23 And I did not expect you to come here so soon...I had you banished in front of Arronax's castle as a test. I know that you have walked what you believe is the evil path, and I congratulate for it. But you're powerful, traveler...too powerful for me not to know which side you're on...

24 I made those choices before...I think I've changed my mind...
25 I've chosen to walk the dark path...I will continue to do so...
26 I know of your life in Arcanum, Kerghan. What is it YOU want?

29 A test? Which side? I've come here to right this wrong...
30 I hate to impose, but could you tell me what's going on here?
31 I know of your life in Arcanum, Kerghan. What is it YOU want?
32 I still confused...explain...
33 I would think not, although I know that you probably know much of my tale, evil one. And it seems you have lived up to all of my expectations...you've defeated and killed Arronax. Splendid. I knew you were strong, he was a powerful enemy. I congratulate you...

38 I still confused...explain...
39 I would think not, although I know that you've already spoken with Arronax, so you probably know much of my tale. And really, evil one, does it really matter who has been pulling the strings? Tell me...what do you think of what has transpired?

57 No, I would think not. But you, evil one, seem to have had a change of heart...otherwise, why would you be here with Arronax? I'm sure he's told you much of my tale...At least as much as he deemed necessary in order to bring you into his confidence.

69 [He laughs, an eerie sound, laced with the tormented cries of the half-dead, the echoes of places both impious and profane.] Powerful you are, very powerful. But remember the lesson I once taught you. Remember that, and listen to the words I have to say...

70 Very well...you're time is short. These words will be your elegy...
72 [He laughs, an eerie sound, laced with the tormented cries of the half-dead, the echoes of places both impious and profane.] Powerful you are, very powerful, but not very intelligent...has your small mind forgotten the lesson I once taught you.

73 Uh...okay...but then I kill you...
75 [He laughs, an eerie sound, laced with the tormented cries of the half-dead, the echoes of places both impious and profane.] This is quite a change of heart...not too long ago you walked the darker path.

78 My life, in the world you call Arcanum, seems so very distant...the memories clouded like those of a child. And a child I was, then...probing the darker magicks, given glimpses of the truths yet to come...

79 The Council knew the evil of those magicks...look at you...
80 The Council...were they right about the magicks? Look at you...
81 Look what bad magick did! You ugly!
83 Yes, look at me. And what do you see? A monster? An abomination? You've no idea what I've discovered...you see with eyes tainted by life, and all which that accursed state embodies. My vision is clear BECAUSE of those magicks you hold in disdain. And the Council...it is they I have to thank for it...

84 Why? Because they punished you? Tried to stop you?
85 But they punished you. Why would you thank them?
86 They made you go away! You bad man! Why you thank them?
88 [Again he laughs.] In your world, your Arcanum, I was powerful, perhaps the most powerful human magicker who has ever been. But to humans...cursed with our shortness of life, our brevity...what is this power? What can be learned in that impermanent spark that is our lives? Nothing. But here, in this so-called prison, there are no limits, there is no end...

89 I don't understand...
90 Huh?
92 This place...this VOID...has no time as you know it...I've been here for more than 2000 of your years, and yet I've aged not at all...I feel as I did the moment they sent me here, or as when the Dark Elves first called to me. Do you now see? Here I can do everything I did in your world, but I am unfettered by the chains of mortality that time hangs upon us...

93 Fine. Then stay here, and leave our world be...
94 But the Dark Elves thought they were calling to Arronax...
95 Good! Then you stay here...I go back...
96 But bad elfs thought they calling Arrow-nacks...
97 I truly wish I could. My reasons for returning aren't what you'd think...I have no aspirations for power or domination like your companion Arronax did...aspirations that I became the victim of. No, those are the motivations of the living, and I no longer place myself among them...

98 Then what? What is it you want?
99 Whut you want?
100 Yes, I know. Ironic, isn't it? It was on my ears that their feeble and pathetic cries had fallen. To me, Kerghan, who had defeated their master and thrown him in chains. Kerghan, who had manipulated them into subverting the Panarii and weakening the wards. Kerghan, who used them to send me the dwarves of the Black Mountain Clan, who have now finished the bridge back to Arcanum...

101 But why? If you like it so much here, then leave us alone...
102 You stay here! Leave A-r-caa-nu-um alone!
103 If only I could show to you the places I've seen, you might understand the things I say. I've been to the desolate lands, wandered by those souls who still see the lands of the living but wear the cloak of the dead. Blind to their own ends, they cry, passing through one another like shadows in the dying light of day...

105 I've traveled to where souls rot in torment, pierced with the jagged shards of life and vision, clinging to memory, regrets of the flesh. I saw that this prison was of their own making, and the key was in unknowing, in release. And still I traveled on.

107 And, finally, I came to the place where souls go to die, where the withered and worn spirits fall into an endless sea of gray, mirrored glass. And I lowered myself within, and laid there among them, and I almost did not return.

109 And do you know what I found there? There, among the silent and battered shells of the innumerable? Peace. Enlightenment. Truth. Only then did I realize that this place, this LIFE, is an abomination, a horrible distortion of the natural order.

