"The Scions of Lok have been defeated once and for all, and Southern Arun is a safer place today, thanks to the efforts of our newest heroes. On to Allemantheia, capital of the high elves! On to new battles! On to victory!"
—Seir, Valkyon Allied Forces Commander
"Despite their petty 'victories,' the Valkyon Federation's efforts will amount to nothing. Those Lok cultists were just one strand in the noose we're slipping around the federation's necks. I long to hear them choke out one last, puzzled 'why?' as they die, confused and hopeless. Atel Akaad!"
“Classes will resume at the Eldritch Academy as soon as we get this disaster cleaned up. There’s debris, scattered books, and, well, corpses…everywhere. The madness of the witches is no more, thanks to some wandering heroes from the federation. They saved the academy, but by the gods, they left a mess in their wake!”
—Wheelow, acting headmistress
“Finally, we can declare victory against the Cult of Lok. Their high priestess, Akia, is dead. Our ‘best and brightest’ found her in the Dark Cathedral, trying to resurrect Samael. (Now that’s someone I don’t ever want to see again.) One thing troubles me, though—some references in captured documents to a group called ‘Atel Akaad.’”
—Runha, Valkyon Ranger
“It should have been simple, you fools! Use Elleon’s best soldiers against him—no matter who wins that battle, we triumph! Instead, Elleon, Jelena, and that so-called ‘hero’ from the Island of Dawn are united—and on our trail. You idiots have failed me for the last time.”
“Samael was defiant to the end, of course. And he had good reason to be. Without the help of Elleon’s friend, Samael would have wiped us all out—and then he could have spun a new web of lies. Samael’s betrayal still angers me. How long has he been working against the federation?”
—Dougal, Consul of Velika
"That Valkyon ranger, Jelena, showed up again. Same bad attitude, but she gets things done. And Jelena made some new friends who are making life miserable for the Cult of Lok. They're not big on 'orders,' but if you point them in the right direction, you get results."
—Paka, Popolion Prefect
"Master: I write this in haste as I flee the Sinestral Manor. It saddens and shames me to admit that we have been routed—by the team of federation soldiers you warned us about. Our efforts to drive the vampirs insane are in disarray, and I barely escaped with my life."
—Akia, High Priestess of Lok
"The new recruits found proof: My brother Elleon lives! Everyone thought Elleon died saving the rest of us when the demons assaulted the Island of Dawn, but he somehow got off the island. He’s chasing after the cult that summoned the demons, but even Elleon can’t face them alone…"
—Leander, Island of Dawn Magister
"Success! Our agents destroyed the weapons that the Cult of Lok was using to arm their forces near Lumbertown and Oblivion Woods. Finding the Bastion of Lok was no easy task, and fighting through the hordes of deva cultists was even harder. I don’t know where you found these new agents, but please send more!"
—Hendry, Oblivion Woods Primus
