12 Phoenix, 1325 AE
I have arrived at the bloodstone to begin my apprenticeship under Valis. It's an honor to work on a project so critical to the Order, though I must admit my mentor seems a bit... eccentric.

Genuises are often a little odd, so I go into the project with great enthusiasm and optimism!

I'd be lying if I said I didn't expect my assignment to be a bit more, let's just say, scientific.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Instead of assisting on actual research, I've been given menial tasks like serving tea, delivering mail, and helping prepare lunch for the garrison.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
I'm starting to think I'll need to come in after hours if I want to accomplish any research of my own and get that "real-world work experience" I was promised.

If I'm asked to carry another dusty tome to those bickering poseurs, I swear to the Unseen Ones, I will burn the garrison down!

While they argue over whether the false gods, the Seers, or King Adelbern's great-granduncle's cat forged the stone, I've been coming in at night to do my own research.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Of course they won't listen to me even if I do make a discovery, so I've begun mixing my notes in with the notes of the research team.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
I have no doubt they won't hesitate to take credit for someone else's discoveries. Insufferable hacks!

As anticipated, that brownnoser Phill was quick to take credit for my discovery regarding the spirits that are attracted to it, who can't seem to leave it behind and pass on.

Hard to imagine that anyone killed on the bloodstone could still be nearby, tethered for eternity to the bloodstone's magic. The Chosen must've returned when they were freed at the Door of Komalie.

Continue reading.
What confusion or purpose would compel them to return to the place of their sacrifice? What binds them here? Bloodstone must be as much a drug for them as it is for the living.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Their energy adds to the vortex of magic surrounding the bloodstone. Their deaths are a necessary sacrifice for the glory of the Unseen Ones, but a shame nevertheless.

I fear there could be a catastrophic event if Valis continues with his plan to break through the shell of the bloodstone.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Everything I've read about the bloodstone suggests that it holds an unimaginable amount of magic.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Up to now, it has held strong... for millennia even. But if the shell is broken?
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Let's just hope the entire continent isn't blown up the second we crack the shell.

Justiciar Bauer executed another research-team leader today for "displaying a lack of progress."
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
He even had him killed atop the bloodstone since there was "no sense in wasting the power of a perfectly good soul." This is blasphemy!
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
No faithful servant of the Unseen Ones deserves to be leashed to a stone for eternity just because they have unreachable goals and an unrealistic schedule!

Well, we didn't blow up Tyria, but as I feared, the bloodstone is no longer able to contain its power.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Bloodstone crystals have sprouted outside the core stone, and you can feel the magic seeping from the hole those idiots carved into the stone's shell.

The fool Valis thinks this is valuable since it makes harvesting the shards easier, but I think he is toying with a power he neither understands nor respects.

I couldn't keep my concerns about the leaking bloodstone magic to myself any longer, so I revealed to Valis that I had been working after hours.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
This nearly cost me my head, but when I proved to Valis that Phill's self-claimed discoveries were actually mine, it cost Phill his head instead.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
As a result, I've been permitted to join the research team proper. You can get your own tea now, you hacks!
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Despite this good news, my warnings continue to fall on deaf ears.

This is too much! Some slave came in and fell upon a shard. He bled all over my workstation!
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
If that weren't bad enough, the wound reacted oddly to the shard, and this has led Valis down a dark path.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
He hopes to embed bloodstone shards in human test subjects to power them from within.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
This is both unethical and exceptionally dangerous! I can't believe the higher-ups are permitting this!

I hate to admit it, but Savant Valis seems to have finally gotten something right.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
The artifacts we liberated from the Durmand Priory were, in fact, the key required to draw the magic back out of the bloodstone shards.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
The Seers must have anticipated our need to tap the magic within the bloodstone, and this device may be what they used to do so.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
I had hoped this would abort Valis's plan with Matthias, but it seems to have instead accelerated the timetable of that disgusting experiment.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
May the Unseen Ones at least give him a quick release should the process warp his mind as I anticipate.

I've performed more calculations on the bloodstone.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
The crack where the fools drilled continues to expand at a rate of a quarter of a meter per day, despite the halting of further violation of the core stone itself.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
At this rate, the crack will encircle the entire bloodstone in a matter of months.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
I anticipate that, at that time, the stone will cease to be strong enough to contain it's magic, and it will rupture.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
I have calculated numerous projections on the fallout of catastrophic failure of the bloodstone, and needless to say, they are all bad.

Mordremoth's death has greatly accelerated the growth of the crack in the bloodstone. It's no longer a matter of months until it ruptures, but a matter of days.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Every simulation I have run indicates that catastophic failure of the stone will create a blast large enough to engulf Kryta in magical fallout.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
What good are jade constructs and bloodstone-empowered freaks of nature if the homeland we plan to reclaim with them is a wasteland?
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Despite my impeccable calculations and tireless research, Valis refuses to look at my report! We're running out of time and options!

73 Phoenix, 1328 AE
Every slave we've attempted to embed with bloodstone shards has seen only a moderate power increase, and the ensuing madness that overtook them forced us to put them down.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Despite this, Matthias has agreed to undergo the procedure once a harvesting process is discovered.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
The others are hailing him as some sort of grand martyr, but to me he is simply another fool craving power he doesn't fully comprehend.

I was delivering mail today, and a letter addressed to Justiciar Bauer may have "accidentally" opened on its own.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
It spoke about a mining operation nearby that leads directly under the bloodstone, and about some sort of ritual they plan to perform.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
The letter was vague, so I don't know what they are planning, but with the bloodstone barely held together, I can only assume whatever it is may be the straw that breaks the dolyak's back.
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
Valis has given me no other option, and I am forced to go to Justiciar Bauer directly. I only hope he is more reasonable than "Grand Savant Valis the Learned."
