Optional dialogue with Rytlock
- Rytlock Brimstone: Looks like you're ready to get back to it, Commander.

- Rytlock Brimstone: I need to talk to you, but Aurene said she's got something important to show you.
Talking to Rytlock again

Entering Aurene's chamber

- Aurene: Tyrians who align themselves with Elder Dragons historically bring disaster. Present company excluded.
- Aurene: Jormag's motives are unknowable, even to me. Will they end the cycle of rebirth, or will they bring...
- <Character name>: Annihilation?
- Aurene: Mm. I searched the Scrying Pool for answers, combing through visions of the past for some way to break the cycle.
