Historian Vermoth: You must be the backup I requested. Ready? It's a rough trip to the Cathedral of Lights.
Historian Vermoth: I've been researching Orrian history to prepare for this task. It's fascinating!
Historian Vermoth: But I digress. Let's get moving. I'll explain along the way.
When Vermoth reaches the plaza checkpoint, a band of undead soldiers rises from the earth and attacks
Undead Lieutenant: Arise! Stand and fight for Zhaitan!
Historian Vermoth: It looks like the lights aren't all that remain. We'll have to fight our way across.
Upon arrival
Historian Vermoth: Ah, this is it! The Plaza of Lights!
At 25% crossing
Historian Vermoth: Once a year, the ancient Orrians illuminated the course way from the temple to Doric's shrine. This plaza shimmered like a jewel!
At 50% crossing
Historian Vermoth: The lighting ceremony honored Doric's role as the first king of Tyria—and the first to kneel at Dwayna's feet.
At 75% crossing
Historian Vermoth: I wonder if any of those lights remain...
If players succeed in crossing the plaza with Vermoth, the plaza lights flicker on and this line is triggered by checkpoint
Historian Vermoth: Look! The lights! They’re as glorious as the manuscripts said they were.
The quaggan soldier and his troops form a line in front of the player and Vermoth, preventing their progress
Risen Lieutenant: Zhaitan owns this temple now. He forbids your intrusion.
If players try to enter the temple, the quaggan fires this line
Risen Lieutenant: Zhaitan sanctions quaggan to reclaim this place. His power flows through quaggan!
Event failure
Risen Lieutenant: Quaggan claims this altar for Zhaitan with quaggan's own blood.
Risen Lieutenant: His power will course through it and spread across all of Orr!
