The Breaking of Lore


«Scene: a shaking Chaos Realm»

Drakath: She's FREE! The Queen of Monsters has returned… And here I am.

Hero: She IS free. You freed her, and now you don't want to face the consequences.
Hero: Go off. Raise your armies. Reclaim your birthright and power.
Hero: See if you can succeed again when you aren't backed by an infernal She-Beast.
Hero: *I* am going to go save the world. The Elemental Lords know it can't count on YOU.

«The Hero lands outside the Chaos portal»

Hero: Maya! You're safe! What about Artix, Gravelyn, Battleon -

Maya: <Hero>, you're BACK! you've been gone for WEEKS!
Maya: I knew you would come out, but… I was afraid for you.
Maya: The world is falling down around us. I didn't know how long I could last here!
Maya: But - where is Drakath? Did you defeat him? Is he dead?

Hero: No. But we will meet again someday. I'm sure of it.

Maya: The Queen of Monsters is here. Or, at least, her minions are.

Hero: We don't know where the Queen is?!

Maya: No, she vanished shortly after she appeared over Mount Doomskull.
Maya: The Breaking started, and her minions attacked, and she… disappeared.
Maya: Everyone has begun fleeing the continent. Nowhere is safe here.

«Scene: just outside the Chaos Portal»

Hero: So. I know WHAT I need to do. I've got to stop her… I'm just not sure where to begin.

Maya: I have something that will help you. I've had this since you entered the Portal.
Maya: It was brought here to me, for you. You have been summoned.

Hero: … Summoned by whom?

Maya: I can't say. It's forbidden. The prophecy… the Loremaster's code…
Maya: I'm NOT allowed to interfere, no matter how much I want to!
Maya: It is one of the hardest things about being a Loremaster for me.
Maya: We watch. We guide. We serve. We do NOT act.

«The Hero holds up a scroll»

Hero: But… what does it say? I can't read this. It's some sort of code.

Maya: No, not code. It's a message, written in ink that scrambles the letter shapes.
Maya: You'll need to create the counter agent. It's magical.

Hero: In that case… Arcangrove is the best place to go. Right now, at least.

Maya: I would have told you that if I could. Go there; help will be waiting.
