[BA_01] BaranNoStoneEncounterOne
You reek of antipathy. Whatever you are, stay far from my sanctuary.
[BA_02] BaranNoStoneEncounterTwo
Oh yes... I understand your darkness now. Sin has sent his lackey to defile the devout.
[BA_03] BaranNoStoneEncounterThree
I will not allow Sin to overtake purity.
[BA_04] BaranNoStoneFleeing
No minion of Sin could be this powerful... what are you?
[BA_05] BaranOneStoneEncounterOne
I see now. You are a test sent to me by God as I reach the threshold of worthiness.
[BA_06] BaranOneStoneEncounterTwo
Draw closer. Bring the holy fires. I shall not burn.
[BA_07] BaranOneStoneEncounterThree
To prove oneself to God is the ultimate trial.
[BA_08] BaranOneStoneFleeing
... yours is no righteous strength. Deceiver! You are no servant of Innocence!
[BA_09] BaranTwoStoneEncounterOne
Ah, my fellow forsaken soul. You, too, found the void lonely. You seek my wisdom.
[BA_10] BaranTwoStoneEncounterTwo
Good and evil have abandoned us. From whence does morality spring in the absence of God?
[BA_11] BaranTwoStoneEncounterThree
In this blasted land unseen by the divine, we must make our own truths. I shall show you the light.
[BA_12] BaranTwoStoneFleeing
You reject... my wisdom...? Blasphemer...
[BA_13] BaranThreeStoneEncounterOne
Yet again, the void in your soul draws you back to my domain.
[BA_14] BaranThreeStoneEncounterTwo
Intrude upon my citadel. I promise you a revelation.
[BA_15] BaranThreeStoneEncounterThree
You seek the light, and you have found it. I am become God, Creator and Shaper of Worlds.
[BA_16] BaranThreeStoneFleeing
I see now... what you are... even God has his opposite...
[BA_17] BaranFourStoneEncounter1a
The Creator and the Destroyer meet once more, and in that eternal struggle, the world is forged.
[BA_18] BaranFourStoneEncounter1b
My soul is free of doubt, for I cast it aside, and it became you.
[BA_19] BaranFourStoneEncounter1c
You are drawn to me like a moth to a flame, for you cannot exist without me.
[BA_20] BaranFourStoneFightc
You seek Forgiveness, but you do not deserve it.
[BA_21] BaranFourStoneEncounter3b
I seek to create a land of pure righteousness. What do you seek, except to destroy?
[BA_22] BaranFourStoneEncounter2a
Like Sin and Innocence before us, we two are bound forever; God and his shadow.
[BA_23] BaranFourStoneEncounter2b
You mean to torment me, but you are the weakness I once had. I reject you.
[BA_24] BaranFourStoneEncounter2c
The Fire of Creation burns within me, and it will reshape you into something worthy. Only then will you be Forgiven.
[BA_25] BaranFourStoneEncounter3a
Here, whole worlds come into existence at my whim. What hope can you possibly have?
[BA_26] BaranFourStoneFighta
Shadow can never overtake light, demon.
[BA_27] BaranFourStoneFightd
I am the Fire of Creation, and I shall purify your soul.
[BA_28] BaranFourStoneFightb
How dare you question God?!
[BA_29] BaranFourStoneFighte
I shall cast you into a pit of infinite tortures.
[BA_30] BaranFourStoneStoryDeathTalk
Kirac... sent you? You must keep him out of the Atlas... I cannot be saved... he will find only his own doom, endlessly pursuing my rescue... he will end up... like me...

