I go now, to seek out the gods themselves!

— Randall Greyston

Randall Greyston is a scholar from the Durmand Priory who focused his studies on the Seers. He goes to explore the Ruined City of Arah to learn more about the Seers and the Bloodstone and is ultimately consumed by the largest Bloodstone shard's power and becomes a threat to his allies. After he is defeated, he claims he will go and seek out the gods. Before his disappearance, Greyston had trained a novice, Historian Tranton, who succeeded him as the Priory's leading expert on the Seers.

In The Ruined City of Arah
I study the Seers, an enigmatic, magical race. I believe they were responsible for the forging of the Bloodstone.

What can you tell me about the Seers?
Not much is known. They were an elder race, alive when the Elder Dragons first awoke. They allied with the Forgotten, the dwarves, the jotun, and the mursaat to resist the Elder Dragons and survived.

Weren't the Seers and mursaat enemies?
Indeed. They worked together once, but the mursaat betrayed the other races and fled from the world, returning as the Unseen Ones.

What can you tell me about their Bloodstone? (same as "Tell me more about the Bloodstone.")
Talk more option tango.png
What is your mission here in Arah? (same as "What brings you to Arah?")
Talk end option tango.png
I see. Thanks for the information.

What can you tell me about the Bloodstone? (same as "Tell me more about the Bloodstone.")

What brings you to Arah? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
Interesting. Thank you.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more about the Bloodstone.
I believe that the Seers gathered up all uncorrupted magic, including that of the jotun, and put it within the original Bloodstone.

I thought the human gods created the Bloodstone
The gods found the stone and used it to give magic to my people. When humans couldn't handle it, the gods broke it into parts.

What brought you to this place to begin with? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
That's an interesting new perspective on the human gods.

What can you tell me about the Seers? (same as above)

What brings you to Arah? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
That's an intriguing theory. Thank you.
(After defeating Kaisar, High Priest of Balthazar)
Talk more option tango.png
What was that creature?
A corrupted avatar of Balthazar, the god of war. Zhaitan's power was immense to have corrupted an aspect of the gods.
Talk more option tango.png
What brought you to Arah to begin with? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
No question. Zhaitan was a monstrously powerful entity.
(After defeating Vahid, High Priest of Melandru)
Talk more option tango.png
What did we just fight?
A corrupted avatar of Melandru, the god of nature. How powerful are these Elder Dragons?
Talk more option tango.png
What brought you to Arah to begin with? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
Their power is terrifying.
(After defeating Farnax, High Priestess of Lyssa)
Talk more option tango.png
Do you know what that was?
A corrupted avatar of Lyssa, the twin god of beauty and illusion. No wonder my gods fled this world.

What brought you to Arah to begin with? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
That really was disturbing.
(After defeating Ghasem, High Priest of Grenth)
Talk more option tango.png
What did we just fight?
A corrupted avatar of the death-god, Grenth. Someone must find our gods and tell them of this atrocity!
Talk more option tango.png
What brought you to Arah to begin with? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
If only we could, in the meantime, we should press on.
(After defeating Simin, High Priestess of Dwayna)
Talk more option tango.png
That last creature was an abomination.
That was a corrupted avatar of Dwayna, goddess of life and the air. I must find a way to speak with my gods and seek their help.

What brought you to Arah to begin with? (goes to beginning)
Talk end option tango.png
I hope you find that way.
Talk end option tango.png
That's an exciting idea.
