Catch up on the Event so far

(Oh, wow… I've never been so close to the veil that surrounds the Heart of the Forest before…!)

Lenta, are you here? I brought the magical theory books that you wanted. These ancient entries seem pretty complex, and they're handwritten in Olde Elvish, but... I'm sure we can puzzle them out! I'm glad you asked me to help, especially since... u-um... (please don't take this the wrong way, but...) it seems like you've been losing lots of leaves recently?

Hm? Ah, thank you, Skyler, I am sure these scrolls will... Wait, the Birch Dryad's Bark should first be placed- Greenman's rot! The diagram in this tome... Harvested by twilight, not by moonlight? But I have not- That is contradicted by...

Well. I shall simply have to harvest more. In the meantime, we must continue our survey of the site. These components must be precisely positioned in order to allow the Princess to trigger the Rejuvenation Ritual from the central ballroom, or there could be disastrous-

Ah, one moment. Who is approaching?

...Mara? What is- what are you doing here?

Must I now report... every action that I take? How inconsiderate. I suspect I am here... for the same reason you are. To be close to the Heart.

In the old days... Ahhhh... in the old days, all of us Dryads... used to enter the Heart freely... to pay our respects... and gain relief from the constant bite of the Withering in our roots. But now? We are locked away from the gift of the Wizards Three... by the royal family's selfish veil... so I must simply walk... this cold perimeter.

Is this space, too... to be denied me? Am I to have... no more moments of peace? And just so that... a green-sapped upstart can tinker... with forbidden spell work around the borders! Are you so eager to ignore... the traditional magic of the Dryads?

I- I do not claim- Mara, I apologize, but I am not a sapling tripping over their roots. This ritual is requested by His Majesty King Eoin himself, and it has the potential- I believe that it will be a great boon for the Forest.

Furthermore, it is inaccurate- This separation is not the fault of the royalty. Blocking off the Heart behind a veil was a necessary precaution after the Princess's grandmother- that is, when Queen Faraienne was murdered by Losain Willowfaire-

How could you?! How could you... speak that name to me? His intent was not... to take the Heart of the Forest away from us. He never would have… He never… Oh! You add insult to all my injuries. Have I not paid the price a thousand times... for his choices on that evening?

Even now, I feel suspicious glances burning into my bark... every time I attempt to enter the palace. The shame of it all. Is it not enough... to have endured all these decades of mourning? Must I now brave these hordes of foreigners... breathing down my leaves as well? It is a cruelty.

How callous you are! You have no concept... of what this separation means to the Dryads of my generation, those of us who... truly revere the Greenman's gift. Ah, but what care you for responsibilities? You left your tree... to seek out other Remnants, risking the protection of our Forest... for personal, childish fancies! You encourage others... to simply lift themselves up... and wander away from our responsibilities! Yet you are the one… who is honored with the sacred duty… of planning this event… and I am the one… who is ignored… despite all my experience... with our solemn traditions.

And now I see that what I am told is true... that you have indeed been granted… the right to invoke ancient rituals… that have not been attempted… since the Wizards Three themselves. Oh… how can Her Highness… indulge your inexperienced meddling? When Queen Faraienne told us all... what harm these long-forbidden spells could do to the Pact that protects the Forest… and insisted that we must endure the occasional loss of one, for the protection of many… was she merely spouting empty words? Is it truly so effortless… to alter this sacred magic on a whim… with trinkets that are so easily skewed? How can it be? My roots shudder.

If you truly care for the wellbeing of the Forest… perhaps you should spend less time... hounding a lonely Dryad who is just keeping to themselves... and instead devote yourself… to our traditions. Or at least, pay more attention... to the clandestine meetings that are happening all around you.

It is not- I did not intend- I am only attempting to…

...Ah. They have gone. What... did they mean by that final comment?

About the meetings? U-um... when I was leaving the ballroom, I did see General Thelvoskye rushing to get somewhere. He seemed like he was in a big hurry, so I didn't want to get in his way. But... it did seem odd... And then, when I was taking my back route to get here, the one I found that doesn't require flying... Down past the flight training grounds, at the soft meadow where the littlest ones can practice, I saw a bunch of Elves and Avoreals gathering with him by the gemstone clusters. Before I could say hello, or anything at all, the General started screaming at me for "skulking about" and "stalking after superior officers" and I... (I just ran away.)

Or maybe... do you know Lord Twiningvine- I mean, um, Dynrial? (It feels so strange to say that, but he insists on not calling him by his new title...) He's too talkative for me... but it feels like guests from every Remnant have been meeting up with him… and always coming away with more worries than they started with. Normally, I'd chalk it up to his usual nosiness, but this isn't like his usual, um, comments. Still, generally he's helpful, i-in his own way, I mean - and he even offered to get these old books for me from his family's ancient libraries... I'm not sure. (Maybe I'm overthinking it.)

...Lenta? Are you feeling all right?

I... I am sorry. Thank you for your help today, but I do not- I cannot... that is, perhaps I should wait to complete these preparations until I am... in a better state of mind.

There are now all-new Quests on the Illuminary Gala Event Page that you can complete each day in order to uncover more clues and decide the outcome of this Event! Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for the new Dailies to appear in your account.

For more detailed information about how to participate, feel free to consult the Event System guide.

Edit: I almost forgot! We've also edited the "Reassure/Suspect" Daily Quest text so that each one is a "may be plotting" instead of a definitive "is plotting" vote, to make that more clear. So you're telling Celariel who you think may be plotting or not plotting against her.