111 This LIFE, who mothered Pain and Fear and Envy...these twisted children who exist only because we are here to feed them, to nourish them.

113 This LIFE, an afterthought, a disturbance, a mere ripple in that great, dead sea...not even the cause, but merely an effect, sending these souls upward, screaming for release from the day they are torn from its waters. The effect of what? I do not know, nor do I care.

115 Have you ever spoken with the dead? Called to them from this side, pulled them from their silent rest? Do you know what it is that they feel? Pain. Pain, when torn into this wakefulness, this reminder of the chaos from which they had escaped. Pain, at having to live. There will be no more pain. There will be no more chaos.

117 I see your soul, traveler. It screams, tattered and spent. Do you feel its pull? Do you hear its wailing? It is within my power to calm these waters, and that is what I shall do.

119 Huh? What you talking 'bout?

129 I can no longer tolerate the atrocities that this thing, this LIFE, has brought about. There will be peace. There will be quiet. Life will no longer be. And so I go to Arcanum to be an end to it, and then I will join the souls of the dead when it is done.

130 I see. You're really quite mad, you know.
131 An interesting point of view. I can see the merit it holds...
132 An interesting point of view. I can see the merit it holds...
133 I've a few questions before we continue...
134 Perhaps I could persuade you otherwise...you may be wrong...

136 Perhaps I could persuade you otherwise...you may be wrong...
137 Uh...I think I still gonna kill you...
138 What you say make sense...maybe I help you?
139 I'm very sorry, but I'm afraid that you'll be going nowhere. We have much to discuss...

142 You're point of view...I can see the merit it holds...
143 Fine. I've a few questions before we continue...
144 The time for talk is over. Let's finish this...
145 Am I? It all depends on your point of view. Take yourself for an example...you've been told from the beginning of your adventure that you're the second coming of Nasrudin, the return of the Living One...do you believe it?

146 No...I think it's all a bunch of drivel...
147 Of course, and I plan on fulfilling it...
148 It's not really important...either way, you're going to die...
149 I'm not one to discount anything, but I'd be inclined to say no...
150 Perhaps it's best that I be going...
151 I'm very sorry, but I'm afraid that you'll be going nowhere. We have much to discuss. Now, the prophecy...do you believe it or not?

152 No...I think it's all a bunch of drivel...
153 Of course, and I plan on fulfilling it...
154 It's not really important...either way, you're going to die...
156 As well you should...there are no prophecies, it's just the nature of living things to want to conform their existence to a foreseeable pattern, to attempt to exert control over the chaos that surrounds them. Life, by its very nature, disallows this. Life is an accident, the result of random chance. Therefore its nature can be no different...

157 Get to the point...what does this have to do with your insanity?
158 That's YOUR opinion...can you support it?
159 There are those who would look at all that has happened to you, and then look at you and call YOU a madman for not believing in the prophecy. You're opinion is based on what you have seen, what you know. My perceptions on the nature of life and death are no different...

160 Perhaps, but MY opinion doesn't threaten the whole of creation...
161 I can see the validity of your position...
162 I can see the validity of your position...
163 I'd have to say you're correct. Now I have a few words to say...
164 Might I ask you a few questions?
165 That only bothers you because you see your 'creation' as the natural order of things...I've told you, it's only the effect of a meddler, the incoherent scribblings of a child. Its not meant to be...

166 I suppose its possible you're correct...
167 I suppose it's possible you're correct...
168 Enough of this. Be happy, Kerghan. You're finally going to die.
169 Perhaps. I've a few questions...
171 No, you're very, very wrong. There are no prophecies, it's only the nature of living things to want to conform their existence to a foreseeable pattern, to attempt to exert control over the chaos that surrounds them.

172 What, exactly, are you saying?
173 I've heard enough gibberish. Let's finish this...
175 What I'm saying is that you don't have to obey this pattern...this PROPHECY...that life has seemingly put before you. It is a falsehood, a creation of lesser minds. You can make your own choice. It merely involves a change in the way you perceive things....

177 And what is the alternative? Joining you?
178 And what is the alternative? Joining you?
179 And what is the alternative? Joining you?
180 And what is the alternative? Joining you?
181 A few questions before we continue...
183 And why not? You're actions from the very beginning have been what most might consider evil, but what I see as valiant. You've been death's servant, as have I. Why turn from the path now? Follow it with me, and I'll show you things you've never imagined...

184 You're offer is tempting...perhaps...
185 Yes, I see now that yours is the way...let us make an alliance...
186 I'll continue to be death's servant. You're my next offering...
187 And why not? I realize that you've followed the way of the righteous, or at least that's the role you've decided to play. But you've yet to see the other side. Follow me, and I'll show you things you've never imagined...

324 Very good. You have indeed become powerful, and you will make a great ally in the struggle to come. But I've still a task for you to complete. Succeed, and we will cross together, bringing death and its truth to all of Arcanum...

325 Of course. What is it you'd like me to do?
