Siranto, the Shogun of Ardoris, told me that he believes his enstranged wife Khasi, conspired withthe undead attacking Ardoris to negotiota a separate peace. He bade me speak to Min Liang Tan, the Minister of the Lotus within Ardoris’s central district, and after the Empress Ring which served as the token of this treachery.
I was ushered to see Shogun Siranto on the matter of The living dead. While I started to understand the mechanics of this magnificent, yet somehow syrapy city, I asked of Shogun Siranto’s wife, “Priestess Khasi”. His face went sour and “sad” in a blink of an eye. He told me of the treachery and lies of his wife and of Min Liang Tan, the Minister of Lotus, who knows the truth, and who showed the Empress Ring to him.
This seemed inportant and I wanted to have another opinion, so I went to see Priestess Khasi. The guards asked me of the password as they asked me when I ewent to see the Shogun Siranto. So I walked once again to the Peladjar Inn and asked Samael, NOT Kardan, of the right “password”, or “token”. We spoke of other things of couse, but when I asked of her “husband”, she exploded with such fury that I got scared.
“The Priestess Khasi bade me to ask the Minister of the Lotus, Min Liang Tan, about an order called the Emperor’s writ which she says proves Siranto started the war against the undead.”
Umm… Come again? So the same person has spoken to the both rulers on his behalf and the rulers never doubted the words? He might be loyal and devoted minister, but there is something fish here. Both Khasi and Siranto thought nothing ill of the Min Liang Tan. Their advicers had other thoughts…
I went to see this Minister of Lotus, Min Liang Tan at the Central District of Ardoris. He was easy to find in the south side of the Sequanna Square. We changed the pleasantries, and after that I asked about the “empreror’s writ”, which he said he had lost. Then I asked about the “Empress Ring” and he started talking. He wanted to see me at the Tower of the Shuttered Eye on the night of the new moon.
“I have uncovered treachery by one of the rulers of Ardoris, though I know not which one. The minister Min Liang Tan has offered to help; I am to meet him at the Tower of the Shuttered Eye on the night of the new moon.”
Mmmkay… I went to the Tower of the Shuttered Eye only to find army of undead in the area, and inside there were a lot more. I defeated few of them, but I got overpowered and I ran outside. So is this a trap or is the minister really inside the tower?
