Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Where did Zaros go?
    • The Keeper: Your predecessor has damaged the oubliette and released Raksha.
      • Player: My predecessor?
        • The Keeper: The purple deity. He told me of your coming. He told me of your strange new species. He told me you can survive in this environment. You must enter the inner chamber and stop Raksha.

          • I'll get right on that.
          • Wait, who are you?
            • The Keeper: I am the Keeper, the caretaker of the oubliette. I maintain the apparatus that sustains and imprisons Raksha, the prisoner of this place. I have maintained this vigil for many centuries, and the seals have never been broken until now. Do you need anything else?

                • Ask about the creature.
                  • The Keeper: What about the creature?

                      • What is it?
                        • Player: What is it?
                          • The Keeper: We call it Raksha. The One That Speaks.
                            • Player: But what is it? Zaros called it a 'shadow colossus'.
                              • The Keeper: I do not know this term. Raksha is a unique being. There were other dinosaurs, some truly titanic beings, but nothing like this. Kerapac experimented on it. It had strange powers, which he cut from its strange flesh, but he could not remove its fundamental aspect. Magic of a kind we had never seen before courses throughout its body. It must be fed with that energy to remain alive - it does not generate it.
                      • How was it captured?
                        • Player: How was it captured?
                          • The Keeper: We hunted it for weeks across the mainland. When we cornered it, it poisoned me. Transporting it here was a complex matter but the Kindra demanded it. I am proud to say that there were no other fatalities.
                      • Why did it stir now?
                        • Player: Why did it stir now?
                          • The Keeper: Kerapac somehow created a source of the energy it needs to survive. After the curse, the supply of energy ceased. We remained awake, the beast and I, for many more years, but eventually Raksha slipped into a coma, and I slumbered with it. I do not know how long it has been since then. Recently the supply resumed once more, drawing both of us into wakefulness, until it once more ceased. Raksha would have slept once more if not for the purple deity's interference.
                • Ask about this place.
                  • The Keeper: What about this place?
                    • Select An Option
                      • What is this place?
                        • Player: What is this place?
                          • The Keeper: We are in the antechamber of the oubliette. The oubliette was designed and built solely to contain Raksha. Apparatus channels energy here to sustain the creature. I was embedded here as its keeper, overseeing it.
                      • What experiments were done here?
                        • Player: What experiments were done here?
                          • The Keeper: It is not my place to understand the details. Syrtes, Aughra and Dactyl alike visited this place for their work. When agitated, Raksha broadcasts hateful visions. I remember one priest, Kranon, was quite touched by the experience. He claimed that it had religious significance to him, though I cannot imagine what. I wonder what became of him.
                            • Player: He met a bad end.
                              • The Keeper: Unsurprising.
                • Ask about ancient history.
                  • The Keeper: Ask what you must.
                    • Select An Option.
                      • Do you know anything about the 'Codex' Zaros mentioned?
                        • Player: Do you know anything about the 'Codex' Zaros mentioned?
                          • The Keeper: I do not. He showed me the same visions he showed you. We never learned the source of Raksha's powers. Perhaps this Codex is linked to the same powers.
                            • Player: I know where it is.
                              • The Keeper: Really?
                                • Player: We built the Archaeology Guild around it.
                                  • The Keeper: That seems unwise.
                      • Can you tell me anything about your people?
                        • Player: Can you tell me anything about your people?
                          • The Keeper: My people ruled this world, until the curse befell us. I was interred here long beforehand, but I still felt it. After that moment there was no interest in the oubliette or its prisoner. I have had no visitors. Now the curse is gone, but my own vigil remains. The purple deity told me that my civilisation is long gone.
                            • Player: Does that trouble you?
                              • The Keeper: ...[sic]
                              • The Keeper: It makes no difference to me as long as Raksha remains contained.
                      • Can you tell me anything about the city of Orthen?
                        • Player: Can you tell me anything about the city of Orthen?
                          • The Keeper: This is our first city on this world. There were other colonies but this was the capital.
                            • Player: There are archaeologists outside studying the ruins. They would be fascinated to talk to you.
                              • The Keeper: Are they like you? Are they able to survive in here?
                                • Player: No. Only I can do that. I'm kind of a special case.
                                  • The Keeper: Unfortunate.
                      • What was your world like?
                        • Player: What was your world like?
                          • The Keeper: You have seen it yourself, have you not?
                            • Player: Well, this island is experiencing a... um... let's say time, uh, issue. It's covered in jungle, but the rest of the world isn't. What did the mainland look like in your time?
                              • The Keeper: It was much like this island. Volcanoes, ferns, dinosaurs. A young and vibrant world, the air sweet and clean.
                • Ask about someone.
                  • The Keeper: Who do you want to know about?
                    • Select An Option
                      • What did Zaros tell you?
                        • Player: What did Zaros tell you?
                          • The Keeper: Who?
                            • Player: The, uh, purple deity.
                              • The Keeper: He told me that I have been ripped from time. He told me many thousands of years have passed, but I have stood still. He told me the world is now under the control of lesser beings.
                                • Player: Do you know what he wanted?
                                  • The Keeper: He has removed part of the apparatus of the oubliette. I instructed him not to but I could do nothing against a being of such potency. He seemed confident that you specifically would deal with the aftereffects.
                      • What can you tell me about yourself?
                        • Player: What can you tell me about yourself?
                          • The Keeper: Once I was a hunter. It was I who captured Raksha and brought him here. I was poisoned, but by Kerapac's machinations I was interred here. The same apparatus that sustains Raksha sustains me. We are linked, forever.
