First time[edit | edit source]

Talking to Acting Guildmaster Reiniger for the first time[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Are you here to sign up with the Archaeology Guild? We've just recently received some serious funding, and we're in need of as much help as we can get.
  • Player: Maybe. Why would I want to become an archaeologist, though?
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: You want the sales pitch, right? Need a reason to get down in the dirt with the rest of us working schmoes? Well, I'm sure one of these four core aspects of archaeology will at least get you to give it a shot: wealth, power, fame and stories! Wealth is the easy one. Not only will you find artefacts with their own inherent value, we also have a healthy trade going on between guild members. Any materials you excavate, you can sell to other archaeologists! Power comes in the form of any magical relics you discover in your career. I have no doubt an adventurous sort such as you could gain great value out of increasing your power! Fame comes in the form of being the first to discover something of note or importance. There's more than one way to become a world-renowned archaeologist, and it isn't all just about being the most experienced of us! And finally, the stories. As an archaeologist, you will uncover long forgotten tales of people and places from the past, events lost to time and rediscover things both mysterious and wonderful!
  • Player: Well, I'm sure at least one of those motivates me! Do I need any qualifications?
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Those can come later. I'm sure we can start you off on the basics and you can learn on the job.
  • Player: Great. So, er, what are the basics?
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: First off, you're going to need some tools!
  • The tutor hands you a set of Archaeologist's tools and you place them on your tool belt.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Those tools I just handed you will cover most of your needs - uncovering excavations and restoring damaged artefacts, mostly. However, we've been developing a new tool to do the actual excavation - strong enough to dig out materials quickly, but delicate, for when you need to be careful around an artefact. Take this bronze mattock to start with...
  • The tutor hands you a Bronze mattock.
  • Player receives Bronze mattock.
  • [Left-click the mattock to add it to your tool belt.]

Adding the bronze mattock to the tool belt[edit | edit source]

  • You add the mattock to the tool belt.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Now, excavation is one of the two main aspects of archaeology. You'll find a number of excavation hotspots across the various dig sites. Excavation hotspots have many names, but the first step is always to uncover them, like that Senntisten soil over there. Your main goal will be to slowly dig up an artefact from them, but while doing so you will obtain a number of other useful finds. We'll discuss the value of these as we go.
  • The blue bar above your head while you excavate shows your progress towards discovering your next damaged artefact. While excavating, you will also find materials, which are used to restore these damaged artefacts.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: To start with, you will need to uncover each new excavation hotspot that you find. Try it on the pile of Senntisten soil just north of me here...
  • Overhead hint arrow shifts north to the Senntisten soil

Using the bronze mattock on Reiniger[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: You should add that to your tool belt, then you'll never be without a mattock when you need one!

  • Senntisten soil becomes centurion remains.
  • Player: Neat! I've uncovered an excavation. Now to start excavating at it!

Talking to Reiniger after uncovering the Centurion remains[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Good start! Now the spot is uncovered, you can start excavating there! Give it a go and show me what you find...

General excavating[edit | edit source]

First material (imperial iron)[edit | edit source]

  • You find some imperial iron
  • Player: Ah, a material!

Talking to Reiniger before finding the centurion's dress sword[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I found a material.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Nice work! You will need lots of materials like this in order to restore any damaged artefacts you dig up. Keep excavating until you discover an artefact!
  • Materials come in many forms, but all of them will be needed for at least one artefact restoration. In the excavation here, you can expect to find imperial iron and purpleheart wood.

Centurion's dress sword[edit | edit source]

  • Player receives Centurion's dress sword (damaged).
  • You find Centurion's dress sword (damaged)!

Talking to Reiniger after finding the sword[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: See, Player, you don't need any qualifications for this. Now, let's inspect that damaged artefact you discovered.

Attempting to excavate more[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I think I've excavated all I need for now. I should talk to Acting Guildmaster Reiniger about what comes next.

Talking to Reiniger after destroying the sword[edit | edit source]

  • The tutor hands you a Centurion's dress sword (damaged).

