Dialog with One Who Is Invited Last[edit]

One Who Is Invited Last
One Who Is Invited Last: I have a task for the right person. That may be you?
<YourToon>: Well, I guess I can help you, what's the problem?
One Who Is Invited Last: This is an urgent matter, of most importance. It should only be given to a trusted person, preferably a Yuttocra, but I think in this case we'll have to make an exception. We cannot wait for someone like him to come around this time. No, you'll have to do.

I need you to get a recovery unit. For Ergo.

<YourToon>: And where would I find such a thing?
One Who Is Invited Last: The one who seeks in the right places shall be the one to find. I can only tell you where to start looking! Go talk to One Who Talks With The Past. Tell him I sent you and that it is time for you to look into the past.
<YourToon>: Goodbye.

Dialog with One Who Talks With The Past[edit]

One Who Talks With The Past
One Who Talks With The Past: There you are, I was told you would be coming. I caught all the stories from the Anansi as you destroyed their mortal bodies. I feared you might not have returned, Anansi's followers are not the easiest foes to defeat.

You have done us a great service, but I am afraid I must ask for your assistance again. I have learnt some worrying things from your effort so far.

<YourToon>: One Who Is Invited Last told me to ask you for help to look into the past. He said something about a recovery unit.
One Who Talks With The Past: It is time then. Very well.

To understand the present state of things, we must peer into the past. It may sound obvious, but unfortunately it is something many people choose to ignore in their lives. Which is why I try to make people stop once in a while, stop and look into the past, sometimes they need to look into their own past, while other times they might have to go further back. There are different ways to do this, one of them being a journey through recovered data.
Go search in the depths of Inferno and you shall find!

The data One Who Talks With The Past is talking about is hidden in a place not too far from here. The location can be found if you upload the mission information!
<YourToon>: Goodbye.

Dialog with Ergo, Inferno Guardian of Shadows[edit]

Ergo, Inferno Guardian of Shadows
Once again the sight of Ergo indicates the point of transition into a different part of this dimension of shadows. This time around, the metallic gatekeeper seems to be a bit less energetic than usual. Not the sparkly, humming and yes, a bit comical figure you have learned to know.After observing him for a second, you realize that it is the last thing that is missing. There is nothing joyful about this instance of Ergo.He does not seem to notice you at all.
<YourToon>: Greetings once again Ergo!
A slight turning of the floating head is the only visual indication that Ergo is aware of your precence. A tiny screen flickers to life.
Ergo: Inferno Guardian of Shadows: BAD SUBSCRIPT ERROR
<YourToon>: Insert recovery unit.
Ergo: Inferno Guardian of Shadows: Yes, as I was saying, Master, I have implemented the changes, but I am afraid it might already be too late. The fall seems unavoidable at this point. I receive reports of twisted spirits and nightmare spawns every day now. The political situation is as delicate as ever, I do not know what will happen to those that remain behind when the arks leave. We can only hope that whatever is in store for us, this security installation will keep the Source protected. My calculations show that my system should be able to survive, but what will become of the Xan or the land itself, we can only speculate..
<YourToon>: What sort of changes did you do?
Ergo: Inferno Guardian of Shadows: I've upgraded the nodes so that they are prepared for the increased usage that will occur as the ships leave the planet. We agreed we would need to use more power then, Master.
<YourToon>: What are these nodes that you talk about?
Ergo: Inferno Guardian of Shadows: The nodes? They are my connection points to the Source - 9 of them to be precise. They help me distribute the flow of the energy coming from the Source, to prevent anyone from using too much of it so that no harm may come to them. Of course, some find ways around the system, but mostly I am able to control the use of the Source. Here - let me show you!
The picture on the screen changes, and you see a web of blinking lights linked together in an intricate pattern.
Ergo: Inferno Guardian of Shadows: Wait! What is this? No connection? Excuse me!
Ergo suddenly seems to be very busy.
<YourToon>: What's the problem?
Ergo: Inferno Guardian of Shadows: It's not a problem - it's a disaster! My nodes are gone! No connection! I wonder what happened here. I can't even find a trace of them disappearing. My logs show that they were here just now, and then next thing they are gone. This cannot happen. It should not happen!

The upgrade couldn't have caused this. But what else could it be? The Security Unit Modification program is genetic and without control of it, we won't know what the intelligence might be up to given enough time. We must find the error immediately. I will need the code to activate the failsafe program before it is too late. Can you help me get this code?

<YourToon>: I'll help you!
Ergo: Inferno Guardian of Shadows: The code is stored in the secure areas of the largest of the Notum batteries. I must be suffering from some interference though, my scans show the area has been altered, the layout is different than what it should be. Or maybe this is showing old data? Without my nodes I can't get any updated information. I know that Libra guarded the code, according to what little info I have, he is still there. You must help me retrieve it, Master.
<YourToon>: Goodbye.
