You say, 'Hail, a normal brazier'
A normal brazier says, 'What?! Who are you?! How did you see through my disguise?! Never mind that, just know it won't happen again! I'm Mortimer Placthoff, Rogue Extraordinaire, and my finely honed senses tell me that you are one of those crazed zealots that I've seen going into [Ka Vethan]. Move along, I'm busy.'
You say, 'I am going into Ka Vethan, but I am not a crazed zealot. I am an adventurer.'
A normal brazier says, 'Excellent, as am I. However, I have a different skillset that requires more discreet methods than you are being. I want to get further inside the temple, but I need assistance in order to complete my [mission].'
You say, 'What is your mission? Maybe I can help.'
A normal brazier says, 'My mission is of the utmost secrecy! I could not possibly divulge it to any random stranger who crosses my path! Rest assured, Mortimer will [complete] his mission. I have never failed yet.'
You say, 'I can help you complete your task.'
A normal brazier's demeanor changes as if to admit that he is not as heroic as he first alluded to. 'That is awfully kind of you to do for me stranger, but this actually is a part of an initiation that I have to undertake for the Wayfarer's Brotherhood. I'm trying to complete this task so I can be a part of the brotherhood. Unfortunately, that means I cannot cut corners on this and need to steal some [religious documents] that the akheva have been collecting since the rebuilding of Ka Vethan.'
You say, 'What religious documents do you mean?'
A normal brazier says, 'What?! Who told you about the documents?! That's top secret! Hm. Well, I suppose if you already know the akheva have been collecting religious documents while they rebuild Ka Vethan then you are allowed to help me. There may even be something an inexperienced adventurer like yourself can do. Inside Ka Vethan there are a large number of [tegi], [shades], and [akheva], and if you could eliminate some of them for me it might make my job easier, not that I need it you understand.'
You say, 'tegi'
You have been assigned the task 'A Sacrifice by any Other Name'.
A normal brazier says, 'With the abundance of new "sacrifices" for the akheva to use, the tegi have been spared from being the sacrifices. Typically, the tegi will give their lives happily for the Maiden of Shadows. The akheva have employed mercenaries to collect more people for the sacrifice pit. Take out a few of the tegi so they have to lean more on outside resources. This will certainly disrupt the flow of rituals being performed.'
You say, 'shades'
You have been assigned the task 'Labor Shortage'.
A normal brazier says, 'The shades congregate here not only in the service of the Maiden of Whispers, but more importantly to the temple itself. They are the custodians of these hallowed walls. With the amount of them roaming the halls, it has become quite difficult to navigate Ka Vethan without being noticed. A reduction of their numbers will help me with my task.'
You say, 'akheva'
You have been assigned the task 'Rule of Four'.
A normal brazier says, 'Ka Vethan was finally rebuilt by the akheva who call this place home. With the rebuilding of their temple, they have grown exponentially in numbers as more return to this place. For some reason, the akheva are obsessed with the number four. You will notice that around the temple, they will often group up in packs. Reducing their numbers will be a boon to everyone, not just the denizens of Luclin.'
