|King Coltzan says, "I must thank you again for releasing my spirit from the grip in which it was held. As you may know, I died by poisoning some months ago... but I found myself again with life--after a fashion--a few weeks ere now. I found myself here, and I have not been able to leave this room. I also found myself forced to kill anyone and anything who entered this place, even though I did not will it--my body moved of its own accord, striking down all who came here. But you have freed me... somehow."|
You say, "Why are you here?"
King Coltzan says, "It took me not long to discover the reason. In the barrel behind me lies a piece of what I think, if I am not mistaken, is the Medallion of Wind. I suppose I was summoned to prevent anyone from acquiring it... as I guess that you are here looking for it. And my will is my own now; I will hinder you no longer. There's no time to lose. I sense that you already have two of the other pieces... take the third, combine it with the other two, and it should form a map showing you where to find the gem that the Medallion holds. The gemstone is what gives it its power. The rest of the Medallion is simply a device for holding the gem; without the gem, it is just a hunk of metal. Approach the barrel, take the third piece, and then go."
(near the barrel:)
Lying atop the barrel next to King Coltzan is the centerpiece of the Medallion of Wind. "The centerpiece will show you the location of the Gemstone. Find it, then take the Medallion to the Altar of Destiny and use it. Powerful forces will try to stop you. Do not submit to them."
You pick up the centerpiece and fit it into the Medallion. It forms a more complete map, now, marking the location of the Gemstone with an 'x'. You turn to thank King Coltzan, but he fades from sight before you can say anything.
