Discovering the Wisdom Chest

You are about to discover the tradition of the cubes of amber and the chest of wisdom.

Welcome, %s. I do like to get to know my patrons. I make it a point of honor to quench a thirst, and the same goes for a thirst of knowledge too. Let me tell ya...

I heard you're a bit of an adventurer, we need homins like you to rebuild our civilization, and recover what we lost! But remember, if you wanna carry out the most prestigious duties, you'll have to find out more about the world in which we live...

...and learn about the past triumphs and tragedies that have brought us all here. You can acquire this precious knowledge by collecting the amber cubes of the chest of wisdom.

The intendant of the city will tell you more about the cubes and the chest, go and see him on my behalf.

We'll be seeing each other again, %s, because I'm a fellow keeper of knowledge myself. And if you prove worthy, I'll be only too happy to pass it on to you, like a heritage album, eh.
So you'd like to find out more about the world, eh? Well, %s, there's a price to pay for such knowledge, you know?!

Only trustworthy homins keen to progress may receive amber cubes from the initiated few.

To prove their valor and determination, each homin must undergo a rite of passage or carry out an important mission. The deserving homin will then receive a cube of amber, and learn special techniques or gain a particular privilege.

Before they undertake any rites, homins have to prove their attachment to their community. According to custom, homins must accomplish tasks given by members of the community. These tasks, called ritual tasks, may consist of crafting exercises, fighting, foraging or exploration.

Initiated homins are always happy to meet homins seeking to follow the path of knowledge. We are always willing to give you an amber cube as encouragement. To obtain this cube, you won't need to undergo any rites. On the other hand, so as to respect tradition, it would be appreciated if you could accomplish a task for our people.

Go and find %s. He'll propose you a number of tasks, choose the one that suits you best. If you choose wisely, the task you are to accomplish will also be a rite task, linked to a trial of another initiated fellow. In this way you will not only progress in the mission I propose to you, but also in the preparation of another rite.
Well done, %s! Few homins understand that knowledge is a veritable treasure worth fighting for. And though there may be sacrifices to be made, knowledge will bring great force to those who prove worthy of it.

I perceive an unshakeable will in you, I've no doubt you will be equal to the trials that lay before you! If you are, it could well be I who shall give you your reward.

Time has come for you to receive your amber cube. The reverend fellow %s, sage of %s, will present it to you. See you again, homin!
Greetings to you, homin. So you want to know more about the chest of wisdom, eh?

Well, the chest is the sum of our knowledge, it is the great receptacle that stores the cubes of amber.

The magic of the cubes was discovered by homins a long long time ago while they were looking for a way to preserve their knowledge from the trials of time and fire. They learnt to fashion the amber and enclose the knowledge inside like a insect trapped in resin.

Any homin eager to build up their knowledge must receive or find amber cubes. If %s sent you to me, it means you are one of these homins in search of knowledge.

Like other initiated homins, my occupation has made me the possessor of many cubes. I share these cubes with those who pass the trials set by the initiated few. Indeed, knowledge is a precious thing and we must be careful it doesn't fall into unworthy hands.

If you want to know more about these trials, you must meet the town guard chief. Tell him I sent you. I wish you good fortune in your quest of wisdom, %s.
I presume you've already met some other initiated fellows... You have proven your eagerness to explore the avenues of knowledge and I congratulate you.

As guardian of the knowledge of the %s, it is my honor to give you this cube as a token of what you have learnt today.

Good luck, %s, may you find the pathway to wisdom!
