania which catches her by surprise.*

    Jaania: What?!

    *The magic intensifies.*

    Jaania: No...

    *It appears to be Warlic and Xan, who have arrived in Jaania's chamber using teleportation magic.*

    Xan: Hello... Jaania!

    *Jaania looks infuriated by their arrival.*

    Jaania: Leave.
    Xan: No need to be so cold, hahaha!

    *Jaania gives Xan a disapproving look, then turns around, attempting to ignore them while continuing her studies.*

    Warlic: Hello, Jaania...
    Xan: Did you like the flowers I sent? Hahaha, good memories!
    Xan: And look!
    Xan: We're best buds now!
    Xan: And I'm normal again, hahaha!

    *Jaania continues to ignore Xan.*

    Xan: Everything is back to normal!

    *Jaania continues to ignore Xan.*

    Xan: Hahaha!

    *Warlic appears worried about how Xan will react to Jaania's apparent disinterest.*

    Xan: Hah... ha...
    Xan: W-why are you ignoring me?

    *Jaania continues to ignore Xan.*

    Jaania: ... the spell will take a while to cast, but if there's no way to secure the aftermath...
    Warlic: Spell? What are—
    Xan: SHUT UP, WARLIC!!!
    Xan: Jaania!
    Xan: Please, look at me!
    Xan: Don't you see me? I have a face now! And everything is like it was before, in school!
    Xan: Remember?
    Xan: Everything... is like before...
    Xan: We're good now...
    Xan: And Warlic's good!
    Xan: Like old times!
    Jaania: ... there cannot be any unforeseen complications...

    Jaania: ... it would be risky...

    *Xan is trying to keep it together.*

    Warlic: Xan... I told you—
    Xan: LOOK AT ME!!!

    *Jaania continues to ignore Xan.*

    Xan: Look... look... don't ignore me.
    Xan: Please.
    Xan: I did this for you!
    Xan: I changed... for you.
    Xan: Can't you see?!
    Xan: I put aside everything. I even worked with Warlic. No more revenge, really really!
    Xan: For you.
    Xan: I'm...
    Xan: I'm sorry?
    Xan: I'll be good now!

    *Jaania finally acknowledges Xan's presence by uttering three simple words...*

    Jaania: I'm busy.
    Jaania: Leave.
    Xan: You're...

    *Warlic understands his plan has not worked, and they are not welcome in Jaania's presence.*

    Warlic: Xan, we should leave.
    Xan: No...
    Xan: No!
    Xan: NO!!!
    Xan: I DID THIS FOR YOU!
    Xan: DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT TOOK!?
    Xan: DO YOU THINK I WANTED TO FORGIVE WARLIC?!
    Xan: I DIDN'T!

    Xan: I DESPISE HIM!!!

    *Jaania glances back in Xan's direction without turning around.*

    Xan: I LOVE YOU!
    Jaania: My Alexander died in that basement.

    *Xan now has tears streaming down his face.*

    Jaania: I do not care for love. Or for you, Alexander. Or you, Warlic.

    Jaania: Not anymore.
    Jaania: I am on the verge of something great. And you are inconveniencing me.
    Jaania: Leave... please.

    *Xan appears to have lost his composure. Warlic's eyes dart from Xan to Jaania and back.*

    Warlic: Xa—
    Xan: Ha...
    Xan: Hahahahaha...
    Xan: Hahahahahahahahaha!
    Warlic: Alex—

    *Xan is triggered by Jaania's words and starts burning incessantly, letting the fire envelop him once more.*

    Warlic: No!

    Warlic: Alexander!
    Jaania: No!

    Jaania: My research!

    *Xan's inferno stills for a moment, only to explode and grow even stronger as blue flames engulf his body, turning what was once his human appearance into his skeletal look.*

    Warlic: IT'S GOING TO BE ALRIGHT!

    Warlic: ALEX, STOP!

    *Xan continues to burn.*

    Warlic: ALEX!

    *Xan disintegrates the last of the flesh off his body, unleashing a massive explosion; the impact of which is so large that it destroys the top portion of Swordhaven's Ivory Tower. Back in Azaveyr, you seemingly felt the impact of the event.*

    <Character>: *shudder*
    <Character>: I have a sinking feeling that something terrible just happened.

    *You pause for a moment to process this unsettling feeling.*

    <Character>: Huh...
    <Character>: Well, job's done, time to get back and become an official hero!

    *Warlic and Jaania saved themselves with their protective magic shields; Xan kneels, now just a skeleton engulfed in burning white flames, with his heart still beating. He is about to fall backwards as a result of his weakened state, but Warlic manages to catch him.*

    Warlic: Alex...
    Warlic: No...
    Warlic: W-what... what have I done.
    Jaania: He did it to himself.
    Warlic: He was in pain!

    Warlic: I had to help him...
    Jaania: Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
    Warlic: Alex, talk to me!
    Warlic: Alex!
    Alexander: Haaaaaa...

    *All Xan can muster is a maniacal laugh.*

    Alexander: Haaaaaaaaaa...
    Warlic: He hoped... I...

    *Warlic teleports away with his deformed companion. Jaania seems relieved that they're gone.*

    Jaania: Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Jaania: Let her have this little resistance group. Kara doesn't bother me anymore.
    Jaania: Besides, I know that the king is in good hands. He'll most likely recover and come back sooner or later.
    Jaania: I still don't understand why you said he was kidnapped.

    *Akanthus pauses to think of a suitable answer.*

    Akanthus: I have been mistaken, my Lady. It's only human.