Tell Zana... she was right... to seal us away... Sirus must never... be...
[BA_31] BaranFourStoneDeatha
Tell Zana... ... ...demons...
[BA_32] BaranFourStoneDeathb
... tell my brother... that I cannot be saved...
[BA_33] BaranFourStoneDeathc
Keep Kirac... out of the Atlas... at all costs...
[BA_34] BaranFourStoneDeathd
A brief moment of sanity... it never lasts...
[BA_35] BaranFourStoneWina
In death, you are Forgiven.
[BA_36] BaranFourStoneWinb
You were nothing before God.
[BA_37] BaranFourStoneWinc
You were a fool to challenge me, mortal child.
[BA_41] BaranResponseToSirus0
The lamb has woken the lion, and damned us all.
[BA_42] BaranResponseToSirus2
You've awoken the slumbering giant, Exile.
[BA_43] BaranResponseToSirus3
Even God fears the wrath of Sirus.
[BA_44] BaranResponseToSirus4
There are some beyond even God's judgement.
[BA_45] BaranResponseToSirus5
If Sirus casts his eyes upon you, not even your soul shall remain.
[BA_46] BaranResponseToSirus6
Seek God's Forgiveness before Sirus seeks your head.
[BA_47] BaranResponseToSirus7
And with his burning gaze, God swept clean the Land of Sin.
[BA_48] BaranGlyph1
I, Baran, son of Galhad, being of full age and sound mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this to be my Last Will and Testament. We shall soon meet a cosmic abomination in battle in a place truly outside of all that is Good and Meaningful. Our chance of success, even by God's grace, is slim.

To my good friends and allies, Veritania, Sirus, Drox, and Al-Hezmin, I bequeath to you my staff and platemail. May you use it to seal the great evil that haunts these lands.

To my brothers and sisters of the Templar faith in Exile, Herules, Gomin, Cassia, and Landren, I bequeath to you my home in Oriath, that you might never be without one again.


Baran, son of Galhad
[BA_49] BaranGlyph2
My dearest Landren,

It seems we may never leave this strange place. Our guide claims the device we used to come here has been broken and cannot be fixed, and that it would take a miracle for a path home to open. Unfortunately, we know the value of miracles.

I can only hope that perhaps some intrepid explorers will discover this place and see to it that this letter finds you, though that could be a thousand years from now.

How I wish I could have spent but a few more moments with you, and felt your hand in mine just one more time. Fate has seen to it, that like our days in the Courts, duty must come before desire.

Know that I did it all so that you might be safe.

I hope you find happiness.

Yours eternally,

[BA_50] BaranGlyph3
To the discoverer of this letter,

What transpired here in this strange and twisted realm is beyond comprehension. An evil older than time itself roamed these lands feeding on the memories of Valdo Caeserius, a son of Oriath.

Alas, the fiend that fed upon him was powerful beyond measure, and unerring in its desire to spread what we discovered was known as the 'Decay.' I know not how long we pursued the demon. Long enough that my allies began to show signs of madness. We'd surely have fallen to the evil were it not for Sirus' courageous leadership... and his sacrifice.

We could find no way to slay the demon, though we tried countless times. It was the daughter of Valdo who found a way to seal it, though it cost poor Zana her father, rest his soul. Our gambit would have failed were it not for Sirus. The demon would not give in, clawing its way from Zana's device. Sirus... He leapt onto it. We saw the demon tap into his body, at last relinquishing its grip. Sirus and the demon spiraled into the trap and out of our reality. Both gone.

Then Sirus was there once more. None of us witnessed his return. His eyes did not move, he did not blink, and his mutterings... Mad and unceasing. Then his face contorted in ways I'd seen only from men possessed by the black spirit. He struck at us again and again. We could not restrain him. We had to flee that place. That is when we discovered our path home was sealed. Valdo's daughter had sabotaged our return.

I do not know how long we have been trapped here. Weeks, at least. Possibly years. Time in the Atlas is a mirage.

Please, dear reader, if you have an ounce of sense in your body, do not dwell here. Return to Oriath, or wherever it is you are from. Tell of Sirus' heroism and sacrifice, and leave him, and us, to die with the secrets we uncovered.

Baran, the Faithless
[BA_51] BaranGlyph4
He has gone silent. At long last, he has finally ceased his mad mutterings.

It was inescapable. No matter where we tread, where we hid, where we sought solace, his mutterings found us. Even when we splintered, his voice wrapped around our heads like a snake, squeezing every other thought into warped shapes. I could not hear God's whispers with such constant noise.

I dare not visit him now. I want only to escape this prison and punish that insolent blasphemer, Caeserius, for her foolishness. Then, perhaps, I will return here with an army, and take the Atlas. What better show of faith is there than the establishment of a nation in God's name? And then? Whatever God whispers.

He has shown me a door. The stones. The paths they reveal. I need only find the right key.

God almighty, I am your servant. I am your sword. I am yours, mind, body, and soul, and I promise I will deliver unto you all you wish to have.

Baran, the Blessed
