|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|The Dain monster mission series may be completed in any order.
Dain`s Historian Duggans can be found in a small room near the throne area at the top of Icewell Keep. (He /cons Coldain faction, but will not attack no matter what your status. His roommate may, however.)
This mission in particular has you playing Coldain taking part in a ring war.
You say, 'Hail, Dain`s Historian Duggans'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Welcome ______, welcome! It's always a pleasure to speak with an Outlander such as yourself. All Coldain appreciate the services you have rendered us and the blows you have dealt to our Giant foes. Have you come to learn more of our [history]?'
You say, 'What history?'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'The Coldain are a proud people, and with good reason! We have proven ourselves time and again in this unforgiving land, flourished and thrived. Of course all Coldain must acknowledge the [leadership] that has brought us through the dark times we faced.'
You say, 'Leadership?'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Yes indeed, we have been blessed with leaders beyond compare. All Coldain know the story of Colin Dain, and I'm sure you have heard of our great first leader. But even after Colin fell the Coldain have always been guided as if by Brell's own hand through each Dain's reign. Would you hear more about [Dain Frostreaver the First]? Or perhaps [Dain Frostreaver the Second]? And who can forget [Dain Frostreaver the Third], the father of our current magnificent leader?'
You say, 'I want to hear about Dain Frostreaver the Third'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Dain Frostreaver the Third, Sire to our King the Dain, will always have a hollowed place in Coldain history. In our most desperate moment as a people his courage and leadership enabled us to overcome an overwhelming [host] of Giants sent against the very heart of our strength. That day will be forever honored by all Coldain.'
You say, 'A host of Giants?'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'Indeed, a mighty host! There came a day during Dain Frostreaver the Third's reign when the Lords of Kael gathered their strength to crush us and sweep us from this continent. They marched right to the entrance of our fine city. Only the [actions] of our Dain saved us from destruction that day.'
You say, 'What actions did he take?'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'If you would learn more I can help you to [relive] that fateful day.'
You say, 'Let me relive it'
Dain`s Historian Duggans says 'A wise choice indeed _____! Happily Brell has gifted me with the power to bring the exploits of our great leaders to life. Prepare yourself and let me know when you have [composed] yourself.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Defense of Thurgadin'.
Dain the Second's daring raid into Kael did indeed halt the Giants' attacks for a time. But eventually the incursions resumed and increased. At last the Giants began to mass for an assault on Thurgadin. Dain Frostreaver the Third led his army out into the Great Divide to face the Giant Hosts. Each Dwarf present knew that if the Dain were to fall, or if the Giant Warlords were to reach the waterfall area all would be lost for Thurgadin.
You are given a list of six dwarves to play:
Dain Frostreaver III (required)
You say, 'I am composed'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Great Divide.
Shortly after zoning in you will see this emote:
A loud rythmic crunching sound echoes off the mountain sides. The Giants are on the move!
Speak with General Lanix 0/1 (Great Divide)
General Lanix is located near the waterfall (where you zone in).
You say, 'Hail, General Lanix'
General Lanix says, 'A fine day for a battle my Lord! Four Units of the finest Coldain soldiers are in the field to stand against the invading Giant armires. Just give me your [commands] and I will pass them on to the Units.'
Your task 'The Defense of Thurgadin' has been updated.
(What dialogues go on from here?)
Examples of commands (you may want to make hotkeys for these - there are Units A, B, C, and D. Positions One, Two, Three, and Four.):
You say, 'Unit D Forward'
You say, 'Unit B to Position Two'
You say, 'Unit A to Position Four'
Kill the Kromrif Chieftain 0/1 (Great Divide)
