Kasmeer Meade

Pale Tree Will See Us My dear <character name>,

The Pale Tree has agreed to an audience, but she wishes to speak with you personally. I'm already in the Grove with Braham and Rox. We'll wait for you there. Please come at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,


Unspecified mail content.

—Kasmeer

Speaking with your companions
Braham Eirsson: Hey. I heard from Taimi. She's gone back to Rata Sum. Apparently she has schooling to catch up on, the little vagabond.
Talk quest option tango.png
I'm glad. She'll be safer there. Thanks for coming
Are you kidding? I wouldn't miss this for the world. We don't have talking trees where I come from.
Talk quest option tango.png
I'll let you know what she says.
Rox: Hi. How are you feeling? Any residual gunk left over after Omadd's device got its sparks in you?
Talk quest option tango.png
Nothing physical. Just worried about the Mordremoth situation.
Me too. Here's hoping this being can help us. If she's as powerful and wise as you say, then your discussion with her will be interesting.
Talk quest option tango.png
Very true.
Kasmeer Meade: We'll wait here, so you can talk to the Pale Tree in private. Oh, and Marjory sends her regards, by the way.
Talk quest option tango.png
So you saw her?
Yes. She's okay. I missed the funeral, but I got to spend a little time with her. She'll be back with us soon.
Talk quest option tango.png
I'm glad to hear that.
After the initial dialogues
Warden Lochin: Hello, Kasmeer. I've been hearing a lot about you. You're the one who unveiled the Nightmare Tower, aren't you?
Kasmeer Meade: That was a team effort. I wouldn't have made it out alive without my friends, especially this one here.
Warden Lochin: (to player character) Hello. I heard you fought Zhaitan beside Caithe. It's an honor to meet you.
Warden Lochin: Our beloved Mother is ready to see you. If you would follow me.
if sylvari
Avatar of the Tree: My child. What a delight to see you looking so well.
Avatar of the Tree: You said you had a matter of utmost urgency to discuss. Please, let's talk.
if not sylvari
Avatar of the Tree: What a delight to see you.
Warden Lochin: Please allow me to present your guest, Destroyer of Zhaitan and Commander of the Pact.
Avatar of the Tree: I am eager to hear what it is you wish to discuss.
Speaking with Warden Lochin
Let me know if you need anything.
Talk end option tango.png
Okay.
Speaking with Avatar of the Tree
If sylvari
What a joy to see you again, my child. Your visits seem to grow longer apart with each passing season.
Talk quest option tango.png
For me too, Mother. But I have been very busy.
Yes, Caithe has spoken to me about your involvement in Zhaitan's demise. You still run with Destiny's Edge?
Talk quest option tango.png
I did for a while. Now I lead a new group.
Yes, so it is said. I suspect you will do even greater deeds with them. But tell me, what brings you here seeking my counsel?
Talk quest option tango.png
Two things. First, I had a vision. You figured prominently in it.
I'm intrigued. Tell me more. What was it about? Where did you have this vision?
Talk quest option tango.png
In an asuran device Scarlet used to see the Eternal Alchemy. I saw it too.
What dangers have you been toying with? Such things were not meant to be seen. They will crack your mind.
Talk quest option tango.png
I didn't understand much of the vision, but you were at the center.
Well, my child, the one thing you must never forget is that I stand between you and the greatest darkness you'll ever know. A vast darkness intent on consuming all that we hold dear.
Talk quest option tango.png
What do you mean, Mother?
There are those who reject my protection. It leaves them vulnerable in ways they cannot imagine, in ways they never were before. I shield you as best I can and will for as long as I can.
Talk quest option tango.png
You're talking about dragon corruption. We've been immune to it.
Yes. In the past, my children have been immune. But Mordremoth's corruption is powerful, and just as Zhaitan created the undead from so many creatures, so Mordremoth's corruption can change you.
Talk quest option tango.png
Scarlet?
I believe she opened herself to it when she let down the wall of her mind. Mordremoth's corruption seeps in through the cracks in our willpower. Do not follow in her footsteps.
Talk quest option tango.png
I have no plan to do so, Mother. I'm strong willed.
Yes, you are. So tell me, what is the second half of your quest here today. How may I help you?
Talk quest option tango.png
