Bastion of Strength

Bastion of Strength is an area within northeastern Amnytas. It hosts the Strength school of thought of Amnytas[1] led by Mabon of the Wizard's Court. A home of discipline, the Bastion's strength lies not only withing muscles and steel but in intention and craft, and is dependent on the individuals of the Astral Ward, as well as the Ward together as a unit.[2]

Ambient dialogue[edit]

Hologram south of the Courtyard of Gathering Strength
Mabon: My friends and allies. We are nothing without strength—and I do not speak only of muscles and steel.
Mabon: I speak of the power that each of us brings to the Astral Ward, as individuals and as a unit.
Mabon: And as a unit, we will weave through every battle with intention and craft. No fight is kind, but let us be just.
Mabon: The Bastion of Strength is a home of discipline.
Around the Astral Ward Training Grounds
Astral Ward Skirmisher (1): Gotten trained up on those grimoire spells like Vanak ordered?
Astral Ward Skirmisher (2): No... I know they're powerful against the Kryptis, but why do they have to smell like that?
Astral Ward Skirmisher (1): Can't count on the astral rifle or the ward breakers always being available. Gotta be prepared for any of the scenarios.
Astral Ward Skirmisher (2): I know. I've read them all—Cold Frame, Glass Dragon, Mosaic Wrath... I just don't want to lose my lunch.
Astral Ward Skirmisher (1): We go into one of those operations unprepared, we're all gonna lose a lot more than our lunch.
Astral Ward Skirmisher (2): (grunts) Fair point. I'll get on it.
In tower with vista north of Defensive Operations Camp
Rift Hunter Warrior: She...she was... Did you see that...?
Astral Ward Skirmisher: We need to move soon.
At the Defensive Operations Camp
Astral Ward Medic: I don't like the color of that wound... I need to speak with Zizel or Narcisse.
At the camp between Defensive Operations Camp and Courtyard of Gathering Strength
Veteran Largos: The wayfinder, fighting by our side?
Astral Ward Mage: I hope that doesn't spell misfortune for us...
Veteran Largos: Do not doubt the speed of the tide. The wayfinder's presence is a boon.

    Each bastion represents a different magical school of thought, where the wizards share their ancient knowledge with the Astral Ward.
