→ Go to Govell Mihdren
YOU: Here are the items, as requested.
Govell: Dedication and perseverance gave you wisdom.
Govell: You reached a point where I can give you no more.
Govell: Only the world now can teach you more lessons.
Govell: You are a full Master of the Crystal Way.
-Govell takes the Blue Way bracers and examines them carefully. Then he assents, slowly.-
Govell: I chose to become a mage because of my father.
Govell: He was a Blue Way Master.
Govell: But I answered another call, the call of the Crystal Way.
Govell: Sometimes I think about what I'd become otherwise.
-Govell takes a long and slow breath, before giving you back the items.-
Govell: Return these to their owners, as soon as you can.
Govell: They will need them.
Govell: Give me your last Adept item, please.
YOU: Here, take my robe.
-Govell folds the cloak, while his eyes look in yours.-
Govell: As a Master of the Crystal Circle you are allowed to learn about our history, and our secrets too.
Govell: Are you interested to hear them?
YOU: Yes, please.
Govell: Very well.
Govell: I was sure of your interest.
Govell: Would you like to talk about our history?
-Govell half closes his eyes-
Govell: …
Govell: or about our secrets?
YOU: Tell me about the history.
-Govell takes a breath, preparing to talk. But he stops before beginning, and makes a long sigh.-
Govell: It is not the time, yet.
Govell: When you are ready you will find this knowledge.
YOU: I'd like to know about secrets, please.
Govell: The secrets I want to tell are for your ears, and for very few others.
Govell: Only people who proved themselves can manage to keep a secret like the one I'm going to tell you.
Govell: The danger in it can harm many lives, not only your own.
Govell: So you are allowed to discuss them only with the highest levels of the Circles.
Govell: Full masters of every Way.
-Govell makes a pause, looking in your eyes.-
Govell: The texts in the Sanctuary withholds knowledge about all the Ways, about artifacts of power…
Govell: And it contains the complete version of this secret too.
Govell: The position, even the existence of the sanctuary, is closed to the citizen.
Govell: Secrets hidden in other secrets.
Govell: I need your word.
Govell: Tell me you will never share this knowledge outside of the Masters of the Circles.
YOU: If this is your wish, I promise you to keep them.
Govell: The first secret is the Seventh Way.
Govell: Until now I assume you know only six Ways, but there is a Seventh.
Govell: The Seventh is the essence of all the other Ways, but is also none of them.
Govell: It is magic without the glyphs created by Talad.
Govell: This is 'Wild' magic, something outside the rules of the Gods.
Govell: Diaboli used it, since they are the only race who cast magic before arriving in Yliakum.
-The tone of Govell grows stern.-
Govell: Be careful, and pay special attention to my next words.
Govell: Your level of power will give you sense of the existence of the Seventh Way.
Govell: Temptation will strike you.
Govell: And you have to contrast it.
Govell: Otherwise 'Wild' magic will wipe out your very soul.
Govell: You will be put to True Death if the Seventh Way does not destroy you first.
Govell: Is this understood?
YOU: Yes, I understand.
Govell: The dangers of the Seventh Way go beyond your imagination.
Govell: Two mages have attempted to master before today, and they suffered a fate I would wish on no one.
-Govell pauses, his gaze is firm.-
Govell: Now, I have to tell you about another hidden knowledge.
Govell: Something not even I wish to know, a threaten to the existence itself.
Govell: The Circles, especially the Masters, are fighting a war against this Dark entity.
Govell: These battles are hidden to the eye of the people of Yliakum, but you have to know.
Govell: Our enemy is called the BlackFlame.
Govell: Have you ever heard about it?
YOU: Yes I know the BlackFlame.
Govell: I wish to fill the pool of your knowledge.
Govell: None knows for sure what is the BlackFlame.
Govell: Someone supposes it is a God.
Govell: While others assume it is a force of destruction.
Govell: I have not the answer to what is the BlackFlame, but I can say that its touch infects and deprives the creations of the other Ways.
Govell: Your path will surely teach you more about this, maybe it will grant you access to the Vault of Ages in Arden.
Govell: Even I had that privilige only once.
Govell: I was allowed to catch a glimpse of what is kept in the Vault of Ages, no more.
Govell: That day I discovered…
-Govell closes his eyes for some second.-
Govell: Much of the past is hidden, and I did not know why, until my visit in Arden.
-Govell takes a long breath.-
Govell: You will understand, for yourself.
Govell: Not today, but when your time will come.
Govell: Well then, one last formality.
-Govell puts away the old cloak and opens a sack, taking out a new cloak. He offers it to you.-
Govell: This will prove the mastery you gained in the Crystal Way.
Govell: Make a good use of it, YOU.
Govell: And take this.
-Govell hands you an amulet.-
Govell: Bring it to Levrus, one final lesson awaits you there.
