This section or article is incomplete and could do with improvement.
Reason: Alichino might have dialogue if they're talked to without the cows in the inventory, which requires releasing them or sending them to one's bank remotely via pack yak or imp-in-a-box.
You can discuss this issue on the talk page or edit this page to improve it.

Walking past Ophiuchus[edit | edit source]

  • Gargoyle: Is it someone new?
  • Player: Who said that?
  • The player rushes forward.
  • Gargoyle: Is it someone new? This place is not for you. Have you come to play? For if you have, then you may stay.
  • Player: What? You're a talking statue! Wait, or are you a gargoyle?
  • Gargoyle: What else would I be? A guardian, perhaps? Maybe a watchdog, hmm? Most certainly a witness.
  • Player: I, er, I have a rock hammer... Don't make me-
  • Gargoyle: Bluff! I see much from my perch and I see through you. But worry not. The Malebranche and I no longer wish to see.
  • Player: The Malebranche?
  • Gargoyle: All of us gargoyles, we number thirteen. Our contract to watch, but yet not to be seen. We keep an eye on who comes and who goes, and witness the deeds that take place down below. And yet we grew tired of being bound to stone, as the centuries passed with us left alone. So, all we now wish for is to close our eyes, appease the thirteen and let each of us die.
  • Player: Let me see if I have this. You and twelve other gargoyles - the Malebranche - are guardians of this place. You wish to leave but you are trapped in stone? But if I appease each of you, then you can die and then what?
  • Gargoyle: We each crave something, to guess is the game. Bring this to us to remind us our names. Our names have the power to void our contract, and all it requires is for you to act.
  • Player: Where are the other members of the Malebranche?
  • Gargoyle: Picture this place as the face of a clock, seek out the hours and work our their lock. Through zodiac portals you shall meet the rest; upon them are coins that give hints to your quest.
  • Player: So there are zodiac portals - star signs - equally spaced around the rings here, and sat on each of them is a coin that tells me what to do? Once I've figured out how to appease each gargoyle, I'll be able to use these portals to visit them and remind them who they are? Final question. How can I appease you? How can I help you remember your name?
  • Long pause in dialogue, and the gargoyle turns.
  • Mystery Uncovered: 'Contract Claws'.
  • Gargoyle: You've given me hope that we thirteen can leave. You will free us all, this much I believe. Though I rest my eyes, I shall remain for a time, and end this palaver with a name, not a rhyme. I am Ophiuchus, thirteenth of the Malebranche...and I am freed.

    • Player: You're not eating my dog!
    • (Continues below)
  • Gargoyle: Fine, fine, my zodiac number is 0 - the first of the sequence. Why? Because it is, because I say, because it has always been - question it not. Question the others.

My, my, my, that beard looks delicious. I could just eat it all up for dinner. But it's fake, isn't it? So strange you come here and make no offering to Barbariccia, mock it instead... So be it! Take my zodiac number - it is 0 - then be on your way. Spare me temptation. Off to the goblin with you! To do so, you must BECOME THE GOBLIN!

-Barbariccia, 10th of the Malebranche

You are not a goblin. Show your true self or I will think you are my food... Ah, that is better. I am the only goblin here - Farfarello - though I could do with a bite to eat. Red or green, red or green? My favourite colour is blood red! Bah! Take my zodiac number - 2 - and go. You make me hungry. Go feed yourself to the dragon, yes? The dragon holds the twelfth number of the sequence. Could not be easier to find - take the DRAGON his BONES.

-Farfarello, 11th of the Malebranche

I am Draghignazzo, the Great Red Dragon! Feed me or fear me! Crunchy, tasty bones. It has been too long. An age, or two...or three? Ah, zodiac numbers - I remember mine, it is 4? Yes, that was it. Go with peace, I am sated. You may need to find the first of us still. A human's best friend will lead you astray, face-to-face with a nasty dog. Take a PET with you, but do not feed the dog! Hahaha! Astray? A stray? Beware the DOG!

-Draghignazzo, 12th of the Malebranche