I wanted to ask more about Mordremoth. It seems to have fully awakened.
If not sylvari
I know you. You were here with Trahearne, and you accompanied him on his vision of the Pact's future. <Character name>. It is good to see you looking so well.
Talk quest option tango.png
And you, lovely as always.
Caithe has spoken your name to me in her tales of Zhaitan's demise. You run with Destiny's Edge.
Talk quest option tango.png
I did for a while. Now I lead a new group.
Yes, so it is said. I suspect you will do even greater deeds with them. But tell me, what brings you here seeking my counsel?
Talk quest option tango.png
Two things. First, I had a vision. You figured prominently in it.
I'm intrigued. Tell me more. What was it about? Where did you have this vision?
Talk quest option tango.png
In an asuran device Scarlet used to see the Eternal Alchemy. I saw it too.
What dangers have you been toying with? Such things were not meant to be seen. They will crack your mind.
Talk quest option tango.png
I didn't understand much of the vision, but you were at the center.
If this was the device that Ceara used, then it must have maintained some of her touch upon it. But, I do not know what it could mean. Only you can know that.
Talk quest option tango.png
Maybe in time... What about Mordremoth? You know it's been active?
After the first part for the dialogue with the Pale Tree
Avatar of the Tree: It is true. The Elder Dragon Mordremoth has reached full awareness.
Warden Lochin: (gasp) No!
Avatar of the Tree: I've known since the moment we heard the roar.
Avatar of the Tree: Lochin, would you kindly find Niamh and ask her to come speak with me?
Warden Lochin: Of course. I'll return with her as quickly as I can.
Avatar of the Tree: I had to send him away. What we have to discuss is too serious.
Avatar of the Tree: I want to hear your thoughts on this. Tell me, what do you know about Mordremoth?
Speaking privately with Avatar of the Tree
Please, <Character name>, tell me all you know of Mordremoth's activities. I've been waiting to see how it would make its move while reinforcing our security here in the Grove.
Talk quest option tango.png
It's been killing people. It attacked Forts Salma and Concordia.
And its minions. They've spread far?
Talk quest option tango.png
We encountered them far to the east and west as close as Brisban Wildlands.
So soon? And so close. That does not bode well. Please continue.
Talk quest option tango.png
Salma and Concordia were destroyed by its giant thorn vines.
This is troubling news.
Talk quest option tango.png
There's more. The minions are attracted to waypoints. They destroy them.
I understand. The situation is dire. If the Elder Dragon's reach is that great, the entirety of Tyria is at risk. What do you recommend we do?
Talk quest option tango.png
We need to inform the world's leaders and get them to join ranks.
I see. A summit, then. I could host such a gathering, if you can convince them to come. Who do you plan to invite?
Talk quest option tango.png
Queen Jennah, of course. And a leader from each of the other races. (for humans)
Talk quest option tango.png
Imperator Smodur, of course. And a leader from each of the other races. (for charr)
Talk quest option tango.png
A member of the Arcane Council, of course. And a leader from each of the other races. (for asura)
Talk quest option tango.png
The leaders of the other races. I'll ask my friends who would be best. (for sylvari)
Talk quest option tango.png
Knut Whitebear, of course. And a leader from each of the other races. (for norn)
I'll leave it in your hands then while I prepare here. You did the right thing, bringing this to me. I am happy to help you.
Talk quest option tango.png
My friends and I will do whatever we must to get them all here.
Speaking with the Avatar again
Safe journeys. I'll begin preparations for the summit.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm grateful.
Back at your companions
Kasmeer Meade: That seemed to go well. She agreed to play hostess. What do we do now?
Speaking with Kasmeer Meade
What's the plan?
Talk quest option tango.png
Get the world's leaders here.
With her name on the summit, they might just come. But who? And how?
Talk quest option tango.png
We split up. Get to whomever you can—the highest ranking in your home city.
So we're going to get someone from Divinity's Reach? The queen? And Rox is going to the Black Citadel?
Talk quest option tango.png
And Braham will go to Hoelbrak. I'll help you all. We can do it together.
That's a comfort. Thanks. All right. We can do this.
Talk quest option tango.png
Yes. We can.


