Thank you for your aid. I will go with you on your hunt for the Skeleton King, but there is one condition.
If we find the sacred tomes of my order, they are mine.
If these tomes are not the key to redeeming the Zakarum faith, then they are indeed yours
Very well. I have no need of books.
Your books have no worth to me. They are yours.
That is agreeable. Though I wouldn't mind taking a look at them...

This is what fell from the sky.
Cain, meet the falling star
I found him at the center of the crater.
I found this man in the crater made by the fallen star.
This man was the falling star.
This is what fell out of the sky.
No man could survive such a thing… Who are you? What are you?
A warrior, I think… I came bearing grave news, but I cannot remember…
Your message might be all that can save us from impending doom.
