Her Majesty Queen Jennah

You Are Invited to the Jubilee Closing Ceremony


By Royal Proclamation,

Queen Jennah's Jubilee will conclude with a closing ceremony in Divinity's Reach. Her Majesty will be in attendance, along with her esteemed guests and emissaries from across Tyria.

Her Majesty will close the festivities with remarks at the new coliseum, built on the former site of the Great Collapse in Divinity's Reach.

May the Six Gods watch over you, and may they continue to bless the benevolent Queen of Kryta.

Dialogue[edit]

Speaking to Rox
Good to have you here. Can you nudge me if I start to nod off during Her Majesty's speech?
Talk end option tango.png
I think I can handle that.
Speaking to Braham
Keep following me around like this, and you'll end up in all those songs the skaalds will sing about me someday.
Talk end option tango.png
Good to see you again, Braham.
Speaking to Logan Thackeray
Great to have you here to help keep the peace, if need be. There was some trouble during the opening ceremony that I'd like to avoid.
Talk end option tango.png
Everything seems secure for the moment, at least.
Speaking to Countess Anise
I don't believe I've had the pleasure. I'm Countess Anise-advisor, confidant, and protector of the Queen. Can I count on your help here today?
Talk end option tango.png
Of course, Countess.
Braham: I like this party. It's not quite a Cragstead moot, but Krytans definitely know how to stage a celebratory fight.
Rox: Sadly, we have to stop fighting for now. It's almost time for the closing ceremonies, and I'm expected. Official duties and all.
Braham: Oh, good: another speech. I'll go and listen, but when she's done talking, I'm back to beating on those mechanical men.
Queen Jennah: Thank you all for coming. This event is ending, but humanity's resolve will never waver.
Queen Jennah: We have withstood every challenge thrown at us. Because unity is our strength. Together, there is nothing we cannot withstand.
Scarlet Briar: Aaaaand that's my cue. Hello, DR! My name is Scarlet, and I've come to play with you.
Scarlet Briar: Don't panic...yet. I've been laughing my leaves off while your queen brays about "trials" and "endurance."
Scarlet Briar: It's time to show how fragile human society is. To wit: these 'watchknights' you're so proud of? Mine now.
Scarlet Briar: I've also planted a few bombs around the city to keep things lively. Bet you can't find them all!
Scarlet Briar: Ta for now. See you soon! Oh, and I'll be taking your queen with me. Hang on, Your Majesty. It's going to be a wild ride.
Lord Faren: Never fear, my queen! Lord Faren will save you!
Lord Faren: Well now. That. I did not expect.
Logan Thackeray: Citizens! Stand clear. The Seraph will protect you.
Braham: Finally, some action. Come on, Rox!
Speaking to Braham
This sure beats some boring speech, huh?
Talk end option tango.png
Heh. Guess it does.
Speaking to Rox
I'm more skilled at this kind of diplomacy.
Talk end option tango.png
We've got this.
Rox: Hey, Braham, these things can actually fight!
1/4 bombs disarmed
Scarlet Briar: Oh, look at all of you scurrying around for your lives. So cute!
Braham: Let's scrap these contraptions!
Marcello DiGiacomo: Begone, you awful thing! Isn't it enough that you've ruined my earning potential as a street performer?
Hobo-Tron: Incorrect—recollection. Like—you, I—only—endeavored—to—entertain—others.
Aetherblade Thug: Oh-ho! What have we here?
Aetherblade Thug: I heard this one say they're "performers."
Aetherblade Thug: Sounds like we just booked ourselves some world-class entertainment. (laugh)
Aetherblade Thug: (laugh)
Aetherblade Thug: (laugh)
Hobo-Tron: I—once—attended—a—Consortium—workshop—on—hostage—negotiation. We—should—cooperate—with—them.
Marcello DiGiacomo: I hate you sooo much.
Rox: No. They're slaughtering everyone!
2/4 bombs disarmed
Scarlet Briar: Enjoying yourself? I know I am.
Countess Anise: Shining Blade! Rally to the queen!
Countess Anise: If anyone approaches, cut them down.
Speaking to Countess Anise
The Shining Blade will look after the Queen. Can you attend to the citizens?
Talk end option tango.png
Count on me.
Speaking to Logan Thackeray
Help me protect the queen!
Talk end option tango.png
Count on me.
Scarlet Briar: Why don't you try begging for mercy? That could be fun.
3/4 bombs disarmed
Scarlet Briar: Die die die. Die die die, die die.
4/4 bombs disarmed
