→ Go to Evelyn
YOU: I have the proof of being a worthy student, Archmistress.
Evelyn: You obeyed me, and your devotion lead you here.
Evelyn: You reached a point where I can give you no more…
Evelyn: in the Dark Way.
Evelyn: You are a full Master of the Dark Way.
-Evelyn takes the bracers and examines them carefully. She takes a long breath.-
Evelyn: Dark Way and its allies, Red and Brown…
Evelyn: All this power in my hands, within my spirit.
Evelyn: I would sacrifice all of it to feel the Blue in my body, again.
-Evelyn thrusts back the items and turns her back on you.-
Evelyn: Return them to their owners.
Evelyn: Please.
Evelyn: They will need them, very soon.
Evelyn: I…
Evelyn: you do not…
-Evelyn sighs, a long and deep sigh. Then her face turns back to you, her usual sideways glance shows no emotion.-
Evelyn: Give me your last Adept item, please.
YOU: Yes, here you are Archmistress.
-Evelyn starts folding the cloak, touching it gently.-
Evelyn: As a Master of the Dark Circle you are allowed to learn about our history and our secrets.
Evelyn: Are you interested to hear them?
YOU: Yes, I very much want to hear.
Evelyn: Very well.
Evelyn: I was sure of your interest.
Evelyn: Would you like to talk about our history?
-Evelyn half closes her eyes-
Evelyn: …
Evelyn: or about our secrets?
YOU: Tell me about secrets, please.
Evelyn: The secrets I want to tell are for your ears and for very few others.
Evelyn: Only people who proved themselves can manage to keep a secret like the one I'm going to tell you.
Evelyn: The danger in it can harm many lives, not only your own, so you are allowed to discuss them only with the highest levels of the Circles.
Evelyn: Full masters of every Way.
-Evelyn makes a pause, leaning forward.-
Evelyn: The texts in the Sanctuary hold knowledge about all the Ways and artifacts of power.
Evelyn: It contains the complete version of this secret too.
Evelyn: The position, even the existence of the sanctuary, is closed to the citizen.
Evelyn: Secrets hidden in other secrets.
Evelyn: I need your word.
Evelyn: Promise me you will never share this knowledge outside the Masters of the Circles.
YOU: Yes Archmistress.
Evelyn: The first secret is the Seventh Way.
Evelyn: Until now, I assume you know only six Ways, but there is a Seventh.
Evelyn: The Seventh is the essence of all the other Ways, but is also none of them.
Evelyn: It is magic without the glyphs created by Talad.
Evelyn: This is 'Wild' magic…something outside the rules of the Gods.
Evelyn: Diaboli used it, since they are the only race who cast magic before arriving in Yliakum.
-The tone of Evelyn grows stern.-
Evelyn: Be careful, and pay special attention to my next words.
Evelyn: Your level of power will give you sense of the existence of the Seventh Way.
Evelyn: Temptation will strike you.
Evelyn: And you have to resist it.
Evelyn: Otherwise 'Wild' magic will wipe out your very soul.
Evelyn: You will be put to True Death if the Seventh Way does not destroy you first.
Evelyn: Is this understood?
YOU: Yes Archmistress.
Evelyn: The dangers of the Seventh Way go beyond your imagination.
Evelyn: Two mages have attempted to master it up to today, and they suffered a fate I would wish on no one.
-Evelyn pauses, her gaze is firm.-
Evelyn: Now, I have to tell you about another hidden knowledge.
Evelyn: Something not even I wish to know, a threat to existence itself.
Evelyn: The Circles, especially the Masters, are fighting a war against this Dark entity.
Evelyn: These battles are hidden to the eye of the people of Yliakum, but you have to know.
Evelyn: Our enemy is called the BlackFlame.
Evelyn: Have you ever heard about it?
YOU: Yes, I have Archmistress.
Evelyn: I wish to fill the pool of your knowledge.
Evelyn: None know for sure what is the BlackFlame.
Evelyn: Some suppose it is a God.
Evelyn: While others assume it is a force of destruction.
Evelyn: 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.
Evelyn: Your path will surely teach you more about this, maybe it will grant you access to the Vault of Ages in Arden.
Evelyn: My travels brought me there, many times, with…
Evelyn: someone.
-Evelyn smiles, while her eyes look in the past.-
Evelyn: I still have many question with no answers about that place.
Evelyn: Many shadows hide the past; the only thing I discovered…
-Evelyn closes her eyes for some second.-
Evelyn: No, you have to learn for yourself.
Evelyn: My word can't explain to you what I saw.
-Evelyn takes a long breath.-
Evelyn: Well then, one last formality.
-Evelyn puts away the old cloak and opens a sack, taking out a new cloak. She offers it to you.-
Evelyn: This will prove the mastery you gained in the Dark Way.
Evelyn: Make a good use of it, YOU.
Evelyn: And take this.
-Evelyn hands you an amulet.-
Evelyn: Bring it to Levrus, one final lesson awaits you there.
