(Trigger: Brann is standing in front of the hallway that leads to the Guest Chambers, and offers the following when players approach.)
Brann Bronzebeard says: Good tae see ya again!
Brann Bronzebeard says: My notes indicate that we should find a Titan keeper down this hall.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Afore we can get started though, someone has got tae clear the hallway of all these succubi.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Don’t need any of ye gettin’ distracted when there’s work t’ be done!
Objective: Kill Concubines in the Guest Chambers
(The party clears out the various ghosts and demons in the Guest Chambers.)
Brann Bronzebeard says: Jus’ let me do the talkin’ friends.
Maiden of Virtue yells: Your behavior will not be–
Brann Bronzebeard says: Execute Observer-level access, passcode Algalon Gamma!
Maiden of Virtue yells: What trickery is this?
Brann Bronzebeard says: Oh bloody — keep her busy while I check me notes!
Objective: Subdue the Maiden of Virtue
(Trigger: The party brings Maiden of Virtue to 50% health, when she stops attacking.)
Brann Bronzebeard says: Here we go! Execute Observer-level access, passcode Algalon Gamma! Active mem’ry purge!
Maiden of Virtue says: Purging memory… complete. Welcome, Observer.
Maiden of Virtue says: Halls of Records Watcher designate Maiden of Virtue, ready for inquiry.
Brann Bronzebeard says: There we go. She ought t’ be much more cooperative now.
(Maiden of Virtue becomes a neutral NPC who offers the following gossip options in sequence:)
(Q.) What is the purpose of this facility?
Accessing. The purpose of the Halls of Records is collection and collation of arcanographic data. The facility is positioned over arcano-matrix intersections, or ley lines, which allows the facility’s instruments to record shifts in the magical substrata of world designate Azeroth.
All arcane shifts, in addition to advanced heuristic analysis to determine the causes and effects of such shifts, have been archived in this facility since it was activated by the Creators.
(Q.) So all uses of magic throughout history can be recorded through the ley lines, and they’re all recorded here?
Correct. In addition to this objective, the facility serves as one of several redundant facilities that generates a general survey and telemetry of the global arcano-matrix for use by Arcane Monitoring Aspect Functionary designated Malygos the Spellweaver.
(Q.) The machinery here is what generates the Arcanomicon AND records all magic in history? Amazing!
However, primary data collection was halted unexpectedly when a cataclysmic realignment of the global arcano-matrix resulted in much of the instrumentation within the facility malfunctioning.
(Q.) Wait, which cataclysm? There’ve been a few…
Analyzing… an unexpected exception occurred that originated at the center of the primary supercontinent, which followed a steadily-increasing trend of minor exceptions in a localized area around that center. Incomplete data suggests that the supercontinent was fragmented as a result of this exception, resulting in a drastic realignment of the arcano-matrix on a global scale.
(Q.) That sounds like the Sundering then, from over 10,000 years ago…
Verifying… verified with 99.5 percent accuracy.
(Q.) What happened to the facility?
Accessing. Timestamps indicate that fallout from the exception event led to a chain-reaction of critical failures in most of the facility’s instrumentation. Priority repair protocols indicated that raw data was to be preserved if analysis was not possible, and thus data collection continued with errors while instrumentation was restored to functionality. Repair processes are currently halted.
(Q.) Why are the repairs halted?
Records indicate that before repairs could be completed, Creator-level commands were issued that repurposed large portions of the facility. Heuristic analysis was replaced with an encryption protocol. Automated processes were given new commands in architectural reconstitution of the facility, leading to an unorthodox and inefficient construction. Further analysis is necessary to determinate the full extent of repair necessary to restore standard operations.
(Q.) Who issued the commands to alter the facility and encrypt the data?
Creator-level commands are not designated with a username. Records indicate the commands were received at local terminals.
(Q.) But the only Titan who’s been on Azeroth since the Sundering is… Sargeras…
(After selecting the final gossip option, the dialogue ends. This triggers Brann to issue the following lines and causes the Maiden’s Memory Engram item to become a lootable object on the floor.)
- The Maiden’s Memory Engram (Toy)
Use: Summons an image of the Maiden of Virtue, who will provide a piece of trivia about Titan operations near your location. 1 hour cooldown.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Now I understand! When Sargeras possessed Medivh, he was able to trick th’ facility systems intae giving him full reign!
Brann Bronzebeard says: The only remainin’ question is why?
Brann Bronzebeard says: I’ll keep pumpin’ her for information while you look fer more clues.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Now then, lassie, let’s get tae know each other better.
