→ Go to Menita
YOU: Please take these items as a proof of my dedication to Azure Way.
Menita: Dedication, and perseverance.
Menita: They give you balance.
-Menita raises your wand, and gives it a long glance. She takes a long and slow breath, before giving you back the items.-
Menita: Return the items to their owners, as soon as you can.
Menita: They will need them.
-Her eyes become watery, for only a moment.-
Menita: You reached a point where I can give you no more.
Menita: Only the world now can teach you new lessons.
Menita: You are a full Master of the Azure Way now.
Menita: Give me your last adept item, please.
YOU: Here is my cloak, as requested.
-Menita folds the cloak, while her gaze continues to point at you.-
Menita: As a Master of the Azure Circle you have to know some of the secrets of the order, something about our history.
-Menita stares at you, waiting.-
YOU: Continue please, I will listen.
Menita: Your mind is like a pool.
Menita: You and you only, may decide its depth.
Menita: Would you like to know our history, or our secrets?
YOU: I'd like to know about history.
-The lips of Menita hold steady. Her eyes became glassy.-
Menita: It is not the time, yet.
Menita: When you are ready you will find this knowledge.
YOU: Please, tell me about secrets.
Menita: Secrets conceal dangers.
Menita: Only people who proved themselves can manage to keep a secret like the one I'm going to tell you.
Menita: The danger in it can harm many lives, not only your own.
Menita: So you are allowed to talk about it only with the highest levels of the Circles, full masters of every Way.
-Menita tightens her lips, making a short pause.-
Menita: The texts in the Sanctuary hold knowledge about all the Ways, about artifacts of power…
Menita: And it contains the complete version of this secret too.
Menita: The position, even the existence of the Sanctuary, is closed to the citizen.
Menita: Secrets are hidden in other secrets.
Menita: I need your word.
Menita: Promise me you will never share what I am going to tell you.
YOU: I promise, I will keep these secrets.
Menita: The first secret is the Seventh Way.
Menita: Until now, I assume, you know only six Ways, but there is a Seventh.
Menita: The Seventh is the essence of all the other Ways, but is also none of them.
Menita: It is magic without the glyphs created by Talad.
Menita: This is 'Wild' magic, something outside the rules of the Gods.
Menita: Diaboli used it, since they are the only race who cast magic before arriving in Yliakum.
-The tone of Menita grows harder, and colder.-
Menita: Be careful, and pay special attention to my next words.
Menita: Your level of power will give you sense of the existence of the Seventh Way.
Menita: Temptation will strike you.
Menita: And you have to contrast it.
Menita: Otherwise 'Wild' magic will wipe out your very soul.
Menita: You will be put to True Death if the Seventh Way does not destroy you first.
Menita: Is this understood?
YOU: Yes, Mistress Menita.
Menita: The danger bursting out from the Seventh Way overreaches imagination of mortals.
Menita: Two mages attempted to master it until now, and they suffered a fate I would wish on no one.
-Menita pauses, closing her eyes for a moment.-
Menita: Now, I have to tell you about another hidden knowledge.
Menita: Something not even I wish to know, a threat to the existence itself.
Menita: The Circles, especially the Masters, are fighting a war against this Dark entity.
Menita: These battles are hidden to the eye of the people of Yliakum, but you have to know.
Menita: Our enemy is called the BlackFlame.
Menita: Have you ever heard about it?
YOU: No, never.
Menita: I wish to fill the pool of your knowledge.
Menita: But my information could be only a raindrop in the abyss.
Menita: None knows for sure what the BlackFlame is.
Menita: Someone supposes it is a God.
Menita: While others believe it is a force of destruction.
Menita: I haven't the answer to what is the BlackFlame, but I can say that its touch infects and deprives the creations of the other Ways.
Menita: Your path will surely teach you more about this, maybe it will grant you access to the Vault of Ages in Arden.
Menita: Even I had that privilege only once.
Menita: I was allowed to catch a glimpse of what is kept in the Vault of Ages, no more.
Menita: That day I discovered…
-Menita lowers her eyebrows for a moment. When she opens them again her eyes glance with a icy light.-
Menita: Much of the past is hidden, and I did not know why, until my visit in Arden.
-Menita takes a long breath.-
Menita: You will understand, for yourself.
Menita: Not today, but when your time will come.
Menita: So you need only one last thing.
Menita: Proofs hold truth.
Menita: This cloak is a proof, and the truth is you.
Menita: YOU.
Menita: *Your name*, filling it with a new mean.
Menita: A Master.
-Menita puts away the old cloak and opens a sack, taking out a new cloak. She offers it to you.-
Menita: A new cloak for you, a new master.
Menita: Your path now goes beyond me.
-She hands you an amulet.-
Menita: Take this to Levrus, so you will complete this stage of growth.
