Lore & Dialog
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Greetings, I am Shadow Hunter Killcrane. Not a very uplifting title for a Knight of the Golden Flame, I know, but mine is a grim task."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "High Queen Strathelar has bid myself and others like me to follow the shadow wherever it goes. This is a daunting task to be certain."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Of late, my journeys have led me to following the actions of the Order of the Raven Hand. Their activities have stirred again, particularly near the energies of the center of the Obsidian Plains."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "I tracked a heavily laden party of their agents to the Singularity Bore not but a handful of days ago."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "My Queen's orders were to find the source of the activity of the Raven Hand. My Lady did declare that I may seek the aid of others if need be."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Travel to the Singularity Caul, seek out the Order of the Raven Hand, and find what it is that now draws those Shadow-worshipping miscreants to that island and return to me with your findings. Reports from adventurers tell of cultist campsites in the southern, eastern, and western portions of the island."
You give Sarkin Killcrane Vestibule Lock.
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "So many adventurers have brought me pieces of this item, and it is only now that I see it completed that I remember where I've seen it before."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "You've been to the Soul Crystal Vaults, correct? You know - Fenmalain, Caulnalain, Shendolain, those three. Each house a gate that requires a key. Looking at this, it appears to be part of one such gate. Yet... this one is on the Singularity Caul."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "With this lock in our hands, we can assume that one such gate exists on the Singularity Caul, likely in an incomplete state."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "We know that these gates guarded some of the scattered pieces of the Crystal Array that were used to contain the essence of the Hopeslayer. It is not so far fetched to think that other similar arrays were created to contain other horrors."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Wait... now this is odd... no offense to you, but it seems as though you put this together incorrectly. I've spent a good deal of time studying the gates; I should be of some help here."
You've earned 173,802,475 experience. (231)
Sarkin Killcrane gives you Vestibule Lock.
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Here! Now go and seek out this new Shadow gate on the Singularity Caul. Infiltrate the dark places the gate will lead you to. I have heard tell of yet another concentration of Raven Hand forces in the northern reaches of that accursed place."
You allow Sarkin Killcrane to examine your Vestibule Lock.
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "No, I have no need for this. Take it with you to the Singularity Caul and seek out the gateway it was once a part of. I have heard tell of yet another concentration of Raven Hand forces in the northern reaches of that accursed place."
You give Nightmare Gate Vestibule Lock.
The Nightmare lock fits into the front of the gate.
The air around the Nightmare Gate seems to warp momentarily as you are drawn into portal space.
You touch the device, and immediately your sense of reality begins to swirl.
The two artifacts link together effortlessly.
You give Kuyiza bint Zayi the Translator Unreadable Dericost Tome.
Kuyiza begins translating and transcribing the text for you, happily chatting along as she works.
Kuyiza bint Zayi the Translator tells you, "It has been such a long while since I have had something new to work with. People usually bring me bits of parchment from Frore... not that I mind Frore..."
Kuyiza bint Zayi the Translator tells you, "Sometimes they bring me something about the undead scholar Rytheran... but I've seen most of what is said in those texts already..."
Kuyiza bint Zayi the Translator tells you, "Then there was that whole Elemental business... well... I wasn't able to leave my cottage because they were everywhere for a time..."
Kuyiza bint Zayi the Translator tells you, "And who would have thought that the Dericost would help us seal up the tunnels of the... oh my..."
Kuyiza stops mid sentence, rapidly finishes her transcriptions and seals the tome with wax.
Kuyiza bint Zayi the Translator tells you, "You are working for the Shadow Hunter Killcrane, yes? Quickly, take this directly to him. Don't dawdle. What is in this tome is of great import."
Kuyiza bint Zayi the Translator gives you Translated Dericost Tome.
You allow Sarkin Killcrane to examine your Unreadable Dericost Tome.
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "You found this within the place I sent you to? Interesting. Please take this to Kuyiza bint Zayi in Zaikhal to get it translated. I am many things, but a scholar of the Dericost script I am not."
You give Sarkin Killcrane Journal of High Archon Kraest.
Shadow Hunter Killcrane cracks the seal of the journal and reads over its contents quickly.
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Ah, the infamous High Archon Kraest... hmm? You haven't heard of him before now? I suppose you wouldn't, few outside of the Raven Hand know of him, and those who do are likely ones such as myself."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "This journal contains Kraest's notes. His goal seems to be to unleash some trapped essence associated with the darkness. The text gives a better description of what exactly this being is... better than the Dericost texts I have managed to get my hands upon recently."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Kraest calls this being "the Spear of Mukkir." I can't say as I heard of such a thing before. Though from what he has written, it is apparently a vicious and frightening creature."
Sarkin Killcrane gives you Writ of Refuge.
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "It is clear from this journal that Kraest accomplished what he sought to do on the Singularity Caul. He has shattered the first crystal he believes to be keeping this creature at bay."
Sarkin Killcrane gives you Journal of High Archon Kraest.
Sarkin Killcrane gives you 3 Trade Notes (250,000).
You give Sarkin Killcrane Translated Dericost Tome.
Killcrane gently unlocks the sealed translation and quickly skims the bulk of Kuyiza bint Zayi's translation.
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "A Dericost text... Kuyiza always manages to come through on these types of artifacts."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "Judging from her translation, this appears to be an account of some creature. Something powerful and driven by the darkness. The text doesn't do very well to describe it physically, merely stating that this creature could bring out the fear on those it fought."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "It was a beast of grand stature. Those it confronted were felled in the conflict or driven mad with fear."
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "If the Raven Hand has managed to release something, or weaken the bonds that hold it, I fear we must act quickly."
Sarkin Killcrane gives you Account of the Spear of Mukkir.
Sarkin Killcrane gives you 3 Trade Notes (250,000).
Sarkin Killcrane tells you, "For now, it appears my search is at a halt. Whatever the goal of the Raven Hand on the Singularity Caul, it seems as though they have achieved it."
You've earned 225,827,294 experience. (247)
