Before the event
Shining Grove: Do you hear it? Jormag's whisper echoes through ice and stone. I must rid this place of it.
Shining Grove: This shrine shepherds my people to Koda's side. But Jormag whispers to the departed, and they join the dragon.
Shining Grove: A great kodan hero fell here long ago. Jormag mocks her—desecrates this place.
Shining Grove: This shrine honors the fallen, but Jormag's voice breaks the silence. I must drive it away from here.
Event start
Shining Grove: This is a sacred temple to the kodan, and your whispers are not welcome here!
Shining Grove: Jormag! I am here to silence your lies!
Shining Grove: Jormag speaks in whispered lies. Do not listen! Hear my voice and mine alone!
Shining Grove: Do not listen to Jormag's voice! Hear me, and return to Koda's side once more!
During event
Shining Grove: We must purge these kodan shrines of the dragon's voice, or their souls will be lost! Please, help me!
Shining Grove: Jormag! You send more of your servants, but your grip weakens! Relent!
Shining Grove: Jormag sends its servants to stop me. But the will of Koda is balance. The will of Koda is peace.
Shining Grove: The dragon wishes for its voice alone to be heard. Do not yield!
Shining Grove: Do you feel it, my lost brothers and sisters? The evil in this place begins to retreat. But we are not finished yet!
Event success
Shining Grove: Do you feel that? Balance is restored. The shrine is silent once again. If only for a time.
Shining Grove: Jormag surrendered this place, yet still I feel its presence around us. I will need to return later, I'm sure.
Shining Grove: There. The beast's presence is removed...for now. But it will return. It always does.
Shining Grove: It's gone, though never for long. Jormag's voice travels with the wind.
Event failure
Shining Grove: Koda forgive me, I cannot stay here! Everyone, flee the whispers! When they fade, I will try once more.
