Our initial results showed nothing odd about the creatures on this island, but our latest samples show another energy signature.
Stubborn? He called me stubborn? Was he looking in a mirror when he said it? Hmph.
Well, I'll make some allowances since his brother's missing...or worse. What do you have for me?
Let me see.
This magic isn't spiritual or arcane. There's almost something malevolent about it. I sense something in the west.
Let me see...The Shrine of Yurian. I can feel it flowing from there. It's dark and malevolent energy.
I hope it helps the poor, stubborn, emotionally bedridden fool.
What did Eria say?
Hmmm... So that's it. The Shrine of Yurian, eh? Was that all she said?
Interesting, a dark energy, eh?
Our scouts are watching an orcan force to the south, but it's inconceivable that they're responsible for this.
We must investigate the Shrine of Yurian. We'll meet up at the shrine itself.
Don't let any orcans follow us up, however. We're there to study, not fight.
Hmmm. This sword is very familiar, but the energy it radiates is not at all correct.
Time is of the essence, <player name>. Do not tarry.
This sword is?
Oh, no! This is Elleon's blade - Demonbane!
You found it up at the shrine? But how did such dark energy get infused into the blade? I don't understand.
Worse still, Elleon loved this sword. There's no way he'd part with it or leave it behind. I fear for Leander's tender heart.
Let's hope [Elleon is not dead]! Nature forbid!
No, all I can say for sure is this blade is infused with dark, demonic energy. Very powerful. This isn't good, <player name>. Not at all.
