Lore & Dialog
Nalicana tells you, "Greetings, I am Nalicana, the Seer of the Yalain."
Nalicana tells you, "Due to several factors, including both the return of the... altered... Empyreans, as well as Geraine's manipulations of time via the Book of Eibhil, the Light has empowered several Seers, including myself."
Nalicana tells you, "We may, in turn, empower those who prove their worth to walk the ancient Empyrean Paths, and gain power from the Light itself, known as Luminance."
Nalicana tells you, "The different eras of Empyrean history have each empowered a Path, from our beginnings in the Paths of the Falatacot, through the more recent Dericost and Haebrean Paths, up to the Path of the Yalain."
Nalicana tells you, "To prove your worth, and be empowered to gain Luminance, my task for you is fairly straightforward. There is an Undead, known as Battle Lord Gregor. He is one of Geraine's top nobles, and is the overseer of the forces which now include the beings called Gurog."
Nalicana tells you, "Hidden deep in the area held by these Gurog, he organizes the forces Geraine has chosen to put forth. Find him, defeat him, and bring me his Mnemosyne. Contained therein, we hope to find much knowledge on what Geraine is up to."
Nalicana tells you, "The Gurog have emerged in an area of the mountains of Northern Osteth. You'll find the Battle Lord deep in the caves there."
You allow Nalicana to examine your Battle Lord Gregor's Mnemosyne.
You hand over all of your Battle Lord Gregor's Mnemosynes.
Nalicana tells you, "Thank you for this. Lord Asheron should be able to learn much from it, to help counter Geraine's mad schemes."
Nalicana tells you, "You have completed the task I have set before you. Now, it is time for you to gain access to the Paths."
Nalicana touches your brow, and you feel a great upwelling of light and heat fill your entire form. Just when it feels like you may burst from the pressure inside you, the feeling fades down to a comfortable warmth.
Nalicana tells you, "Welcome into the Light. You now may gain inner Luminance from your adventures, if they be truly challenging to your strength."
Nalicana tells you, "This Luminance, in turn, may be used to empower both auras and items for your benefit."
Nalicana tells you, "You may always come to me, for the Path of the Yalain is open to all who have proven themselves to the Light."
Nalicana tells you, "In addition, you may also seek out one of the more... specialized... paths from the history of the Empyrean."
Nalicana tells you, "You must choose only one specialty path, for when you choose to walk one Path, you lose access to the others."
Nalicana tells you, "This book will explain the details."
Nalicana gives you Luminance, and the Paths of the Empyrean.
Nalicana tells you, "I see that you have not yet chosen to walk one of the more specialized paths yet."
Nalicana tells you, "There are special benefits that can be gained by choosing to follow one of the Seers of the past cultures of the Empyrean."
Nalicana tells you, "The Seer of the Light Falatacot, the Shade of Lady Adja, can be found in the Cathedral of Ithaenc. Her specialties focus on furthering your resistance to damage, and your skill at the skills you have specialized in."
Nalicana tells you, "The Seer of the Dark Falatacot, Ka'hiri, can be found near the town of Sawato. Her specialties focus on furthering your ability to damage others, and your skill at the skills you have specialized in."
Nalicana tells you, "The Seer of the Dericost, Liam of Gelid, can be found in the entrance of Frore. His specialties focus on furthering your ability to damage others, and your ability to critically damage others."
Nalicana tells you, "The Seer of the Haebrean, Lord Tyragar, can be found in Silyun. His specialties focus on furthering your resistance to damage, and your resistance to critical damage."
Nalicana tells you, "As for myself, I will empower any and all who have proven themselves and absorbed the Luminance necessary to empower themselves or items to help them. I recommend also following one of the other, more specialized paths."
Nalicana tells you, "If you wish to leave one specialty path for another, speak with the Seer you wish to follow, and they will tell you what they require in order to induct you onto their Path."
Nalicana tells you, "Be warned: To change one's Path, once chosen, will disrupt your existing attunements to the Light. All of your specialty path auras will fade."
You allow Nalicana to examine your Blank Augmentation Gem.
You waited too long to answer the question!
You decline to empower yourself with Luminance at this time.
Do you wish to sacrifice a Blank Augmentation Gem in order to gain 10,000 Luminance?
Nalicana tells you, "Very well, I will convert this into Luminance for you."
You hand over 1 of your Blank Augmentation Gems.
You've earned 10,000 Luminance.
Some Background on Nalicana :
To represent the Order of Dereth, Lord Asheron had sent his pupil Nalicana. The woman was young by Empyrean standards, not yet three centuries old, and her height was slight, scarcely nine spans. Of course, Empyrean standards were not human standards, so the woman looked as if she were seated in chair made for a child. Ciandra was still unsure what to think of her. Ciandra did not share the prejudice some felt towards Empyreans, but she still wondered how this woman had escaped from portalspace while the rest of her race remained trapped.
The primary of the Kingdoms was the Order of Dereth, a group that in some way or another, had existed since the first humans' arrival to this island; though the Order was led by the great Asheron Realaidain, he was often represented in official functions by his second, an Empyrean pupil from ancient times by the name of Nalicana.
