*You battle various elementals en route to your faction. Once there, a giant whale-like warbeast emerges from the Swordhaven rift; a large sphere of light illuminates within the warbeast's mouth, and sand begins to rain down upon Swordhaven.*
Vseslava: That wasn't us.
Ostromir: This is stupid... We need more time!
<Character>: Knights, please, stand down.
Knight (1): They summoned that thing from the Rift! We have to stop them from bringing more through!
<Character>: That monstrous creature wasn't the fault of The Golden Hand!
<Character>: There was something... similar that I fought out at the Sandsea rift!
<Character>: The Golden Hand wasn't around for that. This isn't their fault.
Knight (1): You say that, <Character>, but you've been chatting with them this whole time.
Knight (2): How do we know you aren't in league with these... Magesters?
<Character>: Look, I'm as surprised as you all are. Maybe if we all calm down, Vseslava and Ostromir can... provide some context for this?
Ostromir: ...Waste of breath...
Vseslava: Look. You've all just encountered a... what's the word?
Vseslava: Help me out here, Ostromir.
Ostromir: A Tytan.
<Character>: A Titan?!
Vseslava: Correct, a Tytan. They are rare, obviously massive, monstrosities that preside over the... locations on the other side of the rifts.
Ostromir: We couldn't control them if we wanted!
Vseslava: These creatures change the world around them.
Vseslava: That's our current theory at least. It's also possible that they are a product of their locations.
Ostromir: Regardless, we've been seeing the effects of this creature and or the location of this creature's origin passing through the rift.
Vseslava: Unfortunately, it seems we were too late to bring it under control.
Ostromir: Stupid machine!
Vseslava: Now, does that answer all your questions? Can we please get back to work?
Knight (3): So... if you get control of the rift, does this, uh, Titan... Does it return back to where it came from?
Vseslava: Unfortunately, no.
Knight (1): Then we're doomed!
Knight (2): What's going to happen to Swordhaven?
Knight (3): It's too late!
<Character>: You can't give up now! Swordhaven is depending on you!
<Character>: You all protect The Golden Hand while they wrest control of the Rift.
<Character>: I'll see what I can do about this Titan.
<Character>: Maybe I can get in touch with the Vind and the Rose and we can form a plan.
Ostromir: That's probably the best decision for now.
Knight (2): Keep working, Magester.
Vseslava: Blah, blah. Don't take too long, <Character>, these fools are already impatient.
Ostromir: Look, this is an intricate magical process, the details of which would tie your shriveled excuse for a brain in knots and—
Vseslava: Take care, <Character>. We'll set up camp here and continue working. And I'll make sure Ostromir doesn't explode.
<Character>: Look, Knights of Swordhaven. I know you distrust The Golden Hand, but I trust them and I promised to help them.
<Character>: If they do anything wrong, I'll take full responsibility.
<Character>: Just please continue to protect them while they do their work.
Knight Captain: Understood, <Character>. But if they do anything out of line—
<Character>: Then it's on me.