  • (Continues below)

Talking to Acting Guildmaster after finding soil, materials, and sword[edit | edit source]

  • Player: So, I found some soil, materials and a damaged artefact! Upon inspection, it looks like I will need some more materials before I can restore the artefact, though.
  • (With less than 10 space in backpack:)
    • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Well, one way to find more materials is to screen any soil you found while excavating.
    • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: I have some more soil for you to screen. Come back after you have freed up some space to take it.
  • (With at least 10 space in backpack:)
    • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Well, one way to find more materials is to screen any soil you found while excavating. I have some more soil for you to screen.

    • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Head over to the screening station and screen that soil!

Screening soil[edit | edit source]

While screening[edit | edit source]

  • Soil screened:x/10
  • You find some Imperial iron.
  • You find some Purpleheart wood.

Once 10 soil has been screeened[edit | edit source]

  • Right, that should be enough screening. What did you find?
  • Player walks back to Acting Guildmaster.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Screening is a good way to find any materials you might have missed, among other things. The screening station will help you separate the soil from any useful items still hidden within it.
  • (If the player destroyed the Centurion's dress sword (damaged):)
    • The tutor hands you a Centurion's dress sword (damaged).

Introduction to restoration[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: So, now for the other main aspect of archaeology - restoration!
  • (If the player destroyed the materials you uncovered:)
    • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: You'll need some more materials to restore that damaged artefact. I have some spare handy you can have. Here...
    • (If the player doesn't have enough space in backpack:)
      • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Oh, but you'll need some more free space to take this imperial iron.
    • (If the player has enough space in backpack:)
      • The player receives <number> purpleheart wood and <number> imperial iron.
      • (Continues below)
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Damaged artefacts require a lot of materials to restore them back to a pristine condition. To help, we have a material storage container that you can use to store any materials you discover.
  • All damaged artefacts you discover while excavating can be inspected, in order to see which materials you will need in order to restore that artefact, and in what quantity.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: See if you can restore that damaged artefact you dug up! First, check out the material storage container, then make use of the nearby archaeologist's workbench to restore that damaged artefact.
  • View the contents of the material storage container.
  • Hint arrow added to the material storage container

  • Hint arrow is added to Acting Guildmaster

Relics[edit | edit source]

Observing The Mortal Cup[edit | edit source]

  • Player: What is this thing? I can feel the power emanating from it, and pulling me towards that strange monolith at the centre of the Archaeology campus. I should probably show this to Acting Guildmaster Reiniger...

Talking to Acting Guildmaster after having lost rewards[edit | edit source]

  • (If the relic has been lost:)
    • (Without space in backpack:)
      • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: You have to be more careful with powerful magic relics! I'll keep hold of this one until you have free space to take it back.

    • (With space in backpack:)

Talking to Acting Guildmaster with the rewards[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Velucia handed me the relic in return for the artefact I gave her. It feels like it's drawing me towards the monolith.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Really? Now, that is unusual. We've been researching that mysterious monolith ever since Guildmaster Tony's disappearance. He was messing with it when he disappeared! Everyone has been too wary to get close to it, though, but if that relic is pulling you towards it...
  • (Continues below)

Directing to the monolith[edit | edit source]

  • (If the relic has been lost:)
    • The tutor hands you The Mortal Cup.
    • (Continues below)
  • (If chronotes have been lost:)
    • The tutor hands you some Chronotes.
    • (Continues below)
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Hmm, we should see if your connection with the mysterious monolith is any different. Be careful, though!
  • A hint arrow is added to the monolith.

Interacting with the mysterious monolith[edit | edit source]

Without the relic[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hmm, maybe I should grab that relic Velucia gave me.

