2002/05 - Martine Attacks
Related topics: Martine
|Introduced: Hidden Vein||Previous Event - All Live Events - Next Event|
During the Hidden Vein event, Martine appeared in the Abandoned Mine at peak times when it was very busy with players. At first he wasn't hostile, but players soon started to attack, forcing Martine to defend himself with powerful ring spells that could smite. After an attack, corpses littered the floor and the massacre of players also meant Martine had levelled up extremely quickly, intially appearing as a lvl 750 creature and then 900+ later on.
Later on in the event, Martine would show up at various locations and ask players to help him kill a faction of Virindi that were stalking him. The Virindi Renegades would drop tokens that could be handed to Martine (provided he didn't kill you first) for rewards such as Tiny Shards, Quiddity Ingots and spell components.
While Martine seemed friendly at times, there appeared to be no pattern in Martine's bahavior; if he wasn't doing a random speech, he was demanding a tax of Singularity Keys, or requesting aid in killing the Renegades.

Lore & Dialog
Martine on the attack
- Martine says, "You cannot escape me."
- Martine says, "Fool"
- "You are utterly destroyed by Martine's attack"
Martine doing a speech in the "Subway"
- Martine snickers.
- Martine says, "Asheron...is a fossil. And one that has left a shallow print upon the world. He brought the Olthoi and they drove his rave into near extinction. They are kept alive only by our life force. Trapped behind veils created by my other would-be masters."
- A chill spreads across the area.
- Martine's bones crack.
- Martine says, "And you...sniveling maggots quiver in anticipation that he will walk amongst you, come to your aid and save you once again from a new darkness that is spreading across your land."
- Martine says, "I am no darkness, I am the light. I am the savior of your kind. But you...have fallen prey to his wiles. To his words, to past deeds. He ushered the Hopeslayer back into the pit. HA!"
- Martine says, "Twist...twist...twist...the lock will finally pop open when you try hard enough. But you are too blind to see this. You are given over to him, not yourselves and that...sickens me.
- Martine says, "It was you, and you, and all the other Isparians that stood as one and rallied together beneath a banner that he created. But it was you that struck the final blow that did his work for him. You were his tools. Implements of extraction."
Martine demanding Singularity Keys
- Martine says, "I have decided that I need to be paid for my continued patience with you. Bring me keys. Singularity keys."
- Martine looks about.
- Martine cackles madly.
- Martine says, "Not all at once, now."
- Martine says, "Pain and suffering, glory and joy, glory and joy, glory and joy."
- Martine says, "Bring the gifts to the madman, or see the world through his eyes."
- Martine says, "Bring me the keys, or die."
- Martine screams and the air splits in two swallowing him into a void.
- Martine says, "Greetings Isparian."
- Martine says, "Have you seen any Virindi about?"
- Martine says, "Ah...the area is safe."
- Martine says, "East of town not west.. my mind.. my mind.."
- Martine places his face in his hands.
- As his hands pull away from his face the flesh on the mask stretches. Quickly, Martine, places the mask onto his face.
- Martine says, "Help me..."
- Martine says, "They are around here and it calls to them."
- Martine says, "Kill them, the Virindi that reside near here. Kill them."
- You give Martine Renegade's Token.
- Martine says, "ahh.. a fine specimen."
- Martine gives you a Tiny Shard.
- You give Martine Renegade Token.
- Martine says, "I shall receive my tokens."
- Martine gives you Quiddty Ignot.
- You give Martine Renegade's Token.
- Martine gives you Henbane.
- Wind whips through the area carrying a scream that emanates all around Martine. The scream reaches a crescendo and he is gone.
