  • A Glimpse Beyond
    • The animancers at the Sacred Stair have been using luminous adra in a variety of strange experiments. They're in need of volunteers.
  • Speak with Flaune Elette atop the Spire of the Soul-Seers
    • Director Castol has asked that I assist a group of animancers in Neketaka. They conduct their experiments atop the Spire of the Soul-Seers, in the Sacred Stair district. Flaune Elette, their lead researcher, will be waiting there for my arrival.
  • Begin the animancy experiment
    • Flaune asked me to speak with her at the Spire of the Soul-Seers once I'm ready to give the experiment a try.
    • Flaune claims that her group of researchers have devised a way to channel my ability to navigate the In-Between to... well, launch me from one adra pillar to another. They'd like me to participate in the experiments.
  • Find a way back to the physical realm
    • Something went very wrong with the experiment. I've appeared somewhere in the Beyond.
    • Looks like I managed to get myself stuck in Rymrgand's domain - something the Beast of Winter is happy to gloat about.
    • There is no obvious exit from this place. I think I'll have to convince Rymrgand to release me.
  • Speak with Flaune
    • I've made it back in one piece. Flaune will want to hear what happened, though I doubt it's anything like what she expected. 
  • Return to Director Castol
    • While the animancers prepare their machines for further experiments, I can report to Director Castol for more work. He'll be at the Vailian Trading Company headquarters in Queen's Berth.


End States

  • My old crew's dead and gone. Maneuvering the ship may be more difficult on my own, but at least my company is improved.
  • I didn't have the time to waste on finding my old crew. I left them on the island.
  • I couldn't save all of my old crew, but at least I won't be managing the ship entirely on my own.
  • We lost plenty of people in the wreck, but I managed to find a few of the old crew.

      Whatever it is that you do. Choosing the Aggressive choice with "Let Me Taste Oblivion" at the end. You WILL die, and you'll have to load up a save after that. People are uninformed when i checked the details, regarding whatever your choices are, he wouldn't end you. He will by one of the many choices. Be aware of this, and don't listen to people who lack proper research. So you avoid this...cause my save was before i sat there fighting against a really, really unsettling and boring boss fight who did two things. Auto-Attack bonanza and some sort of super crappy debuff. Just put your boy, Eder up front and keep him above half HP. Unless you want him to fall by a unfortunate critical hit or something from the fat boss. I was a chanter, so i had less problems with it, concerning to summon minions and shooting from distance while buffing. These are just some experience notes i would like to give people to keep them up to date regarding this. Should you see other pages that says your choices doesn't matter and he'll let ya go. Raise an eyebrow first, make a save right after you've kicked the boss's arse, and attempt all the choices there is to debunk mine if so you wish, should you not believe me. I just don't like it when people make pages on sites without good amount of research and information, it concerns/worries me. Take care.
