Quest[edit]

You arrive in a circle of standing stones, floating high above Novia on the Isle of Storms, where you are approached by Arabella.

Greetings, Avatar, my name is Arabella! We have waited far too long for you to return!
It has been far too long ere your last visit!
We must speak of your destiny!

When you speak to Arabella, you will add a note to your journal about arriving in this new world.

Greetings, avatar! We have waited far too long for your return. I am Arabella, and I am here to guide you.

Oracle

Farewell

Our business here is not yet concluded, Avatar! We must discuss your destiny...

Ready to begin

Very well... Avatar, if thou art entrusted to deliver an uncounted purse of gold, yet along the way you meet a starving beggar, what would you do? Truthfully deliver the gold, knowing the trust in thee was well placed, or Lovingly give the beggar a coin, knowing it shall not be missed?
Avatar, if in a hard fought battle, if thou managed to disarm thy mortal enemy, who is a cruel murderer, in a duel to the death, and now he is at thy mercy, what would you do? Would you show Love by permitting him to yield, or Courageously fight to the end, whatever it may be?
Avatar, suppose thou hast sworn an oath to stand at your post during a battle, yet your friends were suffering in a close pitched skirmish nearby. What would you do? Show Courage, and aid thy comrades in their hour of need, knowing thou may deny it later, or refrain, so thou may Truthfully state you followed orders?

I wrote a new entry in my journal.

If you choose Truth twice, you will receive the following message:

Very well, Avatar, you have selected the path of Truth! The settlement of Blood River awaits you through the nearby lunar rift; it is time for you to travel on to meet your fate! Once you travel through the rift, you will have knowledge and equipment suitable for the path of arcane magery that you have chosen. Farewell for now!

If you pick Love twice, you will receive the following message:

Very well, Avatar, you have selected the path of Love! The trading post of Solace Bridge awaits you through the nearby lunar rift; it is time for you to travel on to meet your fate! Once you travel through the rift, you will have knowledge and equipment suitable for the path of bow and arrow that you have chosen. Farewell for now!

If you select Courage twice, you will receive the following message:

Very well, Avatar, you have selected the path of Courage! The village of Highvale awaits you through the nearby lunar rift; it is time for you to travel on to meet your fate! Once you travel through the rift, you will have knowledge and equipment suitable for the way of blades and shield that you have chosen. Farewell for now!
Your destiny has already been chosen, Avatar! It is time to meet your fate!

Travel down the path to the Lunar Rift and double-click the glowing portion within. You will be transported according to your choice with Arabella.
