[Iz_01_Intro] IzaroSpeechAirlock
You stand before the gates of the Lord's Labyrinth. Within these walls, the Lady of Justice doth preside. She shall weigh your Mind in one hand, your Heart in the other. Should she find you wanting, death shall be your sentence. Should she find you worthy, you will be given the loyalty and love of an empire. The Lord's Labyrinth awaits you. Choose wisely. Strike quickly. Trust completely. And may you find the ending that you deserve.

[IZ_09] IzaroStartTraps1
A throne is the most devious trap of them all.
[IZ_13] IzaroDeath4
The trap of tyranny is inescapable.
[IZ_14] IzaroStartTraps2
The Empire awaits you with open jaws.
[IZ_18] IzaroDeath5
Delight in your gilded dungeon, ascendant.
[IZ_19] IzaroStartTraps3
You must navigate your empire through troubled waters.
[IZ_23] IzaroDeath6
Your destination is more dangerous than the journey, ascendant.
[IZ_26_Prison] IzaroPlaquePrison
Belief is the strongest metal of them all.
[IZ_27_Chamber] IzaroPlaqueChamber
There is a fine line between consideration and hesitation. The former is wisdom, the latter is fear.
[IZ_28_Church] IzaroPlaqueChurch
Shine boldly so that all might find you when the night falls.
[IZ_29_Crem] IzaroPlaqueCrematorium
Allow your wisdom to be tempered by the flames of the past.
[IZ_30_Hedge] IzaroPlaqueHedge
An emperor must know precisely where he stands.
[IZ_31_Cata] IzaroPlaqueCatacombs
An emperor must bear two blades. Hope in the left hand. Surety in the right.
[IZ_32a] IzaroGargoyleDoorRandom
Time to feed, my pet!

You killed my poor little Argus.
[IZ_34b_a] IzaroGargoyleDeath2
Goodbye, Argus. I couldn't have asked for a more faithful and loving companion.

Oh, Argus. I shall miss you.

[IZ_42_a] Izaro1_Prefight
Oh, the weary traveler draws close to the end of the path.
[IZ_43_a] Izaro2_Prefight
When the time comes to strike, an emperor strikes without hesitation. To entertain doubt is to dance with death.
[IZ_44_a] Izaro3_Prefight
An aspirant can afford to be promising. An emperor must keep those promises.
[IZ_46a_a] IzaroShrineTagRandom
The pursuit of power can be a grotesque affair.

Empires are forged in stone and fire.

Audio/Dialogue/NPC/IzaroGlyph

[Iz_19_StoryGlyph_01] LabyrinthGlyph0
"The Just Goddess presides over us all. The future of the Empire rests in her even hands."

The Lord's Labyrinth, opened by Emperor Izaro Phrecius on the second Galvano of Azmeri, 1317 IC.
[Iz_19_StoryGlyph_02] LabyrinthGlyph1
"In the impressionable youth of my reign, I was encouraged to believe in the precious nature of my imperial blood. The 'divine claret', as one fool of a courtier would repeat with tiresome regularity.

Unfortunately, my divine claret refused to pour from one cup to another. Try as I might, with a lovely procession of young and ever dutiful wives, my noble seed simply would not sprout.

Who, then, to choose as my worthy successor? With the candidates on hand either mediocre at best, or maniacal at worst, I found myself in quite the quandary.

That's when Fortune took me by the hand and led me to a forgotten tome on a forgotten shelf in the quietest corner of Sarn Library. A tome entitled, 'Ancient Traditions of Azmerian Ascendancy'.

The rest, one might say, is history."

- Emperor Izaro Phrecius
[Iz_19_StoryGlyph_03] LabyrinthGlyph2
"The Azmeri were the first culture known in history to use trials of strength, wisdom and spirit to select its chieftains.

The first Lord's Trial was a rough-hewn maze festooned with wild animals and brutal traps, crafted to test aspiring Azmerian leaders' body, mind and soul.

In conquering the adversities of the maze, a champion proved they were capable of bearing the crushing burden of chieftainship.

