Introductory Dialogue[ | ]

Dialogue with Henkoff
"The Shades who have forgotten their names that have lived here for a long time... I have heard of such. However, I only thought it was the stuff of legend.... It's said that beneath the Altar of the Blizzard, there is a devoted Shade that has kept watch over that place for a long time. It has discarded all hatred and bloody thirst and lost even its name while it awaits the time to return to eternity... Though I don't know for sure if such a thing truly exists, if you are interested, try going there. It should be osmewhere in the underground of the Altar of the Blizzard."

Intermediate Dialogue[ | ]

Dialogue with Shade
"You are a peculiar guest... How long has it been? Well.. Indeed, such things are meaningless now, are they not...? What brings you here...? I have been here since long ago, before the world was completely destroyed and returned to 'nothingness....' This is a place where noone is present and no sound is heard... The only existence is me..."
[I have something of which to consult with.]
"Well... the lord of the clan is very far from here... It is a place that even I cannot reach now... you may be able to meet the one in charge of this place, this altar... However, the road to that one will not be easy... Our clan, the beings who long for long life... There will not be many who can maintain reason in the face of one exuding the aura of life... As for me, I have already given up everything with the passing of much time... Go, you who have come from an unfamiliar place... I grow weary as it has been too long since I have met another existence.. I wish to rest...."
[Go find the master of the Altar of the...]
Dialogue with Shade
"Oh dear... my body does not obey me... You.... After you left, there were others hwo invaded this place... Did you fool me... Is that it...?"
[No. What happened?]
"It was a human wizard and a small human child.... Their strength was too powerful... They ruthlessly destroyed our Undead brethen... They broke a sacred altar wall, and it appears they have departed directly to the place where the master resides...... And... afterward, an old man appeared seeming to be in pursuit of them... However, he could not catch them before they left here... Ah... It seems my life force has also run dry... I did not lose my name.... What I lost is the strength of time... Now, due to humans, I am to lose my very existence... I have no regrets... As it was a long life of confinement......"

Completion Dialogue[ | ]

Dialogue with Henkoff
"So, there really was such a Shade? Quite surprising... A demon who doesn't harm humans and just observes the world... By the way, did you, by chance, see Kashu there? I see... Is it true that he really reappeared? Damn.... This is quite an exasperating office."
[Did you by chance see a child with a wizard?]
"A small child and a wizard... Let's see.. I don't recall seeing such a small child. Incidentally, as it's been rumored that Kashu has been long dead, it's hard to know how tihngs will turn out."
