A Mysterious Disease
Required: Nothing.
→ Go to Quasus Adyum
YOU: I was wondering if you had any jobs that you needed done?
-Quasus stares deep into your eyes for a moment before speaking.-
Quasus: I will tell you a story, my child.
-Quasus motions for you to sit near kra.-
Quasus: In the early days of the Octarchy, a retiring general was asked by his commanding Vigesimi to find a suitable replacement for himself.
Quasus: To the Vigesimi's great confusion, the general chose his worst enemy as his successor.
Quasus: When queried about his decision, the general explained that he was asked to find the most suitable person for the job, not someone whom he liked personally.
-Quasus again looks silently into your eyes.-
Quasus: Now…
Quasus: you want to do something for me, yes?
Quasus: Well you have arrived at an appropriate time.
Quasus: A friend of Talad has been struck by a rare and life-threatening disease.
Quasus: His best chance of survival lies with a Xacha known as Vladovic Chel-Astra who resides in Ojaveda.
Quasus: Will you help save a life?
YOU: Of course, I can't stand by and not doing anything after hearing that.
Quasus: Then take this letter straight to Vladovic and please, show expediency…
Quasus: for the life of another rests in your hands.
→ Go to Vladovic Chel-Astra
YOU: Quasus sent me to give you this letter, it is most urgent.
Vladovic: What's this?
-Vladovic turns the letter over in his hands before carefully opening it.-
Vladovic: I see..
Vladovic: yes…
Vladovic: I have heard of this condition before.
Vladovic: It is becoming more common amongst those returning from the Stone Labyrinths.
Vladovic: I have a potion here that may help.
Vladovic: It is quite expensive though; six hundred tria actually.
-Vladovic eyes widen suddenly.-
Vladovic: Oh my!
Vladovic: I've just remembered, I need to get this package up to the Shadowcasters at the Eagle Bronze Doors.
Vladovic: It is of the utmost importance: I risk breaching my contract and losing thousands of tria if it is not delivered on time.
Vladovic: If you deliver it for me immediately, on your return I will pay you one thousand tria and you can have the potion for free.
Vladovic: Will you help?
Possible Ways: 2
Way 1:
YOU: No no, I must get the potion first, a life hangs in the balance.
-Vladovic looks deflated for a moment.-
Vladovic: Oh well…
Vladovic: I'm sure that your current task is much more important anyway.
Vladovic: Just give me the six hundred tria and you can take the potion.
YOU: Here are the tria for the potion.
Vladovic: I hope the patient has a rapid recovery.
Vladovic: Farewell, Madam.
→ Go to Quasus Adyum
YOU: I am back with the potion!
-As you approach Quasus, a soothing blue light fills the room.-
Quasus: Talad's light doth shine upon you, child.
Quasus: Take this and bask in the light for a moment.
Way 2:
YOU: Of course, we can't have your name ruined.
Quasus: Sensational!
Quasus: Take this package to Zhaomal and return the receipt to me.
-Vladovic bows.-
→ Go to Zhaomal Shehan
YOU: Here is your package from Vladovic.
-Zhaomal lets a tiny smirk slip.-
Zhaomal: I see Vladovic finally got around to filling our order.
-Zhaomal cuts open the box with a dagger and, after checking its contents, grins widely.-
Zhaomal: Satisfactory effort, Enkidukai.
Zhaomal: Now take this note of assurance and give it to Vladovic.
→ Go to Vladovic Chel-Astra
YOU: Success! Here you go, one note from Zhaomal.
-A relieved expression crosses Vladovic's face.-
Vladovic: Thank you so much, YOU.
Vladovic: The loss of that contract would have been devastating for my business.
Vladovic: Here is your payment and the potion you required.
→ Go to Quasus Adyum
YOU: I am back with the potion!
-A strange darkness descends upon the room as Quasus speaks to you with a tone of despair.-
Quasus: Unfortunately, it is too late.
Quasus: The afflicted died several hours ago.
Quasus: Leave the temple now, but come back another time and remember…
Quasus: do not take everything as gold that shines like gold.