With the relic[edit | edit source]

  • Camera fades out, shows the player interacting with the monolith, which has a powerful energy reaction.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Amazing! You weren't pulled inside the monolith!
  • Player: Wait! That was a possibility?
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Um... Well, that's how Guildmaster Tony vanished. I probably should have been clearer about that part... We've made it off limits to the rest of the guild's members...but there was something about how that relic drew you to it and how confident you were. I just had a feeling things would work out this time...and look, I wasn't wrong.
  • Player: Wow. How many interns have you been through?
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: I'm sorry, okay, don't judge me. We've been accident free since Tony's disappearance. Anyway, let's see if you can tap into the monolith and access the power that relic contained.
  • (If chronotes have been lost:)
    • The tutor hands you some Chronotes.
    • (Continues below)
  • Relic Power interface shows up, having unlocked the access to the Font of Life relic power.

Harnessing power of the relic[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: You managed to access the power that relic contained. I'm impressed Player! Here I was thinking I was recruiting just another intern today. I wasn't expecting you to go one better than our very own Guildmaster! I've only assumed the position of Acting Guildmaster, because I believe Tony can and will return to us. That said, I feel you have the potential to climb up our ranks very quickly - you've a natural affinity with this stuff. Speaking of which, come and meet me in the main campus building just west of here to claim your first qualification. We need to get you working at a dig site pronto!
  • Screen fades out and back in.
  • Hint arrow is added to the main Archaeology campus.

Guild[edit | edit source]

Talking to Acting Guildmaster inside guild[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: I believe you have the potential to become a world-renowned archaeologist, Player. You're a natural. More than that, you have a connection with that monolith out there - something nobody else has. I bet there are many powerful relics you could sacrifice to it. Feel free to make use of the Guildmaster's office upstairs. We're all making use of it for now, until Tony returns. Before you go, let me give you a quick tour of what's on offer here in the office
  • Camera pans to Dig sites map table.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: This table contains a map of all archaeological dig sites. You may use it as a method of fast travel.
  • Camera pans to Matty Ock.
  • Acting guildmaster Reiniger: Matty Ock sells all of your basic mattocks to get you well on your way on your journey.
  • Camera pans to Ezreal.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: When you get new qualifications, there will be more available for you to purchase from Ezreal's shop. You'll need to get your hands on a bunch of chronotes should you wish to purchase anything around here though. For now, they are stocking a soil box, for free! I'd suggest picking one up as it will save you lots of space when out in the field.
  • Camera returns to normal.
  • (Continues below)

Directing to Ezreal[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Go and grab yourself a soil box from Ezreal and then come back to me.
  • A hint arrow to Ezreal is added.

Talking to Ezreal[edit | edit source]

  • Ezreal: Everything belongs in a museum! It also happens that contributing to Velucia's collections is a good way to earn chronotes, which you can spend in my shop! Want a look? We have a range of consumables and unlocks to assist your archaeological progress, whatever level of qualification you've achieved!
  • (Archaeology Guild Shop interface opens.)

Talking to Acting Guildmaster again[edit | edit source]

  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Excellent! You can upgrade your soil box capacity as you advance through qualifications. Now you have nearly everything you need to get out there and start excavating. The final thing is to give you this journal.
  • (Without space in backpack:)
    • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: Make some space in your backpack, and then come and talk to me.
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger hands you a journal
  • Acting Guildmaster Reiniger: All archaeologists should have a journal to make notes on their travels, but it also has some other handy features. Checking in on your overall progress and getting you back to the guild quickly are just a couple of things it can do. Feel free to stick it in your pocket whilst you're out and about, you never know when it might come in handy. And without further ado, I'm pleased to welcome you as a new intern to the Archaeology Guild. Please accept this certificate of qualification.
  • Talk to the guildmaster to collect your qualification reward.
  • Congratulations! you have completed: 'Qualification - Intern' - Complete the Archaeology tutorial.
  • Tutorial complete!
  • (Continues below)

Post-tutorial[edit | edit source]

  • Acting guildmaster Reiniger: Right, now that you're an official guild member, you should get out there and start excavating! We've got a team over at Kharid-et that could do with another pair of hands. I'll get someone to take you there now.
  • Player is teleported to Kharid-Et.
