Event start
Inspector Ellen Kiel: Nice work. It's gone to ground. Now to finish the job!
After the Ancient Karka is in position
Lionguard: We need to hold that thing here long enough for the explosives to seal it in.
After second set of explosives
Lionguard: That's it. Just a bit longer!
Once the Ancient Karka was out of health
Lionguard: This is it. Detonate now! Now!
When the Ancient Karka is killed
Lionguard: We did it!
Lionguard: It's dead! We did it! Not so "unbreakable" now, are you?
Event completion
Inspector Ellen Kiel: We did it, but this doesn't feel like a victory. The karka weren't a threat until Canach and the Consortium provoked them.
Head Researcher Levvi: I concur: this was entirely avoidable. And I'd like to continue my research so we can avoid any future karka problems.
Magnus the Bloody-Handed: You're both crazy. We know how to kill these sea bugs. What else do you need to know?
Head Researcher Levvi: More. Much, much more. And if you let Kiel help me, we can study the karka and keep an eye on the Consortium.
Magnus the Bloody-Handed: Hmm. That has potential. I'll run it past the Ship's Council. With my endorsement, we might be able to put you to some good use.


  • This was a one-time only event as part of the Lost Shores game release.
