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

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

Your success is unexpected.
Truly, not just anyone could do as you have.

I suppose Gwynn saw something in you
when she gave her recommendation.

But I cannot fully acknowledge your potential
just yet. Even you must admit your good fortune.

Luck is not enough to carry a soldier.
You must have the skill and spirit to stand on your own.

If you still with to join the Royal Academy,
craft a Cadet Ring, and bring it to me.

With this gesture of persevereance, [sic]
I will consider your admission to the Royal Academy.


(The letter ends.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Make it quick.


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

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Cadet Ring?...


(Gwynn goes to the back and returns with something.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Good thing I am always prepared.
Here, take this.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

This is probably your first time
seeing this ore, <Hurk>.

This is a Renos Ore,
used exclusively in the royal kingdom.

It is often used in special armor or decorations.
A Cadet Ring must be crafted from this.

But, of course, there is more to making a
Cadet Ring than just that.

You received information on Battle: [[Discover battle::Proof of Courage|Proof of Courage]].
Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

You must go to a certain place to make the ring.
The materials there are a key part of the ring.

All cadets, even those officially admitted,
are ordered to bring the Cadet Ring.

Gathering the materials and fighting the monsters
in that place are part of the test.

If you have any questions, you can ask me,
but only you can prove your worth.

Go to Battle Quest Proof of Courage and craft the Cadet Ring upon your return. Then, show it to Gwynn.

Did you bring the Cadet Ring?

This ring is an essential symbol
for those entering the Academy.

The ring will be engraved with a unique name
when you first gain admission.

That allows the ring to serve as your
identification at all times.

The pattern engraved on this ring
also serves as a seal on letters.

I'll write you a letter.
Seal it with your ring, and take it to Rocheste.


(Gwynn sealed the letter with candle wax.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Here, press your ring here.


(Gwynn handed you the letter.
The wax is still warm and soft.)

You carefully press the seal with your ring.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Very good.

Reward: [[Story reward::Gwynn's Request|Gwynn's Request]]
Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Deliver this letter and return with the reply.
And don't expect to meet Riordan in person.

You will have many chances to meet him
once you officially become a cadet.

Deliver the Gwynn's Request to Guard at the entrance to Rocheste and receive a reply.
Guard (NPC Icon).png Guard (NPC)

What is it?


(You show him your Cadet Ring.)

Guard (NPC Icon).png Guard (NPC)

Ah, you're a cadet.
Sorry, I didn't notice.

I'm afraid I can't let you pass,
but I will deliver your letter for you.


(You gave the letter with your seal to the guard.)

This letter is for Riordan?
Got it. Please wait for a minute.


(The guard takes your letter inside.)

(Everything is quite serene here.)

(Warm sunlight and soft breeze
stream across your face.)

Guard (NPC Icon).png Guard (NPC)

Sorry I kept you waiting.
This was given as Riordan's reply.

I'll be happy to assist you again in the future.
Take care, cadet.
