YOU: I have the items, as requested, and I am ready for further instruction.
Ferryd: Dedication.
Ferryd: And perseverance.
Ferryd: They gave you power.
Ferryd: You've reached a point where I can give you no more.
Ferryd: Only the world now can teach you more lessons.
Ferryd: You are a full Way Master of the Red Way.
-Ferryd takes the items and examines them carefully. Then he assents, slowly.-
Ferryd: Return the items to their owners, as soon as you can.
Ferryd: They will need them.
Ferryd: Now, give me your last Adept item, please.
YOU: That is my robe, I am ready to replace it.
-Ferryd folds the robe, while his eyes look in yours.-
Ferryd: As a Master of the Red Circle you are allowed to learn about our history, and our secrets too.
Ferryd: Are you interested to hear them?
YOU: Yes, please.
Ferryd: Very well.
Ferryd: I was sure of your interest.
Ferryd: Would you like to talk about our history?
-Ferryd half closes his eyes-
Ferryd: …
Ferryd: or about our secrets?
YOU: Well tell me about the secrets then.
Ferryd: The secrets I want to tell are for your ears, and for very few others.
Ferryd: Only people who proved themselves can manage to keep a secret like the one I'm going to tell you.
Ferryd: The danger in it can harm many lives, not only your own.
Ferryd: So you are allowed to discuss them only with the highest levels of the Circles.
Ferryd: Full masters of every Way.
-Ferryd makes a pause, looking in your eyes.-
Ferryd: The texts in the Sanctuary holds knowledge about all the Ways, about artefacts of power…
Ferryd: And it contains the complete version of this secret too.
Ferryd: The position, even the existence of the sanctuary, is closed to the citizen.
Ferryd: Secrets hidden in other secrets.
Ferryd: I need your word.
Ferryd: Tell me you will never share this knowledge outside the Masters of the Circles.
YOU: I promise.
Ferryd: The first secret is the Seventh Way.
Ferryd: Until now I assume you know only six Ways, but there is a Seventh.
Ferryd: The Seventh is the essence of all the other Ways, but is also none of them.
Ferryd: It is magic without the glyphs created by Talad.
Ferryd: This is 'Wild' magic, something outside the rules of the Gods.
Ferryd: Diaboli used it, since they are the only race who cast magic before arriving in Yliakum.
-The tone of Ferryd grows stern.-
Ferryd: Be careful, and pay special attention to my next words.
Ferryd: Your level of power will give you sense of the existence of the Seventh Way.
Ferryd: Temptation will strike you.
Ferryd: And you have to contrast it.
Ferryd: Otherwise 'Wild' magic will wipe out your very soul.
Ferryd: You will be put to True Death if the Seventh Way does not destroy you first.
Ferryd: Is this understood?
YOU: Yes, I understand Archmage.
Ferryd: The dangers of the Seventh Way go beyond your imagination.
Ferryd: Two mages attempted to master it until today, and they suffered a fate I would wish on no one.
-Ferryd pauses, his gaze is firm.-
Ferryd: Now, I have to tell you about another hidden knowledge.
Ferryd: Something not even I wish to know, a threat to the existence itself.
Ferryd: The Circles, especially the Masters, are fighting a war against this Dark entity.
Ferryd: These battles are hidden to the eye of the people of Yliakum, but you have to know.
Ferryd: Our enemy is called the BlackFlame.
Ferryd: Have you ever heard about it?
YOU: No idea.
Ferryd: I wish to fill the pool of your knowledge.
Ferryd: None knows for sure what is the BlackFlame.
Ferryd: Someone supposes it is a God.
Ferryd: While others assume it is a force of destruction.
Ferryd: 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.
Ferryd: Your path will surely teach you more about this, maybe it will grant you access to the Vault of Ages in Arden.
Ferryd: Even I had that privilege only once.
Ferryd: I was allowed to catch a glimpse of what is kept in the Vault of Ages, no more.
Ferryd: That day I discovered…
-Ferryd closes his eyes for some second.-
Ferryd: Much of the past is hidden, and I did not know why, until my visit in Arden.
-Ferryd takes a long breath.-
Ferryd: You will understand, for yourself.
Ferryd: Not today, but when your time will come.
Ferryd: Well then, one last formality.
-Ferryd puts away the old cloak and opens a sack, taking out a new cloak. He offers it to you.-
Ferryd: This will prove the mastery you gained in the Red Way as you are now a 'Way Master of the Red Way'.
Ferryd: Make a good use of it, YOU.
Ferryd: And take this.
-Ferryd hands you an amulet.-
Ferryd: Bring it to Levrus, one final lesson awaits you there.
Rewards: 1 Master's Red Way Robe, 1 Master of Ways Amulet, 10 Faction with Red Order, 20600 XP.
