Baron: Are you ready for a challenge?
Calder: So, Monsoona tells me she showed you how to make a compass. I have seen the build that you made with her instructions. It's quite impressive! However, I am most intrigued by the potion you used as the liquid inside. Now there is true power... I wish to meet the wizard who crafted that brew. I should like to show them the water from my temple.
Ruler: Well, I can't help you with that, but I can introduce you to the witch behind the brew.
Calder: Your realm is very pleasant, child ruler, I must say. I can see why Monsoona has enjoyed spending time with you here.
Monsoona: Hush, Calder. The things we speak of are not for mortal ears.
Ruler: You are both welcome to stay here as long as you like.
Calder: Very kind of you, child ruler. This certainly would make a good place to visit. However, I think we both wish to prioritize finding the source of the darkness.
Monsoona: My brother may be rude, but he is right.
Ivy: I looked at the water sample you gathered from the temple and you are right... There is a trace of darkness inside it. It seems like the toxins have tried to infiltrate your temple.
Calder: Now that you have alerted us, we'll have no difficulty banishing the darkness, but the real question is, how did it sneak up on us like this?
Monsoona: And if it was able to sneak up on *us* like this with no warning... perhaps we need to check on our sister.
Monsoona: Our sister can be... temperamental. Even more so than Calder.
Calder: I take offense to that, Monsoona. I am a delight.
Ruler: You both have been very kind to us... why would your sister be anything else?
Calder: She is our older sister... our much, much, *much* older sister. She controls the very earth underneath us. She is responsible for many flowers that bloom and the trees that grow.
Monsoona: She is often at rest too... I can only imagine how draining her time has been.
Ruler: If the darkness spread to the earth, that could explain what we've seen here.
Monsoona: With how often she is asleep, the darkness cold have no issue claiming her. That could also explain how the dark spirits had that map...
Calder: Perhaps it is worth it to investigate this realm first? We have cleansed our temples of the darkness they were fraught with. Perhaps that was enough to rid the world of the toxins.
Monsoona: Good idea. No sense in waking Tierrabella unless it's absolutely necessary...
Ruler: What is your sister like, Monsoona? Is she like you and Calder?
Monsoona: Well, we come from the same family and se we are similar... but Tierrabella has been around for much longer than I or my brother, and she is certainly more powerful than my brother or I combined. I didn't suspect she would have any issues fending off the darkness... but with what we've seen, that was clearly an oversight on my part. Despite how things seem, I am rather worried about how she is doing.
Ruler: Don't worry, Monsoona. My knights and I will travel and help your sister. We've fought this darkness off since the beginning, we can help your sister if the darkness has gotten to her as well.
Monsoona: You are incredibly brave, child ruler. There is perhaps something very special about you as well.
Ruler: If your sister is temperamental, should we be cautious when approaching her?
Calder: It would be good to treat lightly, child ruler. The darkness ay not have even reached her yet, and she will not take kindly to unfamiliar mortals greeting her without warning. With how draining her work is, she doesn't like being awoken, that is for certain.
Ruler: Might there be something we can do to help your sister at ease? We have many resources in our realm. If there would be something we could take with us, to show her we mean well.
Calder: There is one thing that is sure to make Tierrabella feel better.
Calder: Good luck on your journey, child ruler. You're going to need it.
Monsoona: Calder, hush! They're going to be just fine.
Ruler: Would you wish to join us on this journey? Perhaps your sister would be more at ease with you awakening her.
Calder: Ha! If Tierrabella sees Monsoona when she first wakes up, it would be a disaster.
Monsoona: Though I hat to admit it, Calder is right. She will certainly wish to see us when she's fully awake, but for now, it is best you journey on your own.
Thurston: There it is, my liege! Look at that!
Ruler: This is an incredible sight... I don't think I've seen anything as old as this temple.
Thurston: As you feared, my liege, the darkness is here and surrounds this place.
Ruler: It is good that we are here to help. Hopefully the earth spirit here won't be too mad with us waking her...
Thurston: The darkness has already claimed thi stemple, my liege.
Ruler: This is why we have seen the toxins around our realm... It wasn't just our realm that was ill... the earth itself was sick. We thought the darkness was spreading to the earth temple, I hope the earth spirit inside is all right. There's only one way for us to find out!
Earth Spirit: You saved me... but you are just a child?
Ruler: We come from the Glimmerwoods... the darkness was in our land as well. We were sent by your siblings, Monsoona and Calder. We followed clues left behind by the toxins and it led us to them. They feared that the darkness had encroached on your temple as well.
Earth Spirit: Interesting... I am glad my siblings had your help. My name is Tierrabella, and this is the Sublunaral Temple. It is my home. The darkness had claimed it and had trapped me in slumber. By the time I realized what was happening, it was too late. The last think I remember was the darkness closing in upon me... but I can tell you were meant to be the one to free me from this curse.
Ruler: How can you tell?
Tierrabella: Oh child, there is much beyond your yound eyes that I can see.
Goal: An Elemental Mystery
Monsoona: Teirrabella, I'm so glad you're alright!
Tierrabella: I've missed you all... yes, even you, Calder.
Calder: The feeling is mutual, sister. I am glad we are reunited.
Tierrabella: It is all thanks to this kind child... but *who* exactly are you?
Ruler: Me? I'm just... well, I'm just the ruler of this realm.
Tierrabella: You're not just anything, child. There is something truly special about you, I can tell. Darkness and its cohorts cower at the sight of you.
Ruler: I wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of my friends, truly.
Tierrabella: Well for you and your friends, there are wondrous adventures that await. Should you ever need anything, our temples are at your service.
