Sorcerer's Plot Quest
Location: Arid Forest in Africa

1.Troubles of the Spirits

Behold! I am the Water Sorcerer!
Of course that's not my real name! Or maybe it is? It's complicated.
We sorcerers do not have personal names. We give ourselves up to the spirits, in exchange for wisdom and power.
But enough about me! Tell me about yourself, young one.
Nina sent you? That little scamp, always sending passers-by to me instead of coming herself.
Of course, I've felt evil stir among the spirits lately, too...
~
Now this, this is something I'd like to get to the bottom of.
If you have time to do favors for a little girl, why don't you give me a hand? Gather up some Tainted Spirit Aura. I'll tell you what I need it for later.
(Totem Spirits and Idol Spirits drop Tainted Spirit Aura.)
Mission: Tainted Spirit Aura x20
Yes, yes, that will do JUST fine.
So, you want to know why I asked for the aura?
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000,000
  • Gold: 19,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

2.Tracing the Energy

Long, long ago, when I was little, I witnessed a ritual known only to mediums and chieftains.
They created a Spirit Core, an orb of pure spiritual energy with the power to find and destroy evil.
I believe this is what we need to free our spirits of this evil.
How do I know this even though I'm not a medium or chieftain?
Believe it or not, I was young once! I wasn't always the well-behaved, good-natured gent I am today.
All I had to do was hide in the bushes while they did the ritual!
~
But to be honest, I don't know how to actually create a Spirit Core myself.
Nina is the Dogon medium's sister. Perhaps she knows.
Mission: Talk to [Nina]

Reward:
  • Experience: 10,000,000
  • Gold: 4,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

3.Spirit Branches

You finished with the Spirit Core already? That was fast.
Ah, I was being too optimistic. Is Nina all right?
Normally I'd say we need the grace of the spirits to keep Nina safe, but only the Dogon medium and chief can bestow that grace, so we're out of luck....
We could grow a Spirit Tree to protect her, I suppose, but that would take too long. Hmm...
I know! We'll piece a Spirit Tree together out of Spirit Branches!
~
The Pasture Spirits and Wild Spirits usually keep a few Spirit Branches on them.
You'd better hurry up, before that fool girl gets herself in any more trouble.
(Those spirits live in the Arid Forest.)
Mission: Spirit Branch x25
Must be nice, being young enough to gather sticks up so quick.
Reward:
  • Experience: 75,000,000
  • Gold: 27,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

4.The Spirit Tree

The weight of age has slowed me down quite a bit.
Thank goodness I still have my wisdom!
What's that look for?
~
Enough of this! Here's your Spirit Tree.
Take it to Nina before she gets herself killed. And let her know that the tainted spirits are beyond saving; it is now our duty to cleanse the pasture of their presence.
Mission:

Reward:
  • Experience: 10,000,000

I thank the spirits you came my way.

5.Encroaching Evil

I've been waiting for you! What took so long?
~
Never mind. The evil is spreading faster than we thought.
Give me the Spirit Core. We don't have any more time to dilly-dally!
Mission: Spirit Core x1
So this is the core...
It's making my hair stand on end! Not that you can see it under my mask, but still, pretty impressive.
You and Nina are still young, but you did good.
Reward:
  • Experience: 10,000,000
  • Gold: 4,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

6.Our Powers Combined

But how am I supposed to control this? With all the excitement around here these days, I can't seem to concentrate.
I need to find a way to calm down...
~
The Sand Sorcerer makes a mean Calming Tincture. That sounds like just the thing for me, don't you think?
Would you fetch it for me?
Mission: Calming Tincture x1
Thanks for the tincture.
...
Don't be ridiculous! Why would the Sand Sorcerer attack you?
Reward:
  • Experience: 10,000,000
  • Gold: 4,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

7.Sound Body

All right, all right, I believe you!
I suppose it's possible that THEY got to the Sand Sorcerer when they realized we were going to use the Spirit Core.
That guy always was a rabble-rouser, but he loves the Dogon as much as any other sorcerer.
The same evil that's taken over the spirits must have overcome the Sand Sorcerer...
Fortunately for us, all sorcerers are blessed by the spirits. If the Sand Sorcerer has been turned to evil, we can still save him.
All we need to reawaken his true self is some Sacred Water...
~
It's the simplest thing in the world to make Sacred Water.
A little spirit powder, a cup of water, and a little good health from a kind-hearted person.
I'll provide the water and powder, so why don't you heal up so I can use your health? Don't worry, this won't hurt a bit...
Mission: Fully heal your characters.
That's some prime health you've got there! Most delicious!
Okay, I'd better get to brewing up this water.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000,000
  • Gold: 10,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

