Talking to Naressa[edit | edit source]

  • (First time:)
    • Naressa: Stay back!
    • Player: Nice... dragonkin...
    • Naressa: Don't act innocent. I've seen what you and your people out there have been doing to my kind.
    • Player: I'm not here to kill you. Unless you want to kill me, that is.
    • Naressa: No, I have no interest in that. Who are you, and why are you here?
    • Player: I'm Player! I was just wandering about, exploring this place, and just happened to spot you.
    • Naressa: Alright, Player. I'm Naressa. But I'm still keeping my eye on you.
    • (Continues below.)
  • (Subsequent times:)
    • Naressa: Hello, Player. I'm pleased you came out to visit me again.
    • (Continues below.)
    • What are you doing out here?
      • Player: What are you doing all the way out here? Why aren't you trying to kill me?
      • Naressa: Those are some good questions. I ran here from the battlefield. Something menacing is going on down there, but I managed to break free. There wasn't really anywhere else to go - those creatures in the Cathedral would attack me on sight.
      • Player: Something menacing? What do you mean?
      • Naressa: It's... hard to explain. Up until recently, I felt like I was living in a dream. Yet, every so often, there would be brief moments of lucidity. I insisted on chasing those moments, trying to make sense of what I was feeling, until eventually the blurriness just ceased.
      • Player: Huh. I wonder if that could have anything to do with your hibernation pods?
      • Naressa: You know about those? Regardless, yes, that was my theory too. We had many shared dreams while we slept. I can't really recall any of them, except one. It was as if we had been awoken, under attack by the Roakin once again. And so we defended ourselves. Everything became clear to me once my senses came back under my control. Which is fine for me, but I don't know what I can do to help my kin down there.
      • Player: Neither do I. At this point I'm afraid they may only be able to help themselves. However, I do know that Kerapac is involved here, presenting himself as the leader of your army.
      • Naressa: Kerapac? That menacing little... Before our hibernation, he was always messing about with his little science experiments. Intelligent, creative, and driven, but unscrupulous. It was inevitable he'd go too far one day. Many of us Nodon knew he was untrustworthy.
      • Player: Yep, that's pretty much been my experience with him too.
      • Naressa: Well, he's nothing if not consistent, I guess.
      • (Shows the initial options.)
    • Tell me about yourself.
      • Player: Can you tell me anything about yourself?
      • Naressa: Hmm... What exactly would you like to know?
        • Do you have any hobbies?
          • Player: Do you have any hobbies?
          • Naressa: Hobbies? No, not really. I devoted my life to my work, engrossing myself in all things architecture. If I wasn't training, I was studying, and if I wasn't studying, I was building.
          • Player: Well I must say, it clearly paid off! You guys really did a good job of building up Orthen.
          • Naressa: Ah, you're familiar with our work?
          • Player: Yes, I visited what remains of Orthen on an island to the north-east! Quite a lovely holiday destination, and stunning structures all over.
          • Naressa: *sigh* Reduced to rubble and ruins. All of our hard work, gone in the blink of an eye. Nonetheless, it pleases me to hear this. I shall have to revisit one day.
          • (Shows the previous options.)
        • Do you have any family?
          • Player: Do you have any family?
          • Naressa: Generally, my creed - the Nodon - were tight-knit enough to count as both my family and my friends. I mingled with a few Aughra here and there, but not so much the others.
          • (Shows the previous options.)
        • What was life like for you back on Orthen?
          • Player: What was life like for you back on Orthen?
          • Naressa: Relaxing. I got to spend my days doing what I loved, creating beautiful buildings, and chiselling away at statues. Easy to say now, but I do wish I cherished those days more in the moment.
          • (Shows the previous options.)
        • Go back.
          • (Shows the initial options.)
    • How are you doing?
      • Player: How are you doing?
      • Naressa: Could be better, could be worse. Right now, I'm just taking things day by day. On one hand, I'm not dead. And I managed to escape the clutches of the Roakin, unlike my brothers and sisters out there. On the other hand, I'm currently in hiding, and the only one of my kind left lucid, so our hibernation was all for nothing. All those years wasted. Woken up years later to no pain, yet the control over us still persists.
      • Player: Pain?
      • Naressa: Yes, pain. From that horrid stone.
      • Player: The Stone of Jas?
      • Naressa: Of course, what other pain-causing stone would I be on about?
      • Player: Sorry, so much has happened since then that it's just old news at this point, you know?
      • Naressa: ...
      • Player: I suppose I can get you caught up a bit on recent events...
      • You start to tell Naressa all about your journeys over Gielinor in excruciating detail.
      • You tell her about the good times, the bad times, and the inbetween times, ensuring not to leave even the most minute detail out.
      • Naressa begins to yawn, so you hurry up and cut to the chase.
      • Player: ...And that's how Kerapac saved you all by destroying the stone!
      • Naressa: Really? Kerapac? You're not pulling my tail?
      • Player: Yes. He destroyed it using another Elder Artefact, the Mirror. It was all very dramatic.
      • Naressa: ...
      • Naressa: That makes one good thing that dastardly Dactyl has done for our race. Thank you for informing me, Player.
      • (Shows the initial options.)
    • Is there anything you can tell me about the Nodon?
      • Player: Is there any information you can tell me about the Nodon?
      • Naressa: We may not be trying to kill each other, Player, but that doesn't mean I'm thrilled about the prospect of you killing my kin. Well, more like attempting to kill.
      • Player: Hey, I'm strong! And powerful! I'm the World Guardian, I'll have you know.
      • Naressa: Yes, yes, I'm sure you are. Anyway, to get back to my original point. I entrust you won't use this information to benefit you at their expense.
      • Player: Of course not. I promise.
      • Naressa: We're not really fighters. As you might be aware, we specialise in construction, design, and building claws-on. When the war against the Roakin started brewing, we fled into hiding rather than fight head-on. *sigh* Of course, you wouldn't be able to guess that looking at how we are today. If you look closely, you can tell that those siege engines aren't even made by us. They are far too fragile, and easy to tamper with. You can find parts of them falling out all over the place! Truly awful work, clearly invented by an amateur.
      • Player: Interesting...
      • (Shows the initial options.)
    • Leave.
      • Player: Farewell.
      • Naressa: It's been nice chatting to a friendly face, Player. I hope to run into you again sometime.

Using items on Naressa[edit | edit source]

Naressa's journal[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Does this belong to you? I found it on the battlefield.
  • Naressa: Ah, so it does! In my haste I must have dropped it. Thank you for returning it to me.
  • Player: I hope you don't mind, but I had a bit of a nosey through it.
  • Naressa: *sigh* You adventurers, thinking you can just go around reading everyone and anyone's private journals.

Meditation pipe[edit | edit source]

  • Naressa: Skethzzzzz. Be careful with that!

Dragonkin bones[edit | edit source]

  • Naressa: You're sick!

Siege engine parts[edit | edit source]

  • Naressa: These are used by my kind to fix up our siege machinery, but clearly I have no use for them anymore. Maybe you can find a purpose for them.

Lucky dragonkin coin[edit | edit source]

  • Naressa: Hey, my lucky coin! Thank you for returning it to me. It really means a lot, you see. My grandmother passed it down to me and-
  • Player: AGH! NO!
  • Player: Um, I just mean, this one is mine, sorry.
  • Naressa: Oh. I guess I'll just have to find a new one, then.