Kasmeer Meade: I won't get an audience with the queen, but I can speak with Countess Anise.
Braham Eirsson: Nervous? I know you've had, um, issues with your people.
Kasmeer Meade: No, I'm fine. I just haven't had to speak with Countess Anise or the queen for a while, not since...my father...
Rox: I suppose I'll have to toughen up and talk to Tribune Brimstone. I won't get anywhere near Smodur.
Braham Eirsson: Yeah, and I'll have to return to Hoelbrak. Last time I saw Whitebear, my mother was there.
Rox: We can do this. It's important. And afterward, we'll meet up again.
Braham Eirsson: Not every battle is fun, I suppose.
Braham Eirsson: Before I head to Hoelbrak, I should find Taimi. She's in Rata Sum. Maybe she can talk to Zojja about getting an asuran leader at the summit.
Kasmeer Meade: But in their minds, she's just a student. No one there pays much attention to her.
Braham Eirsson: I know, but she's got Zojja's ear. It's worth a shot. If she fails, we'll send in the boss to convince Zojja. They're friends.
Kasmeer Meade: Well, we have everything covered. Send word to each other when things are squared away, yes?
Rox: Deal. Guess all we have to hope for is that everyone agrees to show up.
Kasmeer Meade: Once we get them in one place, we can worry about convincing them to join forces.
Braham Eirsson: The world coming together in support of a single cause? Yeah, that'll happen.
Rox: (spit) For luck.
Kasmeer Meade: Oh, Rox. Please.
Reading Letter From Taimi.
You've received a note from Taimi titled "Mordremoth's Reach."
Talk quest option tango.png
Read the note.
Hello! The asuran news updates are saying that vines matching the recent attacks at Fort Concordia and Fort Salma have appeared in the Iron Marches.
Talk quest option tango.png
Keep reading.
If this proves true, Mordremoth's reach may be even greater than any have anticipated. I surmise that it's in our best interest for you to investigate these reports. —Taimi
Talk quest option tango.png
I'd better let the others know about this.
Speaking with Kasmeer Meade
Was that letter from Marjory?
Talk quest option tango.png
No, sorry. From Taimi. They've spotted Mordrem in the Iron Marches area.
Rox: Iron Marches? Sorry to butt in, but did she mention the Black Citadel? Have they been hit?
Talk quest option tango.png
She didn't say more than that, but I'm going to investigate.
Kasmeer Meade: That's a good idea. The more information we have, the better. I'll head to Divinity's Reach and request and audience with Countess Anise.
Talk quest option tango.png
Good luck. Meet me at the ley line hub after you speak with the countess?
I'll come as soon as I know something.
Talk quest option tango.png
Great. Thanks, Kasmeer.
Speaking with your allies
Kasmeer Meade: I think our best shot is to talk to Countess Anise. If anyone can get the queen's ear, it's her. I just hope she has time to hear us out.
Talk more option tango.png
So you don't think the queen will talk to you?
Even when my family was in good standing, it was tough to get an audience with her. And now? Well...she's very busy, you know?
Talk end option tango.png
I understand.
Rox: I'll send word when I have meeting arranged with Tribune Brimstone so you can meet me. I admit I don't want to face him alone.
Talk more option tango.png
Is he still mad because you didn't kill Scarlet when you had the chance?
That is unclear. But if he is, then he very well could tear out my throat to make an example of me.
Talk end option tango.png
I won't let that happen.
Braham Eirsson: I suppose Knut Whitebear is sort of our leader. In a way. He's not going to leave the Shiverpeaks easily, though.
Talk more option tango.png
Are you going to have to see your mother?
Probably. Whitebear won't leave Hoelbrak without her agreement, so we'd be smart to get her on our side first. I'll go on ahead and do some scouting.
Talk end option tango.png
All right. Let me know when you're ready, and I'll join you.

My story[edit]

Fighting the Nightmare.jpg

Kasmeer would like me to meet up with her, Rox and Braham in the Grove for an audience with the Pale Tree.

I discussed the growing threat of Mordremoth with the Pale Tree. She knew it had reached full awareness and has been increasing security around the Grove. I called for a world summit to rally forces against the Elder Dragon, and the Pale Tree graciously agreed to host.

Braham, Kasmeer and Rox agreed to appeal to the leaders of their home cities, though each expressed personal hesitation. Kasmeer's family was stripped of its titles after her father was incarcerated, leaving her with a mark of shame and limited clout. Braham has had an uneasy relationship with his mother, Eir, since she left him in his father's care when he was young. Rox disobeyed orders to kill Scarlet and chose to tend to Braham and the others during out battle aboard the Breachmaker. Her actions could be viewed as treasonous, so she's not looking forward to seeing Rytlock.
