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