Dialogue[edit]

When looking for help for Protect Cerin while he investigates Serenity Temple
I require the company of a strapping young person such as yourself for my excursion. Care to join me?
Tick green.png
I'd love to join you.
Talk more option tango.png
What are we doing exactly?
We'll be embarking on an expedition of discovery and adventure. I need someone to fend off the little ghost problem, and you look like the perfect candidate.
Tick green.png
Sure. Why not? I'll help.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll sit this out.
Talk end option tango.png
I really must be going.
During Protect Cerin while he investigates Serenity Temple
I'm ready to battle these ghosts and unveil Serenity Temples secrets. How about you?
Talk end option tango.png
Sure.
During Defeat the angry spirit of Kendrick Redstaff
The rage coming off that ghost makes me woozy. Get rid of it, before I'm overcome. That's Kendrick Redstaff, guardian of Serenity Temple. So much anger.
Dignity
C'mon. Get your head straight. We need you.
You're right. I have to focus. I can't let Redstaff's fury overtake me. I'm strong enough to handle this. Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. Hang in there.
Talk end option tango.png
No time to talk, there's a ghost to kill.
After Defeat the angry spirit of Kendrick Redstaff
What a fascinating find. It's a work of art unto itself, and I'm fairly certain it was meant to be a learning tool.

What do you have to offer?
Talk end option tango.png
I'd rather stay away from mysterious scrolls retrieved from the Brand.
During Collect artifacts from Serenity Temple for Cerin
You look capable. Care to lend a hand in a matter of inestimable importance?
Talk give option tango.png
I have artifacts for you. (if you have Serenity Temple Artifacts in your inventory)
Talk more option tango.png
What do you have in mind?
I require several explorers to head west into the Brand to the temple ruins and collect artifacts for my studies. The highest concentration of them is just down there. We will observe from this spot.

What's special about this site?
This is, or was, a famous human site known as Serenity Temple. I'm considered an expert on it. Are you at all curious about it?
Talk more option tango.png
Definitely curious. Tell me more.
This site experienced not one, not two, but three cataclysmic events. The Searing destroyed the city of Ascalon. Adelbern's Foefire destroyed the Ascalonian people, and the dragon destroyed the land itself.
Talk more option tango.png
What exactly was the Searing?
The Searing resulted from a charr ritual. Magical crystals rained down and crushed everything. The devastation and ensuing charr invasion pushed wave after wave of refugees into Kryta. They left much behind.
Talk back option tango.png
I want to ask another question.
Talk more option tango.png
You've convinced me. I'll lend a hand.
The annals of history will record your deeds this day.
Talk end option tango.png
Sure, anytime.
Talk end option tango.png
I wish you luck, but I must be going.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more about the Foefire.
Ascalon's king carried a magical sword. When invading charr broke down his gates, he killed his own people and cursed them to roam the world as ghosts, so they could continue to fight the war from beyond death.

I want to ask another question.

You've convinced me. I'll help collect artifacts.

Talk end option tango.png
Sure, anytime.
Talk end option tango.png
Wow. His own people. Wow.
Talk more option tango.png
What did the dragon do?
In 1320 AE, the crystal dragon awoke and took flight. He flew south, scarring the land and all living creatures in his wake. He created the Dragonbrand, and his Branded creatures still roam here today.

Sure, anytime.
Talk end option tango.png
Ouch. I still don't think I want to help right now, though.
Talk more option tango.png
I prefer to get my hands dirty. I'll go dig for artifacts.
The annals of history will record your deeds this day.

After defeating Kendrick Redstaff
I'm a very busy man. Did you need something?
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to ask about the ghosts you've seen.
These ghosts are history in motion. I've become quite fond of them as I documented their stories. One is a young soldier and another, an ecclesiastic of the Dwayna mysteries. The most powerful is a mage.
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to hear more about the soldier.
A fascinating study, this unknown soldier. He bears a curious version of Ascalon's coat of arms, so we suspect he was a member of Ascalon's Chosen, the guild of King Adelbern himself.
Talk more option tango.png
What's the deal with the ecclesiastic?
She appears rarely. By my best estimations, I believe her to be Priestess Rashenna. I've heard reports from necromancers who have seen her near the Serenity ruins.
Talk more option tango.png
A mage? How interesting. Tell me more.
Kendrick Redstaff was easy to identify. He often moans about Rashenna, the priestess of Dwayna. She is well-documented in temple records recovered centuries ago. He's listed as the keeper of the temple.
Talk more option tango.png
What can you tell me about this region?
This place is a perfect storm of tragedy. First, Ascalon was decimated by the Searing, and then Kralkatorrik cruised through and corrupted the land. Ascalon's story is a real tear-jerker.
Talk more option tango.png
Is it true one of the searing crystals still exists?
It's true. We think it was one of the largest to fall on Old Ascalon. It created a crater of impressive size. We're still identifying its mineral content and testing its properties.
Talk more option tango.png
What's the story behind Serenity Temple?
Ascalonians worshipped the human pantheon there, right up to the moment when the charr brought the sky down on them in the Searing. Serenity was crushed to rubble.
Talk more option tango.png
What's that structure southwest of here?
That's Kinar Fort. It's run by the Sentinels, a special branch of the charr legions. They are charged with keeping Branded creatures from spilling out of the Brand into the surrounding countryside.
Talk more option tango.png
What's the deal with Branded creatures?
That's the most heart-breaking bit of all. When Kralkatorrik corrupted this swath of land, every living thing was affected, including beasts and intelligent races such as charr and ogres.
Talk end option tango.png
I can come back later.
