on the other side of the tomb, we found a second stone, this time depicting a man with armor bearing the symbol of the silvercrown's people. this raised our suspicions that the dark crystal had something to do with this worlds counterpart, and that this man's power to overcome the monsters of this world and of the mists may be a testament to his bravery and herculean strength. the large glass case was empty. i have never been more amazed by the care that must have been taken to keep the treasure in this tomb for hundreds of years, or for it to be taken from its home without disturbing the delicate balance between worlds and the mists. how long ago were the crystal dragons that created the world of tyria? it couldn't have been much more than 20,000 years ago, which seems incredible considering that us and the elder dragons must have existed at the same time.
the last time i came here was just before the events of the kairos offensive. i remember being sent out to investigate a riddle of a jade stone at the base of a waterfall, which came with a deadly warning that the stone had been turned into a weapon. i remember the sheer beauty of the setting and how i felt the burning need to conquer the world in order to maintain it in a state of perfection. now, here i am, a fugitive from a jaded world, still searching for something that isn't even real.
emma and the leader of the adventurers met with the sculptor. emma asked the sculptor if he knew about the memories that can be resurrected from items made of dragon crystal, and the sculptor explained that there were only a few items that could be used to activate such a memory.