Scarlet Briar: Oops, did I say four bombs? I meant five.
Scarlet Briar: Where did I put it... Oh, I remember: right where the Seraph are gathering up the civilians. How careless of me.
Logan Thackeray: Gods... She's bombed our evacuation point. My men... All of those civilians...
Scarlet Briar: By the Tree, what have I done? What a monstrous traged— (laughs) Sorry, I just couldn't keep a straight face.
Queen Jennah: Forgive the deception, Logan. Countess Anise's security measures depended on as few people as possible knowing about them.
Logan Thackeray: I'm glad you're safe, but I'm your cap—a Seraph captain. How can I serve if I'm not informed?
Countess Anise: Don't be petulant. My job is to protect the queen from her enemies. Yours is to seek out and destroy those enemies.
Countess Anise: There were indications of a threat, so I concealed the real queen until it revealed itself. Now it has. And it's spreading.
Countess Anise: Reports from all over the globe tell of portals releasing Scarlet's twisted minions. What are you doing about it?
Queen Jennah: A fair question. Scarlet can't be allowed to complete whatever it is she's started, and she must be punished for the attempt.
Logan Thackeray: Very well. Scarlet is the problem, and she's in the pavilion. If she's using portals to send things out, we use portals to send things in.
Queen Jennah: Marshal whatever forces you need, Captain. Scarlet and her minions must be rooted out of that pavilion to face Krytan justice.
Countess Anise: And do hurry. The sooner we get in, the sooner we rescue the VIP hostages. Poor Faren...who'd have thought he had hero in him?
Rox: What's the situation, Captain? Braham and I are ready if you need us.
Logan Thackeray: I'd welcome the help. Scarlet's clearly been planning this for a long time, and she's several steps ahead of us.
Logan Thackeray: We have to catch up. Fast. Our top priorities are to neutralize her minions and find a way into that pavilion.
Braham: "Neutralize" means "break," right? Because I can do that.
Logan Thackeray: That'll work for her minions, but the door doesn't look breakable. We're going to need an alternative. Maybe portals?
Rox: I was talking to the asuran dignitary, Vorpp. He's an engineer with a background in asura gates and teleportation equipment.
Logan Thackeray: Perfect. See if he's ready and willing to help. In the meantime, I'll organize Seraph patrols to protect the streets.
Rox: So, Vorpp: we need a way into Scarlet's playhouse. Ready to put your thaumo-technical skills to use on behalf of DR?
Emissary Vorpp: Of course. I know of this Scarlet. She earned advanced engineering degrees at each of Rata Sum's colleges in record time.
Emissary Vorpp: "Engineering prodigy," they said. "Intuitive grasp of phenomenological design and transcendent systems." Pfah, I say. Pfah!
Emissary Vorpp: I hate a show-off, especially when they're showing me up. Count me in. Taking down Scarlet is a matter of asuran pride.
Rox: Asuran pride and human survival. Now let's put our heads together and figure out a way into that pavilion.
Speaking to Vorpp
While inside her lair, Scarlet's able to launch remote attacks using teleportation technology. I believe that I can reverse-engineer her portals to gain access to her lair, with your help.
Talk quest option tango.png
How can I help?
Scarlet's minions first attacked Gendarran Fields, near Ascalon Settlement. If you forget what to do next, use the communicator to contact me.
Talk quest option tango.png
On my way.
Talk more option tango.png
Did you learn anything about Scarlet that might help us?
I know she got special dispensation to study at all three Rata Sum colleges. She excelled, too, that leafy little know—it—all.
Talk more option tango.png
So she's asura-trained?
Asura-, charr-, norn-, and even hylek-trained, if you believe the stories. All I know for sure is that she claims to have seen the Eternal Alchemy, and to understand it...which is patently false.
Talk more option tango.png
Why is it false?
Because nobody ever "sees" the Eternal Alchemy. That's like claiming to see the shape of the universe, or to understand how reality works. If it's beyond every asura genius, it's beyond her.
Talk more option tango.png
How can I help?
You can gather some data for me at the site of Scarlet's first portal invasion. Once you're there, get in touch with me using this holo-communicator.
