During Legend's Quest

First time/Player lost their Dark Dagger

  • (A thick, green mist seems to emanate from the water...)
  • (It slowly congeals into the shape of a body...)
  • (Which slowly floats towards you.)
  • (In a rasping, barely audible voice you hear the entity speak.)
  • Echned Zekin: Who disturbs the rocks of Zekin?
  • (There seems to be something slightly familiar about this presence.)
    • Er...me?
      • Player: Er...me?
      • Echned Zekin: So, you desire the water that flows here?
        • Yes, I need it for my quest.
          • Player: Yes, I need it for my quest.
          • Echned Zekin: The water babbles so loudly and I am already so tortured.
          • Echned Zekin: I cannot abide the sound so I have stoppered the streams...
          • Echned Zekin: Care you not for my torment and pain?
            • Why are you tortured?
              • Player: Why are you tortured?
              • Echned Zekin: I was robbed of my life by a cruel man called Viyeldi
              • Echned Zekin: And I hunger for revenge upon him....
              • Echned Zekin: It is long since I have walked this world looking for him
              • Echned Zekin:to haunt him and raise terror in his life...
              • Echned Zekin: but tragedy of tragedies, his spirit is neither living or dead
              • Echned Zekin: he serves the needs of the source.
              • Echned Zekin: He died trying to collect the water from this stream,
              • Echned Zekin: and now I hang in torment for eternity.
                • What can I do about that?
                  • (See below)
                • Can't I just get some water?
                  • Player: Can't I just get some water?
                  • Echned Zekin: Yes, you may get some water, but first you must help me.
                  • Echned Zekin: Revenge is the only thing that keeps my spirit in this place
                  • Echned Zekin: help me take vengeance on Viyeldi and I will gladly remove
                  • Echned Zekin: the rocks and allow you access to the water
                  • Echned Zekin: What say you?
                    • I'll do what I must to get the water.
                      • (See below)
                    • No, I won't take someone's life for you.
                      • (See below)
            • What can I do about that?
              • (See below)
        • Not really, I just wondered if I could push that big rock.
          • Player: Not really, I just wondered if I could push that big rock.
          • Echned Zekin: The rock must remain, it stoppers the waters that babble.
          • Echned Zekin: The noise troubles my soul and I seek some rest...
          • Echned Zekin: rest from this terrible torture...
            • Why are you tortured?
              • (See above)
            • What can I do about that?
              • (See below)
    • Who's asking?
      • Player: Who's asking?
      • (The hooded, headless figure faces you...it's quite unnerving...)
      • Echned Zekin: I am Echned Zekin...and I seek peace from my eternal torture...
        • What can I do about that?
          • (See below)
        • Do I know you?
          • Player: Do I know you?
          • Echned Zekin: I am long since dead and buried, lost in the passages of time.
          • Echned Zekin: Long since have my kin departed and have I been forgotten...
          • Echned Zekin: It is unlikely that you know me...
          • Echned Zekin: I am a poor tortured soul looking for rest and eternal peace...
            • Why are you tortured?
              • (See above)
            • What can I do about that?
              • Player: What can I do about that?
              • Echned Zekin: I was brutally murdered by a viscious[sic] man called Viyeldi
              • Echned Zekin: I sense his presence near by, but I know that he is no longer living
              • Echned Zekin: My spirit burns with the need for revenge, I shall not rest while
              • Echned Zekin: I sense his spirit still.
              • Echned Zekin: If you seek the pure water, you must ensure he meets his end.
              • Echned Zekin: If not, you will never see the source and your journey back must ye start.
              • Echned Zekin: What is your answer? Will ye put an end to Viyeldi for me?
                • I'll do what I must to get the water.
                  • Player: I'll do what I must to get the water.
                  • (The shapeless spirit seems to crackle with energy.)
                  • Echned Zekin: You would release me from my torment and the source would
                  • Echned Zekin: be available to you.
                  • Echned Zekin: However, you must realise that this will be no easy task.
                  • Echned Zekin: I will furnish you with a weapon which will help you
                  • Echned Zekin: to achieve your aims...
                  • Echned Zekin: Here, take this...
                  • (The spiritless body waves an arm and in front of you appears)
                  • (a dark black dagger made of pure obsidian.)
                  • Echned Zekin: To complete this task you must use this weapon on Viyeldi.
                  • (You take the dagger and place it in your inventory.)
                  • Echned Zekin: Use the dagger I have provided for you to complete this task.
                  • Echned Zekin: and then bring it to me when Viyeldi is dead.
                    • Ok, I'll do it.
                      • Player: Ok, I'll do it.
                      • The formless shape shimmers brightly...
                      • Echned Zekin: You will benefit from this decision, the source will be
                      • Echned Zekin: opened to you
                      • Echned Zekin: Bring the dagger back to me when you have completed this task.
                    • I've changed my mind, I can't do it.
                      • Player: I've changed my mind, I can't do it.
                        Echned Zekin: The decision is yours but you will have no other way to
                        Echned Zekin: get to the source.
                        Echned Zekin: The pure water you seek will forever be out of your reach.
                        • I'll do what I must to get the water.
                          • (See above)
                        • No, I won't take someone's life for you
                          • (See below)
                • No, I won't take someone's life for you.
                  • Player: No, I won't take someone's life for you.
                  • Echned Zekin: Such noble thoughts, but Viyeldi is not alive.
                  • Echned Zekin: He is merely a vessel by which the power of the source
                  • Echned Zekin: protects itself.
                  • Echned Zekin: If that is your decision, so be it, but expect not to
                  • Echned Zekin: gain the water from this stream.
        • Why are you tortured?
          • (See above)
