That Which Remains


Please note that this story contains spoilers
for the Fractured Futures event as well as
Audric's adventurer story.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Haaaah! You're finished! Circlet Denouement!

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: And with that, the bulk of the fiends threatening this area are felled.

100003 01 r04.pngRanzal: That new skill'a yers is somethin' else.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Pardon? New skill?

100003 01 r04.pngRanzal: The one from earlier? Ya ain't ever used it before, unless I'm losin' my marbles.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: I cannot comment on your mental state, but I have made rather consistent use of that skill for some time now.

100003 01 r04.pngRanzal: No kiddin'? Looks like ol' Ranzal's taken one too many blows to the head!

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: ...?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Fiends the other day... The Empire today... Conflict ever unceasing in this world... Does this all unfold because of my crimes?

100003 01 r04.pngRanzal: Audric! Sounds like Raemond's group is in a hell of a bind. Hate to ask this, but do ya mind lendin' a hand?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Of course. I shall depart at once.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Raemond!

110035 01 r03.pngRaemond: A new player, is it?! You'll find no passage here!

110035 01 r03.pngRaemond: Victory to Alberia!

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Have your senses taken flight, Raemond?! It is I! Audric!

110035 01 r03.pngRaemond: Audric...?

110035 01 r03.pngRaemond: Egads, you must forgive me! To think I turned my blade upon you!

110035 01 r03.pngRaemond: That could well be the gravest error I have ever committed...

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: (Raemond looked upon me as though I was a complete stranger...)

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: (What is the meaning of all this?)

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: With that, I must depart.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: We're counting on you, Audric. Really, I wish you could stay here and fight at my side.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: The Imperial Army is in the throes of complete disorder—and an army in such a state will soon crumble into brigandage.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: If we are to deal with this issue, it will be essential to stretch a web of vigilance across a number of locations.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: And I know the best person for that task is someone like you who is flexible and quick in his decision making.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: But it means your being absent from the Halidom, which makes me uneasy.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: You are the leader of your people, Euden; you can ill afford to feel such hesitation.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: Of course. Forgive me.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: It does not warrant hanging your head so. After all, these words are merely the ramblings of an old man.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: An old man... Audric, when you return, I'd like to speak with you further.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: ...?

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: I want to know more about who you are.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: I am Audric. Nothing more. And howsoever much time we may spend on the subject, Audric is all I shall ever be.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: That's fine. I still want to talk.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Very well. Until I return, then.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Audric, wait.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Yes? What is it?

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: I understand you'll be leaving the Halidom for a time.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Indeed, I've a critical duty to execute. But what of it?

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Can't you stop?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Why would you bring up such a thing?!

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: I...

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Cassandra...?

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Oh, it's nothing—merely a whim. I just wanted to poke you a bit.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Now hurry up and be off, dearie. I'll be waiting for you.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Oh, er...yes. Of course.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: I'll wait for you...even if no one else does.

Several months later...

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Euden, I am returned.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: The errand took considerable time, but stability should now be ensured.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: I'm sorry, who are you?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Is this a jape? It is I, Audric.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: Sorry, but I don't remember an Audric. Were we acquainted at some point?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: What are you talking about, Euden?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: You sent me on this mission to stem the Empire's tide! We spoke of it personally!

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: That was the duty that I...

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: Yes, I know I asked someone to do that... I just don't remember WHO.

100001 01 r04.pngThe Prince: I'm sorry, this is all very confusing. I think I need a little time.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: What in the blazes is going on...?

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Welcome back, Audric.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Cassandra! You remember me!

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Of course I do, dearie—though I fear I might be the only one.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: What are you saying? What is happening to me?

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: You severed the chain of causality in order to come to this world, did you not?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: I did.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: The chain of causality is the link between oneself and the world. And right now, you are not presently linked to ANY world.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: And this is a problem?

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Of the largest sort, yes. Right now, you are a sort of nowhere person; a man who lacks a face.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: As such, no one can remember you. They no longer know who you are, or from whence you hail.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: It is not so pronounced when you are together at all times, but if you spend even a few days apart, people will start to view you as a complete stranger.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: In a few weeks, they will no longer remember who you are at all.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: I see. So that's why...

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Oh, but don't worry—I'm looking for a way to reconnect you to the chain of causality. So just be patient for a tick, all right?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: No. Do not. I prefer things as they are.

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: I'm sorry?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: I care not if I am cut free of the world, nor if I become a nameless warrior.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Once the battles are fought and won, all will forget about the fool king who brought down the world.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Is that not preferable?

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: But you will remain in no one's memories! You will be adrift, lost and alone!

110337 01 r05.pngCassandra: Who would wish such an existence upon themselves?

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: It is acceptable to me, Cassandra. For I seek to leave behind not memories or fond recollections, but hope.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: I robbed my old world of hope, and so would leave it to this one.

110334 01 r04.pngAudric: Let this stand as my legacy; let it be that which remains.
