NeoQuest II

Terror Mountain - Chia Oscuro

The Chias will all speak jibberish until you win the Wordstone from the Leximp in the Damp Smelly Cave. Once you do that, you can rest here and buy potions, weapons and armor, but these Chias don't have anything new to sell. Because of that, you may choose to skip this place altogether.


Ullistl says, "Hello! You must be a visitor to our snowy little town. Feel free to look around; we're all very friendly here. If you need a meal and a rest, I'd be glad to let you stay here for the night."
Rest Point
> "May we rest here?" (Cost: Free)
Ullistl says, "Sure, go right ahead. I can spend the night at Girjor's house; he's got an extra bed."

You rest for the night, and wake up refreshed and healthy.

Jarasth says, "Welcome to Chia Oscuro! You should talk to Sthora, the village elder, if you haven't already. She really knows her stuff. If you want potions, though, I'm your chia."

> Trade with Jarasth
Jarasth says, "As the local shaman, I make potions for the villagers. Let me know what you need, and I'll see what I can do."

Thaddeus says, "Oh, my! You certainly aren't from around here. Er... You can understand my words, right?"

> "Uh... yes, I can."
Thaddeus says, "Oh, thank goodness. Everyone in this town speaks an incomprehensible dialect, and I can barely make heads or tails of it. They all seem very friendly, though."

> "Who are you?"
Thaddeus says, "Oh, I'm terribly sorry, I forgot to introduce myself. I am Thaddeus Jurples, noted adventurer and linguist. At least, I thought I was a linguist until I encountered these confounded chias. Their language completely baffles me. All I've managed to decipher is a few words... I think 'cave' is one of them, 'near east' is another, and 'wordstone' is the third. But beyond that..."

> "Maybe there's a 'cave' to the 'near east,' with a 'wordstone' in it."
Thaddeus looks puzzled for a moment, but then says, "My goodness, why didn't I ever think of that? That's brilliant! I'd better write that down... and, um, do you think you might be willing to go investigate that cave? I would, but, you know, I've still got this language to try to translate."

[After defeating Leximp] Thaddeus says, "Ah, so you found this 'wordstone,' did you? Let me have a look at it." Thaddeus inspects the stone, muttering to himself and slowly reading over the inscriptions on its surface. Finally, he hands it back to you and rubs his eyes. "And it magically lets you understand the chias' language, just by holding it? Well, quite a remarkable thing, this wordstone is. Maybe now we can find out what they're all agitated about!"

Sthora says, "Hello! I am Sthora, the chief elder of the town of Chia Oscuro. Thank you so much for finding our wordstone! That horrible Leximp who stole it has been a problem for years, but he was never really more than a nuisance until he stole the wordstone from us."

> "What's going on around here?"
Sthora says, "Well, as long as anyone can remember, Terror Mountain has been protected by the Snowager, a great ice worm. The Snowager clears the passes, eats wandering monsters, and keeps us all safe. Every morning when it wakes, it lets out a loud roar, which lets us know that it still guards us. Then it patrols the mountain, clearing roads and passes that have become blocked by ice or rocks (there's a lot of avalanches on Terror Mountain), and eating any dangerous monsters that are around."

> "Sounds good. What's the problem, exactly?"
Sthora says, "The problem is, the Snowager stopped roaring a few weeks ago, and none of us have seen it since then. We used to be able to go all over the mountain, but now that the Snowager's not around, the monsters and other dangerous creatures are everywhere! Now we can't even leave the safety of our town. So we don't even know what's going on around the rest of the mountain!"

Aunoll says, "Hello! I have nothing useful to say, because I'm frightened out of my wits!"

Girjor says, "Hello! Well, I don't think I've ever seen people like you before. You must be from distant lands. Hopefully you can do something about the Snowager. It's been missing for weeks now! We're all very frightened. I wish I knew what was happening!"

Lveydi says, "Hello! I certainly hope you can get our wordstone back. Without it, no one can understand what we say!" She pauses for a moment. "Oh... I see you already did get it back. Well, thanks!" She smiles.

Stolfr says, "Hello! The Snowager protects us and keeps the mountain passes clear, but it hasn't been seen in a long time. We're all scared, and don't know what to do! Normally the Snowager wakes up every morning and roars, letting us know that it's still here to protect us... but a few weeks ago, it stopped."

Ynhar says, "Hello! You seem friendly. Maybe you can find out why the Snowager's disappeared? Nobody here knows, and we're all much too scared to climb up the mountain and find out!"
