Entering area with event active
<Character name>: You there, Taimi? Come in. Can you scan this area for Balthazar, please?
Taimi: Hmmm... Ah,yes... I see... Mm-hm... Looks like like there's a vast energy network in that whole area. Only portions are lit.
Taimi: I'm getting interference form Zhaitanic energy fluctuations, but I do see residual magic patterns that fit the Big B.
<Character Name>: Residual, as in he's not here anymore?
Taimi: Bingo! he was there, and that's an important data point. What's that big sploosh of magic near you?
<Character Name>: The lava pool, maybe? Balthazar has mercenaries stationed all around it.
Taimi: Might be worthy of closer inspection... Zap me! It's hard being in charge. My team need me. I'll be back, Commander.
Event success
Taimi: Whoa! That's quite a flare! Magic expanding! Heat and heartbeat rising Commander, are you all right?
<Character Name>: Just triggered something. The place is crawling with embers. I'll get back to you.
