Shaman Glen, October 4, 2021

LEVEL 110

Helma, the Shaman Outcast says ancestors talk to us through the sounds of nature.  You’re out of sync with nature but once you let it into your heart, the world will open for you.  These lands used to thrive when shamans from all over lived here.  To prevent this place from perishing, Helma remained while everyone else left for more peaceful lands.  The nature spirits once revealed a prophecy about a threat coming from this mountain.  The shamans heard the prophecy and did their best to suppress the mountain’s power.  But they had no way of knowing the true source of the threat.  On the day the prophecy came true, the shamans used all their power to subdue the mountain...and that’s when the miners came.

The miners exploited the opportunity to search for precious ores and treasure.  Legend says that the ancient spirits who created this world put treasure under the mountain and left a powerful guardian to protect it.  The miners’ greed was limitless and the shamans were powerless to stop them.  That’s why they decided to seek refuge elsewhere.

The miners’ digging almost awakened the guardian of the treasure but a miracle happened when the mountain erupted with lava, taking those who disturbed its peace.  Helma was chosen to be the mountain’s caretaker and she can’t leave it under any circumstances.

According to the prophecy, the land can be saved from the guardian of the mountain, but it’s too dangerous to go into the mountain.  Helma says “your aura shines like a thousand suns on a cloudless day.  You must be the savior from the prophecy!”  A minor eruption sealed off the entrance to that part of the mountain and Helma calls on the powers of nature; air, water, earth and fire, to heed her call.  “Let the savior enter the mountain.”

The path opens and Helma says nature will protect you.

Helma, the Shaman Outcast knows the Fire Elemental suffered because of human interference.  Even though the harpies knew the prophecy, they couldn’t protect him.  Trying to remember where the shamans kept the artifact needed to pacify the mountain, Helma says when she was little, she saw an old shaman use a peace pipe to communicate with the ancestors’ spirits.  After recreating that ritual, Helma’s powers grow and she knows the artifact should be in the old shaman settlement.  But she must go alone since only shamans can enter that sacred ground.  Helma found the artifact, but it’s sealed in a case made by the royal artisans.  Succeeding in opening the case, Helma presents you with the next artifact part, the Polar Bear.

Lava Cave, October 4, 2021

LEVEL 110

The Fire Elemental warns this is a dangerous place.  He’s guarded the treasures of the ancient spirits since the mountain was created.  Only someone with a pure soul and brave heart can hope to get even a glimpse of it.  Once satisfied you didn’t come for the treasure, the Fire Elemental confides his fire essence is tearing him apart from inside.  His inner flame was meant to protect the mountain, but because of human greed, he could end up destroying everyone.

He remembers one day was particularly fine until he heard the overwhelming anguish of the mountain caused by the miners.  When the miners found out about the limitless treasure, greed took over.  They decided to take everything for themselves.  The ancient spirits tied the Fire Elemental’s spirit with the mountain, so when the miners reached its core, the Fire Elemental was filled with pain.  His wounds are so deep that he’s barely able to hold off his fire.

The shamans weakened the mountain, but they had good intentions.  He’s afraid his molten fire could cause the mountain to erupt at any moment, destroying everyone and everything in the castle.  Only the Chilling Belt can stop it, but there must be some temporary way to calm it.

The Fire Elemental says the ancient spirits foresaw this possibility, so they created a unique stone flute covered in gems.  This stone flute from the mountain depths can buy some time, but the Fire Elemental is having a difficult time remembering where it is.  Finally, the spirits’ powers helped him remember; the calming instrument is in the mountain’s treasury hall.  Rendered weak from his wound, the Fire Elemental says the hall is vast and full of unusual artifacts.  He finally locates it, but there is still one obstacle protecting it.

This was an amazing journey down Memory Lane! I downloaded MC December of 2014 (about 10 months after iPad release) and it was great to have this old mind kickstarted…I think there was more forgotten than remembered…thanks for all the work you put into this.
