[edit] Words of the Ancient Ones

Stormreaver's musings appear as a giant sword; Truthful One's teachings as a spear with a skull

Each Explorer is worth 2,025 XP, with a 14,679 Bonus for locating everything.

  • Find the Stormreaver's first musing
    • Once again I return to this land of never-ending war. Giants versus dragons, the landscape itself shaped by hatred. However, this time my purpose is just. I will protect giantkind from the enemy. The enemy I know to be the Truthful One.
  • Find the Stormreaver's second musing
    • After my rebirth and days of madness, I took refuge in Siber Atoll. I was a guest of the Argonessen. More like a caged bird, in truth, but I did not mind. Much had taken place. I had much to think upon.
  • Find the Stormreaver's third musing
    • For too long has The Truthful One plagued giantkind. The blood of generations stains this ground. Ending this conflict begins with his death.
  • Find the Stormreaver's fourth musing
    • The Truthful One once brought me back to life, clouded my mind, and compelled me to destroy. Now, my mind is clear, and I know who the enemy is.
  • Find the Stormreaver's fifth musing
    • Giant brothers, hear me. This is our final war with The Thruthful One. One of us will fall. Let us fight hard, and make sure that giantkind wins this day.
  • Find the Stormreaver's sixth musing
    • All this in-fighting, giant against giant, clan against clan. What happened to the proud race I once knew? We have lived through enough insanity, no need to cause more amongst ourselves.
  • Find the Stormreaver's seventh musing
    • I am here once again to meet my destiny. The first time, it was the Quori. The second, my own madness. This time, it is to kill The Truthful One.
  • Find the Stormreaver's eighth musing
    • Among these ruins I saw a giant and a dragon, frozen in time. We too are frozen, locked in conflict, generation after generation. I hear much about a Prophecy, yet this bloodshed is caused by hatred, not some eternally-written message to us all.
  • Find the Stormreaver's ninth musing
    • I will strike The Truthful One down with his own deceit! He created this stag for dragon and giantkind to do battle, and used our longstanding conflict to fuel yet another attempt at domination. I must drag the puppet master out of hiding, and cut the strings that bind us once and for all.
  • Find the Stormreaver's tenth musing
    • Throughout my life, I have visited this land to fight, kill, wander, think. I love these hills, these mountains, and these fields. They have become a part of me.
  • Find the Stormreaver's 11th musing
    • We both should have died to defeat the Quori, so many years ago. The Truthful One failed again us inhis greed for life, and failed again when he brought me back, drenched in madness, to do evil. When he dies, it will be at my hand, staring at him with eyes that would be devoid of life, were it not for his own actions.
  • Find the Stormreaver's 12th musing
    • I must never again let the Truthful One's thoughts worm into my mind. Once, under his spell, I built a device that would have wrought a second cataclysm on Xen'drik. It is harmless now, but I leave it undestroyed. It contains mysteries I do not understand.
  • Find the Stormreaver's 13th musing
    • The Truthful One is leading these attacks, but like a coward, he fails to show up on the field of battle. Perhaps I may have to force his hand!
  • Find the Stormreaver's 14th musing
    • The time for wandering this land is over. Now the time for action begins. I must head to the Tor, and prepare for my final act as a warrior.
  • Find the Truthful One's first teaching
    • The giants never deserved the sacrifice I made for them. Not now, not ever!
  • Find the Truthful One's second teaching
    • There's little I regret, but heeding the pathetic story of entering the war against the Quori is one of my greatest blunders. He nearly had me sacrifice my life. A dragon dying to save giants would be shameful. Their screams as we crush them will be their payment for my error.
  • Find the Truthful One's third teaching
    • The Stormreaver and I sacrificed ourselves to cast the spell that defeated the Quori, all those years ago. They called it Reaver's Bane, but blamed ME for it's failure. Claiming that I didn't sacrifice enough. I contest that claim! It's not my fault the giants were too weak to dominate the land they ruled. Those with power must support it with mind and might. The giants had little of either, and failed.
  • Find the Truthful One's fourth teaching
    • These pitiful creatures wonder why Velah had to die in the Vault of Night. The answer to such a simple question is easy: She died because I wished it to happen. The world was not ready for the prophecy she sought to reveal, those words must remain secret for now. Anything that denies me victory must be treated as the enemy.
  • Find the Truthful One's fifth teaching
    • I delight in watching my dragons use the giants for sport. The giants call it battle, but how can such an easy victory be considered an actual conflict? We dragons call it having a bit of fun with our food.
  • Find the Truthful One's sixth teaching
    • The Stormreaver is once again serving as my incontrovertible puppet. He does my bidding and furthers my plans despite his complete ignorance that he does so. It will be amusing to see the look of horror on his face when he discovers that he is my unwitting ally!
  • Find the Truthful One's seventh teaching
    • I will not be denied the joy of seeing all giantkind laid to waste. My plan is too brilliant. These simpletons are unable to see their own destruction coming for them. Watching their downfall will be a moment I will savor for all eternity.
  • Find the Truthful One's eighth teaching
    • My dragons are serving me well. Their power cannot be contained by giantkind, or even the supine and uncertain chamber of Argonessen. I look forward to seeing them serving me again in un-death. Nothing says power like power reborn.
  • Find the Truthful One's ninth teaching
    • Argonnessen and their slavish attention to prophesy. Their study turns to (flounder?), because they fail to understand what they see! They need a better guide. And who better than me to serve that role?
  • Find the Truthful One's tenth teaching
    • Throughout my life, I have visited this land to fight, kill, wander, think. I love these hills, these mountains, and these fields. They have become a part of me.
  • Find the Truthful One's 11th teaching
    • Have the giants always been this stupid, clumsy, and weak? It seems like they've gotten even weaker over the years. They walk into my trap so easily. I'd almost prefer a little more... sport... as I watch their kind crumble.
  • Find the Truthful One's 12th teaching
    • I knew the Stormreaver would be unable to sit idly by while his kind gathered into my trap. When they die together, it'll be a trully exquisite moment!
  • Find the Truthful One's 13th teaching
    • Seeing my last plan fall apart during its final moments was an unfortunate experience. I so look forward to seeing the Reaver's Bane used to lay the land bare! But I will not be denied the pleasure of watching giantkind die this time.
  • Find the Truthful One's 14th teaching
    • Unlike the sinuous and tentative nature of prophecy, I KNOW what the future holds. Dragons will kill giant after giant, thinning the herd until I activate the Doomsday Device, while a shocked Stormreaver watches and sees his role in his race's undoing! It will be an excellent end to a long war.
  • Find the Truthful One's 15th teaching
    • It was unfortunate to lose my body all those years ago, but I do enjoy some aspects of being undead. To be able to think free of the worry of mortality is a freeing experience!
