Story Dialogue
Read Riordan's First Letter and report to Gwynn.

(You have broken the wax seal
and opened the letter.)

Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

I have seen proof that the yeti exist.
I admit that you, <Vella>, are responsible.

You have our gratitude, but gratitude alone does
not guarentee [sic] admission to the Royal Academy.

You have, if anything, taken the first step towards
proving your skill and worth to us.

The Royal Army has very strict standards for
admission and service.

If you truly wish to join our ranks,
you must pass two tests.

For the first, you must defeat the gnoll chieftain.
For the second, you must defeat the yeti chieftain.

Any member of the Royal Army would find
these tasks no challenge.

Until you can rise to such a level of strength,
you cannot hope to enter to Royal Academy.

until such tasks are trivial. [sic]


(The letter ends.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Are you here to report?


(You report what you read in the letter
to Gwynn.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

I knew you'd accept the mission, but I can't
believe what you have been tasked with.

Regardless, if you have made your decision,
I trust that you will suceed, <Vella>.

Find the Golden Scale Piece in Battle Quest Gnoll King, Ruler of the Ruins and bring it to Gwynn.

Too hard?

This can't break your will...can it?

You've passed one of the two tests.
Well done.

If you can bring me proof of the second test,
I'll send confirmation for you.

You've come too far to back down now.
Bring me proof.

Find the Rockjaw Fang in Battle Quest Yeti King and bring it to Gwynn.

Is it done?

Is this it?

Excellent work!
I'll send word of your success to Riordan.

I'll contact you when I receive a reply,
so get some rest or something.

Talk to the people next to the Mercenary Outpost. [Talk to Ceara.]
Ceara (NPC Icon).png Ceara

So I hear you defeated the king of the yetis.
That's incredible.

Most of us try to avoid an encounter like that,
but you, <Vella>... You really are amazing.

Gallagher (NPC Icon).png Gallagher

Amazing? Ha! That's funny.
The way I see it, it was sheer luck.

Besides, you're not in the Academy yet.
you better hope they're not as sharp as me.

Ceara (NPC Icon).png Ceara

Are you jealous?
Why can't you be more supportive?

That's awful. You're awful.
Right, Marrec?

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

....

Ceara (NPC Icon).png Ceara

Hey, what's with the silence?
Why aren't you answering me?

You don't agree with Gallagher,
do you, Marrec?

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

....

Ceara (NPC Icon).png Ceara

Marrec?

Gallagher (NPC Icon).png Gallagher

Ugh, shut it already.
I don't want to hear it.

Anyway, rookie...

We'll see whether make it in or not, [sic]
but if you ever go to Rocheste...


(Gallagher lowers his voice.)

Gallagher (NPC Icon).png Gallagher

Let's you and me be business partners huh?
Ice Strawberry Brandy is expensive there.

We can make some real money if we
buy it cheap here and sell it there.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Still wasting time, I see.

Gallagher (NPC Icon).png Gallagher

Soldier, huh?

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

I expected to hear more constructive discussion,
not meaningless chatter.

I should have had you train if you were
going to waste time like this.


(Gwynn hands you a sealed letter.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

This letter has arrived for you.
Read it, and find out what your next task is.
