- The Oasis
- Asura Priory Researcher greets
- Greetings and salutations.
- Knowledge is the greatest treasure.
- Truth and knowledge are two different things.
- History never lies. Historians however....
- Asura Priory Researcher found in the Waste Hollows
- A word of warning. Don't know how much experience you've had with the Risen, but you'll want to give them a wide berth.
What are you doing here?
- The Priory sent me to observe the agrarian techniques of the Risen farmers. To note how farming techniques have changed in the two and a half centuries since Orr disappeared into the sea.
What have you noticed?
- If you watch them, they do the same thing--tilling away at dead, barren soil with old rotting implements--day and night. Despite the fact that nothing can grow here. It's just what they know to do.
They never stop?
- They will stop...if you get too close. Then they use that farm tool to attack you. Not stopping until one of you is a lifeless heap on the same dead soil. If it's you, they simply go back to their tilling.
- The tragedy it they only kill because we're trespassing on their land. If we'd left them to their existence, they'd just be farmers. Corrupted, but peaceful. In a way, we're making them killers.
- Zhaitan made them killers. They were peaceful before they were Risen.
- Then I'll just leave them to their task.
- I'll try.