The first trials were simple contraptions reflecting simple times. As the Azmerian civilisation grew in number and complexity, so did the trials, from treacherous mazes to bewildering labyrinths.

Alas, there are no surviving descriptions of the labyrinth that tested and proved the worth of Veruso, Prima Imperialus. I imagine it was quite something to behold."

- Emperor Izaro Phrecius
[Iz_19_StoryGlyph_04] LabyrinthGlyph3
"The Azmeri were consummate survivors. They had to be, having been sired in the most inhospitable range of mountains in all of Wraeclast.

Unfortunate, some might say. I do not. I believe it was the making of them. And of us, their descendants.

So it is no wonder that they developed the Lord's Trial. With survival being a moment-by-moment concern, that harried people grew to understand power quite intimately.

Strong leadership is able to bridge the chasm between existence and extinction. Poor leadership might see an entire tribe vanish into that same chasm.

When the Azmeri descended from their mountains to conquer the fecund lands of central Wraeclast, they thrived and multiplied with utmost alacrity in those more forgiving climes.

For is it not poverty that teaches us how we might excel in times of plenty?"

- Emperor Izaro Phrecius
[Iz_19_StoryGlyph_05] LabyrinthGlyph4
"The custom of the Lord's Trial was upheld throughout the founding years of the Empire. Veruso's successor, Caspiro, was a low-born legionnaire, the lone survivor of a labyrinth that claimed the lives of every high-born contender, including Veruso's only son.

Caspiro proved to be every bit the emperor that Veruso was.

Alas, the Lord's Labyrinth was corrupted by those with the vanity to consider their blood more precious than their Empire. Selfish blood breeds selfish times, and the Empire paid for it with its own blood. With the Night of a Thousand Ribbons. With that most regal of cannibals, Emperor Romira.

Not any more. I, Izaro Phrecius, shall return us to Justice. I shall build the greatest Lord's Labyrinth in Azmerian history, and my successor shall be chosen by the Goddess herself.

Only when the Lord's Labyrinth is drenched in selfish blood can a true leader ascend the throne."

In the court of the Goddess, every man and woman is deemed worthy of redemption.

Though you might be shackled by the tribulations of the past, the trials ahead offer you both freedom and glory.

The future is yours, if you are bold enough to reach out for it.
[Iz_20_02_QualifyingGlyph_Chamber] LabyrinthTrialGlyphSins
The path to Justice is slender and perfidious, fraught with missteps of ambition and despair, egotism and doubt.

Should you choose this road, beware those who would waylay your hopes and disembowel your dreams.

Remain sure and remain true.
[Iz_20_03_QualifyingGlyph_ChurchDungeon] LabyrinthTrialGlyphChurch
Fear gnaws at the entrails of the faithful and the faithless alike. Fear of the unknown. Fear of the future.

An empire requires leadership that can assuage those fears, through example, through wisdom, through strength.

An emperor lights the way through the darkened caverns of uncertainty.
[Iz_20_05_QualifyingGlyph_Crematorium] LabyrinthTrialGlyphCrematorium
On the Night of a Thousand Ribbons, our finest city burned. It burned with fires lit by cruelty and neglect. It burned with shame for giving the title of 'Emperor' to a man who did not deserve it.
[Iz_20_07_QualifyingGlyph_HedgeMaze] LabyrinthTrialGlyphHedge
A leader cannot simply stride forward into the future and expect his people to be able to follow.

A leader must look over his shoulder so that he can witness and understand the consequences of the path he has chosen.

To ensure that his people are still with him. To ensure that he has not become lost.
[Iz_20_08_QualifyingGlyph_Catacombs] LabyrinthTrialGlyphCatacombs
An emperor cannot allow himself to become buried in the shadowed vaults of self-doubt.

Cannot allow thoughts of imagined disaster to spin about inside his mind like so many strife-splintered wheels.

An emperor navigates his way through the terrors of perplexity with his eyes set firmly on the rising sun.
