Esher's Speech In Front of the Trade House
"I wish you could see Laki'ahn as I remember it. Anticipation. The calls of the beasts bellowing out over the warm airs and conversations, as we waited for the fires to burn and the battle to begin.
This was a place of great strengh and triumph. I wonder if you possess such courage.
The door to the trade house is locked, but the jeweler's door on the other side-that can be unlocked." -Esher
If this is the first age that you visit Esher continues: (if not, then he links away)
"Much to learn. First, the stone Slate. Pick it up from the pedestal and take it with you. But know this about the slate: They too are abominations, made by the Bahro creatures’ abuse of the Art of Writing. Still…they carry great power.
You will find that you can write on the Slates, anything you wish. There are some elementary symbols that the creatures understand. At least in this way, you can use the Bahro hindrance for your good.
They will take it, if you drop it. They will obey it, if you order them. They will return it, in time. As you learn, you will have more control." - Esher
