Objectives[edit | edit source]

Objectives and journal entries may vary pending player decisions and outcomes.

Recruit allies in the fight against the cult
  • Freeing ourselves of the parasite is proving more difficult than we imagined. We should be on the lookout for powerful allies - we'll likely need them in the fight to come.
  • Volo has become a most loyal ally. His powerful words of encouragement are sure to be at our backs in the trials to come.
  • Auntie Ethel is grateful for us letting her keep the child. We can rely on her help in the trials ahead.
  • Halsin is grateful for our help protecting the sanctity of life. We can count on his formidable druidic powers, should the need arise.
  • Yurgir, pleased to be free of his contract, will lend us the hellish might of an orthon in the trials to come.
  • Mizora is sure to seek revenge for her abduction to Moonrise Towers. When the time comes to face the Absolute, we'll find her on our side.
  • Isobel is grateful that, thanks to us, her beloved is safe. We are sure to have the light of Selûne guiding us in the darkness to come.
  • Dame Aylin, the fearsome aasimar, is now our sworn ally. She'll have our backs in any fight - no matter the enemy.

  • Rolan is grateful for our help securing his position in Ramazith's Tower. We can rely on the tower's full power, should we ever need it.
