|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is a shared task which begins with a disheveled human at the zone-in of Korafax. It is the third of a series of four (following the task "Kill the Corporifers") and is required for SOD progression. |
You say, 'Hail, a disheveled human'
a disheveled human says 'Please, no more! I can't take any more! Just let me die. Let me kill [them] too. It's just too much.' His voice gets weaker as he speaks until he can no longer be heard, but his lips keep moving and tears continue to stream down his face. 'Too much.'
You say, 'Them?'
a disheveled human says 'So many [others], so much pain. Some break too easily and die. Some never break and they die too. Some of us. . . some of us hold on long enough to be worthy, but not so long that their twisted magic can't do its work. All I can see is their bodies writhing in pain. All I can hear is their screams. But the worst is the smell. Please, please kill me. Don't take me back in there.'
You say, 'Others?'
a disheveled human says 'I, I don't know anything about them. We never had the strength to speak to each other.' He looks up at you, his mouth forming words as if pleading silently. 'You, you can't be real. It's another madness dream. That's how they get to you. They twist your body until the mind conforms. Once they match, twisted and scarred body and demented mind, then they seal it with magic. Convert enough and the rest are easy for them to change. Not easier on their victims, no never that, but it is faster. Fewer [mistakes].' He starts to shiver uncontrollably. 'Oh, the mistakes.'
You say, 'Mistakes?'
a disheveled human says 'I can't, I just can't talk about that. They die. Usually they die.' He once again looks you in the eyes and seems to gather strength from something he sees there. 'If you are not a delusion, if you are real. But then, you can't be.' He looks back at his feet. 'If only someone could stop them. [Escape] doesn't work. It must be death. If you aren't here to kill them, then kill the prisoners.'
You say, 'Escape?'
a disheveled human says 'Heh. Ha!' He looks up at you, mania present in his eyes. 'Look! I'm free! Trapped here in this darkness. I can't sleep because my dreams are what they did to us. At least awake I can talk to imaginary people like you. You're different than the others I've thought up. I like that about you. You're not a hero, at least not what I pictured. But I shall still send you out on your [heroic journey]. You shall save me, save them, and defeat the evil that has driven me insane. Even if you are just a fragment of hope conjured from what remains of my mind.'
You say, 'My heroic journey...'
a disheveled human says 'Go forth, my savior! Rescue my mind from the clutches of darkness!'
You have been assigned the task 'Free My Mind'
For a brief moment the human's eyes gain focus and he looks directly at you. He says one thing that seems unclouded by whatever evil has done to his mind. "Help me. I want my mind back!"
Find a way to restore the human's mind 0/1 (Korafax, Home of the Riders)
A "Bloody Note" drops randomly from most trash mobs. It is NOT pre-lootable. (The rest of the items involved in this task ARE pre-lootable.)
The Bloody Note reads:
Attempt to reset these minds, give Mindshear two attempts per body.
This might save resources, allow faster conversion procedure discovery.
Tried the Mindshear extract alone. Result, as expected, was not useful.
Added new Bloodbind liquid. This produced entertaining, but not useful,
results. Perhaps there is a component that must be added first. Some
additive that would acclimate the subject to the Mindshear. Perhaps our
own blood, or better discordling blood, would work. I will try that next.
Deliver 1 Discordling Blood to the disheveled human 0/1 (Korafax, Home of the Riders)
This is dropped by discordlings throughout the zone.
a disheveled human smears the thick blood over his face. He shakes his head, flinging the liquid in all directions. He clears it from his eyes before settling back into his huddled position.
Deliver 1 Mindshear Slime to the disheveled human 0/1 (Korafax, Home of the Riders)
This is dropped by mindshear attendants.
a disheveled human chews the slime. He chokes and gags at the flavor and thickness of it. He drops the remnants and immediately forgets what it was he was just doing.
Deliver 1 Bloodbind Potion to the disheveled human 0/1 (Korafax, Home of the Riders)
This is dropped by vitrik mobs.
a disheveled human looks at the potion bottle for a long moment, obviously fascinated by the shape of the bottle. After a moment he forgets about the bottle and it hangs limply in his hand. It is several minutes before he re-discovers its presence and drinks it down in one gulp.
For a very short while you noticed the light of full understanding in Talbot's eyes.
Your faction standing with Herald of Druzzil Ro got better.
You have successfully been granted your reward for: Free My Mind
Anarchy Crystal Slice
The shared task "Find Telivar" follows this one.