8.Free the Sand

All right, that should just about do it.
Hope this works! I'd be sorely disappointed if the Sand Sorcerer died after all this.
~
Take this Sacred Water and pour it down the Sand Sorcerer's throat if you have to.
Well, what are you waiting for? Go for it!
Well? How'd it go?
Don't hold out on me, youngster! I can't stand the suspense!
Reward:
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

9.An Open Letter

Glad to hear it worked out! But how'd you get the water down his throat through the mask?
No matter. All is forgiven. The Sand Sorcerer wasn't himself. Happens to the best of us. Well, maybe not demonic possession, but you know what I mean.
~
Now, what's this letter he sent you?
Why don't you read it for me. I can't see too good these days.
Mission: Read [Unsealed Sand Sorcerer's Letter]
Sand Sorcerer's LetterI think too much, and feel too little. That's my problem, old friend.
I just want to protect our people from suffering. Is that so bad?

So I go after strength, and that was how the king of the spirits broke my will.
You saved me, but the one who did this to me is still out there.

I've done terrible things.
I've shown the tainted spirits the way to the village, and soon they're gonna invade.
Water Sorcerer, you have to be the one to save the Dogon people.

All I ever cared about was power, and now I may've doomed us all.
Please forgive me, and save our friends.
The man worries too much. Sure, he's doomed the village, but who hasn't at one time or another?
Reward:
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

10.Spirit King's Staff

If the Spirit King really is coming to attack, though, we are in pretty deep.
We need to cut him off before he can reach us.
I know just the thing for the job: a Spirit God's Staff. Give me that, and I'll be able to use it with the Spirit Core to hold the Spirit King off.
Only problem is, Nana's got the tribe's staff, and she's off on a quest of her own.
~
You seem pretty handy. Maybe you can craft one?
It won't be easy, but you're a good kid. I bet you could pull it off.
(You can craft a Spirit God's Staff through Quest crafting.)
Mission: Craft [Spirit God's Staff] x1
Perfect, perfect!
I KNEW you could do it! Had complete faith in you.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000,000
  • Gold: 13,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

11.First Move

Great, I've sealed the Spirit King's power. He should only have a tenth of his true strength now.
But there's a problem.
~
If you attack the Spirit King directly, the Lamenting Mask Spirits and Enraged Tornado Spirits will sneak up from behind and tear you to tiny pieces.
Perhaps you should pay them a surprise visit on the Spirit Plains, eh?
Mission: Kill [Enraged Tornado Spirit] x30 ; Kill [Lamenting Mask Spirit] x30
Wow, they gave you quite a beating, didn't they?
But since you're standing here, alive, I'm guessing you're better off than they are now, eh?
Reward:
  • Experience: 90,000,000
  • Gold: 33,000,000
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

12.Arming Up

The Spirit King will be weaker now, but I'm still worried you're not ready to face him.
Maybe I'll feel better if you had some better weapons.
~
I've heard of a man in the exotic city of Rome who can enhance weapons and armor in exchange for magical stones.
Pay him a visit, and I think you'll be ready to face the Spirit King.
Enter the number of the most prudent answer.
1: Yes, I'll visit him next chance I get.
2: I think I'd rather fight the Spirit King naked!
Mission: Answer [Arming Up] Question => 1
You see that you do. You'll need good weapons and armor if you don't want him to squish you like a bug.
Reward:
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

13.Fall of the Spirit King

Before you go off to face the Spirit King, I must warn you. Foreigners have mistaken him for a god many times, and I can't say I blame them.
You aren't one of us. If you want to run away, I would understand.
~
I see.
I will pray to the spirits that you don't die.
The lives of the Dogon people are in your hands.
(The Spirit King is at Spirits' Rest.)
Mission: Kill [Spirit King] x1
I can feel it.
The Spirit King is free of the evil taint. He is in the spirit realm now, resting and returning to his old self.
Reward:
  • Experience: 300,000,000
  • Gold: 100,000,000
  • Item: Oriharukon x10
It's rare to find a strong, kind, accomodating person like you these days.
I thank the spirits you came my way.

14.Good News

You aren't one of us, but you put your life on the line to save the Dogon people.
I must admit, that's pretty darn impressive.
~
The spirits will return to normal in time.
Please tell Nina. I'm sure she's worried sick.
